On the way to the hotel. I felt a little bit sluggish after the flight but the taxi driver drove like a car thief so
I was full of spirit (and slightly scared to death) when we got to the hotel.
The Cosmopolitan Hotel sign. We had a couple of free nights from the hotel booking website the we often use but the standard price
was around 1,000 HKD per night. Not bad for a 4 star hotel we thought.
This is my room. It also had a large flat screen TV and a glassed in shower, but no bathtub.
But the best thing was...
THIS! That orange thing is a smartphone provided by the hotel. A very convenient thing for foreigners without any sort of international plan
for their normal cellphone. It ran a software solely for tourists in Hong Kong and it was filled with goodies like maps, free calls locally and to
eight other countries, as well as information about many touristic spots in Hong Kong.
But the best thing was the WiFi Hotspot service. The phone could serve as a WiFi access point so I could have internet on my phone wherever I went!
After checking in then we went out to get some snacks and breakfast for the next day.
What the... I'm quite sure they would have to close within a month if they decided to open up a store in the west...
