Thai hotel management firm ONYX Hospitality Group has opened a new hotel in Hong Kong to expand its business.

Situated along the tram line in Sheung Wan, the newly opened Y Hotel Hong Kong is equipped with 96 rooms.

The non-smoking rooms are divided into several categories, such as Classic and One Bedroom Harbour Suite, among others.  

The rooms feature a workspace along with a LED TV set and a capsule coffee machine.

The first floor of the hotel houses Source Bar, which is currently soft opened.

In a statement, ONYX Hospitality Group said: “Situated on Hong Kong’s famous Dried Seafood Street, a section of Des Voeux Road West in the Sheung Wan and Sai Ying Pun area, Y Hotel is just steps away from both buses and the ‘Ding Ding’ tram stops, and is a three-minute walk away from the Sai Ying Pun MTR station.

“Slightly further afield is the Central Ferry Pier with links to Kowloon and elsewhere.
