The discrete charm of Hong Kong hotels

Andrée Putman, the popess of contemporary design, has just opened a boutique hotel apartment in Hong Kong soberly called The Putman. For a very upscale long-stay clientele, it offers its long-term travelers comfort, space and design that is chic and voluntarily neutral, especially created by the “Coco Chanelof interior design”. “This hotel is for those who cannot live outside their homes without establishing themselves a bit,” explains Andrée Putman. At the heart of hectic Central, these top luxury cocoons are subdivided into three distinct spaces: the room, the bathroom and the salon, with a fully equipped Siemens and Krups kitchen. The 28 apartments measuring 300 square meters each offer a unique view of the city through its picture windows. Breakfast service, housekeeping, pressing: every care is taken to make life easy for the traveler looking for well-earned rest. Such tranquility comes with a price: 4,750 euros a month. The Putman is a joint effort of Andrée Putman and National Properties, the real estate branch of Citigroup banks. After this eponymous property, the famous architect will concentrate on the makeover of Morgans, Ian Schrager’s first boutique hotel in New York.
