I stayed at Penta Hotel Tuen Mun for over 10 days. It is located just a 3-minute walk from Tuen Mun MTR Station, with nearby shopping malls, bus and tram stations, and even a McDonald’s and a cheap cinema. Everything from clothes, supplies, and food is within reach, making it an ideal place for long-term travelers on a budget.
Yes, Tuen Mun is the territory of Mountain Chicken in “Young and Dangerous”. It takes about half an hour to travel to popular areas (Mong Kok, Tsim Sha Tsui, etc.) from the hotel by MTR. Since it is the last station, there is always a seat. However, it can be quite inconvenient when you have to take the MTR back from other places all the way to the last station.
Penta Hotel Tuen Mun officially opened in August 2017 as the fourth Penta Hotel in Asia after Kowloon, Beijing, and Shanghai.
It has a total of 16 floors and 298 rooms, and its location is both strategic and convenient. Why do I say that? It is located right next to Tuen Mun MTR Station, tram station, and bus station. I even took a bus directly to Hong Kong Disneyland. Super convenient!
The lobby has a retro industrial style design, and the service staff are quite friendly. Although the hotel displays a gym and a restaurant, I didn’t use them, nor did I make a special effort to visit them. I always feel that taking photos in public spaces of Hong Kong hotels is a bit strange.
The room key is controlled by a magnetic card, and you need to swipe the card to select the floor in the elevator. You can only select the floor of your room, making it very secure. However, my room card became invalid on the second day, and I had to go to the front desk to swipe it again to use it.
Penta Hotel Tuen Mun Maintains an Industrial Style Design in its Rooms
I really like the simple modern industrial design of the room. Compared to hotels in Taiwan, the room space is slightly smaller, but compared to hotels in popular areas of Hong Kong, it is definitely larger! Happiness is indeed more apparent.
Basic supplies such as tea bags, kettles, hangers, and safes are provided, and there are sockets for charging on both sides of the bed. There is also a small desk that can be used, which means that business travelers do not have to worry.
The TV is still very boring, and the contents of the TVs in Hong Kong and Macau hotels are not very interesting. I really miss Taiwan’s more than 100 channels to choose from!
Penta Hotel Tuen Mun Has a Beautiful and Somewhat Absurd Bathroom
The bathroom and toilet space is large, with a beautiful table and supplies such as towels, disposable toothbrushes, and shampoo in the shower room.
I think their bathroom is quite humorous. It adopts a dry and wet separation design, but the shower room… does not have a door, yes, not even a glass door. What’s amazing is that water won’t leak out! Other hotel shower rooms have glass doors, and the towels on the floor outside the door are always wet and need to be replaced by cleaning staff.
Where is the humor? Because the bathroom space is large and has a dry and wet separation, the bathroom door adopts a heavy black iron sliding door, and there is a metallic rolling sound when pulling it. Sometimes the bathroom door cannot be closed tightly. There is a sign on the door that says “Please close the door when taking a bath”. In addition, there is a fire sensor on the ceiling of the bathroom corridor, which seems to be frequently activated by the smoke from the shower.
As long as the door is closed tightly, there is no need to worry about accidentally triggering it. Taking a shower here is comfortable, the lighting is beautiful, the atmosphere is good, and the space is spacious.
Would I Recommend “Penta Hotel Tuen Mun”?
For travelers who don’t mind commuting time, I would definitely recommend Penta Hotel Tuen Mun, especially for those who are on a long-term deep travel with a limited budget. It costs less than NT$2,000 per night and is cheaper than some hotels in Taiwan!
But if most of your itinerary is planned in busy areas or on Hong Kong Island, living in Tuen Mun will take a very long time to commute. I suggest that you plan your itinerary from Hong Kong Island to a location near the airport, and then move to Penta Hotel Tuen Mun for the latter part of your trip. This way, you can save money and stay comfortably.
There are three large shopping malls connected by a footbridge nearby, and you can get everything you need there. There is even a Hong Kong branch of a Korean barbecue restaurant inside the mall, with prices similar to those in Taiwan. It is very cheap in terms of Hong Kong food expenses.
