The iclub Fortress Hill Hotel is a contemporary select-service hotel centrally located amidst Hong Kong's Fortress Hill and North Point districts – a prime center for business and entertainment – with easy access to Causeway Bay.
The term "select service" indicates you get bed but not breakfast. In fact, there are no restaurants or bars on the property. However, there are plenty in the immediate area. Plus, plenty of amenities on-site to meet your needs.
This hotel – one of a number of iclubs in the city – provides a comfortable and modern stay.

iclub offers 338 chic and trendy guestrooms. The contemporary, sleek design with plenty of glass and diffused lighting creates a refreshing and dynamic environment. The iSelect Premier and iPlus Premier rooms provide a partial view of Victoria Harbour or the expansive view over the eastern part of the island, including Causeway Bay and North Point.
Modern facilities include LCD TV, multimedia connectivity panel with USB and audio connections, complimentary WiFi access and local telephone calls, plus a smoke-free environment.
The hotel is distinctive for offering its iclub Mobile Key Check-in service. With the innovative mobile key technology, guests will be given the option to use a mobile device for check-in service or a traditional key card or both to access their guestroom.
This technology provides guests with the convenience of accessing their hotel rooms using their mobile device, which will automatically unlock the door, completely bypassing the front desk and possible check-in queues.
When guests are booked on the iclub website and register for the mobile key check-in service, on the day of arrival, the guest will receive a text message on their mobile device giving details of their room number.
Upon arriving at the guestroom, the guest simply needs to call that number and an audio signal will be played back, which will be detected by a sensor to open the door. Mobile key check-in service is available to both smartphone and non-smartphone users.
While there's not a great deal to see or do in the way of tourist attractions in Fortress Hill itself, it only takes a few minutes to ride on the MTR to reach Hong Kong Island's major destinations.
For visitors with more time on their hands, the tram threads its way east and west through Fortress Hill.
All in all, this iclub hotel provides both an economical and hi-tech stay on Hong Kong Island.
