The guest rooms at L’hotel élan are sleek and minimalist in design style, incorporating natural elements and a Japanese aesthetic. Stone flooring is used in the entryway and bathroom, while the bedroom features a semi-rough wooden floor, textured beige walls, high ceilings and clean-lined wooden furnishings, creating a calm and tranquil space. Accoutrements and decoration is limited, with a small fossil framed on the wall, and a gray upholstered occasional chair in the corner. A wooden bench on the protruding window ledge also offers a pleasant place to recline in the sun and browse through the book on Hong Kong geoparks presented on the desk. A floor-to-ceiling brown leather backdrop frames the king-size bed, which is opposite a 40-inch flat-screen television inset in the wall. The mini bar, glassware and snacks are all hidden in a wooden credenza, minimizing clutter in the room, while advanced technological appointments abound, like an iPad, dimmable overhead lights, floating wall sconces, and a window between the bedroom and bathroom that can switch between frosted and transparent. A copper panel with under lighting spans the wall, adding a touch of glam to a room that otherwise practices considerable restraint in its design.
