Editor's Review: Mori Mori Serviced Apartments



Lightly hued and brilliantly illuminated, guests bask in the warmth of a homey and cosy intimacy at Mori Mori Serviced Apartments.

After a long day at work, it’s a blessing returning to Mori Mori to wind down with its understated elegance and homey flow.

Situated within walking distant of the iconic Times Square, the nightlife prime area of Yiu Wa Street, and the exciting Happy Valley racecourse, Mori Mori, on 46 Morrison Hill Road, provides residents with the rare enjoyment between connectivity and tranquillity with 18 tastefully designed rooms.

Mori Mori, the first serviced apartments owned by Emperor Group, started around two years ago. It is a modern transformation of a Tong Lau, and the resulting look is contemporary, yet remains approachable.

The journey starts with a silent and enigmatic pitch-black entrance and lift area on each floor, but inside the apartment is a colour story of the exact opposite.

I’m staying on the third floor where it houses the only two units in the building with a 700 square feet private terrace.

Exuding a wonderful air of warmth, the 680 square feet indoor area is decked out in a balance of cream and neutral palette where its light tone is offset by a handful of wooden wardrobes and cabinetry. The interior is further warmed up with a selection of modern wall lights to combat the bustling hub at the heart of Causeway Bay and Happy Valley.



Another highlight is the apartment configuration. From the kitchen, living room to the bedroom, all zones in the flat are open plan and cohesively connected through the same colour story to ensure different zones sing the same tune.

The space is well-organised without walls, but the smart use of furniture ensures every area complements each other with an easy transition from zone to zone.

It starts with the open kitchen, equipped with wooden panels for storing things to make the room appear uncluttered. The cooking area is distinctively divided from the living room by a modest dining table. Behind a three-seat couch is the bathroom wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass that allows for more closeness between stayers.

The calming hue continues to the sleep area. It is divided by a sliding floor-to-ceiling door attached with a mirror, serving to bounce more light to the living room as well as deepening the depth of the space.

Thanks to the connected structure, the modest-sized flat is perfect for small groups of six to eight to entertain in; whereas the outdoor area is ideal for barbecue parties for larger numbers. The 11-storey building is crowned by a rooftop with a barbecue area available for all residents.

If you are in need of some downtime, Mori Mori could be your better-than-your-home away from home.
