This former jail makes lock-up a luxury with heritage architecture and notable house restaurants.
With just ten suites (the smallest measuring in at 880 square feet), Hullett House blends Chinese and British influences in a classic white colonial heritage building dating back to 1881. Each room is individually decorated, from the Ma Wan Suite, paying tribute to Imperial China, to the Pui O Suite, showcasing the jazz aesthetic of old Shanghai. Though distinctive in style, all accommodations share one thing in common: private balconies or spacious terraces with garden, harbor and/or skyline views. The property boasts seven drinking and dining venues, including Mariner's Rest, offering cocktails in the original jail cells of this building that once served as the city's Marine Police Headquarters.
