American Express Centurion Lounge
Amex Centurion Lounge Hong Kong Review
The Hong Kong location of Centurion is located in terminal one near gate 62 of Hong Kong international Airport. I found it slightly difficult to find before asking someone but there are signs I should have paid more attention to. In comparison to other lounges in the Centurion Lounge network, this one is pretty middle of the road. When entering the lounge, the attendants will ask to see your ID, boarding pass & American Express card. (Centurion & Platinum members are free, other Amex cardholders pay $50 per person.)
Check-In and First Impressions
The agent checking me in was very quick and friendly, this was easily the shortest wait time I’ve ever had. As a whole the demeanor of the staff is very welcoming and everyone has a smile. The manager at the desk noticed me snapping photos and asked if I would like to be in a few. The first thing I noticed upon entering was the awesome view and floor to ceiling windows.
Amenities and Seating
The seating here is a wide-open space with different types of tables and chairs but definitely nothing offering any privacy or a chance to stretch out and get comfy. The comfort level is something I’ve always appreciated about the Las Vegas location that was missing here. There are a few private offices in a long hallway that could provide privacy. The bar here is much longer than other Centurion lounges and definitely has more seating.
Food and Drink
There was a decent assortment of breakfast food including both traditional eastern and western options. I could have eaten an entire plate of their chicken dumplings if only I knew which sauce to use. There must have been 15 condiments to choose from and I’m pretty sure the only one I could identify for certain was ketchup. I was also really happy that they had a self service fridge with cans of soda and beer so I could take a Coke Zero for the road. There was also a freezer with mini ice creams and I may have taken one of each flavor for a total of 4.
The Centurion Lounge is consistently one of the best brands. While they have become more crowded over the years it’s still one of my most valued Platinum card perks and I enjoyed the lounge at HKG. I do wish they had more comfortable seating options. The food and staff was solid so overall I’d say it’s worth a visit.
