Review: American Express Centurion Lounge Hong Kong

To the point

The American Express Centurion at Hong Kong Airport has just opened and we've had a look around!

American Express Centurion Hong Kong

Accessible to American Express’s American Express’s PlatinumMD card (or its corporate version, also available for consumers , the Card from Platinum entrepriseMD from American Express ),

We’ve already visited the one in San Francisco, de New York (La Guardia) and de Las Vegas.

Mainly located in the United States, American Express is beginning to deploy this concept in international airports.

The American Express Centurion Centurion is available at the following locations: card s for access to the American Express Centurion

Only 2 card s allow their holder to access the lounges (accompanied by 2 free guests) :

Access

The holder and 2 guests can access the lounge. Wrongly, I thought that children under 3 years old could access the lounge for free (and wouldn’t be counted as guests).

Having just taken with me my card de Platinum personal – having left in Montreal my card de Platinum for business – and span class=”term” data-original-term=”dm95YWdlYW50″traveling with my spouse, my mother and our two children, two people “were too many”. No negotiation possible with the staff at the entrance of the lounge.

The spaces

A meeting room, as well as a more intimate room are located along the entrance corridor of the lounge.

Sitting areas

The lounge was particularly busy. Hard to find a place to sit (except at the bar).

To me, the buffet wasn’t “exceptional”.

Centurion Space

Another space is only accessible to people with a card Centurion (this card is offered by invitation only by American Express to people with a high level of spending – more than $250,000 per year). So I couldn’t access it.

Conclusion

I had high expectations for this lounge American Express Centurion from Hong Kong, especially after our visits to the other lounges Centurion.

I must admit I was disappointed:

  • Few spaces to sit
  • An ordinary buffet
  • Tables not cleared

However, the choice of drinks was up to the task with the well-stocked bar.

To me, it’s not “a big American Express “span class=”term” data-original-term=”c2Fsb24=”salon”. Let’s hope it’s only “youthful mistakes”!
