ALE and 8 Telecom, the business partner, proposed a converged solution integrating WiFi, telecommunications and data switches.

  • Country: China, Hong Kong
  • Industry: Hospitality
  • Solution: Business Telephony

Camlux is the first hotel in Hong Kong's Kowloon Bay located the east of the Kowloon Peninsula and north of Hong Kong Island.

Built in a former factory, every corner of the hotel holds a hint of the building’s former glory, from the modern aesthetic of the 185 rooms to the streamlined, business oriented mindset that is applied to services.

Following two rounds of demonstrations, Camlux was convinced of solution’s simplicity as well as the benefits of having a single provider instead of three.

We built the Camlux Hotel in an old factory because we wanted to offer our guests something special. With the ALE solution proposed by 8 Telecom we deliver a guest experience that is as exceptional as our hotel.

Calvin HK Wong, General Manager, Camlux Hotel
