Flatfoot in Hong Kong - Bud Spencer (1975) - Hyatt Regency, Tsim Sha Tsui

With Nancy's demise and a little boy in their care, the guys head back to their hotel, which appears to be the old Hyatt Regency (formerly The President Hotel) on the corner of Peking and Nathan.

This is the famous hotel that had a vehicular ramp running up the side of Lock Road. The hotel was demolished in 2006 and replaced by iSquare (aka "eye sore").

  2. Hi Jesus - the thing was demolished in 2006, the same year I arrived in HK and also at almost exactly the same time that the Tung Ying Building further up the road was torn down. Sad, they were both nice buildings and much better than the crap that has replaced them.

  3. My first time in HK was in 1998 & I used to travel twice a year since then till 2009 & I am not sure about the ramp. I even remember passing by the entrance of Hyatt, I remember there was a DeliFrance there, but I think the ramp was already gone. I am not sure now!.
