A receptionist told the Post that a guest under Snowden’s name had checked out on Monday, but could not reveal how long Snowden had stayed.
CNN also confirmed that a man with the name Snowden left the hotel on Monday.
In his interview with the Guardian, Snowden had described how there was a “CIA station just up the road – the consulate here in Hong Kong.” However, the Mira is in fact situated on the Kowloon side across the water from the U.S. Consulate which is on the main island.
It isn’t as if there aren’t much cheaper, and likely more anonymous, options available in Hong Kong, especially on the Kowloon side. If he wanted to, he could get lost in the crowds of Mongkok, which has the highest population density per square mile in the world.
