The hotel is located immediately on the harbour, and offers beautiful views on Tsim Sha Tsui. When I was looking for a hotel in HK firstly I looked for the Tsim Sha Tsui area but, being that I was going to leave on December 30th, most of the hotels on rhe harbour in that area seemed to be already booked or too expensive. Once arrived there, I discovered that the New Remaissance has a very good position because is far from the crowd of Tsim Sha Tsui but very well connected with it through the ferry which is just beside the hotel (it takes 10 minutes to cross the harbour and it is a pleasant way to move); it is also very well connected with the rest of the town because the Wan Chai MTR station (the subway) is just a 5 minutes walking distance. You can choose to use the covered passages which pass over the roads or walk in the area, which is really not as bad as I thought! Everything considered, if you'd like to visit the town it is probably better to stay on this part of the harbour because many attractions are on this side and you can also take a ferry from central (just 2 MTR stops away from Wan chai) to go to Macao or to the other Hong Kong islands.
The rooms of the hotels are very good (do not expect very large rooms because every room in HK is quite small, but that considered at the Renaissace you have quite space). I would recommend to spend a little more and ask for an harbour view room, it's great to see the harbour from the ceiling-to-floor window!
The room style is essential but provides everything you need, and everything is new and clean.
Finally, at the Café renaissance you will enjoy a huge and delicious buffet for breakfast (really huge!).
