I arrived via taxi from thr airport and quickly realised it would have been better to take the airport train to hongkong station and then take a taxi to the hotel. Check-in was slowish with 2 lines forming. It's deceptive as a giant pillar is in between the 2 lines and you can't tell which line is shorter or moving faster unless you know this place very well and check it out first before deciding on the line. I got a low floor on the 15th (hotel has 40 floors) with no harbor view. What a pity for the hotel. And it's ironical I'm staying in a hotel with Harbor view in the name and i don't get the view. The room is normal in size and thankfully has the flat screen tv and shower which I prefer. The tv however has a bad remote that takes 10 clicks to get anything going, even turning on or off the tv. The phone is not friendly for the business traveler as there's no speakerphone option and you have to hold it for your hour long teleconferences. They don't have international newspapers too, and they ask you to purchase from the gift shop, hmm. The hotel also has no good eating options. The Chinese and Italian restaurants here are not ranked high on tripadvisor so I stayed away. The in-room dining service and food quality was ok - the traditional local beef noodles were good and the chicken rice not so good. I've been to hongkong 10 times but first time staying in wanchai. Will try the new Indigo hotel in wanchai next time
