“great location, clean, comfortable but tired decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We loved staying here for the location - very close to lots of interesting sights, transport links, cafes and shops. The staff were fairly helpful at check in, and while our room comfortable, it was a bit tired and shabby. It was also not very big but that isn't suprising given the city it is in. Great free bus shuttle to and from the airport which was really helpful (given that we only had a one night stay in Hong Kong).

Room Tip: It was our honeymoon and there was a possible upgrade offered when we made our booking but no such u...

Travelled with my mum and auntie to hong kong, was glad that we chose this hotel due to the close proximity to the mtr.

the location is very accessible to all the shopping stretches and food.

the customer service is also highly commendable with a free upgrade of room upon arrival ( we did not even requested, the staff just offered it to us).

Though room was small, it Is definitely very decent for Hong Kong Standard. Would recommend anyone to stay there. =)

the hotel's main entrace is just on the oppositie side of the road to the Yau Ma Tei exit. Very convenient for rainy days and provides shuttle service to airport express station. Saves you from lugging the heavy luggage up the stairs of the MTR stations.

Room Tip: Ask for a non- smoking room

Booked 2 executive rooms and was very satisfied with the size and it's cleanliness. Room is big enough for our luggages and as we were traveling as a family, we were nested in adjacent rooms with connecting doors as they happen to be available. We greatly appreciated it and had an enjoyable experience! I will definitely recommend this to my friends and i will be back for sure! =)

I am glad to back back to Cityview Hotel, Hong Kong.

It was as good as my 1st visit. The staff are friendly, both check in and check out are pretty fast.

I had early check in upon my arrival and again a free room upgrade. So remember to request for express check in and early check in upon your booking.

The location is good, MTR station is just less than 5 mins away. On the way to the MTR, you can have local breakfast before your ride.

I am most willing to be back again and recommend Cityview Hotel, Hong Kong to my friends and anyone who is looking for hotel in Hong Kong

I chose this hotel mainly due to its proximity to the MTR station which made traveling around Hong Kong so convenient. Check in was quick and efficient and we were in our room in a little over 5 mins of arriving. The rooms were clean and modern and were of a decent size by Hong Kong standards. The beds were very comfortable too. The bathroom was not very big, but it had a separated glass enclosed shower area.

For the price we paid, this hotel was definitely value for money. I would not hesitate to stay here again on my next visit.

Upon check in, I was given a non-smoking room that has a heavy smoke smell. I immediately called the front desk for a change of room. When the manager came, he actually asked if I am fine with a room freshener/spray. Thinking that I will be here for 5 nights, I pushed further for a change of room. Eventually I got a clean smelling room but I thought the room keeper should have air the room properly before the next guest arrived.
The room is not cramped compared to some other hotels nearby. Though the bathroom was bit cramped but everything was laid out neatly with the small space.
The location was good given that the mrt entrance is round the corner. It was just beside In's Point, a place filled with Lego shops. It is walking distance to Temple Street where we can easily find nice cheap food.
I will definitely be back if I have budget constraints. If not, there's always other better choices.
