Paid just under £100 per night (inc local taxes but ex breakfast - bakery and Maxim's by University Station provided much better value for that) for a KIng Harbour Room which, unsurprisingly, had a huge bed and great views over Tolo Harbour. Lush carpets and large, marbled bathroom with both walk-in shower (big enough for 2) and a bath from which you could see the harbour view through a glass wall. Although the location is out of town, the excellent HK public transport system makes it worthwhile staying at this hotel but do your homework on how the MTR works before you arrive and your experience would be all the better for that. Not advisable to rely on taxis to get to and from the hotel as it is a bit out of the way. University Station on the East Rail overground line is right next door to the hotel (University = The Chinese University of HK). The trains are very quiet so there is no issue with noise. The hotel runs a shuttle bus into Kowloon downtown about 4 times a day. Handy, but probably not frequent enough for some people. Only disappointment about the room was the lack of an armchair. Also, Internet access is very expensive. I was quoted nearly £50 for a week's access!!!!! So in the end I had to make do with paying £7 for an hour's access so that I could check into my flight online. The food was pretty okay but naturally, a bit overpriced comparing to eating out locally (say, take 2 stops on the train to Shatin). Immediately surroundings are very nice with lots of trees and free space i.e. not so built up like downtown. It is possible to take a long walk along the harbour. Shatin racecourse is nearby if you fancy a flutter on the gee gee!

Stayed here for 2 nights with a trip to Shenzhen in between. Checked in at about 2 pm for the first night but was told room was not ready. Decided to walk to the University metro station and had lunch at Maxim's, a local fast food chain selling local specialties, including dim sum. (This was where i settled my breakfast over the next few days due to the variety of food here and the rate i paid did not include breakfast.) Asked the concierge again an hour later and was given a suite with harbour view, probably due to Platinum status. Went to Shenzhen for 1 night and on return, was given a normal room this time round. Both rooms were what one would expect in a Hyatt room or suite, so absolutely no complaints.

As for location, the hotel is away from the main shopping places like Kowloon and Tsim Sha Tsui, it takes about 40 minutes from University station where the hotel is to get to downtown. On the other hand, it is closed to Shenzhen border and offers a good option for any traveller who wants to get to Shenzhen for a day trip.

This hotel is a little way out of Hong Kong proper, but the MTR is next door makes downtown Hong Kong only a 20 minute ride away. The staff made the distance worthwhile. We were given first class service in every aspect of our stay. The hotel and the rooms were beautiful and very well equiped.

Just be sure if you have just arrived in Hong Kong, to have Hong Kong money to pay for the cab.

We were checked in here for 6 days and 5 nights. My girlfriend came a day earlier (Tuesday) and was shocked when it took her more than 1 hour to get to the hotel from the airport. I told her to take the A41 bus going to Sha Tin's New Town Plaza bus terminal and then take the train ride on the way to Lo Wu's direction and take off at the University station. At first she was furious with the hassle that she went through considering that he luggage was quite big, she even called me up and told me don't be surprsied if it will take me more than 1 hour to reach the hotel. She also told me it's on a different side of Hong Kong compared to Kowloon, TST or Central for that matter. But that's the thing, i chose this hotel for a difrerent experience, away from the city's usual noise and crowded streets, a good place where you can relax, unwind and just chill. And from the photos, I knew this was a perfect place to spend some quality time with my girlfriend.

I came in early Wednesday. By 12 noon I was already in the hotel. Man, I have to say, I'm impressed with thye location, the moment i reached the hotel's vicinity, right there I knew this was a "steal" and I felt we made the right choice when we booked this hotel in the first place.

Hotel Lobby - Perfect
Reception People - Perfect
Location - Perfect as well! (it's 2-3 mins walk from the University Station MTR)
Room - Excellent! (set up was great and the room is quite big)

I know if you're new to Hong Kong like it's your first time to visit and when you see some of the reviews about this hotel, you might worry a little but I guarantee you this hotel is "off the hook". It's really not that far and it's actually convenient since it's right beside an MTR station, so basically from the hotel you can go anywhere in Hong Kong from this point. There's also a "Huge" mall (New Town Plaza) near the hotel (2 MTR stations away only). And the mall is good too. Overall, This hotel is almost PERFECT in my book, the only downside w/c is not really a big deal is the internet. It's not free.

Some tips that might help:
- From the airport, don't take a cab, the price is not worth it, take the bus A41 which will drop you off at Sha Tin's New Town Plaza ($21 HKD) And take the escalator going inside the mall and then go to the MTR station connected to the mall (Sha Tin Station) then pay $4 HKD for a ticket and take the train going to Lo Wu, 2 stops only, Fo Tan and University where the hotel is located, so it's that easy.

- No food stalls, just some small eateries and 711. But the mall is near so it's cool, you can take the MTR and its fast so no worries, they also have restos there like 3 or 4 i think, and they serve good food too. It's Hyatt so you'll never go wrong and quality is at it's BEST. We had a breakfast buffet for $457 HKD for 2 and it's worth it.

- From hotel to New Town Plaza, Sha Tin Mall, if you will take a cab, it wil cost you around $60 - $70 HKD.

I'll post some pics later.

We had a blast staying in Hyatt Sha Tin, very romantic place indeed. 5 stars and 2-Thumbs up for this hotel.

It was excellent!

I was upgraded to Harbour View despite only made booking for the mountain view. The room was extremely big for HK standards. It was spotless, clean and comfortable. The view from my bedroom window was jaw dropping. The toilet was posh and the bed was comfy. The extra large plasma TV and the comfortable reclining sofa was made for a prince. The hotel ambience was beautifully decorated and classy. I felt so pampered throughout my stay. The room service and receptionist was polite and they address me by my name. The swimming pool was posh and the water was crystal clean.

2 thumbs up for Hyatt Regency despite its faraway location from the city but its not a big concern for me since the University MTR is practically 2min walk away. The lush greens and quite nature of the surroundings make this hotel an ideal get-away for couples and those who needed a peaceful, cozy and less stressful moment.
