This hotel is great for business travelers. Breakfast at Feast is quick and delicious with buffet and a la carte options available, perfect to start the day. Sugar bar is funky with amazing views and also great bar food with big portions, and also a good selections of cocktails. The rooms are modern, clean, convenient (power points next to bed, power adapter in room, iron etc) and the beds are comfy. The shower has awesome pressure, so much so I didn't want to get out. There are also beautiful views from the floor to ceiling windows in the rooms. It is close to the harbour to go walking in the mornings.

Right next to a mall & the MRT, making it very convenient.. Located in a quiet area of HK but with lots of restaurants around..

Hotel staff are friendly & service is great. Rooms are comfy & black out curtains are great.. I definitely would recommend this hotel to others.

Music played in the common areas is hip & you can enjoy the hotel's music playlist in your room with the IPod provided.

Stayed: May 2014

I stayed here while attending a convention at the conference centre. The journey to the conference centre took about 30 minutes door to door. However, this includes 15 minutes walk from the train platform at Wan Chai (the nearest stop to the centre) to the centre itself which would have to be walked in any case if arriving by metro. The MTR journey itself is only 10 minutes and the hotel is right outside the entry to an MTR station on the same line. Therefore, if you are not wanting to stay in the thick of a conference, this is a good choice. The staff at the hotel were very attentive and it had good business and laundry services (eg you can print direct from your PC in your room and the printout is brought to your room promptly). Wifi was faultless and free. The room service meal I had was also good. Make sure you find the blackout blind switch in the room which I missed for a couple of nights. I was on the 14th floor and the room was very quiet.

They have a very good system of catering to the need of the guests which includes simple stuff like providing adopters in the room, remembering any extra request of the customer and providing some useful amenities like the ipod.

Room Tip: THe rooms in higher floor with a view of Kowloon is preferable

Modern, functional, clean and friendly. A decent breakfast in the restaurant and a great roof top garden. Whilst it's 10-15 mins from Central, the MRT is close by so no real issue.

I'd stay again when travelling back to HK for business.

We chose to stay at the East because it offers great value when compared with any of the 5* hotels in Central just a 15 min ride away on the MTR. Exit D1 at Tai Koo takes you straight into the hotel. With clean sleek modern lines, a great roof top bar, fab pool that never saw more than 3 other users when we were there we would recommend splashing out on a corner king room with harbour views though you would have to specify that you want a room above level 25 unless you want to play peek-a-boo with the occupants of neighboring apartments. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Corner King and as with any hotel anywhere in the world - High Floor away from the elevator unless...

Many thanks for posting a review and a very helpful hint for your fellow travelers on TripAdvisor. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for highlighting the value for the money that EAST offers, as well as all the amenities in the hotel. You're absolutely right when you advise future visitors to ask for a higher floor, as they offer the best view in both our urban and harbour view rooms.

We look forward to seeing you at EAST, Hong Kong again soon.

If you are on business visit and your office is in or around OIE or Tai Koo area, i dont think there will be a better choice than East Hotel.I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2014 on my business visit. My office was just 5 mins walk across the street. Hotel has everything in best of class for a business hotel n HK..Smooth check in, great views of the harbour, spacious rooms, at par facilities in the room.Cant think of guest missing anything here..Decent spread at their restaurant on 1st floor for breakfast and good party atmosphere on their signature Restobar called "Sugar" on top floor.One unique thing i liked here is you can control your service menu thru Ipod,..right from in room dining to check out..Its cool!!Connectivity to rest of HK is easy as hotel just outside Exit D on Tai Koo station on Island line which connects you to Central HK in 20 mins.Good choice of restaurants including Pizza Hut, Starbucks etc around with maximum being in the mall next door which is connected to hotel thru a small skywalk.Ask for rooms with bayview...If you are not in budget, great for family stay as well..Would stay again here on my next visit...

Room Tip: Ask for room with Bayview
