“Stunning”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Stayed there with a friend for 1 night when on way to Australia. We had paid for a standard room with a harbour view but were upgraded on arrival to a suite. The room was large with a separate living room area. Free minibar etc was fully stocked (more than just water). The view from the room was amazing - overlooking the harbour. The hotel stores bags for you when you check out and you are permitted to use the shower facilities and the bar/pool once you have checked out until you fly again. Location was very central (although we took a taxi everywhere as it was rather humid outside).

Room Tip: Higher the better.

I have travelled extensively but I have to admit this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.I was absolutely delighted from the moment we arrived at the foyer. It is a surprise package.
The room was impeccably clean and finished to the highest of standards. And yes, if you didn't already know the mini bar is free and they are quick to inform you of that. It is well stocked with premium brands. It provides the traveller with all the up to date modern gadgets to conduct business. Even a mobile phone in your room for your usage loaded with helpful information which you can take out of the room and use for your stay...free!!!!
Front of house staff were friendly and engaging. Actually, all the staff were amazing, courteous and willing to help. The service was prompt and efficient. I don't normally write reviews but this hotel was exceptional and deserves to be experienced by those travelling to Hong Kong.

We just had the pleasure to stay four nights in this Hotel. The room size was large. The bathroom amazing it even had a tv at the end of the bath. The views from our window of the city and harbour were breathtaking. We got breakfast included and well worth the extra money as you name it and it was on the table. Plenty of good shopping around the area with a short 10-15 minute walk to the trains. Will stay again for sure.

Great location, very modern comfortable rooms with all the little extras you could possibly want including a Nespresso coffee maker with various pods, overwhelming choice at the breakfast buffet, courtesy mini bus to central locations, fantastic lounge room, with showers and refreshments for use once you have checked out and have to wait for transfers, top notch restaurant on the highest floor, free use of a smart phone to use when out and about that acts as a tour guide as well as allowing you to make international calls, and then top this all off with a free mini bar, with alcohol, soft drinks, posh water and snacks, which is topped up daily...just what more could you want from a hotel. Who ever owns the Icon Hotel needs to start creating others around the world, as this concept is truly first class.

Room Tip: A harbour view room is wonderful, but the city view is fine too.

The hotel is owned and run by the nearby HK Polytechnic University, and probably for that reason it has a much more informal and young feeling. Staff all looked casual but overall attentive.

It's not comparable to the most established Peninsula, Mandarin, and other international high-end hotels, but then again it's also much cheaper. That said, the hotel doesn't compromise much in terms of room, service, and location when compared to them.

The room we had was spacious and clean, with modern decor. The rate was very good considering the size, the location and this is HK. Free minibar came with soft drinks. Bathroom was spacious but the oval-shaped shower stand without no door didn't keep shower water from wetting the floor.

Location might be a slight problem for some: it's in Hung Hom with easy access to taxi and MTR. Tsim Sha Tsui is a bit of walk from the hotel, so if you really need to be living in Tsim Sha Tsui/Central/Admiralty this may not be perfect.

Overall a very fine hotel at a very good price. It's almost an economical version of the Upper House. Will recommend.
