“Better than TOP Notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

From our greeting at the door, to the reception team to the f&b team, to the concierge and his team - WOW.

Then came our room - WOW. Very modern, very comfortable and the shower.

Location was splendid too - a 5 minute walk to the train, which gets you everywhere in HK quickly and efficiently, to a 10 minute walk to the harbour front, to a 15 minute shuttle bus provide to the hotel to downtown Tsim Sha Tsui. With airport connections from Icon's door.

However the staff - especially the f&b team, the friendliest most professional we have encountered anywhere. They are all a credit to the Hotel ICON.

Given the opportunity we will be back.

Room Tip: Higher rooms provide better views.

I stayed here for three nights. I really think it's the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and modern. The restaurants are too notch. I really can't say one negative thing about the place. No reason to spend more money at one of the more expensive places cause this one had them all beat.

I don't normally write reviews. Unfortunately often even my favourite hotels (eg. Banyan Tree, LHW, SLH etc) manage to mess up something on the nth visit, which then annoyingly taints the experience. However, this is my 4th visit to Hotel ICON, and so far everything has remained absolutely perfect - hence I felt compelled to write a review.

Icon is definitely my favourite hotel in Hong Kong. Modern architecture & design, spacious rooms, excellent & friendly service, very enjoyable Above & Beyond club, great restaurants, good location - can't really find anything wrong with it!

Special treat on this trip was their latest innovation: free smartphone for use during your stay in Hong Kong, with unlimited data, and unlimited local & international calls. What a great idea - I must have saved a night's stay on roaming charges alone. Can't wait for this to become part of the standard offering in all good hotels!

This is the first time that I have used trip advisor to find and book a hotel. I took my husband on a surprise trip to Hong Kong for his 60th Birthday. Well we weren't disappointed. The hotel was fantastic. The room was great - I booked a City View and we actually had a city and harbour view which was wonderful. The service was excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly always asking how our day was and making suggestions on what to do. In fact Hong Kong itself is amazing and the people are very welcoming of tourists. The free satellite phone was also very handy.
I asked that a card be put in our room for my husband's birthday and there was a perfect cake and plate of fruit - very special. Thanks to the hotel management for arranging this.
We will definitely stay there again if we are fortunate enough to return!

Room Tip: They are all nice!

My husband and I spent the first night of our honeymoon in Hotel ICON during our stop-over in Hong Kong en route to Australia. We arrived at the hotel just after 8am and our room was ready for us. We got a complimentary upgrade to a Harbour View room and a lovely bottle of red wine from the staff. Our room was beautiful. So modern and the view from the window was amazing. The hotel is in a great location. Very easy to get to and from the airport and also handy for seeing the sights of Hong Kong. Our flight to Sydney wasn't until midnight the day we checked out, but staff happily took our cases for the day, and there was a lovely lounge, with soft drinks and tea and coffee making facilities, showers, toilets, etc., for us to freshen up in before heading to the airport. Will definitely stay here again if (when!) we return to Hong Kong.
