“Excellent, in everyway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

Me and my sister visited Hong Kong earlier in the year, and stayed for 4 days in this hotel.

Firstly, the location is fantastic, being on Nathan Road and the heart of Kowloon, and less than 5min walk away from Jordan MTR station, it made a perfect place for base to be a tourist around Hong Kong.

On arrival the staff in reception were very friendly, and did everything they could for you and really provided a warm and welcoming reception. We booked a twin room and it was fantastic. The hotel is modern and fresh, with rooms having a very stylish appearance and luxury feel. The room itself was large and spacious, and the same followed into the bathroom. The room also came with a free 'welcome basket' of light snacks and drinks, which was a very touch nice and helped for a quick feed after a long haul flight! The room service and cleaning was excellent, with a good clean through the day with fresh towels, sheets daily etc

Another amazing feature of this hotel is the terrace bar on the top floor with breath-taking panoramic views of Hong Kong. We spent many evenings sipping a refreshing beer, while watching the sun set over the city, and the lights of Hong Kong flicker slowly on as dusk approached. Really a fantastic way to end a day in Hong Kong.

Overall, would recommend this hotel to anyone! From the friendly staff, to the amazing location, to the fresh, clean and modern rooms, its a great hotel in a great city.

This is my second stay at the Madera in 5 months. What I love about it are the modern stylish design, reasonable rates (HK is not a cheap city), good sized rooms, Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries, jacuzzi tub in every room, complimentary mini-bar snacks and drinks - all of which make for a very pleasant stay.
I also love its location in Jordan - in a quiet side street conveniently located 3-5 mins' walk from the Jordan mtr station, shopping, loads of food places - Parkes street, temple street night market etc.
There are two things which could make the stay even better - one is that the pillows and bedding are really too soft. I had a rolled up towel under my pillow for better neck support. The other is that despite staying 5 nights, they do not provide any complimentary water beyond the first day. Still, the Madera has loads more pluses than in minuses in my book - so yes, I will definitely stay here again!

We picked this hotel as a friend had told us to stay in Kowloon at a boutique hotel and this one fit the bill at a good price.

The hotel was one block away from Jordan station in an area where there was a lot going on-Kowloon park, Temple St market, the waterfront etc all in easy walking distance.

The rooms were modern and the free first round of drinks in the mini bar was a nice touch. The shower was also very powerful and the bath tub had a jacuzzi feature which was nice.

A typhoon hit whilst we were in HK and the staff kept us regularly updated and even ordered take out for us from somewhere they knew would be open when all of the restaurants/shops boarded themselves up.

Would definitely return.

This is a nice boutique hotel in Kowloon.

The hotel is not easy to find as it on a small street off of Nathan Road. Nathan road is a major thoroughfare in Kowloon, but many of the cab drivers did not know Cheong Lok Street.

The more western hotel experience is in Central. However, if you want to see what life is like for the locals, stay here. I had to work for a week in HK and stayed here to get a local. If was very Chinese in the neighborhood. Easy to take the 1, 1A or 6 bus to the water. Get an Octopus card to get around local transit (including bus, subway, airport express).

The hotel staff was great and helpful. The hotel was comfortable but the rooms were small. The views were of an abandoned building across the street, but the lounge on the top of the hotel yielded some great views. Nice spot to grab a beer to unwind from a long day. There is also a coffee shop on the 3rd floor (not easy to find), but nice place to get a coffee and stretch out your legs. Nice gym and game room if you are so inclined.

In short, nice hotel with a friendly staff in a comfortable environment within a very Chinese community. Close to Kowloon Park, Jade Market and a short cab ride to the ICC (4th tallest building in the world). Also, easy to get to the water and to Central.

Stayed here for 4N in a room on the 19th floor. The view was nice - overlooking the other buildings and hotels nearby and had a partial view of the harbour. The room was clean, a bit small (which is normal for HK & Most asian city hotels) - had a slight wet carpet smell to it but not offensive and quiet. On arrival the mini bar is stocked with free drinks etc and you can fill them up with your own when they are gone. I like this approach as you don't have to empty the fridge of the hotels overpriced drinks to fill it with your own.

The rooftop balcony is excellent, you have about 300 degrees worth of view over the city., It is above the top floor bar, so 30 floors above the street. It is great to have a look at sunset or at night. Go to the rooftop and you will save yourself money as there is no real need to go to the skydeck near the water.

The Madera is 1 block away from Jordan Train station so if you catch the train and it is raining, you wont get too wet as there is only a small section not under cover. It is also only 1 block away from the markets and a million street food stalls/restaurants.

Location is excellent.

Overall the hotel is very good... HOWEVER......In our room, the toilet and bathroom (1 room) is separated by a frosted glass window only. At the top and bottom of the glass section isn't frosted (~30cm +/-) so when you sit down to do number ones (female) or number two's - you can be pretty much seen by anyone else in the room. I really didn;t like this. I don;t know why it is like this (cost - fashionable - to be different) but it made it a bit uncomfortable for us both when you went to the toilet. If I had of known this before I booked, I may not have booked this hotel. I say MAY not have booked but you should consider this when thinking about your stay. I didn't like the light 'buttons'. rather that switches they are buttons labelled and it got a little annoying trying to turn off a light but having to press them all to work out which was which. This really didn;t make much of a difference but it was something that annoyed me- hardly a deal breaker and probably wont affect anyone else.

The breakfast was average - you get a voucher for the cafe next door and you get a coffee, OJ, warmed bread basket with 2 x muffins, 2 x pce of bread, 2 x pastry and some fruit. nothing ace but enough to fill you up before you head out. Coffee was very good.

Overall the Madera Hotel is a very good hotel but the frosted glass separating the toilet and bedroom really let it down (for me/us). It may not bother anyone else traveling or if you travel by yourself, but just be mindful of this when booking a room.

Would I stay here again if I was in Hong Kong - most probably. I would just know about the frosted glass and bring/buy something to put up over the window to block the 'view'.

For value and location this hotel should be towards the top of your list of places to stay in Hong Kong (Kolwoon).

Stayed for 3 nights at the hotel, can say that the room was great, big and come at great price as compare to other hotel, Enjoyed my time with my gf, she too like the room alot, the downside might be the door for the toilet is faulty, the free breakfast wasnt really nice too, had to buy breakfast outside of the hotel. Overall it has a great location, very near to a mtr line. The staff will always helpful.

The Madera Hong Kong Hotel is a beautiful place. The room is large, clean and modern. The bathrooms well equipped and one if not the best showers i have come across in Asia, great water pressure. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The only two things we disliked were. We wanted to book another night to our stay, and to get the same room rate as the previous nights, we had to go through a hotel booking website, instead of just matching the rate and booking another room for us at the front desk, minor annoyance. The second thing is Breakfast at the Cafe, Little to no options and quite expensive. It is not really known for breakfast, so we can give it that much. But extremely expensive for toast, croissant and tea. All in all, it was a great stay and would recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 21st floor hypoallergenic room, not by our own choice, was given to us. It was wond...
