“Great location for Shopping”
Reviewed 29 July 2007

A very busy hotel with good size rooms. We are a family of four with two children aged 9 & 11. We chose one room with two double beds as this was a two night stopover to break our London - Sydney flight with a shopping blitz. Upon check in we were offered a plethora of added fee upgrades of which we choose one at $200 HK per night that offered the children dine free and a 30% discount in all hotel restaurants. This payed for itself and some since we had dinner at the hotel buffet both nights. Best way to describe the hote is - We were comfortable. Our room appeared to be recently renovated and was immaculately clean. Bathroom very small. The hotel pool on the roof provided a nice setting. The staff were very friendly and all spoke english. The room maid was over zelous and couldn't wait to clean our room each day, it was a bit annoying knowing he was waiting. The complimentary water bottles in our room was a nice touch and when housekeeping relised there was four of us they replenished the water and cosmetics very promptly. our room rate included a late 6pm checkout at no charge which was very handy. Our son had an incident in the hotel buffet were he accidently broke a glass coke bottle with a glass fragment cutting his cheek slightly. The restaurant manager was extremely attentative calling first aid and a duty manager immediately whom promptly attended. They escorted him with my wife to our room were they attended to him very attentively. Upon checkout the next evenning the same duty manager in a very busy lobby left what she was doing to see if all was ok, which it was and paid particular attention to our son. I thought this was very impressive and personal of her for such a minor incident. Ideal location and hotel for a Hong Kong shopping spree. Exceptional value for money. Was recommended to me by both a friend and travel agent whom both stayed there. I have already recommended it to others.

Booked online for executive club room. 2 double beds.
2 adults 2 kids - 10 and 12 years old

18th floor - views really of neighbouring buildings. one side very close to neighbouring building so we got other side facing moody road.
good value exec rooms as breakfast included and cocktails and nibblies 6-8pm also included in executive lounge. we liked the executive lounge and it had two PCs with broadband to check things etc. Staff were very nice and helpfull. Very courteous.

Kids 12 and under stay and eat for free. good value because of this.
position on nathan road is in the thick of it really and chungking house has good currency exchange places make sure you look at them all not just the first few as rates get better further back you go.
yes there are hawkers infront of the building but they are all along this section of nathan road. Just ignore them keep walking etc - look up at the signs etc and they will leave you alone.
we had to catch taxis to mongkok markets as we found the MTR good but a but hectic for the kids. Taxi to mongkok was only 30 HK dollars ie 4 to 5 dollars AU/NZ/US etc - a bottle of water is between 6 and 15 hk dollars so taxis are reasonable.
Hotel had very nice roof top pool and BIG TIP here is to get up to pool before 8pm each nite for the fireworks as the building next door has one of the rooftop firework stations andswim or not at the same time its really lovely and beats going down to the star ferry area every nite to see the bigger show on hong kong island. try it at least once!.
Also the hotel has like a huge state of the art exercise area ( air conditioned of course) with all the machines plus shower area, sauna etc. Nicely laid out too.
Hotel has a small arcade downstairs where you can get a haircut etc.
Taxis can be caught from the lobby and the handler there will instruct the taxi drive where to take you. Taxi from there to the airport was 300 HK dollars including tip.

We were recommended this hotel and it was definitely as described, it is central, 5 star and great service. We decided to upgrade to Executive level as it was the same price when we booked direct with the hotel compared with the normal room via the travel agent. You got so many extra's eg. drinks and nibblies at night, I was drinking Chivas Regal every night, also coffee and bikkies anytime during the day, also a great breakfast all inclusive. So we definitely got our moneys worth, oh also you were always on the 17th or 18th level and checked in there too. The hotel is really central and you can walk to the Star Ferry, walk to Temple St Markets, also Ladies Markets and also an easy 35mins on a train to Shenszen, China (the only place to go shopping, it was the best and cheapest anywhere). Loved the place and would definitely go back there. Just beware of all the touting as soon as you walk out the hotel door but it is everywhere. Also if you can avoid June please do as it was so hot in June but there was always so many shops with air conditioning to go into, so you just put up with it.

I travel almost constantly across Asia, and the Holiday Inn Golden Mile is one of my favourite hotels. and perhaps the best Holiday Inn anywhere in Asia (except perhaps for the new, funky Holiday Inn at Ploenchit Rd in Bangkok).
The Holiday Inn Golden Mile offers very good value for money. Service is always very quick, competent and friendly. Where do they recruit all these young, smart people? I have stayed here many times and never had a bad or annoying experience. This is one well-oiled hospitality machine. Rooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable. And the location is excellent. I even like the views of run down apartment and office buildings, they give an authentic flavour of Hong Kong life. Through the windows one can observe people hanging laundry and old men in white undershirts doing their morning exercise. It is like catching a glimpse inside a Wong Kar-wei movie. Hotel has a nice rooftop pool.
Touts, hookers & their pimps and fake Rolex salesmen on Nathan Rd are tiresome but it is easy to ignore them. Just steps away is the iconic Chungkin Mansions, the atmospheric (or delightfully sleazy) hostel complex & shopping centre.
The bar on the mezzanine floor of the Holiday Inn can be a bit wild late at night, but is surely an interesting experience. Food in the restaurants is ok but nothing special. Better (and cheaper) to go outside the hotel for most meals and for evening entertainment.

We stayed at this hotel on our return journey from Taiwan. There is a free shuttle bus service (K3) to/from Kowloon Aiport Express station which will save you the taxi fare, however the taxi fare from Kowllon Airport Express station will only be about 60 HK dollars max which is about four quid (@ May 2007 prices).

Check in was flawless and the staff very friendly and attentative. Our bags were delivered to our room (on the 15th floor) within two minutes.

The room view was poor overllooking a high rise building opposite. The actual room itself was excellent, with everything you would expect from a Holiday Inn hotel. There were several restaurants, a pool, a good equiped fitness room etc.
We did not eat in the hotel as there are an abundance of places to eat on the door step.

The only down side to our stay was the amount of hawkers outside of the hotel. This is no reflection on the hotel or the staff itself, but at the time of our visit we wished that the Hong Kong authorities would do something about the hawkers on this area of Nathan Road who constantly badger you to buy shirts, suits, real fake rolex watches etc. The best way to deal with hawkers we found was by totally ignoring them (i.e. do not acknowledge their existence).

The hotel is located on Nathan Road where there is an abundance of pubs and places to eat from 24 hour opening McDonalds to 24 hour opening Noodle bars.
The Irish bars within minutes walk; Murphys & Delaneys both serve excellent food.

Overall our experience ot hotel was excellent.

Booked two rooms at the Exeuctive Club floor for four nights. We found the rooms extremely spacious for HK standard - imagine a King bed, a two-seater couch, coffee table and still ample space for my toddler to run around! This was a welcome change from our last visit where we stayed at the highly rated hotel at Mongkok area. Also, rooms were well-lit.

For the Executive Floor, we paid extra HKD360 per room/night to enjoy its priviledges - complimentary b/f and evening cockktail at its Lounge; use of internet at the lounge; late check-out at 4pm; DVD rental, etc. Every evening, we would head to the Lounge and relaxed for a cup of brewed coffee and cookies - a good way to chill-out after a day of sightseeing.

In terms of accessibility, one could not ask for more. Complimentary Airport Express shuttle plies between Kowloon station every 12 minutes; Exit G of TST MTR station is right in front of the hotel; Star Ferry terminal and Harbour City shopping centre are within walking distance.

In terms of F&B options, we only tried the chinese restaurant - food was so-so but prices are steep. I would recommend the one at the Cultural centre which is not far away. Good cantonese food at reasonable prices - plus good harbour view.

As for the flip side, indeed the hotel is situated among many rundown buildings so the view from the windows are not exciting. But having said that, I reckon that most would find such from other hotels as well, unless one stays at the pricy ones along Salisbury Road. Afterall this is part of the everchanging HK cityscape - newer developments surrounded by older buildings. For those who are affected, one could request for a room facing Mody Road and nearer to the Nathan Road end.

As for the touts, yes there were many promoting restaurants and massage services. Again, you would find others elsewhere along Nathan Road. Fortunately those we met were not very persistent - perhaps they were less inclined towards Asians.

All in all, it was an excellent stay and i am sure we would head back to Golden Mile when we ever visit HK again for its rooms and convenience.

Having seen previous reviews we opted to upgrade - the extra was only HK$200=£13 a night - and we couldn't find fault with the room, hotel or service. The Austrian restaurant was great value, especially the buffet - and again excellent service.
