The Excelsior, Hong Kong
Ranked #75 of 729 Hotels in Hong Kong
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The hotel was exactly what I wanted from my short stay in Hong Kong - a room on the upper floors of a tall building with views across the bay to Kowloon. The view is awesome.

The hotel is a little worn, but not surprising, as it was very busy, and I guess it's like that almost all the time. The room, again, was a little lived in and perhaps a little old fashioned. Perhaps it could use a little sprucing up, but if I'd have wanted to pay for 5 star I'd have stayed somewhere else. The hotel was very good value and ticked all my boxes.

It's on the water, and at the heart of the Wan Chai shopping district.

If you want a fancy hotel experience and a huge room, you probably want to stay somewhere else, but if you want awesome views, a fantastic rooftop terrace bar/restaurant, easy access to transport, shops and bars, this will be fantastic.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a Kowloon view.

The Excelsior isn't the most luxurious hotel in HK, but the rooms are pretty and clean, breakfast is excellent and the staff is very helpful and polite. Besides, the executive lounge serves an excellent buffet all day long.

They also have a business center providing urgent support.

Very good deal.

We stopped for 2 nights from Australia to Uk. Hotel and room very modern and clean, reception helpful as we upgraded to executive package for breakfast and evening snacks and drinks it also included wi if for internet. Hotel in great position for sightseeing and shopping, we were on 31st floor so had great views of bay, the only downside was external building work on new tunnel overall a fabulous stay

Rooms are large and clean with great views, especially from the high floors. Room service is good and so is the bar on floor 33 I think, marvellous views at night. The whole place is expensive, in the basement is and english bar where it vost me 18 quid for a breakfast and 33 quid for a sunday lunch. However it is a great experience, lots to see and lots of old men with beautiful girlfriends.

If youre flying through hong kong and are after a nice place to stay on a business trip or launch pad to see the rest of Hong Kong. The excelsior might just be the ticket. Rooms are smart and tidy and the view isnt spectacular (looks out onto a construction site) but still the service was great and definitely did the job for us.

I was staying at the Excelsior right after a knee surgery. I showed up at check-in walking on crutches. Teresa at the front desk found me an handicapped-friendly room with security bars in the washroom and a low bed. It made a big difference. She was very quick getting what I exactly needed and was very client-focused and professional.
