The Kowloon Hotel
Ranked #134 of 723 Hotels in Hong Kong
Reviewed 30 July 2012

Stayed for 4 nights in july 2012. Perfect location, in the middle of shopping and restaurants. Also only 2 min walk to Star Ferry, which takes you to Hong Kong Island.

On the opposite side of the road to luxury hotell Peninsula, but i can see no reason to throw away extra money on Peninsula, Kowloon Hotell is high quality, with clean and nice rooms. Only thing that separates the rating from maximum score is the lack of a swimmingpool, if this is important to you.

We are a family of 5, so we booked 2 rooms with interconnecting doors, brilliant:-)

The Kowloon hotel is a great choice for those who looking for clean room, good service and great location

The room is so small compare to other hotel in the same area. However, it's clean and comfort. The size of bathroom is quite big and comfortable with bathtub. Room equipped with fridge, desk, cable tv, bathrobe, slipper and safe. Bathroom has hairdryer and bathroom kit.
Internet is not free which is the only flaw.

Service is good and fast even though it full of guests. Bellboys are eagerly help you call taxi or deposit bag.

Location is the best thing about this hotel
Close to all shopping area and public transport. Subway station is in front of hotel. Airport express shuttle also stop in front of hotel. Bus stop is two minutes walk. Taxi can easily find. Ferry terminal is 5-10 mins walk.

Harbour city is 5 mins walk.
Royal pacific outlet is 10 mins walk.
Sweet dynasty restaurant also 5 mins walk

All in all it's good hotel

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in July. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to an executive suite on the 17th floor - very lucky. Although we were upgraded this room was still fairly small, but the bathroom size was excellent. The room was very well appointed and spotlessly clean. We had been travelling for 9 weeks so had a fair amount of luggage - what cases we werent using we stored under the bed. Housekeeping was very good -turn-down at night. Staff were friendly. Reception was always busy, but there were not long delays owing to the number of staff. Reception was helpful with the printing of boarding passes. Breakfast was very good, but the bacon was a bit over-cooked and chewy. Very handy location to shopping, ferry and hop-on, hop-off bus. Very grateful for the up-grade otherwise not good value for money

Very nice location, right above the metro station. A lot shopping area around. I think this matters. Room is very small, about 10sqm. Good for business traveller, not the family. But it is very clean and quite. Staff is helpful.

Stayed here with my 2kids for nights. Lobby doesnt have enough place for guests to seat! Room was too small also the bathroom! My 2 luggages in medium size made the room more tight!! Cant complain about the location though.. Mtr is just a few steps from the hotel also shopping to nathan road was really accessible. No swimming pool! You need to buy a ticket for you to be able to use the pool from ymca hotel across the kowloon hotel!! Will stay at ymca instead on our next trip to hk!

The hotel is situated atop the MTR station to provide convenience to guests, you may travel to all part of Hong Kong by this medium.
For family stay, you may choose the suite which allows you to have more space.
We have reviewed and passed your opinion on the swimming pool to the department concerned, and we would like to seek for further improvement on our facilities.
It is our honor if we could be of service to you on your next visit. Looking forward to welcoming you again!

We used to stay in this hotel when we stopped by Hong Kong, for it's really very convenient and reasonable. To my surprise, the mattress here was even more comfortable then those in other 5-star hotels in Hong Kong, though the room is tiny. But after the redecoration, the new mattress is harder than the old one. It's such a pity, for the best feature of this hotel disappears. Still this hotel is a nice choice with its excellent location.

My husband and I recently stayed in The Kowloon Hotel at Tsim Sha Tsui, and went out each day to explore, doing day trips etc. The hotel is ideally situated for the MTR directly below you, and 5 minute walk to Star Ferry. We have buffet breakfast each morning and it is great.

Room Tip: Best to ask for 2 single beds, as double beds not too big
