The Island Pacific is located in West HK Island. It's a bit off the beaten path (about HK27 taxi ride from Central stn). Our package included free transportation from the airport to the hotel although (usually there's a surcharge), we weren't aware of it til after we had arrived but they did give us free transport to the airport upon our departure.
The room is tiny (though typical for HK standards) but decently functional. We stayed two nights and it was fine - longer stays might be a littled cramped. Beds were hard as usual - seems to be that way throughout most of SE Asia as well. We had a good view of the water (and highway).
There is a pool and two small work out rooms - more cardio than anything and I believe the gym is 24hrs (not the pool). There was complimentary breakfast in our package and I thought it was pretty good. Internet was pricey (~HK120/day) and it wasn't free in the lobby or dining areas.
Taxi's are easy to flag down and there is a tram/streetcar a block away to take you to the subway stations if you need it (very cheap, <HK6, I think). While you're a bit westward, we did walk from the main bar district (Lan Kwai Fong) to our hotel (probably 20+ mins).
The price (~C$100/night) seemed reasonable given the location and the amenities. I've stayed in Kowloon (near Jordan stn) and Causway Bay on previous visits and this hotel ranks on the same level with the lower price balancing out the location (remember, taxis are cheap in HK so not a big deal, in my opinion).
Overall, good value considering where you're located. I would recommend this hotel but there are plenty of hotels to choose from in HK so I wouldn't suggest this to be a place you had to absolutely stay at but a good choice nonetheless.
