“Nice view, clean but not well located”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Hugh hotel with a nice view.Need to use a shuttle bus to get downtown (Kowloon) which run every 20 minutes and last 6. Metro although is close is not convenient as the line of the hotel is isolated from central ones ( the one to get the island or downtown) and need to do either multiple combinations or pay separate tickets (metro is expensive in Hong Kong) Taxi is cheap and cost 24 dollars (HK) to downtown. Breakfast its very good , staff is pleasant, rooms are clean, lobby is very crowded and noisy. If you are 1.85 cm hight the bed will result short. The view from even rooms are incredible good. The swimming pool its outdoor with great view and absolutely enjoyable. The wifi at the room is one of the most expensives Iv ever paid with the limitation that if you buy a day you only can connect 2 devices (if you travel with a smartphon and laptop your wife wont have wifi and need to pay separately!!!)

Room Tip: even rooms bay view

I stayed here for a week with my family. I had a seminar at HK Poly U which is 5 minutes away. The hotel is a bit out of the way, but the shuttle to downtown Kowloon makes it quite convenient. However, it is still not the same as a hotel where you can just walk in after seeing the sights, so the location is not that great. Where the room scores is in the size of the rooms, and the fact that you can get reasonable rates with breakfast and internet (for only upto 2 devices) included. We ended up paying around $270 a night for a suite which included breakfast for 3. The breakfast is very good and the outdoor pool was nice. Our room had no view - we were literally next to the pool. However, the rooms which face the water would have had a nice view - the view from the breakfast area was very nice. All in all, a pleasant value for money stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor with a view.

I stayed here for 5 nights while attending a conference. Overall the stay was excellent. Great location next to the station, a free shuttle into town , a great pool and excellent breakfasts with spectacular views. I was pleasantly surprised given that some of the reviews have been quite negative. The room was quite large given it was Hong Kong. I would stay here again

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views. Best view is from the breakfast terrace

I used this hotel for business. The check in was quick and efficient. The service is attentive and unobtrusive. There are probably cheaper hotels but this one fits the bill very nicely.
I would recommend the using the Harbour Club. There are fantastic views of the harbour while enjoying breakfast.

Stayed here a number of times on business and the hotel has always been a pleasant base for my time in HK. The hotel rooms are clean, albeit small (aren't they all in HK?!) but well appointed. Service is the usual high efficiency you'd expect.

Location is convenient for Hung Hom station for when I need to travel into the mainland, just a short walk out the back of the hotel. You can also quite comfortably walk down onto the waterfront in the direction of Bulldogs bar.

Breakfast is the usual mix of western and oriental buffet with a good choice of both and of high quality.

Club floor offers access to club lounge and bar with complimentary drinks during happy hour. The space isn't overly big but does offer some place quiet to work in the evening or to admire the HK city scape. You can often get a good deal on club floor access for just a few $ more which is great VFM so worth keeping an eye out for offers.

Remember Hong Kong hotels are expensive compared to other cities.

We took the option of an upgrade to Club Level for a small surcharge.

Well worth it in our opinion.

You check in on the 20th floor in the "Club" which has an amazing view of the harbour.

Our room had a slightly obstructed view of the harbour but was comfortable.

Included free breakfast in the club, snacks all day and complementary cocktails/beer/wine/drinks/snacks between 6-8pm. Only issue with the free drinks is the overuse by the "rowdy" ladies from Queensland who may have "enjoyed" the hospitality too much.

Staff have been great.

We will be back.

BEWARE. This hotels policy is to hold onto the booking in deposit of 2400.00hkd for at least 2 weeks before releasing back to your credit card. OUR experience was one we won't repeat.We had requested a harbour view room and wasn't initially given one. We asked to change rooms and after some haggling was given another room that was totally inferior to the previous one although it was facing the harbour. We had had a long flight and just wanted to sleep so we accepted this in a moment of weakness. The staff were very unfriendly and certainly unaccommodating to the point of being belligerent and surly. The most disappointing stay in a hotel that was supposed to have a good rating.. NOT IN OUR EYES
