Since Ive been to Hong Kong before, I kind of had an idea about the location the Harbour Plaza was in. After arriving at the Airport, I took the Airport Express for $11.00 US to Kowloon Station and from there a taxi for about $ 6.00 US to the hotel. So convenient and hassle free. The hotel lobby is overwhelming because of the many people meeting as a center point, lounge and restaurant right there, and the check in/out concierge desk in the middle smashed together. The receptionist upgraded me to a balcony room with a private hot tub. I was ecstatic ( but never used it ). There were 6 elevators so I never had to wait at any time to get to my floor. The hallways are pretty dark but it gives a nice Asian flair as you walk through. A lot of reviews suggests that the room is small, Ive seen smaller so it was actually just right. What would made the room perfect was having an iron and iron board. I searched all over but couldnt find it. If the tv was a flat screen tv, it would be icing on the cake. It was a standard tv but it served its purpose as a lot of tv channels could be viewed.
The mall next door has everything you need for a short stay. The grocery store and 7-11 is on the bottom and there is a Food Court . I saw a lot of Japanese, Thai, chinese, and ramen/noodles stalls to choose from. No one has forks, everyone has chopsticks so for all of us not use to it, bring your own in case.
When you walk out the back lobby, to the right is Hong Hom Staion, and to the left is the Sports Arena. When you walk pass the Sports Arena, take the stairway and walk to your left and it will take you to the waters edge where you can stroll down to Shim tsa sui. It was an easy 10-12 minute walk. Took me directly to the main spots. I felt safe at all times. There are also other pedestrians walking back and forth from the other hotels in the vicinity.
Overall, if the price is good, I will definitely stay here again.
