For context, I have been traveling to/through Asia for more than 35 years and have a broad spectrum of "hotel experiences" (from yurts to the Ritz) to use for comparison. In this regard, the Royal Pacific is a solid if unremarkable hotel - nothing "bad" per se, but nothing to write home about either. Here are a few pros and cons:

Upsides:

1) absolutely convenient - just across from Kowloon Park on the western side of Tsim Sha Tsui and right on top of the China Ferry Terminal. If you're transiting to any place in the Pearl River Delta, this hotel is ideal. Additionally, it's a short walk across the pedestrian bridge through the park into Tsim Sha Tsui proper or you can work your way down to the ground floor and you're straight on to Canton Road - great from a tourist's perspective and shopping.

2) the breakfast buffet is substantial - wide variety of cuisines and the food is of generally good quality. You shouldn't go hungry here. Service is also generally quite attentive and pleasant.

3) tons of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood - nothing's more than a 3-5 minute walk from the Hotel.

4) reasonably easy to get to/from the Kowloon station for the Airport Express - otherwise a taxi from the airport will run between 165 and 200+ HKD.

Downsides:

1) if you stay in the Hotel Wing (vs. the Tower Wing) the rooms are fairly small and do not have desks so if you're on a business trip, plan on working off your lap on the bed as there's really no place to sit. Room has really minimal seating that's not terribly useful for anything other than putting your suitcase on it (which is good, because there really isn't any other place in the room to do so). Tower side rooms are larger - and a good bit more expensive.

1a) the bathrooms are comparably small as well - functional, but you're going to have to maneuver some in them. Shower's decent sized for us larger Westerners, but still not a ton of room to spare here.

1b) as noted, the Tower Wing rooms are generally quite a bit larger and much better appointed - a much better bet if you need room to work or don't want to feel quite so cramped.

2) front desk service can be inconsistent and a bit indifferent - a bit typical of many Hong Kong hotels these days: you get "processed" rather than "served". Nothing overwhelmingly negative here, but if you've ever checked into a hotel and felt genuinely welcomed ... well, don't expect that here. My check in was one of about 5 things the desk agent was doing at the same time and his attention to me was quite clearly the least important of the 5 five ... handed me my key and turned back to a conversation he was having with another desk agent.

3) like many hotels in Hong Kong these days, the aim is to separate as many mainland Chinese tourists from their wallets as humanly possible; given the proximity to the ferry terminal, there are a great many transients moving through the property on any given day. Be prepared for the periodic "Chinese crush" in elevators and such.

4) if you need to spend time over on Hong Kong Island, this is not a particularly convenient hotel - look for something in Central, Admiralty, Quarry Bay, or Wan Chai instead.

Again, there's nothing "bad" or "wrong" with this hotel - it's convenient, functional but understand it's utilitarian and has value primarily for it's location.

Room Tip: As noted above - if you need room to move and a desk to work on, you're going to want to spend the extra bucks on a Tower Side room.

We stayed a total of 3 nights and had stayed in 2 different rooms as we had to check out on the 2nd day and check in again once we are back from Macau.

The first night room which was located on Towers Wing (if i remember correctly) was pretty good. Rooms were big & spacious, clean and comes with bath tubs and part Harbour views (though not full harbour views due to room/window orientation)

For the second and third night, we were allocated on the Hotel Wing (if I remember correctly). Rooms are very much smaller; basically guests have literally no space to walk if they have their luggages opened up. Rooms are of modern design and was clean though. The rooms had views to the bridge to the adjacent Kowloon Park in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Both rooms comes with complimentary in-room wifi and 2 bottles of drinking water, and the hotel does not comes with a swimming pool.

Location of the hotel is excellent, as it is situated right on top of the China Ferry Terminal. Thus it is very convenient to access to China and Macau as you just have to take 2 floors down the escalators. For MTR, you can choose to walk through the Kowloon park to Nathan Road to access to Tsim Sha Tsui station, which takes approx 8-10 mins or by the other way to Austin station which take approx 5-8 mins.

Hotel's location at Canton Road is a heaven on earth for luxury shopping fans. Hotel is just situated very close to Harbour City, Heritage 1881 etc and you can walk to Peninsular Hotel, Avenue of Stars and Temple Street Night Market.

Overall, I have stayed in better hotels within same price range but I may consider to stay in Royal Pacific again if prices can be more competitive, taking into consideration of the very small rooms. The only thing which will keep me coming back will be the excellent location of the hotel.

The hotel is a little bit far from the hotel, around 250 HK dólar by taxi, service is good, there are a lot of shops around, and a park to run next to it, even an aviary, so far the best hotel I have stayed in Asia.

Room Tip: 20xx rooms are very quiet

Stayed in one of the newly renovated Tower Wing for 4 nights. Room was spacious, clean, and bathroom had a double vanity basin top. Very helpful! We slept very well for the 4 nights, and housekeeping/front desk/concierge staff were always smiling and accommodating. One of the best stays I had in HK. The GM did an awesome job in training the staff. Will be back!
