Just had 5 nights at the Royal Park Hotel, Shatin district, Hong Kong. Went from London to visit friends in H.K. whom we had not seen for 35 years.
Royal Park is a lovely Hotel in Shatin, away from the hustle and bustle of central Hong Kong and Kowloon. Surrounded by lush green mountains (but also still plenty of high rise apartments) and Shatin Central Park and the river running through it, this was a great choice for us. All the staff in the Hotel are so friendly, can't do enough for you. The ladies who run the Executive floor (16th) are magnificent and ultra helpful. Rooms are really well furnished and a generous size at 30 square metres. Bathroom was lovely and very modern - with a good size bath. Wifi is free throughout the hotel - and in the rooms, a real bonus. Hotel prices (rooms and food) are very reasonable for a Hotel of this calibre. Although rated 4 stars, I'd personally give it 4.5 stars. Will definitely stay again - as long as it doesn't take us 35 years to get back to Hong Kong next time! Another real bonus is the Hotel shuttle bus (free of charge) which zips up and down to Central Kowloon (Langham Hotel and Hong Kong China ferry) 10 times a day, what a fantastic service. We made use of it daily apart from our last day. Close by is the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, well worth a visit. If you want to get away from the faster pace of life down town, this is the place to stay - and the excellent free shuttle bus service, just 20 minutes or so to down town makes it absolutely worthwhile. Not to mention also that the Hotel is connected to the New Town shopping Mall (huge) where you can buy every kind of goods imaginable from food though to the latest designer clothes, jewelry and high tech gadgets. Not my cup of tea personally but knowing it is right on the doorstep of the Hotel will be a boon for many visitors. Lastly, transport to the airport is very easy whether you want the luxury of a taxi, the Hotel Concierge shuttle or the A41 public bus to/from the airport - which drops you off within 15 metres of the Hotel reception! Obviously, this Hotel is supremely well managed, hence the very high ratings from visitors - us included. Enjoy your stay, we certainly did.
