“Nice but very noisy”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

The location of the hotel is good as mentioned before. We had paid for a harbour view room but got it in hotels north wing so it was not good nor what we expected. We could see harbour only by standing next to the window. We did try to change the room but they did not do it.

Our room was on ninth floor and it was very noisy. Street noise is bad on especially at night time untill wee hours. You can hear it even through earplugs. Walls are paper thin and so is the door which keeps no corridor noise outside. Plus there was continuous drilling and hammering at the hotel from early in the morning. Not the best place to relax... but good for shopping.

Our room was renewed and was clean by good and friendly housekeeping. However the room is very beige. Bed is firm and shower is good. Breakfast at the restaurant is okay.

We did not stay our whole holiday in this hotel.

We booked 2 premium harbor view family suites for our group of 7 (2 children 12 and under). We had the most beautiful view in this lovely hotel. The outside of the building looks like any plain high rise but the inside lobby is quite nice and the suites are wonderful. It is located right on Victoria Harbour. You get the most beautiful view from the harbor view suites. We had a nice bathroom, bedroom and living room with a sofa bed. Located right next to the Peninsula Hotel at a much lower price. So close to the MTR station, the Star Ferry and multiple shopping areas. We also walked to Kowloon Park and the Temple Street Market.

We took the airport express shuttle to the Kowloon Station, then you can take a free very nice air conditioned Mercedes Benz bus (K2 line) to right across the street from this hotel. Be sure to change some money in the airport so you can buy your Octopus card to take the train and buy a SIM card for your GSM phone. Octopus cards can also be used to pay for the Peak Tram, the MTR, even some food items at the 7 Eleven, etc. So useful!

Would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future. The location cannot be beat!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room so you can see the harbor. Pay up for the premium view; it is totally wor...

This is an amazing hotel in a great location! Don't let the YMCA title allow you to think that this is not a fantastic hotel! I personally love the harbour view rooms and they are extremely competitively priced. I believe this hotel is the best location, best value for money and has the most courteous staff that you could ever find in Hong Kong.

Room Tip: Choose a harbour view room or suite.

We don't do cities often in our travels, but wanted to experience Hong Kong and since it's one of the major cities in the world, wanted a first rate experience . The Salisbury offered just that. We booked a harbor view room on a high floor. Being just next to the famous Peninsula Hotel, we got a spectacular view of HK skyline. The rooms are modern, and not too basic, with coffee and tea facility and a TV.
The staff at the front desk and concierge were extremely helpful and efficient.
I will highly recommend a stay at this hotel. It offers very good value for money.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 13th floor with full harbor view, but partial harbor view will also suffice. The n...

The Salisbury YMCA is roomy, clean, affordable, and has great amenities. It has been a very comfortable place for me on long stays.

Of course, you can make use of the extensive athletic facilities, including a pool. Then there is the downstairs cafe that has just the right snack for the munchies. And a laundry room that charges pennies so you don't have to lug dirty clothes to a laundromat.

The location can't be beat. The famed Peninsula Hotel is next door, and the YMCA shares its view and location. You're on the edge of the craziness that is Tsim Sha Tsui. You're steps away from the Star Ferry to Hong Kong as well as the MTA.

An added benefit is that a lot of tours stop to pick up participants at the YMCA. So you're well-positioned for them as well.

The only possible drawback is that it is on the Kowloon peninsula, and may not be as convenient for late-night activities on Hong Kong island.

Room Tip: If you don't mind paying a little more, ask for at least the partial harbor view rooms.

We loved our stay here. Clean, comfortable rooms. Great location right near the water.

And the view! Magnificent! I wasn't expecting that much from a partial harbour view but, when I looked out the widow, I was blown away.

A very happy stay.
