“Near ideal for Nathan Road area”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Overall rating should be good but above average. We stayed a few nights here based on its close location to shops and reasonable (not cheap) price. Other hotels might be more expensive as TST is not known for budget hotels. The main negative is its steep climb to the hotel reception from the lower street level although we spotted an escalator about 100 yds away. A good entrance is via its car park at Knutsford Terrace at level B1 of lift to your room. Taxis may drop you off at its entrance. The buffet breakfast at HK$80 (at half price) was reasonable bearing in mind a good variety of food, including plain porridge, plain fried noodles, eggs, salad, bacon, steamed sausage, types of cereals, juices, pastries, toast etc. There are other restaurant options at Kimberley (Road?) which open at 7 am. The bedroom was a bit cramped with 3 beds, which were firm but comfortable with large, soft pillow. We have no problems with the check in staff. We were surprised by their complimentary fruits and chocolates. Our room had a fixed shower head, otherwise things were OK (adjustable, adequate air-con).

Room Tip: We picked a non smoking room at a non smoking level (12th).

We stopped in Hong Kong for 4 nights on the way back from Australia. The hotel was easily located, we took a taxi from Kowloon station for just a few Hong Kong dollars, around £5.00. Lovely reception, fresh fruit on arrival and complimentary water. The hotel is located just down from Knutsford Terrace, a busy cul-de-sac with bars and restaurants.
Room kept lovely and clean, with chocolates left ion our last night. Highly recommend the hotel, We really enjoyed the brekfast buffet too which was great value for money.

Based on the solid recommendations on Trip Advisor, and some great room rates on Agoda, I opted for Stanford Hillview for the conclusion of my holiday in Asia. I was looking forward to splashing out in 4 star style, unfortunately the standard is well below a 4 star, or even 3 star accommodation. For instance, I would think that it would be standard practice to have a bedside table on each side of the bed. Shampoo and conditioner would be nice too, especially after having the airline lose my luggage in transit. There was also a light on in the wardrobe that there was no way of turning off. Reception staff were attentive but not terribly friendly, and they were not efficient in helping me get my luggage back (every time there was a shift change I would have to tell them my luggage was being returned, and they would write it down, as if it were entirely news to them - then it miraculously 'arrived' ten minutes after I repeated this to someone on night duty on the second night - at 9 pm. I think it was probably there for a while longer but they didn't know whose it was).

The breakfast is quite good - a good range and good value if you get it included in your room package.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify non-smoking!

Thank you for visiting us. We were bitterly upset to learn that your stay with us was a bit beyond your expectation, in particular the comments about the lugguage issue was taken note.

Having looked into the case, we regret to say that by the time you approached the Receptionist checking about the status of the returned luggage which the logistics company just delivered it to the Concierge counter few minutes ago and note was being passed on and shared among all duty staff at the Front Desk. Yet, they were engaged with checking-in at the same time, hence, failing to get throught the message timely.

For the inconvenience which may cause you in this matter, please kindly accept our sincere apologies. We do appreciate your kind understanding and sincerely hope that you will allow us to serve you again on your next trip.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel.
Pros:
- Wifi quality
- Clean
- Helpful staff
- Price/quality ratio for HK
- Location
Cons:
- Small room (ok this HK , but yet really small)
- Breakfast could be improved (not bad though!).

So, overall a really good stay. I do recommend it.

Another late review. I stayed one night at the Stanford Hillview Hotel with my niece during our Hong Kong-Macau Tour. We booked the bus transfer from the airport which dropped off passengers in different hotels around Kowloon City, and we happened to be the last to leave the bus. Well, it was a perfect opportunity to see other hotels and their location. Although it was a rather long trip we just enjoyed that so called "Hotel Hopping Tour".

Yes, the hotel is located on a hill but I did not find this a problem as we did not find it that steep after all. I don't know with others having limited mobility but you can always get a taxi and ask the driver to drop you right in front of the hotel entrance.

The reception staff were friendly and efficient. After dropping our suitcase in the room we rushed to the ferry terminal to buy our ferry tickets to Macau for the following day. We did a walking tour to the malls and some tourist attractions until we realized that we are already close to the hotel.

Back to the hotel were happy to enjoy the comfort and luxury of our room. The beds were comfortable. We were staying in one of the rooms at the higher floor so we got a view of the city lights, and a peaceful sleep throught the night.

At check out time we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel reception but for a fee.

Over-all, we had a pleasant stay at the Stanford Hillview Hotel and will not hesitate to come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the higher floor to get a good view of the city.

I am amazed at the number of reviews that comment on the fact that this hotel is on a hill, so I will do the same! If you have a fear of hills, maybe you should not go to this hotel. Or if you luggage is on 4 wheels and you often forget this fact, then maybe you should not go to this hotel. Otherwise, it is a perfectly fine hotel in a very good location in the heart of Kowloon. It is walking distance from Kowloon Park, Victoria Harbor, Avenue of the Stars, and the Temple Street Market. It is only two blocks from the great science museum and the history museum. Our hotel room was a little bit small, but met our needs and provided a respite from the busy city. Everyone on staff who we interacted with was pleasant, helpful, and spoke great English.

Almost forgot: even if you are afraid of hills, your taxi can pull into the covered parking garage, where the concierge can help you with your luggage on flat ground.

Stayed in November 2013. .
Hotel is centrally located. Near the mtr and famous Nathan Road for shopping.
Dint eat at the restaurant so can't comment on that.
It's located on a steep hill and if you're walking to it use the service entrance. Much easier.

I think the hotel should have a person at the foot of the hill to help people with their bags.

The room was quit small but that's norm in HK.

Overall I'd stay here again and recommend to others
