“Unsuitable for Business travellers but handy location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2011

Stayed there for 4 days recently and wasn't impressed with the hotel at all.

Negatives :
1. Slowest possible internet speed in the room and no business centre. For business travellers this is unacceptable
2. Size of the TV was like a stamp, when other hotels are putting up bigger and better TV;s it was surprising to see the miniature TV at the Harbourview that too with limited number of channels.
3. Limited choice of breakfast and everyday the menu was more or less the same with no variations
4. The room was way too small in size compared to major hotels in HK.
5. Even the Taxi does not stop right in front of hotel, rather towards the side.

Positives
1. The restaurant Manager was always smiling
2. Very handy location

Overall this was more like a 2 star hotel from any standards.

We had two rooms at this hotel and stayed here over Christmas period whilst visiting family in Hong Kong. The hotel rooms are perfectly good, clean and well furnished. The beds were fine but a little hard for European tastes. They were able to provide us with foam matress toppers which did the trick. After that no problem. The staff were all friendly and helpful and it was easy to get a cab from outside the hotel. Cabs are cheap here so it is great to use them to get about. The location was good for us as we wanted to be in the Wanchai area as it is very convenient for Central district and The Peak for visiting friends and relatives. It is also very good for getting over to Kowloon via the ferry. The locality is good for small local restaurants and so on. We did not have room service but enjoyed a great breakfast every day as part of our rate. I would recommend this hotel if you want a reasonably priced place in a reasonable location. It is clean, comfortable, and rooms well furnished.

As it was my first trip to Hongkong, I had difficulties to choose the right hotel.
Based upon some TRIPADVISOR review, and info from various sources, I have chosen HARBOURVIEW Hotel on Wan Chai district - and I was right to make this decision.

The hotel is not a ***** hotel (you may choose Marriot, or others, in case of having money for that).
The location (next to the Convention Center, close to METRO Station and also to the Ferry) is simply the best - unless you have an other location you must prefer.
In case you take the bus 12A from airport, and get out at the stop " Immigration Tower" -
you can reach the hotel by foot in 2-3 minutes.

You can discover the ISLAND of Hongkong by foot, or by metro, and bus.
You can cross and come to KOWLOON in just minutes by a ferry (from Convention Center).

The service of the staffs is friendly (particularly the service of the more experienced staffs (try tocontact Mr. Muk, the super Concierge with Golden -Key award, or Natalie from the account dept.)

I have chosen a habourview room (recommend you to do same -for a small extra price).
The room looked to be recently refurbished, phantastic view, and good comfort for a *** hotel.
No breakfest is included -but this you can always have in their restaurant, or in any places nearby (Hongkong seems to have 10.000 places to eat..)

Once again: Harbourview Hotel is an excellent choice

Had 3 nights in hong kong with a wedding to attend and to do as much sight seeing as possible and found the harbourview a great location with great service! Had a fab view from room over victoria harbour, MTR easy to reach and so was star ferry! Was surprised about the size of the room as most reviews of Hotels in hong kong say how small the rooms tend to be but we were really pleased with the space!

Taking 12A airport shuttle bus could get to this hotel very conveniently, the bus stop is just 1 minutes walk away. When you go back to airport, try 11A at the opposite side of the street. In addition, both Wan Chai and Admiralty subway stations are in 5 minutes walk. You can also choose to cross the bay by boat, the pier is in 5 minutes walk, too. There's dedicate travel info service at the lobby of this hotel, so everything is so convenient.

Choose this hotel if you want to be within walking distance of most of Hong Kong island and are happy to do without luxuries. There is nothing wrong about this place but it is also no dream come true.

Fantastic budget priced hotel with sweeping view across Victoria Harbour. We were on 14 Floor and whilst not huge, the rooms are very comfy and nicely decorated. No real noise problems (other than when the SuperStar Cruise ships arrived and blast their horn to turn into their terminal opposite, which was quite nice to see and almost daily arrivals!). Beds quite firm but OK, staff very courteous, location right near plenty of bustling nightlife, a wide variety of restaurants and MTR Wanchai a 5 minute walk over footbridges or Wanchai star ferry to TST 5 minutes along street. No free internet in hotel but most bars nearby have free wifi so no big deal to wander over and have a bloody mary for breakky whilst checking daily emails, or a margarita in the afternoon.
