Stayed here February 2014 for a week with my boyfriend. We are both students from the UK but I've been studying in China since Septmeber so he came to see me. I loooooove Hong Kong especially due to being in China for so long now - HK has just the right amount of western influence!

Which leads to the hotel - I've stayed in Causeway Bay before (in a slightly better location for shopping!) however that was a hostel so something has to give if you want a nice hotel! However Harbour View was perfectly fine I could still totter back in my heels from romantic meals! Also the bus stop, to and from the airport was 5 mins walk. Metro wasn't as close in comparison but was not far and of course the metro leads to everything and is SO cheap!

The price was great! We are students after all so the price was v. important but was fine! However I would say due to the ultra modern reception area we were expecting modern decor in the bedroom, plus the bathroom was ultra small!! My boyfriend being 6ft3" had difficulty as the shower/bath was on the tiiiny side for him! Although the actual bedroom size was absolutley fine! PLUS I would definitely suggest paying extra for a sea view. I wanted one then opted out as it was not a necessity, but next time necessity or not I will def get a room at the front of the building as our view was non existent being at the back!

Staff were soo polite, especially on our last day our bags could be left until whatever time so we could grab some lunch etc. The room was tidied perfectly everyday but remember to take down the "Do not disturb sign" as it won't get cleaned for the rest of the day (silly us)!

All in all a fab stay x

Dear Madam,

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback on TripAdvisor.com. We are glad to know that you and your boyfriend had a comfortable stay with us and you are satisfied with the hotel’s location, transportation network, the room price, the design and décor of the lobby, the room cleaning service as well as the service delivered by our Front Office staff members. We will keep up our good work definitely.

Limited by the location, some of our guestrooms do face the wall of the next building unavoidably and we also admit that our hotel’s bathroom might be smaller than other hotels’ bathrooms. However, we have been trying our best to offset the above weaknesses with our strengths like prime location and reasonable price.

On the other hand, it’s also a fact that over half of our guestrooms face the Victoria Harbour. You are strongly recommended to stay in a room with a view during your next visit to enjoy an even better accommodation experience. For details of our room categories, you are welcomed to visit our hotel’s official website or contact our Reservation Department.

Besides, we are aware that our beds are too short for your boyfriend. Actually we can arrange extension of the beds for up to 1 feet (12 inches) by putting a bed end board at the bed end. You are advised to request for a bed end board by dropping an e-mail to: reservation@theharbourview.com.hk prior to arrival or upon checking in so that our Housekeeping department can arrange accordingly.

Thank you again for your positive words and we look forward to welcoming you again upon your next visit to Hong Kong.

Exactly a year ago (end April 2013) I stayed in The Harbourview and my overall rating of the hotel was rather disappointing!
However, it's amazing what a difference a year can make - a metamorphous of epic proportions!
Not only is the hotel still a great location in relation to the Convention Centre and the night life of Wanchai, but, in addition, it has now also an extremely service orientated hotel.
From the moment we were dropped off by our taxi until the moment we were once again picked up by our taxi for our departure, Mr Terence Lam and his team (from the doorman to the night manager) were all very hospitable hosts.
Our room was more than adequate and the amenities were great. It seems that the renovations at the hotel have been completed - at least I didn't see any - and this made access to the elevators and our room a whole lot easier.
The Harbourview is now in a class of its own - might not be in the 5 star league but it is definitely great value for money. We have already made the decision to stay at The Harbourview once again next year.
Thank you to ALL the staff at the hotel - you made our stay a lot more pleasurable than the experience we had at the same time last year.

Stayed here for four nights on business and could not have been happier, the service was great, the staff were excellent (especially Mike at reception) and the food was amazing. The views of the harbour are fantastic and the location is very central. Easy walk into the city centre for buses, trains and great shopping!

The rooms, while a little small are very well maintained and modern with great free WiFi and very good hotel facilities while being very affordable.

I highly recommend this hotel for business stays.

We stayed there 4 nights...the service is very good and the zone is Pretty convenient. The HK trade center is very near. The rooms are clean, the beds are very comfortable and the view from our room was Awesome. The only thing that really has to improve is the breakfast menu, it is small and not so delicious...
Anyway I will return next time I visit HK.

This was the first time for me to stay in this hotel in Hong Kong. Although the location is very good in order to work in the exhibition center, I think that the rooms are quite small and very loudy. The service and cleaning was ok. Everything clean. No complaints either about the help at the reception desk.

Wasnt till my uncle picked me up after my last nite of stay that i found out it use to be a YMCA. It had the feel of being cheap. Bathroom was far to small and im a petite person, rooms were too small.
Extremely noisy hotel paper thin walls , had the worst nights sleep here.
You needed to go over steps and a bridge to get to Wanchai shops and restaurants. No Harbour vew whatsover.
Only friendly people were the concierge.
Was listed as 4 Star my books 2 Star, wouldnt recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from Lift and preferably with a view

Dear Madam,

Thank you for writing us a piece of comment on TripAdvisor.com. Offering delightful accommodation experience to guests is always the main concern of the hotel and we are regretful that we fell below your expectations in a few aspects.

Our guestrooms size is around 200 square feet. This is an average room size comparing with other hotels nearby. Furthermore, we provide adequate in-room amenities and facilities for travellers needs. We believe that our guestrooms can cater for both business and leisure travellers. Your comment on the view from the guestroom is also well noted. Please note that over half of our rooms do face the Victor Harbour and we have various room categories for guests to choose from, namely, Executive Room and Executive Deluxe Room, which are significantly larger than the regular rooms and face the stunning harbour view, you may consider choosing one of them during your next stay with us to have a better accommodation experience. For details, you are welcomed to visit our hotel’s official website or contact our Reservation Department.

Regarding the noise issue, please accept our sincere apology. Guests are strongly advised to contact our Front Desk staff any time if they need any assistance during the stay. Our staff would offer assistance and room change could be arranged if the situation allows. Besides, we appreciate if you can send us an email to: reservation@theharbourview.com.hk to let us know your full name and period of stay, so that we can mark your preference, away from the lift in your guest profile.

Since our hotel is located in the middle of Wanchai and Admiralty, it might take you 10 to 15 minutes’ walk from the hotel across the main road to reach the nearby shopping malls, restaurants and bars. For any enquiry related to sightseeing or dining out in Hong Kong, you are welcomed to contact our Concierge desk at the hotel lobby, our staff members are more than willing to offer you help.

Once again, thank you for your opinions and we are happy to know that you are satisfied with the service delivered by our Concierge staff. Please be assured that we will continue improving our facilities and we sincerely wish that you could give us a second chance during your next visit to Hong Kong.
