“Breakfast Buffet for Everyone :)”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

we had a very nice stay at shamrock, the location is also good (near MTR, 711, watsons, etc). Staffs are nice and friendly. The breakfast is good for everyone, the food choice is not that wide, but it can accommodate any religion.

Got a really unforgettable experience in HK, I traveled with my family for a supposedly relaxing trip and ended up being stuck due to typhoon Usagi.

We booked in Shamrock during our 4 day/3 night stay and when our flight was cancelled, I opted to book in a cheaper bed and breakfast, turned out to be a wrong decision as we got lost finding it (roamed around the place for two hours under heavy rain and wind! and we got separated along the way, it took two hours to finally reunite, with them <my parents and son> back to the airport and exhausted, while me and my husband checked the hostel), when we finally saw the property, it was not worth it, I gave away the $800 I paid for the night and did not bother for a refund...we called Shamrock to book the night and they not only gave us a discount (from $1,650/night to $1,100/night, they also upgraded us to de luxe and to think there were a lot of people stranded and looking for a place to stay! They did not take advantage of the situation. After all the stress and worries of the storm and getting lost and separated in the heart of the city (and in such highly populated area!), we were again greeted by the warm welcome and homey atmosphere of the hotel...can't thank them enough, special mention to their staff named Lilian.

Very accessible also...From Airport, take bus A21, it will bring you straight to the hotel (you just have to cross the road), and from the hotel, you take A21 also (walk through your right upon exiting the hotel, in front of the police station is the bus stop), it will lead you to terminal 1 of the HK International airport, fare is HK$33 (as of Sep 2013).

There is a Mc Do nearby, we take our breakfasts there, and KFC in the building very close to the hotel, there are Mannings and 7-11 stores everywhere.

The hotel is also steps away from Jordan station.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were booked in 6th and 8th floors, both floors were highly maintained, clean and quiet.

For the price, not worth it. Staff were unpleasant, like they didn't want to be there, like I was annoying them by just talking to them. I get treated better at $10 a night hostels. Room, while clean, was cramped with no windows. They charge you for water. Worst breakfast buffet I've had. I don't know where the good reviews for this place are coming from to be honest. All in all, while not a 'hotel from hell' there are much better places to stay in the area.

Wat an area to stay !!!! You are in heart of TsimShaTusi.
Austin , Jordan , Temple street and Nathan Road just around your hotel. It is a great experience to stay in this hotel. Shopping you are right in the heart of the market. Nightlife is just around you.
The hotel is on the main road . Great place to stay and the breakfast too is very good. A good property to stay with family or if you go on a business trip.
Rooms are a little small but still comfortable.

I liked it, staff were attentive and nice, near the centre, some rooms don t have windows or have them just in the toilet. Small rooms, and very good location. Near parks, restaurants and places to visit.

Room Tip: ask for one with window

Im actually writing this review from the Shamrock Hotel. If you only care about a place to stay and dont expect any fancy amenities then this is the perfect hotel because its right in the heart of Mongkok.

PROS:

- excellent location (every nearby building has got a mall in it with several floors of stores and restaurants, much like the old department stores of New York City- you wont have a problem with shopping or finding a decent place to eat)

- all the major attractions of Mongkok are nearby (The Hong Kong Cultural Center with its museums and the parks are just a 10 minute walk away, the entrance to the HK subway is right outside the hotel so you wont have a problem getting anywhere, along the harbor with the ferries is down the street and you can go to the night markets after dark).

- decent rooms (the room is clean), aircon is strong and crisp

CONS:

- the rooms are pretty small, some dont have the street views rather their windows are just tinted out.

- WIFI internet is only free in the lobby area.

- The hot water is more like lukewarm, and the drain in my tub was working very slowly.

- its only a 3 star hotel so no major amenities like a gym or a swimming pool.

All in all Im glad I chose this hotel, I only use hotels for sleeping in and this one is right smack dab in the middle of everything. The classy Peninsula Hotel is down the street and costs three to five times more but if you can do without a gym, a pool and are willing to make a little sacrifice, then this hotel is adequate- you can take the money you saved and use it to buy more stuff; once youre exhausted just head back to this hotel and sleep it off, then start the whole thing over again.

Room Tip: - ask for a street view if you can so at least you can look out the window.

The hotel is at a premium location for shopping. When it comes to having Indian food near by there aren't any good restaurants. Apart from that the rooms are quite small. They were below my expectations. The beds etc are not very comfortable. The breakfast at the hotel is very good and is a value for money. This hotel is really nice for tourists as it is very cheap and comfortable. The best part is it is located at a place that is so close to shopping. The Hong Kong Bay area is just walking distance away. The Metro station is also walking distance away. There is no swimming pool etc. But apart from that it is quite okay.

Lobby at the hotel is astonishingly quite small. Internet is not free in the hotel. The charges for internet can be to the order of HK$100/day which is very expensive. They have a business center which charges HK$20 for 20 minutes of internet. This is something not so good in Hongkong.

Room Tip: If you are a shopaholic, this is the place to stay!!
