Cosmo Hotel Hong Kong
Ranked #139 of 721 Hotels in Hong Kong
Reviewed 5 November 2012

I just returned from a 2 day stay at the Cosmo Hotel in Hong Kong during a business trip. It's not a bad choice if you have work nearby. I was originally booked next door at the Cosmopolitan but was moved to their sister property, the Cosmo at check-in. I was able to add free in-room wifi internet (offered at the Cosmopolitan but a pricey extra at the Cosmo) and a free breakfast as part of the move. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.

The room itself was compact, like most HK hotels but nice. The beds are comfortable and compact and the entire space was about 12' x 15'. OK for one but this could be a stretch in trying to get travelers and luggage inside the space.

The restaurant at the Cosmopolitan next door is nice and was a good value for a business meeting planned for one evening. The breakfast bar at the Cosmo is OK and weighs more toward Asian breakfast foods than Western, except for the novel pancake making machine.

The only negative against this hotel isn't the hotel but the location. It's at a busy intersection near the race track that isn't a noise problem but is a bit isolated from nearby restaurants. You need to walk a bit to get yourself into any decent shopping or restaurant areas.

his was my first trip to Hong Kong and this hotel. The room had ample space but wardrobe did not allow trousers or dresses to hang properly. Room was serviced every day, which was unexpected, fresh bottles of water each day, toiletries replenished each day. Food was good, plenty to choose from and included in room price. Staff all very helpful. The hotel allowed us to store our bags and cases as got to the hotel at 9.30 am, but still let us check in a couple of hours early.
The free wifi in 5th floor lounge was great.
The only bad thing to say was the building works next door, not the hotels fault but had no warning about this, just a note in the room. the trains just a 10 minute walk away and to lots of fantastic shops and restuarants.

Room Tip: No fitness or leisure at this hotel but the sister hotel 2 doors away Cosmopolitan has leisure that...

We stayed here on our recent trip to Hong Kong and I have nothing but good things to add. It's about a 10 minute walk from the nearest subway, but also sits in a neighbourhood with a lot of good shopping and food nearby. The room was clean and well taken care of and the check in and check out processes were friendly and efficient. If I had one complaint I'd ask why you don't just put free wifi in the rooms. We did end up using the Breezes wifi lounge on the 5th floor (where we were) but when you're in HK, you want to do some research in the morning and at night on where to visit and it's nice to do it in the room.

We stayed at the Cosmo Hotel for four nights recently and had a great experience. While the Cosmo is a reasonably priced hotel, it is located next to the more upscale Cosmopolitan Hotel and the amenities of the latter were available to us. From there we were able to ride the free shuttle downtown to connect to the Big Bus tours which interested us. We also ate in the Cosmopolitan dining room which was excellent. The staff was very attentive. My wife was ill one day and the Manager, Mr Chan, was most helpful, giving me his card and informing me that I could call him at any time day or night. The desk clerk, Amy Lau, was wonderful. The hotel was clean, quiet well situated.

Room Tip: For those interested in horse racing, the track is very close by.

We arrived quite late and were met by a very helpful young man at the check-in desk who was keen to give us plenty of information.

We had the family suite (301) on the first floor. This was spacious with two separate rooms and a few nice touches such as roomy seating area with large TV as well as TV in each bedroom.

Fruit was replenished every day, another nice touch.

The room was also clean and well serviced every day.

The location was a little out of the way but the walk to Causeway Bay / Timnes Square was only around 10 minutes. We avoided using the shuttle bus, so can't comment on that. Instead we tended to use the fun little trams which were to be found a couple of minutes down the road. These run into the central area very frequently.

Breakfast was OK but a bit of a disappointment. There were some strange choices available on some days. Different forms of egg are available but don't expect to be asked what you would like by the rather abrupt staff. The choice does not compare to other hotels we have stayed at in Asia but certainly offered enough to fuel you up for the morning. Coffee was reasonable, via a machine.

The breakfast location was a rather tired and ugly bar area which could have done with a face-lift and a few more tables, there was often a few minutes wait to get in.

The 5th floor 'Breeze' area was pleasant, including free coffee / tea facilities. Despite this I do not think that residents shoudl have to go to this area or the lobby to access free wi-fi when paying this much for a room. I am sure that the manager is going to come on and say that it is free in rooms to those who book through the hotel website.....Mister, it should be free for all at your prices!

My main problem was the noise from the building work which is going on next door. It started at around 8am every morning and I am not exagerating when I state that you could not hear yourself think, let alone listen to the morning news on the TV. The whole room was vibrating as well. It's a good job that we spent the days oput of the hotel. The noise was also very noticable in the breakfast area. Not a nice alarm call....nobody warned us of this when we checked in. This was very disappointing!
I would seriously consider avoiding this hotel at present for this very reason. There appears to be a new hotel being built next door which is nowhere near completion, so I would expect this awful noise to continue for a good few months to come.

The elevators seemed to lack any logic in their programming and would tend to oscillate between the upper floors and then, apparently, stay on one floor for ages. Luckily we were only on the third floor so had to use the stairs a few times when we got tired of waiting. If you were on a higher floor or elderly / disalbled this could be an issue.



All in all a decent hotel at a reasonable (by Hong Kong standards) price. If you don't mind being a little off the "beaten track', and don't expect too much from breakfast, I would recommend it but not until the building work has stoppped!

Room Tip: Keep away from the lower floors and elevator side where the work is being done next door.

The hotel looks better in the picture. Actually the lobby is next to the breakfast place. I had an apartment, small but convenient. The draw back is a very poor internet connection, and a breakfast that changes everyday but not for the better. The best part of it, is the space on the fifth floor with wifi and coffee and fruits. People are nice but for the price I paid I would prefer to spend 50$ more and get a better place. It was quite expensive for what I got. I guess that since there was a show on maybe the price was so steep, I guess if i had paid $200 or less I would have considered it a better place. I agree with the fact that some personel was more efficient than others. But also thereis work going on next door of a new hotel I think and maybe it is did not contribute to quite night. Also the A/C is very noisy. The plus is that you can get to good restaurant or time square in less than 10 minutes walking. I cannot say i would not stay there, and I could not say I would recommend but a little improvement for the breakfast at all levels, wifi quality, and finally the noise of the A/C and it will gain in my books
