“Hong Kong Christmas 2012”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

Decided to travel from Japan to Hong Kong for Christmas; using search engine, this hotel figured prominately in the hits; also tried correlation of ones near Hong Kong disney. Four night stay; Positives--chose club floor room as it included buffet breakfast/free internet/free minibar condiments. View of the inlet was most awesome; room was decent size; clean; desk area complete with office supplies/box containing power adapter/lan cable/pwr strip. Plasma TV with a English-speaking movie channel/discovery chanel; fridge/kitchen sink/cabinets/in room combination safe; buffet breakfast--wide range of choices; felt empathy for the long egg cook--egg cooked to order--ONE at a time; while hotel does offer shuttles to two locations so one can get on mass transportation at those points, the times are fixed and line forms early for limited seating; we ended up taking taxis to/from the hotel. Not so positives---hotel is out from the locations of Hong Kong Island/Kowloon/location where Disney is. Depending on the driver (more than one category of taxis here--red being most expensive and most prevalent it seems) and the path he chooses--most we paid was about USD $25.00 from/to the hotel. Furtherest was Hong Kong Disney; Hotel has one restaurant of which we were unable to get reservations to and No standby seating possible. There is an outdoor quasi restaurant===too cold at this time of year. Due to location--would have to compare hotels on Hong Kong Island if I came here again;

Room Tip: Club level--only a few dollars more and the breakfast buffet/internet make up the difference. If 19t...

Well it was a pleasent stay for the amount of money we paid, the room is nice and clean. The only disadvantage is that the hotel is far from the metro station and you have to take their free shuttle bus to the station. so you have to be exact with your timings to be able to catch the bus. we usually returned late so we never caught the shuttle bus on our way back from the metro station so instead we took a green bus for a small fare which was convenient.

Selected this hotel because the ones next to the airport were much too expensive on this particular week. It may not have been as good a deal as I first thought because of the taxi fare! I had a nice, large room, with kitchenette and a great view of the harbor and bridge. Reception was crowded and noisy with tour groups but the staff did a very good job of getting me checked in while restraining others who were trying to interrupt the process.

Room Tip: Ask for sea-side if you want a good view of the bridge.

We had our first international trip and vacation as a family here and even though we arrived around 2am, they still accommodated us. However, if you want a run for your money, choose a hotel that has free shuttles, free breakfast and free wifi! It will save you a lot and make your vacations worthwhile!

Room Tip: Rooms from the 6th floor has a very nice view

Bad hotel. No seats in reception. Keep standing. Carry your own luggage to rooms. Very small rooms. Bad interior planning. Wastage of space..could have utilised for more spacious rooms. No wifi in room. Only in hotel lobby that to with heavy charges. Baddest hotel i've seen.

Nice hotel, situated not far from international airport, for who don’t need to visit the City and is looking to a quiet place to wait the Visa.
Nice hotel in fast land easily connected to airport.
I enjoy the gym and the swimming pool, as the SPA as well.

This property masks itself as a upscale luxury hotel. It costs too much to reach the hotel from the train station. Then when we arrived they had the check in area roped off like a movie theater.
The staff was not at all helpful with directions or travel information. The rooms are small(yes nice view if you get) with dirty, stained carpets, sheets felt like the detergent was not washed out, bed was very soft, no extra pillows, cable TV only 2 Western channels all else in Chinese. Bathroom is extremely small no well appointed for the money. Now the location, its across the Island there is absolutely Nothing close to this property so your at the mercy of their shuttle bus which fills up fast so you can spend lots of time never getting out of there. The last bus from the station is 10:45pm so do not miss it if you can find it...otherwise a 8 HD taxi ride. They have a very small roped off lounge which you pay a premium for to get wi-fi.....if you have no wi-fi expect to pay 40HD for one hour of a very slow internet connection! Rip Off!!!!!!!! There are so many other options....lesson learned.....hope this helps...it was really a bad property managed foolishly.......

Room Tip: There are much better options in HK..with better location, amenities and room
