“Not Central but easily accessible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2010

This hotel was booked as part of a package in conjunction with Cathay Pacific air tickets to New Zealand, initially I was worried that it was a bit out on a limb but these worries were unfounded.

Situated on Hong Kong Island the Hotel is situated close to the exit of the West Harbour tunnel and the excellent road system makes access easy from the airport. There is a pre-bookable Airport Shuttle bus but if travelling with a small party (4 or 5) it will be almost as cheap to hire one of the small limousines that operate to/from the airport, the price for 4 of us was 750HK$ (£62) for the 30 minute transfer which equates very well with UK Taxi prices.

The hotel itself is a small tower block (32 floors) situated at the West end of Connaught Road, with the entrance off a typically chinese narrow street, nut once inside the entrance foyer was spacious and clean, reception detail was easy but we had a complication when we found that instead of 2 twin bedded rooms, we had 2 rooms with King Size beds, this could have caused problems but was quickly rectified, rooms 1 - 6 on each floor look out over Victoria Harbour and provide a constant ever chanhing view, however, if looking for a harbour view then any floor above 9 would provide the best option.

Our package came with an inclusive breakfast and the 2nd floor restaurant was found to be spacious with attentive staff, the buffet style breakfast providing an excellent array of cuisine from Fresh Fruit and breads, bacon, ham, eggs through to the traditional chinese fare.

Although there was little information readily available to the naked eye, the concierge service was excellent providing a booking service for tours, dining, transport and a ready supply of bottled water upon request.

As already stated the hotel is at the west end of connaught road, and once you have your bearings the local transport system is simple and effective with frequent buses and trams linking with Central and the famous Star ferries to Kowloon and at a flat fare price of $2HK (16p) for a tram ride over any distance one must ask why in the UK we pay £3.00+ to travel just one stop, we have it wrong somewhere.

Lastly if visiting HK don't forget to purchase an Octopus travel card, the cost is $150 but this includes a refundable deposit of $50 giving $100 of travel, this covers you for Buses, ferries, trams, metro, the Victoria Peak tram (watch out for queues) it can also be used to purchase drinks and provisions at the local convenience stores - a real bargain 3 days travelling only cost us $42 (£3.50).

Hotel was clean and rooms were small for Hong Kong standards but modern and comfortable. Had an issue with room and staff was accomodating and quickly resolved.

If budget is primary concern this is a reasonable option, but for me half the joy in visiting Hong Kong is being in nice hotel in the heart of the city, not an updated Courtyard in a drab part of town. For an extra $50 or so I would say there are better options and whatever cost savings I had was partially erased by the increased taxi fees.

Not a bad choice for tourists on a tight budget but I would avoid if staying on business as there are better options for not alot more.

Checked in at midnight.

Informed by Reception no room with twin beds available.
Amazingly, Reception also insisted that no extra beds were available as well.

Room amenities adequate and clean. Room seemed somewhat cramped.
Hotel just about worth a value for money rating based on price.

Travellers should be aware that the hotel is some distance from an MTR station and the lack of general amenities in the vicinity (a couple of convenience stores but anything more is a 15 min walk away).

I stayed at Courtyard Marriott on a business trip for 3 nights with colleagues. The biggest advantage for this hotel is the location, not far from the Central station where the airport train drops you and quite close to the central business district. The Courtyard is nothing extravagant (not supposed to be either) but has all the makings of a decent business hotel and is quite conveniently located. The rooms are decent with all that a business traveller needs but a tad small though. The bathrooms are quite like a box but again sufficient.

We used the restaurant a couple of times, with the service being quite quick & food decently priced; also it had a decent option od vegetarian options to the relief of quite a few of us. Also visited the gym one, however diffcult to call if one since it just has a few cadio equipments thrown in, so dont expect a full fledged gym.

Service is quite decent with the front desk being quite helpful & quick, however the real issue was the elevators; the hotel had just two elevators making the waiting time during peak office hours unjustifiably long.

I was at the Courtyyard for 4 nights and it is a good hotel. And compared with other hotels in Central that were charging $400+ per night for a room the Courtyard is a reasonable price.

I also requested to be in an executive room, which, for about $50 allows you to have lounge access, free drinks, internet, happy hour, etc. included. I found it to be worth it. It was always nice to retreat to the hotel during afternoon and have access to a cold drink and snack. The lounge breakfast was also very good.

The view from our room was also great. We were on the 31st floor and looked out to Kowloon.

There are some frustrations with this hotel though.

First, the location is a bit out of the way from Central. You have to take the tramway to Water Street, which is about a 15 minute ride. The trams, by the way, are frustratingly crowded.

Second, the lounge included only 15 minutes of internet per room, which is a joke. Honestly, this is one policy that the hotel should be ashamed of. Their internet rates were high and in this day and age that is not acceptable.

Lastly, the lounge staff really hovered. I know they were trying to be helpful, but it just felt like they were overstaffed.

perfect hotel far away from everywhere

We stayed in the Courtyard for three nights and found it a faboulous hotel. The disadvntage is that it s far away from everywhere. If you are in Hong Kong for a few days you dont want t commute in the city too much that s why i d say it s better to stay at the interconti , marriott or pennisula etc

is it about a 35 minute walk or 10 minutes in a taxi (HK$30) or 15 minutes on a tram (HK$2).

The staff were very polite and helpful, far more than in any Eu and US hotels.

The hotel does have a small fitness centre fully equipped but no pool.

The breakfast in the business lounge is very average and not too nice comparing with other asian hotels

I have stayed at many Marriott Courtyard Hotels in North America, and they were nothing but mediocre high-priced motels.

Marriott Courtyard Hong Kong is in a different league all together. Super friendly and helpful staff, very nicely decorated rooms, clean comfortable beds, fantastic view, convenient location.. and the list goes on... not to mention I only paid 70$ USD a night for this hotel on priceline.com!

Good Job!
