“Nice and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We were absolutely satisfied with the Kowloon Hotel.
The location is good with only a few minutes walk to the star ferry (the first choice to get on the other side of the city, e.g. to visit soho, the escalator and so on, for just a few pennies).
By the way, I would recommend having a hotel on the kowloon side as the skyline (on the other side of the river) is illuminated and the light show taking place every evening is a nice thing to look at when you return from city-sightseeing on the other side.

The hotel is not the most beautiful place I have ever been to but it is nice and clean and provides everything you need. Breakfast variety is outstanding, providing everything from Asian to Western breakfast. When it comes to hotels, I am quite picky and a bad hotel could easily ruin the whole stay. Hence, saying the Kowloon was not the most beautiful place means that of course you could have some more lovingly arranged details in the rooms and so on. But it is nice, clean and welcoming nevertheless and the rooms go way far beyond the quick-and-dirty kind of places of some business hotels. For a city trip to Hongkonk, the Kowloon will surely stays on my list.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We picked this hotel for a 3 night stop over in Jan 2012 on the way to Australia. We decided to upgrade our room from the standard room our travel agents had booked to a harbour view room. In the hotel details it will say partial view of the harbour and that is what we got. The room is slightly bigger than the standard room and for 3 days we found it adequate for our needs but could have done with more hanging space for clothes. The buffet breakfast had enough choice to satisfy most visitors. The location was ideal close to Nathen Road and the MRT Station and a 5 minute walk to the Star Ferry. The Hop on - Hop off tour bus can be caught near to Starbucks just along from the Avenue of Stars and well worth the money. Overall I would stay in this hotel again

Room Tip: Choose a mid level floor corner room with a partial harbour view

Reasonably priced Busy Hotel.Nice big room clean and comfortable.
Pleasant and helpfull staff.
Excellent Breakfast with plenty of choice.
Only one problem the Wardobe or as I thought was a Broom cupboard, had no space for any clothes.
But then if you are just on a short stopover as we were, you live out of your case..

The location of this hotel is great, it is very close to the MRT which is the most important thing to consider when going to Hong Kong. Customer service wasn't the greatest.. but that was a familiar pattern in Hong Kong. The rooms are also small, but i didn't find it a problem like other reviews have.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same, try and get one away from the elevators.

Couldn't be better situated for exploring hong kong, in the heart of TST, on top of MRT station,quick walk to Star ferry etc.....rooms small( we just about managed in a twin with extra bed with 2adults & 2 small children but practically no floor space) did have a partial view of harbour,safe,mini bar,bath with shower and ice machine in corridor outside.....breakfast was free for the children with 2paying adults and a quite awesome selection of hot, cold, Eastern and Western dishes

Overall this is a decent enough 4 star hotel with small rooms (but most in HK are) which given it's location is actually very good value for money
