“Clean and quiet Hong Kong option”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The Bishop Lei was a pleasant place to stay on my one night in Hong Kong. I am not very experienced with the city, but I understand the price was a good value. The location of the hotel was a little bit off the beaten path, so it was quiet and more residential feeling. The rooms were teeny tiny, especially for two American sized people (my husband is 6'3'') but everything worked and it was clean. Amazingly for a big city hotel, the wifi was free! The location was excellent for the mid-levels, Victoria Peak and the Zoo/Botanical Gardens. It was very easy to get a taxi to the IFC for transportation options although close enough that we could walk home (with help of escalators) after a night on the harbor. Since it's affiliated with the Catholic Church, we ran into trouble by staying there on Good Friday since the shuttle service (to IFC) wasn't operating. We were puzzled when they told it was a holiday - I've never had that problem with a hotel before, but we assumed it was because of the church connection.

Reviewed 20 April 2012

I stayed here in April 2012. VERY clean, nice staff, really nice rooms. All-in-all, vewry satisfactory. Couple thoughts:

1- It is the only hotel in the "mid-levels". Find the Hong Kong "escalators" and you can walk downtown in no time.

2- A lot of taxi drivers don't know where this hotel is so get the hotel staff to write it on a piece of paper (in Chinese) and show that to the taxi driver each time you get into a cab.

3- They don't have an in-home restaurant (or I didn't see one) so I used to hit up the escalators late at night for food.

A little pricy so I could only afford 2 nights here. Email with any questions.

Thanks!
R.

Very average sums up the Bishop Lei nicely. The staff aren't overly helpful or friendly but they are ok. The breakfast buffet isn't amazing and is charged extra and the rooms themselves are very average. They have pretty standard views and lower rooms are subject to a fair amount of traffic noise from the popular road that passes the front of the hotel. The "Standard Queen Room" is actually two very hard single beds pushed together. This leaves a slight bump in the middle of the bed.

There isn't room to store a suitcase open, so I kept having to repack it when I wanted anything, the room was either too hot or too cold as the air-conditioning wasn't very good and it was switched off in the day as the hotel turned off the power when I wasn't using the room?!

On the plus side the shower was good and the hotel's location meant the business and tourist areas were only a short and steep walk away!

10% service charge seems to be a catchphrase in Hong Kong! If you receive good or bad service, it's payable on everything from a beer in a bar to rooms and breakfast in hotels.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic noise.

A small room, but then again so is every room in Hong Kong, but well equipped and more comfortable than expected. Stayed in a single room on 22nd floor at back of hotel facing Victoria Peak. Would not recommend that any one take this size of room with the double bed option as it would impossible to move around.
Hotel located not far from the top of the mid level escalators so quite convenient for all the bars and restaurants on the mid level strip and the Star Ferry at the bottom.
