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.

I've stayed in the Bishop Lei four times for 8 nights at a go and I'd be happy to return. I've always had a Harbour View room - the view is breath-taking, but a travel partner had the smaller room (Robinson Rd side, City View maybe), which was tiny even by HK standards. Free wifi. Breakfast is buffet and reasonable - if you've got time there are plenty of tastier, cheaper eating alternatives a short walk away in Soho. Location is good - three minutes uphill from the upper end of the escalators, buses outside the hotel and the walk into town through HK zoo is beautiful. The gym is very basic, but the view from the treadmill is spectacular. The small roof terrace pool with sun loungers is nice, but gets shadowed from around 3pm in the summer - this area is closed between November and March. Having stayed in a few hotels in HK, I would recommend this one if you're on a budget. If you're partying, remember the escalators stop at midnight and climbing the hill can be a bit of an ordeal - grab a taxi. Pros: View and price; Cons: Basic breakfast and no bar.
