The Empire Hotel Wan Chai

Reviewed 3 July 2012

Very Nice Location for Partying in HKG but the rooms are very small and Half of them have no Views. The loos are extremely small, Its like a bull in a china shop, u perpetually keep hitting thing around. never tried the food but there is lot of options just around the corner. The front desk was helpful but the concierge was sometimes not. But for partying its very well located with lots of pubs & discs all around.

Room Tip: Try getting a upgrade to bigger room and loo's.

The Hotel is just another regular 4 Star property.
No Frills attached. The rooms are big , and relative old interiors in the room , but they are clean and spacious.
The breakfast was reasonable - not much complaints though , but I felt a little cold in that place.
Its in the close vicinity of the red light area- so nights you can observe the action.

I wonder why Hotel try to charge for Internet these days ???

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are anyday better

Stay for 2 nights for family vacations.

We normally stay in Kowloon, but this is the first time we try HK side. Empire hotel on HK side is convenient and comfortable hotel. Room is nice, clean, and comfortable. Size is average HK standard. Location is easy walking to Wanchai MTR.

Location of the hotel is good in the heart of Wanchai, easy to get to the Metro and HK Convention Centre. They have a very nice lobby when I asked if they had WiFi was told no wifi. Asked again the next day if they have Wifi anywhere in the building, again was told no. Third day ventured to the business centre and promptly found wifi, why this couldnt have been suggested earlier to me I dont know. Turns out the business centre is actually rather nice.

My Room (twin) was rather tired, carpet seemed a bit dirty, bathroom also not that clean but also not a terrible state either. Beds are narrow and linen very average.
Being at the heart of Wanchai you have to be prepared for the noise at night, whilst not unbearable, not great either if you want a good nights sleep, the music on the street can go on till 4am.
Overall not the worst hotel I've stopped at but will not return and try somewhere else when I return in a few weeks

I stayed here for 2 nights and selected the hotel for location and price. Having lived in Hong Kong for many years I knew what to expect so was not really too disappointed.
I had requested a double room but was told this was not available so was given a twin room. My room was small and looked in need of a re-fit (badly scratched furniture, faded carpet etc.). The bathroom was very poor- in particular, the shower head was not secured so every time I turned it on it flew into the air drenching everything in the bathroom except me! I asked for it to be repaired and maintenance visited the room 3 times but the problem still persisted. Eventually the duty manager moved me to a junior suite which was much appreciated.
A wel located budget hotel- perfect for those who really only need somewhere to sleep and good access.

Stayed: March 2012
