“OK hotel - but not as good at the Hotel Icon!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Stayed here as was very close to the function I was attending and was more suitable than going across to Kowloon given the traffic and the times

As noted by an earlier contributor this is a functional hotel, friendly staff, everything wroks, clean and I hd a great view of the harbour from my room

Clean room, albeit it small and the bath tub is barely big enough for a 5 year old. Being a big guy the bathroom is a tad tiny

But the hotel is good, competitive price (but everything is expensive for the tourist in HK) so never convinced about value in this city given other parts of Asia I visit

Stayed at Hotel Icon (Kowloon) last time and cannot compare the 2 hotels - Icon far superior

But I would recommend this for any traveller wanting to stay on HK close to the ferry terminals etc. Just of you want to pay a tad more go elsewhere

Room Tip: Try t book a harbour view - always worth it in the evening

We chose the hotel from two criteria location and price.
We did also take the advice to pay little extra for harbour view room and I am sure that is worth the extra cost. And yes the rooms are small but so are most hotels I have stayed in HK which are not expensive but big enough for us (2 persons) .
The cheapest rooms are so low in the building I do not like them. We did not eat the hotel we even had breakfast at a coffee shop close by.

i booked the room online after contacting the sales manager of the hotel.i was going from Dubai with husband and daughter. i was given a fair enough offer. but the room i got was facing 2 buidlings- not a good view. the people in the other building could look into our room. the glass was not tinted.

the room was too small for a family. and too expensive for the size. internet had to be paid- expensive. restaurant does not have veg dishes. so eating in the restaurant was almost impossible

but cleanliness was excellent.service was also very good

in general - it is not suitable for family.

Booked this hotel at a fabulous price at the last minute for our 5 day break to HK. The trip happened to coincide with the HK Rugby Sevens event and so was fully booked for the weekend, but didnt feel like it was too busy. Yes, the rooms are compact, the bathroom in particular was a comical point, but the shower is impressive and if you're going to spend time in the room then request a harbour view. The hotel is about a 5/10 minute walk from the mtr which you can access via a direct walkway. Lots of convenience stores close by for drinks/snacks. The closets mtr is Wan Chai, which is only 2 stops from Central. Hotel staff are very very helpful and efficient. Only ate in the hotel restaurant once, and it wasnt spectacular; I would recommend eating away from the hotel if possible. Overall, well priced, well situated, easy to access, perfect for a touristy trip to Hong Kong and you need somewhere to crash.

We can recommend staying at the Harbourview. Firstly, it is reasonably priced, very clean, comfortable and well positioned. We had twin singles and the bed was a tad short for my tall hubby. Make sure you pay that little bit more for a harbour view room (otherwise you will be looking at the cement wall of the next building a metre away - yes, I peeked into a room). The view is great - especially at night when all the buildings light up. Breakfast was basic buffet style - you def won't starve. Staff were courteous and very helpful. It can be a busy place. We saw several tour groups go through. Wifi in your room is overpriced. You can poach free wifi down in the lobby. No flashy amenities like a mini mart, gym or pool, but there is so to do in Hong Kong that we didn't have time to miss them. So for sleeping, showering and basic breakfast - this is fine!

Room Tip: Pay for the harbour room upgrade.
