Great location in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui in the Kowloon Peninsula, B P International is close to the outdoor markets, lots of little restaurants nearby, etc. The room I had was quite nice, quiet, all the amenities needed, (TV, free WIFI, stocked fridge, desk area), including a bathroom you could move around in.
(I did have some photos, but someone inconveniently erased them from my camera!!)
Unique Quality: This hotel is on the schedule of FREE BUSES from the airport train station! very efficient and frequent service.
This hotel is listed on many websites, including AMERICAN AIRLINES, which is where I booked it from.
Directions: not far off Nathan Road
Stayed here in Nov. 2009. Loved it. The rooms were a bit small, but it was in a great location. Just a block from the Airport bus drop off and 1 block from the Jordan MTR, which is two stops from the night market and 2 stops from the ferry/harbor area. This hotel abuts the Kowloon Park, which adds to the view.
The rooms had air conditioning, tv, the usual freebies (toothbrush, comb, toothpaste, shampoo, lotion), water boiler, and a cleverly hidden hair dryer in the side table. There was a dispenser on the wall for hand soap. There was bottled water and beverages, drinks for a fee. I asked for ice and it was quickly brought to my room. There is no swimming pool at the hotel. There is a restaurant, but I did not try it. There is a 7-11 and a Welcome supermarket across the street which made things convenient.
Check in was easy and the staff spoke english well. This is a big tourist hotel, there was a line of luggage in the secondary lobby and lots of places to sit and wait for others. I asked for a late check-out and they said that they could only extend it by 1 hour. The check-out line was a long 15 min. wait. The staff was nice and accommodating.
I would definitely suggest that others stay here as it was convenient and a pleasant stay. I had a view of both the harbor and Kowloon park, which was nice.
I would highly recommend this hotel because ;
1. service is excellent
2. they provide toothbrush, toothpaste, hairdryer besides the usual stuff...
3. hotel looks fairly new
Unique Quality: The hotel is close to plenty of restaurants, so don't have to worry about food.
There's a 7-11 just opposite the road in front of BP International, so if you feel like having some cup noodles or sushi (they have some nice sushi pack for about HKD 18 only), just pop over to 7-11.
Also close to the MTR, just go towards your right.
The hotel itself is really nice, although the rooms are rather small for the amount you are paying. The hotel is in walking distance (few blocks) of the harbour and dozens of good restaurants (including cheap eats if you are on a budget). One block to the nearest subway station. Was worth the splurge to stay here.
Unique Quality: Great views from the upper floors ... we were on the 24th floor and it was fantastic to watch the laser lights show each night at 8pm on all of the skyscrapers across the city. See attached photo for the view from our room.
Es un hotel muy muy recomendable. Muy bien situado cerca de todo. Fue la sorpresa de todos los hoteles en todo el viaje.
Gente muy amable, buen servicio de habitaciones, bien situado hacia el aeropuerto.
Uno de los autobuses del aeropuerto te deja justo en una de sus esquinas.
Para ser HOng Kong la calidad precio fue inmejorable
From the name, it sounded to me more like a hostel than a hotel. When the first step into the hotel lobby, it's so different from my 1st visit to Hong Kong staying in Concorse. BP has a huge lobby with cream white marble flooring. The check in counters are situated are the side with a smaller entrance. It has a pub/ live band in the hotel on the second level, we didnt had a chance to eat there so I could not recommend anything. It had a big stair way from the second level to the first level makes it look grand.
We asked for a quad sharing room, the room is consider medium in size with 2 sets of bunk bed. Toilet is small but modern. Shower room is divided with a glass panel slide door to the powder area. Clean & quite. Outside every level, near the lift area, there's a water dispensal with hot/ cold water, can refill anytime of the day.
View from the room (7th floor), lower rise buildings & partial harbourfront view.
Very pleasant stay & location is best.
5 mins walk to Jordan MTR, 15 mins walk to Tsim Sha Tsui.
Unique Quality: Unique of BP is, the price is worth the stay in such convenient location & new renovation. Everything is just within reach, 7 eleven right across, kowloon park right behind, food & restaurants just within 5 mins walk (front/ side walk ways), shops within 5 mins walk too. Not to know if there's any swimming pool in this hotel.
All hotels in Hong Kong seem to have small cramped rooms...BP International was no different compared to western hotels - however; the location, brightness of room, view and helpfulness of the staff made up for it.
We arrived at the pier from Shenzhen on the hydrofoil and were able to walk right to the hotel.
We had been told that the rooms in Hong Kong tended to be a bit small and true to form, they were! We soon became acustomed to the fact that although small they had comfortable feel to them, were well appointed and had everything we needed for a good night's sleep.
We purposely requested a room with a view on an upper floor wanting to be away from any noise and again they met our need.
We would happily recomend this hotel to people considering a hotel stay in Hong Kong.
Unique Quality: The staff were GREAT! very accomodating, always willing to provide us with information and all having great english skills.
Easy to read maps provided at the lobby and consierge was great at dutifuly highlighting and marking points of interest for us.
Just around the corner is the park and you can walk out the door, just around the corner, through the park and be at the pier to watch the pyrotechnic displays at the Kawloom skyline!
Metro was also easy to locate as were all the major shopping areas in Kowloon.
From the hotel we walked to Bird Park (not to be missed) and the various specialty shopping areas throughout.
We booked through Asiarooms.com and paid approx. USD $80.00/night dlb occupancy
Directions: Right in the heart of world famous Tsim Sah Tsui area of HOng KOng. Just on the other side of Kowloon park and within a couple minutes walk to the famed shopping area.
Stayed in hotel for a weekend in Hong Kong. Nice accommodation. Perfect if you are looking for cheap accommodation but don't want to risk it at a guest house in Tsim Sha Tsui. Very small room with 2 bunk beds. Nice views from 14th floor. Not the best place if you plan to spend a lot of time in your hotel room, but perfect if you only need a cheap, clean room to sleep in.
Unique Quality: Nice views. Good service. Excellent breakfast.
Directions: Tsim Sha Tsui. Close to Kowloon Park and Nathan Road.
This a very good hotel....quite new and very clean. The price is a bargain at USD85 for a quad/triple room. The room is small as expected but the facilities are very nice...especially the bathroom. I would definitely stay in this hotel when I visit HK again.
Unique Quality: Central location...very convenient.
- Just beside the Kowloon Park.
- A few minutes walk to/from China Ferry Terminal in Canton Road and Jordan MTR Station.
- Near Temple Street and the "Golden Mile" Nathan Road for good shopping opportunities.
The exterior of the hotel was not fancy-looking, however the cozy reception more than make up for it.
Overall, the staffs were pretty polite and efficient, one particular staff from the concierge impressed me no less with his professionalism.
As the room was newly renovated, everything looks brand-new. I like their clean and bright interior which is very similar to those Zen-like concept.
Location wise, it's pretty near to Canton Road and for me, I love to walk through the Kowloon Park behind the hotel and walk my way to Canton Road.
Certainly worth giving this hotel a run for your moo-lah...
Unique Quality: We stayed on the 21st floor and had a great view from our room. It was absolutely breathtaking be it day or night. This is one of the perks from the stay there which delighted me even till now. =)
The BP International thrones over the Northern end of Kowloon Park, just a few minutes walk from Jordan MTR (subway) station and the hustle and bustle of Nathan Road with all its shops and restaurants.
All rooms include air-conditioner, cable TV, hair drier, fridge, kettle and in-room safe.
If possible, try to ask for a room on an upper floor facing south, as they provide a great view across TST and HK harbour.
Asiarooms.com offers some very good deals for the BP International as well as most other hotels in HK. It's worth checking!
Directions: Top Northern end of Kowloon Park, very close to Jordan MTR (subway) station. You can't miss it...
The hotel staff is very friendly, accomodating and helpful. They will walk you to your tour bus and also walk you to the airport shuttle. They provide currency exchange and also will take care of your postcard mailings and all of your tour details.
The rooms are small though very clean and include a mini bar, fridge, tv, hairdryer, coffee maker, slippers and wake up call should you need to awake early in the morning. The hotel maids were efficient in cleaning the room everyday and stocking the mini fridge. I had a standard room so my view was of Kowloon and not the harbour though still a great view of Temple Street and the Jordan area of Kowloon. I would suggest if it's your first time there, spend a little more and get the harbour view. Though at the time in 2005 there was not yet a no smoking policy in Hong Kong I was never bothered by cigarette smoke.
The location of this hotel is fantastic. It is close to the airport shuttle and the mtr stations both in Tsim Sha Tsui and Jordan are only a few minutes away within walking distance. The front of the hotel is on Austin road. If you turn right on Austin and walk about a block you are on Nathan road which is known as the Golden Mile of Hong Kong with it's eclectic eateries and shopping boutiques. If you turn left when exiting the hotel you can walk about a block and arrive on Canton Road which I did every morning and only about a 10 minute walk to the Star Ferry and the Avenue of the Stars promenade.
The hotel is situated almost right within Kowloon Park. You are near the Temple Street night market, the jade market, the Harbour City shopping center on Canton Road and all the exciting attractions are within your reach.
Would definitely stay there again if I were to stay in Kowloon.
Directions: City Center
I splurged my first night in Hong Kong with this hotel which, after a long schlep from the airport, I discovered to be absolutely beautiful. The room was spotlessly clean and had a view of the harbor.
Unique Quality: Very near the night market, Nathan Road and many of the most popular Kowloon sights.
I stayed at this hotel during my lastlay over in Hong Kong. It is a 3 star hotel in the Kowloon district of Hong Kong.
7500 Yen per night (booked through a travel agent in Japan).
Unique Quality: 6 km from the airport in Tsimshatsui, the prime shopping and commercial area.
Directions: In the city center, 1 km from the railway station, 16 km from the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.
Unique Quality: Good location offers easy access to all parts of Hong Kong. If you are looking for good location, comfort, and affordable price, then this hotel would be a good choice.
Any comments to share on BP International? Is the place relatively new, clean and safe? what about in terms of location and size of rooms? thanks!
BP international is ok, conveniantly located near the Nathan road, Subway, night market and kowloon park. rooms are nothing special but like I said ok.
If you decide to stay there I'll look up a restaurant for you near the night market. It is called stylistic food plaza, but I forgot the streatname. Cheap food and mainly local customers, but the great plus : an english menu. Loved the oyster pancake, noodles, white chicken, squid and chily pork
Happy travels ! Regards, Roelof
BP International is a great stay. I stayed there in February of this year, my first time and I loved it. The rooms are clean, the hotel is centrally located so you have about a 15 minute walk to the Star Ferry and Victoria Harbor, Mtr is almost right outside the door and the staff is friendly and very accomodating. There'a also a great little buffet breakfast in the hotel. I would and will definitely stay there again. I booked the room online through www.asiarooms.com and got a great price. Enjoy.
It would be great if you could recommend the place to find good food, thanks!
Please see my answer in the stylistic food plaza thread!
