    We stayed in Bishop Lei for 2 days from Sept 28-30. We found the place especially hard to find if you take the MTR and get off at Central MTR. The hotel is located up a steep hill and is VERY far from any MTR. The only good point is it has a free shuttle bus and a bus stop in front of the hotel. We found the hotel standard room extremely tiny, even for Hong Kong standards! We were not even given a desk or chair. The staff are very cold and unfriendly...we tried not to communicate with them much but rather find things on our own. They are no cheap eats around unless you want to eat at the Soho area. Overall experience was very disappointing.

    Unique Quality: It has a reading room and gym.

    Directions: Take a cab from Macau-HK pier.

    Best value on Hong Kong Island

    by

    Booked a suite room through Expedia, about three months in advance they dropped the price to really sweet level.

    Great views of the park, Central buildings and harbour from our side of the hotel. Arrived on Christmas Eve; tried to get to bed with the strains of Midnight Mass below....woke up to a strange whooping sound which we later discovered was monkeys in the park below!

    Room and service were all very good. Recommend the suites for the space and price when you book in advance. It's near the top of the mid-levels escalator, although they also run their own bus which can meet you from the Metro, and other buses run outside the door from the main areas of Central.

    Only thing that was really annoying was the canned music running in the breakfast room over Christmas. Otherwise, the breakfast was also great.

    Unique Quality: Great views towards the harbour. Their website really does not do justice to the hotel...

    Directions: Up the street escalators, turn right at the very top....

    Incredible view at affordable rates

    by

    I stayed at the Bishop Lei for an extended weekend and it was a great experience.

    Admittedly, the rooms are very small, rather old and unattractive. Hence, many people are not satisfied with the hotel. However, the one thing that makes this hotel a worthwhile experience is the breathtaking view from the room's large windows, which can only be matched by a few top-end hotels.

    Facilities include a small but fancy gym and outdoor swimming pool. The latter provides a fantastic view across HK harbour, is an experience for itself and the main reason for recommending this hotel.

    *** The breathtaking views make this hotel my insider tip for all budget travelers who don't spend too much time indoors and want to enjoy a top-notch vista for a relatively inexpensive rate!!! ***

    Directions: Mid-Levels, close to the escalators and HK Botanical Garden.
    I recommend to take a taxi from Central to get there in the first place. After that, the hotel provides free shuttle buses to major locations.

  • House at mid-level

    by

    clean and quiet as it's at mid levels, but it's a little far from MTR station which means accessibility is relatively low.
    as a hostel, this one is rather expensive like $500 sometthing a night. so think twice before you go there.

    Unique Quality: site at mid-level which pretty easy to have harbour view scene.

This hotel truely represents excellent value for money in a city where this is difficult to come by! Avoid staying at the horrendous 'Chung King Mansions' and stay here, right in the centre of Hong Kong Island where the majority of Hong Kong's attractions are to be found. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Bishop Lei: great location and value

by TripAdvisor Member heimishe-traveler

We stayed at the Bishop Lei this week while in Hong Kong. The hotel has a great location, the rooms are very tiny. Try to upgrade to a suite with a harbor view and it will be well worth it (and its not so much more expensive). The upgrade suite is the size of a regular room in most standard hotels.

Our view of the Hong Kong skyline was breath taking! It was so wonderful we slept with our curtains wide open. Floor to ceiling windows! It was a delight to come “home” to that view after a long day of shopping and touring.

The room kind of smelled bad/musty until you turned on the air-conditioning. You need the room key to turn on the power, so the smell kind of gets you every time you open the door. After a few minutes though, its fine. The bathrooms are a little Spartan but the shower was hot and had good pressure, the bathrooms and towels were very clean. The elevators were extremely slow. The hotel has a free shuttle to Stanley Market and Hong Kong Central District, just as the concierge for the schedule of which days and what times. This is a nice bonus. For some reason the hotel staff tried to discourage us from taking taxis saying it would take 10-20 minutes to get a cab. However, we never had a single problem and always got a cab within minutes.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends, because as compared to other Hong Kong prices, the Bishop Lei is a steal.

Best value, great location

by TripAdvisor Member logtostat

I've been for 5 days in Bishop Lei. Best location in HK central, between Soho and Midlevels just a few steps aside from the escalator (Exit Mosque street and turn left). Small rooms (compared to European standards). Great view. Can recommend hotel.

Cool and convenient

by TripAdvisor Member Karen7

We loved the Bishop Lei. It was a cool hotel with nice inclusive breakfast and good facilities. The extra touches like evening turn down and spotless room cleaning were excellent.

We booked a suite, mindful of the tight space in HK and were not disappointed - it was great. Our friend had a harbour view suite and his bedroom had a 270 degree glass wall overlooking the sweep of the habour - amazing.

All the staff were frendly and helpful. True you won't get lots of space in HK but when you see how densely packed the island is, you won't be surprised! It has a great location just off the Mosque St exit of the mid levels escalator, and with cabs plentiful and cheap (under £2/$4 US to Star Ferry / Central) it's simple to get around. Not near the MTR (rail) however, but cabs were great.

The escalator ferried us safely home from Soho and Lan Kwai Fong after a few beers and we enjoyed another lovely stay in beautiful Hong Kong - thank you all!

South Pacific or Bishop Lei

by xsweety

Hi.. Need help to decide which of the above I should book for my stay in Dec. Both seem to have +ves and cons. I'm going for 1st wedding aniversary.

South Pacific:
good loaction - wanchai & causeway near by

Bishop Lei :
Harbour views from room
near the escalators and city center
reviews are good for both. not sure which is more recommended. Plz help.


Note: 2 nights are booked at Dorset olympic (which i think is in kowloon) so plz advise accordingly so its a good mix of all for a holiday

Re: South Pacific or Bishop Lei

I think it really depends on your interest.
I stayed at the Bishop Lei and thought it too be awesome (review and more details on my VT HK page). However, this was mainly due to their awesome pool and harbour views from the room. The room and hotel itself is rather old and you might not feel very comfy staying indoors.

The South pacific hotel is definitely more elegant and you will probably feel very comfy staying in your room. However, there is no way it can offer such amazing views and such a gorgeous pool as the Bishop Lei.

So, if you plan to enjoy the view from bed and relaxing at the pool side, the Bishop Lei would be perfect. If you will only spend the nights in your hotel, don't plan to spend much time sunbathing or swimming, the South Pacific is probably the better choice!

Again, I have a tip on the Bishop Lei on my HK page in case you're interested...

Cheers,
Robert

I live near Bishop Lei & when my sis came to visit w/her boyfriend, they stayed there, like the place coz it is walking distance to the escalator (or up to the peak if you don't mind a 45 minutes walk) the escalator will take you down to Central and etc ... very convenient location

only bad thing is during rush hours you might have a hard time getting a cab coz everyone else is going to try to cab to work at the same time
