A Surprise Find
Will definitely recommend this hotel especially for family or group travel.
It was a last minute decision to go to Hong Kong and we were lucky to find a reasonably priced hotel near Causeway/Wan Chai areas. As we were 3 adults, I booked for a "harbour view" twin sharing room with extra bed.
When we reached our assigned room (on the 21st floor), I was the first to enter and was really, really surprised to find a dining room, pantry and living room with one bed placed near the panoramic window looking out into the harbour. I immediately looked for the other 2 beds, even thinking that the sofa was convertible to a double bed. It was then that I noticed 2 doors on the right side of the room - one opened to a toilet & bath, while the other to a bedroom with 2 single beds, also with a view of the harbour.
My next thought was, we might have entered the wrong room. But on second thought, the card key fit so this was really our room. We were given a one-bedroom suite.
Unique Quality: The area is very commuter friendly --- 2 minute walking distance from the MTR station, a bus stop next to the hotel, and a pedestrian crossing right in front of the hotel.
Although breakfast is not included in the room, Starbucks and Maxim's are located just across the street, while McDonald's is about 3 minutes walk. There is also Market Place convenient store/grocery next to Starbucks.
The only downside is the non-accessibility to a wi-fi. Internet (wired) connection is charged at HKD130.00 per 24 hours.
Directions: From Airport, take CityFlyer bus A12. It stops right infront of the hotel. OR From Central Station, take MTR going to Chai Wan. Get off at Quarry Bay station. Take Exit C and you'll find the hotel as soon as you come out of the station.
lovely room with magnificent views lovely staff.
they have a gymnasium and a laundromat which came in very handy because we have small chidren. it was abit out the way but was in a quiet location and had the mtr right across the road which was very handy.
Unique Quality: we had the harbour club room which was lovely and spacious.it had a wonderful views across the harbour.
the pool had a circular kids pool which our kids enjoyed. but no bar by the pool you had to order drinks and they would bring them up to you.
Directions: hong kong island

Five-star luxurious hotel
This hotel is actually located in Hung Hom, Kowloon. Service was fantastic, e.g., rooms were cleaned as many times as deemed necessary (the best part of it was that you didn't have to call for room service for it!) You will be greeted daily by all employees and assistance is always offered. Free bus shuttle to shopping areas (Tshim Sha Tsui) is available every 30 minutes from 7am to 11:30pm, enough time for you to wander around the whole day and not worry about transportation back to the hotel. If in case you stay out later than 11:30pm, taxis are available 24/7 and fare is quite inexpensive. A 15-min drive out to the main city cost between $2-3, best part of it, no tips are required. Hotel also provide wedding and meeting services. This hotel is known for hosting weddings. Eleven days out of the 13-day stay we saw wedding ceremonies. Why do people choose this hotel? First of all, Harbour Plaza (Hung Hom) has one of the best ocean-views, which couples take this opportunity for their photographies. Food is superior, staff service is mind-boggling, hotel is grand, and it's just one of the best!!! (You will concur to this once you visit this hotel).
Unique Quality: Great ocean-views, outdoor pool and sauna, well-staffed gym with plenty of exercise equipments, breakfast/lunch/dinner buffet, bar and grill, cafe spot, Japanese (sushi) and Chinese cuisine (dim sum), spa services available from 7am-10pm, free internet connection, free voltage converter (must have!!!!), FREE bus shuttle to main shopping center.
Directions: Located in Hung Hom, Kowloon, close by the Tsim Sha Tsui pier.
Harbour Plaza - North Point
This is a good, basic 4-star hotel at North Point. I was impressed with the whole place, but nothing special stood out. The room was fine, I didn't use any of the restaurants but the bar served good coffee. Note that two taxi drivers mistook my saying "Harbour Plaza" for "Hilton". No idea why. The hotel is just off King's Road and so is convenient for the tram, buses and the Metro. It is also easy for getting across to Kowloon, as the tunnel is not far away. I got to Hung Hom Station in just a few minutes in the middle of the rush hour.
