Hotel Jen

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 4, 2011

Whilst booking this Hotel I was looking at pics of this hotel and it all seemed very familiar except for the name, turned out that we had stayed here before when it was called Novotel.
So it was a familiar experience when we retuned to stay.

The Hotel has had a revamp and it looks fresh and new and it shows with the experience we had.
The staff were very helpful and friendly especially at the breakfast service when one of the staff members saw me and rememebered that I liked Worcester Sauce with my eggs, and specially went to fetch it from the Bar area and brought it to me, so very thoughful indeed.

The hotel is on Hong Kong Island, and only about 20 minutes by bus or Tram to Central.
If you need to catch a cab back from Central the fare was not very much at around $40 or so.

We stayed there just after they re-opened after their revamp and their prices were very very low, so we got outstanding value for money. (we had another hotel booked and cancelled to stay here instead, so saved lot of money,and had a very good experience)

Unique Quality: In a local area of Hong Kong, so very nice wandering around the streets and seeing where the local people go for their day to day business and seeing all the variety of local shops and what they have to offer.

The Hotel also offers a very nice Rooftop Swimming Pool, I would recomment going up to have a look around as the views are very nice, and if the Hong Kong Heat gets too much, have a dip in the pool, or a quick workout in the Gym, to work off all the fabulous food you will eat whilst in Hong Kong.

I stayed for one night only in earlier September/2008 and found this hotel very nice and its location very convenient since it's closer to the Airport Express train station and also near the ferry terminal to/from mainland China. [MF/2008]

My friends and i stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is newly furbish and all is very nice and beautiful.

It is not really near to any MTR station. However, City Transfer is provided at a fixed schedule to a few location. Check with the hotel staff for the schedule.

I was bunking in with some friends and I did not pay a cent for the stay. Unsure of the prices.

It's a nice hotel situated in wanchai very near to the ferries and 10minutes walk from market.
You pay what you get, a medium class service.Great if you are visiting Hong Kong during fairs it's one block away from the conference center and not as pricy as the rest at that days of the year.

We had actually booked this hotel by mistake. We thought we were booking the Century Hotel, not the Century Harbourview Hotel. It was a bit further from the centre than we intended, but we liked the look of it, so we stayed. It was also slightly cheaper than the other one. This was back before both hotels were part of Novotel.

It was a good hotel; not one of the top-end "rock star" hotels, but very good. Service was great; the rooms large, modern, and clean; and the en-suite bathrooms full and luxurious.

We would stay there again and recommend it to others. It's a good value hotel.

Unique Quality: Spectacular views overlooking the harbour
