Best Hotels in Hong Kong
Hey fellow travelers. As a frequent visitor to Hong Kong, I’ve tried staying at many different hotels. In terms of location, let’s start with Kowloon. This is where all the action happens, the center of business, shopping and everything else! There’s a number of hotels in Kowloon. So which should you stay at? Below here are my pick. Hope you find it helpful in some way.
It’s located very near the MTR station so I’m giving points in that sense here. It’s located East Tsim Sha Tsui and about 10 to 15 minutes walk from the MTR in the underground pass. It’s air-conditions, so the walk is really not much. The room is spacious and depending on the side you get (I would think), you get a very beautiful view of the harbour. The bathroom is large with a bathtub and looks very hygenic. The room has flat screen TV and what I loved best was the bench-like seat that’s propped up (more like built-in) right against the big windows. The hotel exterior isn’t much to look at but the facilities can be a pleasant surprise. Two thumbs up for the bar and restaurants as well.
Novotel Hong Kong Nathan Road is one of my favorite. It’s just across from Temple Street Night Market and just 2 minutes walk from Jordan MTR station. It’s probably the best hotel in terms of location for visiting main attractions including Ladies’ Market, the Clock Tower, Hong Kong’s Space Museum and Avenue of Stars. The room itself is very enticing with all he amenities that meets the hotel’s rates, such as iPod docking staion, Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, etc (some difference between the executive rooms and the standard rooms). For this hotel, I especially like that there’s an iMac station in the lobby that you can use for free, so if I was traveling without my notebook, I could still check my emails and do some surfing.
The hotel is located on Nathan Road. What I really like about his hotel is that it’s actually directly connected to MTR station Tsim Sha Tsui and the free shuttle service to Kowloon Station. Also, it’s just a 10 minute walk to Star Ferry, so you can easily visit China (e.g. Macau) as well. As it is near Victoria Harbour, the view is also great. The rooms are a bit small, but you do get to enjoy all the facilities available to city hotels such as flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, coffee/tea area and a mini-bar. But then again the essential services such as money exchange, dry cleaning and airport transportation are all available.
