Historical Traveler Reviews B P International Hong Kong
Not that bad at all, very convenient
Reading the reviews after being at the hotel, I feel some of the critics need to be put in perspective. As someone mentioned about frequent travellers being used to higher standards, I might agree. Though I travel a lot and some places have been worse.
Its true, the beds are hard ( I like it this way )
The room we had was small, but it was also clean and the appearance was very modern. I am not a small person, so the room should not be much smaller ;-) Dont bring to much luggage.
The location of the hotel is close to perfect if you are not prepared to pay for an downtown hotel. 4 min to the sub, 5 min to the ferry to Macau, a few minutes to the buses.
We had a splendid view on Hong Kong skyline, the park beneath the hotel and the harbour of Kowloon.
True there have been scouts in the place, well behaved young people, well it somehow reminded me of my scout days, though we did not have a nice hotel like this.
Breakfast was ok, fresh prepared eggs can not be cold, juice was cold though, but then wants it to be warm?
May be the Internet connection usage could be free of charge.
Not for the season travler
After my travle plans changed,my wife and i could only get this Hotel to stay in.
After reading some of the reviews in here,thought it sounded ok.
We arrived to no doorman,unhelpful desk staff and after a long flight wasnt happy with the reception we got.
Construction was going on ,which we were unware of when booking,but got to our room on the 20th floor.
The room was very small,the bed was harder than concrete but the room was tidy.
The next morning after a sleepless night ,i went around the corner to the usual Hotel we have stayed in for a couple of years,only to find we could only get in for a few days there.
The breakfast was in a large hall and the food was cold and not much selection.
Towards the end of the stay, the renovactions had beed done.
The enterance way was lovley but unfortunatley the service did noy change.Paying guests are made to find a seat in the reception amoungst all the boy scouts that have there head quarters in the 4th floor, this area,should only be for guests.
The new restaurant was open and looked great,with the key word being LOOKED.
No change in the food or service.
I recomend that if you want budget then engoy as this is where this Hotel is, but if you do travel overseas a fair bit and like helpful staff, good beds,and a room YOU CAN swing a cat then id go eles where.
I feel it could be a good Hotel and encourage them to post this to all to read,but also make there own comments about there Hotel
To be recommended !!
We were very happy with this hotel. The price was very cheap (with hoteltravel) but all the confort was there : The rooms are not too small at all, and very clean. There is hairdryer, new shower and very good mattress. All of this was newly renovated. The restaurant was in working when we were there (april 05) but it doesn't mather for us. You better have to eat in the city. Very well located hotel, 4 Minutes walk from Jordan metro station. We've asked for the more higher room possible, wich we got. The view on buildings was excellent, for a standard room. A free shuttle bus brings you from the airport express station to the hotel.
I love it!
This hotel is located in a prime area in the Kowloon side, short walk to MTR and the major shopping/eating area. They just renovated for a while and this makes the rooms have a very modern touch. I love their bathroom. There is no bath tub but hey, I only need to have a shower after the whole day of activities and it really looks amazing. The room is quite boutique hotel like and clean. Well, the size of the room is small but that is Hong Kong! The hotel shared the building with Boys Scout Hong Kong, so expect to see a lot of them. However, since the hotel is at the top floors, it is still quite. The only problem is they donīt have iron to provide in your room (not even you called housekeeping). However, they have a coin laundry and there are 2 irons but who would like to iron in a laundry room?? Overall, I like this hotel a lot and would recommend to others.
Lack of hospitality is an issue at this hotel
I had booked a stay at BP International in Kowloon, HK in September of this past year. I was treated exremely rudely and arrogantly by the management of the hotel. I found the hotel to be extremely discourteous to me. I would strongly urge the hotels management to ask western patrons about their opinion of how they were treated by the staff/management.
During my stay I have stayed at a number of other Hong Kong Hotels and my experience in the other hotels was well above average in my stay, accomodations, couteousness and outrright being pleasant.
I would not recommend the BP International House to any western tourists.
Excellent level of service. Hotel was more luxurious than expected. Short walk to MTR. Next to large park. Room was small but had excellent facilities e.g. bathroom. View of the city was outstanding. Staff efficient though expected tips.

I had this conviction hit me about a week ago after an initial conversation, but it has taken this long to gather my thoughts to put into coherent writing. This post is intended to reflect on the luxuries we take for granted in America, which are not always shared by other people around the world.
