Neil and I traveled to Hong Kong and Macau for New Year's 2013 vacation. Visiting this area -especially Hong Kong - mentally bridges our day-to-day realities in the United States with my Chinese cultural background. Before this trip I had only been to Hong Kong on the way to China, so I didn't get a chance to see or experience much. This time we …

... letzten paar Tagen viele spannende Seiten Hong Kong's kennengelernt, die ich vorher auch noch nicht gekannt habe. Wir haben zusammen einige schöne Ausflüge gemacht und so die wunderbare Natur rings um Hong Kong kennengelernt. Man kann es kaum glauben, aber in Hong Kong gibt es neben dem quirligen Stadtleben auch viele ausserordentlich schöne grüne Flecken! An einem Tag besuchten wir ein altes Fischerdorf namens Tai O, welches sich auf Lantau Island befindet. Die kleinen ...

    We had booked a suite with a view over the harbor and was spectacular.
    The hotel is on a very good location in Central, two minutes walking from the escalator (shelly street) so its very easy to go down to soho and LKF or even further. Besides busses and taxis stop in front of the hotel.
    Breakfast is pretty good, dinner is not, so i would recommend you to go out for dinner (in soho for example).
    Service is good as well. Free WIFi in the room!
    Price value is definitely good, so we were satisfied with our choice to stay here.

    Lovely hotel, amazing views

    from

    Stayed for 3 nights in december. paid extra for harbour view suite. we were on 20th floor with the most amazing view over hk island. room clean, staff friendly. a few mins walk from escalators, great location. plenty of places to eat very close so didn't use hotel for food at all. would recommend hotel to anyone.

    Great spot to stay

    from

    Great location and really cheap by HK standards.

    We stayed 12 nights in a twin room. Very small, but comfortable and cleaned twice a day.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    The bars and restaurants are minutes away in the evenings, the parks and the peak tram a short walk away in the day.

    If you go to HK, get an Octopus card at the airport.Its a prepayment credit card that can be used on buses, trams,the metro etc.

    Not posh, but good value...

    from

    My company installed me in this hotel for a 3+ week stay. I was in one of the "suite" rooms, which I would rate as essential for more than a few nights' visit. (Standard rooms are TINY, even by European standards.) The suite was indeed two separate rooms. Furnishings were 3-star hotel quality. Inside of the room was clean, although corridors need refurbishment.

    Great value and views

    from

    Booking a hotel for late August in Hong Kong gave me many options. This is not exactly a preferable time to visit the territory given the oppressive weather but being in the tourist off-season meant that there were many deals to take advantage of. The Bishop Lei is one of the hotels in Hong Kong that offers deeply discounted rates and a good opportunity to pay a lottle for a lot of hotel in Hong Kong.

    Exellent prices for a great hotel!

    from

    I have just spent 10 days at the Bishop Lei in Hong Kong and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone. The prices are very cheap compared to Hong Kong standards (£20 each a night.) The pool, gym, friendly staff and cleanliness of the rooms are excellent!! Whilst it is slightly out of the way of Downtown Hong Kong, there is an elevator which can bring you up to the hotel and taxis are so so cheap and plentiful! Furthermore, being set back slightly from the city gives you a great view of the skyline from your bedroom!!! Exellent choice for someone who wants to save their cash for the shops or travelling!!! Fantastic!!

    Terrible / No hot water! / Stongly advise to avoid.

    from

    A one star hotel at best. Terrible service. Miserable facilities. No hot water for morning showers. Only one bar of soap. Only one roll of toilet paper. Only one box of tissue. Dim lighting. Need to operate the toilet handle several times to activate the flush. Only 10 TV channels. Shabby walls and carpets. Other HK hotels are much better. Even Mainland hotels are better. It's a mystery they are still open for business. Strongly advise against staying here.

    Disapointed

    from

    I was there end of October beginning of November for 13 days. What a disappointment this run down Hotel was. A/C not working.....SHOWER cold water.....BED LINEN was not changed the whole time just rearranged... Next time will pick a 4* Hotel.

    Not Recommendable

    Quiet location

    from

    My uncle went to HK on a business trip and I decided to tag along with him. The company put us up in Bishop Lei International for 4 days.

    Good Value for HK Island

    from

    I lived in HK for 6 months and I would advise anyone who was visiting on a budget to stay here. In my view, this hotel is the best value for money if you're wanting to stay on Hong Kong Island rather than in Kowloon - you won't find a room with a more impressive view of the HK skyline! The rooms are clean and well-maintained and the reception staff are efficient and polite. If you're after glitz and glamour, then you should go to one of the exorbitantly priced chain hotels like the Shangri-la or the Ritz Carlton. But my advice would be to stay here (although ask for a suite rather than the single room, as these can be a bit cramped) and spend the money you've saved on the incredible shopping instead!

    Just okay

    from

    My wife and I just returned from a nine-day stay at the Bishop Lei Hotel in Hong Kong. The hotel is located above Central on Hong Kong island. The Mid-level escalator is a five minute walk from the hotel. Numerous buses stop right in front of the hotel.
