Cosmo Hotel Hong Kong
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
Today we arrived in Hong Kong for two days of craziness. I was so excited. After a casual breakfast at the back of the ship looking out to the incredible high rise skyline, we decided to head out. Hong Kong is made up of several islands, the main Island where everything seems to be is Hong Kong island, we docked in the terminal just across the way …
... I didn't fall in and every time the boat rocked I began swearing uncontrollably. It was an easy going day...great way to end the week.
Some random things about my stay so far...
- We finally found a flat. It's a 2 bedroom apartment with 5 guys living in it. Don't ask why we just did it. I too sometimes face palm myself thinking wtf. Rent only cost $2300 so we do save there. It's going to be a **** show.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCosmo Hotel Hong Kong
The stay was very pleasant. Although the room is small, but it was kept clean and tidy. tHe service was very good. The concierge even helped us to hail a taxi and to put all the luggage in. I went out after checking out and left my luggage there till quite late in the evening and they were so accommodating in looking after it for me. There were even complimentary coffee, rich and bitter. Quite satisfied with my stay there. Definitley will consider staying there again.

Historical Traveler Reviews Cosmo Hotel Hong Kong
The hotel was above average. Great staff at the reception. A cool bar with nice music with free wireless internet access.
The rooms where small, but well equiped. My only problem with the room is that it was very humid. The alternative was to switch on the AC which in its turn made a lot of noice. There was no possibility to open the window for a bit.
The remote control for my tv was missing and it took the hotel a day to replace it.
For the rest: Clean, nice views and great breakfast.
I paid just under 100USD/night including a simple but OK breakfast in the cafe.
The barpersonal is a great source for city information and they are very helpfull.
Good value for Hong Kong
Hotel is very modern and a newer version of the Cosmopolitan Hotel next door. We paid about 85 GBP for a night which was about average for a good hotel in HK at the time.
The rooms were decorated nicely and were large enough. Ours had a computer for internet access which cost 120HK$ for 24hrs and was very fast and efficient. Our bathroom didn't have a bath but had a fantastic shower. The bedroom also had a flat screen tv.
The hotel is well-located opposite the Happy Valley stadium and less than 10 minutes walk to Times Square and the MTR which gives easy access to Hong Kong station (for the airport train or buses to the Peak or the Star Ferry).
It has a very chic bar serving quite expensive drinks.
Would recommend and use again in HK.
Fabulous new hotel
The Cosmo is a great new hotel. Situated right next to the more elegant Cosmopolitan, the Cosmo is like its hipper younger brother. Good bar with good music on the first floor, the rooms aren't large but are very new and clean. There is a bench shelf under the window that's great for storing lots of stuff. Also internet in the room - $120HK for 24 hours of use, not a bad deal. The bed was really hard, but the flat screen tv on the wall made up for it. This hotel has a shuttle that runs about once an hour to the 3 closest MTR interchanges. It's closest to Causeway Bay, but still a 15 minute walk to the hotel if you don't take the shuttle. Be aware that the rooms with the frosted windows face the cemetary! But rooms on the other side give a sideways view of the new horse-race track.
We stayed in the hotel for four nights in November 2005. Reason why we chose this hotel was the price. It was some kind of opening special price. The hotel was new and everything worked great. Staff was also very helpful. Phone calls from the room were quite expensive. The few phone calls we made to free local nubers cost 20 HKD / call. There were computers in rooms but the connection to the net wasn't free, but there was free wlan in public areas of the hotel.
