    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Causeway Bay Hong Kong

    Good hotel for shopper

    from

    Me, my wife and children 13 and 6 stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. Facilities are basic but clean. Room is small but with sofa bed we could sleep quite comfortably though. The hotel is just right beside Times Square shopping center. You can take MTR from the basement of Times Square. Breakfast is limited to two selecion of food. I like the internet, it is free and fast. Be careful at the lobby, as many people (not guest) come and go in the lobby.

    As I said, this is good hotel for shopper on budget travel.

    Good Stopover Hotel

    from

    Express by Holiday Inn Causeway Bay opened in 2005 and is ideal for the no frills traveller who doesn't want to pay for hotel services they don't intend on using. It is just next door to entrance to Causeway Bay MTR stop and use tourist Octopus Card to arrive from the airport about 30 minutes. Times Square Shopping Centre and the area around the hotel is full of shops and restaurants both western and Chinese. The hotel has 5 restaurants on site and a bar. To arrive to reception there are escalators and the reception area is small.

    The staff were very friendly and spoke English. Our room price included complimentary Breakfast daily and Internet access 24 hours in business centre The rooms are small but were clean and ours offered a great view high up.

    Don't expect anything special

    from

    It is a limited service hotel, so don't expect anything special. Reminded me of my university days when living in the student dorm. It is new and clean. However, the rooms are very small, a bit ugly, and basic, with harsh fluoresent lighting. Most things are self service, with a laundry room, ironing room, and drink vending machines (there is no mini bar/fridge in rooms). There are also no hotel gym facilities or pool. While the breakfast is free, it is very ordinary and there is only 3 options to choose from, so we skipped it most days. All service (front desk and restaurant) was quick and efficient but not exactly friendly. Typical Hong Kong style.

    Recommended and Reasonable with Good Location

    from

    This new and very modern high rise Holiday Inn Express does not have big rooms, or a huge breakfast buffet, but it does offer clean, dependable lodging at a decent price in a good location. No gym on site, but California Fitness (same as 24 Hour Fitness in US) is less than a block away. Hotel guests can work out for US$12 per day. The 'always free' breakfast consists of a three entre choice limited menu, which is different than the cereal and doughnut breakfast bar at US Holiday Inn Express locations. No bell boy, no room service, but it you are an experienced Holiday Inn Express guest, you will not be in for any unwanted surprises. The free internet is also a good perk (and rare in Hong Kong). The Times Square shopping mall is directly accross the street with a subway station and no shortage of eating places inside. The lack of a mini-fridge in the room is my only minor complaint.

    Great Location, Good Facilities

    from

    I definately recommend this hotel. Rooms were exceptionally clean and of reasonalbe size for a budget hotel. The facilities are what you expect free internet acess, a free breakfast etc.

    However this is not the sort of hotel that you would spend a day relaxing at, it is for those spend the majority of the day outside on business or leisure. And the location is great for shopping and MTR.

    I stayed at L'Hotel Causeway Bay and Lan Kwai Fong Hotel also during April 2006 and I found this to be my preferred hotel (prices were all about the same).

    Good value hotel

    from

    This hotel is ideal for anyone visiting Hong Kong for a few days and for whom a hotel is more of a place to sleep at night rather than spend much time in. My wife and I spent most of our 3 days in HK (Jan 2006) exploring the city and not in the hotel and considering how much it cost for what it offered (approx HK$ 700 per night) this hotel is ideal.

    The rooms could be a little bit bigger, but all the facilities are there, and as the hotel is new, everything looks modern and well presented. even more importantly, the rooms are clean and even though this is an "Express" hotel the staff are friendly and helpful.

    As the hotel is close to Times square transport is nearby, and since it is in a middle of a shopping/restaurant area (although there's plenty of these in HK) finding a place to eat out is very easy.

    Overall, the hotel is comfortable enough and clean - something that cannot be said for many budget hotels.

    Decent place to stay

    from

    This is a nice place to stay if you get a good rate and want to be on HK Island as opposed to Kowloon. It's literally across the road from Times Square shopping center and the MTR station entrance. But be advised after you enter the station, it's a long walk via underground passageway until you actually arrive at the station platforms. The rooms here are comfortable but without frills. The staff is nice too. The free internet access is a plus as is the free breakfast. It's not a buffet but rather a set meal served to you in the restaurant. You get to choose breakfast A, B or C! Holiday Inn pricing is very dynamic so if you're lucky and book this hotel at a good rate, you won't be disappointed. I paid HK$780 and am very satisfied. If I had to pay more than HK$1000 a night, I would look elsewhere.

    Not a great experience

    from

    I stayed here for a night in March 2006. On the plus side it is clean and there is free broadband internet in the rooms if you have a lap top. However, for the price it is very basic - tiny and chaoic lobby; very utilitarian rooms; and an almost inedible breakfast (with Hong Kong "service" at its best). The location is not as great as some make out as Causeway Bay is not really close to anything useful, and is a pain with suitcases from the Airport Express.

    In my view by shopping around you can do better in Hong Kong for this price.

    Great Location, Free Internet

    from

    i thought this hotel is a great value for the location, price, etc.

    Bfast was free

    Internet was free

    Location is just behind Times Square in Causeway Bay so just a hop, skip & jump from the MTR.

    We fit three people in a room and there was no extra charge for the third person.

    Overall, i would recommend it if u just need a clean, safe crash pad in HK.

    Very Convenient

    from

    Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express @ Causeway Bay for 1 night. The room was pretty small. Flourescent light fixtures made the room feel like a college dorm room. I think halogen ligts would've been a better choice. The hotel is fairly new so all facilities were clean and spotless. Bit on the pricey side considering I paid $200USD per night and the soap came out of a wall dispenser. Also, bring your own shampoo and conditioner...the bathroom offers a dispenser which dispenses a soap that can be used as shampoo also. No bellhops available b/c it is an "express" hotel. They do offer luggage carts like the airports though. All in all, the locaton was unbeatable (right across the street from Times Square) and I guess if you book early and get a good rate...this hotel would be a very good choice.

    The whole city is one of contradictions- it is modern, democratic, elegant, clean, organized beyond believe and very accessible to tourists, but it agreed to be taken back by communist China without a fight. You can pay for everything (from ...

    I tried to do a bit of research but the HK Tripadvisor site really is very bad, with places that are actually way down in Kowloon (and I now know exactly how far away that is) being shown as just around the corner. Anyway, I ventured back out into the crowds, now doubled in density and slowness, ...

    but my best excitment for this trip was another remote, isolated country that had long been on my wishlist, Myanmar.

    A few words about grammar and style before I go on to part two of my wonderful journey through china. For the most part, when I sit down at whatever internet cafe is convenient to write out something on my blog, I don't put much thought into form and substance. I know a few basic details or funny stories that I want to pass on and I flex what little mental muscle I have and type away. Some people have said I have some sort of great writing style, or that its some kind ...
