Ahhh awoke to luxury and an American buffet breakfast... Real western breakfast and as much as we can stomach... Thank you holiday inn!!!! Another lazy morning and then onto the bus heading for ocean park. Hong Kong has two amusement parks: Hong Kong Disneyland (expensive and American) and ocean park (cheaper and a million times cooler). Well what …
Sleep in. Breakfast. Pool time. Markets. New York style pizza. Need I say more?
God it's a hard life waking up at the holiday Inn in Kowloon every day and after our flat out 3 weeks we are still in lazy mode today! A nap by the pool is about the most strenuous things are going to get. These lazy days really do make for terrible travel blogging though. After our exhausting day, we decided that we should make a special effort to …
Put our haggling jocks on today in preparation of doing some serious shopping and so we shopped (but not very seriously) for the **** little things you can only buy really ridiculously cheaply in china! A rubiks cube, a card game, a tshirt.... The usual ****. Then it was off to the post office to send all our very special purchases home. 19.71kgs …
5 AM came quicker than I expected. You'd think that since I wake up around that time every day and have to force myself back to sleep, I'd be okay waking up for an early flight, but of course not. Natalie had the opposite problem; she woke up 5 minutes before the alarm went off in a panic. I still had a bit of packing to do before we headed out to …

Nice comfortable modern rooms. A little bit small though. Plenty of dining options and close to everything. Service is great.

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Golden Mile Hong Kong
Was ok but wasn't that great...
I couldn't get a room prior to my trip to Hong Kong, everywhere I looked on the internet, was too expensive or either I coulnd't book on line. So I decided to just take this matter into my own hand and just go and get a room when I arrive in Hong Kong. I learned at the Hong Kong International Airport that because of the Toy & Gift convention going on in town over the weekend, every hotels were fully booked and it was impossible to get a reasonably priced room anywhere in Hong Kong.
So with the representatives of the reservation counter at the HK airport, we tried to find a room anywhere in Tsim Sha Tsui area, which is like a Union Square in San Francisco of Hong Kong. Finally I could somehow book a room at the Holiday Inn for a price of 306$(USD) per night. I thought cost was just ridiculous but I had no option!!! I am not a cheapskate but honestly speaking I have never ever paid over 250$(USD) for any hotel room I have stayed in the past, that's including Ritz Carlton in US. I guess that's a big difference I have to learn between US and foreign hotels. Anyways so I took a bus to the hotel and found a desk clerk incredibly irritating. I could hardly understand most of the words coming out of her mouth! I thought English was second language in Hong Kong? Perhaps not. I don't mind people with different accents, but it sounded like she had a big cotton in her mouth. She was also speaking so fast that I had to ask her to slow down several times but still she was speaking fast.
Room was ok but definitely not worth 306$(USD), I would gladly pay 80$(USD) however. Room was just like any other Holiday Inn in the US and was pretty spacious to move around, but the view I had was just horrible that I didn't open the curtain during my entire stay there; Getto looking apartment was right into my view that I didn't want to feel sorry for the people living there every time I opened to see the city view. Also alarm clock in the room didn't work, so I woke up later than what I planned and used wake-up calls next couple day. However, location of the hotel was good enough, it was not that far away from the Harbour and metro called MTR. There was the Penninsula Hotel one block away and Granville Market where they sell cheap clothes like Java Market in Los Angeles was also closed to the hotel.
When I checked out, a clerk at the check-out desk wasn't so efficient either and again I didn't quite catch all the words came out of her mouth but definitely she spoke more clearly than the girl who checked me in. But I could also see they were irritated when I repeatedly asked them to explain several times for trying to understand their English.
Over all, I would recommend this hotel when the price is around 60-100$ and for people who'd just want to sleep there and do sightseeing all day.
Holiday Inn, Golden Mile - The Place To Stay In Hong Kong
10 night stay October 05. Our main reason for staying in the Holiday Inn was the fact that they offered Quad Rooms - otherwise if you have two children, then two rooms are required which can be really expensive. This was our first visit to Hong Kong & bearing in mind the fast pace of Hong Kong life we really appreciated the tranquillity offered by our room in the hotel. We were booked in for B&B which was well worth the money - breakfast was excellent with an unrivaled choice. The hotel staff were fantastic & were the nicest group of people one could possibly hope to meet. I have stayed in many hotels within Europe but the staff here were exceptional, particularly Sam (the omlette chef) & Eva. We really enjoyed our holiday & would have no hesitation in returning.
Very unpleasant experience
We had the misfortune of spending 6 nights at this hotel over two stays. Upon arrival at the hotel we were instructed that our rooms had not been prepaid, given that we had arranged prepayment with our agent we were very upset when they refused to check us in until we had agreed to pay for the second time. Upon checking into the room, we were greeted by a bathroom and toilet that had not been cleaned. 10 minutes later the phone rang to inform us that our pre-payment had been received and that they would not double charge us.
Overall this was a very disappointing experience. The bathroom was not clean and was extremely small. The staff were not helpful and the breakfast was significantly over priced. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
If you decide to stay here you made a good choice. I Liked the pool and pool bar, which served cool drinks. I looked out onto the view and saw peoples washing on the building. You could die for the breakfast in the cafe each morning. The MTR is right at your door with trains linking all over Hong Kong. The 7 Eleven is at your door near the MTR station. The airport transfer is rather expensive, Considering it is in a Hong Konger's Family car (a Merc.). Deliatessen corner on the ground floor is a bakery-coffee shop kind of place. You can pick up all kinds of stuff in the hotels shopping mall and in the neighboring Chunking Arcade. The beds are quite comfy and the room fairly large. There is buisness facilities, Showerbath and a Desk. Hong Kong is a huge place so you would not spend much time in your room. There is a Gym and Pool on the roof. Buisness suites are near the pool and very expensive. If you cant afford the peninsula or Kowloon Shangri-La stay at the holiday inn golden mile. The star ferry is only a 10 minute walk away and Ocean terminal not much further. I have added a picture of the view of the famous (Not!) mirador mansions which is nothing like the Golden Mile.
We loved our stay here. The location is excellent-right in the hub of all the action!Right across the street is the MTR station and the ferry and bus stops are within easy walking distance.Tons of shopping and restaurants everywhere around the hotel.We stayed on the executive club level floors that were recently redone and I was very impressed.The rooms were very updated and clean.Lots of extra amenities in the rooms and the executive club was very nice (computers, various newspapers,magazines,drinks,snacks,etc). All the staff that I encountered were extremely friendly and helpful.The views from the rooms are not scenic(they are of apt. bldgs and other highrises) but thats a part of what Hong Kong is and I rather liked it. One doesn't spend much time in the rooms staring out the windows while in Hong Kong, anyway! We will most definitely stay here again on our next trip back. Another plus is that the complimentary airport express MTR shuttle bus services this hotel which is a great convenience.
Excellent location with the subway right outside the door! Great rooms, great staff, great food. The only negative is none of the rooms have any view worth asking for.
This hotel needs help
You know, I really didn't mind the hotels location-even though it seems like I was in the ghetto with all the nearby buildings having laundry hanging out the windows. The hotel really needs to major work. The public area seems run down and the rooms need some remodeling. We tried to check in at 3 pm, but were told that our room wasn't ready due to a tour checking in. The front desk wanted us to go wait in the restaurant until 6pm. They offered us coffee. Wow! They said there were no rooms. After what seemed like forever going back and forth, a room became available. I really wouldn't of minded but we traveled quite far that day and we were really tired.
The best thing about this hotel is its location right next to the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station on Nathan road, less then 10 minutes walk from the Avenue of Stars and the Star Ferry.
The hotel itself is ok, the room was a bit old but large enough and everything worked. Good bargain for about US$130 a night, but I preferred the Hyatt across the street where I stayed last year. It doesn't really matter though, Hong Kong is such a great place you wouldn't spend too much time in the room anyway.
Great Staff and Beautiful Interior
This Hotel is Beautiful inside. And, the great Nathan Road area is very Urban and full of Jewelry bargains. The Staff was Super here. I was not caring for the "massage" ladies who ask you for dates from 9pm til whatever. And I did not like the Tailored Suits India Males who wanted to sell you suits and use up time yakking...But this location is good to see old real Hong Kong streets and good for getting to the Ferry to the Central District.
I think the price of this Holiday with the extra service charges may seem a bit high...but the place is very sharp, I know. I liked the United Airlines Miles I got too via PriorityClubs.
Yes, the Ramada Inn is cheaper somewhat...but this Golden Mile is very lovely.
No views, but superb facilities and professional staff
If you stay at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile, you will experience a hotel that is is tops in every department. The food is fabulous as there are several great restaurants on property. I like the breakfast buffet that has a wide selection. I am so full that I am not hungry until the evening. Even though you are a guest the professional hotel staff treat you like a king, immediatly they run up to you upon arrival and take your bags and assist you. There is a hair salon in the shopping arcade that also gives great massages. Also in the shopping arcade is a convenient dry cleaning service. The location is right at the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station and 3 blocks from the Star Ferry Terminal. The rates at this hotel are very reasonable and the rooms are clean and well kept. The only bad thing about this hotel are the terrible views. Every time I stay here I always seem to get a view of dirty high rise apartments next door with drying clothes hanging from every balcony. But considering the hotel's service is flawless, the rates are very reasonable and the view is not their fault, I have no problem giving the hotel a rating of five stars.
