With our only full day in Hong Kong it was up and at 'em, with Cards waiting in the lobby at 8.30am to commence our day. First stop was breakfast across the road as the Hotel charges $30 and we couldn't possibly eat that much to make it worth the spend. The coffee was pretty good and it was our first proper cooked breakfast of eggs we have had in 9 …
Welcome to Hong Kong! Oh, the joys of an 11 hour flight with no sleep! We left Milan at 1pm yesterday and got into Honkers at 7am, 3 movies & 2 TV doco's later! Customs was a breeze, unbelievably quick, then straight to the taxi and off to our hotel, the Intercontinental Grand Stanford. Waiting there was Cards, ready to go after two days on her …
This morning we checked out of our hotel and were picked up to start the tour round Hong Kong. The first stop was Victoria Peak via the tram. The journey up was really steep, it made some of the buildings look like they built at a 45 degree angle! Unfortunately, it's still very smoggy so once we were at the top you couldn't actually see any of the …
Our flight into Hong Kong was short and sweet. We spent an hour or so in the lounge at the airport and then headed on to the plane after being delayed for about 20 min or so on the tarmac we arrived without incident. ALthough Hong Kong is no longer part of the UK but China, there is still a separate customs. But so far all customs has been …

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Hong Kong
We recently enjoyed several nights at the InterContinental in Hong Kong. From our harborside room, we enjoyed a stunning view of busy Victoria Harbour and the Central skyline. The InterContinental is one of my favorite hotels in the world just because of this view--I love sleeping with the curtains open and awaking in the middle of the night with jet lag to watch the skyline and the early fishing boats.
The IC in Hong Kong does have great views, without a doubt. But like other posters, the hotel needs some capital investment to bring certain parts of it up to date. In many places, including my room, the carpet was getting on the tatty/ragged side, with obvious worn patches and stains.
After 3 nights at Island Shangri-La, I booked 6 nights at the Intercontinetal as we wanted to try Kowloon.
Nice staff but rooms are small
Hotel was ok. Stayed three separate times on this trip in March 05. First time I was given a king bed with harbor view. Room was a little small. Next two times I was given two twin beds. I asked for a change, but this was all they had. Rooms were not all that clean either.
Generally service in the hotel was very good and, of course, the view from the lounge is the best in Kowloon.
Best View in the World
Dec 2004 & Feb 2005 - Have stayed here on 2 occasions and this hotel just gets better and better. Booked rooms with Harbour Views, well worth it. Room service sitting by your window is a must, never had room service like it. Afternoon Tea overlooking the magnificent harbour is something else, I felt like a Queen. Beats the Peninsula any day. My favourite place in the whole world.
Stayed at the Intercontinental for 5 nights in November 2004 and had a great time. Didn't book a harbour view room but felt that the hotel was still good value. The room that we had was spacious and well furnished and had a nice view of the pool. The bathroom was also well equipped although the decor was perhaps slightly dated for a 5* hotel.
I just returned from a trip to Hong Kong. My harbor view junior suite room was well worth the price. The view of the harbor was spectacular. It was great to just sit in room and take in the view of the harbor and the Hong Kong skyline. I was there in December and the skyline was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The view from my room rivaled the view from Victoria Peak. The hotel is in a great location. The Star Ferry, Nathan Road, and the train stations were all minutes from hotel. There is a really nice walking promenade right outside hotel and by the harbor. The breakfast buffet that was included in my room rate was great. They had anything and everything you could want for breakfast. They have a seafood buffet at night that is expensive, but includes all the lobster you can eat. My room included the Intercontinental lounge where they serve food and drinks throughout the day and at 6PM they serve wine and cocktails. The lounge had laptops that allowed you to access the internet which I did frequently. The concierge desk was well staffed and knew all the answer to any question I asked. This is a top notch hotel that treats you like you want to be treated. I highly recommend hotel and the view.
The impression I had from guide books was that the preferred area to stay in while in Hong Kong is on Hong Kong Island. The fact that most of the five star hotels are located on the Island made me feel even more sure that Hong Kong Island was the way to go. Thank goodness I did not listen to the books or myself. The views from Kowloon are outstanding and ten times better than from Hong Kong Island. Furthermore, I feel the InterContinental is the hotel with the best views since it sits right on the water directly across from the stunning Island skyline. The hotel is only about fifteen floors high so you feel really close to all the boat traffic on the busy harbour. As for the hotel, it has its own stunning lobby and many nice restaurants that take advantage of the view. The breakfast buffet was very good, the best of the four hotels on our China trip. We had a deluxe harbour view room. These rooms are larger than standard rooms and have head on views of the skyline. The room was very nice but in need of about two more pieces of furniture to fill out what you can consider a spacious room. The bathroom was very large, all marble with separate everything. Although the bathroom was great, you could tell it is from the 80's. New fixtures would help jazz it up and help hide its age. The pool area is very nice with a big outdoor pool, bar, and three spa pools overlooking the harbour and city. I did not like that there was no locker room to change so the hotel requested that you arrive from your room in a hotel bathrobe and slippers. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location was great. Kowloon is much nicer than guide books lead you to believe. Skip Nathan Road and head to Canton Road instead. The hotel is set back from the road so it is easy to leave the craziness of the city behind yet the Star Ferry is only a five minute walk away along the promenade.
Just returned from a week at the InterContinental, and could not have had a more wonderful stay. Spacious & very well appointed rooms, along with a great view. The breakfast buffet was the best I have ever seen! Staff was incredibly courteous. I reseached many hotels in Hong Kong before deciding on the InterCon. I definitely made the right choice.
Probably the best hotel view in the world. The harbor side of the hotel is wall-to-wall glass windows with a stunning view of Hong Kong harbor, the beautiful high-rise skyline on the opposite side of the water, and all the boats sailing by. The lobby has the same breathtaking view from a lower perspective.
