Arrived in the morning quite tired after the 9,5 hour flight from Moscow. The flight was alright exept for that Binna got the only seat in the plane that had no TV screen.... and ofcourse the plane was full so we couldn't change our seats. We watched Dark Shadows on Victor's screen which was OK, Johnny Depp is always good.
Arrive in Hong Kong - Take a nap and generally enjoy the civilizaation that is HK (toilets, showers, western food and products), wander around and take pictures of funny signs, scenery, and just generally enjoy our "soft" entry into Asia.
September saw us go back to Australia for the first time since we left down under. I must admit it is a bit weird going to Australia for a holiday but hey now we know how everyone feels when they come to the land of Oz. So our first stop on the way was Hong Kong, it took us a long time to get there. First we had to fly to London then Helsinki and …
Honkkari tuntuu olevan aika massiivinen kaupunki. Eipä ehdi parissa päivässä näkemään kaikkia kortteleita ja kadunkulmia.
Tein päiväreissun Lantaun saarelle jossa kävin katsomassa Ngong Ping:ssä olevaa Tian Tan Buddha patsasta ja Po Lin luostaria. Metrolla central asemalta Tung Chung asemalle josta köysiradalla Ngong Ping:iin. Ngong Ping:sta …
All is still well, on our final hours here in Hong Kong. Internet access is too expensive at the hotel (and I'm cheap!) Our flight doesn't leave until 1930, so we have some time to kill. Going to explore a little bit more before checking out and getting underway.
We will hopefully get the blog updated soon, even if it's past-tense. Hope all is well!

TravelPod Member ReviewsIsland Pacific Hotel Hong Kong
Loved the hotel. We had a corner room that overlooked the harbour which was great with the massive windows. Room had everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Room was maybe a bit smaller then rooms in North America but did have a 12 foot ceiling making it not seem so small. Loved our stay.

Historical Traveler Reviews Island Pacific Hotel Hong Kong
Been twice will go back again
I've stayed here twice, first for 6 nights and second for 2 nights. For the price I paid both times it couldnt be beaten for what it offered.
The location isnt bad, its not near an MTR station but its near a tram stop and bus stops too and I much prefer the tram as a way to get around as its great fun when not in a rush and as a tourist I was never in a rush. The hotel is in the dried fish district so the first time I went it took some getting used to being hit by the smell the moment I went outside!
The rooms were comfortable, not the biggest but then it served my needs perfectly, the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the view of the harbour was great and kept me occupied for a good few hours during my visit. An english language paper was provided every morning. The staff are nice and all speak english, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them.
I've been back once and i'm looking at going to Hong Kong so I may well head back again! I'd certainly reccomded it!
Excellent service-small rooms!!
Spent three nights in early April 2006 while on Asian vacation. In general, rooms on Hong Kong Island are small and expensive! Wanted Hong Kong Island over Kowloon due to more to do and see on Island. Had my wife and teenage daughter in room so needed two double beds-difficult to find on travel sites (45 days in advance) as most had only rooms for two people with one double bed or two singles. Chose this over two others available in Wanchai as the Island Pacific had no negative comments about room size whereas the others did and price was comparative. Best pricing for three person room was US$ 140 plus tax on Orbitz.
Well, the room was small and with the two beds left little aisle space for all our luggage. Bathroom also small. However, room was kept clean and tidy and front desk staff was attentive and helpful. Hotel is located about 3 miles west of the Central area which you can reach by taxi or nearby tram and bus stops. Ask front desk. There is also a bus stop a block away that takes you up and around the Island to Stanley Market and Aberdeen.
Buffet breakfast was average, cold and expensive at HK$130 or US$17.50. Don't bother-have some coffee and head elsewhere for meals!!
Great value Hotel
We stayed in this hotel in November 2005 and thought that it was really good value for money. We booked it through BA Holidays and it worked out at £100 each for a 7 night stay!
We were in an executive room on the top floor, with really good views of the harbour, we could see all the ferries coming and going. The hotel room is quite small but we had plenty of space for all our stuff and the tons of shopping that we bought! We had a safe in the room and a mini bar/fridge. The bathroom was nice and the bath/shower were adequate. The shower was very powerful and had plenty of hot water day or night. The hotel toiletires were also very nice. The hotel staff are very helpful and polite.
The tram is a couple of blocks away and the MTR station is about a ten minute walk. The only thing I would say about hotel is the overwhelming smell of fish when you enter. I'm not sure if it was from the surrounding shops as the hotel is in the dried seafood district or it was from the restaurant, which we never ate at because we ate elsewhere.
I would have not qualms about staying here again or recommending it.
I checked out of the hotel on the 29th of september, after a very enjoyable three night stay, I was travelling with a tour group which had 14 people in it, I found all of the staff very helpful and polite, Food was excellent, and the rooms spotless. what more could I have wished for.
I would certainley stay there again
Last month I decided I could afford a short break from Bangkok, where I work as a teacher. I decided to come to Hong Kong. I had a central hotel booking agency book me into this hotel for several days. At 11.30am after my first night there the clerk in reception telephoned me to ask how long I would be staying. I told him. Five minutes later he rang back to say that as the hotel was fully booked they needed my room, but a "superior room" was available. At $400+ a night extra. Astonished, I declined the offer and asked to speak to the duty manager. He gave me an explanation I simply could not understand, but he was adamant that I had to move, and that now, the availability of the "superior room" was in doubt. I cannot make any sense of this bizarre pricing policy, unless it was to stampede me, with a few minutes to go until check-out time, into agreeing to the new, quite extortionate rate compared to the originally agreed rate. After a quick check with the airline I decided to cut short my holiday and return to Bangkok that afternoon. I made my feelings clear, along with a full and accurate account of these strange dealings, to the general manager in the guest-response form provided. I have yet to receive any meaningful apology or even a remotely credible explanation of this policy. Imagine buying an airline ticket and being told mid-flight that the fare had almost doubled...! Or buying groceries and being told at the till that the prices displayed were to be increased... take it or leave it! My very strong advice if you choose this hotel is to have the full room rate and dates confirmed in writing before you check in; have the reception clerk write it all down again; then have it signed by the manager.
Was perfect for our needs
We booked this hotel via Cathay Pacific Holidays stopover package. It is not in the "touristy" kowloon (main land) but on hong kong island in old hong kong. We used public transport exclusively during our 3 day stay. The tram line (a must do experience in HK) is a couple of blocks away from the hotel and the trams run very frequently (every few minutes) till nearly midnight. You can take the tram to the nearest subway station or downtown (called center).
The hotel had a good buffet breakfast, with asian and western food choices. The rooms are not as large as US hotel rooms, but that is typical for asian hotel rooms. The hotel staff was very helpful and were able to accomodate our request for an early check in @ 10:00 AM. The rooms have a mini safe, television, and the shower is very good. Housekeeping was prompt and helpful. The hotel also has a complimantary shuttle (hourly) that drops you at the ferry terminal or sheung wan subway (MTR) station. The area around the hotel is towards the edges of the dried sea food market and it's interesting to see some of the stuff sold. The area is fun to walk around and seemed very safe (most parts of HK are).
