Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
Our visit to Hong Kong wasn't full of highlights like Koh Samui, Singapore or Siem Reap but it was a fitting end to our fantastic holiday through South East Asia. We where winding down and taking in the sights and scenery at a slow and steady pace.
Our first two nights where at the dubious but well located Kimberley Hotel. It gave us great …
Today was our sightseeing day and we caught an early Star Ferry from Kowloon across the harbour to Hong Kong Island. Great views back across Kowloon and amazing to see the hills behind the Hong Kong business area.
We decided to walk to the foot of ‘The Peak’ and then paid the $36HK to catch the Peak Tram up the very steep hill …
Nice easy flight to Hong Kong and landed about 5pm local time. After going through immigration and having a good look at the airport terminal (a Sir Norman Foster design) we decided to take the airport express train rather than take a taxi...budget travel will be a feature of these future entries!!
The airport express train was super fast …
3rdworldturista stayed here on Mar 31, 2010 during their trip titled: Hong Kong.
May 6 to 8th. Back again after a bit of suspense at the border. Left my backpack on the bus on the Mainland China side. You are supposed to take everything off the bus, walk through customs (filling out forms) from China, cross No Man's Land, then fill out more forms to come into Hong Kong. Half way through I realized I didn't have my bag. Couldn't …

Historical Traveler Reviews Kimberley Hotel Hong Kong
Great location with access to MTR food and all shops.This is a modern part of HK with some high end shopping if thats your scene or you can walk 2 min down/up the road to Budget eats and Mc Dondalds.
I just came back from my trip to Hong Kong and stayed at the Kimberley Hotel. I requested for a higher floor and was allocated to room 1515. 2A+1C travelling and were given a superior room (I think so cos I peeped thru other rooms on the same level and some were slightly smaller).
I have just stayed at the Kimberley for 11 nights and have to say that it was very good. The room was certainly large enough for one person and had the all the necessary add ons - hair dryer, mini bar tea and coffee making facilities etc.
Stayed here for two nights in July, overall it is a typical inner city hotel and is good for just a base and bed, staff not particularly friendly and rooms are small
My family (2A2C) and I have just stayed at Kimberly for 4 nights from 31May. Overall, we were quite pleased with our stay there. We were offered a complimentary roll-away bed. The hotel was also generous with its toiletries/towels, like giving us 4 sets instead of the usual 2 in other 5 star hotels elsewhere that we have stayed before. Housekeeping staff were also friendly and prompt in their response to our requests. However, the reception staff were a bit unapproachable/unhelpful. If only they could perform their job with a little smile!
Kimberley Hotel - great location
Stayed 6 nights and found the location excellent just off Nathan Rd. Close to shops and eating area. 10 min walk to Star Ferry and 5 Min walk to MRT. Rooms were big enough for the two of us and were serviced daily. Staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was good value. Will definitely stay there again.
Good clean basic hotel
Stayed for five nights. Excellent location - minutes from Nathan Road in the centre of Kowloon. Walking distance to Star Ferry/Ocean
Terminal, markets, shopping.
Rooms small but adequate & comfortable. Spotlessly clean & serviced daily. If you want a place to sleep and change your clothes this is ideal. Not a place to luxuriate in. Hot/cold buffet breakfast very good.
Very reasonably priced and good value. Would be happy yo stay here again.
Stayed at the Kimberley hotel in March 2005. We found the hotel was in a very accessable area for exploration of Kowloon and Hong Kong island. Kowloon is a very vibrant area to stay with many shops and places to eat. It was very easy to travel to any area from there, quickly and cheaply on the MTR rail system. I recommend the 3 day tourist pass, we definately got our moneys worth. Our room was clean and an adequate size. We did not have a particularly great view, but who wants to stay in their room to see the sights? The staff at the hotel were polite and helpful. I would recommend booking breakfast, it comprises of an all you can eat buffet with western and asian options, plenty for vegatarians too. Hong Kong is amazing, have a great trip!( There are also some great walking tour of Hong Kong guides available at the airport, pick them up when you arrive.)
Well located, good standard hotel
The Kimberley is well located in Kowloon. Everything is on your doorstep. The Star ferry to Hong Kong Island is a 10 min walk away and the metro system is close too. The rooms are small, but hey, it's Hong Kong. If you want space, you need lots of money. If you have lots of money, stay at the Peninsula. I've been told it's the best in the world.
I couldn't fault the Kimberley at all and I love Hong Kong!
Average standard hotel
visited Hong Kong may 2004 our tailormade trip located us to the Kimberley, right bang in the middle of Tsim sha tsui, definately one of the tourist area of HK very busy and if you like shopping this is one of the places to be. The hotel itself was nothing special but served its purposes for a short break. We had standard rooms but was upgraded to deluxe, I do not think we would have noticed any difference as the deluxe came across very standard and a very small, then they gave us a much more bigger room, room 1301 which was fine as there was 3 of us and we had a lot more room. Best of all is the staff, very attentive.
