Sooooo today is the end of part 1 of our travels!
China has been interesting with its weird concoctions off food, crazy drivers with road signs and lights being described to us as 'suggestions' and there non stop horn beeping - even when the road is clear! China was no way near as touristy as we expected seeing as it has so many landmarks, it …
We started out the day with an old style dim sum breakfast in Central at Lin Heung (Fragrant Lotus) Tea House. If I had to sum it up in one word it would be CHAOS. Lin Heung has been around since the 1920's. Going inside puts you back in time to the 60's. The décor is simple and shabby. One of the things that makes it unique is the bird cages …
What a great first day! We woke up early with no effects of jet lag despite getting very little sleep. Our morning started off with a Shanghainese style breakfast in a tiny restaurant. We feasted on sticky rice, meat buns, soup, egg pancakes and dumplings. I wish I could remember the actual names of these dishes. It was so good! We had really been …
After 26 hours of travel from our hotel in Atlanta to our hotel in Hong Kong, we are finally settled in. We flew Business Elite and let me tell you, that is the way to go! Our seats were semiprivate and folded out into flat beds. It sure was nice since we were traveling with a 1.5 year old. The food was great also! They never let us go hungry. The …
I finally managed to make it down for breakfast this morning. It was pretty good! Still not feeling so great but I sound better than some of the people on the tour. Whatever it is that's going around is pretty miserable.
After breakfast we all got on the bus and made our way to the MagLev station. This just happens to be one of the fastest …

Shangri-la Kowloon has a world class staff who are diligent, efficient, polite and absurdly pleasant. The lobby is impressive and fragrant and the restaurants were magnificent. The rooms are very comfortable and come with a good amount of complimentaries; fresh fruit daily, bottled water, oolong tea. The rain shower head makes for a pleasant shower and the location is very close to central transportation. Not sure if I'd pay $2600US to stay 5 nights there though...but for free it was extraordinary!

Historical Traveler Reviews Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong
Probably the best experience ever. Bought a full price club floor room as it included airport transport and late check out (as well as free laundry). Got to airport after 12 hour flight at 9am, went straight to hotel desk in airport. Whisked to a nearly new Mercedes S-Class. Water and cold towels. Straight to Kowloon. Car door opened by man with clipboard. "Welcome to Kowloon Shangri-La Mr+Mrs Wright - please follow me". Escorted to Club Floor check in on 21st floor I think - no delay. Checked in and in bed for top-up sleep by 10am. Up at 1pm excellent corner room with fantastic harbour view. Only equalled by Island Shangri-La. We have stayed in many top hotels - this was the best. Even got a voucher for a further free stay as we had paid top dollar.
Great Hotel but watch out for the phone fee
I recently stayed here for two nights on a business trip. The rooms are huge, with amenities aplenty (lavender shampoo, remote control cutains, free bottled water!). The Kool Cafe on the mezzanine has a good breakfast (skip the buffet and order a la carte), the lobby is spacious and comfortable.
The staff are about as attentive as any I've even seen. My bags practically got to my room before I did, the "welcome tea" was close behind. I never had to open a door and everyone behind the reception desk adressed me by name when I appeared.
A few complaints - 1) the area around the hotel (tsim sha tsui) is undergoing a lot of constuction, which makes walking around rather inconvenient. Normally the location of the hotel is perfect for exploring (near the mtr and the ferry).
2) a fee of $HK20 (about $4 US) is added onto every phone call you make from your hotel room, even if you use a calling card. This is a huge annoyance especially for a business person who needs to make a lot of calls.
we have stayed at shangri las all, over asia this was the worst not friendly staff tied place only good thing is the location for the money look elsewhere brissy couple, qld, australia
This is a lovely hotel with a great location, but I am sorry to say I think it was a little pricey considering the location of other hotels. Staff were very nice and I cannot fault the view in my room after I asked for an upgrade which was a little difficult to get. I think if I stayed again I would insist on a river view or go to another hotel. I am being picky as this still is a lovely hotel.
We stayed 5 nights on vacation in March 2005 in an executive harbour view room. We had paid "only" £126 per night and feared the room would be small - a common feature of Hong Kong hotels according to our guide book. Instead we found ourselves in a wonderfully large, luxuriously appointed room with a fantastic view of the harbour (only available on the Kowloon side). We arrived at close to midnight but the check-in was faultless and the concierge attentive. We were also presented with a complimentary tea and fruit bowl. Complimentary water and tea/coffee facilities were provided each night The sumptuous hotel lounge offers great, if expensive, drinks with nightly entertainment . The hotel is located away from the frenetic tourist streets - for which we were thankful - but is still very convenient for the main attractions and excellent public rail network. The Shangri-La is of the best luxury hotels we have stayed in (and at our age we have tried a few) - and a bargain at the price. Very strongly recommended.
Absolutely fantasic hotel, what views!
We have just returned from our trip to Hong Kong as part of our honeymoon. We were staying over the Chinese new year celebrations and were lucky enough to have harbour view room which is an absolute must have in this hotel. The room was wonderful, floor to ceiling window with very high quality finishes. On new years eve we had a window table in their Napa Restaurant with birds eye views of their incredible firework displays.
The staff at the hotel were very attentive and its location very good for all manners of Hong Kongs transport systems. Live classy music in the lobby everyday made your return to the hotel very welcoming. Their little touch in the lifts, where each day the mats were changed with the correct day of the week to remind you what day it was, was very nice particularly when you have a little jet lag!
It made a very memorable part of our honeymoon and will certainly be returning in the very near future.
Great location, great views
We stayed at Kowloon Shangri la for 4 night just after Xmas 03.
The hotel is in a great location - only a couple of minutes walk fronm the high speed ferry to HK island and 15 minutes walk to Star Ferry and Nathon Road area.
Our room was spacious and comfortable with a huge picture window giving breathtaking views of HK harbour - this was worth the trip on it's own.
Big soacious marble bathroom and all mod cons. Attentive and friendly staff and decent range of restaurants and nice bar area mad this a greta experience. We would definatly stay here again on return to HK and would highly ereccomend it. We can be a bit picky and hard to please but we thought it was one of (of not the) best hotels we have stayed in.
We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in the Far East. Awesome harbour view room with full floor to ceiling panoramic view of the harbour. This is definitely the best side to stay on as the view is much better from Kowloon. Very centrally located - few minutes walk to the Star Ferry and Underground. Plenty of good restaurants within 10 mins walk. Room was huge plus one of best bathrooms I've ever seen. Fantastic lobby - extremely helpful concierge and doormen. Couldn't fault this hotel, would definitely stay here again. They even change the carpets in the lifts every morning to say what day of the week it is - nice touch when you're on holiday and lose track of the days!!
One of the best in Kowloon
Although not as perfect as the Island Shangri-La, it is definitely one of the best hotel I have been to and my favourite when in HK. The view on the harbour is stunning. The service is wonderful and rooms have everything you may wish to make your staying the most comfortable possible. The Chinese restuarant at the lower lobby is said to be one of the best in HK. I quite agree.
Very plush, beautiful decor, super service. They upgraded us to a harbour view..totally stunning with large floor to ceiling picture windows. Not cheap! We had an argument over a room service bill on which they failed to honour one of their own special offers! We won in the end but it took some badgering to get them to alter our bill! The view is worth the money and it's within easy walking distance of Nathan Road.
