There hadn't been an island there originally, so they just decided to build this massive expanse of land in the middle of the straight for an enormous airport. Crazy.

Nice hotel. Standard rooms a little small, but nice roof pool and good breakfast. Wifi sadly not in all rooms.
This review is the subjective opinion of a TravelPod member and not of TravelPod.com.
Great pick by the FlightCentre staff, not sure I was their usual clientele though, as I arrived, sweaty, tired, and carting my suitcase like a backpacker, only for the concierge to welcome me and open the door, and then get someone to bring my bag to my room. Awesome view too, Hong Kong in a nutshell, Kowloon, Bank of China tower, Star Ferry, even Victoria Peak, all from my massive window.
Room was good, for all that I spent in it. Hotel in a good location, close to the MTR and tram stop, about 20mins trundling along to Central, quintessential HK experience, and on the AirBus route to Hong Kong airport. Staff couldn't be nicer although not having wifi in room was a bit of an issue, especially in such a wired city as Hong Kong.

Historical Traveler Reviews Metropark Hotel Causeway Bay Hong Kong
Not bad but....
We opted for Metropark as we wanted to stay in Causeway bay and we were on a budget. The hotel was quite new so we expected the standard to be reasonably high.
When we checked in I immediately realised that despite its exterior, this hotel was catering for the mainland tourist trade, so it came as no suprise that the room was small even by HK standards. The room had a musty smell (due to the aircon effecting the curtains) and most importantly NO BATHTUB in the standard rooms, which took us by suprise. We were informed that only deluxe rooms came with a bathtub.
Service wasn't brilliant and i found the concierge rather reactive and rude. Mail packages were never delivered on time, hotel restaurant was also v average.
However, Causeway Bay is excellant for shopping/eating - every type of cusine you want. If you are in a rush, worth getting a left to the top floors of the Times Square complex, all types of cusine under one roof.
The shuttle bus to Wanchai Exhibition Centre was useful and as was HK Central Library, right next door to th hotel which had free broadband connection. There was also a very good Thai restaurant around the corner near Tin Hau station on the main street.
All in all a good deal if you can secure a good rate. Opt for a deluxe room.
Good hotel, but not quite great...
Like the reviewer below, I stayed there for a couple of nights in Nov 04. Agree with most of what was written, particuarly with reference to the location (next to the metro & tram) and the views (fanastic).
Also, the rooftop pool and gym are stunning - even better views from up there !
Only downside was the prices in the restaurant - only had a coffee there, but it was a complete rip-off.... I'd recommend eating elsewhere in HK, you're spoilt for choice after all.
Great for 1st Time Visit
I stayed at The Metropark in Nov 04. The hotel is a good 'starter' hotel to get your bearings in Hong Kong if you are travelling there for the first time. It is away from the main hustle and bustle of Hong Kong but not too far away. The MTR is literally 3 minutes from the hotel and the main stops are only 3 to 4 stops away which is handy if you are out doing late night shopping as the MTR runs til approx 1am.
The room is on the small side and for some reason I thought it was floor to ceiling windows however, I asked for a corner harbour view room which wasn't overly different from the first room given but more spacious and the view (from both rooms) are spectacular!
Unfortunately I didn't get time to explore the facilities in the hotel but the room was clean and the staff were very pleasant.
Nice hotel on Hong Kong Island
This is a nice tourist class hotel. Value for money is good, but do have some minor issues to watch out for.
We took bus A11 from the airport to Causeway Bay (Victoria Park). Cost only $40HKD, which is a bargain. If you don't feel comfortable for this option, at least consider it when you leave for the airport. The bus stop right outside the hotel and runs from 5:30AM till 12AM I believe.
When we got to the hotel past 11PM, the Karaoke lounge is at full swing. Minor annoynance. Once we get to the room, it is nice and quiet. We asked for a non-smoking room, but I have a suspicion that it's a smoking room because 1) I can smell something and 2) there is an ash tray in the room and no non-smoking sign. Since it's past 12AM already, I figured we will hang tight for the night and see how it goes. After a day the smell dissipates, and we feel ok.
The room is on the small side, even in HK standard, but the view more than offset this limitation. All the essentials are there, and there are some nice touches like a marble bathroom. The bed is on the soft side though, it could be me only, since my wife sleeps soundly every night.
Location of the hotel is actually just right for us. It's about 10-15 min walk away from the hustle and bustle of Causeway Bay main drag, but taking the $2 tram makes it quick and easy. Also, it's nice to be not always in the center of action, which can drive me nuts. MTR is very close by to the hotel. The hotel offers a shuttle bus to the main Causeway Bay area, we didn't use it just because our schedule doesn't match. There's a convenience store just down the street.
All in all, we feel it's worth what we paid for.
BTW, if you are in HK, get an Octopus card (you can get one at many places, we got ours at Causeway Bay MTR station.). It's a form of payment for all public transport (no taxi), and it's very convenient to use. You can top it up at a MTR station or the convenience store next door when you depleted the funds on the card. It costs $50 deposit, plus whatever you put on the card (I think $100 is standard). The only catch is, they will charge you $7 if you return it within 3 months. It saves a lot of trouble to carry coins around though.
Loved the Metropark
Stayed at the Metropark last week and had a great time. The hotel room was smallish but very clean and stunning views to the harbour. You must get a harbour view room!
The position was great as the MTR was two minutes walk away and I spent time on the running track in the park right outside. Very handy.
The swimming pool on the roof also gave a fantastic view. I could spend hours up there just admiring the view and watching the world go by.
Everyone was friendly and helpful. All in all the hotel managed to make our stay in Hong Kong memorable.
Good if you stay in a Metropark suite at internet rates.
Stayed in a harbour view junior suite in July 2004. The view was fantastic, the room was tastefully decorated, generous in size and well lit. The bathroom was nice and big and very clean. A couple of small gripes though. 1) the shower door didn't close properly meaning that the bathroom floor was always wet 2) Staff in the executive lounge and priority checkin were less than helpful. Oh yeah, and the dreadful karaoke in the bar every night, and slow lifts to the 25th floor where we stayed. However, if you can get a good internet rate for an exec room (over HKD 2000 is too much) it's a good place to stay. Don't bother with standard rooms, they're too small - even by HK standards.
The Metropark is a recent hotel, and it deserves a 3-stars european rating. The position is OK, it's in Hong Kong Island (don't even think about staying in Kowloon!!!) in a street quieter than most others in Hong Kong, but anyway you get also there a lot of traffic noise (hey, it's Hong Kong!!!)... Of course the rooms are very quiet as the building has 32 levels... Rooms are very clean, but very small. Bathrooms are very nice. Staff is OK. There is an incredible panorama from the 32nd level, the roof-top swimming pool is amazing, although small...
Book front facing rooms
I booked this hotel for an overseas guest recently. The hotel has a boutique feel to it when you go in, but the standard rooms are quite plan and small. The rooms that face the back are so close to the residential apartment blocks behind it that you can see everything they are doing. Hence if you want to be able to open your curtains and have some privacy, you must book a harbour view room. The hotel has one cafe and one bar. It is a reasonably priced hotel and I'd recommend it if it fits your budget.
Quiet, Modern and Friendly
We stayed at the Metropark for a week last August, and found the hotel to be delightful. The staff was accomodating and friendly. The facilities were modern and clean. The hotel restaurant was relaxing and intimate. We thought the best feature of the hotel was it's location. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood next to Victoria Park, just 2 blocks walk to the Tin Hau MTR station. Walking 4 or 5 blocks in any direction and you'll hit tons of shops and restaurants. We loved being in the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, while being able to retreat to this quiet little hotel. We look forward to staying here again.
This is a lovely hotel overlooking Victoria Park and Hong Kong Harbour. The location was excellent with a tube station just minutes from the door. The room was nicely furnished with a wonderful view. The staff were friendly. It has a beautiful swimming pool on the roof. I would recommend this hotel.
