Day 4 - Last things to do

A travel blog entry by pbprogo12 on Jul 06, 2014

Today, we got an even later start. Most of us overslept and missed breakfast, so we went to the coffee shop across the street for a quick bite. We quickly got ready and checked out of the hotel at 1:30, before walking to the nearest Burger King for lunch. After we finished eating, we took the tram to Causeway Bay, where we stopped briefly at Times …

Day 3 - Straight to Macau, and back

A travel blog entry by pbprogo12 on Jul 05, 2014

Today, we got a late start. Even though most of us woke up early and ate breakfast, we didn't actually leave the hotel until around 1. When we left, we stopped at our cousin's house so that he could change first, but since some of us were getting hungry, we decided to wait in a restaurant which was close by. While we were waiting, we ate some lunch …

Day 2 - Too much walking

A travel blog entry by pbprogo12 on Jul 04, 2014

Due to the events of the previous night, we got a late start this morning. We just barely made it to breakfast before they closed and took all the good stuff away. After we all ate and got ready, we went to the MTR station and took a train to Central. There we marked the places where we would shop in on our way back, and went directly to lunch at a …

Day 1 - Sleeping and Stuffing

A travel blog entry by pbprogo12 on Jul 03, 2014

The day began at 1:30 AM when me, my sister and cousins boarded our flight to Hong Kong. After take-off, about 90% of the people on board fell asleep, while I started watching movies for about an hour before falling asleep. I woke up 3 hours later to the sound of the meal cart, which carried the usual bowel-stopping delicacies we all have come to …

    For a 3 night stay, the hotel was very nice, especially the breakfast. And the hotel was located near everything.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Century Hong Kong

    Just okay

    from

    The room itself was modern, clean and comfortable. The location is okay, it's not as close to the heart as I thought it would be. The staff aren't friendly and quite unhelpful. The staff checked us into a room with two single beds even though we had requested a double room. When we asked for a room change, they said it wouldn't be ready until later that evening. We had to check with the front office staff 3 times before they checked us into another room, not what you want when you've been on a long flight and want to relax. I doubt I'd stay here again.

    My 4 days in Hong Kong

    from

    This is my first time in Hong Kong so I can't compare it with the other hotels. The hotel is generally okay although the room is a little bit small. But then I was made to understand that it is generally like that in Hong Kong. I requested for a connecting room and on a non smoking floor. Didn't manage to get the latter but surprisingly the room don't have that typical smoking floor smell like in other hotels. The gym is quite well equipped. The pool is more of a small lap pool. Location may not be the most convinient but then you don't get the traffic noise when you sleep at night.You have to do a bit of walking to the MTR station (Wan Chai) and also to the Causeway Bay shopping area.

    Lovely hotel, brilliant location

    from

    We found the Novotel Century Hotel to be perfect for our stay in Hong Kong.

    Stopping in HK for 4 days before going on to New Zealand, we looked at a variety of hotels and decided on the Novotel on the advise from Trip Advisor.

    You can catch a free shuttle bus from the airport express station in Central to the hotel. Once we arrived we were given a free upgrade to the top floor in an executive room. We had brilliant views and the most amazing walk in shower in the bathroom!

    We found the room to be really clean, with all the facilities i.e - iron, ironing board, robes, toiletires, tea/coffee, TV, mini bar - ideal for a short stay.

    The hotel was ideally located for walking to Causeway Bay, Central, the tram and the MTR.

    I would definitely recommend the Novotel if you are going to stay on Hong Kong island - super location and at a brilliant price.

    Great place and location!

    from

    We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a bigger trip to Australia and New Zealand.

    Overall we found the hotel to be excellent (helped by a complimentery upgrade)! Yes, the rooms are smaller than some hotels; but if you are on holiday, how much time do you spend in the rooms anyway? We found it really easy to get around as the hotel has a great location and although the hotel is in the red light district we didn't come across anything too untoward!

    If you get chance, it is worth popping across the road to MIX, who do a great range of smoothies, pastries and sandwiches and offer free internet.

    I would definately stay in this hotel if I was in Hong Kong again and will certainly recommend it to anyone else!

    Surprising location, i would go back

    from

    I stayed recently at the Novotel Wan Chai for a conference for 4 days. I was a bit worried after i booked the hotel as i later found out it was on Lockhardt road( a red light area). Hovever i found that there were a number of reasons to stay here. Also the red light area extends about two blocks and can easily be avoided.

    price, do not pay full price get a package, they are dramatically discounted.

    transport, 5 mins walk to the Wan Chai MTR, 5 mins walt to tram and bus stations, 10 mins walk to the star ferry terminal.

    shopping, better prices that main tourist areas, markets behind wan Chai MTR station with lots of kids toys and clothes, in the market area there are Sasa, Bonjour, and Angel cosmetics shops, wan chai computer center and another computer centre on hennessy road both within 5 mins walk. Good Yum Cha resturant across the road, 7-11 across the road, great foot reflexology masage centre within sight of Novotel side entrance.

    Room, not bad pretty standard, but clean and reasonable size, nice bathroom.

    Breakfast, great if you get it in your package. buffet style with dim sum, japanese, western, fresh and tinned fruit, fresh and container yogurt.

    Not as busy as many areas we visited, also the markets had maked prices that was a lot easier to deal with than the ladies market etc if you are not experienced in bargining.

    Standard Novotel - OK but nothing special

    from

    We stayed at the Novotel as part of a trip we had made to the far east and Australia. It was largely what you would expect in terms of decor although our room was relatively small (compared to the other hotels we had stayed in - including Novotels elsewhere) And a personal whinge - the bed was too hard!

    The location of the hotel is definitely better for business travellers but there are more conveniently located hotels for the tourist. There are a huge number of bathroom/tile sanitaryware shops nearby - in fact I have never seen so many in such close proximity! but not too mnay of what I would call Hong Kong shopping opportunities. MTR is a couple of blocks away so its not far really. Make sure that you have the hotel name written down in chinese if you get a taxi - our driver couldn't find it and dropped us off late at night on Jaffe Roiad which was an 'interesting' experience. There is a cafe across the road and I would recommend it for a nice good value breakfast. All in all if you have already booked for this place then it will be fine - if you are considering it then I would say look around you might get somewhere a bit closer to the MTR.

    Ideal hotel

    from

    We have recently reutrned from a trip in the Far East. We spent 4 nights in the Novotel Century Hotel Hong Kong. Hotel is situated in an ideal location in the Wanchai area of Hong Kong Island. It is situated on the bus and tram routes, about 10 minutes walk east of the Star ferry. Bus and tram transport very cheap; it cost about 50 UK pence to travel from the hotel to the airport by local airport bus. The train from the airport to the central station was dearer (about UK 4-5) but there was a complimentury bus from the station to the hotel. The bus journey from the hotel to the airport provided excellent views of Hong Kong.

    Hotel was very clean and efficently run. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. There was free complimentary breakfast including tea, coffee, orange juice and pastries from 4am to 7 am. Excellent swimming pool and gym.

    Great location, helpful staff

    from

    I stayed here with a group of classmates in January on a stopover on the way into mainland China, and I think we all had a great time. The location is good, only a few blocks from Wan Chai subway station, and an easy walk to the Star Ferry Wan Chai that takes you over to Tsim Cha Tsui. Bc of a scheduling mishap, some of us got to stay on the executive floor for one night, which was very lovely - free internet, free gym use, fruit basket, lounge, etc. The regular rooms were nice too, although they charge for those extras. But overall, a good experience with room quality and service - very professional. And the lobby has some nice comfy sofas when you're waiting for the rest of the group to meet you downstairs.

    Fine but make sure you get a good deal

    from

    You can't beat the location and as with Novotels the world over you know you can expect a certain level of service. Rooms are not spacious but are clean. Couple of hints/tips:

    1 - the hotel is on the free Airport Express Shuttle Bus (number H2). The bus calls at the hotel about every 20 minutes and goes to/from a handful of other local hotels and then to/from the Airport Express Station in Central (where you can also check in your bags rather than haul them to the airport). Use this rather than waste money on cabs.

    2. The pool is closed in winter (Dec-Mar) and the gym is NOT free for guests. They fail to mention this on their website or in the information provided in rooms. We were not impressed with being asked to pay HK$40 each per session!!

    3. Although the breakfast buffet is pretty good it is expensive and unless you are getting it included as part of your room deal I wouldn't bother. There are plenty of local cafes near to the Convention Centre

    If you are considering the hotel then make sure you shop around for a good deal. I must have checked about 5 or 6 of the main internet hotel booking engines and none came close to the price I eventually got through a regular travel agent. We paid half of the hotels quoted rack rate and got free breakfast on 2 mornings.

    Reasonable Value For Money

    from

    Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in June 2004. Convenient location. Room and public area were very tired and could use or may be overdue for some renewing. Overall physical condition slightly worse than a typical Novotel brand hotel. The service was mediocre, not great but certainly better than a marginal pass, B-/B. Good room rate that "balances out" the shortcomings. I got what I paid for. Yes, I'll stay here again so long as the room rate is competitive.
