Après plusieurs hésitations, je me suis décidé de faire un détour vers Hong Kong question de goûter un peu à la Chine. Par contre, on parle d'un pays avec deux systèmes qui se confrontent entre le capitalisme d’un bord et une version de communisme/socialisme de l’autre. En passant, le dollar canadien se transige autour d...
Yet again I woke up to read 5am on my watch. Obviously my body had decided that this was the optimal time to wake up in this part of the world. Feeling pleased that I had so much time to spend I took a shower and walked down to the underground station.
On my ride to Central station I noticed most of the other passengers were either asle...

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Citygate Hong Kong
My wife and I transited through Hong Kong on our way home to Australia and arrived at the Novotel Citygate well after midnight due to a lengthy delay to our flight out of Bangkok. We were expecting the worst due to our late arrival but this hotel lived up to all the positive reviews here on TripAdvisor.
Reached HKIA and found the counter B16 to hop on to the hotel's shuttle bus which was provided free. Upon checking in the hotel, I was greeted warmly by English speaking staff. However, the lobby was sort of empty. There is lack of sofa and couches for guests to wait at the lobby. I requested for rooms which are adjacent to each other (next to each other), but the reception staff could not provide me with one. This, I am a little skeptical as there are 23 floors in the hotel, and she could not find 2 rooms which are side by side? On top of that, she gave us the smoking floor, knowing that I am travelling with my family. (2 seniors and 2 adults). I also made dinner reservations at Essence (hotel restaurant) for dinner on the following night after reading that they offer great value for money on food.
After wanting to be close to the airport, I first believed this was a mistake. It looked so isolated as I pulled up, but boy was I wrong! I have traveled and lived in Asia so there were places I wanted to get to in Hong Kong. My first surprise was to find out it is connected to the MTR (subway) which is truly a major gateway. Secondly it is connected to a medium to large outlet mall by escalator. For children of all ages, it is one subway stop away from the Hong Kong Disney resort xchange. They do have a dedicated business floor with separate breakfast eating and free internet which is somthing ACCOR properties offer with Business Rooms. There is also a first floor biz center with internet by the hour or 24 hours. Other wise just use the internet cafe in the mall, just steps away! It is basically free, but they ask you to buy a drink and, if there is a line be on for 15 minutes at a time.. This is especially good for free or quick email checks.-most do not buy the drink!!
I just returned from a business trip that saw me overnight in Hong Kong on the way through to Canada and the US, and I wanted to put "pen to paper" on the fantastic discovery of the new Novotel Citygate Hong Kong.
Greetings to you all,
I stayed at the Novotel Citygate Hotel on June 1st during a stopover from my trip to Australia before flying back to NYC the next morning. Although I did not have too many reviews on this hotel to depend on, I already had my expectations up for this hotel prior to arriving. I'm glad to say that the hotel has exceeded my expectations. I would come back to stay at this hotel during my future visits to Hong Kong. As you can seen from the attached photos I took of my hotel room, the room is very elegantly designed and highlights the success of "less is more". I love the use of glasses in the room. It's just the right touch, and not too excessive. The separation of the lavatory and the shower stall is a nice touch also. The room was small compared to the Nikko Hotel I stayed at in 2005, but it's larger than the Charterhouse (in Wanchai), the Bishop Lei (in Central - mid-levels) that I also stayed at during previous trips, and the Nikko Century Hotel (in Wanchai) that I also stayed at during this trip. The hotel is also connected to a shopping mall. There's a Park-n-shop (?) supermarket, Esprit outlet, Nike-town, movie theatre, G2000, Giordano, etc. I wish I had a chance to stay at the Novotel Citygate longer. I would have loved to explore more of what this hotel offers like the restaurant they have on the ground floor. The hotel is also near the MTR. You have to walk through the mall to get to it. I would say an average of 15 (or less) minute walk. The only "could be better" about this hotel is that it's a 45 minute ride to Wanchai from the MTR. For the luxurious-style the hotel offers, I would take the 45 minute commute anyday!
Agree - excellent hotel at HKG airport
After reading all the reviews about the one and only hotel at HKG airport - Regal, we were very disappointed and its expensiveness. However, in speaking to friends who have lived in HKG they told us about this brand new Novotel Hotel. Like other reviewers here on this board, we were very pleased and it cost half as much as the Regal. The Novotel is chic, modern, friendly staff, small room but very comfortable with good bathroom. We did not make use of the free airport shuttle bus because our flight was early in the morning. However, we got a taxi for HKD50 which was not bad. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended if you want an overnighter for your next flight.
Just stayed at the brand new Novotel Citygate. Very good value four star property situated just ten minutes drive by complimentary shuttle bus from the airport.
We booked the novotel as it was the only other near airport hotel that seemed like it was new and modern and after the Regal gets such bad reviews I wanted to find something else. This is a Brand new hotel, the website doesn't even have photo's, just digital images. It really is a fantastic hotel if you have to overnight near the airport, well it's great at any time but you'd only likely find yourself in the area if you had an early flight.
