Andygailtravel stayed here on Jun 13, 2008 during their trip titled: 2008 Asia Cruise.
We arrived after a long overnight flight - 11 hours - to a torrential rain storm. After collecting bags we bought our travel tickets and went to find the train into town - now I'm glad I read those travel books - thanks Bebe! The train was on time, clean and quick. From the train station we took a taxi to the hotel (for which we had to wait longer …
After not much sleep, celebrating the coming of the New Year with the fireworks over the harbour we made the arduous trek home for a few hours of pitiful sleep before packing up our trusty backpacks, ready for another adventure. Customs, immigration and duty free done, we grabbed some coffee to try and perk ourselves up before boarding our flight …

Lei Ho! New York, London and Hong Kong or as it's been referred to Ny-lon-kong! Three of the world's important financial centers. One certainly gets the feeling that Hong Kong is a vibrant financial and shopping center for the Asian Pacific area. We certainly felt it walking around Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. The last few days …

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hotel Hong Kong
hotel is on renovate rooms are dark and can not see the out side because there is a green net outside building and noise
I stayed at the Park Hotel on my way to (1 night) and from Europe (2 nights). On both occasions I found the staff very helpful and accommodating and my rooms realatively quite (due to the renovations) and very comfortable. It is in a good location not far from most areas in Kowloon as well as close to public transport and shops. The street at the Park is on has 2 of the major electical retailers (Tower and Broadway) any number of resturants including McDonalds and Pizza Hut for the less adventurous along with small cafe's, clothes shops and small supermarkets.
Wait till it's renovated
we had bad experiences also, the staff were friendly & as helpful as possible, but it is truly in the middle of a renovation.
My partner and I stayed there for three nights and by the end of it we were a mess. Without going into the finer detail we experienced the following disappointments or frustrations with this hotel:
I'll think twice
My Partner & I stayed for 2 nights. There were problems with our room (3rd floor) The bed was hard & uncomfortable. The grey water drain from shower / bath was partially blocked. Unable to dine at the restaurant because of renovations, (with notice of indefinate closure) On departure we had to lump our luggage to the shuttle bus
In all, not totally impressed, maybe when the renovations are completed things might change..... maybe
Not good timing...
I stayed in this hotel in 1991 and was very impressed by it. When I was travelling to Hong Kong in 2003, I decided to stay in the same hotel again.
However, it was under reconstruction while I was there... The entrance looked like a builing site. I could not recognise it at all.
I wasn't asked and was allocated to the smoking floor...
The room was different from what in my memory as well. The carpet didn't appear to be clean.
The location was very convenient though.
I guess it will all be different when the reconstruction work is done. It was not good timing.
Uh, stay somewhere else
If you can stay somewhere else, please do. When I was there, the hotel was undergoing construction so my view was obstructive to bamboo shoots and dust. The rooms looked like dorm rooms from a college. If your really on a tight budget and don't mind the cheap ambience, this is the hotel for you. Location was ok. Mcdonalds across the street. Everything is walking distance around the hotel so that was ok.
THis was our 3rd (and definitely the best) stay on Hong Kong. Ignore thef the 3*staus. The rooms are very big - especially in Hong Kong where a double can be a shoe box even in 5*, and very well equiped. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is superb very central for Nathan Road, and the MTR. Definitely a must for us next time!
Park Hotel-Nice place to stay
Stayed at the Park Hotel-Kowloon Side and it was worth it. The hotel has a perfect location for people like me who wants to go to shops who sells goods (clothes, shoes, perfumes, souvenir items etc.) at a very reasonable price. Its just a few minutes walk to the MTR station, some Chinese Restaurants and Nathan Road- where you can find more, more shops. The hotel staff were very attentive, courteous and efficient too. On our next visit to Hongkong, we wouldn't hesitate to stay on this hotel.
Have just spent a week at the Park and found it a very pleasant hotel. Our room (twin) was very spacious, clean, comfortable. and quiet. Found the staff very friendly and helpful, espeically organising tours. The buffet breakfast was good and thoroughly enjoyed the Marigold Bar each evening. This is a great hotel for the price, and a great location, close to shopping, restaurants and transport. We would definately stay there again.
