      i might have to be biased with giving it a 4 star since we were given a room with the best view over looking the harbor. the place is close to all the shopping centers both the cheap and expensive kind and if you plan to go to macau the ferry is just a mere walk away. And our favorite eating place Cafe de Coral is nearby..I stayed here twice on different visit and the place just never fails

      Historical Traveler Reviews Prince (Marco Polo Hotels) Hong Kong

      Loved the Prince

      from

      We stayed at the Prince for 9 nights in late January, 2006. We requested and were given interconnecting rooms which were very comfortable and surprisingly large, plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 children (19, 17 and 12). Didn't need an extra rollaway as they supplied 2 doubles in each room. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, especially housekeeping. The hotel leads directly from level 2 and 3 into an enormous shopping complex the Harbour City/Ocean Terminal/Gateway Arcade. You can wander for days and not cover all the shops. Also very close to Star Ferry and MTR and central to all places in Tsim Sha Tsui area. The Octopus travel card is a must for travelling around HK. As this was my children's first visit to Hong Kong staying at the Prince certainly made the trip more enjoyable. Would definitely stay there again.

      Fantastic

      from

      We stayed at the Marco Polo in May, having an entrance in the Ocean Terminal was excellent and means that when dressed up to go out in the evening you could walk the cool airconditioned shopping centre to get to the Star Ferry. We stayed for our Anniversary and were upgraded to the Executive floor, the rooms were spacious and very nicely decorated, breakfast was good and was served in the Executive Lounge,

      Not the cheapest hotel in Hong Kong but we would definatley stay here again

      A nice hotel in an excellent location

      from

      We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on our way home from an around the world trip. We upgraded our room to a suite and had breakfast included in the deal. The suite was really good and was divided into 3 areas with loads of space. The staff, food and location was all excellent. If you get out of the lift on the 2nd floor you enter a shopping mall which seems to go on for ever. If we ever go to Hong Kong again we will be sure to stay at this hotel or one of the other Marco Polos on the same street.

      Nice time at Marco Polo Prince

      from

      Stayed 3 nights at the Marco Polo Prince from 29.10.2005 to 1.11.2005 with family and friends. We booked 4 rooms. Check-in is hassle free, Room is reasonably big with 2 queen size beds, lots of cabinets, clean, and lots of pillows. Location is good, excellent for shopping. Within walking distance to the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR. Lots of restaurants to dine in. Directly opposite the Hotel, is a nice restaurant called The Sweet Dynasty with excellent food, fast service and reasonable price.

      Great Hotel in Hong Kong

      from

      We (2 Adults and 2 Children) stayed at this hotel in June 2005.

      It is an excellent hotel in a great location. It is within easy reach of everything in Hong Kong. It is also attached to a massive mall and you could never go outside if you wished and be happy.

      The hotel is a 1st class hotel and everything is clean and comfortable. You will not be disappointed.

      HATED IT

      from

      I have stayed in Motel6s whose furnishings and room condition were better than this hotel. Nothing seemed to work correctly, ironing board, coffee maker was missing it's carafe. The light fixture fell from the ceiling into the toilet moments after I had vacated it. And speaking of the bathroom, the tile looked tile bad salami, hideous! The breakfast buffet was the worst I had in HK and the walk to the MTR and Star Ferry ( not to mention the pool) was interminable. Needless to say, we moved to another hotel as soon as we were able.

      Small rooms, expensive, old

      from

      This hotel is quite old and the rooms are really of Hong Kong size, e.g. small. We got the luxury room, that was much smaller than, for instance, the same type in the Park Lane Hong Kong.

      We booked, because we joined the famous Oriental Buffet five and seven years ago. The still have this attraction and I can recommend it.

      The location is a matter of taste. It is integrated into a massive shopping centre. If you are looking for the original HK, avoid this shopping centre.

      If you have a lot of money to spend for a few days in HK, choose real quality: The New World hotel or even the Peninsula. They are both more value for money.

      Old and run down - OK value nonetheless given the location

      from

      We stayed at the Marco Polo Prince in September 2004. Got an upgrade to a junior suite due to the length of our stay (7 nights). This is very handy as there were 3 of us travelling together. Overall impressions:

      Pros -

      # Rooms seem spacious by HK standards (Not just our suite - we caught glimpses of other rooms as well during our stay and they were quite large)

      # Our room (except the bathroom) was clean despite the aging decor, furniture, carpet, everything.

      # Location is unbeatable, above the biggest shopping complex in Hong Kong

      # Staff were polite and efficient.

      Cons -

      # The bathroom was very very old, some of the ugly blue tiles (I presume they were in vogue in HK during the 60s?) were cracked and certain parts of the bathroom was moldy (think poorly maintained 2 star establishment - if this is the suite room I wonder what it is like in the normal rooms!). The plumbing and drainage were also somewhat suspect.

      - View: Looking into another office block approximately 10 metres away.

      - There is only 1 key per room.

      My verdict:

      - If all you want is a roof over your head, unbeatable location and a decent price, you've come to the right place

      - If you expect a 4 Star hotel (accroding to the hotel), do yourselves a big favour and head somewhere else as you will be sorely disappointed.

      My suggestion to hotel management: Extreme makeover needed - this hotel ain't no "Prince" (I am referring to the regal variety).

      Decent hotel...

      from

      although, i havent stayed in other hotels in Hong Kong, other than Marco polo gateway and Prince. I think Prince is the better of the 3. It is pretty marginal, no frills hotel...but it is adequate, clean and best of all, nicely located along the star ferry and shopping malls.

      No view in this hotel, and you shouldnt really expect to do any luxurious thing here other than sleep and store your shopping bags.

      Marco Polo Prince

      from

      We stayed at the Marco Polo Prince in September 2004 - when we arrived there had been a booking problem - our agent in England had been informed - but we hadn't ! The reception desk tried their hardest to sort the problem out (thank you Kimi) - we were falling asleep in the reception area as the jet lag had well and truly caught up with us by this time. They could not have been more helpful - and even upgraded the rooms we were allocated. By way of an apology a bottle of wine was left in both our room - and my parents room too! This was great - as the mistake wasn't even the fault of the Marco Polo Prince!

      Anyway - once settled in we had a fantastic time. The quality of the hotel was great - fantastic value for money. The rooms - perfect! The breakfast - enough to keep you going until supper time! The best thing we found about the hotel though, was the location. Perfectly located for the Star Ferry to Hong Kong Island - very close to Nathen Road for all the shops! The food in the hotel was great - but it was so close to so many other eateries - covering all tastes and price ranges too! If there was a problem with our time in Hong Kong - it's just that we only had five nights ! Would have preferred five months !! I hope anyone else going there has as good a time as we did!

      Enjoy!

      We left Nadi bright and early. We were up at 5 am to get to the airport for our 8:20 flight to hong kong. We got into Hong Kong at 2;45pm and don't leave till midnight tonight to transit through Doha, Qatar. One ten hour flight down and one more to go. Since we had lots of time to kill we got an airport lounge room for a few hours to shower and stretch ...

      ... did lots of walking today all through Lan's local area and it was quite hot and humid so by lunchtime we were ready for something to eat and air conditioning! We had dim sum in one of the shopping centres and we amused one of the waitresses putting soy sauce on things. She kept laughing at us and then pointing out what sauce goes with what. Then she was amused at me getting hot and fanning myself. Once again we were the only westerners ...

      ... to get up one escalator (well... Almost). The prices are really good as well, and because of the money differences (e.g. 50HKD is around £4) you feel like you're getting an even better bargain! Anyway, I feel I have had a productive first day of travelling and hope this was an okay first blog post! Now it's past midnight and I can't sleep. Is this what jet lag feels ...

      ... come from Hong Kong but until 2 years ago she had never been. She now lives here, having travelled and worked in a variety of places and countries. We had a great catch up. Having not seen her for more than 10 years it was so nice to catch up on everything we'd done so far and talk about what we want to do in the future. We talked about school, our hometown and old friends...time flew!! ...
