Regal Airport Hotel
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
We stayed in the Regal Airport last night. The room was beautiful and the service very good. Fantastic indoor and outdoor pools. We headed to the hotel dining room for a very yummy buffet breakfast in the hotel dining room (which included rice pancakes and chicken dumplings). Then off to the pool for a swim and relax on the day bed. We then …
30°C. Felt the heat advancing into the plane as passengers exited. We brisk-walked into the terminal until it clicked with Toby that a sign we passed and glanced at regarding luggage probably had info about where we needed to go (very big airport) and procedure so we went back to read it. He didn't realize how correct he was about this sign's …
Thursday 17th October
Arrived at the Hospice at the ungodly hour of 06.30. At least it wasn’t raining. After photoshoots in our trek t shirts and collecting our breakfast bags provided by the Hospice catering team – what stars they are, we piled on to the coach for our journey to Heathrow. Jenni and the Hospice team …
Friday the 4th of November
We departed Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and flew direct to Hong Kong.
We were only spending the day in Hong Kong as we were to fly to Sydney on that evening.
So we stayed at the Regal Hotel at the airport, which is extremely handy as it is located in the terminal building adjacent to the arrivals hall …
Flying to Hong Kong was really fun 12 hours 40 minutes. I learned that no matter how hard I tried I can't sleep on planes. We got there and due to the delays I had missed my connecting flight to Dubai.
It was only right to join the cue at Hong Kong airport. I was put in a hotel that was really flash. I wasn't able to get my luggage. I …

I am so glad we stayed here. Very clean,spacious, big bed, and easy to get to after a long flight. Just a quick walk over the overpass. And the Express train from the airport got us to the Ritz in less than 20 minutes, and could have delivered us to Hong Kong In another 10 minutes. Definitely will stay here again. Love the refreshing swim in their pool too.

Historical Traveler Reviews Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong
Nicest airport hotel I have ever stayed in
The best airport hotel I have ever stayed in and I have visited many!!! Although the rooms may seem slightly expensive I would say that it is definately worth the price. It also has the bonus of being linked to what some might credit as being the nicest airport in the world. Such a title is more than jusitified.
Basic but Comfortable
I stayed three nights and found the Hotel comforatble but basic. The rooms are quite small and there is only one plug so you can't charge your phone and use your laptop at the same time !!
The staff were polite, efficient and helpful
Value for money and close to the airport which is what I wanted. I paid 100USD per night
I had a room overlooking the airport runways which was nice and would be a plane-spotters heaven.
No complaints. Very convenient location with sweet and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel ~ rooms are a bit on the small side. We stayed there for two nights (one night each way for our actual vacation to Bali...which I HIGHLY recommend going to). I had no problems what-so-ever. I read the other reviews before I traveled and figured I'd chance it anyways; I found, from my personal experience, it was a very nice experience.
Location, location, location
This hotel is SUPER expensive. I paid about $415 usd per night. Only stay at this hotel if you can't bear to leave the airport premises. The train into the city is cheap, clean, fast, modern and easy to navigate. It has space for your luggage and caters to travelers who are coming directly from airport to the hotels. There is a shuttle that will take you directly from train station to many hotels. The point is, its not that hard to go into Kowloon or HK from the airport and only takes about 25 minutes to save hundreds of dollars. If you must stay at the Regal, pay the few extra dollars to stay on the top floor. Your internet connection will be included with the room and you get comlimentary happy hour drinks and snacks. Rooms are larger up here but toilets still dont work. One more thing, breakfast buffett at Regal is good, at least you get something for all that $. Staff is always unfriendly, just accept it.
Convenient but expensive
I have stayed at the Regal twice now out of conveniance to the airport due to early AM departure flights. The staff at the front desk is rude. Having stayed at a 5star hotel in Dong Guan for 5 nights earlier in the week at $80/ night I'd say this place is obscenely expensive. Breakfast for two at the Cafe was over $50.00, my fault for not looking and assuming the breakfast buffet was in the $15.00 range. Talk about sticker shock!
Rooms are small like a closet, bed was hard as a chinese day bed, no U.S. elec. plug for computer. $390.00 / night is big money to me.
If it wasn't the most conveniant game in town I'd avoid it like the plague.
Thanks for info.
We were in Hong Kong recently and stopped by this hotel to check it out due to the fact our daughter would be travelling alone and needed a one night stay in Hong Kong. Went to the reception desk which took us a while to find (which no one working around even looked interested in seeing if we needed help) so finally asked where the reception was. They had one girl on the desk and she didn't even bother to look up to see if she could acknowledge us so waited and finally another guy came from back and we asked prices and he didn't even know what a room rate was and had to go find out a price list. Actually laughed at us for asking because it was a few months away but we were just inquiring while we were there. I wasn't that impressed with the service but because the prices quoted were sooo high thought it must be a wonderful place - thanks for the insight. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile and were very impressed!!
One Night Maximum - Camping
The Regal Airport hotel is integrated with the airport in Hong Kong. That is the only good thing I can say about it.
In summary, steer away from this hotel.
Somehow their star-ranking is inflated well beyond Western standards. The room is about the size of a small inexpensive motel room in the US, and the quality is about the same. The furniture was worn, dirty, and covered with human hair. Other hotels in Hong Kong, such as the Marriot, provide bottled drinking water to all the guests free of charge, and they put a sign in the room next to the sink telling you not to drink the tap water. The Regal Airport hotel would not supply water and suggested I boil tap water in my room using the coffee-maker. Purchasing bottled water at the hotel restaurant costs about 4 times regular airport pricing; about an 8 minute walk to the airport.
If you use the gym, that costs extra.
The heat in my room was broken - so I had no heat for the one night I stayed. Around midnight it became freezing cold, so I turned on the hair dryer in the bathroom and shut the bathroom door. Later on, the bathroom stank of human feces, no doubt activated by the combination of heat and moisture.
The odor was diminished, somewhat, by turning off the hair dryer. The odor was persistent, remained until I departed, and infiltrated the entire room.
The shower was nearly impossible to use. The water temperature oscillated wildly within seconds from cold to scalding hot all by itself. No adjustment could fix this. The shower curtain was molding, hung inside the tub, and would wrap itself on you as the steam rose. This was truly comical, but not funny if you're trying to catch a plane.
Try another one if you can
I used it in coincidence with a late night arrival/early morning departure from HKG. Exclusively tailored for overnight stay. Staff essential and brisk. Room clean but bed not comfortable. Toilet flush not working properly. There is no European/US electricity plug in the room to recharge your computer or mobile phone, which I think it is unthinkable for a hotel that caters almost exclusively to foreign travelers. Given the options existing in Hong Kong, I definitely recommend that you make a different choice if you travel light or have enough time to commute between the airport and the city.
Convenient but rude
I travel constantly through Hong Kong and use this hotel only because of its convenience, which is great, but the staff are frequently rude and have also at times raised my room rate even when I had reserved with a credit card. It is quite a rip-off. They continue to get business because they are the only game in town. It's not that clean, either...it's getting a little run down. But it IS convenient as you never have to leave the airport.
Good comfortable and next to the airport
Good comfortable hotel handy for the morning flights. Good ambience. Expect lots of passengers and aitline staff from the airport.
Rooms clean and air-conditioned - you need it in Hong Kong.
Recommended for stop over in Hong Kong without dragging your luggages into the city.
