Hong Kong has been an adventure, The spectacle of Hong Kong island from Kowloon is unforgettable, all neon and lasers, …
Wow! What an impressive, thriving hive of activity is found in Hong Kong. There are people and traffic everywhere with countless selectionsof restaurants serving any type of food you can think of. It is a gourmet's delight.

Located in the Kowloon side, is close to my office as well as bars, restaurants and shopping
Hong Kong is one of my favorites. Friendly people, good foot and so many things to see that it is worth to go back. Don't miss the Buddha statue on Lantau Island!!! Lucky for me that I got a special rate at the hotel I stayed, which is very comfortable, quiet and has helpfully staff. I can only recommend it for people who want to spend more money, …
Slept in so late we ended up just having lunch instead of breakfast at Delifrance. More shopping: this time a little suitcase (to carry all the stuff we've bought), and some shoes for both Jeff and Sherry. Walked through the rest of the Ladies Markets, including stall-holders who chase you down the street to offer you their stuff at half the price …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Royal Garden Hong Kong
Very comfortable, luxurious beds, great service
My Mother & I were very well looked after at the Royal Garden. Initially they tried to put us in a smoking room, but after complaining moved us and gave us a drinks voucher for the bar while we waited for our new room. Very comfortable, great comfy beds & beautiful linen, and the room service we ordered was delicious and of a very high standard. A bit of affordable luxury in Hong Kong and a good location too. 5 star service for a 4 star hotel.
Great rooftop pool!
Ideal hotel for a Hong Kong stopover trip. Very smart hotel with amazing lobby atrium, good buffet restaurant, and great floodlit rooftop pool with views over the harbour. Rooms nice/average and all at good value.
We stayed at the Royal Garden for a weeks holiday back in March and had a lovely stay, the hotel is very impressive and met the 4* status no probs.
Nice Hotel but the service is poor
The hotel itself is in a great location and the rooms are well kept. However, I had a few bad experiences with the staff.
The check-in courtesies did not exist. I was not informed of the hotel amenities, when and where the breakfast would be (included). I received a twin bed room instead of double without being informed upon check-in.
When I left the hotel to go to the airport the cab drivers were refusing to take me to Kowloon Station, even though it was clear they were waiting for fares from the hotel. They told me they only go to Hong Kong Island...I guess the fare was not high enough. Eventually I asked someone inside to help me out. Very substandard service for a deluxe hotel. It spoiled the beginning and end of my trip.
We stayed here in July and had a wonderful time. We had a inter -connecting room and the facilities were excellent -large plasma T.V,really comfy beds, dressing robe and slippers, bottled water repenlished daily.
I stayed at the Royal Garden Hotel in March 2005 and was impressed. The atrium and the lobby are beautiful, and the rooms are very well done. Bathroom was very modern with good-smelling bath products. Our room rate included breakfast, which was a delicious buffet of Eastern and Western foods. The gym was nice with lots of equipment.
If you have decided you want to stay in Kowloon, this hotel is a wonderful choice and less expensive than neighboring luxury hotels like the Island Shangri-La or the Peninsula Hotel. I highly recommend this hotel.
Can't go Hong Wrong...
...if you stay here.
Was there in March and found it excellent. They also let us check in early on arrival (10.00am) and after a long long flight I was very grateful.
Staff were excellent and the roof top pool is terrific.
Obviously the Pen and Intercontinental are more luxurious but I don't think you'll get better value than the Royal Garden.
i had a very nice stay at the royal garden. i will stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone. many restaurants in the hotel and also close by . several shopping plazas right across the street from the hotel.
give it a try.
I stayed here for a week while attending a convention and totally fell in love with this hotel. The rooms are fair sized and include several amenities, such as remote controlled lighting adjusts the mood and ambiance from the touch of a button by your bedside. Our room even had a great view. The hotel has a beautiful lobby, atrium, glass elevators, pool and a nice gym. It has a couple of great restaurants and a Martini Bar on the lower level, but the food is more on the expensive side. You can eat cheaper elsewhere. You are in a great area of Kowloon, just walking distance from tons of shops, a wonderful asian garden, and local entertainment. You will be very impressed with what you get for your money. I travel a lot for work and this has truly been one of my favorite stays. This should definitely be a Five-Star Hotel.
I stayed at the Royal Garden with my wife and family recently and can honestly say that we enjoyed it. The restaurants and bars are a bit on the expensive side, but the atrium inside the hotel is incredible!!
No. 1 man is the pool attendant who could not do enough for you.
We have already booked to go back again in October 2005
