Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
Nach einem angenehmen, 11 stündigen Flug mit super viel Beinfreiheit (danke Bruno!) landeten wir heute mit ca. 7 Stunden Zeitverschiebung in Hong Kong. Das ist eben fies, wenn man Richtung Osten fliegt. Dafür hatten wir Rückenwind und landeten deshalb früher als geplant.
Die Stadt liegt unter einer mächtigen Wolkendecke, aber immerhin ist …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Royal Pacific Hotel & Towers Hong Kong
A bit small
the location of this hotel is excellent! it's near to shopping malls and transportation. The rooms though are a bit small. They gave us a room where our 2 luggages doesn't have enough space! We're 4 in the family (my spouse and 2 kids), so just imagine how cramped we were! But for tourists like us it wasn't that much of a concern cause we were always out. so if you're looking for value for your money, stay in this hotel! it's on the same street as marco polo hotels and there rates are way higher than this one!
Initially was disappointed with the "lack of view" from the room but when you got your head round the fact it was not a holiday hotel you quickly you accustomed to the "hemmed in" views of a hotel in a busy city. all facilities were provided and sheets/towels were spotless and changed every day. The staff were all very polite and helpful (although always very busy. The hotel itself is a collection of several buildings and built on two underground levels, until you get the hang of it you can spend quite a while in the elevators trying to find the right ground floor level for you. The only area of complaint was the fact that on two mornings, we were woken by loud banging on the door despite having the "do not disturb" sign on the door. I can only presume that they were local "pimps" looking for their working girls! and putting the sign on the door was a sign to tell the pimp where his girls were! I did not report this to security but went back to bed..maybe a wrong decision?
Great for the price
We stayed at the Royal Pacific in September for 3 nights. It was good for the price but on looking back I would pay the extra and go into the Tower Rooms. The bed was very very hard so we didn't get much sleep and noisey because it was over Canton Road. Room was very small (like most in Hong Kong). If you are on a budget like we were its great. Its near the best shopping mall if you want to get out of the heat.
A Week at the Royal Pacific
My wife and I have just spent a week at this hotel. The hotel is about 4 star rating and excellent value for money. The staff are very helpful and all speak very good english. The hotel is about 600 yards from the Star ferry terminal in Kowloon and about a ten minute walk from the nearest underground station. The distances don't sound much but several journeys a day can be very tiring - so be fit or take a taxi.
We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to our next visit.
This is a 4 1/2 star hotel. I am writting this review after staying for 3 days. It is very convenient...right next to the harbor to take a 1 hr boat trip back to China.
I stayed there this late december 2004. My first time to stay in this hotel but i hve been to hong kong so many times.
Our second visit to this hotel in just over two years; room decor now a little tired but it didn't spoil the visit. Hotel wing rooms are small but have all you need, tower rooms are bigger and have harbour views. Location is very convenient - jade market/Temple St/Star Ferry/Nathan Road/Kowloon Park/MTR/KCR all in easy walking distance and huge shopping mall next door. Restaurant OK, but many alternatives nearby (Hard Rock is 5 minutes away if you're desperate for western food). Great view of Hong Kong island and harbour from the bar and walkway behind the hotel. We see no reason to stay anywhere else, this hotel is very good value - especially if you can get a deal that includes the excellent buffet breakfast.
Enjoyed royal pacific
have justreturned from hong kong spent a wonderful week at the royal pacific, room very clean and comfortable though a little on the small size, try the resturants in the shopping mall excellent value for money, areas are a lot closer in kowloon than you think all within walking distance .
Buses on hong kong island very cheap just make sure you have the correct change you are able to get around very easily
