Today we have a little bit of a sleep in, like 8am, all got up and showered and could see it was going to be a beautiful day, sun was shining and there was only a little bit of smog. We set off for some shopping at about 10am, but a lot of the shops only open at 11am or 12noon as they stay open till midnight or just before. We decided to catch the …

My first taste of the Orient

A travel blog entry by sranmal


I'd booked a month-long organised trip to China with Gecko's but since there wasn't any time included in the itinerary for sightseeing in Hong Kong, I decided to arrive a few days early to see the sights. I was flying with KLM, which involved a change in Amsterdam. The Amsterdam flight left at 5.10pm Wednesday (19 Aug) and took only 45 minutes, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Plaza Hotel Hong Kong

    Stinking Room


    Centrally located, spacious room and I got a very good price of HKD$550/Night/Room. However, the major problem I encountered during my stay is that the room had a very stinking smell of cigarettes. When I phoned to the front desk telling them the problem and asking for the option to change to a non-smoking room, a staff replied that there was no classification of smoking/non-smoking for standard room type. He said they would provide some air refreshing spray to us. But finally no one showed up and my room still stinked.

    Exceeded Our Expectations - Happy to Recommend


    After spending lots of time on the net reading many reviews and chasing good prices we chose this hotel as it seemed to offer a good balance between price and comfort. We weren't sure what to expect with it being described by some as being out of the tourist area but for us this turned out to be a blessing - no pushy copy product sellers - and almost every mid range store you'd find in Tsim Sha Tsui - many of which were in the ever so convenient enormous shopping centre next to the hotel - the KCR station was so close for our day trips to Shenzhen - and an easy undercover elevated walk to the MTR. Walking distance to the Flower, Bird, & Ladies markets and with the efficiency and regularity of the MTR and KCR you're never far from anywhere.

    Excellent Hotel - slightly out of tourist comfort zone


    This is a classy and professional hotel albeit in slightly off the beaten track for tourists. It is actually very conveniently located on the Mong Kok KCR train station and connected to a shopping center with it's own food court and childrens playground as well as a cinema. This is where you get to see how the locals live. The hotel itself was clean and spacious with marble everywhere - as you woiuld expect from a 5 star hotel. Even the room service was excellent. Don't be put off by the location - this is a great hotel to stay.

    Value for money


    I think the rooms for this hotel is very spacious, especially for a hotel in HK. Although it is not in the center of the is connected to another shopping mall. The MTR is also closeby and the walkways are covered. The train station that goes to China is located at the bottom of the hotel. Would say this is a value for money hotel. Will definetely return to stay in this hotel again.

    An oasis in Hong Kong


    We spent 6 nights at the Royal Plaza Hotel (24/10 - 31/10) after reading good reviews on this site. We were not disappointed and, in fact, this hotel exceeded our expectations. On arriving at the hotel we were offered a breakfast package for a very reasonable price that would also provide us with an upgraded room and use of the health club facilities. We took up this offer and were further delighted on receiving an upgrade from a standard room not to a superior room but to an executive room. The room was large with a kingsize bed and elegant furnishings. The entire hotel was tastefully furnished with high quality decor and not a speck of dirt or wear to be seen. The staff were attentive and spoke good english. The breakfast buffet was worth a visit. This hotel is a little out of the main tourist area but is so close to the MTR to be accessible to anywhere but we were also happy to walk. After a busy day shopping we took taxis which cost next to nothing and are readily available. It was actually great to be a little out of the way so as to not be acosted by watch sellers when you step outside. We didn't try any of the hotel facilities but the pool looked inviting.

    Right in the Heart of the Action!


    Starting from the email reservation made 2 weeks before arriving into Hong Kong, the level of service at this beautiful hotel was well above our expectations. With a choice of a shuttle (AU$25 per trip per person) or limousine (AU$85 per car) straight to and from the airport, our entire experience from being picked up at the airport in a brand new Mercedes was fantastic.

    Nice hotel


    Room with well-equipped, clean, valueable, convenient which is next to Century Shopping Center and subways, walking distance to "Fa Yuen" Street and Woman Street.

    Good value.


    We stayed at the Harbour Plaza Metropolis is April 2005 for 4 nights. The hotel provides good service and good value for money. Whilst it is a little outside the main tourist areas the hotel provides a frequent shuttle bus to the main shopping district. For the more energetic guests, the walk along the Avenue of Stars provides fabulous views and takes about 20 minutes.

    Great location for easy access to city


    This hotel is located in Mongkok which is the most populated area in HK. The train and subway station are attached to the hotel, along with an underground shopping mall which has all the comforts you need.

    Located near the famous Ladies Market where you can stroll late at night and bargain with the locals.

    Hotel rooms are just what you need for a clean and comfy good night sleep. Matresses are hard but that's the same in all of China. Get used to showering on an angle if you're tall.

    Overall, a safe, clean and convenient place to stay. Good price compared to hotels on the island and it really shouldn't take more than 12 minutes on the subway to get there.

    It's good, but can be improved with better service


    I have stayed at this hotel about 3 times, and we have certainly enjoyed our stay on each occasion. It is conveniently located, being built next/within a big shopping centre and easy walking distance to the night markets and big shopping areas.
