Historical Traveler Reviews Shamrock Hotel Hong Kong
Way only three lousy stars??? This place "rocks"!!!!
We stayed for three nights in this hotel and it is absolutely worth your money.
Staff was very friendly and helpfull. The location can hardly be any better, you are close to almost anything! The subway is a few meters/yards from the entrance, and busstops and taxistands are almost in front of the door.
The rooms are clean, and again, you have all you need. When I go to Hong Kong, I will stay in this hotel again!!!!!
My friends and I stayed there for 4 nights in Nov 06 and prior to that, we were warned of the small room size but upon checking in, the room wasn't as bad as imagined. Compared to many other hotels in HK, the room size was considered ok, bearing in mind the fact that we had 3 people. Many other hotels don't even have proper walking space! There was enough space to open our luggages properly. My room did not have a safe though, although my friend who recommended this hotel had it in her room when she was there.
There is a full length mirror and daily papers sent everyday. The toilet has a bathtub with a standing shower in it. The location is superb as it is just next to Jordan MTR and it is in the middle of Tsimshatsui and Mongkok/Yau Ma Tei. You can actually walk the whole stretch of NAthan Road. The tv has limited channels though but overall, it is ok and just next to the hotel where you turn right, there are several restaurants serving nice dim sum.
This is definitely a place to stay if you are looking for convenience and accessibility to MTR.
Hong Kong can be very expensive for a family to visit. The Shamrock was a great value. It was centrally located, the rooms were clean and the price included a full breakfast buffet. It is not a luxury hotel, but is certainly a nice place to stay. Recommended for people on a budget,
Excellent location, value for money
Have stayed in this hotel from Nov1 to Nov4.
Room & toilet size are not as small as i have expected.
Hotel staff can speak english & are always putting on a smile.
I like this hotel becos it is so near to MTR station, making it so convenient to travel anywhere.
fyi, famous Australian Diary store is just 1 to 2 streets behind.
One of the Best Hotel
My mom and I stayed in Shamrock hotel last March of this year. We stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights. It is one of the best hotels I have stayed in Hong Kong because of its convenient location, friendly staff and a huge and clean room for twin sharing.
It has a Convenient location in a sense that the MTR station is just beside the hotel. Mc Donald's and 711 is also near the hotels location.
The Staff in this hotel are friendly and accommodating and they are willing to help you in every way they can do.
I look forward staying in this hotel for my future Hong Kong trips.
Best Choice for Budget Hotel!
Excellent choice and great accommodation experience for a 3-star hotel in HK!!! I took the feedback by tripadvisor fellow mates here and stayed 5 nights at Shamrock, it was the best accommodation that I've had in HK. Thanks for the advice here, really appreciate it.
Here are fantastic reasons for stayin at Shamrock:
1) Great location - Jordan station, exit by C1, turn right upon coming out from C1 and Shamrock is less than 2min walk away. 7-11 and eateries just at the back lanes.
2) Spacious and Clean room. Full bath amenities, the twin room I stayed even has a bathtub. Most rooms have hairdryer, if yours doesn't have you can request for it.
3) Friendly service, good housekeeping. English newspaper delivered to your room every morning.
Shamrock is definitely my choice!
Convenient and good space in Premier Room for 2 adults and 2 kids
Hotel Location - Fantastic ... just 10m from entrance to Jordan Station in Kowloon. As for shopping, walk south to go to up-market shopping centres; walk north to visit night and flea markets. Taxi-stand to airport is just 12m from hotel entrance - hotel bell service helped us bring our 3 luggages to the taxi stand.
Hotel Staff - Very proficient in English. Very helpful when asked for directions to places of interest and shopping.
Hotel Room - We stayed in Premier Room that c/w 2 double beds. Just right for the 4 of us - 2 adults and 2 kids aged 2 and 5. The room is pretty big - enough for 2 double beds, a dresser, a small TV sitting on top of a mini-fridge, a 3-seater sofa, a long coffee table and 1 round tea table c/w 2 armchairs. There is even space for the kids to run around. Only problem is that the furniture looked like from the 80s. We moved to this hotel from Disney's Hollywood Hotel. The kids did not feel any difference (they only missed the Disney channel). However, for the 2 of us - myself and my wife, we felt like moving back to Hollywood Hotel because the furnishing, quality of furniture (and mattresses) and deco felt really tired. In any case, we stayed because it is central and spacious, more spacious than the room we had at Hollywood Hotel.
Hotel Room Bathroom/Toilet - Very small. The sink didnt even have space for 4 toothbrushes and 2 tubes of toothpaste. I wonder how the bigger Americans and Europeans can fit into the W/C.
Hotel Housekeeping - Pretty prompt. At close to midnight, we asked for an extra pillow for my older girl to use as a bolster. The pillow came in 10 min. For a 3 star hotel, I graded this service as pretty good.
Hotel Food - Did not try. However, we had a good tim-sum brunch in a Chinese restaurant just 10m from the hotel main entrance. Strongly recommend anyone to try. Only setback about the restaurant is that there is no designated smoking zone - you get to enjoy delicious tim-sum and 2nd-hand smoke at the same time. However, this is probably the same every where in Hong Kong.
stayed for 2 nites. hotel is near to MTR. very convenient. staffs are helpful & kind.
the room allocated was very small though. i travelled w/ hubby & child, wish i had
change to a bigger room, but considering the length of stay, i don't bother.
overall a pleasant stay. recommended for short stay shopping spring traveller.
Love the hotel!
My cousin and I just returned from a 5 days stay in Hong Kong Shamrock Hotel! We had a wonderful time at the hotel. The room was small but it was very clean and neat! It even have a full length mirror and a small cupboard. Despite the small bathroom, they still managed to squeeze in a bath tub! The space is definitely maximised! We were on the 9th floor and had a wonderful view. I will post pictures and you can judged for yourself.
We love the location of the hotel! It is literally a corner away from Jordan MTR and Jordan was two stops away from the Ladies Night Market, one stop away from Temple Street! It is also only a few stops away from Admiralty (which made it convenient to go to Ocean Park) and Tsim Sha Tsui! We had walked to the History Museum from the hotel and it was a breezy and easy walk in the morning.
We had two card keys which was convenient! Also there is a control panel which control the electricity in the room. We don't have to get up from the bed to switch off the light! We can even click on the DO NOT DISTURB sign and it will be lighted up above our doorbell. The Make Up Room sign will light up a discreet green dot in the doorbell area. The service offered by the hotel was impressive. After a quick check-in, the staff politely informed us of the renovation works and apologised for the noise in advance. But we did not see nor hear any signs of renovation at all! If the staff had not told us, I don't think we will know! Anyway, the renovation is supposed to be done by 18th June 2006.
Also, every morning, newspapers was left at our doorstep. My cousin and I wanted to have a stress free and relaxing shopping trip so we left the hotel relatively late every day (around 11pm) yet every late afternoon or early evening, when we return to our rooms to freshen up and rest before 'attacking' the night markets, our room will be made up cleanly and nicely! All used towels and toiletories will be replaced without fail. Also messages were nicely taken down and left in an envelope under our door so we never miss any message!
When we leave the hotel, there will be someone to open the door for us! Believe me, that came in very handy when we had a lot of shopping bags with us! They are always very polite!
Am I impressed by this hotel? In one word, YES! Will I stay in the hotel when I visit HK again? Definitely! The price, location and service are an unbeatable combination!

looked less impressive covered in scaffolding and we decided against it.

Ron was keen to jump in a taxi, but I thought we could walk back, so after seeing about three of the "right" roads on the map, we knew we could walk back to the hotel without getting lost.
All in all, a most successful day.
... a bit worried if we were going to make it, however we managed to get a taxi straight away and we had bags of time, so we wandered around the absolutely huge mall connected to the ships gangway and then watched the famous lights show. Finishing off by having tea sat outside watching as we sailed out of Hong Kong, it was like looking into the future, sandwiched between thousand of skyscrapers with different lights on for miles down the river.
