A late arrival meant a late start. First order of business, at least outside of the hotel room, was dim sum! We just went to this place just down the street from our hotel that the concierge had suggested. We didn't go overboard, for fear of spending too much or overloading ourselves, but it was good. It's a little disconcerting that Hong Kong's currency is called the dollar, but the exchange rate is 7.75 hkd to 1 usd, so things that ...
... Kung - a local place on the water, known for its seafood. There were so me restaurants on the seafront that had tanks with huge fish in them - including one that was about 3m long - I personally have never seen a fish that big! We then headed back to spend another night at the Yesinn - although we had been 'downgraded' back to a small room, this time with a shared bathroom, a set of bunk beds, and the thinnest walls known to man, on the 5th floor! On the 23rd we headed ...
Leslie spent all day in bed. Was it exhaustion from the heat and humidity or was it something she ate? We'll never know. Sleep, fluids and the great companionship of Rick brought her back to life by the end of the day. Consequently, we had to cancel our day trip to Macau. ...
... did lots of walking today all through Lan's local area and it was quite hot and humid so by lunchtime we were ready for something to eat and air conditioning! We had dim sum in one of the shopping centres and we amused one of the waitresses putting soy sauce on things. She kept laughing at us and then pointing out what sauce goes with what. Then she was amused at me getting hot and fanning myself. Once again we were the only westerners ...
... stairs and met the photographer named ping ping, not ping pong, he said. The bus arrived and we met this family of 4 from South Australia and this other couple from Ireland. The first stop on this tour was the peak of Hong Kong Island to get the photos for our 'tacky plate'. On the way we traveled through the underwater tunnel and a tram which took us to the tip. While we were up here we also had a great view of Victoria ...

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
