This morning we checked out of our hotel and were picked up to start the tour round Hong Kong. The first stop was Victoria Peak via the tram. The journey up was really steep, it made some of the buildings look like they built at a 45 degree angle! Unfortunately, it's still very smoggy so once we were at the top you couldn't actually see any of the …
The first of the trips that I have planned for 2012 arrived - Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Sevens rugby tournament. This was my 6th visit to this great competition in as many years.
My old compadre, Andy Bateman was unable to attend due to a family holiday and I was joined on this trip by another old mate of mine, Les Norman.
When we landed at Hong Kong at 7am it was already 30'C, as you walked out of the airport the heat just hit you. But after that i didn't find the heat much of a problem as it was raining (well pelting down with rain, my waterproof jacket soon came in handy) most the time, the last day was nice and a little too hot at times.
Due to the bad …
Me being me arrived at the airport late, just as the Bunac leader was giving the talk to the group, so i had to discreetly slip in the circle of people giving a nervous smile to anyone who decided to make eye contact with me. I remember the first person i spoke to (although i dont remember his name), and it became awkward after about 5 mins, and i …

Historical Traveler Reviews South Pacific Hotel Hong Kong
I am just coming back from a two days stay at the South Pacific Hotel in Hong Kong. I chose this hotel among the three-star hotels offering in Wanchai because of the good reviews I read about and a good deal I found on the Internet. My experience with this hotel is quite unremarkable, accomodation and service provided was in the average of the three-star hotels and, all in once, I deem I got right what I paid for.
Nice Hotel - even better toilet seat!!!
Nice clean well located hotel. I do agree the rooms are a bit on the small side and the bath would be better if it was bigger or a larger shower cubicle instead. But what impressed us was the electric toilet seat - all singing all dancing - last word in comfort!!! we have order one for our house!. I would definately stay here again.
The South Pacific Hotel is in an excellent location for any traveller to Hong Kong. The service is efficient and courteous. We contacted them by email to arrange Hotel Link pick up from the airport and this worked perfectly. The buffet breakfast is extensive, hot and cold (Western and Chinese) and great value.(£8)The view from the Starlight Lounge on the top floor is stunning. The bar has music and snacks and is a great place to wind down after a hectic day. Rooms are not huge but certainly adequate, proper space for suitcases etc.(unlike many tiny rooms in Paris!)Currently they are refurbishing. Even though we had an older room it was spotless with good quality linen and towels. Bath with shower over, again spotless, shower good and plenty of hot water whatever time of day. The hotel location is steps away from a traditional wet market with fascinating meat fish and veg stalls all displaying their day fresh produce with great pride. The street food and culture is amazing - a real insight into the traditional ways of life in the city. There are trams, buses and taxis a couple of blocks along from the hotel and the nearest MTR station is five minutes away at Times Square(Causeway Bay). Getting around with the Octopus card is so so easy. We went all over the territory on buses, ferries, MTR and trams at an average fare of 50p a journey. Collect your card at the airport and hand it in again at the airport when you leave and get any value left on it returned plus your original deposit - brilliant system! Times Square is big new shopping centre with a fantastic food court and supermarket in the basement. If proper restaurant is what you want it also boasts several of those on other floors. An ideal place to stay, we will return.
The South Pacific has a good central location and is not too far a walk away from the metro. It is also a 5 minute walk away from the Time Square Plaza, which is a huge shopping mall, with everything you need. There are plenty of shops around and a load of restaurants. The rooms in this hotel ARE small, however, if like us you're in HK for a short amount of time (3-4 days) you won't find yourself using the hotel for much more than sleeping and getting ready, for this purpose it was excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The Starlight Lounge on the top floor is amazing!! They do great cocktails (some similar to rocket fuel) and you get breathtaking views across Hong Kong island and across the Bay to Kowloon. Compared to the prices we saw for other hotels in central locations, this is a good priced hotel and definitely worth staying at.
The room we had was verrry small. You could not swing a mouse let alone a cat. there are larger rooms in the hotel (suites) but they are expensive for what you get. On the good side, the staff were excellent and helpful. The food was more than enough even though we had dinner only once in the dining room. The position of the Hotel in Morrison Hill Road is good as there are bus and tram stops near the hotel. The nearest rail station (underground) is under Times Square shopping centre, about 3 minute walk from hotel. There are some good restaurants nearby, both in Morrison Hill Rd and around the corner, to the right, in Hennessy Rd.
I LOVED this hotel
It was so sad to leave HK. This hotel made me feel at home. The staff were so friendly and everything was clean. My room was so comfortable and had a great view. Everything worked fine though the heater didn't seem to be too efficient. Overall, I loved South Pacific and it's located in the most convenient location for getting around. The tram, subway, buses, etc are so convenient and Central is only a short tram ride away.
I will not stay again
Small rooms,not good service ,can meet insects in the room
not worth with price
My first visit to HK was just great!
We stayed at the South Pacific and everything was fine. The room was Ok and the staff were very friendly and efficient. It is very well located being near to the Times Square MTR station. I would recomend this hotel as it was very good value.
