    Room was clean but small, no view. It had 2 single beds. Shower was the best part with two heads. Great location, close to Lockhart Road and just down from the Hong Kong Convention Centre.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Harbourview Hong Kong

    Brilliant place to stay!!

    from

    I was researching hotels all across Hong Kong and because my sister is at university and had no job, we needed somewhere cheap to stay but in a good location and the Harbour view int house certainly exceeded in price and location. We stayed in the premier harbour view room on the 17th floor. Very good views of the harbour and Kowloon. The room was slighty small but because we needed a 3rd bed it took up alot of room. Very clean room, bathroom clean and nicely furnished. The only let down was the matresses was hard. The staff was brilliant and realy helpful. The best thing about this hotel was the location. About 5 minute walk to the wan chai star ferry harbour and about 10 min to the mtr.

    Definately would go there again without a doubt and very good for the budget traveller.

    Great Hotel

    from

    Stayed here over the New Year's period for 4 nites, after getting some recommendations form the Hk forums here. Booked it via the official website and firstly got a prompt response, and they even pre-booked an ariport-hotel-airport shuttle for us, all debited into the hotel bill. Shuttle cost HK140 per trip per person, which was a good deal I thought as it brings you straight to door-step, as oppossed to HK100 for Aiport Expres train.

    We got a corner, harbour-view room and size was good, but yes bathroom was quite tiny comparatively. Location was excellent- many cafes, restaurants etc in the building next to it. Although it is a bit of a walk to the nearest MTR, but the ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui is just across the road and taxi to Causeway Bay cost only about HK15.

    Oveall, no negatives about the hotel at all.

    Good value and great location

    from

    This hotel is very good value - ask for a room with a harbour view. The staff were excellent and did their very best to give us a good room. There is nothing luxurious, rooms are a good size but bathrooms are small. Food is plentiful and cheap - ask for a continental breakfast if you want to save money - but not haute cuisine. It is in a fantastic location, just near the conference centre, easy walking distance to the Star Ferry,and to restaurants and night lfe, but quiet and just across the road from the harbour.

    Sehr sauber, Personal sehr höflich und hilfsbereit, gute Lage, sehr guter Preis

    from

    Meiner Meinung nach war dieses hier ein sehr uriges, aber sehr sauberes, neu aussehendes und komfortables Hotel. Nur 5 Gehminuten von der Wanchai Station und den Bussen entfernt. Guter Preis!

    Gute Preis-Leistung

    from

    Perfekt für Geschäftsreisende und Leute, die nur ein Bett brauchen. Exzellente Lage - sehr nahe am Convention Centre (100m). Aber definitiv kleine Zimmer - vor allem, wenn man sich ein Zimmer teilen muss - die beiden Einzelbetten passten gerade noch in das Zimmer (16,5qm). Da wir geschäftlich dort waren, war es kein großes Problem. Es gab einen Zimmersafe, einen kleinen Schrank und eine Dusche über der Wanne (sehr willkommen nach einem langen Tag im Convention Centre). Der Blick von den billigen Zimmern kann schon mal auf eine Betonwand sein, die sich nur ein paar Meter weiter befindet. Einfache und saubere Unterkünfte - exzellentes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, wenn man die Lage und die Tatsache bedenkt, dass man sich in Hongkong aufhält!

    Good value

    from

    Perfect for the business traveler or someone just needing a bed. Excellent location -very close to the Convention Centre(100 m). Definitely small rooms - especially if you are sharing - two single beds just fit in the room (16.5sqm) - but as we were on business this was no problem at all. In room safe, limited wardrobe space and shower over bath (needed after a long day at the convention centre). Views for the cheaper rooms can be the concrete wall of the building a couple of metres away. Basic and clean facilities- excellent value for the money considering the location and the fact that this is Hong Kong!.

    Very clean, staff are very polite and helpful, good location, very good price

    from

    I found this to be a very quaint but very clean, new looking,and comfortable hotel. Just 5 minute walk to to wanchai station and buses. good price!

    Good deal

    from

    There is not much fancy about the hotel. It's old YMCA at Hongkong. The room is quite small and bathroom even smaller. It's in Wan Chai on Hongkong island and is really close to convention center and some Wan Chai government buildings. There is also a Hyatt(?) across the street. It's really nice to walk to bay front and look at all the lights in the night. It's about 10 minute walk to Star Ferry's Wan Chai terminal. Following the elevated walkway past Wan Chai government, it's about 5 minute walk to Wan Chai subway station.

    Hotel staff is quite friendly. There is no 110V power outlet in the room. They offered to charge my 110V GSM cell phone for me.

    In general, this is a ok place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Hongkong island and don't want to spend a lot.

    Great views, but cheap.

    from

    This hotel is called the Harbour View International House, but it's the old YMCA on the HK Island side. There is a big "YMCA" stylized graphic on the side of the hotel. The rooms are very small and the beds (in my room) were just single size and very tiny. The bathroom was just too small for words. Again, it's fine for budget business travel, but forget about luxury. The rooms were basically clean, just old. For the price I would say it was a good value for people who just want a clean, decent room to sleep in and not much else in the way of amenities.

    The staff were all very nice. The hotel has a great view if you happen to be facing HK harbor, and the breakfast buffet in the morning is actually not bad at all.

    Recommended for cost-conscious business travelers or budget-minded tourists. The location is just across the street from the HK Convention & Exhibition Center, and the Wanchai MTR entrance is just a couple of blocks away.

    Good location for a reasonable price

    from

    I spent three nights there in january 2005. The location is the best asset. Only a 5 minutes walk to the convention centre, which is a place to visit whether you are there for business or pleasure, to get a view of both Kowloon and the Central area. The hotel is close to the Wanchai MTR station and the Wanchai Star Ferry pier. Lockhart road, made famous in Richard Mason's The World of Suzy Wong, is a 5 minutes walk away. Here and in the neighbouring streets you can find a blend of discos, pubs, restaurants and girlie bars.

    The rooms are rather small but clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. No fancy furnitures, but a reasonable price (hey, it's Hong Kong, nothing is cheap here). I stayed in a room facing the harbour but unfortunately at the end of the building. Only a small sector of the harbour could be seen due to the end wall. I guess the other rooms will have a better view, but this is not a hotel where you spend a lot of time anyway. Are you looking for a central place to stay in the lower price range I can recommend this place.

    ... and people, and more importantly how to get there. Many good restaurants are on the 9+ floor in some random apartment building. There is a huge custom tailor market here which seems to be quite promising. I met a guy willing to tailor me a suit, shirt and tie, for a little more than $200, which is a steal for Hong Kong prices.

    I was only here for a day, and the only sightseeing I did was at night. I took ...

We must admit to having wandered past a number of restaurants looking for something to eat. And, while we like to know that the food we are going to have is prepared fresh, we really can't come at selecting something live from the tanks in the window (or the bowls on the footpath in a number of cases)!

We stopped for some food at a typical local Hong Kong restaurant where we were the only westerners and we weren't really sure what we were ordering! In the afternoon we headed over to Emma's university to collect our big rucksacks that we had left there during our time in Borneo and Bali. It was amazing to be able to put on some fresh clean clothes! Em then took us out for dinner ...

    ... After about half an hour we made a short rest stop and joked about whether or not this was the nice flat path we had intended on following. After consulting the guide book we realised that it was not. We took a vote on whether to re-trace our steps and find the easy path, or just to continue on the current trail, considering that we had just walked up the worst of it. We decided to carry on. The path did flatten out and as we continued, provided ...
