... vastly expensive pleasure boats for the millionaires who live in HK, past the huge Jumbo floating Chinese restaurant and into the floating village. This is basically where the fishing community live, on the harbour on tiny boats containing all their worldly possessions - they then board other big boats to go out in the South China sea catching fish for most of the year.

We are staying at a lovely hotel right on the water and found an Italian restaurant next door. The lights look lovely reflected across the harbour and there was a short laser show.
Lots of joggers and walkers with cute fluffy dogs.
Tomorrow- shopping!!!

Smack bang in the middle of the city it takes your breath away plus the atmosphere is electric. Millions of dollars go through on each race and the tote is shown on giant screens.

... and mammals that call China home.

We cruised around Hong Kong Island for a bit, before taking the subway back to the Kowloon area. We walked a bit more before stopping for some food at Murphy's Irish pub. We have been doing quite a bit of "western" eating the last couple days, as we will have no choice coming in the next couple days, so we figured we better get our fill now.

The night skyline here is spectacular, we have never witnessed such a site ...

I fall asleep on my first flight to Seoul and I wake up alone and wonder why Rachel isn't in the seat next to me. I then remember she's not with me and my heart breaks. She has been an amazing travel partner and there is no one I would have ...

    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.

    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.

    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.
