Historical Traveler Reviews The Park Lane Hong Kong
I cannot stress how much I enjoyed my stay at the Park Lane. First of all, I love Hong Kong and have always has a tremendous time every time I have visited. Causeway Bay is probably my favorite neighborhood because it all seems so alive all the time (though if I were to live in Hong Kong, I would probably live in another neighborhood, but that is another matter altogether). My stay at the Park Lane was perfect. If you like Causeway Bay, the location is very very central to everything. It's literally about 3 or 4 blocks from the MTR station. I had reserved and paid for a "city-view" room online at the lowest price I could find, but when I checked in, they said that they could offer me a "harbor view" (costlier) room for no extra charge. The view from this room was so good. It's a view of Victoria Park, which is pretty, and part of Victoria Harbor. But, at night time, just something about all the city buildings in the background (North Point?) is just indescribable (even though the buildings you will be looking at are not the most famous in the Hong Kong skyline - the overall effect is wonderful). Also, I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but the muzak, that is, the hotel music that plays on their TV's when you turn to a hotel "in-house" (advertisement) channel is so so good. Very nice to listen to and very soothing. Turn off the lights, pull a chair up to the window, sit back, have a drink and enjoy the view that I hope will never change. It's a wonderful hotel and Hong Kong is a wonderful city.
Nice place, but a problem with noise
I am writing this from the lobby of the Park Lane, on the last day of a 4 day stay. I agree with the other reviews that this is a quality hotel. I have been on the 23rd floor, which is recently remodeled. The room is spacious and comfortable. The bed, linens, pillows excellent and very comfortable. The AC system is better than most, and quiet. The staff is friendly.
The bathroom is a bit cramped, but clean and perfectly acceptable.
The only major problem has been noise from neighboring rooms. There are nice big LCD televisions mounted on the walls. But the insulation between rooms is not effective. For two nights in a row, I have had to call numerous times down to the front desk to have neighbors turn down their TVs after midnight. I could hear CNN clearly in my room while trying to sleep. The first night they did not succeed in getting the problem fixed, and the noise kept me up until it was turned off around 6 am! Second night it took them an hour, and probably would not have fixed it had I not called several times. They kept telling me they could not hear the noise in the hall. They were correct. The way the rooms are designed, the doors block sound well, much better than the barrier between rooms. Eventually I had to invite them into my room, and they immediately realized the problem.
There is a small exercise room, but they charge HK$70 to use it - a bit steep for a modest facility.
They told me that I had to plug my laptop in to use the internet, for a hefty fee. But I found my room and some other locations in the hotel have wireless without a fee.
The location of the hotel is good, and it is easy to get to from the airport - just take the free shuttle from the train.
Overall, I would consider staying again, but the noise problem really detracted from the experience. I would probably try the Excelsior - only a couple minutes away by foot.
Dropped into Hong Kong and alighted at the Park Lane Hotel adjacent to Victoria Park. Splended atmosphere in the tradition of fine hotels. Impressive.
Thoroughly enjoyed the property itself, especially the proximity to the park, where the morning Tai Ji practitioners are busy improving their forms.
Loved the hotel, especially the fact that a contemporary and small market is right around the corner with virtually everything you forgot to bring or anything you need.
Stayed 5 days for a conference. Initially disappointed because it was not rated as 5 star BUT the service and quality definitely exceeded 5 stars.
Great rooftop restaurant. Lunch buffet wasexcellent. Buffet breakfast was also very good.
Certainly better than many 5 star hotels I have stayed.
Hong Kong Heaven
We stayed at the Park Lane as part of our honeymoon in October 2004. The hotel was lovely - from the minute we walked in we were greeted with friendly, courteous staff who couldn't do enough to help us.
We had room service breakfast each morning (we were honeymooning after all!) which was delicious. The choice was fantastic and good value for money. Hong Kong is such a busy place that at the end of the evening we were pleased to have a drink in the hotel's bar. They have a happy hour each evening which offers better value for money but you are so close lots of restaurants and bars that the choice is endless.
We visited the Woodstone restaurant twice which is just round the corner from the hotel and offers gorgeous food and wine in cosy, intimate surroundings. Baby Blue is also a great bar close by with a huge cocktail list and gives you a chance to mix with non tourists!
We'd certainly recommend a visit to Stanley market - not so much for the tacky fake goods but for the beautiful ornate chinese kimonos and traditional fayre. We took the bus there which was very cheap and easy to use.
The Park Lane is a great base for exploring Hong Kong - from Victoria Heights to the designer shops and local markets you'll find it all in this amazing city.
Great hotel with great views
I stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of November 2004 and had a great time. The location was convenient, very close to the MTR. The (Superior) room was spacious, facilities good, bed comfortable and lovely views of the park and harbour. The breakfast buffet was pretty good with lots of choice. I would definitely stay at the Park Lane again.
Great Location, great hotel
I stayed in the Park Lane on a short trip last year and all my expectations were met. Great location due to its proximity to shops (department stores and street shops) and numerous MTR stations. If you're lucky you'll get a room facing Victoria Park (you see the Harbour as well). The staff and service were great and I enjoyed the daily breakfast buffet. I'm very partial to staying in Causeway Bay because I used to live there several years ago and know the place very well. However, I think a first timer would enjoy this neighborhood as well. Lots of activity, as well as great places to shop and to eat.
Great hotel in a great location.
Great hotel! Wouldn't hesistate in recommending it. We booked a deluxe harbour view room which had the most amazing views over the park and Hong Kong harbour. Great to wake up to. The room itself was spacious, clean and had comfy beds. Marble bathroom, large wardrobe and plenty of storage space. Air con was quiet and overall we spent a very peaceful 5 nights here. View from restaurant was impressive at night although the drinks were a bit pricey. The bar downstairs had a happy hour though! Location couldn't be faulted. The MTR was just round the corner, the hotel is right in the heart of the shopping district, and Victoria Park is opposite the hotel if you want to get away from the bustle. Enjoy!
I have just recently stayed in this hotel for 4 nights during August 2004. It is about an hour from the airport by road, with great views of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island during the journey.
The hotel is located at the far end of the bay on Hong Kong Island and has faboulous views of Victoria Park and the harbour. It is very interesting watching some of the activies that go on in the park, especially first thing in the morning. Up on one of the top floors there is a great bar that has stunning views in several directions and is well worth a visit both in the day and at night.
The rooms are very simple, clean and have very comfortable beds with plently of storage space. In the lobby there is an area to have a coffee etc, and also a brasserie/bar joined to the hotel - a bit pricey but great for a last drink before bed!
The location of the hotel is fantastic, a couple of minutes walk to the metro, close to Starbuck's etc for breakfast and located right on the edge of a large, modern shopping district. After visiting both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon I was really pleased that I had stayed on Hong Kong Island at this hotel - primarily because of its views and location.

... to get from Macau to Hong Kong (Kowloon, not Hong Kong Island) so we bought them. The departure was scheduled for 10.00. It was a real speedboat so the journey lasted only one hour. There were big waves which caused that my dad and I felt very dizzy. We made it without throwing up but at a certain point it was quite challenging.
Once we landed at the ferry terminal of Kowloon we could easily walk from the harbor to the Chung King Mansion which was supposed to be our ...

At the same time we looked on the map for the other place and saw that it was down the one alleyway that we decided not to go down because it looked like a parking lot for the apartment building beside it. Lesson learned, when desperate, check every possible place! We headed out again for dinner and were successful this time in finding the place. The food was delicious and we weren't shy about taking them up on their “all you can ...
... whether home or continuing their adventures, the rest of us continued ours by taking pictures beside the Olympic torch housed on the pier from Beijing, and eventually arriving to the peak ready to climb to the top.
The Hong Kong peak is on the island requiring a short, though very bumpy ferry across the lake. If you are seasick-prone, do not underestimate this 20-minute ride. I was so sick and required water and 2 tablets to recover. Once off the ferry, there is ...
... peak (in the coach, of course) and across the island to Aberdeen fishing village, where a sampan ride showed a dying industry, pushed out by luxury yachts and over-fishing in the harbour. From there to Stanley, an upscale seaside village with restaurants and bars along the promenade and a delicately manicured beach. Peaceful and unusually under-populated, it was lovely, but could have been anywhere on the Northern Mediterranean coast. Back to the hotel and ...
