After a 11 hour flight we have arrived in Hong Kong, with the temperature hovering around 23 degs!

I slept through most of the flight but did manage to rally with the sounds of lunch and dinner trolley! Feeling relatively refreshed I was keen to wonder around Nathan Road but Maddie, only managing an hours sleep put the handbrake on that …

Home, from Yangshuo via Hongkong.

A travel blog entry by ruthbell64 on Nov 18, 2013

Left Yangshuo on 14th Nov. with our driver and guide, Ivy, calling at Xingping en route to Guilin airport, for our one hour flight to Hongkong.
Xingping is a small town not far from Yangshuo, amid the rice growing area, formerly relying totally on farming, but now turning to the tourist trade for its living. A small part of the town retains its …

Day 2 Hong Kong

After thinking we had a very early bus trip for our hong kong island half day tour, the alarm went off at 530 for a 655 bus. We were rushing breakfast as the buffet doesn't start until 630. Half way through scoffing our breakfast down we decided to check what time the bus came. Turns out it was 855 so we hit the breaks and enjoyed the breakfast. …

Day 1 Hong Kong

Plane was delayed 40 minutes, but you could say it was a good thing because we were so tired by the time we took off that falling asleep was easy. We were woken up twice to be fed fairly decent meals. In total we were probably only awake for 2 hours of 8.5, so a game of thrones marathon will have to wait till our next flight. After being worried …

A day in the Cathay

I woke up naturally at 7, had a quick shower and went down to the metro outside my hotel. It was Tokyo style- thousands of people crammed into a few carriages! I made sure that I had not been pick-pocketed and used the free internet after getting off the train.

I surfaced and was struck by the enormous number of elevated walkways betwee...

    Good hotel, great central location

    A very comfortable hotel. We asked for a quiet room and were given one on the 11th floor. It was small but fine for our one night's stay. We were able to keep the room till 4pm the next day, which meant we had could go sightseeing for a few hours, then come back to shower and pack at leisure. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Hotel also within easy reach of the harbour. Modern Art centre, the Space Centre and all the shops on Nathan Road.
    Highly recommended.

    Small room, but we are only here for 3 nights. Position very good in Nathan Street. Metro beneath the building. Free Shuttle bus from airport train to hotel. Shopping ++++ and lots of restaurants all in Nathan St. Night Markets within walking distance. Star ferries 2 block away and they are lovely way to go to Hong Kong Island.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Kowloon Hotel Hong Kong

    Adequate and reasonable

    from

    Good points: the room amenities were fine and we especially apprecaited high-speed internet and wireless hot-spot, both free. The room rate was competitive, about CAD 150 per night all in.

    Not so good: the room was quite compact, and the restaurant was expensive compared to the surrounding area establishments, of which there are many.

    The Best Breakfast Buffet in the World

    from

    Yes, Kowloon hotel has small rooms. It has your basic amenities like coffee pot, TV, curtains, bathroom, bed, closet. It real asian living.

    I need to rave about their breakfast buffet. It is truly the best breakfast buffet in the whole world. They have everything and more. You gotta go have breakfast here even if you are checked in in a different Hong Kong Hotel.

    Advantages? Close to everything, very accessible to the ferrys, taxi, MTR (train). Well, there's Starbucks downstairs.

    Great Location, Clean Rooms, Hospitable Staff

    from

    My husband and I stayed in Hong Kong during Chinese New Year. This is my 5th trip to Hong Kong. The location is excellent, as it's in the hub of Tsim Tsa Tsui, next to Nathan Road which is a very vibrant, touristy area. It's also next to a metro station.

    The staff were very hospitable, very professional and courteous. The rooms are small, but that's Hong Kong! That will give you a feel of how the locals live, since land is a premium there.

    The only drawback for us was that the internet kept crashing. It was being upgraded while we were there, but it didn't have great downloading capacity. But what other hotels give you free internet access?

    Overall, we were happy because of the great location, hospitable staff, and clean rooms.

    Disappointing

    from

    Stayed there in March 2003. The staff and service in general were good and they tried their best. Location is also good, but the rooms are ridiculously small for this class of hotel in HK. We had a "suite"... which turned out to be two small standard rooms connected by a door!

    Rooms are not for normal size people..........

    from

    The hotels location is great, the staff is extremely nice but the rooms are so small that a regular size person will feel claustrophobic. If two are planning to stay in the room it will be a prescription for a divorce. Also, don't spend more money for the higher floors unless you get the harbor view. Last but not least, stay a way from Elegant Custom Tailor shop located at the hotel or you might have to spend your entire time at the shop for constant fittings.

    Disappointed ...

    from

    After staying at the Eaton Hotel, this hotel disappointed us. The rooms are very, very small. Well equiped with TV/Internet and fax. Decor needs improvement. In the Tsim Sha Tsui area, a good location, but you WILL be bothered by tailors. The local calls are not free here. Its sister hotel (Peninsular), across the street is very nice, but you'll pay through the nose for it. Your better bet is to stay at the Eaton; It is cheaper, slightly more spacious, and nicer.

    I think this Location must be Great

    from

    I met a lady who was staying there...she was Far East origin and very classy. A black Mercedes was taking us over to the Airport as the Bus service was off somehow. I think this Hotel would be great at a good price...it is situated not far from the Ferry to Central Area...and it is also in an area with less of the "after 9pm Massage offerers on Nathan Road". Also, it is away from the India men who offer you Tailored suits every 40 yards on Nathan Road...the Golden Mile.

    It is a little farther from that Old HongKong Kowloon area with all the overhead signs and small very real restaurants. But it is not that far.

    Great Hotel with even better Location!!!!

    from

    Just stayed here on my Last trip to Hong Kong for 1 night it is a nice hotel with a wonderful location. You can get anywhere quick from here. The Rooms

    the last person is not kidding when calling them Small!!!! I was a bit shocked when I walked into my Deluxe Harbour View Room on the 17th Floor I think it was 1729 Great view of the Harbour but WOW very small room. It was nice though with a computer in the room which the monitor was also your TV. Nice set up with a safe, Hot Kettle for Tea small Fridge and mini bar. I was lucky and booked my rate with Expedia with tax it came to 147.00 a night which is very cheap for H.K. and this location.

    I would stay there again if I'm traveling solo.

    Great Location

    from

    Located only 3 blocks from the Star Ferry terminal and one block from the subway (both which allows for excellent access to the city)...right on the sought after Nathan Road. Very clean facilities. Prompt service. FREE internet terminals in the room.

    Tiny tiny

    from

    This hotel is part of the Peninsula group. If you are looking for a spacious room, this is not the hotel for you. I was lucky I didn't have a suitcase, or I would have had to leave it outside the door. There isn't much standing room in this cupboard of a hotel room, but if you are a lone traveller or very intimate with your roomie, you might not mind this hotel. Everything else is fine though.
