          Good location and professional attention made our first holiday in HK very comfortable. Loved being on Nathan Rd and within walking distance of Harbour City.

          Very Average, Expensive & Just a Money Grab

          he best point is its location, very close to the harbour, ferry terminal & train MTR. We had a Harbour view room on 9th floor, a front corner room overlooking Nathan street with a view to the Harbour. Room was a decent size for Hong Kong, smallish bathroom but neat & tidy. Breakfast buffet very good with plenty of choice, but prebook for a better deal.
          Overall we found The Kowloon Hotel to be very average and should be much better for the prices you are paying. All the staff were devoid of any expression and gave the impression they were just there to grab your money.

          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


          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


          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


          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.



          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..........


          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 ...


          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


          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 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!!!!


          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


          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


          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.

          Well considering the amount of travelling we have done it was bound to happen. We were due to leave Shanghai at 12.30pm but did not get away until 18.30. Shame as we missed an afternoon in Hong Kong which would have helped to acclimatise ourselves.

          Hong Kong is such a busy place, literally non-stop. We spent five brilliant days there. We stayed in a hotel in Kowloon which was lovely but the rooms were tiny and it was on the 13th floor of a building which looked like a ghetto! The hotel was like a little oasis amid all the chaos. We met Josh from New Zealand in a camera shop and then again on …
