Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
First day in hong kong and all i can say is very impressive. This place is so
populated, as you walk through the city streets with high rise towers
everywhere, you realise some of these towers are world glass hotels and
apartment suits, while many others are practically slums with apartments
no bigger than 3m x 3m inside, …
Today we went to an event called "Dialogue in the dark", where you spend around an hour in the dark experiencing what it would feel like to walk across a busy road, go on a boat ride, attend a theatre, go to a bar and order and drink something, walk through the jungle and various other environments only using a walking stick and all your senses …
We were picked up in Shanghai by the same driver & guide - he had the same T shirt and again was not interested in talking to us, only spoke to the driver. He didn't get a tip.
Our flight to Hong Kong was good, but we didn't realize that HK is treated as another country in so far as we had to go through immigration, & customs. We are …
Flight was 30 mins early which was good. Bags 20 mins late off plane, not so good. Transfers to Hotel, booked for 11.45pm, FANTASTIC. And to think just 50m away is the MRT which goes right past our Hotel. How come the travel agent never mentioned that one? Clearly no commission paid. Drive in from airport was uninteresting except for the container …
This time, allow me to take your mind to travel to Hongkong! I left Changi Airport and depart on board Singapore Airlines at 1800 hrs (Singapore time) and arrived safely at Kowloon's Airport at 2113 hrs. I could barely hold onto my excitement. I was looking forward to experiencing the cold weather and most importantly spending my first Christmas …

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Kowloon Hotel Hong Kong
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.
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 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!!!!
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.
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.
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.
