We arrived in Hong Kong at 9pm HK time or 1am NZ time. It took us about two hours to get to the hotel....we created havoc at the airport because we stopped to sort out our seats for the Hong Kong to Rome leg of the trip and so were late for the coach. In the end we got the receptionist at the hotel to do it for us. She was amazing, so helpful & …

We were up early today for our half day tour of HK Island. The tour started well enough - we were taken over to HK island and went on the tram up to The Peak, and we really chose the best day - bright sunshine and you could see for miles!

A few pics later and we were off again. This time to Aberdeen (not Scotland) and a boat trip on the …

Well, the airport at Shanghai is one of the quietest airports I have ever seen! Check in and immigration took about 10 minutes, which included two bag checks! We had a nice lunch in a Korean restaurant in the airport (bimbimbap - yum) before heading off for our flight. The flight was slightly delayed, but uneventful and we arrived in HK and were at …

Hong Kong once more

... then another back to the station where we queued for some time and finally boarded the tram. By this stage it was quite dark and we got to view the incredible lights of the skyscrapers and we travelled up and past them until we were at the top looking down on one of the most spectacular views in the world. It has to be line ball between the view over Rio from Sugarloaf Mountain or Corcovado and the view over Hong Kong from Victoria ...

    Good service from the staff, very small room (and that was upgraded). Well placed, excellent breakfast, good cocktails in the evening - all in all would recommend.

    This hotel looked very nice from the entrance and the staff were very good especially the receptionist however the rooms smelled very damp and the smell in the rooms was almost over powering. It was a long way from the main area and we wouldn't choose to stay here again.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Metropark Hotel Kowloon Hong Kong

    Needs upgrading

    from

    The Metropole Hotel is located in Kowloon and some way from the "main" attractions but there are two shuttle buses that run every hour to the nearest subway station (Mong Kok) and near to the Star Ferry.

    A First Time in Hong Kong.

    from

    We [ 2 Seniors ], picked The Metropole because it was slightly out of town. It was a good choice - the rooms were clean, spacious{for two},staff were pleasant & courteous, food OK but we ate out in local restaurants and the shuttle bus served everyone very well to The MTR and TsimShaTsui {Star Ferry}. If we came back to Kowloon we would happily stay here again. With an Octopus Card it's easy to use all forms of transport, i.e. a No 7 bus from outside the hotel takes you to and from Star Ferry at a cost of HK$4.5 about 30pence in English. There are banks { HSBC et al} nearby. All in all a good choice.

    Nice Clean Hotel

    from

    This hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. The food was excellent. We were not able to swim in November, however, we did check the pool area out. It was very nice. Complimetary shuttles to the train stations were nice!

    Good stay for excellent price

    from

    Stayed here for 4 nights which was an ideal base from which to explore Hong Kong. Upon arrival we were upgraded to an executive room, although it seemed quite standard. The staff were curteous and helpfull, the courtesy bus into the kowloon centre ran like clockwork and was extremely usefull to get around. There were pleanty of traditional eateries within walking distance of the hotel as well as night markets which were quieter than the popular tourist ones. All in all it was a great place for the price.

    Not great!

    from

    A bit too dull and far out of of the way although a courtesy bus provided an hourly service to the Star Ferry terminal. Rooms were very small and shabby and quite noisy due to what seemed like paper-thin walls.

    It was cheap but not very cheerful. I wouldn't stay here again.

    Excellent stay (no SARS)

    from

    At the time of our trip, we found the Metropole Hotel had the best rate at $55/night (US) which was unbeatable for this class in HK. After making the booking we did a little research and found out that on the 9th floor was the origin of the SARS virus affecting westerners. At this point there were no refunds. However, this did not discourage us from trying it out and we had an excellent time at the Metropole Hotel. It was cheap and a heck of a lot nicer than most the dumps we stay at. Nobody was staying on the 9th floor of the hotel while we were there as most people were still freaked out by the virus. On a ride on the elevator I stopped at the 9th floor and pushed my girlfriend into the hallway and she has yet to show any signs of repiratory infections.

    An Okay Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Metrople for three nights, November, 2004. It is a serviceable hotel, nothing special, dozens like it all over the world, but, it is hard to see how it rates four stars. The hotel appears somewhat old and is well-maintained (the bedspreads were original issue, but clean), but it doesn't appear that much has been updated. If you remove the few little amenities (shampoo, toothbrush) from the bathroom, you have a plain, three star establishment.

    Small, clean and out of the way

    from

    The lobby is very nice and the rooms are clean by Hong Kong standards.

    However, the beds are extremely small (we had two small twins) and the location is too far from the main road (Nathan Road).

    On the last day, we discovered there were free shuttle buses to Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok. This would have been helpful to know during our stay.

    All in all, good room for the price (it was one of the cheapest we stayed at). However, I would prefer a room closer to Nathan Road.

    Great stay

    from

    Stayed at the Mertropole for 1 week from August 2nd. The hotel itself is on a busy main road but once you get inside the marble lobby with beautiful chandeliers the traffic and hustle and bustle is forgotten. The staff are excellent and will help with any problem. We were upgraded to an excecutive room free of charge. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom spotless. The hotel has free shuttle buses to the Star Ferry and MTR station but we didn't use these as they were always full even up to 20mins before they were due to depart. It is easier and more fun to catch the No 7 bus from opposite the hotel. There is a fantastic cake shop in the lobby which we visited frequently. Drinks, including bottled water are expensive but there is a supermarket just down the road where you can pick up snacks and drinks at a fraction of the price.

    Disappointment

    from

    On the positive, this hotel is located close to almost everything...shopping and transportation are very convenient. The hotel has a shuttle that takes you to the ladies markets, MTR stations, and etc. On the negative, the hotel is far from being a 4 star hotel as it claims. The pictures that I saw in their website is not as it appears. Although the rooms are small (which is OK given that it's Hong Kong), it was extremely old and uncomfortable. Not only are the walls paper thin, the air conditioning works all night even though you've turned it off completely...so bring a warm sweater...because you will need it. And the thing that got me the most was that their standard room is exactly the same as their deluxe room...you're just paying more for it. Although the locations of the hotel is convenient, it is not in the nicest area of Kowloon...very dirty, busy, and polluted.
