After a take out breakfast from McDonalds which we had in our room sitting at our panoramic window, we took the courtesy bus to Central Pier to get the Star Ferry across to Tsin Sha Tsui, Kowloon to meet up with Nigel, Ping Sinead and Colm. After a dander around the Harbour City shopping centre which is at the pier, we spent some time brousing in …
We were up early to meet our fellow travellers for the tour which we had pre-booked at the Excelsior Hotel on the other side of the Island. It was a pretty grim looking day, overcast and humid. Having got the hotel bus to Central and the MTR to Causeway we spent ages trying to find the hotel! There were about 25 on the tour plus our guide, driver …
Our last day.
After another take out breakfast from McDonalds we checked out of the hotel following a disagreement about what we owed - this all related to the executive lounge package we agreed to on our first night. While settling this dispute we met Jennifer Laird and her Fiancé who had arrived the previous evening on route to …
The Qantas flight to Hong Kong went well. As it wasn't full we were able stretch out over a few seats and get a pretty decent sleep. On arrival we purchased Octopus cards (similar to Oyster cards) $200 each - wer're talking big money now $11 to £1-, and got the airport train to Central where our hotel has a regular shuttle bus. The Traders Hotel is …
Dealing with a bit of jet lag and waiting for Deboer to wake up so I thought I'd start my blog.
Got in kind of late last night. Thankfully there weren't any problems getting through immigration, getting my bags, and getting to the hotel. Everyone here is so professional, maybe it is just because I'm white.
I was standing outside …

Historical Traveler Reviews Traders Hotel, Hong Kong
Had a good stay at this hotel, was a mix up about the room, we were suppose to get a harbour view but instead got upgraded to a king bed but looking at the mountains.
The hotel was nicely appointed neat and clean. Staff were friendly and provided a shuttle bus to the train station on leaving.
Close to the tram and plenty of shops.
Would stay again
This hotel lived up to the Accor brand and was on Hong Kong Island which was where all the activities we wished to engage in were located. Having been to Hong Kong before and stayed in Kowloon, we preferred the much quieter Hong Kong Island for our 2 nights' stay.
Our family of 2 adults/2 children (aged 6 and 7) stayed at the Novotel for 6 nights in two connecting rooms. We paid less for two rooms here than we would have for 1 room with 2 double beds closer to Central or in TST and had the advantage of two bathrooms etc.
Somewhere different next time
the Novotel harbourview is a little out of the way for HK as it's about 20 mins walk to the nearest MTR station (have stayed in Mong Kok before and got to central quicker than from here!). Room was fine and clean and staff were friendly but the laundry service was really expensive for Asia and we ended up paying about £35 UK for some underwear and 2 pairs of jeans and 2-3 t-shirts. Although not a bad hotel for somewhere to sleep, it would be easier to find a cheaper place that would be closer to the mtr for those later nights out, or rely on taxi-cabs. Basically, anywhere you would want to go as a tourist in Hong Kong is at least 20-30 minutes away.
Location:out the way
This hotel, don't get me wrong was fantastic. It had clean rooms and friendly staff. However I felt the name harbourview was a little misleading. It is situated in a more residential area and is not in the tourst area of Hong Kong. A tram line is at the end of the road and it's a cheap way of getting round this city as it only costs 2 dollars for one way (about 16 pence). The pool is nicely situated on the roof and there's a gym.
I reccomend the buffet in the restaurant upstairs if you are interested in trying something new. They had sushi, noodles, a variety of fish , meat and salads.
This hotel is great if you want a base away from the main tourist areas. It's located on a fairly busy, bustling street - like most streets in Hong Kong. It's about a 20 minute walk to the nearest bus terminal, but the hotel runs a free shuttle bus to the bus terminal and ferry terminal anyway, which was fab. You can also catch the shuttle back too! They don't run that regularly, but they seemed to be around when we needed a ride! You can get a timetable from Reception.
