Stanford Hotel Hong Kong
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
This over night train was the best of four! As half the carriage was all whities we managed to skip the normal 4:00am spitting wake up and get a decent sleep!
The train arrived at the border crossing just before 11:00am. It wasn't free time yet.
Milly lead us through to customs then we were on our own- only for 10 minutes, but …
HONG KONG......So glad to be back. This is definitely one of my favourite cities. I can't begin to describe the difference in people and the culture from Mainland China.
Day 20: We arrived at the Stanford hotel around 2pm after a long journey from Mainland China, including another overnight train (definitely a professional at these now). …
09:23 It's another bright sunny day outside today. I've just woken up properly and see that we're trundling through a city, no idea where though. All the apartments have burglar bars on their windows, although I did notice that in most of the cities come to think of it.
I still don't feel too fantastic today, still a bit sick, and a bit low …
Yesterday was Day 99 of our trip and our last day in Mainland China and yes, it was raining! We spent the best part of the morning getting packed up and sorted out before we headed out. We then went to the Post Office to try and post some bits and pieces home. We were able to send it surface mail and it seemed relatively straight forward so I just …
So after a 2 hour flight delay in Melbourne we finally left for Hong Kong. Upon arrival we met with our bus driver who talked himself out of getting arrested for loitering! when we got to the Stanford Hotel in Mongkok we were so tired that we went straight to bed! The next morning, we were pretty cut to find that market didnt open until midday so …

Historical Traveler Reviews Stanford Hotel Hong Kong
I had only one night in Hong Kong and arrived at 7am and left the next day at 4pm.
We stayed at this hotel in June 2005 at the end of our trip to Asia. We had stayed in some good hotels in some great places, so the Stanford had a lot to compete with. Although it's not a luxury hotel, we enjoyed staying there and would certainly consider staying there again if/when we go back to Hong Kong.
Fantastic tourist hotel
OK - this is only a 2* hotel. The Ritz Carlton it isn't! We stayed here for 4 nights on a tour of Asia. Brilliantly located, friendly staff, clean, safe and secure. If you want to see HK on a reasonable budget then this is the place for you. I work in HK on business and the cost of 1 night at the JW Marriott is the same as 3 nights in this hotel.
You won't have any problems here.
Perfect location for tourist
If given a chance to go back to HONGKONG, I would love to go back to Stanford hotel again&again.Its very acesible to the shopping areas,7-11 and k-mart store,of course NIGHT MARKETS like THE LADIES MARKET is 2 blocks away from the hotel,no need to ride a taxi,near the restaurant especially those PINOYS who loves to eat at YOSHINOYA believe me its just beside the hotel,Mcdonalds is also beside for those tourist who are bringing their children with them,a church nearby and MRT station.The hotel is nice,clean and has friendly staffs. Everything you need is just beside the corner.
We lost our way from Mong Kok MTR to this hotel when we first arrived. Went the other direction - caught up by all the sights and sounds of the bustling city. We even missed a very prominently placed direction card pointing to our hotel in the MTR! The walk from the MTR to the hotel should not take more than 5 minutes, take exit E2. The hotel is also pretty close to the tunnel that connects Hong Kong island and Kowloon, which means cabbing, when you are really tired from all the shopping, would not cost you a bomb. Be prepared to have HK$20 added to your fare for the toll. Additionally, the hotel provides shuttle buses to the airport at $120 per person, alternatively, if you are in a group of 3 or 4, with lots of luggage, you could rent a van to bring you there at $400. The rooms are really not that small (it lacked walking space) - we spent most of our time sprawled on the bed anyway. The inght shift receptionist looked like a hong kong singer from one angle and a malaysian singer from the other - he had a great smile and was really helpful! The furnishings were reasonably clean and well stocked of the expected.
Lovely hotel for great price
We have just spent a week in the Stanford hotel on bed and breakfast basis and couldn't fault it. Our room wasn't the biggest but for a hotel in Hong Kong was more than acceptable. The hotel has a beautiful reception and rooms are comfortably decorated and very clean. We had our sheets changed daily. The hotel is in an ideal location. It is near the main tourist areas but not too near - away from tacky bits. There are loads of nice places to eat nearby and only 5 mins to nearest subway station. If we go back to HK (prob will) we would stay hear again!
Enjoyed the Stanford
Stayed here twice and found it to be well sited and fun to be there. Room was fine, everything worked and it was clean and well cared for.
Great location, near to markets and to Nathan Road.
Restaurants are also nearby, all in all, no problems and very reasonable to stay at.
Will stay again this year if possible.
Cheap Cheerful and Ideal Location
We have now stayed here twice. Not in the most salubrious of surroundings but it is in an excellent location for the markets and underground. Yes the rooms are small but they were clean and adequate - lets face it you are out most of the day. Breakfast was reasonable and the staff helpful. It is cheap and cheerful.
Good location, small room
The room was clean enough, but tiny. Location was good - a couple of blocks away from the Ladies' Market.
Moderate...a little scarry..good location though
For those of you who are used to the U.S. standard of cleanliness, do NOT live here....mildew on walls, cracks, mirrors, everywhere....smells...small...janitors are not professional. Broken toilets, shower heads, not enough lighting in bathrooms... Great view though since it's surrounded by shorter buildings. 1 great thing: you can't beat the location -- in the heart of the best shopping area!
