Convenient, lively Wan Chai locale between Central and Causeway Bay

Seasoned travelers do not always require serious luxury. For those seeking a comfortable, convenient and central location in Hong Kong without unnecessary extras, the Empire in Wan Chai is a suitable choice. Within walking distance of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, the hotel is well-placed between Central and Causeway Bay, with the Wan Chai MTR station nearby for easy access to points beyond. Wan Chai nightlife lies just outside the door.

Highlights
  • Convenient, central location in Wan Chai
  • Rooftop pool on the 21st floor
  • Good value
Rooms

With higher ceilings and relatively roomy dimensions, the hotel's rooms have all the usual comforts. Broadband Internet access, flat-screen TV with satellite and cable channels, plus in-room safes come standard. The decor is clean and modern, with glass-topped desks and modular glass shelving. Empire club rooms offer vast amounts of space, with glass-walled bathrooms contributing to the feeling of expansiveness. Some rooms have harbor views.

Features

A newly-renovated lobby greets guests at this centrally-located hotel. Guests can relax with a drink in the lobby lounge, or have a bite of Pacific Rim-inspired Western food at Cafe 33 on Hennessy. For guests in the empire club rooms and suites, the Empire Club Lounge provides a welcoming atmosphere for working or enjoying complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails. The hotel's excellent location is within walking distance to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and Wan Chai MTR station for access to the rest of Hong Kong. Near the hotel, pubs and many local restaurants spice up the area nightlife. A fitness center looks out at the rooftop pool on the 21st floor.

Business as usual

Location was excellent for night life and business. Bathroom was so crammed, even a smaller person would have an issue. Nothing spectacular about the hotel, very basic. The restaurant was in the lower level under the lobby and not very good. Would not recommend eating at their restaurant.

Horrible on so many levels

Online the hotel seemed like any other '4 star' hotel in downtown Hong Kong, we knew the rooms would be small but we didnt know there would be mold, we didn't realize the toilet would only flush every third time and we didn't realize that the main light in the room was going to only work some of the time. We alertted guest services but it was satisfactory to them that they worked sometimes. The elevators do not have safety sensors and I nearly lost my arm one night. DO NOT PLUG YOUR COMPUTER IN TO THE INTERNET!!!! I payed for the service and as soon as I did mine went haywire and destroyed itself with a nasty virus. There were other minor annoyances as well but I feel like these are the overshadowing important things to know about staying at the Empire in Hong Kong Wan Chai. They were also very fussy about holding our bags when we checked in early and when we checked out early. '30 minutes maximum' they told us at the bell desk. This hotel felt like a 2 star... maximum.
