Overview

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.

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.

Property 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.

HK trip

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 12, 2015
Location is decent, although room wasn't all that clean. Carpets and curtains are probably have not been replaced or cleaned in past decade. this is a not a 4 star hotel more like 1.5. Towels and sheets all had steins on them and even when they were replaced still the same. The place itself is really old. Room was small but decent size. Either stay at Central or Causeway districts.

Would recommend Sun, Sep 6, 2015
Great location in Hong Kong Island, very close to MTR and airport bus. Clean and good size room, friendly staff. I had requested for a non smoking double bed room and got what I asked. Convenient handy phone to use. Overall good experience and will return again.

Hong Kong Whirlwind

Would recommend Tue, Jun 2, 2015
This is a western-style hotel a couple blocks from the nearest MTR/public transit, making it a convenient option for travelers from out of the country like myself. Most importantly, it comes with a free Handy smartphone to use during the stay! No need for a Sim card or international plan - you can make local calls and use any apps (maps or messaging included) without issue! That alone made it worthwhile for me. Beyond that, the hotel was very comortable and had usual western amenities included, such as soap, lotion, shampoo, comb, shaving kit, etc., as well as a few perks like a minibar, free bottled water, and bath robes. The views are also nice - I could see the harbor a bit through my window. The sheets did have a light stain here or there, but overall the room and facility was great for the cost. Wan Chai is a fairly central area on the island, and a few basic stores were nearby if one would need any necessities. I was in Hong Kong for 5 days visiting a friend and stayed here for 3 nights as part of the trip.

Excellently located hotel

Would recommend Thu, Jan 15, 2015
The hotel lies in the heart of the Wanchai district and is excellently located for exploring Hong Kong. The hotel is pleasant and clean but a little outdated and could do with an upgrade.

great hotel

Would recommend Mon, Jan 5, 2015
The hotel was very modern and updates.. Only problem I had was that they had these air fresheners on the floor in the hallways. Other than that, the hotel is in great location, room was a good size and check in was great.

Would recommend Thu, May 1, 2014
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.

Entertainment hint

Excellent night life all around the hotel. Many places to eat, many options.
