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.

great hotel

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.

Convenient Location for HK Hotel

Location is this hotel's best asset, easily reachable by MTR, Trams, and Taxi, and walkable to Central and Wan Chai. I think the hotel has been upgraded with some changes in the lobby area, but in my opinion its all cosmetics. The service is OK, but not great, the rooms are functional, but mostly on the small side and by no means luxurious. However, for the value, I would recommend this hotel. I have also noticed that the majority of the clients at this hotel seem to be from Mainland China, so the social conduct in the public areas, including the lobby, might take a bit of getting used to, (if one is not familiar with how people behave in Mainland China !)

Great location

Great location outside the main tourists streams but close to all kinds of transportations (two MTR stations, ferry, tramway and busses). Wan Chai is has also more traditional parts of small town Chinese quarters that give a special flair.
