Hotel covers all the basics in central Tsim Sha Tsui

Not everyone needs a destination hotel or a room to idle in luxury. For the basics, Empire Hotel Kowloon handily places the traveler in the middle of Tsim Sha Tsui. Local eateries, shopping and street life lie just outside the door. Several MTR stations within walking distance connect guests to Kowloon attractions and beyond. Visit the hotel pool for a quiet swim before retiring to the hotel's comfortable accommodations.

Highlights
  • Swimming pool at the Atrium
  • Central Tsim Sha Tsui location
  • Rooms on high floors have partial harbor and Hong Kong Island views
Rooms
Rooms cover all the basics with modest decor in a minimalist style. A few design touches create space in the rooms, such as windows in the bathrooms. Compactly-sized, the space is ideal for travelers who do not plan to spend much time lingering in their rooms. After a day exploring Kowloon, Hong Kong Island and beyond, guests appreciate the hotel's comfortable beds and simple amenities.
Features
Guests can take advantage of the hotel's central location in Tsim Sha Tsui in endless ways. A variety of dining options, shopping venues and cultural attractions lie just outside. The hotel offers a breakfast buffet, plus broadband Internet access in the rooms and Zino's Bar and Lounge.

Great location, rooms & svc lacking

Fantastic location! Lobby is pretty but not enough seating if you're waiting for people. Staff is not too helpful especially if you don't speak Chinese. They seem to be ready to always say "no" to your requests. Now for the room, although it was relatively clean, they only straightened up and didn't vacuum. I stayed 5 nights and requested sheets to be changed, but could tell they were not. Walls were stained. Shower stall was not cleaned. Shampoo and bath foam were not replaced each day. So if you need more, hide your original stash! Hair dryer was only a hot air hose with no handle, so I had to wrap a face towel around it to be able to use it. TV is mounted high near the ceiling, so the only way to watch is lying in the bed. Pillows are extremely soft and requesting a 2nd one didn't help much. Nevertheless, if you just use the hotel as a pit stop, you can't beat the location for the price!
