A comfortable stay in Yau Ma Tei, downtown Kowloon

The Cityview offers much to recommend beyond the hotel's advantageous location in the downtown Kowloon area. This value-for-money hotel is located next to the Yau Ma Tei MTR station, which makes all of Hong Kong a subway ride away. Nearby, the shopping on Nathan Road and Ladies' Market works up an appetite for sampling the specialties at many local restaurants. Hotel rooms upgraded with basic contemporary style. The hotel is also within convenient access to hong Kong destinations like Electrical Appliance Street, Computer Centre, and Chinese Opera Theatre.

Highlights
  • Near Nathan Road and Ladies' Market
  • Convenient Yau Ma Tei locale
Rooms

All 422 rooms and suites include kettle, fridge, broadband Internet access (fees apply) and in-room safe. Accommodations are cozy and practical for the most part, although executive rooms step up the style with bold stripes and colorful artwork brightening the more spacious, contemporary rooms. Rain showers put the spa experience into guest rooms, while generous desk space and in-room Wi-Fi facilitate business after-hours. 

Features

Three restaurants meet the dining needs of guests. City Cafe serves a buffet from breakfast to dinner, while The Atrium provides an atmospheric lounge for wine and beer with sandwiches and appealing snacks. The Balcony serves delicious, traditional dim sum.

Corporate guests can make use of the contemporary ballrooms for conference and banquet events.

Nice Hotel for this trip was good value, clean place, helpful staff, large room compared to other HK hotels. Internet gave a little trouble second day working slow. When their IT guy could not fix it, they called their service provider and was working properly the next time I went on line.

Great business stay

Overall, the location of this hotel is superb. Just a minute away from the MTR station. The room size is just slightly above typical HK hotel room size. Don't expect much amenities within the hotel, and they charge for breakfast. But restaurants and food shops are just nearby. Overall, the stay is good, and they have smoking rooms.

Comfortable room, spacious for HK

Stayed for 14 nights in a twin bed room with shower, very comfy, aircon good, tv fine. Fridge included, though no minibar, so buy your own drinks across the road at Circle K. Close to Yau Ma Tei MTR station and buses on Nathan Rd, very good for shopping and eating, with easy access to airport bus A21. Staff good, especially nice maids who did a terrific job preparing my room on the 15/F. Concierge very helpful too.

Older hotel but nice - genuine 4*

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms feel a bit old and worn, however, it's otherwise a very nice hotel. Our room, which might have been an upgrade to a premier room, was relatively large for Hong Kong. Everything worked just fine, including the free internet. The staff were nice. The most important thing is that the location is great. It's right next to the metro, the airport bus line, and the airport express bus stop. There are some pedestrian streets with night markets nearby.

Close to metro stop and lots of shopping.

The rooms are little and beds are ok, but it's pretty similar to any other hotel at this price point. If you can afford to pay more and want to stay in a nicer room you can always spend double or triple. At the cityview, you get what you pay for, but the location makes it cheap and easy to get around. You can walk to lots of shopping and restaurants from the hotel, and there is a 7-eleven across the street from the entrance.

The BKK worm

Love the location. Down the street there are subways (two lines), bus stations to go to many places including the airport. of course taxi's. Short walk to the MongKok shopping streets. The room is clean, quiet and simple. The beds are comfortable. The price is high, but this is HK.

Perfect location

Just the hotel is very old. Everything about it is old. Smelly and stained carpets. Pretty beat up bathroom. You can beat the location though. it's right off the Yau Ma Tei MTR. If you take the airport express, take the K5 line and it's the first stop.
