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.

Well located no frills hotel

The hotel was clean although the rooms were small, but this probably expected of a downtown Hong Kong hotel. Very conveniently located near the metro which makes getting around a breeze. Rooms were freezing with no heating so make sure you request for an extra blanket if you go in winter. Breakfast was great.

Hong Kong hotel

I was given the smallest room with a temperature that was so frigid that no human could live in it. When I asked for repair, the housemaid who didn't speak English, came in and turned off the thermostat and fan as though that was the repair. I finally got a room, much better, and everything worked. They really need to work on customer service otherwise they make you feel as though you are a real bother to them. Very rude in general similar to other comments in this space. Location is great.

broken air, hard beds, boogers on the walls and door

The room they show inthe picture is not the room you will get. They tried to give me a dingey old dirty room but I put up a fuss. So they moved us to the newly remodeled side. The bed was hard as a board, there were boogers on the door and walls, and the AC was broken. I stayed one night and checked out early for another hotel. I strongly discourage anyone from staying here. Its an old YMCA. And heres another piece of advice. When booking Hong Kong, count on spending about $300 per night and only book 5 star hotels. Otherwise your going to get a dump.

Check in time policy is bad..

Arrived at 1:30 a/m on the 1st of Jun, but was allowed to check in until later in the day...I had to wait in the lobby until their normal time to check in on the 1st of June. Once I got a room it was what I had requested..but my flt out on HK was at 1 a/m on the 5th of Jun, but I had to check out on the 4th of Jun at 1 p/m. They allowed me one hour late check out...so I had to kill time in the lobby again and late at the HK airport. They were not flexible on my travel time table...which I was unable to control.

Happy In Hong Kong

The Check-in was painless. The room was clean, and they were all more than helpful in lobby area. I checked in very late and they provided great help in obtaining a shuttle to the airport. It is nicely located to the Hospital and McDonalds

Service in the lobby was always present and ready to assist. Twice, the room was cleaned even with the "Do Not Disturb" sign posted. Infrastructure of room is outdated: Shower stall not adjustable, sink had poor flow. Location was within 50 feet walk of MTR station which is extremely convenient. Also, free shuttle to the Kowloon MTR station for Airport Express ride back to the airport.

Good for a couple of nights

Booked this hotel for a few nights while sightseeing in Hong Kong. This hotel is right next to Yau Ma Tei stop and there is a free bus service between the hotel and Kowloon station if you use the airport express train service to get to downtown from the airport. Although Kowloon is a little grungy, it is easy to get from here to wherever you need to go and is more affordable than Hong Kong island (only takes 10/15 minutes to get to Hong Kong/Central station). Rooms are nothing special, but are clean and sufficient for a few days especially if you are using it as a place to crash. There is also a fitness center, but it is basically access to the YMCA adjacent to the hotel. I used it once and it had decent equipment and the pool looked ok as well although I didn't use it. Drawback is you are subject to the YMCA's operating hours for usage. All in all, Cityview is a fairly good value for the money.
