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.

Cityview Hotel in Kowloon

This was our first trip to Hong Kong and I found this hotel via a search on the web. I had no basis to judge the hotels there other than price and I was trying to stay below $100 or so. We got the Standard room for $82 and so that fit and I saw some general good reviews so went for it. The hotel ended up being very nice and the staff were very good to us whenever we needed anything. Our only complaint, and this may apply to all hotels in Hong Kong considering the probable need for building space, was the size of the room. We felt like we were in a dorm room and it was very tight. If you can budget for the larger rooms, I think this is a good choice. It has a fantastic location in my opinion. There is an entrance to the MTR just out the side door and this hotel is also on the Airport Express free shuttle line that runs all day. We were readily able to get to the local things that we needed as well as out to Asia World Expo for the Electronics show that I was there for.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Again, the MTR entrance Yau Ma Tei station is out the side door of the hotel. It's probably no more than 50 yards or so, which was great.

City View? Not so much

Staff was mostly friendly and willing to help. Room service was very good. The bed was very hard and the shower was super tiny small. I guess it is an average hotel, maybe 1 or 2 stars.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are in HK and want to go to the Tram up to the Peak, please use Bus service 15C to the Tram service in town. I used 15 thinking that the C was not important. Big mistake. Buses 15 take you straight to the Peak, so no TRAM experience.

Renovated Hotel in Excellent Location

I love Hong Kong. Although it's crowded, it's an incredibly efficient and well planned city with amazing food wherever you go. The CityView (YMCA) was a great value. It was in a central location and only a block from the MTR. The first night we had one of the older rooms, which we were not pleased with. However, the second night we were transferred to a room in the newly renovated tower, and this was excellent. Clean, nice decor, and spacious for Hong Kong. Service was very attentive.
