Business class hotel in a first-class Kowloon locale

The Kowloon Hotel's excellent location makes it a clear choice for travelers who wish to forego the indulgence of neighboring luxury hotels. Near the harborfront, the hotel is well-placed for accessing points in Kowloon and Hong Kong Island via MTR and ferries. Concierge and secretarial services, wireless broadband Internet throughout the hotel and a fully-equipped business center cater to business travelers. Accommodations are modest and contemporary.

Highlights
  • Terrific location set back from the waterfront with immediate access to MTR
  • Walk to Kowloon museums, Tsim Sha Tsui shopping and Star Ferry
  • Wireless Internet access throughout the hotel
Rooms

The property boasts of 736 spacious and elegant rooms with contemporary furnishings, plush amenities and a tranquil ambiance. Angled windows in standard rooms create an airy nook for a desk and work space. Simple, contemporary design matches the modest space of these rooms. High-speed wireless Internet is standard for all rooms. Upgrading to harborview rooms or suites includes entry into the executive club.

Features

Think business class with a top-notch location. Guests who don't mind doing without extraneous luxuries appreciate the comfort and amenities of the Kowloon. For the business traveler, the Harbour Club Lounge on the 17th floor offers executive club benefits in a small, cozy setting with city views. Harbour club rooms and suites also enjoy complimentary in-room Wi-Fi. A buffet breakfast fortifies guests for the day ahead, while the Cantonese and dim sum restaurant, Loong Yat Heen, provides a venue for business meals in private dining rooms. Though the hotel does not have a fitness center or pool, complimentary shuttle service transports guests to a sister property in Hung Hom which has both (fees apply).

Kowloon Hotel - convenient location

I have stayed at this hotel for business several times. The convenience of the hotel is superb. The MTR station is right outside the door and it is within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, etc. The hotel has been renovated since my first stay and the rooms are really nice now. I noticed that some of the lower floors below 7th floor have not been renovated yet. The rooms are not big but they are bigger than other major cities like NYC or Paris and they have everything you would need.

Dont bother about the club floor

Recommend the hotel however not the Harbour Club (executive) floor as rooms and club lounge are built not to western standards of size and very cramped. The actual club lounge is very small with 7 tables to is usually always full and cocktails are in the only bar of the hotel which again is always over crowded. No need to waste your money on the club floor - not worth it. The actual service from individual staff is wonderful and location is great.

Try the Holiday Inn instead

I used to stay at the Hyatt, but they closed it ~3 years ago and tore it down to build a shopping mall. Then I stayed at the Sheraton, but that was too expensive for the start-up I'm at now. The Kowloon Hotel should have been demolished along with the Hyatt had they done it because of the condition of the hotel. The Hyatt was nicer. I've heard the Ho Day Inn is nicer and will try it next time. BTW - $25 for breakfast is robbery!!! Especially when the breakfast is mediocre. Oh... and there were turds in the toilet when I first entered the room.

The Hotel with a heart

The hotel is centrally located right next to 2 subway routes with easy access to everything in the area from malls to Disney to Ocean Park and is 2 blocks off the waterfront with some rooms having a harbor view. There is also a myriad of good, inexpensive places to eat within walking distance and is surrounded with local flavor and is affordable. I enjoyed my stay and will use this hotel again.

The room is very very small and dirty

The room is very very small and run down. The carpet is very dirty. We are forced to pay $30 to "upgrade" to a room with cleaner carpet. This hotel is way over rated. This is in no way a 4 star hotel. I would give it a 2 star max

Unbeatable location for the price

The room is small, only good for one person. The location is perfect though, which makes up for the size of the room. Another convenience for the tourists from the U.S. is that in the room they provide with the jet (outlet) for the plugs for 110 V. You don't need an adaptor for charging your camera battery, cell phone or shaver, etc.

The hotel is located in Tsim Sha Tsui, where you'll find plenty of restaurants, including a good one on the 2nd floor of the hotel. Going out to eat or to shop is easy, as the subway station is right at the corner.
