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).

Good Location

I was in for a few days for a business meeting and found this hotel highly rated on-line. The rooms were nice, if a bit small. The noise during the day from renovations was quite loud, but expected (i'd read the reviews). It was very well located and the staff very friendly and helpful.

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.

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.

Good Value, Great Location

The Kowloon Hotel was comfortable, clean, and in a great location. The room was small but managable if you are there as a single. The view from the room was a city view. If you want a big spaceous room with a view of the water or city skyline, try the Pennisula Hotel next door....but be prepared to pay considerably more. The beds were comfortable and the desk area great for watching tv or surfing the internet. The bathroom was again small but clean and managable. There was adequate space for hanging clothes. The front dest staff were friendly and helpful. The best thing about the Kowloon Hotel, besides the price, is the location. The Star Ferry terminal is about a 4 minute walk away. A subway entrance is located to the right of the hotel entrance. From this entrance, you can walk underground to catch the MTR or the KCR very easily and comfortably. Everything underground is clean, airconditioned, and traffic free. Walking underground is a great way to walk from Tsim Sha Tsui to Tsim Sha Tsui East and escape the heat, rain, and traffic congestion. Many of the major sights are within easy walking distance of the hotel or the MTR stops. If you like running or walking, the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is nearby, next to the water. From the Promenade, the views of Hong Kong city are fabulous.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

There is an ATM cash machine around the left corner of the hotel entrance. Restaurants are everywhere. Take the Airport Express Train from the airport to Kowloon station. From here, grab the free shuttle bus to/from the hotel. Bus KC3 runs every 15 minutes and has a stop around the left side of the Pennisula Hotel.
