Fitness buffs and bargain hunters rejoice in the Kowloon Y

Could this be the best value in Hong Kong? You decide. With comfortable, no-frills accommodations in a spectacular location overlooking Victoria Harbour, The Salisbury - YMCA of Hong Kong is ideal for travelers looking to maximize their budget. Neighboring luxury properties charge a premium for this prime location, but the Y offers reasonably-priced comfort for travelers on a budget. Find an excellent fitness center, multiple pools and easy access to public transportation and Hong Kong attractions.

Highlights
  • The best hotel fitness center in all of Hong Kong
  • Excellent value
  • Centrally located in Kowloon near public transport stops and cultural attractions
Rooms
Warm but simple rooms provide all the basic comforts a traveler needs. Expect satellite TV, in-room safe, wired and wireless Internet access and soaking bathtubs. Many rooms feature partial and full harbor views, perfect for viewing the light show at night. Family suites and dormitory accommodations are also available, providing options for backpackers and business travelers.
Features
Fitness buffs will love staying at the YMCA. Find the usual cardiovascular equipment and free weights in the fitness center, times ten (fees apply). A heated, six-lane lap pool welcomes serious swimmers, plus a splash pool and children's pool. Squash courts, indoor climbing walls, sauna and Jacuzzi round out the workout possibilities.

A breakfast buffet is available at The Salisbury - YMCA of Hong Kong, but a bounty of local eateries do brisk business outside. Among the local attractions near the hotel are the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and 1881 Heritage. Though The Salisbury - YMCA of Hong Kong is firmly in the three-star class, little niceties such as a welcome fruit basket and friendly staff make the experience more than basic.

Location, location, location!

Although the YMCA is not one of the cheaper hotels in Kowloon, it can't be faulted for all it offers. It is easily accessible from the airport on the 21A bus route, next door to the prestigious Peninsula hotel! and the Star Ferry is just a stone's throw away. Although some of the floors were being renovated, everything possible had been done to mitigate any inconvenience. The rooms are spacious and very clean in comparison to others in the same area. This was our 3rd visit and each time we have been upgraded and a welcoming fruit basket has been provided. Do not miss the breakfast - it is famous for the meal provided.

overall great

We had a beautiful suite room for which we had received a free upgrade due to original room type being booked. The amenities were really nice, from lovely perfumed cakes of round soap, to a bountiful fruit basket, to coupons for breakfast discounts. We were able to leave our bags with the concierge after check out and pick them up later. The staff really did look askance at us when we returned for our bags and we felt like "bums" or something, but it was ok. We also wanted to exchange money, which the concierge told us to do at the desk, and the desk told us to do outside the hotel for a supposedly better rate at some other hotel- seemed like a "run-around." Aside from this, we loved this hotel, and we highly recommend it as a really, truly nice place at a good value.

Very Pleasant stay at Salisbury YMCA

The hotel location was excellent, airport pickup and drop-off was very convenient, great service by most obliging and knowledgeable staff and comfortable spacious room. The cafe was a bit pricey and would have availed of it more had it been a little less expensive for what was on offer. This hotel is always my first choice in HK.

Delightful

This hotel is a gem. The location is central to everything you'd want to see and do in HK. The staff very helpful and pleasant; the breakfast substantial with good choices; the room clean, quiet and comfortable; the upgrades to the lobby and Mall Cafe fantastic and the convenience of getting to and from the airport an added benefit.

Amazing location at a reasonable price!

We only had one night and a day in Hong Kong, so location was key. This was incredibly convenient to the harbour, shopping and all transport facilities. The room was bigger than we expected, and included a sofa bed, so was perfect for our family of 4! Staff were very helpful and efficient! Definitely not your typical YMCA and highly recommended!

YMCA Hotel in Hong Kong

There is a problem at check-in time. We arrived at 2:30 pm, but there is no empty room. We are requested waiting 1 hour, and they provide room-upgrade to compensate their mistake. After 1 hour, 3:30 pm, we again try to check-in. However, they again request 1 hour delay. Consequestly, we had a check-in at 4:30 pm. I don't understand that situation. We had a reservation before 2 months.
