Recent guest reviews
Well to be honest I would stay here again!! Great value spotless room and a fantastic location!! I thought the single was perfect for one person and I did not feel cramped even though the room was on the smallish side. Room was very well designed. My main problem with this hotel was that the pool was closed and will remain closed till June 2017 at the earliest! I dont like staying at hotel without pools so I was quite disappointed . Had I known the pool was closed I would have stayed ELSEWHERE !! The hotel would have been a great value with the pool and in my opinion was a mediocre value without my ability to go for my daily dip!!!
Wonderful place to stay as everything including train station is a few steps away.
The Salisbury is located at the tip of Kowloon and within striking distance of all of Hong Kongs many amenities.
Elevator is shared with the local YMCA kids & others. Pool belongs to the Y & seems like the hotel borrows it. Fitness center belongs to the Y & there is a daily fee to use their minimal equipment. Bathrooms seems a needing of an update & refresh. It's ok
This hotel is located a “stone’s throw” from the harbor. So, selecting a room with a view of the harbor is a must. My room had a queen bed (which is the largest option available) and this left little room for moving around. As with most things in Hong Kong, space is at a premium. The staff was attentive and professional. Being in Hong Kong, I think they prefer to speak English instead of Chinese, which worked for me, as I am terrible with languages. My companion spoke Chinese, so we were able to handle any situation which arose. Since we were here only a short time, and wanted to explore as much of Hong Kong as possible, we were not able to make use of the hotel’s amenities with the exception of the restaurants.
Though an older hotel, I think the YMCA benefits from this by having larger rooms. A recent remodeling has made them quite on par with more modern hotels. Other than that, it's a great space for a great price in Kowloon — and a great location to boot, depending on what you're doing.
The hotel is very nice, but the location is not convinced for bakery, restaurants and local foods.
We only had a short stay in HK but enjoyed arriving at the The Salisbury - YMCA of Hong Kong after a full day of travelling. Check in went smooth and we were upgraded to a suit with harbor views. It was fantastic. Our expectations were surpassed. We would return to this hotel if we go back to HK. PS: My rating for the amenities don't count as we have had no time to enjoy them. We don't even know what amenities there are.
it is very good hotel. i recommend it. i travelled it. it is very good location. i am not fluent in English.gooooooooooooooooood hotel. the breakfast is very goooooooooooooooooood
Can't better than this in terms of location. Everything is right in walking distance less than few minutes and all the rooms are remodeled so all in mint condition. The cafe on ground level is excellent. And quiet as well. I will definitely go back to this hotel for next trip. Best ever!
We could still enjoy the new year fireworks from the room.
The Salisbury YMCA has perhaps the best location for a hotel in its price range in Hong Kong. It is near the tip of the Kowloon Peninsula, surrounded by far more expensive hotels, close to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Yet being a YMCA, it is a clean, well kept hotel with a very affordable price. It's breakfast is a plentiful buffet with the option of freshly fried eggs or an omelet. Just remember that if you are staying there and arriving by air, the best way to get there is to take the airport express train to Kowloon station and then the free shuttle bus to the hotels, which has a stop in front of the Peninsula Hotel--across the street from the YMCA.
Checkin was friendly and fast; staff very helpful and the location is perfect for seeing Hong Kong. It is on the Kowloon side, but only a few hundred meters from the subway to the Hong Kong side. The room was quite large and modern and the breakfast brunch was huge!
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.
The location is very good and had the view of the harbour.
Near the star ferry and the air shuttle station, we were there for a one day lay over on our way to Vietnam,
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.
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.
This place is a great location in Kowloon, with an excellent view of the harbor and the Hong Kong island skyline.
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.
