Always good. Good to be back Apr 19, 2014
I stayed at the Excelsior for a week at the beginning of April on business. This stay proved to be as good as those in the past. The high standards and good value for money at this hotel be the reason the Excelsior serves flight crew from British Airways, Emirates and other airlines.

The best rooms look directly out to the Causeway Bay Marina and the ever narrowing space between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. However, if you are working from one of these front rooms during the day time, stay alert for the noon day gun. This quaint relic of Hong Kong’s past can be a surprise the first time you hear it fired.

Rooms to the side of the hotel have their windows angled so that you still get some view of the harbour. Both the rooms and bathrooms are generous in size for Hong Kong.

Meals are served in the restaurant on the mezzanine floor. The best seats have views over harbour and there is an excellent breakfast buffet with both western and Chinese foods. Service is friendly and efficient. There is also very good coffee shop on the ground floor serving excellent pastries. Room service is prompt for a large hotel, usually arriving within 15 minutes.

Dickens bar in the basement is a British themed sports bar. At different times the big screens will show English Premier League and other international football, rugby from both northern and southern hemispheres, cricket and, of course, the Hong Kong Sevens. Sports events permitting, there are also live bands.

Whether in Hong Kong for shopping or business, the Excelsior is one of the best located hotels outside of Central District. The nearest MTR station is Causeway Bay and the exit from the station to the hotel is well marked. Close by is the Sogo Department Store and the mall at Times Square. The bars of Wan Chai are within walking distance, but a taxi or the MTR is far more convenient. Next door to the hotel is the World Trade Centre, with both shops and a number of good restaurants on the upper levels.

The gym is well equiped and clean, although there are no windows to the outside world.

While the decoration in the property does show its age in places, the hotel is clean and very well maintained throughout.

A taxi trip back to the in-town check-in at Central Station takes about 10 minutes in good traffic. The hotel also provides shuttle busses to the Airport and to Central Station.

The Excelsior Hong Kong Fitness Centre Apr 24, 2013
I was travelled to hotels with fitness centre in different region. I found that many of those are just to enhance the hotel's portfolio but not really ready to welcome the guest to use it.

But the Fitness Centre of the The Excelsior Hong Kong impressed me with the facilities of the well maintained gym equipments, sauna and stem room also the helpfulness of the centre staffs. Of cause I am compared with the same range and level among the hotels.

Recommend to those frequent work out traveller for this hotel.

Great location and nice interior Nov 11, 2011
This hotel is great and I really liked the in-room decorations. The location is really convenience, close to metro, shopping malls and restaurants all around the place, great views.

However, like most of Hong Kong's hotels, the room is not spacious, and its kind of expensive.
