The Harbourview Hotel Hong Kong Reviews
Nice business hotel with a killer VIEW!!! Apr 30, 2010
I stayed at The Harbourview for 3 nights during my trip to Hong Kong in late April/May 2010.
Initially I had planned to stay there an additional 3 nights, but I had to cancel the reservation because I couldn't get a flight due to the Volcano situation in Iceland.
I picked this hotel because of its central location on Hong Kong Island and most of all - the wonderful harbour view!
There aren't so many hotels in Hong Kong which offer a nice view. Most affordable hotels are surrounded by high apartment buildings, so usually you will only see filthy concrete walls with hundreds of air conditions... ;-)
Due to its location near the HK Convention Center, The Harbourview is a typical 4 star business hotel - at least on weekdays. Rates are as high as 1200-1300 HKD then, but will be much cheaper from Friday to Sunday, so you can score a room from 600 HKD, or 700 if you book a room with harbour view.
I really liked this hotel! It offers nice and clean rooms, equipped with minibar, a giant in-room safe, water kettle, complimentary water and coffee, power adapter, hair dryer, TV.
The air condition worked very smoothly, so I could leave it switched on during the night without getting blown out of the bed ;-)
Ok, the room is not that big, the beds way too short for a tall guy like me, and the TV isn't a flat screen...
But all things considered, I felt very comfortable at that place. It's sooo cool to see the tall buildings in TST from your bed at night!
Location is quite nice, too.
It's not exactly very close to the next MTR station, but it's just a 5-10 min walk.
Bus stop for the A12 Cityflyer is just a few meters away. The Wan Chai ferry pier is also very close.
The Wan Chai entertainment area with all sorts of bars, pubs and restaurants is nearby.
Would I stay there again? Definitely!
Check out the room rates at the weekend! It's a bargain! :-)
