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).

Seems expensive for what you get

Rooms are small. Computer in the room wasn't functioning. Minibar prices are expensive. Restaurants were under construction. Breakfast was good but expensive. I remember years ago, it was good value for the money - now it is only adequate.

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.

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.

Definitely would return just for the location, overall cleanliness

1.Extremely busy lobby. Could not fault the location and efficiency though wish they had more 'soul'. 2. No one smiled when I was checking in and even more apparent at Loong Yat Heen where I took a biz associate to lunch. Overall I left with impression the employees did not seem to enjoy working in their hotel. 3.Room was clean but smell of smoking from previous occupants the moment the door was opened. RA quickly sprayed freshener to overcome. 4.Shuttle buses from/to Kowloon station and other hotels stop right in front. MTR access below hotel and also right next door. 5. The room had no luggage rack or coffee table so ended up placing it on the bed and dirtying the linen which was unitentional. 6. Also in this age, to be charged HK130 for 24 hrs of internet on a single device is strange when you can get a prepaid data plan for 3 days use up to 5 devices for $98 from HKCSL retail outlet on Cameron Road. I was fortunate to find a good price under HKD800 for the days I was there in June on a Mon-Wed stay
