Hong Kong is one of the most vibrant and energetic places in the world. The views around the harbour, especially when looking towards the island are stunning and a must when visiting Hong Kong. To see some pictures of the harbour and other aspects of Hong Kong do take a look at some of our picture galleries on Hong Kong. There is an excellent choice of hotels for travellers to choose from that accommodate every budget and taste.

One choice you will have to make is whether to stay on the island or the mainland. Both are easily accessible whether by Star Ferry, or the MTR, which only take 5 to 10 minutes each and are very reasonably priced. The restaurants and nightlife are excellent on both sides although some would claim that the island has more choice of nightlife. Therefore the choice really boils down to which hotel you wish to stay at, or the view that you would prefer to have. There is no doubt that the view looking from Kowloon side (the mainland) to the Island is best, the most difficulty though will be had on deciding the hotel. Below are the reviews of most major hotels on Kowloon side, in Tsimshatsui, if you would prefer to stay on the island read our reviews of hotels on Hong Kong island.

The Eaton Hotel - Do not let appearances fool you, as from the outside this hotel looks like any other high rise, the lobby is unimpressive, but the rooms are very different and are of the highest quality. The hotel located close to the Jordan MTR (underground) station exit B1, is in a good location for business or leisure travellers. The rooms come in four categories, moderate, superior, deluxe and executive deluxe, and are all very nicely furnished and comfortable with everything that you could need from a hotel. All rooms use duvets, have satellite TV, an electronic in room safe, a large working area with a window view, and the plug sockets above the desk.  They have 5 floors of non smoking rooms, 1 disabled room, a small yet adequate gym, and an outdoor  swimming pool that is heated and built in a Romanesque design. Our favourite room in the hotel and one that we highly recommend is the deluxe, which is built on a corner and has a very large oval bay window that runs from floor to ceiling right around the room, offering you an amazing view and a real sense of space. These rooms finish 01 and 10. The rooms are really quite something. Great choice. See pictures of this hotel, with special rates and more information here.

Peninsula Hotel, Hong Kong - The Grande Dame of Hong Kong, this is THE place to be seen and  stay, if you can afford it. The rooms are very well appointed with televisions in the bathroom, telephones absolutely everywhere with speaker phone so if you do get disturbed whilst in the bathtub hey presto no need to break your neck clambering for the phone. They offer excellent television services with complimentary movies on laser disc that would take at least a couple of months to get through. They have some of the best food and beverage outlets in HK, such as the Felix, which is the trendy bar/restaurant on the top floor of the Hotel, an absolute must, even if you are staying at the hotel you HAVE to go to the toilet at the Felix ! The swimming pool and health club is out of this world, and again the quality of service is outstanding, they will bring you a cold towel, water, and even Browns of London Suntan lotion, to ensure that you don't burn ! The bathroom amenities all come from Browns of London, and there is even two bars of complimentary soap from Tiffany's in your bathroom. As if this were not enough you can arrive in the luxury of a Rolls Royce, to or from the airport for just HK$700 one way or HK$1,200 return this is a nice treat. Just to cap all this off we have to mention the shoe shine service (other hotels please take note). It is for a lot of people an embarrassment to hand over shoes or even ask for them to be done, at the Peninsula, you simply put them in the shoe shine cabinet press a button and before you even knowing it they return cleaned ! Just make sure you book a new wing room with harbour view. Wow. See pictures and check special rates and availability at this hotel.

Regal Airport Hotel - The only airport hotel in Hong Kong

======

Sheraton - Next door to the Peninsula, a great property which also commands great views of the harbour. The rooms are well appointed, and with it being a member of the Starwood group, you will be able to make points, and we all know what points make! While the ceilings throughout the hotel did seem a little low to us, the executive floor is definitely worth trying.

Miramar - not far from the MRT off Nathan road, this hotel offers some great rates from time to time, and is a great option if you are on more of  a budget. They have some good food and beverage outlets here as well.

Nikko - A great property, although one of the older Nikko's in Asia. It stands out because of its famous "Nikko" service. The rooms have very good views of the harbour and it is not too far from the MTR, just a quick taxi ride away. Check special rates and availability at this hotel.

Harbour Plaza - in Hung Hom is a little outside the main TST area, and is accessible directly by boat from Central, Wanchai with the Hung Hom Star Ferry terminal a quick 5 minute walk from the hotel. The rooms are very well appointed with all the modern amenities, and the breakfast is out of this world, serving the best bacon that we have come across in any hotel in Asia. Check special rates and availability at this hotel.

Grand Stanford Inter-Continental - in Tsimshatsui East on Mody Road, too far from the MTR to walk but only a quick 4 minute ride by taxi. The hotel has 5 different categories of (standard) rooms - standard, superior, side harbour, and full harbour, not including the suites and executive floor. The executive floor is very comfortable with a library feel to it, and they serve breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails for a generous three hours from 5-30 to 8-30. A small swimming pool is found on the top floor and is adjacent to a small yet adequate gym that opens from 6 am to 10 pm. Due to the position of the hotel, a full harbour room will actually face a little away from the Wanchai area (the famous view of the HK skyline) so we actually recommend you to take one of the corner rooms, which is actually classified as a side harbour room. The two best rooms in this option are rooms ending in the numbers 34 and 35. These are actually slightly larger than the other rooms as well, but they are also the furthest away from the lifts ! The rooms are well appointed and offer personalised service as you would expect from an Intercontinental, such as a select choice of pillows depending upon your requirements. The television system is very good and this hotel is one of the few hotels in Hong Kong to offer the HBO channel - which means you can watch movies without paying for them ! They also have the standard pay per view movies, and cable and satellite programmes. The suites have separate showers, and amenities from Nina Ricci, Paris. Their food and beverage outlets are tremendous, the Belvedere, which serves modern European cuisine and Mistral, for Italian, are excellent choices. Other outlets, are equally as good, whether it be Chinese, Japanese, or even the coffee shop. Check special rates and availability at this hotel.

Great Eagle Hotel - now the Langham Palace - A beautiful hotel, that really tries to make a difference with the small touches, they offer silent fax machines in the rooms, a choice of pillows, and personalised stationary on the executive floor. Their gym is a site to behold with views over the harbour, and their food and beverage outlets are highly recommended. The service is very good. Check special rates and availability at this hotel.

Inter-Continental Hong Kong - Formerly The Regent Hong Kong - Full review to come soon. 

Royal Plaza Hotel - Located above the Mongkok train station, it is in an excellent location if you are going to be travelling to China by train and being only minutes from the closest MTR station allows easy access into Hong Kong. The hotel has seven different room categories, two floors of executive floor (18 and 19), 2 non smoking floors. Every room has tea and coffee making facilities, and they have cleverly placed there plug sockets above the desk for easy access. Every room also has a safe, and satellite TV. The hotel has 8 disabled rooms available. The swimming pool and gym here are excellent, the gym is large and well equipped and the outdoor pool is one of the longest in Hong Kong. The gym and pool is open from 6:30 to 10:30. The executive floor offers guests the benefits of free local telephone calls, breakfast in the coffee shop, complimentary cocktails and afternoon tea.
