The location is right in the middle of things. Many western and eastern restaurants within walking distance. Public transportation is close by. However the rooms are really tiny. The front desk staff arranged a breakfast to go because of our early check out time, that was nice, The place is pretty old but well kept. A free smart phone with... More

After looking at various hotels, we decided to stay at The Cityview again this trip due to its location, and proximity to a lot of food and the Yau Ma Tei MTR station, especially with a toddler as we envisioned having to go back to the hotel earlier than we would. They also have free airport express shuttle to Kowloon... More

It was my first time to check in this hotel, overall it was at par or better to what you would expect from a hotel of the same rating in HK. Location was great, it was very accessible and convenient.

Check in took a little time and I was briefly in my room. I must say on Hong Kong standards the room is a good size, well decorated everything as expected.

Well situated next to Yai Ma Tei MTR. Quite quiet as well for a big city... My room overlooked a school and a church. I got upgraded into a twin bed suite which was just fine for me.

The hotel has great location as it is near the MTR station. Room is clean and nice. house keeping always does a great job and staff are friendly. Their customer service was also helpful as I got a problem with my credit card when I was booking, they still manage to accommodate me.

The hotel is a very short walk away from Exit D of Yau Ma Tei MTR. Helpful staff, room was great. Our room had a free complimentary smartphone service with internet which was a giant help since my own phone had no connectivity in HK. A 7-11 and a number of restaurants are nearby.

We stayed in a premier triple room - which was really a twin room with a (fairly comfortable) sofa bed. We didn't have much luggage, otherwise the space is a bit tight.

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
