This is my 3rd time staying at Kowloon Hotel (over the years) & is still 1 of my favourite hotel in Kowloon area. With Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Exit right outside the hotel & complimentary Airport Express shuttle bus service stopping just across a tiny road facing the hotel entrance. This hotel location is superb for first-timer in Hongkong & tourist here for shopping.
Local eatery/restaurants or fast food are easily available anywhere around the hotel, there are at least 3 supermarkets within 3 to 15mins walk away from the hotel (including drug stores and shopping malls) so accessibility is really convenient.
Room size & facilities:
Rooms may be considered small for those who are used to plenty walking space in hotel room but (as a frequent traveller to Hongkong staying at different hotels) their rooms are of standard Hongkong size (so do expect to see 2 twin bed being places just next to one another instead of away from one another). We had 2 huge luggages in total but we had no problem opening up our luggages at the same time during packing. I was given slightly higher level this time round hence I was enjoying the view from our window checking out the weather at Avenue of Stars or checking out the crowd on the street with Peninsular Hotel just opposite us across the tiny street.
Bathroom was of adequate size with all basic amenities provided like all 4 star hotels would. No direct swimming pool/ fitness centre available within the hotel, but if as a guest, we would be able to access these at YMCA just across the street (with entrance fees of HK180/pax) but hey we were there for holidays so those it didn’t matter to us. (but in case if u need to resume your exercise routine, do take note of the above).
Check-in & Frontdesk:
Do note that reception is usually very crowded with queue during check-in hour. Seats at the lobby may be limited should there be elderly in your party looking for seats during check-in peak hours. As part of the Harbour Plaza Hotels & resort chain, reception staffs at Kowloon Hotel are very much well-trained and maintained their good customer service standard all these years.
Not only was I being greeted by the reception staff for my repeated visit, we were also being greeted warmly by the chamber maid caring after our level whenever we bum into them along the corridor (one of them was even kind enough to remind us of the National Day fireworks display happening that very night and on road closure). Thank you so much for the hospitality.
So….would I visit Kowloon Hotel again despite staying in various kinds of hotels in Hongkong? Of course I would; because of the location and hospitality. Keep up the good work then Kowloon Hotel team.
