The rooms were in pristine condition, with all the usual hotel amenities. For the money, I thought it was really good. It wasn't a lot more than a higher-end hostel, and it's in a great location--right on the bottom tip of the Kowloon peninsula, in the thick of all the shops and only two minutes from the Star Ferry across to Hong Kong island.
There's a gym there (which costs extra) and a swimming pool (included, with Jacuzzi). There's a restaurant downstairs which you get discount vouchers for, but you're better off stepping out into the throng of other options outside.
I can't vouch for all the rooms, but ours had a great view over the skyline on Hong Kong island.
For a hotel in such a central location, the Salisbury is definitely worth the money.

The hotel location was very convenient to reaching the Star Ferry and shopping on Nathan Street. We had a great view of the river from our window eventhough we weren't paying extra for a Harbour View room. We overlooked the Hong Kong Cultural Center across the street. The skyline of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbor were just beyond it.
Our standard room was painted a pale yellow and not very large, but it was quiet, comfortable and clean and included a TV, air conditioning, mini-bar and coffee maker. The hotel also offered several sports and recreational options with its 2 pools, jacuzzi, sauna, fitness center, squash courts, climbing wall, dance studio, shops and tour activities desk. It is also child friendly and offers baby-sitting service and has a children's library.
