The Kowloon Hotel

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by Elginah on April 1, 2003

We made our reservations on the Internet, and breakfast was not included. The hotel entrance was crowded by some road work, but taxis, shuttles, and tour buses had no problems driving you to the door. This hotel lies at an angle to busy Nathan Road, though the noise levels were pretty low on the 13th floor.

The lobby was pretty open and the check-in lady was very helpful. There were not that many non-smoking rooms, so we opted for a floor on a high level--hoping for a view.

The room turned out to the smallest hotel room I've ever encountered in my life. It was definitely a room for one. There was hardly any space to hang up clothes, let alone leave one's suitcase lying down. This was a standard-size room.

Otherwise, there were the usual: (tiny) bathroom with freebies, comfortable bed, desk with compact office space (TV/PC with Internet access), refrigerator, kettle with complimentary tea and coffee. The TV was oddly placed--I couldn't lie in bed and watch without an extra pillow.

There was not much of a view, either--just the busy side streets of Tsim Sha Tsui.

All in all, it was okay for a few days, but more of a businessman's room than a vacationer's.
