Went there for my stay in HK and was given a complimentary upgrade from superior room (Standard room) to the executive room! The services at the front desk was fairly average, however the services provided by their supervisor, Louisa Hung, is great! Left my items at the disneyland hotel and she helped us to arrange for picked up at a... More

Stayed at this hotel a friend last weekend. Rooms are very clean and the hotel is located 2 minutes away from Yau Ma Tei station, exit A2, which made it very convenient for us to get from the airport and to the city areas for shopping. Staff are extremely friendly and speak English. It helps to download the free TripAdvisor... More

Cityview is very near to the MTR - Yau Ma Tei MTR which makes commuting by train very convenient. Just across the road of the side entrance of the hotel is a small local restaurant that sells nice HK style congee which is not to be missed. A local customer helped my husband and I with the ordering as we... More

City view is situated at a very convenient location. Just next to Yau Ma Tei MTR station and that is the only good thing I have to say about the hotel. The service is so so but the rooms are really dirty! I checked in to their superior room and was disgusted by the size and the cleanliness of the... More

Personally stayed here 3 times for the past 3 years. I have also recommended this hotel to many of my friends who are visiting hongkong for the first time, especially for those who want to walk the streets of mongkok. There are some small local eateries just walking distance from the hotel. I have to give a thumbs up for... More

Very nicely located in the city (Kowloon) and it is very clean and has everything you need. Skip the coffee shop at the lobby and go for a starbucks near by, your wallet will thank you, so will your tastebud. Buy a sim card at any 7-11 and save yourself the wifi headache

The Cityview Hotel is located in Kowloon and is a nice escape in a very busy city. The hotel itself is clean as all the amenities, has a coffee shop located on the ground floor (which is extremely expensive) and as with most hotels has limited free Wi-Fi. The hotel is air-conditioned, a necessity when the temperatures outside between 37... More

Stayed here in mid December 2013 with family. Good location as it is only a 3 minute walk to Yau Ma Tei MTR Station. In Hong Kong, you can easily get to anywhere via the MTR so choose a hotel that is accessible & near a MTR Station. Right across the hotel lobby (along the walking route to YMT station)... More

I have stayed there over 10 times. I recently choose to stay there over some 5-star hotels. The hotel is clean, the room size is not too small in Hong Kong standard. The biggest advantage is its location. It is just a minute walk to subway. The hotel rate is good comparing to other same class hotel. If you book... More

We stayed here for a 3 day stop over on the way back from Europe. I have stayed in Hong Kong 10 or 12 times in a variety of hotels in a variety of price categories. The Cityview sits nicely in the middle. Its rooms are relatively large for Hong Kong. I certainly appreciated that the air conditioning stayed on... More
