I would have rated the hotel more if it's not for 2 issues I had. But I want to start my review with the positive stuffs, as I do like the hotel and I will return to it. 1. It is very conveniently located next to an MTR station and the airport free shuttle bus do stop at the hotel.... More

I had an overnight stay and wanted to visit the Jade Market and eat at the Temple Street Night Market. Both are very conveniently located near the CityView. The one night Friday night rate was very competitive to other hotels which are in the area. Front desk staff was very efficient and friendly. The room was clean.

Stayed in Cityview during the last week of Jan for 3 nights. First impression is it is very clean and new. Got several good experience since the check-in. Besides a free upgrade to the Premier room, there is a mobile phone - "handy" that is provided by the hotel for me to use throughout my stay. Not only can it... More

This was previously known as The YMCA. Actually, it still is but there is little reference to that and most guests don't even know this. The hotel has a good staff and the rooms are not big but still quite good in such a high-cost city. Previously WiFi was a paid option but I think all of the rooms now... More

Been a loyal patron of cityview for the past 5 years due to the many perks and surprises the hotel offers like free upgrade, wifi, late check-outs up to 2 p.m. Never been disappointed with the cleanliness of their rooms and the freebies such as extra drinking water they willingly provide. They really do their best to accomodate your room... More

The room is clean and tidy. Very good location with the MTR station just one minute walk . Lots of eateries nearby and also a 24 hour convenience store across the road. The free use of a smart phone is really helpful.

Great, as usual. Highly recommended. Room was nice and clean. Hotel staff were helpful and polite. Location is fantastic - few steps to Yau Ma Tei subway station. Restaurant has very good food - their breakfast is a great way to start the day.

Good place for the money you pay. Room is small but provide you with all you need. Good location ideal to explore Hongkong or do shopping. Stuff is helpful and speedy. Did not use the restaurant since there are many nearby.

Our family stayed at The Cityview HK during the Christmas holidays. The location was excellent as there was a MTR station (Yau Ma Tei) exit just a few meters away from the hotel.

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors 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 neighborhood 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 neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
