The hotel is super convenient - it's only one tramway trip away from the main hustle and bustle on Hong Kong Island (Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, Central, North Point, etc). The hotel also runs a shuttle in the morning and afternoon. The rooms are always clean and a decent size (considering it is HK). I always have a good stay... More

This is the latest in a long string of visits at The Emperor (Happy Valley) Hotel and it is still a great place to stay. First of all, location. You need to take into account that those who complain that it is "too far" or "inconveniently located" obviously know little about Hong Kong. If you want drunken brawls, bar hopping,... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. Everything was good about the hotel. Clean sheets, room was maintained well. They had a bath tub also, which is usually rare to find in Hong Kong Hotels. Best part was the widow sill. You can sit there and watch the Hong kong streets. Try to take one on something above... More

Very reasonable and clean hotel in the centre of Happy Valley. Excellent staff and fantastic breakfasts for 70HK$ if you bought the voucher the night before with Chinese and Western food, eggs cooked to order and all you could wish for. The hotel is convenient for the trams to Central and Admiralty and Causeway bay. It is out of the... More

We booked this due to the previous positive reviews vs the $ cost per night. My advice is to book somewhere better located even if you have to pay a bit more to save on travel time. Upsides - the staff are nice and efficient; the room was a good size and reasonably quiet. Downsides - It is too far... More

This hotel is a very good hotel. The room was small, but not tiny. The furnishings were older, but not broken. The bed is harder than usual, but I slept well. There was a mini-fridge, which is helpful. When I was checking out, I had to sit downstairs on a couch while they checked the room before they could complete... More

I've been at this hotel a few times and think it is above average for budget hotels in Hong Kong. One thing to consider, though, is the location. There is no MTR stop in Happy Valley so to get to the MTR you need to get a taxi or take a bus. Taxi to the nearest MTR station (Wanchai) is... More
