Just when they make improvements on other deficiencies, Empire Hotel in Wanchai finds new ways to suck. To be fair, the hotel is a lot cleaner than last time I was there and the Mainland guests, although still plentiful, are nowhere near as disgusting as they were previously. Elevators and public areas are smoke-free, though the lobby and restaurants can... More

Was in HK for exhibition at HK Convention & exhibition centre. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the venue. Breakfast was good but may need to change their selection (after three breakfast you tend to want something else). Area around the hotel are filled with bars and few nice restaurant and also MRT station all within walking distance.... More

This is as far the worst hotel I have been to. For starter, room especially the bathroom is not clean, stains on the bathroom wall. And there is no heater in the room can be really cold in the winter in Hong Kong. Hotel is by a bar district, window is double layer window, you can feel cold wind just... More

Service was decent by US standards but was terrible by the standards I've experienced in Asia. We actually had to change hotel rooms because the first one smelled like vomit. In hindsight, it most likely was vomit. The hotel is located across the street from a strip of what what can be mildly described as gentlemen's clubs. The girls at... More

Staffs there are unfriendly not helpful as they should be. They won't be able to serve or give any hands at all. I stayed there 3 nights 4days, I didn't get any greetings from anyone. They work like robots not by service mind but the location is convenient to go around not far from the tube & accessible.

Pros: A great hotel in a great area for shopping and night life, the place is very nice and clean also amazing friendly stuff, its just 5 minutes away from the Wan Chai MTR (Metro station) and very easy to access everywhere. Cons: A real slow internet I wish this can be fixed as it was the only bad experience... More

Its a busy hotel that seems favoured by Chinese. The staff didn't seem that friendly. The executive lounge is poorly supplied with a few soft drinks on offer and the nibbles and food is a poor effort. You have to ask them for the wine and beer. The breakfast area was arrange badly and you had to keep going round... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in December 2014. Rooms are very cosy. One of the most comfortable beds I ever slept on. Location is extremely convenient. Choose a high floor or floor away from Hennessy road as there is some noise spill from the traffic. I've stayed here before but they seem to have done extensive renovation. Also due to... More

The room decor was beige and so was our experience of this establishment. Everything from the bedding to the view of crowd-thronged streets to the standard breakfast offerings was average. Most staff tried to be helpful, but unfortunately the male check-in staff member was quite surly and seemed to have received his training at FawltyTowers ! A classic 3 star... More
