Brilliant location and lovely room :) and for a very reasonable price. The area can be a bit noisy, we were staying when the world cup was on so noisy expats watching the footy in the pubs nearby was a kind of lullaby for us :p Also it is an area where you will see ladies of the night so... More

We were looking for hotels that are in between Central and Causeway Bay area, The Empire fits the bill being in Wan Chai and literally 5 minutes walk away from the MTR station. Get the higher level rooms, Wan Chai area gets rather noisy at night especially on weekends.

Had a 1 night stay at this hotel recently and can say that the biggest factor why I chose this over others in Wan Chai was the great price I secured through the skyscanner search. As it turned out the hotel is in a prefect location if you like to stay close the pubs and clubs for Wan Chai. Literally... More

Well, this is Hong Kong, hotel is in stiff competition, and unfortunately this is a hotel in Hong Kong! It is a straightforward hotel, busy lobby that was basically to have enough space to house enough people, hardly anything else. Room is the typical HK hotel, small but reasonably efficient, the room I have have a glass wall between shower... More

This hotel is a disgrace in every aspect of service, client relations and awful (80s style) accommodation. The first room had a broken safe, so they moved me to an upgraded room. Looked ok at first glance but upon return from diner I found that there were no electric plugs near or behind the work desk! When asking it was... More

Had to wait another 15 minutes of which then the room was ready. Check out was fine and the chap that did my check out... More

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

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
