I found the Empire fabulous and the best part were the staff, with a special mention to Kamen the Ops Manager, and I can't remember the other gentlemans name at reception maybe John or Paul, they actually made my friend and myself feel like royalty, we were upgraded because of a slight mix up and given a free airport limo...

Stayed at Empire Wan Chai for a couple of nights in March 2015. The rooms are very small, but this is common for many of HK hotels. Good location, but we really suffered from the poor sound isolation, the hotel is located between two busy streets and the noise from the traffic is horrendous, I never have problem sleeping in...

Really good, excellent hotel at a budget rate. It is in the route of the free shuttle from Hong Kong station - where you arrive from the airport - for 80 HK$. It takes 24 minutes from the airport to the HK station in Wanchai, then you take the free shuttle and it takes 15 minutes to arrive to the... More

This is a good hotel. Clean, great value, great location with easy access to subway, trams, buses and ferries. The staff were especially friendly and helpful. There was some street noise, but, hey, this is Hong Kong. If you want a quiet holiday go to the Maldives.

Let start with the positive things: Hotel is located near Wan Chai metro station. And close to all the 'famous' pubs and clubs of the Wan Chair nightlife. Although its near the pubs, I had no problems with the level of noise and did have a good sleep during the night Back to the negative things: The room looked very... More

A very average hotel in a great location. A 3* at best and this is awarded as the location is great. The hotel itself is run down, smelly and poorly ventilated. I asked for a quite room and was woken up all nights long due to traffic and house guests. Wear your shoes as the carpet should have been replaced... More

This place disappointed me very much. The location is amazing. That's where the positive stops. But the room? Ha... Found hair in the bed, hair on the floor, the key slot was broken, and dust all in the bathroom fan. These were the key things. So, I get transferred to another room the last night of my stay.

This hotel is very conveniently located in Wan Chai area. You can reach it via MTR (4 mins walking) or trams (2 mins walking, just across the street). There are many eateries and convenient stores nearby. The hotel facilities and amenities are very standard, but the wifi is good.

Hotels are expensive in Hong Kong. So don't expect a luxurious room at many of the hotels in Hong Kong. Empire hotel is very conveniently located on Hong Kong island. Many eateries around the hotel makes finding a good meal not an issue. Hotel is located near the wan chai MTR station. Causeway Bay, Central, Tsim Tsa Tsui are all... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
