A decent mid-range, not so expensive hotel well located near the Peak Tram area. Half way between Wan Chai and Lan Kwai Fong nightlife spots. Rooms well appointed and quiet.Can walk into town but taxis are frequent and cheap. Didn't have much to do with the staff - they accomplished what was needed.

Really central location and great value. Rooms are big enough, beds are comfy and the shower was excellent. My only criticism is that there is no central bar area to relax in the evening and check emails.

I have often stayed at The Garden View YWCA and try to stay there each time I visit Hong Kong. The hotel is well situated, being above Central in the mid-levels. It is right next to the botanical gardens, which provide a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The staff are friendly and efficient. The rooms... More

solid 4 out of 5 for this hotel. Even though a bit out of town everything very accesible. Staff are a bit grumpy, but the all other amenities are very good. I paid 215 uk for two nights for a suite, so well worth it

The staffs, including the front desk, did not understand my English. (My English is averaged american accent) so i had to keep explaining things like I do to the kids I teach English to. the house keeping was a nightmare: the maid took one of my cards, presumably assuming that its the key card at the hotel, despite the clear...

After staying in a variety of places on HK island and in Kowloon, my wife and I have decided that this is our permanent home-away-from home. We come to HK from the US to visit my wife's family in North Point. The Garden View is very well situated and convenient. The rooms are efficiently laid out. The staff is exceptionally... More

When we arrived to the hotel, we were greeted with very professional reception staff. The room we stayed in had an awesome view. We saw the whole of Admiralty and Central from the back. It was stunning! The room had HEAT- which is quite rare for a HK hotel but a necessity during the time of our stay. The bedding... More

I have stayed at the Garden View a couple of years ago, and booked again. I think it's worth reviewing again as things can change. This remains a good value option. The rooms are now a little dated in decor but they are a decent size. Double bed not a king bed though. There is a small bath tub as... More

We stayed 3 nights in the hotel. The staff were prompt & efficient. The room was clean and the view was awesome on the 11th floor, especially at night. When we arrived at the hotel, the lobby was full of Chinese New Year decorations and we found it quite lovely to see the kiat kiat oranges. The overall atmosphere was... More

In a city where accommodation is very pricey, The Garden View Hotel is inexpensive. The cost of a room is approx £60 per night for a double room excluding breakfast. It has Wifi free of charge in reception but is charged extra If required in your bedroom, therefor everybody tends to congregate downstairs and as there is limited seating it... More
