“Conference Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

All was OK. But there are two issues:
1. the breakfast - very bland and monotonous. It does not consider European taste.
2. the lifts - nightmarish, narrow. You never knew where it would stopped.
in plus: 1. very good location - next to the Victoria Park 2. Outside there is Chinese street

... for a room. Waiting in the lobby (12.50pm) for the official check-in time of 2 pm, along with many, many others. Doesn't seem a very nice or flexible start to the hotel experience. Not cheap either, let's hope the room is more impressive.

The location is fantastic: close enough to Central but far enough away as well. 5 minutes to the Tin Hau metro. Clean, efficient place. Staff is polite and efficient. Can't comment on breakfast as we didn't get it with the room, and would much rather pay for Dim Sum, but it looked ok when we poked our heads in one morning. The rooms are small and not cheap, as per HK. But the beds are tiny. I'm 177cm, and my ankles went over the edge. Just a small peeve.

Stayed here for a conference. The room was a reasonable size for HK and the service very good. The hotel is clean and the breakfast buffet has a good variety of Western and local foods. Cannot comment on value for money as I didn't pay myself :-) As a group booking, we were given access to the business lounge on the 30th floor, which was a nice touch and has fantastic views (and free snacks and drinks).
There is no gym or pool in the hotel, but Victoria Park is 3 minutes away - there is a public pool which is open from 6am to 10pm (although not all times for public swimming). The cost in 19 HKD which seems very reasonable. the only thing is that I couldn't figure out lane etiquette (I think there is none). Ah, culture!
Tin Hau underground station is about 5 minutes away and a trolley bus runs by on King's Rd.
There can be a bit of a wait for the lift at times.

Room Tip: Low floor might be good if you want to have the option of taking the stairs when the lift is slow. O...

Great location and great adequate sized room with a full bathroom with all amenities ! Many convenient stores a hop skip and jump away. A club room on the 30th floor with a great views of Hong Kong and a friendly reception desk. Don't expect a gym or pool. Also there is one restaurant and spa to add but that is it. To stretch your legs or even swim you have to access the fantastic facilities at Victoria Park (just 2 small blocks away). There is a strong chance that I may stay again at this hotel.

Old fashion hotel, smelly rooms and an average service.
The food is not worth to eat in and everything is over priced.
The location is very good however many other alternative places are better.
I wouldn't go back to this place, it has been a while but I had bad memories about.

I love it when you don't expect much & it exceeds your expectations... this was my experience at Empire Hotel in Causeway Bay. First of all, the location is not really in the heart of Causeway Bay, it's actually located in Tin Hau which is one metro stop away. Luckily, the nearest subway station is a brisk one block walk away or you can choose to take a taxi which costs less than HK$20 one way to CWB. The pros about the location is that it's quieter & not as rowdy, but expect to rely on public transport or walk a distance to your destination.

Upon entering the modern & sleek lobby, the staff at the front desk was very friendly & provided quick check-in service which was great after a long days travel. The concierge was able to offer accurate directions & helpful in ordering a taxi the following day when I was in a rush. The room was very spacious, beyond my imagination after staying at so many tiny boutique hotels in my frequent travels to Hong Kong. I read in other reviews about the "magic glass" function & had to test it for myself, what a wonderful design it is! With a switch of a button, you have privacy when/if you need it in the bathroom. Being a 4 star hotel, the necessities were provided such as: robes, slippers, toiletries, safe, laundry service, room service, etc. With 3 elevators & a key card access required to enter your floor, I felt very safe. The modern TV was equipped with games for families traveling with children, as well as, remote access: your bill, the weather, the hotel services. I requested a room on a higher level & got a peek-a-view of the HK harbor in the morning. The breakfast buffet that was included in my package had a very good selection of western & Chinese cuisine. There is also free access to the Empire Lounge on the 30th floor which had an even more spectacular view of Victoria Park & the waterfront, as well as, offer business services & snacks/drinks throughout the day/evening. The hotel has their own promotion & I would like to go back next time to try their spa service which all the high-tech imported equipments they've advertised. WIFI was also included in the rate which is an additional savings! The only drawback I would mention is that the king size bed was a connection of two twins, so it was not the most comfortable as I had to sleep on either side to avoid the center divider.

Overall, I am VERY pleased with my stay at this hotel & would recommend it to travelers who are looking for a reasonably priced hotel with good service on Hong Kong island. BTW, there's a fabulous dessert place around the corner that serves excellent shaved ice & mango tapioca!
