“Nice Hotel with affordable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I have stayed in this hotel for 2 months last year. Overall this is very nice hotel with affordable price, especially if you stay long for business will get good deal. The room is big, with very comfortable bed.
Only we should consider about the location, quite far from the city (Harbour City area or Central). And also far from nearest MTR station. But they provide shuttle bus every 30min to Harbour City Area and Hunghom MTR station. But sometimes if you need to hurry, you need to walk about 10 minutes to nearest bus station or take cab if really in hurry.
Overall very nice hotel with affordable price......

The hotel is still brand new, the staffs are friendly and helpful, the facilities are lovely and we love the room so much, very big room and easy to find food around. Generally, it's a great stay for 2 days. I will definitely go back with my family.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I have stayed at the Luxe Manor in Tsim Sha Tsui in the past and have an idea of what to expect from a starred HK Hotel, I am horribly disappointed by the service offered by Harbour Plaza 8 Degrees, rooms are filthy, staff just have the word ' NO' in their mouth. The Management just ignore your basic request. They enter your room even with a sign saying "do not disturb" For the rates they charge for access to the Club Lounge, they provide just a few drinks, At their breakfast buffet they are reluctant to replenish. Do not clean the rooms regularly which are worn out. I would definitely not return to this Hotel and not recommend this Hotel to anybody as they do not even provide the Basics.

Room Tip: Don't book this Hotel, unless you are prepared for a nightmare.

Friendly staff, lovely pool side area on decking (nice for evening drink). Great breakfast but very expensive evening option. We found chef.com noodle bar in adjacent street which was great value. Too far to walk to main shops in Kowloon but shuttle bus on offer. Shower very good, clean room and large queen size bed. Overall good for a 1 night stop.

I recently stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, the hotel itself is quite pleasant, but if your a going to Hong Kong to see the sights, then this isn't the place to stay. This part of Kowloon City isn't a great location for tourists, some distance from the main attractions and there is no metro station nearby.

The breakfasts are good, but quite expensive and the rooms are clean, if a little on the small side.

Be careful if you sign-up for the wifi package, you can ONLY use one device, if you use a second device, there will be a further charge.

The biggest problem with the hotel is the location. It is a fair way out of Kowloon in an area that seems to be popular with motor mechanics. The view from our room was of a Tyre workshop - quite amusing watching watching them change tyres on the road. You need to go into town to find any decent restaurants - not too bad as taxis are very cheap.

The hotel is OK. The rooms are fairly small, but this is Hong Kong. Not impressed with the plastic cups and glasses and this is the first hotel where I have been asked to pay a room deposit before getting the key (Hong Kong $1000)

We had a problem with the extractor fan in the bathroom which would not turn off. We were promised it would be dealt with immediately as it was noisy at night - we stayed two days and it still had not been sorted.

I would only stay if the price was spectacularly low - but even then it would probably be worth spending a little more and getting a better place to stay
