“Stylish, well designed Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

Located 20 mins on the MTR from Central, East is a well designed stylish hotel which
markets itself as a business hotel but would be good for tourists also.
Reception was friendly and efficient. My ‘urban view’ room was cleverly thought
out, with one wall of windows, a desk, integrated en-suite and an espresso machine; it
could however have been cleaner.
There is a restaurant on the first floor which served great fusion food in the evening
and an excellent breakfast buffet.
On the roof is an amazing, trendy bar with fantastic views of Kowloon and the
harbour.

The hotel claims to be a boutique hotel - this seems to catch all phrase when things are done differently - staff in a casual uniform, toilets without doors (single rooms), room service in paper bags..... The service was excellent - very attentive and friendly staff. Spotless hotel, excellent amenities, a bed that was just right, not too soft/hard. TV choice was not very good with channels mainly in Chinese. Adequate plug points and lighting, fast internet service. Toilet with no door took some getting used to, didn't particularly like it. The shower was messy - again no door or curtain. Room service food was delicious, though I did not like eating out of an "eco-friendly" paper bag. Roof top bar has a fantastic view and relaxing ambiance. One coffee shop and no other restaurant. All in all I liked the hotel mainly because of the staff.

The first word that came to me as I walked in was ".. this place's got character .."

All the positives that have been mentioned about EAST are true. This is the hotel to stay when you are in the vicinity.

Spent 3 nights here as my office is in the Taikooshing area so it was very convenient for me. After the Airport Express train, I walked over to Island Line of the MTR and took the subway directly to Taikoo station, walked to exit D1 and EAST is right in front of the exit! I had some trouble finding the hotel at first because there were no signs indicating where East was when you come out of the exit but luckily Janice at the front desk gave me excellent directions over the phone and I was soon checking in. A big thank you to her for her professionalism and service during the check in process and she was also very helpful in providing directions in the surrounding areas. EAST is located right smack next to Cityplaza which will satisfy all your shopping demands. Sugar bar on the 32nd floor is a must see if you are in the area as the view over the harbor at night is quite intoxicating! Another shout out to Tweety, I think that's the name of my server in Sugar, who was so friendly and professional in her service, that it was easy to feel relaxed here. So kudos to EAST for having inculcated such warm and friendly service to their people. Will definitely stay here again, but ask for a harbor facing room next time!

Cannot spot the location as it's right next to the Metro- Very trendy and chic hotel with very very comfortable beds and a nice view of Hong King @ Night. The breakfast buffet was exceptional with fresh juices (Red Berry, Kiwi Fruit), Croissants etc. I also visited the Sky Lounge and the view from there was real good. Not much to do in Tai Koo except that of a mall and a couple of restaurants but since the metro was literally next door, commuting was smooth. The rooms were very tidy and also had an Ipod for music. The bathroom and shower was extremely satisfactory. I highly recommend- The EAST, HONG KONG.

We travelled with two small children even tho East is a business hotel, the staff are super friendly and super efficient. Excellent location at Tai Koo since you can really find just about everything there in the mall. Staff are all dressed in the smart casual uniform which is the same style as hotel - new, modern, comfortable and efficient. The hotel room is a bit small but this is Hong Kong, can't expect too spacey. One thing is hotel room facing all the residentials, if you don't mind the "closiness", actually it worked out pretty well. Try to get rooms on the mall side, which is room starts with 01, 02 instead of the 08, 10. That side seems spacier not facing direclty into someone's home. Glad to stay there last time, will definitely do so again in the future.

Stayed there twice in December on business. Hotel is located near my office though not in the central CBD. It is very convenient to travel by the subway that is right next to the hotel. A hugh shopping mall with lot of retaurants and shops also next to the Hotel. Room is bright, fresh and clean. I like the ipod in the room and the Sugar Bar at the penthouse. Beware of the writing table edges, it is a bit sharp.
