“bit pricey and very busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

the comfort was very nice, the service, food, business lounge - everything is just what you would expect from a five-star in Hong Kong. The only thing that I was turned off by - it reminded me of a busy Park avenue (NY, NY) office building with kind of long wait for an elevator, busy lobby, and restaurants... I guess it's ok if you travel on business, but NOT if you are on your honey moon...

It's the first time stayed in this hotel. I felt immediately like home.
The staffs were polite and helpful.
The room were specious with classic design. It had free wifi and a printer-fax machine in the room - a very useful feature for a business traveller.
Pillows, towels and linen were excellent.
The in-dining service was excellent with variety menu from asian to western style.
It had a corridor to the Pacific Place Mall and Conrad Hotel, very convenient.
It's a reachable location by MTR too (stop at Admiralty - Tsuen Wan Line; via Pacific Place Mall)

Room Tip: Try to have a harbor view.

Stayed there for 2 nights on 30th and 31st Oct.
Nice hotel and had a good room with a nice view.
However, had to wait for 2 hrs for an early checkin although had put in a request for the same at the time of booking. Nevertheless they made up by giving me a good room
Centrally located and most bank buildings in Central Area
Buffet breakfast is quite good
Would recommend

Room Tip: Try for a room at a higher floor

A perfect stay in Hong kong. Friendly reception including some fresh green tea and a basket if fruit. Impeccable standards. Everything I needed had already been considered and was available at a drop of a hat. Delicious food, including my 3am jet lagged wanton noodle soup which arrived in 20 mins. I enjoyed the gym.

I guess most people would expect nothing less of this hotel, but it's reassuring to see that it lives up to its reputation.

Although it has been a while ago ( months not years), I have to say that of all my travels, the Island Shangri La Hotel is one of the best properties I have ever stay at. It is elegant, contemporary, classy, and the service is just unique.
The Club lounge is delighful, with amazing views and endless options of snacks and drinks.
The rooms are spacious and full of every complimentary need; from toiletries to bath robe and slippers, and a fruit selection.
The bed is just so soft.. and you can even choose your pillow from a menu!! How cool is that!
I can not quite recall the name of the restaurant we ate at within the hotel, but I do remeber that the food was delicious and the wine selection superb.
Location wise the hotel is ideally located in the business district, only minutes from the botanic garden, and not far from Victoria Peak.
I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you can spend a little extra, go for the rooms with Harbour view.

Island Shangri-la has been around since early 1990's when I lived in Hong Kong and it was the new kid on the block. Twenty years since and this property still holds it's own with many new competitors. Location is great, on the island close to Central, Wanchai and above a major MTR station. Service is top notch at this property. We do not frequent this hotel as often as we do other Shangri-la properties but the staff treats us as if we are there once a month. Club floor is best in the chain!

Stayed here on a business trip with colleagues. We pre-arranged a hotel car to drive us from the airport to the hotel and upon clearing customs, we were greeted by people who treated us like royalty. They took our bags and took us right to a waitig car. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by name, whisked past the front desk right to our rooms, where somehow, our bags were already brought up. Rooms are very spacious, imaculately clean and the harbour views are awesome. There's no detail too small - from the complimentary bottled water, fresh fruit and candies that were restocked daily, fully stocked fridge and snack area with tea and coffee, to the bathroom where they had a complete set of toiletries just in case you forgot something. No need to call the desk, it was already there. The carpets in the elevators are changed daily with the day of the week on them. This is the level of effort and detail that was evident throughout our stay. The property itself is in a great location that's convenient to just about everything on the island. We found the lobby bar to be a great place to meet and relax and the service was fast and freindly. The concierge was very helpful in pointing out a few "local" attractions within walking distance of the hotel. I've stayed at several hotels in Hong Kong over the years and this is by far my favorite place to stay and I will definately be back.
