“Super Establishment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We had four nights here in early March ... our first trip to HK .... we stayed here to meet friends at the end of their trip as bit of a surprise ... everything was new to us .... we opted for a Club Room with access all day including breakfast, afternoon tea, canapés and evening drinks.

The room was excellent with views to wards HK and the old airport and the harbour .... the Club was busy each day - the food was really good and the service was attentive .... without exception the staff were excellent and helped us with our may queries.

The shuttle bus was invaluable in getting in to town ... its only a 6 minute ride but due to construction on the way you cant walk along the promenade all the way in.

Next time we are in HL we will say here again.

We used this hotel as a stopover on the way to Sydney and were absolutely delighted with it. If you can, go for the Harbour View Club room, you will love the view but more importantly the perks of having a club room. This gives you access to the club lounge ,where you can take coffee throughout the day and take advantage of complimentary afternoon tea and pre dinner snacks and wine. These both were fantastic with a wide range of food available, so much so that if you'd eaten breakfast, taken afternoon tea and pre-dinner snacks you probably wouldn't need to eat anything more. Breakfast was very good with a large range of European and Asian food on offer.
The hotel has several restaurants ,offering a range of styles of cooking.The hotel is a little out of the way but the regular free shuttle bus is reliable and quick.
I would highly recommend this hotel and will certainly use it again.

Room Tip: Use the club lounge.

Stayed March 2013 for four nights. This hotel is a classic example of the high quality travellers should expect from Hong Kong hotels - the foyer, restaurant and lobby areas are spectacular and harbour view rooms excellent. The location in Whampoa is a little distance from the Nathan Street and Tsim Sha Tsui shopping areas but the harbourside is very much harbourside - there is just a pavement between you and the water. The hotel offers a regular free shuttle to Hung Hom, Tsim Sha Tsui and Nathan Rd (stops at Peninsula Hotel) running every 30 minutes. Taxi always available and inexpensive to most places of interest.

The primary advantage of this hotel is that it is quiet. The Whampoa area is well serviced for shops and range of good price restaurants and is very safe to walk around - Whampoa is a up-market residential area and shopping and eating here is at local prices. You can get everything here along Tak On St from shopping malls to more traditional street shopping at the northern end. The biggest asset is the promenade walkway which follows the harbourside for 1-2km in each direction and is a lovely walk, particularly in the evening with the lights of Hong Kong Island..

For those looking to do something different take the local ferry (next to hotel) to HK North Point, walk south-west to Kings Rd through the street markets then catch the double decker rattler tram in to Hong Kong central (Peak Tram stop is on the way), come back via the Star Ferry and collect the Hotel Shuttle outside the Peninsula - this is an experience that shows off the different faces of Hong Kong and very inexpensive.

Whampoa extension to subway and local station is currently being constructed and will be finished in next 12 months, providing rapid connection to Kowloon and Hong Kong.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the Harbour View rooms, well worth it. Rooms look over Kowloon Harbour and North P...

We stayed at the Harbour Grand for four nights at the end of February 2013 and were absolutely delighted. The staff throughout the hotel were attentive and courteous, the public rooms were roomy and well serviced and our bedroom was roomy with one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in. We were very fortunate to be upgraded to a harbour view room which was breathtaking.

We have previously stayed at the Marco Polo hotel by the star ferry which whilst it has a better location is not nearly the standard of the Harbour Grand. We used the complimentary shuttle bus a few times into town but also used the local taxis which are very inexpensive and only took a few minutes.

All in all highly recommended

Room Tip: try for the habour view room

We stopped over for 3 days at this hotel on our way to Sydney last November. Upgraded to a suite overlooking the harbour it was very hard to drag ourselves away from the room to see the city sights. One of the nicest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. Breakfast was of a very standard with plenty of choice. We didn't try the restaurant in the evenings as we wanted to sample Hong Kong's cuisine. The weather didn't permit us to use the rooftop swimming pool. Regular free shuttle bus transports you to Kowloon centre where you can take the ferry or underground over to Hong Kong island. Would highly recommend & would return to this hotel if ever back in this part of the world again

Room Tip: Request room overlooking harbour. Fantastic view day & night

After spending a week in Hong Kong with my wife and another couple staying at the Harbour Grand Kowloon we can only say how amazing the hotel and staff are. We stayed on the 20th Floor in the Harbour Club Rooms - the view was amazing, the service was fantastic from all the staff from the reception desk upon check in very late Friday night, to our check out on the Wednesday night. It was my wife's birthday whilst we were away and the hotel sent a bottle of wine, single red rose and a birtday cake to our room on the day of her birthday, a gesture that was well appreciated. We would recoomend this hotel to any one staying in Hong Kong, they have a complimentary shuttle bus downtown every half hour or a cheap cab fare if you wish about AUD4.00.
The Harbour Club Rooms are worth the extra money, wifi is free in the Harbour Club Room
