“Good, Budget Hotel for Family / Group. But Needs Travelling....!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is our second trip to HKG. Since our last stay was at Mongkok, we have decided to stay in new territories if we get best rates. Accordingly, we have directly contacted HPRC and have booked a deluxe room @ 860+ HKD per night accommodating our 2nd child. Took the shuttle bus from HK airport and on arrival, they have given us a park view room at level 22 and the same was large size according to HK standard. Tin Shui Wai seems to be very far from the city but you don’t feel the same due to the excellent transportation system in HK. Taxi cost you 400+HKD to Airport/City, so better to take shuttle bus provided by the hotel ( TST 24 HKD, Disney Land 50 and Airport 100 HKD per pax, 35-45 Minutes, running at regular interwells) or Public Buses if you are traveling with family/group. For MTR/Light Rail I think you need inter changing trains.

You can find large groups from China roaming around the lobby create a feeling that you are just landed at a Fish Market in China. So No wonder if some of the reception staff treats you one among them while interacting…!!!


Positives:-

1. Large Size room with Double bed, Sofa bed, 3 chairs, 3 tables, a microwave and the room is very clean and tidy.
2. Well connected with all transport facilities
3. Buffet breakfast is good. (88+HKD per pax)
4. Most of the Staffs are very helpful, service minded, efficient and quick.
5. Few good malls around Tower I & II including KFC & MacDonald’s and local eateries.
6. You can hire kitchenette from the hotel @ 180 HKD for 24 hours and make your homely food in case you don’t like HK food.
7. Swimming Pool, Kids Pool, Kids play area are good (In Tower II)

Negatives:-

1. Too far from city centre, needs to travel ~2 hours daily for up & down.
2. Though staffs are very good, some of them do not understand /speak good English.
3. They collect full rental+ 500 HKD as deposit on arrival. But shuttle bus charges /other services to be settled immediately and will not added to the room bill.
4. They should find out some alternative to keep the large group check in to avoid any unpleasant situations to other foreign travelers.
5. No Wi-Fi /No Free internet at Tower II rooms, only available at Lobby. Understand Tower I have Wi-Fi in rooms. Internet charges @ HKD 120 for 24 hours.


We have stayed in this hotel Tower II from November 4th to 9th 2012.

Nice Hotel.
About 1000 rooms with Kitchenette.
Food is Ok.
Budget stay whilst in Hong Kong.
About an hour drive away from Hong Kong which could be a dud!
Very well connected via road & rail.
Very well kept rooms.
Good Value for money!

Room Tip: Higher = Better view

ROOMS
Huge room with Kitchenette and dining table. Was able to fit a family with 3 adults and 3 kids. Clean and modern.

LOCATION
30 minutes outside the city via MTR. Located in a big residential area with lots of towering condos. Right beside the hotel is a huge mall with everything in it - restaurants, bakeries, supermarket, boutiques, etc.

Big park outside the hotel, good for a morning run.

Luohu / Lok Ma Chau border 20 minutes away by taxi.

AMENITIES
Complete hotel amenities. Gym is one of the biggest hotel gyms I've seen in HK, with an indoor running track.

PRICE / OVERALL VALUE
The price is very good for a room that big. We paid 600HKD for a big room with 2 Queen sized beds, 1 big sofa bed, kitchenette and dining room. You can easily pay triple for a similar room in the city center. Recommended for big families on a budget.

The Harbour Plaza Resort City in Tin Shui Wai is a decent hotel, generally clean and in average upkeep. If you have reason to be in the New Territories or simply want to be out of the uber-crowded regions of HK, then it is worth considering. If you plan to spend a lot of time on HK island or in Kowloon, however, it is a bit far (they do provide an hourly shuttle bus service to TST which is the best way to get into town, as taxis are HKD400 and public transport requires multiple changes). The food in the hotel is also basically ok, neither terrible nor particularly impressive. The best things about the hotel are the price (quite reasonable by HK standards, around US$100-125 per night) and the large park behind the hotel. The service is also good (we were upgraded without asking and they kindly found connecting rooms for us and our kids).

Absolutely beautiful hotel, shuttle service from airport (reasonable price) plus shuttle service (leven more reasonable) toother areas. Guest room is a great size, wonderful view, staff extremely helpful, very large warm swimming pool on the roof top with tennis court, children's pool. Hotel has tower 1 and 2 linked together with a shopping mall with everything you would need. Large fridge, microwave, small but adequate eating area, TV, safe, computer desk and lots of storage. We just love it.

Room Tip: They gave us Tower 1 as they said it was quieter and there is a laundry room on our floor. We see th...

As my wife is HK Chinese we visit quite frequently. This time we couldn't stay with friends and being there for three weeks looked for a hotel. Harbour Plaza offers special rates for stays over 14 days and while Tin Shui Way is a good distance out from HK Island was very good value at @GBP 50 per day.
Tin Shui Way is a residential area with a really nice park adjacent to the hotel and a bus garage about 50 yards away. Journey time to Central is about an hour with buses every 10 minutes or so.

The long stay rooms are very large by any standard with a small kitchen area, a lounge area as well as beds. This hotel has a tennis court and a really good large outdoor swimming pool.

It has an airport shuttle service but the ordinary double deck airport bus is only slightly slower and much cheaper.

If you can accept the long journey time to HK Island this is a great hotel.

Room Tip: There are two towers that make up this hotel. Chinese tours tend to take the left tower (looking fr...
