“Large rooms, quiet area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We booked a Superior Double room for 6 nights and we were impressed to see it was such a large room. The room was the largest we have ever stayed in, complete with a living room area, a breakfast table, and a kitchenette with a microwave. The room was very clean and the bathroom was really nice. It looked cleaner than the one in our own home.

We had pleasant surprises as we noticed the room included new slippers, cotton swabs, toothbrush, toothpaste, instant HK milk tea mix, instant coffee mix, bottle of water per person staying in the room. These would all get refilled each day! The free water helps a lot when you're out and about exploring as it saves you from having to purchase from 7eleven each time you go out.

The only issues we had was that the hotel was far away from the city and the TV was way too small for the size of the room. It will take about an hour to get across to HK island. The price though more than makes up for these drawbacks. I would recommend that first timers to HK to not stay this far as travel time will take up precious exploration time. This hotel is walking distance to the Wetland Park so it's not like there's absolutely nothing to do in the area. Definitely stay here if you want to explore the New Territories area.

This hotel is far away from city centre but it is still quite convenient.
The room is a tiny bit old but it is very spacious. Everything is clean and the bed is comfortable. It's quite home-like that there are a fridge and a microwave in the room. The only down side is the air conditioning system. It was too cold if we switched the air-con on but if we switched it off it was too stuffy. The heating system was not working even we followed all the instructions.
The gym is quite fully-equipped but the closing hour is a bit early. It opens from 7AM to 10PM every day.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as the accommodation is pretty descent and I have read a couple of reviews before booking this hotel . Upon check in the hotel was so busy with a whole chinese groups that were checking in at the same time , nevertheless we expected the 4 stars hospitality . The room is big and got a splendid view over the area TSW ( Tsim Shui Wai) , very clean and neat . The hotel was always busy during the day because they offer shuttle service to town , because the area where the hotel is located is very far . We prefer to use the MTR which was quite easy and smooth to move around I should say . They were two small shopping malls close to the hotel and very limited . If you are on a budget trip and you would like to stay longer up to 4 or 7 nights and cheap is what you are looking for , then I would suggest the Harbour City .
I should add that the staff are very friendly and helpful all the times , one thing I didn't like about this hotel is it was too crowded during breakfast time and buffet selection was very limited .

Stayed at this hotel from the 26th to 28th of NOV as part of an incentive trip. the rooms are big, spacious and very clean. The restaurant also offers some good choice. This hotel is in the new territories therefore a good one hours drive from the city, there was no problem as we were in group with a coach at our disposal but for induvidual travellers you will have to spend a lot of time commuting to the city. Transport network is good during the day and the hotel surroundings are very neat with lots of parks around. there is also a shopping mall next to the hotel. The bell boys charge a lot for getting your bags from the coach to the lobby and they have also set a minimum amount for the tips which is 5 HKD per bag

Reasonable hotel if staying in the local area. Far from town for daily commuting, although takes about 40 minutes from nearby station. Local resturants only cater for the local cuisine, although there is a park and shop supermarket nearby. Room itself was decent although 27th floor air condition was questionable. I woke up with a dry throat every morning. Changed to 23floor which was better. Breakfast menu never changes and no room service. Staff was ordinary. Annoying however when they use the quest elevators instead of service. Elevators are busy in the morning.

My client provided my with the "opportunity" to stay at the Harbour Plaza during a business trip in mid-November, 2012. I paid the extra $360 HKG to upgrade to a Harbour view queen club room. The room was very small, had an old mattress, and all of the furniture was scraped and dinged up. The room was in severe need of redecorating. Also, you are limited to one free internet connect at any given time...don't use your iPhone and iPad simultaneously, or you will be charged!

The hotel club was okay: breakfast was decent, free nightly wine/happy hour for two hours, and snacks. The bizarre thing is that in a city were you can't drink the tap water without boiling it first, the club charges for bottled water...what is up with that? This is the first hotel club I have every been in that charges for bottled water, even during the free-drink happy hour times! You have to call housekeeping to get free bottled water and at that they will not provide you with more than two small bottles. Give me a break!

The staff was generally nice (except when you ask for bottled water). Room service food was a good quality; I had the Thai green curry. The fitness area is okay with good lifefittness treadmills and a fair amount of weight lifting equipment. I had a deep tissue massage in the spa which was very good and got the aches out.

The hotel rate/price was low relative to other local properties...I also stayed at the Hotel ICON during part of my trip which is a much better property, but is also more expensive.
