Harbour Plaza is a great hotel at an amazingly reasonable price. A lot of conveniences are available to you even if you're in the New Territories of Hong Kong. Right below the hotel is a mall and a park. The only trade-off for Hong Kong visitors is that it's very far from your main destinations (which are presumably Hong Kong Island, Disneyland, etc.). Just expect 45 minutes to an hour trip before you get to Mongkok, etc. Trains are the best way to travel. Get an Octopus card if you can if you're staying here and going to roam everywhere in HK.
Though staff are English-speaking, accent was a bit difficult to catch. (Maybe we should have learned Mandarin before going) This made communicating a bit difficult and we had some misunderstandings on the reservation, booking, and the amount we had to pay. They didn't get to explain that the credit card needed to confirm our deposit had to be the one used online (we used Booking.com). When we were about to check-out, we called to ask if we had any additional payments to make. They said we haven't paid for the room yet. Again, they didn't explain that the deposit will be used. In the end, we ironed everything out with the helpful staff of the hotel. It was nerve-wracking to be told these things but it was just a problem with communication, not really a fault of the hotel staff.
Rooms are big and spacious. Furniture might seem a bit dated but no foul smell or any mysterious spills or stains on the carpet or sofa. The view from our window was great, specially because the park was really nice to see in the morning. Bathroom was always clean and dry. Even had a kitchen with stove and refrigerator. No pots and utensils though.
Overall, this was a far-flung but worth-the-trip hotel. Here, you won't feel hurried as you would in Hong Kong and Mongkok. You could really just prop your feet up and sleep and relax. Even for Hong Kong residents, being here could be one great staycation or weekend get-away.
