“Very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Location quite good on Hong Kong island, 20 min walk from Central, 10 min to Macau Ferry. They provide a free shuttle during the day. Hotel full of charm, certainly a bid old but very well kept and maintained. Had a standard room on a high floor at a very very interesting price (around 800 HKD) for what it delivered. Quite small (especially if you are 2 as there is not much storage) but very clean, a quality bed, free Wifi in the bedroom with strong signal, very pleasant glass windows with a nice view on the city, which gives the room a lot of charm, a small desk and a plasma TV on the wall with a good choice of channels. Small marble bathrooms, but very clean, with everything you need (dryer, soap, shampoo)... Free slippers in the room. With the offer I took (30% off for a more than 4-night stay), breakfast was included, which was very good and quite complete(there was even freshly squeezed carrot juice!). Staff efficient but a bit cold (and finicky, they argued for 40 HKD cents which is roughly 5 USD cents on a bill over 500 USD).

Overall a very pleasant experience, especially at the price you can get it (800 HKD!)

Great Staff to start with, the rooms biger then the standart rooms on Hong Kong, clean, polite staff, the total 4 days i stay was good and i will be back, close to the MTR and if you read a map, its easy find your way around, we made it to Disneyland by MTR and the price was less the a McDonalnd burger.
Free internet wireless or wired was great, close the every place you like to go, food, shopping.
Overall:
Get bus #A10 from the Airport, he drop you in front of the Hotel way to get here and save money for gifts...lol
Thank you for all the staff who made our stay nice.

We have stayed at this hotel several times. A very comfortable and well located hotel. obviously not 5 star but the rooms are nice and well appointed - although a little small by international standards, by Hong Kong standards they are fairly standard (we have stayed at similar hotels in Hong Kong) and the staff are always cheerful and helpful. they have a very convenient shuttle bus down to Central District. The surrounding areas are interesting worthwhile exploring. I would certainly recommend it

Located just west of Central, this hotel was perfectly located. The tram toward Central is around the corner and is just a 10m ride. Also within 1 - 2 blocks of the hotel you have Watson's, 7/11 convenience store, and small & tasty dim sum shop, herbal stores, markets, etc.

The hotel itself is nice with friendly staff. The rooms are of good quality and well maintained. The room and bathroom are both small -- but this is on par with the rest of Hong Kong hotels, particularly centrally located affordable ones. Water pressure and hot water in shower were excellent as well.

Would stay there again as we had a good experience and found it to be good value.

If you need a good price option for a hotel on the Hong Kong side, the Island Pacific gets the job done. The rooms are not too small for a city of small hotel rooms. The room was clean though the amenities are a bit dated. The breakfast buffet is decent, the staff helpful enough, and getting a taxi was very easy. Also, getting to other parts of Hong Kong are easy as the trams are easily available on Connaught Road and Central and the Star Ferry a few minutes walk away.

I have stayed in this hotel several times while in Hong Kong and would recommend it for anyone looking for a place to crash.

The staff are particularly helpful and friendly, and the breakfast is decent and well replenished whenever something starts to get depleted. The rooms are small but clean and tidy.

The location is quite central but taxi drivers can end up taking a long detour to drive from Connaught Road so don't be afraid to yell "stop!" when you see the sign.

Enjoy.
