“Good Value, nice views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The Island Pacific hotel was a good value hotel by Hong Kong standards. Location-wise it is easy enough to get to the ferry terminal or to sheung wan train station, there are also trams next to the hotel and buses. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

The rooms facing the harbour had nice views and the bed was comfortable. They were very clean but a little dated. The pool area was extremely nice with comfortable loungers and a large outdoor pool. The free internet is a great bonus, as many in hong kong for a similar price do not offer this and worked very well.

The free breakast was fantastic, with a great range of food. However, it was only available to one guest per day so it is not very good for those traveling as couples. This should be stated before hand on the offer.

There are some nice bakeries and places to eat on the roads behind the hotel, including a mc donalds, cafe de coral and some other Japanese restaurants. Overall, this hotel was good value for money, and provides everything needed.

On the Chinese side of Hong Kong - a few blocks from the tram on the Western side of the main Island.

The rooms are small - but typical for Hong Kong accommodations.

Pay extra for a higher floor - and get a Harbor view. The night view of the working harbor and Kowloon is stunning.

This is a great value. Much better than you would expect for the price. The tram is a bit of a pain - but there are great neighborhoods close - and bakery and convenience store a block away.

English speaking staff - no issues.

You will thank me later!

Room Tip: Higher Floor - Harbor View is worth the extra $20.

Have stayed in this gorgeous hotel with a perfect location and excellent staff dozens of times since 2007. Located in West/Central right on the tram line on Des Voeux Road (with Connaught Road West in front along the harbor), it is perfect base on HK Island for sightseeing or for business. Kowloon is an easy trip on the Star Ferry or the metro, both nearby at Central. The basic rooms are very small and functional, like most things on Hong Kong Island. For a slightly larger room get the full harbor view. The staff are excellent top to bottom. Service picks up where extra space is not to be had. It is a good value and excellent location. Lots of bargain restaurants in the general area and if those do not suit your fancy, just hop the tram and head east or west for hundreds more!

Room Tip: Ask for high floor full harbor view for the best rooms

It is not centrally located but is near the tram station. Easy access to chek lap kok airport, the airport shuttle stop a building away from the hotel. There is also a free shuttle to hong kong mtr station. Nothing interesting near the hotel. residential area, wet market, old shops etc. Their service is excellent, much better than some 5 star hotel except for the cafe staff. It is the same level of service at other sino group hotel. Room design is a bit dated but the room, including the bathroom is clean. The room is a bit small. There is no space to open 2 luggage bag at the same time. You can choose from the pillow menu. Wifi connection is good. The free buffet breakfast has a good selection of western and asian cuisine. I will definitely stay there again.

It was such a wonderful stay, the staff are extremely friendly.
and truly wonderful view.
location was fine, no trouble at all traveling too the nearest MTR, as there was free shuttle bus running, or you could simply hop on a tram.Literally outside the hotel.
After returning back to england, i lost my cufflinks at the hotel, the staff were very attentive and sent them back to the uk.
I am very thankful, as i never experience such good quality service from hotel staffs ever.
i would recommend anyone to stay here, as it reasonable price for a truly remarkable view of HK.

Hotel very near to Central Metro Station and even ferry's from/for Macau have port in Connaught which again is in Central so it will help you reach your hotel in not more than 20-25HKD.
Hotel gives really good service from the time you enter their premises. Staff is very very helpful. They will ensure all your query's are solved asap. Shuttle service every hour too is extra ordinary.
Even Hotel prices are competitive compared to other HongKong Hotels...
