“Security and excellent place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

The hotel provides a very secured system whereby all guest entering the lift will be asked to provide their room number in the evening. The place is at the right location near markets, convenient as the MRT is just behind. Room is also cosy despite the renovation

Room Tip: We were at the last floor - 18th floor - it was nice and secluded

Although the hotel is still undergoing renovations, the portions being renovated has been quite well-partitioned. I booked the Plaza Deluxe Family Room, which was rather large and could easily accommodate 4 persons, as it came with 2 Queen beds. There was even a bay window on which I spent a few minutes each night looking out at the hustle and bustle of Prince Edward Road West. The room is tastefully done up and my family and I were very pleased with it.

Its location is rather ideal, seeing that it's a very comfortable 10-minute walk from the Mongkok Station, and a stone's throw away (about a 3-5-minute walk) from the Mongkok East Station. However, do note that the Mongkok East Station plies the East Rail Line, which is not easily connected to Jordan, Yau Ma Tei, and the Tsuen Wan Line which would easily transport you to Hong Kong Island itself. It can take you to Lok Ma Chau Station, from where you can enter Shenzhen easily, though. And there is a bus station which does have many buses that can take you to many places in Kowloon.

Argyle Street and Fa Yuen Street are a mere 5-minute walk from the hotel, which introduces you to a fantastic time as there are so many little shops there that sells all things that range from sports apparels, shoes, fashion wear, electronic equipment and more.

Definitely would recommend that you try this hotel out.

Room Tip: Try asking for high floors as the view isn't that fantastic. If you can ask for rooms facing Tsi...

I have stayed here a couple of times on my trips to Hong Kong. It is conveniently located near a mall. There is a train station nearby (the Mong Kok East station). Hong Kong is a very convenient city so you can walk, take the subway or take a cab.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They can speak English. In the hotel lobby near the reception desk, there are cards that have various tourist attractions that you can take with you.

The rooms are nice and comfortable.

The Royal Plaza was an unexpected surprise... Hadn't heard much about it but was impressed from the time I checked in. Courteous staff, wonderful hospitality, contemporary design, eagerness to please customers... On multiple occasions, the service team would check on me if everything was okay. The executive lounge on the 18th floor was plush with various offers to keep the resident engaged. The restaurants had good variety including vegetarian cuisine. The new fitness center has just been opened. Getting transportation is not an issue since the concierge helped in availing a taxi, come rain or sunshine. The easy access to the shopping mall added a recreational flavor to the stay. It is also close to the TST waterfront and therefore ideal if you are keen for a truly cultural and local HK experience.

I only stayed here for a couple of nights but I have to say the hotel was excellent. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet with excellent service.

The staff were very friendly and helped with any requirements that you needed and all spoke fluent English so were easy to approach and communicate with. The hotel is near to the MTR and with the shopping mall and the La Scala restaurant right next to it you're never far from a good place to eat, in addition there are several convenience stores around to pick up water, snacks and breakfast.

A beautiful large foyer with comfy furniture, cracking restaurant with nice balcony views and an OK bar. This would be awesome if only it had been closer to the action. But over all still well worth a visit, if or when you find yourself in Hong Kong !
