This hotel is not close to the airport. or anywhere else for that matter. In fact, it will take from 1-2 hours to get there, depending on timing with public transit (the bus or train) and the "free shuttle" that only runs from the 2 closest transit stations. A cab will cost between 140 - 200 HKD and take about 30 minutes depending on traffic. The hotel also charges for virtually everything, including breakfast, so extra charges abound. There is no internet connection of any kind available in the modern, clean, but unremarkable rooms, and only a miserly 1 hour of free WiFi is available in the lobby, after that it'll cost you $120 HKD per day! Don't be fooled by discounts either, ours virtually evaporated when it came time to pay. Though, the staff was courteous and efficient.
There is no minibar, but there are couple of free small bottles of warm water to go with the empty fridge, some tea bags, and crap instant coffee for one. There is a flat screen TV with the usual hotel-drivel-quality viewing available for those feeling isolated and bored.
Be warned that if you take the A31 bus from the airport to this hotel, you will need to wait for the "free shuttle" at the last bus stop at Tsuen Wan West station, across the street (look for the posted "Royal View Hotel" shuttle schedule) in front of a mosquito-infested park. Take repellent. There is also nowhere to charge your Western-style media devices if you don't have the usual converter plug ubiquitous in Hong Kong, except at this hotel.
As for the "royal view", I can speak only for our room, but there was too much condensation on the outside of the window to be able to see very much of anything.
