Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Cityview hotel garners praise for its stellar location, just steps away from Yau Ma Tei MTR station, making it a hit for easy airport access and city navigation. Guests appreciate the clean and occasionally spacious rooms, though opinions vary with some citing size constraints and lighting issues. The establishment offers commendable value and spotless cleanliness, though it's not without critique in customer service and pricing. While the amenities are seen as basic with a hint of outdated charm, the overall atmosphere is considered serene. Service, especially at reception and concierge, consistently receives accolades for its warmth and efficiency.

We caught the bus A21 from airport and alighted at stop 9, this drops you off close to the hotel. Turn onto Pitt St from where you get off(Nathen Rd) , take the 1st street left and you will see the hotel. The rooms are spacious and cleaned on a regular basis. Staff are very friendly, Head Consierge Bowie Lam and Assistant Manager Gary Li were very helpful and did their upmost to make our stay memorable. The hotel is just around the corner from Yau Ma Tei MTR which is cheap and is the easiest way to get around Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

The last corner room is pretty small. So I requested to change room on the 2nd day. Feel much better on the replaced room. Very convenient location with easy access to food and MTR. The pillow is pretty flat. Luckily they provide extra pillow.

Great location, just 2 mins from mtr Yau Ma Tei station & 5 mins from A21 bus station (to airport) The room is very clean. There’s no smell of smoking at all & very comfortable place to stay. Great service minded especially receptionist named Kathy Chan. She takes care of us well. Love to revisit this hotel in the future

I had stayed in Yau Ma Tei area before, but the hostel I stayed at previously had become very complicated to book. This place came up on my radar with plenty of good reviews and reasonable prices, so I decided to book here. So glad I did! Steps away from Yau Ma Tei MTR. Plenty of shops and food places along Nathan Street and by Mong Kok. Fresh fruit at the wholesale fruit market. Only a half hour away from Tai Po station along the Rail line if you like hiking at the nature reserve there. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room was practical and efficient, considering the space (two single beds for a mother-daughter trip). This was a true non-smoking space, as I remember smelling cigarette smoke in the previous hostel I stayed at. I wish the fridge temperature was set a little lower than 4-8C. Highly recommend this place and would stay here again. I regret not having time to try the pool or the gym, since this building is affiliated with the Yau Ma Tei YMCA.

Excellent location for a diy trip. Close to bus/mtr stations, ladies' market, sneaker street, INC chapel, food restos & stalls. Rooms are clean and nice. Beds are a little hard for some of my relatives. Breakfast menu are all the same everyday. No rice option available. We could've booked some of our nights without bfast then have eaten outside of the hotel. Overall it was a great stay.

The room lighting was challenging, the electrics throughout were hard to fathom. The fridge was inefficient. Room was good overall, the bed was very firm but we got used to it after the first night. The Amazing restaurant wasn't very amazing, sandwiches were average and we thought overpriced. The concierge was extremely helpful, weighing and storing our cases and generally providing information on the area.

Cityview Hotel is a fantastic accommodation option right in the heart of Hong Kong, less than one minute from bustling Nathan Rd. The rooms themselves are well appointed and comfortable, but it’s the staff and location that are its standout features. Upon our initial check in we received fantastic service and were able to access our room earlier than anticipated and Kathy Chan at reception was incredibly helpful in sorting a taxi in the wee hours to take us to the airport. What’s more, upon our travel plans changing last minute, she welcomed us back to the property and made arrangements for us to re-access our initial room — and all this before breakfast time. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a convenient and reliable stay.

The location and rooms are ok. Bed is very stiff. Exhaust fan at one of the room not working. Internet connection keeps dropping. And sound from nearby fire station and ambulance is very noisy, especially at night.
