Hotel Icon VS Langham Place

Hi guys,

I'm trying to decide between the 2 hotel options below

Hotel Icon: Icon 36 City View with Free Breakfast

Pros: looking forward to eating buffet breakfast at The Market, better pool

Cons: location

Langham Place - Essential Place Plus with Free Breakfast.

Pros - room could be better than Icon, better location

Cons - not sure if the hotel is a bit dated or not in comparison to Icon

Has anyone stayed at both? And what did they prefer? Accomodation is for 2 siblings in their 20's

I did stay at the langham place before, the room is nice, the breakfast is fantastic and the location is superb as it is at Mongkok station while you can also shop in the langham place shopping mall and lady market. It is also not far from the Tsim Sha Tsui station. I think you can get everything from the Langham Place hotel. Unfortunately, I never stay at the icon hotel.

Considering your age and probable interests in going out in the evenings, I'd suggest the Langham Place. Rooms that I've seen are fine, no issues with being dates. Facilities, restaurants, lounge bar and area are all very good.

ICON is newer and taking some excellent feedback here on Tripadvisor. I'm just not as big a fan of their location, although its not that bad in the end.

You'll do well with either choice.

I didn't find the location of the Icon a drawback. True its not as well located as the Langham if you plan on walking to places and want to walk around for a bit of night time atmosphere.

Hung Hom metro was a 5 minute walk and taxis were easy to get, HK20 - 25 to Mong Kok, Tsim Sha Tsu, Star Ferry. No problems getting to or from places, day or night time using either the metro or taxis.

The hotel ( Icon) more than makes up for the location factor in their rooms & facilities and the extras they provide. Free mini bar, Nespresso coffee machine, free shuttle bus etc. I've stayed twice in the harbor view rooms which included a view of the city also ( excellent at night). Rooms & bathrooms were a very good size & designed well.

As BradJill says they are both excellent hotels & you would be happy with either one :-)
