Having travelled to Hong Kong for our second vacation this year, Gateway was our first choice.
Travelling with family (incl kids) we spent 8 nights at the Hotel.
Gateway is located in Kowloon, TST and part of the massive Harbourside Shopping Centre. Luxury shopping, bargain shopping, fantastic restaurants are all at hand.
The Hotel is opposite Haiphong Road whereby a very short walk you will find the MTR (train) station. A short stroll away (up the street) is Victoria Harbour and the famous Star Ferries.
The tourist strip of Nathan Road is at the end of Haiphong Road (200m or so away)
On Haiphong Road is an entrance to the fantastic Kowloon Park....great for the kids with swimming pools and a McDonalds that sells ice cream and frozen drinks.
The pool is located at the "related" Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel - a few minutes up the street.
The Hotel is currently undergoing renovations with the restaurant "Three on Canton" new since our last visit. Fantastic renovation...very modern and amazing range of food (at breakfast).
I would recommend spending a little extra and upgrading to a Club Room that provides access to the Continental Club Room. The Continental Club access provides afternoon tea (late lunch), evening cocktails and enough fantastic variety of food that if you choose, you would not need to go out for dinner.
With Club Room access, you have a choice of breakfast at either the Club Room or at Three on Canton (which has more variety).
The staff are a credit to the Hotel, only too willing to accommodate your request and provide advice about anything to do with Hong Kong.
Notwithstanding the Hotel is undergoing renovations (work is carried out only during the day) , the rooms are, in my opinion, good - very clean, tidy (housekeeping twice a day, plenty of toiletries and complimentary water etc.).
My next visit to Hong Kong will, undoubtedly, be at the Gateway.
