“basic but great location”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

very satisfied with my stay. 30 second walk tp the mtr and just a few minutes walk to the ladies market and mo kok. only downside is there were loads of noisy kids......
staff were excellent and really polite. bar was a bit basic but the resultant was excellent.

the room is quite spacious and everything is generally in a clean and neat condition. the handle of the bath tub is a little bit rusty though. it is located very near the yau ma tei subway station. am satisfied with the price and location of the hotel. stayed on the 19th storey.

This hotel is only 1-minute walk away from the MTR Yau Ma Tei Station. Within 5 minutes walking distance, one can access to popular shopping and tourist attractions including Ladies’ Market. This is my 2nd time staying at the hotel.

Just arrived back from a hectic 3 night trip to Hong Kong we stayed at the Cityview in Kowloon location was good underground station 2 minuet walk where you can get the train to Hong Kong island or further afield. Rooms in hotel a bit on the small side very little space for clothes but clean and had all you needed in a hotel room. Wifi in hotel seemed a bit on the expensive side free wifi available in restaurants ect but not as good as uk MacDonald's was only 20 minuets a day.Get yourself an Octopus card used on public transport star ferry's and the ferry's to the outlaying island museums MacDonald's ice cream vans. Public Transport is cheap and very efficient. We took a taxi from airport to hotel around £33 we where 4 so a taxi was probably cheaper than the train. Food in the markets where the locals eat was very good and reasonable in price we had rice and sweet and sour dish with beer and coke for around £50 for 4 persons. We found staying in Kowloon was ok you are close to the night markets where you can buy almost anything and always very busy. Top tip if you are flying back to the uk on the late flights our left at 23.45 consider booking an extra night as we had to be out of our room at 12.00 and an late check out was around £86 with no where to shower. there are showers at the airport that you can pay to use we managed to get one off our rooms to 16.00 FOC but we still had to wait around the hotel lobby until we went to the airport there are plenty of shops ect at airport if you wanted to go a little earlier than normal. With the Big Buddha and the peak railway would suggest you get there early as the waiting time can be long. With the Big Buddha we used the train and cable car on the way and the bus and ferry on the way back. All in all a very hectic trip but a good time was had by all.

Stayed in the old wing during January 2013. The temperature control on the air-conditioning seems to be spoiled. No matter what temperature I adjusted, the room was freezing! I ended up having to switch off the air-con. Room was tired with the barest of basic amenities. The only good thing was the price and the location. Very near to the MTR station and eating places. Will not stay here again.

We had a good stay. They upgraded our room from superior to executive. It was a roomy pleasant room nicely furnished.
It was an excellent location and the staff very helpful and friendly.

We had breakfast at the hotel on our last morning and it was very good with a Lot of variety.

Our only complaint was that when we settled our bill on leaving we were told that we would have got a discount on our buffet breakfast if we had got a voucher from reception. It was a bit annoying as that was the first time we were told of it. They did not offer to adjust our account accordingly.
