“Happy stay. Good breakfast.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Return to the hotel for Chinese New Year. Happy stay overall. Granted my preferred high floor room with great view. Breakfast is nice. (Though I would not recommend the dim sum option though. Taste not as good as an authentic dim sum restaurant.)

Room Tip: high floor makes a big difference.

We stayed there in September 2013 for one night. We asked for a top floor room, and got one at the 20th floor, which is the minimum to have a good view of the harbour. The hotel is not too expensive for Hong-Kong, which is a VERY expensive city to stay in. Location is not central, but you have a subway station around the corner, and a shopping center next door if you need to do some shopping.
The hotel is very stylish, and the room was very nice, although on the small side. Decor was very nice, the side of the room facing Victoria Harbour was entirelly covered in glass (top to bottom), so the view was great as you can imagine - Not so good if you have vertigo, please note. The room had an Ipod with speakers and selected playlists with different music, the hotel has its own cds with chill-out music which you can buy. The bed was also very confortable.
You should also check the top floor bar, as the view is great, and there's a good atmsphere, with a dj at night, and a hype crowd.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the Harbour, the 20th Floor is the bare minimum, otherwise you will only see t...

Thank you for your review of EAST, Hong Kong. I'm very happy that you enjoyed staying with us and that you found the hotel comfortable and stylish. You are right when you suggest to travelers that the rooms on the higher floors are the ones with the exceptional views, particularly on the harbour side. In fact, our view of Hong Kong is not the usual one, which makes it extra special. Also, I appreciate you mentioning Sugar and it's great vibe.

We hope you will come visit us again very soon.

Warm regards

This hotel is located in a residential area in Hong Kong Island. We took the airport train that cost 160HKD for two tickets to the Hong Kong station and then a taxi to the hotel. The taxi fare was around 65HKD plus two luggage 20HKD which I gave the driver 100HKD including tips. There is an indoor shopping mall connected to the hotel on the 1st floor. The MTR station (Tai Koo station) is just next to the hotel and you can also go to the station through the mall. You can find restaurants, a McDonald's, food court inside the mall and ATM machines, 7-11 and a bakery inside the MTR station.

The checking-in was quick and the reception area is spacious. Our room was clean and comfortable with a view of adjacent residential buildings. As the bathroom had a open shower and format, we closed the blinds most of the times when we were in the room. The light switch of the bathroom was not separate from the main switch and it could be inconvenient. The bed was comfortable with fresh sheets. We asked for extra towels from the reception and they were delivered within 5 minutes. We stayed for four nights and we found the wifi, wired internet painfully slow just trying to read emails.

We liked the location of the hotel as it was not crowded with tourists and travel groups. It is not close to any tourist attractions or central, but MTR would take you there within 20-30 minutes. There is also a bus stop with a bus #110 going to Tsimshatsui. Shopping was comfortable inside the mall and again not as crowded in shopping area like Causeway Bay. Hotel staff was efficient and helpful.

Overall, a comfortable modern hotel perfect for a relaxing stay in busy Hong Kong.

Had a two night stay in March and found the hotel and staff fabulous. A great breakfast and services in the hotel made my stay very good. The location if the hotel near the MTR station also made the hotel convenient and very accessible

I stayed in East hotel for 1 week in November 2013 and I was truly impressed with this contemporary and chic hotel with modern interiors. The hotel is designed to suit the needs of business travellers.

The in-room dining is very contemporary. All the food and beverages come in take-away bags, which is so much better than traditional way of room service. At least you do not have to call the room service to clear the plates/trolley

I enjoyed my stay here. The restaurant Feast definitely deserves a special mention. The food served is of very good quality. This has become the hotel of my choice for business trips to Hong Kong. I will certainly recommend this hotel for business travellers

Stayed here for a couple of nights on business. Great hotel, that is very modern and swish. Feast restaurant is lovely (though be mindful there are some great restaurants in the plaza attached to the hotel - just turn right instead of left as you come out the lift on the floor of the restaurant).

Lovely outdoor heated pool that's large enough to swim in. And the bar at the top of the hotel as breath-taking views and outdoor as well as indoor seating.

Hi Debbie,

Thank you for taking the time to post such a positive review. We appreciate you sharing your memorable experience with everyone on TripAdvisor, and particularly mentioning our pool area and Sugar. You're right when you say there are some great food options in Taikoo Shing. One to mention particularly is our first standalone restaurant, Plat du Jour. Definitely worth exploring!

We look forward to your next visit!

Recently stayed there 2 nights for business and had an urban corner room. The room was small but comfortable and the "proximity" of neighboring residential buildings was actually quite an interesting sight to see. Did not go down to the Feast restaurant but in-room dining was pretty good. The bar was also a great hang-out especially on a clear day. The only drawback I could think of was probably the smell of humidity when you first walk into the room, but then this is something you get with the open concept bathroom so….nothing a scented candle couldn't fix.

You definitely need to visit Feast the next time you're here! I apologize sincerely for the smell of humidity in the room, it certainly is not the experience we want for our guests.
