The hotel is a good 45 minute taxi ride away from the airport and costs about HK$290. Located amongst high rise apartment buildings, the 47 storey Crowne Plaza feels very safe indeed and sits ontop of the PopCorn Shopping Mall (many stores and restaurants) and the Tseung Kwan O MTR station. I was greeted by friendly concierge and check in staff and allocated room 1506 which was very big for HK standards. The air conditioned room room was very modern and spotless with a massive comfortable King size bed, luxurious pillows and cozy duvet. Room amenities included coffee making facilities, mini bar, big screen flat TV with English movie channels (with Chinese subtitiles), BBC World etc, 24 hour room service, free shoe shining service. The open bathroom had a deep soak bath tub, large walk in shower with handheld shower unit and overhead rainfall shower, separate WC. Electronic privacy blinds came down at the touch of a button and a large mirrored sliding door ensured complete privacy if necessary. Complimentary tooth brush, tooth paste, shower gel, shampoo etc was renewed on a daily basis. Room service offered a slightly limited choice but all was delicious. There is an Italian Restaurant on the 47th floor, The Chefs Table and Chinese Restaurant are on floors 5 and 2. The Chinese restaurant served delicious Dim Sum (I had never tried Dim Sum before!) and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Being away from the downtown area, I knew that I would have to venture onto the MTR but was aprehensive due to being infamous for always getting lost on the London Underground. All I can say is that I mastered the MTR within a very short while and the next day was assisting Chinese tourists who did not know where they were going! By leaving the hotel through the lobby, turn left into the shopping mall, walk straight across to the MTR station and to the Customer Services desk. Purchase an Octopus card (minimum fee HK$150), go down the escalator and catch the Tseung Kwan O train to North Point where you change trains and get onto the Island line - most tourists head for Central. The ride from the hotel to Central takes about 40 minutes in total but costs only about HK$12.50. All in all I had a wonderful stay at this hotel and would happily stay at the Crowne Plaza Kowloon East again if I ever returned to Hong Kong.
