Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Kowloon East
Ranked #48 of 725 Hotels in Hong Kong
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is right next to the lrt but one has to travel for about minimum half hour(if not more) to get to the city. This can be very tiring on a daily basis. The room itself was huge and did not feel crowded. The amenities were superb. One of the bed beds with the plumpest pillows i have ever slept on.The bathroom with a big tub was super relaxing after a long dart of travel. The hotel is also 1 hour away from the city by bus (changing the lrt multiple times to get to the airport is just not feasible)

Stayed at this hotel during the Christmas break, when the hotel prices in HK were sky-high, but not this one.

This hotel is located on the east side of Kowloon. You may think that being away from Hong Kong island and Tsim Tsa Tsui makes this hotel a poor choice, but it is not. The hotel is just above the Tseung Kwan O MTR station, just 2-3 minutes from the exit through a mall. TSO is about 20-minutes from downtown HK by metro, so still very conveniently accessible.

As most hotels in HK, shopping complexes are all nearby. Food options are also plentiful in this area. Take the MTR to the last station on the line Poh Lam, and there are more shopping choices and food there. Same line in the opposite direction takes you to HK island.

Rooms were new, spacious, clean and nicely decorated. House-keeping were always very prompt, and room upkeep was perfect (kudos to the housekeeping team). TV had all the channels you every wanted, and even a iphone/ipod player. No free internet (wifi or cabled) in the rooms, but not an issue. You can get internet at the hotel lobby, or purchase a pre-paid card (HKD70 for 7 days of 3G!)

We did not take the hotel breakfast - we were in HK and not overly excited about having toast, bacon, eggs. Lots of dim-sum, and cantonese style food around. You can never go wrong.

The swimming pool looked very inviting, but during Christmas-2012, it was not ready yet. Too bad. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: ask for high floors, corner rooms, facing the sea.

We had not previously stayed with Crown Plaza but the present rates are quite attractive in the HK market. So we were drawn in by the rate but also by the adventure of being away from the regular tourist areas of Kowloon and Central. East Kowloon though seemed further out than we had expected? Well it probably is but the area is quite attractive with MRT actually in the building and access to both Central line and Nathan Road. What a surprise this property is! Our corner room was spacious, excellently designed with good quality fittings. All staff with whom we dealt were excellent and most willing to accommodate us. We found breakfast adequate covering most needs without being "over the top". Would we stay here again. Definitely!!

2nd time I stayed at this Hotel. This hotel opened in the fall of 2012 is conveniently located next to the Tseung Kwan O MTR station and next door to the new western style "Popcorn" Mall. If you are a IHG priority club diamond member I think you will enjoy this hotel. Personnel was very friendly. Great rate, was upgraded, received a free drink ticket at the bar and was greeted with a free bottle of (excellent) red wine and fruit in the room. Had a nice Buffet dinner and breakfast, and a late check out was no problem.
A little out of the way from Central Hong Kong, (about 30 minutes by MTR) but well worth it.

I have stayed in hundreds of 5* hotels and this brand new Crown Plaza stands out from every experience in the past. The perfect desig combined with every detail in the room and friendly staff makes this Hotel stand out, you will be surprised with all the detail in the rooms and all the little extras in the room that you can possibly imagine.The breakfast in the restaurant offers an unlimited variety of food, great rooftop cafe with seating overlooking Kowloon.

Stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel gives you a local suburban experience of hong kong. Not well located if you are a tourist in hong kong for the first time, but if you are from hong kong, or a regular traveller and are not sight seeing it could be a good option.

Several large malls within a few MTR stops. Lots of good mid range cantonese restaurants in the local area.

Hotel rooms are fine. Buffet breakfast was disappointing and lacking in asian cuisine. There are western coffee shops and a good congee restaurant nearby that you could use instead.

Taxi from airport is a bit of a pain, about 45 minutes.

Would probably stay here again given the low price and good restaurants in the area.

The biggest challenge with writing a review for this hotel is... How many times can you use the word "amazing" to describe this gem without making it sound like a cliche?! But the reality is, this place is simply AMAZING. I have been in Kong Kong many times, and have always stayed in either downtown HK or Kowloon area; however, the hotels in the city center tend to be very cramped, and can get quite pricey (especially during certain times of the year.) While this property is indeed 25-30 minutes from the downtown area by metro/MTR (which is super efficient here in HK, not to mention that this hotel is conveniently located right next to the Tseung Kwan O MTR station,) and you are not exactly in the "middle of the actions," but what you get in return is a brand new hotel that offers amazing values and impecable level of service. From the moment you arrive at the check-in counter, every staff member of the hotel makes it a personal mission to show how much your business is truly appreciated. They are eager to please, highly efficient is solving all problems, and never forget their smile. The rooms are giant by the usual Hong Kong standard, incredibly clean, and beautifully appointed with all the most modern furnitures. The attention to detail is incredible; every room is provided with plug adaptors for your US-based electronics, and the bed-side radio clock comes with iPhone/iPod docking station. The entire hotel, from the lobby to the hallway to the elevator to the guest rooms, gleams with beauty and modernity, and I challenge anyone to find even a spec of dust on the floor! The breakfast service is also amazing. While the price is a bit steep, the quality of food is oppulent, and nothing like the usual cheesy hotel restaurant. The coffee exceeds Starbucks quality, the large selection of both Western and Chinese food (especially the Cantonese fair) is delicious, and the waiting staff is attentive. The only issue that was a bit unexpected... During the busy morning and evening hours, the elevator can be a bit congested at times. So, when in Hong Kong, unless you absolutely must be in the downtown area, this hotel ought to be an obvious top choice. I certainly know that I will be back at this property in the future for sure.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the view.
