“Another visit and still as good as before”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

I have stayed here a few times now, the first time, nearly 12 months ago and I must say I was very impresses with the hotel. I had a corner room and it was as good as the first time. Again, I have to say, the location is quiet poor, it is around 30 mins to Temple St Market by MTR, 25 mins to Causeway Bay and Times Square. Trains can get quiet packed sometimes, especially in the morning.This is not very convenient, especially if you travel for work and are on a tight schedule...but...value for money was top notch, the room was spacious and very clean and the hotel staff (front desk, house keeping, etc) very attentive and friendly. The bed, the pillows and the whole layout was actually really good. The photos on here are really representative of the hotel.

There is a large shopping centre next door that spans 3 buildings, there is a fully stocked supermarket to the left of the hotel and plenty of restaurants and fast food outlets including the standard Starbucks and McDonalds plus Thai, pizza restaurant which delivers at no charge plus much more. The shopping centre is OK, you should be able to find everything there, from bakeries and groceries through clothes to electronics.

Would I stay here again? Definietly if budget is an issue, value for money is really good. I have stayed in a number of hotels around HK more, I tend to visit the same ones over and over again and this one is really good....but the location is a problem. Only stay here if you are not pressed for time and constantly chased by work appointments. If I was travelling for leisure I will definitely pick this hotel as the first choice. The money saved on room rates versus city hotel is money you can use for attractions and shopping...

Room Tip: Take the corner rooom, it is almost like a self contained apartment. The hotel does offer discounts...

As always, IHG hotels never disappoint me. This time I made good choice to stay at the Crowne Plaza in Kowloon East instead of in Causeway Bay. It is inside the Popcorn Mall, just right on top of the MTR station. Very convenient in terms of transportation, and yet away from the crowds in the shopping districts. The room is a bit small (maybe because mine is a corner room?) compared to the room at the Crowne Plaza in Causeway Bay. Pleasantly surprised to see a complimentary bottle of red wine when I came back from dinner.

Room Tip: Corner room seems a bit small

I was pleasantly surprised of the room spaciousness and quality (and this is in HK!). This compares very favorably with other 5 stars hotels I have stayed before.(which are plenty). Yet the price is very reasonable.

Of course, it is a little far off from the Central, but it is adjacent to a very modern shopping mall (where food variety is plentiful) and the subway is just a few more steps beyond. Once on the subway, your travel time is very predictable with the efficient MTR, even if it takes you a few more minutes to go into the city.

The club lounge is small but the staff offers guest to use the restaurant space (essentially shared). Afternoon tea and cocktail offering are fine.

Internet is stable even for a 4 hour web meeting.

First time in east Kowloon. We needed to stopover in HK before going home. After a month traveling around just wants to chill out and get away from the tourist areas but still only three station from Hong Kong island.

The hotel five star, great breakfast and Renie and team at the club level really made us feel at home. My favourite hotel on HK. We'll be back again!

For a Crowne Plaza, the hotel décor and room size is very nice. The facility looks fairly new. The staff were professional and the hotel common areas and room were clean and well organized. I stayed here because the companies that I was visiting are located in this part of Kowloon. Otherwise, the location is the only downside as it's about a 60-70 HKD taxi ride from the center of Kowloon. The neighborhood looks like mainly residential, so there isn't much to see or do. A mall nearby and a couple of streets with a few restaurants.

Although Tseung Kwan O isn't on Hong Kong Island or Central, the hotel is next to a huge shopping mall and the entrance to a subway station. You won't even get wet to get to a train on a wet day.

There were three adults sharing our twin bed room and it was OK using a bed that was short of Queen size between two of us. We didn't eat in the hotel as it was cheaper to buy food next door in the mall or during our outdoor tourism activities. The price is also attractive. Highly recommended

I have been home from this holiday 9 days. I cannot tell you what a wonderful time myself and my family had.

Similarly, when we arrived at the hotel the hotel staff were ready and waiting to take our bags and show us to our rooms. WOW the rooms are beautiful. The hotel is very contemporary and the rooms have been very carefully decorated. The beds are huge and a lot of care has gone into their presentation. There is a flat screen HD tv on the wall and a top of the range docking system for ipods etc.

The bathrooms are marble, spacious and have large power showers. However the maids come in everyday and leave the rooms good as new and clean the waste bins. They tidy everything away very carefully, even folding my clothes&hanging my ipad! All towels are replaced everyday.

Similarly the bar/restaurant staff are without saying the best I've ever met. Not only are they are so friendly, chatty and attentive but they will do everything to make sure your stay is perfect,however the food is presented to a very high standard and is actually very filling!

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel regardless of other reviews and really am sad to have left it behind! I met some great people whilst there that almost became a second family for the week. I hope to stay in touch with everyone I met....
