Unless you are willing to spend HKD2000 to HKD5000 for a big room with view of the Victoria Harbour from The Peninsula, The Intercontinental, Four Seasons, The Ritz or The Sheraton then Ibis North Point is really a great choice.
The rooms are small and utilitarian. It is a place for tourists and business people to park their bags and get some zzz's, meaning the guest will only be in the room for a third of the day, So the bed occupies most of the room's floor area. There is a table that runs the width of the room. The plasma TV is wall mounted and does not have a great selection of cable channels, Viewing is not comfortable because the TV is off center and too high. There is wifi, but it is slow. You are better off using one of the two PCs in the lobby if you want to fire off an urgent email. The shower has good water pressure and is well lit and well ventilated.
Ibis is part of the Accor global hotel chain and will not shortchange the guest when it comes to the standards by which it maintains its rooms. So as expected, the sheets are pressed and smelling oh-so-clean. The room is clean and so is the toilet and bath. Towels are fluffy and sterile smelling.
It does not have a gym or pool but for the price of staying at that property, it is a great bargain.
The location is not in the popular districts of Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok or Jordan. But all these places can be easily reached, rain or shine via the North Point MTR station which is less than 100 steps to the west of the front door of the hotel. There is also a bus terminal dab smack in front of the hotel if one chooses to try that mode of transport.
There is an in house restaurant, but there are lots of choices around the hotel, ranging from 7-Eleven, to tea houses (cha-cha-teng), to fast food outlets like Fairwood, McDonalds, Cafe De Coral, to full service Chinese restaurants.
From the airport, take the Airport Express train to Hong Kong station, and transfer (by walking within the MTR station) to the Blue Line and take it to North Point. No fuss. No frills.
