“Lovely Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a very good hotel,I didn't get the real wow factor that everyone raves about with this hotel chain but it was still a very nice hotel and the harbour view rooms are worth the expense,the room in general was very nice.We enjoyed the breakfasts,typical 5 star buffet with lots of choice,staff very good and the christmas tree in the lobby was beautiful.The singer in the lobby in the evenings was well above average which makes a nice change,hotel entertainers are usually awful but she was very good and we enjoyed listening to her.We also enjoyed the walk back from the star ferry along the promenade but we found the hotel was not in the best position for the MTR,abit out on a limb meaning that it was a long walk to get to the mainline station which was fine in a morning but a bit of a hike at night when you had been walking all day and were tired.All in all a pleasant stay

Room Tip: you must have a harbour view room or there is no point staying here,preferably high floor to avoid r...

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Kowloon Shangri-La & thank you for your positive feedback on our Lobby Lounge entertainers. Although the Hotel is located a few hundred metres from the MTR station, underground moving walkways make access easy and convenient. Thank you for staying with us, regards Timothy Wright

Great position – Excellent outlook – Nice people (Had 3 different lots of Chinese neighbors in Australia in last 25 years – all great) – Good room service – Breakfast (self serve) was fantastic - only problem encountered was one day there was no internet in the Horizon club - but the food and drinks there were free and the outlook and ambiance good

On a recent 4 day stopover in Hong Kong stayed at this hotel.Location was excellent handy to Nathan St and shopping markets.Hotel was very comfortable and Horizon Club was worth the extra Tariff.with free breakfasts and afternoon Drinks {any variety] and nibbles. Staff were friendly and went the extra mile to please.A very pleasant experience!

Recommendation from Emirates to stay here, have to say, wonderful hotel, nice, comfortable, well appointed rooms, great staff v helpful, food good. Tapas Bar was amazing both for food and casual drinks, not too far from airport and everythingnismin easy reach, most places of interest just a stroll away.

We recently spent six days at this hotel to start an extensive trip to China. From the moment we checked in to the time we left the attentiveness to service was outstanding ranging from the front desk, lobby staff, room service, cleaning and restaurant. Rooms were very well appointed and kept very clean. The concierge were very helpful in providing information and guidance around the city. Meals were well presented, the breakfast buffet was excellent. Strongly recommend you try the tapas bar in the hotel as they serve excellent food at good value. Other restaurants especially the Italian and Chinese ones are expensive. Overall highly recommend this hotel especially if you want to be on the Kowloon side and within walking distance of the ferry to Hong Kong island.

Room Tip: Choose one with a harbour view

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

In all honesty. I am disappointed. I am not someone who is overly precious but for the price of a room per night-disappointing. I came here with my wife after reading reviews from this site. We wanted a luxury holiday where we would be pampered and booked 7 nights. I am writing this from the Horizon Club on day 5. The hotel is nice, the staff are friendly enough but nothing more than any other 4 star hotel and as a Club guest, the staff have no idea this is my 5th day here, no "welcome back" just "what is your room number".
The hotel has a nice ambience although fairly tired and needing refurb. The rooms are big and nice, the harbour views are stunning but the windows are filthy. We have had facility breakdowns needing maintenance in our room. The food is outrageously expensive and below average in the cafe (We arrived late on 1st night and ate 2 watery noodle soups and a water in hotel cafe =$65AUD). I never write reviews but this should be out there. This hotel is 2x cost of five star in Sydney/Melbourne Australia without the extras you would expect from the usually excellent Asian hospitality. I would be satisfied at AUD$250 a night but at more than double, go elsewhere. I have had the good fortune of spending time in quality hotels around the world through work, this was my holiday venue and not one I can happily recommend as a high end holiday venue. Maybe different for business.
Put your money into shopping instead.

Room Tip: Deluxe harbour view is a nice room $$$. You won't get away from street noise, even on top floor.

Reception: fast. Efficient. Friendly
Room: large. Comfortable. Great shower. View from high floor. Bright.
Lobby: very large and convenient for business and private meetings. Serve lots of small things incl very, very old tea for $30 a cup. Great to try!
Spa: medium size. Good massage, very strong. Let the masseur walk on your back. Nice albeit heavy experience.
Fitness: a room full of excercise tools. Can't complain
Service: very good allover
Location: top if your preference is in Kowloon
