Reviewed April 27, 2014

Have stayed at the Harbour Grand a number of times now and always really enjoy the stay. Room quality is good and the view from the lobby is to my mind one of the best in HK. Staff always helpful and welcoming and restaurants all worth visiting. The free bus service into town is useful although taxi cheap and efficient also. Breakfast could be a bit more inspiring but we did stay fro 2 weeks!

Room Tip: Hrabour view definately worth the extra

We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay here again. We were upgraded to a suite which was beautiful, with a fantastic view. The weather was very kind to us during our stay, so got to appreciate the harbour views. The buffet breakfast was wonderful, with so much to choose from - we ate very well at breakfast and found that we didn't eat much during our very busy sight seeing days. We mostly travelled by Taxi, as it only cost $5 - 7 aud for trips to the Ferry terminal and the markets etc. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Harbour view rooms with buffet breakfast.

I really enjoyed staying at Harbour Grand Kowloon again. I stayed in this hotel also one year ago. It was really nice to be back there.

The hotel has amazing harbour view, but more is, that you can enjoy the city and harbour view from rooftop with lovely swimming pool.

We had with my boyfriend again room on club floor. Must recommend it. We had a lot of complimentary food and drinks during all day. Really convenient during busy day!

The staff is super friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great condition and facilities.

Room Tip: Club floor room with harbour view

We chose this hotel because it had a harbour view, interconnecting rooms and heated swimming pool and wasn't ridiculously expensive for 2 harbour view rooms. Overall I would recommend for a family if you like a good amount of space away from too much noise. We got the airport train and free shuttle bus to the hotel which was fine and we got a taxi back to the airport. They cost the same amount for a family of 4 but must depend on the traffic. Obviously taxi is more convenient with luggage! My kids (9&&) loved the foyer and the beds were very comfortable, we had lots of space and were given interconnecting rooms as requested. We booked through Expedia and the rate was reduced after booking but Expedia refunded the difference. We didn't get wifi included but there are packages available. Not having wifi was a pain but you can get it in parks or pay the large hotel rates!! The hotel pool has amazing views, we found the 'no spitting in the pool' sign amusing! The kids loved the pool but it was pretty chilly. We didn't eat in the hotel but looked nice. We walked along the front a few times to get the star ferry and just for the view which is lovely. We also used the hotel shuttle bus to get to and from the Kowloon shopping area which was great as the hotel is about 25 mins walk away from the star ferry. My kids loved the Temple Street night market and Ocean Park. We did get the ferry to the nearest ferry to the hotel from North Point once but took ages and probably quicker just to get the star ferry. If you are in a hurry to get around and want central MTR access then a more central hotel is probably better but overall we enjoyed our stay. Wished we had had more time. The hotel did bill us for an Evian water for $7 after we had left but I immediately told them we hadn't had it and they have said they will refund - hope this happens!!!

Room Tip: High floor harbour view

I'm a regular in this hotel and I keep coming back. Yes there are more hotels in Hong Kong, yes there are maybe newer hotels in Hong Kong but the Harbour Grand just does it for me.

The location is quite convenient near Hong Hum station. So when you arrive you can easy go to the hotel by taxi but I believe there is also a shuttle. The same shuttle also does pick ups from the airport and goes throughout the city at specific locations. The hotel is located next to the harbour which is nice to see when you wake up (if you pick a sea view room). The only downside is that HK seems to be often quite foggy so the view you can't always enjoy.

The rooms are pretty basic but clean though some rooms seem to have a huge bed, as in at least 2,2 meters width. Further more they have pretty much all facilities you need and if not, give them a call and they bring it to you. A big plus for me is that they have proper pillows as well blankets for people who are allergic to feathers. It's something even big brands sometimes look over and then you endup with some terrible pillow and sheets as blankets. Here not, they got it and it's actually quite comfortable.

The facilities I can't say to much about. They have a nice breakfast though in the morning and at the groundfloor a pastry chef from Germany who does some amazing Forest cakes. Nearby there are a lot of small restaurants but then HK on itself is amazing for food.

The only downside I can think off is that some rooms still allow smoking so you have to pay attention to ask for non smoking. Last time I had a bit of a noisy AC, which can happen but still not to pleasant. Lastly and this really grinds my gears, they ask 50 HKD per booking per ticket. I think such should be basic, it's also the only hotel I've ever seen doing this. Maybe on the side note also a bit annoying is you've to pay for wifi, it's 2014 it should be basic.

Room Tip: Sea view is nice if it's not foggy in the morning.

We chose the Harbour Grand for the first leg of our honeymoon and were rewarded with an upgrade to a harbour view suite on arrival. What a view! Staff were really helpful, speaking to taxi drivers for us as our Chinese isn't up to much. The breakfasts were amazing, I'm surprised we didn't need to have a lie down after the amount we ate every day. Although the hotel is slightly out of town, the hotel provides a courtesy bus free of charge that runs all day and if you miss the last one, taxis don't cost too much. We did eat at the waterfront one night and were fortunate to be able to sit outside and take in the fantastic view. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to HK!

Room Tip: Got to be a harbour view room, the higher the better!

My husband and stayed at Harbour Grand at the end of March and could not fault anything at all. Because we stayed for 3 nights we were automatically upgraded to Club status which was absolutely faultless. Staff everywhere in the hotel, amenities and location were superb.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Club Room
