We booked on-line with the Kowloon Hotel after doing some internet research on hotels in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon. We were offered an upgrade to the Harbour Club for a few dollars extra and took it as we were staying in Hog Kong for 6 days and thought that access to a lounge ands complimentary snacks and drinks would go down well at the end of the day. We were not disappointed.
Space is at a premium in Hong Kong so rooms are small. It is a fact of life and we were ready for it. Our room was comfortable with room for us to spread out a bit. We had complimentary internet - another benefit of the Harbour Club and an excellent view of the harbour - on October 1 we had a premium view of the National Day fireworks!
The room was clean and well serviced daily. The staff at the Harbour Club lounge were very friendly and helpful at all times. They were a pleasure to deal with. Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of Asian and European food. Again the service was excellent.
Check in and check out were through the Harbour Club lounge on the 17th floor - no need to worry about enormous queues - and we were given a late check out as well which was much appreciated.
The hotel is perfectly located near the harbour. It has walkthrough access to the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station which was invaluable. With a pre-paid Octopus card we went anywhere we wanted by rail, bus or ferry for next to nothing. Public transport in HK is efficient and cheap - although crowded at times.
The hotel is situated close by to Canton Road and the Harbour City shopping complex, and to the Star Ferry for a quick ride to Hong Kong Island!
Using the Kowloon Hotel as our base was great and we would have no hesitation in staying there again.
