Went through Hongkong hotels religiously for nearly 6 months to find the right hotel as I was travelling with 2 children (7 and 10 yos) and my mother who's fussy about cleanliness and a bad knee (sounds like fun already !) Shortlisted the 2 Langham hotels (Mongkok and Tsim Sha Tsui) and chose the TST as we're more familiar with it (from previous visits ages ago) and also the special deal if you booked more than 45 days.
As we landed, we took the airport shuttle which went directly to the hotel. It was pretty good, though from the arrival hall to the bus pick up was a long walk (esp. for my mum), which we should realise would be the first lesson in a lot of walking when you visit HK.
The hotel was simple from outside but the inside was magnificent. The staff were also excellent. Every requests and questions were met excellently, from the Front staff, Concierges to the Housekeeping. Do not hesitate to ask for directories from the Concierges, we did and it made the trips easier!!
We were staying on the Club level for 5 nights (joint rooms) and did not regret it. The rooms were spacious, very clean. Mum and kids gave the thumbs up.Bathroom was the same. The only thing I noticed was the fittings like the taps were a bit worn down (from its original glory of gold), but they were maintained and we did not find it a bother/problem.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Its location is very handy, Harbourcity is just behind it, and Nathan Road is not far away either. Food is not a problem, there's plenty to choose from.
The MTR station exit is conveniently located across the road from the hotel. BUT, be aware that though one station has many exits, usually the main location of the trains will usually be quite a walk, don't expect to reach it once you enter one of the exits. It's quite a hassle, especially for my mother who has a bad knee. The distance to walk to and from, and also lack of escalators and limited elevators in some. Taxi is usually our mode of transport after a long day.
When we visited Mongkok, we saw the other Langham hotel (Langham Place), it was also a magnificent hotel, but the surrounding is less impressive and the number people on the streets, unbelievable! If you really like a crowded place, this one for you but I don't regret my choice, TST surrounding is better. Can't wait to go back....
