I'd rate this hotel a 4+.

I booked a room with a king bed and full (deluxe) view of the harbor. It was worth every penny – the view was amazing! The room size was quite large, as was the bathroom. The only thing that was a bit “off” was that the shower stall was pretty small – especially relative to the size of the bathroom. The room was well stocked with amenities, including a fresh fruit bowl on arrival. The gym was also a decent size with an adequate number of machines and very helpful staff. I also tried out the spa and can highly recommend the massages. (The restaurant/bar area around the outdoor pool is also a nice spot to relax for a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the hotel.) The hotel has a number of high end restaurants; I tried 3 of them – Nobu, Spoon and Yan Toh Heen. All 3 were very accommodating to someone dining alone. Personally, I thought Nobu and Yan Toh Heen were top notch, but I was disappointed in Spoon. (I would not recommend the lattes in the hotel; they were $10 and not particularly good; go to one of the Starbucks nearby instead). I also booked a driver guide for 3 hours to take a short tour of the city and would recommend using that service if you are interested in sightseeing. The guide was excellent and very willing to tailor her tour to your interests and the time you had, the driver was very professional and the vehicle was a spotless Mercedes. I used the concierge for a number of services - restaurant reservations, shopping, tours, etc. and she did an excellent job on everything.

Even if you don’t splurge for a view room, the view from the lobby lounge area of the hotel is also fantastic. So I’d recommend stopping in for a drink and just taking in the view. (You can also easily see the light show in the evening from the lounge area). Finally, the hotel location was excellent for all sorts of shopping.

Stayed here for four nights, which was a perfect stay. We very much liked the club Intercontinental lounge at the second floor, perfect views, quiet ambiance, well trained and helpful staff.

Dinner at the Japanese restaurant was an experience on its own. Relaxed, outstanding food, professional service and again nice views on the harbour and HK Island.

The hotel remains world famous due to the outstanding vista of either day or night scenes from their Harbourside restaurant location.Refered to often as the old Regent by locals the rebranding to an Intercontinental hotel happened a long time ago.Located close to the water with fabulous views of Central it is one of Hong Kong's iconic hotels.I stay here often and have done for more than a decade,the greeting is always a warm welcome and my junior suite is always made available from 8am as a Royal Ambassador member and late check out is also assured.A very sophisticated hotel catering for the elite business clients from around the world and very experienced at dealing with difficult people like myself who do not mind spending the big bucs and to receive the appropriate service,here it is guaranteed to be first class.There is a very nice Club Lounge that overlooks the people engrossed in afternoon tea and scones and those meeting with associates or old friends.Home to Ducass's the Spoon restaurant,my favourite Nobu and it's top class cuisine from Japan and not forgetting the world famous daily buffet three times a day in the Harbourside restaurant,this is literally packed every night as locals feast on the freshest seafoods and amazing curries,roast duck,roasts and much more.
In addition there is a fabulous Chinese restaurant on the premises and a steak bar with incredible wine lists.The hotel remains top of my list as over the years it has maintained a high standard and in fact has improved with age and experience.It is always a pleasure to return.
Prices for a room are high and best if booked on line through the IHG site there is no dress rules but less than casual attire is frowned upon,this is truely a fine hotel and proper attire should be a daily consideration.The room types are too numerous to mention just accept each will have all that you require for a happy stay,the best comes at a price and the old story remains you get what you pay for is very accurate.This is without a doubt my favourite hotel in Hong Kong and I have tried nearly all of them over the years and Happy to return time and time again...................................................

I first stayed at this hotel in 1987 when it was the Regent. At that time I thought it was one of the best hotels I had every experienced and that opinion still holds 25 years later and in its present incarnation as a Interconti. First of all, the staff could not be nicer and more helpful. Mistakenly, they had put us in a smoking room but fixed this in a matter of minutes. Every time I needed help with anything - luggage, business center - I found staff who really knew what they were doing and could almost predict what I needed to done. The rooms have those great bathrooms that Regents are famous for and are extremely comfortable and well laid out. The internet is fast and reliable and best of all, the view from the harborview rooms is spectacular. I would also note that they have an Alain Ducasse restaurant (Spoon) on the premises and all the bars and restaurants share that fantastic view. So even if you are staying there, drop in for a drink!

Room Tip: The harborview rooms are worth the uptick in cost.

Especially if you have had a long trip. Very efficient service and just so wonderful to be able to relax while being whisked to the hotel. At the hotel, we were met at the door by name, and taken to our room for all the check-in paperwork.
Another thing, if you are paying this kind of price, spend a little more for a room with an incomparable view.
If, like me, you do not like buffets - you can have a wonderful breakfast by the pool. It is very quiet, and the service is impeccable.

Pros: Good size rooms for HK, well located, great view, professional and dilligent staff
Cons: Not all rooms will have the best views, there's construction work going on right next to the pools at present, everything's very expensive

Hong Kong is wonderful in October/November and this is the perfect location for a first visit. Yes it's expensive, but it rewards with large rooms (by HK standards) and the view is excellent. The hotel is 10 minutes on foot from the Star Ferry to cross the water, 25 minutes on foot to the ferry terminal to Macau and elsewhere, or 5 minutes from East Tsim Sha Tsui tube station - the hub to get pretty much anywhere you may need to.
As much as there's plenty to explore nearby, it's nice to spend a bit of time chilling in and around the property too: Sitting in the jacuzzi overlooking the east portion of the island skyline (the main part is obstructed by the hotel itself) with a cocktail was totally worth it. It's open until 10pm, so whether a sunset relax or a proper night time chill out, it's exactly what can't be done over in the UK or many other Western countries at this time of year... or ever, really.
It's not 100 per cent without issue though: the building site next to the hotel fires up at 8am and the machines are loud enough to rumble the windows; it's that unpleasant frequency that resonates. We put up with it for a day (there was no work at the weekend), then a random 3am party in the room opposite was the last straw - straight on the phone to the staff and they came up straight away to investigate. We were given a new room to sleep in that night and then offered a new room in a different location from the day after. The staff dealt with packing up and moving our things. As much as that sleep interference was a nuisance, the way it was dealt with makes it forgivable - the staff here seem to really care.
It's pricey though when considering the HK exchange rate. Expect to pay around £8 for a bottle of beer, or £12 for a cocktail. An hour massage was about £85, which was as expected somewhere like here. The rooms are, obviously, considerably more again for the night... but it felt worth it for the luxury.
There are few (arguably no) better places to stay, and as this Intercontinental is on the Kowloon side it's away from the claustrophobic mayhem of the island yet close enough to get there in minutes. Definitely worth a pop, even if just for a long weekend at the end of a longer trip. I'd happily stay again.

Room Tip: Avoid the side, particularly the corner next to the pool - when the machines on the next door buildi...

This is not an inexpensive hotel. It costs circa £380GBP for entry level, rooms plus 28GBP per person for breakfast. Having said that, from the moment you enter it is luxurious and full of style. Every part of this hotel is decorated to the highest and most comfortable standards, guest rooms and bathrooms are beautiful. An abundance of staff are available to open the lobby doors for you, deal with any issues you have or serve you amidst its opulent surroundings. It has a number of restaurants inside, 2 of which have Michelin stars, all of which charge accordingly. In the terrace restaurant 2 burgers, a bottle of wine and sparkling water will set you back about £100GBP. The buffet lunch is about £45GBP per head plus drinks. 15% service charge goes on top of meal and drinks purchases.
It comes as no surprise to see the car park full of Ferraris, Masseratis, Bentleys and Aston Martins. This was a very high end experience and indeed a special, but expensive, treat.
The hotel is in a great position to see the nightly light show in Victoria harbour, in fact you can sit in the lobby lounge and have a perfect view this nightly event if you have nothing better to do. It is also well located for the ferry, the Ocean view shopping mall and the Big Bus company drop off and pick up points. However if I was going back to Hong Kong I would stay on the Hong Kong Island side as I think there is a lot more going on over there. Kowloon side seems lack on the entertainment side of things.
I would highly recommend this Hotel for a first class experience, it delivers on all fronts, at a cost.

Room Tip: If you can afford to go for a harbour view room you wont be dissapointed with the view.
