My Mum & I had a week in Hong Kong in late June, 2013 and shared a harbour view deluxe room at the Intercontinental Hotel on Salisbury Road. The harbour view from the room was amazing, with big picture windows to enjoy the goings on night and day. The room itself was very spacious with a fabulous big bathroom and a separate toilet. The beds were very comfortable, the air conditioning was easy to adjust to suit and the shower had great pressure and plenty of hot water. The Hotel itself was very quiet and we noticed there were a few big functions when we were there but we did not hear any guests walking around the hall ways. We enjoyed the extensive buffet breakfast each morning and often enjoyed a drink and a snack in the Hotel lobby. The lobby bar has a wonderful view also, especially in the evening when the skyline starts to light up. All staff at this Hotel, from housekeeping to the reception staff to the wait staff were absolutely lovely. No problems with anybody. The concierge desk were always helpful, as were the staff opening doors or organising taxis. Nothing was too much trouble for these people and they were always a pleasure to deal with. Their service was always delivered with a smile or a friendly comment. I would highly recommend this Hotel to anybody staying in Hong Kong. It was a 10 minute walk to the Star Ferry. Five minute walk to the Peninsula Hotel via the underground walk way. Two minute walk to the Avenue of the Stars. Five minute walk to the closest MTR station (Tsim Sha Tsui East) and Sogo Department Store was next door to the Hotel. I did not go in the pool but did visit the area for a look. It was a fabulous pool with plenty of lounges and friendly staff on hand to help you. I did not use the gym but it looked very clean and well equipped with plenty of treadmills etc. We also dined in the Yan Toh Heen Chinese Restaurant in the Hotel and the food was fabulous as was the service. It was expensive but well worth the price. This Hotel is exceptional and I would highly recommend it. I also hope to return to Hong Kong and would definitely choose to stay here again.

I'm currently sat in room 410 - looking out over dusk on Victoria Harbour. I have stayed here about five times - but the last time was about 4 years ago. Even then, I much preferred it to the Peninsula and Mandarin Oriental (where I have also been privileged to stay in) since it is brighter, more spacious and the stunning views from public areas. However, Hong Kong changes so quickly, I thought it may have become out-dated.

Not so. Whilst rooms are not the most up to date (they are about to begin a refurbishment programme), everything else seems so current. Service is fantastic - better than ever - particularly in Harbourside which has to offer one of the best breakfasts in the world.

Staff are increadibly efficient and friendly - not snooty at all which you sometimes find in Hong Kong. The outdoor pool is the best I know in Hong Kong (although the spa pool is now closed - probably because of the building work next door - which is a shame), the gym is well equipped, and relatively quiet. Spa and massage facilities are great, although it would be good to have a sauna or steam room. You can hire your own suite with steam/sauna and jacuzzi for HK190 for half an hour when booking a treatment - which seems reasonable (inexpensive if you are a couple) but it would be good to have one for general use.

There is a brilliant choice of restaurants and, of course, one of the most impressive bar/lobbies in the world.

Prices are high but comparable to anything at this level in HK. If I'm travelling alone, i don't mind much about the view, but with spouse and/or family, you really need to go for a harbour view room. It is one of the most privileged spots in the world and great to enjoy it for a few days in your own little 'apartment.'

I think the location is perfect. Whilst many people prefer to stay on Hong Kong Island (where most of the sights and attractions are), I prefer to enjoy the view of the Island from the Kowloon side, and just pop over when I need to. The Star Ferry is just a 5 minute walk away along the promenade, and there is a metro station practically underneath the hotel. Short taxi to Airport Express Station, or there is a complimentary bus that runs from the station to just behind the Sheraton Towers (get off at that stop) which is just opposite.

HK is not one of my favourite cities. However, this is one of my favourite hotels and reason alone to want to return soon.

This was our first visit to this Intercontinental Hotel. The reception service was exceptional!
Our room harbor view was phenomenal ! The butler service was right on the money. The dining area for the breakfast buffet was great, too. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and its exceptional staff. They were so attentive to the guests and pet all the lounge chairs ready for the next guest .
They actually changed the lounge covers with each guest. The pool gets full sun all day! They have plenty of umbrellas should you want shade. I can't say enough about what a wonderful stay we had. The Intercontinental Hotel definitely Hong Kong should share their high standards with their other hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for harbor view

When my husband booked the hotel, I wasn't sure if we'd picked the best choice for our stay. I was very pleasantly surprised. It is a beautiful hotel and a perfect location to enjoy Hong Kong. We were given a lovely room looking over the harbor. The hotel sits right on the waterfront of Kowloon and the view is amazing. It is an easy walk to the Star ferry and that was such a fun and quick way to get across the harbor. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have seen and we also had a casual dinner and enjoyed a great view of the evening light show. I would absolutely pick this Hotel for a return visit.

We feel that the Intercon’s (originally The Regent’s) harbour view rooms, especially those on the lower floors, have the best harbor views in all of Hong Kong because, backed by tall mountains, Victoria has a wider array of skyscrapers and advertising walls of light than Kowloon. The harborscape resembles my memory of the view from the signals deck of a seaplane tender in the early 1960s when U.S. Navy ships habitually anchored right in the middle of the harbor and Mary Soo’s lady workers painted them gray in exchange for unwanted garbage as payment. Even during a three-day period of torrential rains in June 2013, from our room 414, the view of Hong Kong island, the silently moving harbor traffic, and strollers on the Walk of Stars, was spectacularly romantic. If the Intercon’s panorama appeared in a film, surely it would be accompanied by majestic sweeping music in the background. Although they don’t reach down to the floor, the windows are broad, stretching for 12 feet in the middle and to about six feet on each side. For an unimpaired view, the glass is not separated by a seam in the middle, as at the Shangri-la. The Intercon has all of the luxury and convenience of a five star hotel with well-trained and professional staff. It would be a perfect location if only there were a tunnel from the Sogo department next door to the Intercon so guests would not have to brave the rain (although the concierge generously hands out umbrellas to guests). The room was large, clean, and always quiet with no neighbor noise. The harbour view rooms are comparatively expensive, but they are the ingredient that makes the Intercon one-of-a-kind. We would rate our stay at the Intercontinental Hong Kong as excellent, and probably even magic.

Room Tip: If we could not stay in a harbour view room, we would not stay at the Intercontinental Hong kong.

Stayed here for about a week on business. upgraded to harbor view room, and the view was spectacular. The room itself is beginning to show its age, but still well maintained. Breakfast was impressive. One of the best anywhere. Presentation was great with nice variety. BUT this place is expensive, and i will only stay here when i am not on a budget.

Probably the best location in Kowloon. Accommodating staff! By far the best breakfast buffet I have ever seen. The rooms are good size with huge bathrooms and amazing views overlooking the river and perfect to watch the nightly light show. Overall a good experience.
