The Bishop Lei's nearly perfect location off the mid-level escalators is more than offset by the imperious and insufferable attitude of its staff, and the inconvenience of actually booking and staying there. Despite being able to book on-line, there is no way to actually pay on-line, so after booking I received continuous threatening notes from the Bishop Lei staff demanding payment within 24 hours or my booking would be cancelled. After figuring out the only way to provide payment was to actually call, I found to my dismay that the only staff who could actually handle payment are available only when I am normally asleep. This took three days to coordinate and ended up with me staying up until all hours just to be able to confirm a booking. The insult to injury came when our US-based carrier suffered a mechanical problem, eventually cancelling our outbound flight to Hong Kong and rescheduling for the next day. I kept the staff in the loop first that we would likely be quite delayed, and then that we needed to change our booking to the next day. Rather than expressing concern for our inconvenience at missing 1/2 of our time in Hong Kong, the first comment from the hotel was to imperiously state that they would hold me liable, of course, for the night we did not arrive. Having worked in three different industries, including hospitality, I would never hold a customer responsible for something completely out of their control. Despite its nostalgic location near where we used to live in Hong Kong, I will not stay at the Bishop Lei again, and neither should you.
[Editor's Note: I stayed at this hotel on April 16, 2014 with three rooms and six people. For reasons that are not at all clear to me, Trip Advisor sent me a note stating I had not stayed at this property. This report is accurate and deserves to be published!]

Stayed here as there was a promotional rate at that time. The location is good as it is close to the mid levels escalator, clubs and night life of Hong Kong.

I found the room to be very small and smelled of cigarettes.

No major problems with this hotel, but I think there are far better options in the area.

This hotel is ideally placed in mid levels close to good buses, they also have a shuttle service. The views from the rooms are spectacular. The swimming pool is small but very clean and the attendants look after you well. The rooms are small but comfortable. The receptionists although friendly treat you as if you were a student and do not provide a service that you would expect from a hotel. The dining room reminds me of a student hall of residence, but don't let this put you off as the food is fresh (although simple). It also stays open quite late and at night the food and service is friendly and good.

Room Tip: Choose a harbour room high up and pay the extra for a suite because the normal rooms are small

We were very pleased with the hotel. It is well located close to the mid levels escalator so you can get to Central easily.
Taxis are very cheap to get around - average ride £2.00
We have great views from the 22nd floor over the harbour and the view at night was amazing

There is a good sized swimming pool

We did not eat there - there is a coffee shop just along the road by the escalator for breakfast

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite - as this is actually still quite small , and request a high floor so you can re...

Safe and very well situated. The service was very efficient. Any single request was deserved with all the professionalism we were expecting. Rooms are at the right size and well equipped, breakfast was generous. The free shuttle provided by the hotel was much appreciated. We could not have a try with the swimming pool, however, we will test it by the next time we go back to HK.  Definitely a place to recommend. Raphael D.

We stayed in a suite overlooking the botanical gardens and zoo to the harbour and the view was outstanding, so good we didn't want to leave to watch the laser show, and when we finally did we hurried back. Close to the mid level escalators and some fabulous food, plus our outstanding view, we tended to eat out and come back to watch the lights with our feet up. Very comfortable bed, functional and reasonably sized bathroom, roomy living area. Service very good - each time we came back to the room, no matter how many times during the day, it had been cleaned and all the linen changed. Close by is all you might seek close to the hotel - laundries, wine shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, beauty parlours etc. The mid level escalators take you to public transport, like the amazing underground system, or you can use the hotel shuttle which runs frequently. We were looking forward to a swim but simply didn't have time though the pool looked inviting.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view
