Forced yet again to move because of Chinese New Year, we picked The Island Pacific.
Probally not the first choice by location brcause it is outside the "area" but the views of the harbour and Kowloon, when the smog, allows are superb. The tram line is minutes away from the hotel and taxis are very cheap.
Entering the hotel from the street you go up an escalator to the 1st floor reception. The staff, of which there are plenty, are keen to help. On the same floor is the bar where a resident pianist and singer give good background entertainment. Food and stickies are available throughtout the day in the bar / cafe and a plentiful supply of papers and magazines available to pass the time.
Rooms are excellent, quite large for HK Island and well serviced.
Didn't find anything amiss during our stay and would heartily recommend to anyone.
Just remember the hotel is "out of the area" but all parts are easily accessible.
