“Great location - Never Disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

With family and friends in Hong Kong, we travel there regularly. This was our 5th time staying at the YMCA in TST.
The hotel is clean, service efficient, rooms spacious by hong kong standards.
But overall there are 2 compelling reasons that you should choose the YMCA when going to HK.
1) Location. Situated amongst the 5 star hotels in TST, you are only 5 minutes from the MTR, 5 minutes from the star ferry, 5 minutes from the space museum, and surrounded by all the shops and restaurants that make TST such a popular spot for tourists
2) Value for money. At only a fraction of the price paid in hotels nearby, you get a great place to stay.
Make sure you book early though, as the hotel gets booked quickly.

Only problem is that the Wifi is an extra cost, and you can only connect one device at a time. (Although we are told they are renegotiating this with their internet provider)

Room Tip: A family of 4 can easily fit into the family suites, which makes it even more cost effective. Famil...

Close to easy transportation options this is the place to stay. Comfortable surrounds and attentive staff made our three night stay brilliant. Book early to avoid disappointment. We should have booked a full harbor view room. Next time!

This premise locate at the middle of 5 stars hotel like Peninsula, Intercontinental and etc.... which you can imagine that it is surely one of the best spot in Hong Kong. The hotel itself just less than 5 min walk to MRT station. Try to book harbor view room, I'm pretty sure that this is one of the cheapest option that you might paid for the view of Victoria harbor and also watching Symphony of Light in your room is something unforgettable....

This hotel is in a perfect place to enjoy Hong Kong. Its right next to the Pennisula Hotel, close the Avenue of the Stars, the Bay with Light show, restaurants, and the subways - which are easy to use. The staff was helpful and spoke good English. Taxis are also easy and cheap to get from the hotel doors. Breakfast was fantastic! The rooms were spacious and comfortable - they even gave us a fruit basket and water upon arrival. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Hong Kong!

There is no more convenient and centrally located hotel in Kowloon TST than The Salisbury YMCA. Add to that the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is very attentive to the needs of the guest and I think one can find no better place to enjoy all that Hong Kong has to offer the adventurer.

Every need we had, from extra bath towels to any other request was met with a smile and swift service. We have stayed in many hotels on Kowloon and on Hong Kong Island, but this is our favorite. Indeed, since we live in Shenzhen and come to HK once a month, we try to make our reservation six weeks or more in advance so that we can get a room, which as often as not is impossible as the place stays booked.

From the Salisbury you are five easy minutes to the Star Ferry, three strolling minutes to Nathan Road, two minutes to the harbor promenade and museums, five minutes from great shopping in any direction and on and on and on.

We really do not care about the view, but if you do, try to get a room in the South Tower as the look toward Victoria Harbor. We usually eat the breakfast in the Mall Cafe on the ground floor. It is pricey for a continental breakfast but very convenient and a decent way to start the day. We have not made use of the workout area or pools, but the hotel has almost every amenity that one might want, including a great view of the 8:00 PM light show.

We try to make The Salisbury our home away from home while in Shenzhen and are generally disappointed if we cannot.

Book early - months in advance if you can - and you will enjoy the wonderful convenience of a great hotel.

Room Tip: Book a room in the South Tower is you enjoy a great view.

After having booked the hotel we found out it was actually owned by the YMCA so we were a little worried. Our worries were unfounded as this hotel is great. whilst the rooms may not be the best in HK our one was very comfortable and clean. We even had a room which had a view of the harbour and the very expensive Prudential Hotel which is literally next door for a very reasonable price. The Star ferry, Science museum and art gallery are all within easy walking distance.
The buffet breakfast is excellent and the restaurant has brilliant views across the harbour. all the staff were friendly and very polite. I would definitely stay here again for any future trips to HK.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor for a better view of the harbour.

Stayed here for 8 days in September 2013 based on previous reviews. Good selection for buffet breakfast. Small room and reasonably clean which was adequate for myself and 7year old son. Staff very helpful and friendly staff. Made use of pool, however they had swimming lessons going for locals in both sections. Walking distance to Star Ferry Pier or just walk outside straight into TsimshatSui subway. Only issue was bed was hard. Have to pay for Wi fi in room, but best to check out cost of tourist sims offered in Hong Kong for cheaper cost. Able to leave luggage with concierge service during day after check out as we had late night departure. Overall location and price was good.
