South Pacific Hotel
Ranked #180 of 723 Hotels in Hong Kong
Reviewed December 28, 2013

I would have to answer "no."

A meeting was scheduled in HK and was advised that the wives of two directors shall be taking the opportunity to visit HK. As we normally stay iat the Traders Hotel (owned and managed by The Shangri-Lah group locatedin the Western District, I thought it best to choose a Hotel which is much the same price but better located for the wives allowing them to access the underground rail (MTR) and also nearby shopping and eating districts (Wanchai and Causeway Bay).

On searching the internet, I booked the Executive Suites of the South Pacific Hotel.

Unfortunately, staff are not at all welcoming or very friendly, their uniforms look like they came out of a rubbish bin and that is the Hotel's Management or owner's responsibility. As for the staff I believe if their working conditions are miserable, so will be the way they behave with customers.

Breakfast Restaurant, not at all friendly, just go through a processing procedure, food is not good and question their cleanliness and food handling. Attended their Restaurant near the Hotel Lobby; the food was poor. Obviously just serve tourists where they believe tourists don't know the difference. They deserve that comment. The Hotel deserves the entire comments made, which is sad.

Location:-
From the Causeway Bay, you need to take Exit A. It is about a one kilometer walk to get to the Hotel. To walk to Wanchai's main Bar and Restaurant area, also around one kilometer.

The Executive Suite Room was good in terms of the bed, the compact suite size was fine. The room was satisfactory but in saying that, I certainly wouldn't stay in a standard below the one we chose.

Hotel Surroundings are good if you like local eating style. Canal Road has some excellent places to eat, if you are comfortable eating in local style restaurants (which I do like very much).

I wouldn't stay there again. Rather stay at the Traders which I stay regularly and next time will have guests take the complimentary hourly shuttle bus to Central. The Traders Hotel is a practical hotel, not a luxury one but is first class. The Shangri-Lah certainly train their staff so well on all levels and that does show, detail is considered important which so many hotels fail to address.

Of course we all choose the Horizon Club benefits when staying at the Traders Hotel/s. Apologies, I don't mean to sound like a marketing company for the Traders, but just giving a clear comparison for the same financial outlay to a Hotel like the South Pacific. As for the Rooms themselves in terms of cleanliness, there just is no comparison. Rooms at the Traders are small but are impeccable and the detail is addressed. As for the services of the Trader's .... it's owned by the Shangri-Lah and that says it all.

Regards,
Liz

I tend to stay close to wanchai/causeway bay as it is convenient for work. Located close to causeway bay station and also time square centre makes it an appealing hotel in HK with a decent price tag (except when expo's are on). Not very large rooms but definitely clean and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Try to request for a room at a higher floor - tends to get a little noisy on weekends.

I always stay in Wanchai as it is convenient for my work.
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, I requested a high flloor as all hotels can get fairly noisy in this area.
Room was quite small, same as most other hotels in the area.
Furnishings looking a little tired but clean.
Price was reasonable.

Have stayed in better hotels and also in worse in Wanchai.

Room Tip: High Floor!

We stayed at South Pacific Hotel on our first trip to Hong Kong because of the location. It's a good walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and the metro. The hotel itself was alright, definitely no frills. The room was quite small and there was always the faint sound of music coming from the hallway. The bed was pretty comfortable and bathroom was okay. The hotel had a pretty good buffet breakfast that is worth checking out. There was a small gym which was convenient but only if you need a very basic workout.

I generally stay in this Hotel during Business trips. It looks like it is a 4 Star Hotel, but the Hotel is very good and very well maintained. Very professional staff. The cleanliness and hygiene is excellent. If you happen to get a room facing the Morrison Hill road quite higher up (like 20th floor), you can get a nice view and you will also be able to spot the Victoria Peak from here.

The best part of this Hotel is it is at the heart of the city and many food joints nearby and close to most prominent offices. The Hotel is also directly connected to the Airport using the Shuttle Bus Service and it just costs you HKD 150 for a single trip against HKD 300 on a Taxi.

I did try the food only once in the Hotel and it didn't suite my taste. But I wouldn't give a bad review against the food as I haven't explored much, as the food outside the Hotel has more variety and comes at almost 1/2 the price.

All in all a good Hotel to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room which is 20 floors plus and facing the Morrison Hill Road.

We stayed in this hotel on the way to and from Sydney in November. The first time we had a small twin room at the back of the hotel. The decor was a bit tired, but the room was quiet. The second time we got a small double room at the front of the hotel, with disabled access bathroom - no idea why. Once again the furnishings were tired and the room noisy, as the traffic didn't appear to die down at all during the night. I didn't realise that you could stay in a hotel that didn't have a bar, what's more the mini-bar (misnomer) contains only soft drinks, although you can buy beer and wine from 7 11s nearby. The free wifi is a bonus and may make up for the hotel's downsides. If you are travelling from the airport I suggest you get a taxi from the central station, as we found the hotel very difficult to locate from the map provided. Like other reviewers I resent having to give a credit card imprint on arrival.

After my first visit on business to HK I was booked into Wanchai and stayed elsewhere since so returned with some reluctance. It was a pleasant surprise as the hotel is conveniently located and outside of the seedy areas of Wanchai which are good for a few beers buts thats it. Rooms were clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful and for the money paid represented very good value
