“best value in Kowloon”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

This place is not very flash but has all the amenities you need, has helpful staff, is very well-situated, and is very good value. I'd rather spend the $100 difference per night in price compared with the Nikko on Hong Kong's great food and stay here.

Location was good (tst). Walking distance to Avenue of Stars (only a MTR station away-east tst), temple street market (1 station away-jordan), ladies market & not to be missed sports goods (2 stations away-yau ma tei). Kowloon Park is just infront. Up the hill behind Mirama Tower. Hill is steep. Take a short cut by Knutsford. Shopping all around the streets area. There's a shop selling affordable tops compared to the high end shopping centre. 7-11 stores all over the place. Room pretty small but clean. Daily housekeeping. Change towels & stock up toiletries daily but not bedsheet. Paid wifi is for 24hrs use, ask frontdesk.

This was a perfect balance for a budget-conscious (but not cash-strapped) traveler who a hotel right in Hong Kong (Kowloon really) and wants no compromises in a room that you'd find in a good European hotel but who is willing to walk a little to the nearest MTR station. And that's what I got in the Stanford Hillview Hotel. Good, safe, clean hotel up to European standards. Room was small, but I've stayed in smaller. It was something like a Hotel Mercur property.

If you are a tall Causasian male, expect to be offered a custom-made suit on every walking trip to or from the MTR during regular business hours. It's not a big deal, but don't let it surprise you.

The hotel is situated in Tshim sha tsui so in the center of kowloon. I'ts directly on the knutsford street where they are many different restaurants(but they are more expensive)
The room were always very good. I stayed there 3 times and one time i get an upgrade to a superior room for 2 weeks...
The staffwas very friendly and helpful
The location is great. In 3 mins you get to the Tst metro station.
Overall a great hotel for a town visit.

Stayed here for 1 night passing through Hong Kong. The hotel is about half an hour from the airport and at the top of a steep hill. The Location is great as there is a street full of restaurants and bars just around the corner.

The check in was fast and efficient. The room was quite big and was fine for one night stay, just a little dated in terms of the decor. The bathrooms could do with updating and look worn and tired but the biggest let down was that the bed was so hard. It put us off booking this hotel again for our later return night in Hong Kong, However in hindsight we should have booked this hotel again, we chose another hotel as a review on trip advisor had said they had comfy beds but they were just the same so we ended up taking a taxi back to Knutsford Terrace again for dinner.

The hotel has free wifi and the breakfast selection was very good

We spent a couple of nights in Hong Kong on our way to NZ, Stanford Hillview Hotel provided comfort, good service, great food and location. Although the bathroom was very small the bedroom was a decent size especially with there being three of us.

This place is a wonderful choice for everyone who wants to enjoy authentic Hong Kong nightlife and experience infinite shopping occasions. Just around the corner lays Knutsford terrace with a vats choice of excellent restaurants and some of the best clubs in Hong Kong. Even though its central location, Stanford hillview offers a great getaway of the busy Hong Kong streets and 24/7 society. the rooms have wonderful interior and offer a very pleasant, comfortable atmosphere. The beds are very comfortable as well and offer enough room even for tall people. Staff speaks excellent English and is happy to help out in any matter. If someone doesn't feel like taking the short way uphill to get to the entrance, one can simply use the elevator in the garage located at the end of Knutsford terrace. Overall a wonderful stay in this hotel and the best of it's kind I have experienced in Hong Kong so far. Definetely worth the money.
