“There is no better place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

We could not recommend this hotel enough. From the moment you walk through the door you are greeted with friendly staff who, throughout our stay, went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after. Nothing was ever a problem and they were very helpful when it came to booking day excursions. Without our knowledge, they suprised my partner with a birthday cake, card and bottle of wine on his birthday! This made his day. It is the personal touch they add to your stay that makes your time in Hong Kong memorable. Thank you to Agnes and her team for everything. We will definitely be back and be recommending your hotel to anyone who visits your lovely city!

Room Tip: The rooms facing Causeway Bay had magnificent views.

We upgraded our room to one that faced the racetrack and included breakfast and wifi which was a worthwhile upgrade. The room was clean and average in size, bed comfortable, free bottled water every day, decent sized washroom but small shower.
The breakfast was very good with a good selection of food to choose from.
The staff were very helpful and pleasant.
If you want to go to the racetrack it is a great location.
Otherwise it is a twenty minute walk to restaurants on Queens Rd. East or fifteen minutes to the Times Square area. Since Hong Kong has such a fabulous transit system, getting places isn't a problem but there are other hotels with a more central location.
This isn't a big issue for many people but if you want to have a drink in the hotel bar there isn't one and it is a bit of a walk to get to one. Yes the Cosmo hotel next door has a "lounge" which they set up every day but I never saw anyone in there and it left a lot to be desired.

Room Tip: The higher the quieter.

Dear John,

It’s really great to know that you find the limited time room upgrade offer that comes with breakfast and wifi worthy with just little extra cost! We believe you had an enjoyable stay at Cosmopolitan with our well-appointed guestroom and thoughtful amenities. While the Happy Valley racecourse is located right beside our hotel, most of our guestrooms not only offer the amazing view over the greenery of racecourse, but also a good place to watch the live horse racing on every Wednesdays!

On the other hand, with its convenient location amid the busiest shopping and business districts – Causeway Bay and Wan Chai, public transports are readily available at the doorsteps while our free shuttle service can also bring guests towards 15 major destinations including Causeway Bay subway station, Times Square and many other attractions in Wan Chai, Admiralty and Central etc. Yet, if guests prefer to explore the city on foot, it’s only an 8-minute walk towards the nearest Causeway Bay subway station with an array of local restaurants and bars on the way. Having said that, our 3T bar located in the lobby is operated daily for a quick drink. We hope by next time you could also try the award-winning drinks at the Nooch Bar at our sister property, Cosmo Hotel next door. Look forward to welcoming you back soon!

The hotel has a very good staff, great location. The only caveat is that the normal rooms are extremely small. There is also a construction going on in a nearby lot, so it can be loud and disturbing during the day.

The rooms looking towards the horse race track are much larger, better view and quieter. Would definitely recommend these rooms.

No free wifi in the room, but they do offer free wifi at the lobby.

it is about 10 mins walking distance to the nearest MRT causeway bay, and the hotel provides shuttle bus if you prefer not to walk. The room looks new, and the beds are comfy. Hotel staffs are friendly and extremely helpful, they tried to fulfil every of the requests we made. One of the staff even gave out very cute teddy bears to FIVE kids in my family which really made up their day!

Good view from the room over Happy Valley from the upper floors comfortable and spacious room.
Complementary transport links very useful but also convenient for the trams and the MTR from Causeway Bay.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
There is an additional cost for the internet service although there was free WIFI in the lobby.
The bed and breakfast package was good value

Room Tip: Book one of the upper floors with nice views
