“Excellent service and location”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This hotel is in a great location in midtown. Our room was large and clean. The rooftop bar was great with amazing views. Our only issue was that there was only 1 elevator working and we waited 40 minutes and eventually had to walk down from the 11th floor with our luggage. The staff, however, were amazing and handled a difficult situation very well. Juliette at the counter was friendly and professional and Harry, the doorman, provided exceptional service. I will definitely stay here again.

I have spent a lot of time in New York, and have always been underwhelmed by the hotel rooms. This hotel is the exception. I attended a conference at the Waldorf, but chose to stay at the Kimberly instead after having a few bad experiences at the Waldorf in years past. My decision was a good one.

The rooms at the Kimberly are huge. I stayed in the cheapest room available, and had a huge room, seating area, and bathroom. The room was both comfortable and extremely clean.

In addition, the rooftop bar is beautiful and the location great.

This is a smaller hotel on the east side of midtown Manhattan. Convenient location, but I was pretty underwhelmed by my stay. Staff didn't seem very friendly, elevators were slow (there is apparently no service elevator so staff are using them frequently). My room was an interesting bilevel room with a spiral staircase, but the lighting was poor, no lamp on the desk or table, no turndown service. They have a small fitness center and free passes to a large NY sports club. Overall, it was just OK, but I've had "more for less" at other NYC hotels. I was hoping for better based on other Tripadvisor reviews.

The hotel is in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui and within walking distance to the subway (TST Exit A). The place is also very accessible via Airport Express with free shuttle (K4) that will take you to the hotel from the train station. Going back to the airport, you can simply hop on a cab towards the train station or simply walk a little towards Nathan Road and take A21 bus to the airport. You may also take A21 bus from the airport to Nathan Road (Miramar Stop which is in the corner of Nathan Road and Kimberley Street) although bus ride may take you 45-55 minutes while airport express will just be around 25-30 minutes.

The hotel is also a walking distance to the Kowloon Park, Canton Road and TST promenade (Clock tower, Star Ferry Terminal, Symphony of lights every 8 pm, etc.). If you want to take a day or two in Macau, the China Ferry Terminal is also from the hotel. It's around 10-15 minute walk or a very short taxi ride from the hotel.

The room that we had is relatively ok for a standard hotel room in Hong Kong just don't compare it with other cities like Singapore because this may be considered small.

We enjoyed a free upgrade to a two bedroom apartment. It had two full bathrooms with every amenity you could want in them, a spacious living room, three huge TV's, 7 closets, and a balcony with table and chairs. Absolute paradise a couple blocks from Rockefeller Plaza. Loved the comfy beds.

These rooms were very nice. We stayed with family, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The reception staff was a little unfriendly when we arrived (but it was 11pm, and we had been traveling all day, so maybe it was us). The next day, and every day after, the staff was nothing but wonderful! Good location for us, and easy access to the subway. Nice hotel.

My sister stayed there two weeks and I stayed one night. The hotel staff is more than helpful and pleasant, any problems will be sorted in no time with a smile. Roof top bar is great, spectacular views :)

Rooms are comfortable, sleeping is great there. Definitely would recommend this hotel for staying in NY, great location.
