The Cityview

Hong Kong, China

The hotel

The Cityview knows its audience. In one of the world’s most dynamic metropolises, this urban outpost delivers the slick city styling, high-tech touches, handy hotel features, and ‘centre-of-everything’ location every discerning international traveller’s after. Bang-on-trend, you’re greeted by a living plant wall that sets the tone of this modern downtown Kowloon hotel, with other contemporary creature comforts including complimentary calls back to the UK and a free smartphone with unlimited 3G internet access while you stay. While the styling, fitness zone, and international buffet may feel reassuringly familiar, the Cantonese cuisine of The Balcony and Thai tastes of Amazing (served under a plant-draped pergola for that ‘al fresco dining’ feel), give an exciting flavour of the East – one backed up by its location in the entertainment and shopping district, just steps from Yau Ma Tei subway station and near Hong Kong’s famous markets.

Great Location! Clean rooms! 1 minute walk to the MTR and easy to get around to places. Will definitely be back again! Staff was helpful too! Bed was comfortable and room size was okay too. There is a 7 Eleven just around the corner.

This was right around the corner from where relatives lived so it was very convenient to meet up with them, also the location was very close to everything. We stayed here on two separate occasions within the same trip and had two different rooms. The first one was great and the second one was pretty much the same except for there was a door that could lead in to the room next over which would be great for a family, but for us it allowed for sound to travel for the people next door. We were able to hear them coughing and talking, and just would have preferred to have a little bit more privacy. The lobby was beautiful and the check in and out process was very straightfoward. They also have great restaurants inside the hotel! Read less

We love the location (so near Yau Ma Tei MTR and near Nathan Road). We enjoyed the clean and modern room. Price is just right and we even got a free room upgrade courtesy of Ms Joy Ho (Thank you). The hotel room is eco friendly and situated beside YMCA.

Stayed 5 nites. Would have given it 5stars for the good stay if not for the lousy checkin experience having to re-queue to be issued a room key by unfriendly male spectacled staff when the checkin papers was done an hour prior to room ready. Time wasted to join the main queue in the hot lobby with new customers registering checkin taking a lot of time. Plus unfairness when a prc customer making a fuss when ask to re-queue was given a room key without having to re-queue! Re-queue was attended by a friendly male staff though. Room is clean and pleasant but noises outside the room can be heard clearly, can even hear next door tv sound too. Read less
