The Cityview

Hong Kong, Asia and Far East

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. 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.

We visited during February so a difficult time for Hong Kong due to the virus. When we arrived we found we were allocated rooms on the 20th floor- fantastic views. As very few people staying in the hotel breakfast was not the usual buffet instead we ordered food off the menu, all very fresh and cooked to order. Not what we would want but totally understandable. Shame that the cafe, bar and swimming pool was closed. Our rooms were great very spacious with really comfortable bed and good sized bathroom. Very clean . Location was good with shop and bakery nearby, around 40 minutes walk to harbor down Nathan Road. When happily return if in Hong Kong again. Read less

Everything was according to my expectations. The rooms were clean and spacious for HKG standards and the location is very good, less than a minute away from an MTR station and with a bus stop right in front of it.

Value for money hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Could have more meal options in their room service menu. Lovely channels on television, but would have been nicer if there was tv programs for children as the WIFI for the tv did not work.

I have stayed in this hotel a few times in the past so I knew that some room sizes are really small. Therefore I decided to upgrade my room to executive floor with greater room size by paying a little bit extra. The executive room size is acceptable though not spacious.

I have stayed in this hotel a few times in the past so I knew that some room sizes are really small. Therefore I decided to upgrade my room to executive floor with greater room size by paying a little bit extra. The executive room size is acceptable though not spacious. However this is normal by Hong Kong standard. Good points: convenient location as it is within walking distance to Yaumati MTR station, most facilities are included including safety box, small fridge, small sitting area, both restaurants are serving good food. Minus points: close to a fire station so it can be noisy at night. Read less
