We all had a fabulous weeks stay at this hotel and was a convenient base for our sightseeing. Pro’s The tower city view rooms were lovely and airy, I would say clothes storage other than hanging clothes was minimal, but the bed was huge and comfortable. The room was very clean and maintained that way. The location of the hotel meant the views of the harbour and the city were amazing, access to the MTR very easy and the staff were extremely professional and helpful. Cons. First, when we arrived, checking was soo busy we were told to take a ticket and wait in a holding area till our number was called, an additional 40 minute wait having started our journey 19 hours previous wasn’t great. I understand that it was China’s Labour Day and start of their week break, but it was a slow process. Secondly the hotel did some electrical work overnight which meant the power went off, all well and good as most people were asleep, however the air con went off, the clock and alarm powered off and worse the emergency lighting came on ( as it should) but lit up the room so sleep was practically impossible! Third, I understand Hong Kong’s ‘Go Green Sustainability Practice’ which states, According to Hong Kong Government’s new law, "Product Eco-responsibility (Amendment) Bill 2023", effective from 22nd April 2024, hotels are not allowed to provide disposable toiletries and in-room plastic bottled water to guests for free, but can be provided upon request at a charge. However I do think a 5 star luxury hotel could provide refillable glass bottles in rooms as opposed to nothing. Fourth , their coffee shop/ bar shut at 8.30 That sounds like a lot of cons but I’d give this 4.5 out of 5 if possible… the hotel can’t help that we arrived on Labour Day and were manic, the electrical testing I assume was a very infrequent event ( could have been done during the day though instead for minimal disruption. I bought water at the 7-eleven to sort point 3 and I don’t drink alcohol so the lack of bar wasn’t an issue, but a latte after a long day would have been nice 😊 Read less

We had stayed 2 months at a seaview room at Harbour Grand Kowloon since our stay last April to June. For some reasons, there was always a bumpy start upon arrival but got sorted quickly ever time. We were glad to see the Residents Lounge had become what it was supposed to be instead of overtaking by ineligible hotel guests and outsiders as a busy meeting venue. Also, special thanks to one of the lounge's staff, Connie who always sorted out issues in an efficient, professional and assertive manner. She chatted with guests and created a friendly atmosphere and ”neighbourhood" at this lounge among guests. Well done her! Our chamber maid Yuki had also done an excellent job in cleaning our room. We saw her constantly run off her feet but also would not hestitate assisting guests on issues out of her job responsibilities. She even made my husband to use his key card to open our room to ensure his identity when he went back whilst she was cleaning our room. A true hotel asset. Concierge team was always helpful and polite. The boys were under excellent team leadership and were very motivated and proud of what they were doing. A great team.  Reception was more welcoming this time. Maybe they were under stressed or too focussed on what they were doing during our last visit. There was always a queue days and nights. We joked once to one of them you finally had no guest standing in front of you. We all laughted and said maybe for 10 minutes. That was on the 3rd week of our stay. Besides hotel's location of easy access to public transport, the great seaview room, we enjoyed our stay was really due to the hotel's staff. We felt very much like from home to home. We would like to make some suggestions for improvement if we could. 1. Can the gym/ spa / swimming facilities be charged by per visit if free access is not possible? This is important to most long stay's guests and many of us were disappointed about this complimentary facility had been taken away with a substantial rent increase. 2. Glass window of room may need a good clean ss suggested by other guest. 3. Chamber maid may need a long duster to go around the aircon vents and wall corners where dust was accumulated. Guest room maintained dusty even we wiped over the table and window sills ourselves everyday. Anyhow, we had a lovely stay and would not hesitate to stay again in a heartbeat. Read less

Wonderful stay! We enjoyed our 3 nights at this hotel very much. Our rooms provided a lovely harbour view though the glass needed cleaning on the outside. The room was modern and spacious and had all the amenities we required. Unfortunately the pool area was closed. The concierge staff were lovely and very helpful on many occasions. We enjoyed having our breakfasts in the corner Cafe overlooking the harbour. We used taxis and ferry easily to explore different areas of the city. Walking along the water in the evening felt very safe. We enjoyed strolling the nearby shopping area on our last morning. I would definitely recommend and return again. Read less

We had a First Class Flight with British Airways for our FINAL farewell to Hong Kong. We stayed in our favourite Hotel, the Harbour Grand Kowloon for fifteen nights, and thanks to the duty manager KELVIN we were allocated a room that reflected our fifteen night stay, and allowed us to unpack our three large suitcases with ample storage space. The room was large enough to accommodate my lady's stroller, and electric mobility scooter. Nothing seemed to trouble Kelvin, and he kept a friendly eye on us during our stay. To you Kelvin, THANK YOU for making our stay PERFECT. To Andy and Ringo in the Club Lounge, thank you both for making our visits enjoyable in what I can only describe as a VERY DOWN GRADED CLUB LOUNGE. Pre Covid, it was a wonderful lounge to have a enjoyable relaxed breakfast, afternoon tea ,and various liquid refreshments with snacks in the evening. The lounge then was well used by most club members. Not this time, no breakfast available in the club lounge, limited wine selection of one red and one white, no spirits, and very disappointing snacks. However thanks to Andy and Ringo, we and the few guests who used the lounge. were all made very welcome and well looked after. Our compliments to the manager of the buffet breakfast .I apologise for NOT remembering his name but he assisted my wife in obtaining her breakfast on day one and the other two occasions we broke our fast there. Its a great pity that some of the BOOKING WEB Sites still advertise breakfast as being available in the club lounge, including what looks very much like the hotel's own site. However, thanks to Kelvin ,Andy and Ringo, the guys on the door, and the concierge team, we at 81 and 77 years young, did have a good time on our very last visit to our favourite place on the planet, HONG KONG . Thank you All. PS. The hotel limo is excellent well worth the cost to and from the airport. If you are in any way disabled, or have lack of mobility, the hotel will arrange for the limo to be met at the airport, where you and your luggage are escorted to the relevant check in desk.
