Holiday Inn Express Causeway Bay (Hong Kong, China)

4 Case Rating


Location

Located from a 5-10 minutes walk from MTR Causeway Bay station , so long you exit at Time Square mall- Exit A. Whilst this hotel is opposite Time Square Mall, the metro has long walk ways & escalators from actual train. From airport it takes about 30 minutes to Hong Kong station, if you arrive late at night a Taxi will charge around 45HKG- it makes it more easier especially with large cases. Otherwise its 3 stops to Hong Kong Island via the MTR.
Around hotel is a huge mall, many restaurants, boutique shops, bars and Wan Chai is about 15 minutes walk away. Everything you need in a city is close by.

Room

The room on the 29th floor, the highest floor as requested (at no extra charge) offers a nice view of the concrete jungle below.

The room is very functional – offering a comfortable bed that offers side reading lights, soft and firm pillows of your choice (labelled that way). Bedside tables each side, one of which offers a plug and other has an alarm clock with lightning cable for all up to date I phone users. There is a small safe below for things like money and passport- not big enough for laptops.

There is almost floor to ceiling Windows offering a great view, which offers a working desk next to it, with LAN cable, 2 handy plug adaptors, lamp and a phone. Opposite is a small sofa great for watching the city from the view.
The room also offers a small LCD TV with about 42 channels that include local, Australian, BBC, US and Chinese channels- quite comprehensive selection.

There is also a wardrobe with a few coat hangers & a small empty refrigerator inside. Two bottle waters are offered complimentary in the bathroom. Plus a portable luggage rack. The decor is colourful but not that innovative. AC is old style dial and switch but worked fine.

The bathroom is quite poky but toilets does have its own door. There is a shower cubicle with dispenser soap and rather than have shampoo or body lotion they have dental kits, plus soaps and shower caps.
Overall the room couldn’t be faulted for the business traveller looking for value for money. I slept very well and enjoyed the view.

Facilities

There is free open un-secure WIFI for multiple devices which worked satisfactory.
Business facilities included an Internet corner which has 2-3 Windows computers and one Apple . Free to use to look at internet but obviously printing and copying is chargeable. There is also meeting room and a self- serviced ironing room.

Catering includes a free breakfast selected from a menu with 2 choices for westerners and 2 Chinese & 1 vegetarian from a set menu (see photo). This is in a sort of trying to be French restaurant. Food is ok but quite constrictive compared to a simple buffet.

There is also vending machines in the lobby. Within actual building though there are other restaurants though not part of hotel but area outside has many choices.

There are no leisure facilities such as a small gym.

Staff

Staff at reception are helpful though lack enthusiasm but that’s HK in general. The restaurant manager is an interesting force to be reckoned with – he is ok. He wasn’t impressed when I requested lemons for my sore throat but to be fair he did oblige.

Overall nice hotel, cannot fault the room. Good location, quiet with a street across with nice bars and restaurants. I would stay here again, it just a shame it doesn’t offer a gym or some leisure facilities.
