Royal View Hotel Hong Kong: A Laid Back Hotel in a Laid Back environment

For my first time in Hong Kong, my mom and I stayed in this hotel. It is a beautiful,comfy and quiet hotel. Far from the busy and bustling streets of Hong Kong.

Here is my review from my Tripadvisor account:

Well, we stayed here on August 21-23, 2009, it was booked by our travel agent.

The room were we stayed in was amazing, the bathroom is nice and clean and its pretty. As a matter of fact, It’s like a studio type apartment except for the dining area. There is a sink and a lot of cabinet; i really loved the design and it was really cozy.

If you want to stay in a cozy hotel then this one is for you however you will take a lot of time going to the city (but it’s also a good thing to try stuff like riding their MTR and going to the outskirts of Hong Kong). Moreover, the view here is good, it’s serene and it is far from the loud noises from the city. When you stay here, you can really feel that you’re on a vacation.

The staff is not that good, some of them doesn’t speak English, the concierge staff (the old man there) is so much discriminating especially for Filipinos. The front desk staff is good but will make you wait (especially for check-in)¬† but it’s okay since they’re friendly.

Well, for those who intend to get a set breakfast from the hotel (if you registered in a travel agency and sees that you will have a ‘breakfast outside’ or set breakfast, especially from a Philippine travel agency), beware since your menu will be just be bread, beans and sausages, however for the buffet, its just like buffet breakfast in any other hotel– But with limited choices. Corridors in this hotel is not airconditioned; so dont get irritated if it’s hot in there.

If you went to the city center (Kowloon or HK Island), dont forget to buy water as well as food, since there’s no convenience store nearby and these goods are expensive if you’ll buy it in their mini bar. Food in the restaurant (ala carte) is also expensive, so just hop on the complimentary shuttle bus that goes (I think) every 15 minutes, going to the nearest MTR station, where you can dine without getting your wallet cry.

I haven’t tried calling the front desk for any problems (like lack of towel or supplies inside the room) and I haven’t tried their room service so I cannot really comment about that. But overall our stay here is amazing; since I really loved the room.

Well, I recommend this hotel if you’re “okay” traveling to and from the main city and if you want some serene place out of the noisy streets of Hong Kong…the rooms are nicely decorated and clean

BUT

if you are a tourist with a very limited time and you are planning to go a lot of tourist sights then this in not a good place to stay since traveling to and fro this place is really time consuming.

Nevertheless, this hotel has a nice view of the longest suspension bridge in the world (Tsing Ma Bridge).
