Kowloon hotel, Hong Kong review

So I’ve shared my lowdown on what to do in Hong Kong, now here’s my unairbrushed review of where we stayed…

While we had decadent luxury in Bangkok courtesy of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, we wanted a bargain city crash pad for Hong Kong.
However, upon booking we realised that like many European stays, money doesn’t go very far in Hong Kong.
We managed to get a stay the Kowloon Hotel, which was perfectly situated on Kowloon Island, within walking distance of the shopping malls, Temple Street Market and the ferry which transported to the neighbouring islands.
But upon arrival, we thought we’d hit the jackpot as the car rolled right to the hotel front and a member of staff greeted us at the door.
The lobby was stunning with a glass lit ceiling.

However, sadly the grandeur ended there. Our room was small and basic, similar to the hotel we stayed at in Paris.

There was no complimentary wifi, and there wasn’t much of a view.
However this was made up for by the convenience of the place.
So while it was a slightly cramped crash pad, it was an ideal base from which to explore Hong Kong and all it had to offer.
