Stayed in Cityview on 31 Dec at an exorbitant rate (but then everywhere is exorbitant on that day). Chose Cityview mainly due to the location, direct airport express shuttle as well as Ladies Street being right at the corner. However, rooms seems to be a tad dated. They still had the console thing between the beds. With a makeover, I...

Booked for a total of 6 nights stay at Cityview. Despite a rather rude and bad experience encountered during check in, my stay was made better by the understanding Asst Front Office Manager Mr Wong who went all the way to ensure that I had a good stay. Chose to stay at the new Executive Wing if you can as...

There was a promotional price on Booking dot com, so Cityview was where we stayed for 3 nights. Location is excellent, literally just 2 minutes walk from the MTR (look for the correct exit). We stopped by the 7-11 across the street, every night, to grab some snacks on the way back. So convenient. Good walking distance to lots of...

The rooms (sitting room, bedroom and bathroom with bath and shower) were spacious, modern and clean. It was a late booking so was not cheap (over HKD 4,150 for one night) and it was therefore a bit of a 'kick in the teeth' to be charged a further HKD 120 to use the internet. It was also disappointing that the...

We all know room size in HK is quite small compare to other travel destinations. Since I actually stayed in 3 different hotels this time, I can tell you this is the best price for room size, style and convenience. Size: The basic room is tight but allows you plenty of room to open your luggage. Style: They just recently...

1 min from the MTR station is not a lie. Easy to find, and near to late night food and shops.This hotel is cheap and good. The rooms are not very small and they are clean.

The Cityview is a very good hotel for a visit to Hong Kong, primarily due to its great location - two minutes from the MTR station. The rear hotel entrance is also thirty seconds from a great laundry right across the street where one can have laundry done daily at a really low cost, but this does not include ironing...

We have stayed at Cityview many times, in fact every time we come back to Hong Kong. It has almost been like our home away from home. We enjoyed the facility, the restaurants and especially seeing the old faces, like Ming Lee (the bell captain). Although nothing super fancy, Cityview has always given us a clean and comfortable room with...

Given the value of hotel in Hong Kong, this hotel room is relatively large for the price paid. Great location as it's near the exit of the MTR exit A2 (instead of exit D as seen on Google map), there's lots of eateries around hence, no worries when you're hungry. It's near the famous "Women" Street but as a frequent...

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
