“Good location and very good location”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

Far enough away from the waterfront to be in a quiter location but 1 minute from the Ya Ma Tei MTR (tube) station and only a six minute ride to Central Station on Hong Kong Island. This makes this spacious and airy hotel very good value for money. Walk outside the door and you're in the hustle and bustle of the real Hong Kong. If you want a double room, make sure you stress that fact. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: South facing tower rooms have an excellent view over the city if you get high up ie 20th floor or ab...

This was our first trip to Hong Kong and we are planning another. We found this hotel had excellent customer service. They were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. The rooms were clean and size was good for three adults. It was easy to get to the mtr only two minutes away and the markets were two blocks away.

This hotel is located in close proximity of Nathan Road, which at night is always bustling with people shopping, eating, etc... If you arrive after 9PM it will be hard to find a place to eat (unless you like fast food), as a lot of the restaurants there are closing. If you are in transit, it may take some time to get to the hotel (depending on traffic) so if you are in a rush to get to the airport early I suggest you choose a hotel closer to the airport. Apart from that you'll get a great hotel. One last tip is if you choose this hotel book online, if you book at the airport it will cost you more.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same, but if you like a view (other then buildings) ask for a room facing the othe...

For the price, I thought this was a great hotel. I was afraid the room would be very small after reading many reviews, however was pleasantly surprized that the room was good sized. The restroom area was smaller, and the closet for lugage wase not bigenough for me to lay my carry-on suitcase down in it, but there was a jack that I could put in the room for the suitcase, and still have pleanty of room to walk arround.

The location was very good, only a few minutes walk to the Metro subway, we did not use the bus from the hotel. Also there were many places to eat nearby and a few small convienance stores.

The only down side was there was a firestation nearby, and sometimes you would hear the trucks going to calls.

Traveler tip. When in Hong Kong, buy an Octopus card from Metro. You can ride busses and the subway much cheaper and not need to look for change for tickets. There is a deposit for the cards, but you get that back with any remaining ballance from the card.

The Cityview is a reasonably good hotel. Not great, but not bad either. It does offer some things worth considering. Probably most importantly is the location. It is literally half a block away from the Yau Ma Tei MRT subway station, and one block back from Nathan Road. I found this very convenient from transferring to/from the airport, and for using the MRT to get around Hong Kong. The rooms are small, even after being graciously upgraded to an executive room. I think the size is probably generous by Hong Kong standards though. The furnishings were modern, and the bathroom was particularly well styled with modern tiles and glass. I found the front desk staff to be friendly and polite. Overall, for the price, this hotel is fine, and I would probably stay again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade to executive room. Ones facing away from busy Nathan Road might also help cut noise...
