Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by almondjelly Spacious room with good location
First of all, this hotel's location is great, although the walk to the nearest Causeway Bay MTR station is not that near (the tunnel walk in the subway is quite long from Times Square#. For a shopaholic, you probably do not need to go many places else for your shopping needs anyway. Everything you are looking for, should be available in CWB, and within walking distance to this hotel.
The room was certainly spacious by Hong Kong standards. Plenty of space to walk about and put your luggage bags. In terms of cleanliness, I would still say it is of average standards, because the toilet did have some stains. Otherwise, it is actually pretty good.
Basic toiletries were provided, and everything worked fine in the room, except the TV, where we kept seeing lines and some jumping images on the local channels.
Not sure if it was because we were staying in the last room of the floor, the cleaning of the room was done rather late for our room. The chamber maid came around 4pm-5pm, and we have never encountered room cleaning that takes place so late in our experience. Because we usually like to put down some of our shopping in the room around that time and take a rest before heading out for dinner, this presented some inconvenience to us.
I was also rather disappointed with the treatment as a IHG Platinum member, because there did not appear to be any perks, except a welcome pack of drinks and snacks. There was no complimentary newspaper for me when I saw some other guests had newspaper hanging by their door knob.
I do understand that the Holiday Inn Express line of hotels are more basic compared to the other higher end ones #like the Crowne Plaza) I have stayed in.
So, overall, I will still say that the stay was pleasant. It is basic as its price tag suggests.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Staph Location
Hotel location is good; right across Times Square. However; as it is on a side street; taxis are not that frequent. But there is a taxi queue at Times Square. It is a fair bit of walk to get to the mrt station or the ferry terminal. Rooms are very dated (very college dormesque) and in desperate need of an upgrade. The breakfast choices are also very limited. For the price; I would explore other options. But holiday Inn express Causeway Bay would be an ok 5th or 6th choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Milovecko Simply all you need.,
This hotel have just everything basic that you need, especially if you really come to hong kong only for shopping. Room and bathroom are very clean. Staffs are very nice. Check in very fast. All are express.
And i looovveee the location, it's exactly across the time square. Actually on the other side, there is a night market, but i didnt realize as i only spent a nite in hongkong. I ll stay in this hotel again for my shopping trip to hong kong next time... Very recommended!
Point of improvement: TV and more space for double bed please.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tcrazrbaks Nice room and great service
I was scheduled to stay 2 weeks, but had to extend it for 2 more. The staff was great to work with me and worked with me to keep the same room at still a great price. The room was a decent size and the bed was comfortable. The only issue I had was the internet connection was not very strong. I talked to the front desk about it and they were happy to help and provide me with a router in my room to help the strength. After that, I didn't have any problems. I was on the 27th floor, so that might have been the reason. I would definitely stay here again.

Location is good, service is good, room is clean, bed is comfortable. The only problem experienced this time was that there was strong smell from the toilet even though the toilet was very clean. I stayed in this hotel before, this was the first time I experienced such a problem.

We always stay here whenever we're in HK. The hotel is very accessible to the market and the mtr, there's a mall across the street! The members of the staff are very polite and efficient especially the people at the front desk. Thank you Holiday Inn Express, we'll return for sure!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by janefwy83 1 of my Favourite Hotel in HK
I love this hotel for it's good location and it has most of the basic in-room facilities that 1 would need.
Room size is considered reasonable for HK hotel standard.
Clean, simple and comfortable rooms which is good enough for someone like me who is in HK just to eat, shop and visit friends, where I don't require any room service, gym, and etc.
Breakfast, there's room for improvement though, but that isn't an issue to me as there's too many yummy food in HK to explore.
I have stayed in this hotel for at least 5 times or more and I'm sure I will be returning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Twy85 A great stay!
The hotel has an excellent location of being next just to the Time Square and the Causeway Bay metro station. Hence it is really handy to explore various attractions this city has to offer from here!
As a platinum member, I was recognized and offered welcome gift upon arrival. The breakfast provides four options (Western/Chinese/Hong Kong/Vegetarian style) and I've tried three of them and they are actually quite OK.
I will choose this property again should I return to Hong Kong for the next time.

I've stayed at this Hong Kong hotel several times over the years. It's extremely well located with great access to MTR, Convention Centers, Shopping, Dining, entertainment...all literally across the street. MTR gets you anywhere in HK or Kowloon quickly and inexpensively.
Though the staff changes from year to year, they are consistently among the best of any hotel I stay at worldwide, including those which are more expensive.
There were numerous, and unexpected occasions on this recent trip where I needed assistance with directions, transportation, dining, telcom issues, items inadvertently left behind at checkout and more. Without fail, this team handled all my requests promptly and seamlessly. Special appreciation to Mr. Kwong (GM#, Ms. Chu #Asst. Mgr.# and Mr. Chung #Reception), all of whom who made my time in HK comfortable and productive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gazman63 Great spot to stay
We spent 7 days at the Express and found it was an excellent choice for our family , the room was large for all 4 of us although a smoking room a quick trip to the supermarket (5 min walk) to get an air freshener made it much better.The room had 1 double ,1 single and a sofa bed and plenty of room. ( room 703)
The location is excellent with everything you need no more than 5 minutes walk , if your are expecting a world class 5 star hotel look elsewhere but if you want value for money in a lovely and friendly motel look no further than here.
We read plenty of good and bad reviews of the free breakfast only to find it fine for us and didn't have a problem with it
Thanks to the staff for a lovely stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HUGOHSD A good hotel if you want to stay in IHG/Marriott brands but do not want to pay too much
I stayed here for business due to limited company budget. If for leisure this is definitely not a good place.
This HIX is located in a very great position. Time's Square is next to it, and there is a lot of choices for dinner. Subways, buses or trains are available for all directions.
Hong Kong hotels are always expensive with limited room space, while this HIX has reasonable price (around 1000 HKD per night if you book in advance). I don't think there is any other better choice if you want to stay with IHG/Marriott/Accor brands and meanwhile you do not want to pay too much for it.
Breakfast is contained as long as you stay in this hotel. There are four choices available, but since it is free of charge for hotel guests, do not expect too much from the breakfast.
The room has a musty smell. This is what I do not like. And no gym or swimming pool, which is expected because it is only HIX.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ray789 Misleading service message
After a long flight, I checked into a smoking room and was told later that the hotel was full. The front desk tried to offer a non smoking room the next day. This is what I don't understand - I booked non smoking room via web and I had to use my credit card to guarantee my reservation. Upon check in, my reservation is subject to availability. Why did you provide the option in the first place and why did you require a guarantee? This arrangement is very misleading. It was bad to deal with such matter at mid-night and magically they found a non-smoking room for me. I am confused and annoyed

Before I arrived the hotel, I read the reviews and was a bit nervous about the accomodation, internet and breakfast. After my arrival, I was quite pleased with all the services. The only thing that bothers me was the strong mildew smell in the hallway and the carpet needs a good cleaning. Otherwise, everything is satisfactory. Will come back and stay again!

I am not aware that there is no room service in the hotel and it's not stated in the website. Hence I'm quite disappointed. During my stay, I encounter T8 typhoon and need to stay in and realize there is no food but luckily I always travel with cup noodles else I will just need to stay hungry.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ratatouille Poor breakfast and insufficient care
I stay here every 2 week for 9 months already and there are some cons that it should be improved in my opinion:
* Poor and slow breakfast, making me often skip it.
* Sometimes they forget welcome gift, it's still understandable for too many guest. However, last time they even forgot my chocolate as a thankful gift.
* The fire alarm is really disturbing.
* Sometimes they forget to refill sanitary bags and water in my room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gigi2103 spacious room and near times square and MTR
Definitely will stay here again. The room was bigger than I thought. Breakfast has 4 sets. I only liked the SET A western food. Although other sets were also okay but I think there's something missing in the taste. It needs improvement. But at least there's a free breakfast so we didn't have to buy food for breakfast. The staff were friendly and speaks English.
