This holiday inn location is good but for the tourists the hotel is not that competitive with hotels in other area. By the way, the breakfast is not buffet!

My stay gives me happy experience at this Holiday Express. The staff are most hospitable. True value for your money! Why spend more money on others across the harbor where staff are haughty and impersonal?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Maccliff Clean Rooms BUT poor quality breakfast
This is a hotel that I have stayed and frequented since 2007. Back then the front counter staff were extremely courteous. There was even a Filipino staff who spoke fluent Cantonese and English. (She gave us great advice on the best shops and places to go to!). In 2013, I stayed twice at the hotel, in Spring and Winter. The Spring stay with my family (we booked 2 rooms) was not as good. The front counter staff was abrupt, brush and the only vocab she knows was the word "no...no....no". The recent (winter) was slightly better. The housekeeping crew have kept the rooms cleaned. But somehow the rooms needs to be updated. The rooms still feature a CRT TV! The other area that has severely deteriorated is the breakfast. It is not surprising to find the locals not finishing their breakfast! The local offering of meat bun does not even taste anywhere near the meat buns at the local tea house. The milk was served on jugs that there cracked. The worst part is that unfinished milk jugs were moved from table to table as I suspect the serving staff did not want to see the unfinished milk thrown away. Perhaps, they could have filled half a jug of milk in the first place!
Having stayed there for 4 days, the breakfast quality could be improved. The Bread and Ham option is really terrible - the bread is served "stale", probably left in the open (uncovered) for more than 30 minutes. I have remove the ham from the bread and ate the ham only. The tea could have been stronger. It taste like water and brown ink. I would not recommend any eateries at the hotel and to take your breakfast at the local teahouse.
Although a little pricey, and besides the outdated interior and bad food, I would still recommend the hotel for those who wants a convenient location in Hong Kong.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dini703 Clean good maintained room
We stayed in this hotel from 26-29 Nov 2013. Eventhough the room is meant for maximum 3 persons, the reservation staff is kind enough to allow my family of 2 adults and 2 children (aged 5 & 4) to stayed in a room with double bed and a sofa bed. Our room on the 11th floor is rather small but clean and well maintained. Generally quiet eventhough the window is facing the road and Times Square. Maybe it's time for the TV to be upgraded to thin screen to give extra space.
Being a muslim tourists, the location of the hotel is good. It is just about 10 minutes walk to a nearby mosque with a canteen that sell good chinese food. Along the way to the mosque, we came across a small stall selling halal pizza and a restaurant selling halal kebab. On the opposite side, Times square and Causeway Bay MTR is just about a minute walk. A halal indian restaurant is very near to the Times Square.

My family and I stayed at this location during the week of Thanksgiving 2013. The location is great! You can easily get to the subway, the market and shops. This hotel is directly across the street from Times Square. However, the rooms are very small. It was my husband, our 17 year old, our 5 month old and myself. It was very difficult for all of us to move around at once. We each had luggage and the baby stroller, I had to be very creative to make room for us to get around. Also, the sofa bed is not really a sofa bed, that part is misleading. It is really a sofa mat, because to sofa folds out to the floor, not an actual sofa bed. When I went to front desk to change rooms, the front desk staff indicated that was the largest room they had. We would have upgraded to a suite for the comfort. The bathroom was also pretty small, really...only one person at a time. The water didn't get too hot either. We received hotter water at our table when we went out to dinner at restaurants than when we were in the room. However, the breakfast was pretty good and the staff in the resturant were very, very nice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MaxCK Ok Service but Poor Food Hygiene
This is my 2nd stay and I like the location of hotel which is fantastic. Room amenities is quite basic and essential. I had not taken the hotel breakfast on my previous trip as my friend said it isn't nice. This trip, I took the breakfast with my wife and on both mornings, we found strand of hair in our food which turns us off.

We stayed in this hotel from 19th - 22nd November and it was really a great expérience. The location is excellent just next to Times square and we easily got early check in which was a great gesture from hotel staff.
The room was clean and equipped with nice snd comfy beds, bathroom was nice and clean as well. The best part is free wifi in room, my only recommendation is to start providing buffet breakfast snd LCD/LED TV in room.

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.

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.

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.
