Review of Royal View Hotel, Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a bustling place, teeming with activity and if you are on vacation and want to stay in a quiet place but still be able to access all the hot spots of the city very conveniently, then The Royal View Hotel is THE place for you.
When we were planning our trip to Hong Kong just before Christmas, last year, we zeroed in on this hotel and did not regret our decision at all.
The Royal View hotel is relatively close to the airport and Hong Kong Disneyland and nestles between Ting Kau and Lido beaches. The hotel overlooks the South China Sea and many of the rooms offer an excellent view of the sea as well as the Tsing Ma and Ting Kau Bridge.
The environs of the Royal View Hotel are serene and one can take a leisurely walk to reach the nearby Lido beach. The hotel can be reached by a 25 minute drive from the airport which is at a distance of about 25 Kms. The cab fare came to around 200 HKD. The hotel can also arrange for airport pickup and drop on chargeable basis.
The Reception & Check In
We reached Hong Kong in the morning and were at the Hotel much before the scheduled Check In time, we were received by the staff with a smile and asked to wait in the lobby. They graciously provided us our room much before the scheduled check in time.
The Royal View hotel has a total of 688 rooms including suites. We had opted for an Ocean view room and were assigned one on the Ninth floor. As soon as we entered the room, we went to the window and pulled aside the curtains to unveil a breathtaking view of the Ocean and the Tsing Ma bridge. The room was well furnished and spacious and included all the trappings necessary for a comfortable stay. It included a comfortable king size Double bed, LCD TV, Kitchenette with Coffee Maker, Minibar, Safe, Telephone and free WIFI.
Other Hotel Amenities
- The hotel has a very nice swimming pool which is built into a landscaped garden
- Gym, Jacuzzi, Sauna and Steam Bath
- The hotel has a nice restaurant named Cafe Lido which offers a choice of International and Asian cuisines in the form of Buffet Breakfast, Tea, Lunch and Dinner
Access to Attractions and Hot Spots of Hong Kong
Though the hotel is in the New Territories and away from the hustle bustle of Hong Kong you can easily access the major hubs like Tshim Sha Sui, Victoria Harbour, Disneyland etc., from the Tsuen Wan MTR. The hotel provides a very convenient shuttle service to Tsuen Wan MTR station at 10 HKD/person. From Tsuen Wan, you can move rapidly across Hong Kong by MTR. Given a chance, we would love to go back and stay there again.
We found the hotel ideal for our stay in Hong Kong, a nice place to put up your feet and relax after a tiring day of activities in this bustling city.It is an ideal hotel for families and budget friendly too!
