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 Location

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 Β & 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 Room

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 MaΒ 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 Β 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

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!

    Wow, these rooms are gorgeous! Love how everything looks so modern and clean … and you can’t beat that view of the South China Sea! I actually love that the hotel is in the New Territories and away from the hustle bustle of Hong Kong. We enjoy placing ourselves a bit out of the city in each place we visit so we can aim for a more local and relaxed feel after having soaked in the intensity of the city during the day πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the review!

    This hotel looks awesome and the location looks even more awesome. How was the pool and how did you enjoy Disney?

    It sounds fantastic, and I especially like that it’s close to HKD, as no doubt our trip will see us going to Disneyland. πŸ™‚

    Looks like a great hotel, love how close it is to the beach and that it’s a bit tucked away! I would love to visit Hong Kong one day.

    I wish I had know about this hotel before my trip to Hong Kong! It looks really beautiful and calm, something that can make a real difference in such a busy city – I will remember it for my next trip for sure

    Location is so key and it seems like this hotel isn’t necessarily in the city center but also very accessible to the center. Did this hotel feel very western by any chance? I liked that they had a shuttle bus service, super convenient also!

    You got me at the beaches! I’m there! Seriously, we loved Hong Kong and intend to return, but the last hotel we stayed in wasn’t worth writing about so it’s great to read such a wonderful review for when we do return! With the excellent transport system in HK, this sounds like the perfect place (did I mention I loved the fact it was next to a beach?!) Thanks for sharing.

      The high point was definitely the beach and our room with the ocean view was amazing. You are right, the MTR makes commuting so easy.

  10. Kelly Turpin Reply

    It sure looks like a beautiful place to stay. I am hoping I’ll get there one day. Hong Kong is on our bucket list.

    Looks like an impressive hotel. The room looks nice and spacious with some wonderful views. Will keep this in mind if I get a chance to head to Hong Kong.

  12. Marge Gavan Reply

    It must have been really expensive, by the looks of it alone. But I wouldn’t mind paying though if my hotel room is as beautiful as that and I can look at that magnificent view. Looks like it’s worth every penny.

    • Voyager Post authorReply

      It was not expensive. It was within our budget and we got a deal too while booking!

    This looks like pure luxury! I just want to jump on that bed! And what an amazing view to wake up to!

    Great views! I love Hong Kong – will have to check this place out next time I visit

    Steam, sauna AND a pool…I’m in! It looks modern, sleek and spotless. The hotel is a perfect place for some relaxation!

    Jacuzzi will never fail you! Of course! haha
    love the hotel and every part of it! Must be expensive
    tho but I think it’s all worth every single bucks! Xx Good stay!

    Seems like a central and comfortable hotel. One that definitely is required after a long day on your feet.

  19. Elizabeth @ Compass & Fork Reply

    I’ve never considered staying in the New Territories. We usually stay over in the thick of things. But with the MTR, this would be a good option! I have piined it for later.

    • Voyager Post authorReply

      Well, this is a new hotel and as it has shuttle service to MTR, you can definitely consider staying.

    The last time I was in Hongkong, we stayed at a hostel. Would definitely like to take a look and stay at luxury accommodation the next time I go there. Planning to go back for Disneyland so i”ll def consider the Royal View. Thanks for this!

    • Voyager Post authorReply

      Wow! This hotel is affordable and glad you would be going to Disneyland. We loved it.

  21. Kate Barbosa Reply

    Thank you for this. I’ll be in Hong Kong again and I think that would be our time to try a hotel far from the busy streets of HK.

  22. Colby Reply

    This hotel looks absolutely incredible! I mean, those views, you can beat it! I’ll have to keep this place in mind whenever I make my way to HK.
