This was the last hotel in our China Hong Kong tour. Good functional hotel. Clean, compact room. Free WiFi, first connections with outside world for a while! Close to bars and restaurants that ate reasonably priced. Close to all Kowloon's attractions and a walk from the harbour. We extended our stay by one night whilst there and found it reasonably priced. Fully recommend.
After three nights on Hong Kong Island the West Hotel was booked for nights number 4 and 5. Easy to get to as I hopped on the MTR at Central Station and 3 stops later I had passed under the harbor and arrived at Jordan Station. Big room and my least expensive in 10 nights in Hong Kong at just over $100CDN a night. I thought it was great value for the location, rooms size and quality of the property. Check in was simple and professional and I believe I got into the room early-2nd property in a row. I think it was only an hour or so but it's still nice. Check out was also quick and painless.
LOCATION-The hotel is located in the Jordan area of Kowloon on the mainland. It is on a quiet street but only a minute or two walk from busy Jordan Road and less than 10 minutes to busier Nathan Road. I popped up out of Jordan Station on the Tsuen Wan Line MTR line and walked maybe 10-15 minutes to the hotel. More people than you might think are pulling/carrying large pieces of luggage on busy Hong Kong streets and transit and if it wasn't so crowded everywhere you can move faster. There is another MTR Station(different line)-Austin, right at Jordan Road and the side street the hotel is on and is a great option to get down to the waterfront if you don't want to walk. There are restaurants, bars and a supermarket on the street the hotel is located on as well as many adjacent streets. The Temple Street Night Market is 5 minute walk away.
There are several hotels in the neighbourhood and I noticed a lot of mainland Chinese tourists/shoppers staying at the hotel and others in the area. The high speed railway crossing over from Shenzhen(and other cities in China) terminates at West Kowloon Station with underground pathways to the Austin MTR. I suppose it is convenient to stay close to transit-local or ones that cross borders. I do the same thing. It is also close to the Airport Express at Kowloon Station which is one of the reasons I chose the property. With luggage in hand it probably took me about 30 minutes to walk from the hotel to the station in the late morning heat and humidity. At a less busy time of day with nothing in hand you can probably cut 10 minutes off that trip. All in all it was a good location, close enough to transit, food, markets without all the action/noise immediately outside the front door.
ROOM-The room was the 2nd largest I had in Hong Kong and more comparable to a hotel room you would expect in North American cities. I found it to be clean and well maintained. That said, the bathroom is a little on the small side with a smallish shower. There were basic toiletries provided including toothbrushes. There was a handheld showered option-plus, good water pressure-plus, but the shower head was a bit low when affixed to the wall-small minus. The bed was large, there was enough storage and places to hang clothes, a desk, a safe and a small fridge. They even provided a couple of bottles of water, a kettle and some tea. There was a big flat screen TV and I think there may have been the odd non-Chinese language station but I can't remember for certain. There was also password enabled Wi-Fi that worked well enough. I was on the 20th floor and there was a view of Hong Kong buildings as far as you can see. The water and some mountains/islands can also be seen in the distance. I don't know why I ask for high floors since I only look out the window occasionally and it takes much longer to go up and down the elevator each time you need to go out/return.
SERVICES-I don't think this property had any facilities other than a small 'multi-function room'-check the hotel website for a picture. Space is at a premium in Hong Kong and unless you are in a high end property spending thousands or HKD a night don't expect pools, fitness facilities, restaurants, room service etc. There was an outdoor space access from the hotel lobby with some tables and chairs to sit at and enjoy some relatively quiet outside time. It is surrounded on all sides by high rise buildings so don't expect a single ray of sunshine.
Great price, excellent service and very friendly staff. Highly recommended 👌
It’s at the center of MK and TST. 1min walk from Austin station. Foods are downstairs, Temple street night market is 7mins walk away. Will be back next time.
