This hotel is not bad to stay. Location is good and the price is cheap compared to the other hotel. But the room is not big and facility is not fancy. If you'd like to stay for one or two night and you are alone and walking traveler, then it would a good choice for you. The hotel is clean even though it is not fancy. In a word, Good stay for short term and Nice location!
Only 2 nights and got a special deal and do had to pay xtra for wifi and breakfasts do probably worked out about the same rate. Good breakfast selection. Good view from 18th floor. Wifi good. Room clean. Bed very very firm and not the most comfortable, that was the worst thing but tolerable for 2 nights. Would still go back.
Thoroughly recommend the Club package on Level 17. I arrived after a long flight from Australia & was greeted at check-in, with friendly & professional staff, who offered me refreshments. The service however in the breakfast cafe on level 2 was unfriendly and dismissive, plus I had dirty cutlery.
This hotel needs to reproduce the standard of courtesy & enthusiasm for service which they provide in the Club, in ALL areas of the hotel..!!
The Perkin is in a strange location with its reception on the 5th floor, but don't let that put you off as it is amongst a great range of Western bars/restaurants that are alive every night of the week and only a few steps away once you exit the lift and lobby.
The Hotel is incredibly clean and the staff are well presented and very hospitable and happy to help where they can. Unlimited cans of coke, sprite and lemon iced tea are a nice touch if you brink duty free alcohol with you. The lollie bar was also something different, although some savoury snacks, such as noodles would have been nice. Also nespresso is available for free.
Best way to get there is by Airport train to Kowloon Station then the K4 bus which stops out front of Luxe Manor, walk up the stairs to right (looking at Luxe Manor) and at the top walk about 30m and you'll come to The Perkin. A bit of a pain if you have a lot of luggage and children, so do consider this, but otherwise excellent value for money. (There's not much point paying for a taxi or limo from the airport as I think the train is quicker and the K4 bus at Kowloon Station will get you as close as a taxi or limo can, so spend the money on a few drinks instead)

Hong Kong's classic skyline is world-famous, and there is no better vantage point to see it from than Tsim Sha Tsui. If you do manage to pull your eyes away from the incredible view there are also a host of fascinating things to do in the district. Our Tsim Sha Tsui hotels will keep you in the heart of the vibrant, energetic and always interesting Kowloon.
The best place to see this phenomenal skyline of brightly lit skyscrapers reflecting into the sea is from the Avenue of Stars. This is a Hollywood-style Walk of Fame dedicated to actors and influential figures from the Hong Kong movie industry. The Avenue of Stars is an attraction in itself but the view across to Victoria Harbour is the best reason to pay a visit. Tsim Sha Tsui has developed into Hong Kong's cultural district as museums of all varieties are based in the area. Depending on your preference there is the Hong Kong Museum of History, the Hong Kong Science Museum, the Hong Kong Museum of Art and even a Hong Kong Space Museum just to make sure everyone is catered for. Loaded with all that knowledge you may just find you'll need a rest in your Tsim Sha Tsui hotel to recuperate.
Running through the district is Nathan Road which is a hub of commerce and activity. The road is jam packed with shops, restaurants and renowned attractions such as the Chungking Mansions which is now part of Hong Kong folklore. The Mansions will offer an insight into Hong Kong life that isn't squeaky clean but worth peeking into. One of the reminders of Hong Kong's colonial past is the grand old Peninsula hotel which has been open for over 80 years. We think the best way to enjoy this slice of history is to celebrate it in true colonial fashion by indulging in the famous high tea served in the hotel.
