We stayed over at Marco Polo on our way back to Australia for a brief 2-day stay after a hectic (2 weeks) trip to the UK. It was a welcome break, and allowed us to relax, enjoy the facilities of the hotel and take advantage (when our energy permitted) of the fabulous location. We were on the Continental Club floor, and the staff were excellent. Even when a small 'communication' glitch occurred and our transportation to the airport didn't arrive, they went out of their way to fix this promptly and we were on our way with only a few minutes delay. Overall, the hotel provides a first-rate service, and we recommend this unreservedly to anyone wanting to enjoy the delights of Hong Kong from a fabulous surrounding.
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.
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.
