I don't really want to tell you how good this hotel is, it's really convenient, close to shops and MTR. The hotel even has a free shuttle bus from airport express. Breakfast are a little boring but hey they are free!! If you don't want this there are many cafes open for breakfast and brunch. It's like a hidden gem. Don't just go on my word. This is not a 5 star hotel,but if you don't need a gym or swanky reception this is the hotel for you!! Collapse

I spent months searching for a hotel to stay during my eight days and seven nights I would be spending in Hong Kong, while visiting family. Ultimately, it came down to price. Holiday Inn Express Hong Kong Soho was one of the more economical choices among the others. After landing at Hong Kong Airport, it is easy to take the Airport Express. Purchasing a single ride is $100 HKD while a Roundtrip will cost $180 HKD total ($90 HKD each way). Airport Express tickets can be paid with a credit card. At the same counter, you can purchase an Octopus card, to be used not only on the MTR transit system, but also as a method of payment for McDonald's, 7-Eleven stores, vending machines, etc. It will be $150 HKD for the card and you will have $100 HKD value on it. If you return the card at the end of the trip, you forfeit $9 HKD. Personally, I am keeping mine as I know I will be returning to Hong Kong in the near future. After the 24 minute ride to Hong Kong Station, you can catch the COMPLIMENTARY SHUTTLE BUS at H2 and jump right on. Holiday Inn Express Hong Kong Soho is the first stop on this route. No need to get comfortable because by the time you settle in, it is time for you to get off the shuttle at your hotel. At Holiday Inn Express Hong Kong Soho, I chose a Superior Harbor View room from Monday, April 10, 2017 to Monday, April 17, 2017. If you're traveling to the other side of the world, why not? I was in room 3506. 35th Floor. End of the hall, as requested. The views across the water of Tsim Sha Tsui were great but the view gets a bit tainted by the older buildings in frame of view. While it was nice to have the harbor view, I think I would have been fine without it, save the extra couple of dollars per day, and would have been fine with a lower floor room. My flight landed at 5:30AM and I arrived at Holiday Inn Express Hong Kong Soho at 7:00AM. The hotel was not sold out from the day before and the room I had requested was available. Therefore, I was able to go straight to my room and relax for a bit. I am coming from the United States, so the room is SMALLER than what you may typically be accustomed to. I will say that the size of the room can be easily compared to a cabin stateroom on a cruise ship. Yes, it's THAT small. However, I will upgrade the description to cozy. The bed is more harder than what I am accustom to. I can feel it in my back after the first night. After the first night, on my way out for the day, I stopped by the Front Desk and asked if there were any softer mattresses available. The front desk staff is more than willing to help you with any requests that you may have. When we returned in the evening, the softer (yet still firm) mattress had been placed. The housekeeping does a great job with the making of the beds and cleaning the bathroom on a daily basis. They give you two toothbrush/toothpaste sets, two shower caps, and two bottles of water, PER DAY. So now I have emergency toothbrushes and travel shower caps on standby. The no bathtub shower is huge for the size of the bathroom it's in. The design of the bathroom/shower door is smart for the small space. When you're in the bathroom, you close the door to the bathroom. Once you jump in the shower, you pull the door to close behind you to shower, and it allows the other person to use the toilet. This design works (or in my opinion, suggested only) for couples and very close friends. This is advertised as a IHG Green Engage System Level 4 hotel. "Level 4 hotels are leading hotels in the environmental sustainability area. They demonstrate leading and innovative approaches to being sustainable." However, as signage states to help save the environment by reusing towels, as my towels are on racks, they still gave me fresh towels every day. Breakfast.....remember, this is Holiday Inn Express. While the breakfast is not THE best in the world, it does it's purpose. Also, you are in Hong Kong. They have (both) Eastern and Western breakfast. You can have steamed rice noodles/buns and congee or you can have scrambled/boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, toast, croissants, coffee, tea, orange/apple juice. Service in the breakfast area is amazing. Sometimes you do feel like they are hovering because as soon as you take that last bite of food, they come quickly to take your empty plate. Again, this is breakfast that will hold you until wherever you are going or until you go off and find one of the many places to eat in Hong Kong. As I was there for seven nights, I did do laundry on my second to last day of my trip. you have to go to the front desk to buy tokens. It is $40 HKD for the washing machine and $40 HKD for the dryer. Machines are on the third floor. This is also where the iron and ironing board is. They are not in every hotel room, as that is how it is in the United States. One cycle in the dryer will not dry your clothes. I had to get a second token and my jeans were still slightly damp after two cycles. I just took them into my room and laid it over a chair. Outside the laundry room, in the morning there is coffee, tea, and juice set up in the common area. The third floor common area is also where you get ice. Be aware, we the ice melts in the bucket, water leaks out of the plastic bucket. You should place your ice bucket over the tray where the mugs and electric kettle is, but away from the electric kettle, of course. As I checked the floors (on the day of check out) to make sure nothing was left behind, I found a handful places in the room to be VERY dusty. Corners. Under the bed. Behind the sofa seat. The curtains and blinds can use a good beating outdoors as they are INCREDIBLY dusty. There is free wifi throughout the hotel. I was able to use my iPhone to text to other iPhones (no matter where they were in the world) and was able to Facetime (over free wifi). You do lose service while in the elevators. Three elevators where sometimes you would have minimum or no wait, while other times you may have to wait. They provide an Ethernet cable and international outlet converter in the room. There is also a mini refrigerator and electric water kettle in the room. The train station is less then a five minute walk. At Sheung Wan Station, the A2 exit is the closest exit to the station. The hotel is surrounded by three 7-Eleven stores and a 24 hour McDonald's (that delivers) is up the block. Where the A1 exit leave you, that is the closest main street, Des Voeux Road Central, the tram runs along Hong Kong Island. For $2.30 HKD it is a steal. If you have time and want to see Hong Kong Island, take the tram. All in all, I would definitely be willing to stay here again the next time I visit Hong Kong. I think I covered everything. Ask any questions you may have. Collapse

More like Sheung Wan area! Reception very nice. Rooms very uncomfortable! Not only is the bed rock hard, springs or lumps stick out. Broken chair in room. In room desk not suitable for working at (only big enough for lap top). Complained and was moved up a few floors with 'harbour view' (can see the water between the buildings). Same room higher floor. Although chair was not broken. No toiletries. Pump on the wall for hand soap or combination body wash/shampoo in shower. Air conditioning very very loud. Would not recommend. Collapse

We had a 24 hour layover in HK on our way to Toronto from Melbourne and I found this hotel for a great price on booking.com. We took the airport express to central station and walked to the hotel. Great location for the subway and sightseeing. They gave us late checkout of 2 pm for free which was great so we could go right to the airport. We were also given an upgrade to a harbour view on the 36th floor. Great clean hotel and loved the choice of firm or soft pillows. Collapse

The hotel is in a slightly quieter area of Hong Kong Island but very close to the nearest metro. The rooms we quite small but clean and functional. It was the location that was the real winner for us. Breakfast needs attention-it gets very busy and the selection is not great. The service on reception was super and all in all, we would definitely stay there again. Collapse
