Hong Kong Standford Hotel Review

20 November, 2009

Having reviewed one of the worst accommodation in Hong Kong, let me share with you one of the better hotels in Hong Kong – Stanford Hong Kong.  Located at the heart of Mongkok, it served as a good pitstop from hours of shopping at nearby Tung Choi Street Market (Ladies Street).  There are lots of cafes and even a cinema (showing just 2 Cantonese movies) around the hotel.

While there is limited walking space in a Standard Double Room at Stanford Hong Kong Hotel, the cool view of Hong Kong’s environment and the spacious writing table more than makes up for it.  However do take note that the small bottle of water on the writing table is booby-trapped!  It will cost you HKG40 (almost S$8) to drink it!

The beds are really comfortable and the LCD TV offers a number of cable channels ranging from HBO for the latest movies to ESPN for the latest sports update.  The hotel package we bought also included free Wi-Fi – just bring your laptop, get the network password from the hotel reception and you are good to go!

Remember the HKG40 water I told you about?  There are actually 2 complimentary bottles of mineral water in the toilet! 🙂

The shower and toilet facilities are pretty much what you would expect from a 3-star hotel.  What’s unique is that instead of providing you with bottles of shampoo and bodywash, Stanford Hong Kong hotel had combined hair soap + shampoo + shower gel + conditioner into one solution available from a dispenser in the toilet!

    The Hong Kong Stanford looks like a very nice hotel, I’m not so sure I could handle the all in one combo bath products! But when space is limited I guess it all makes sense…

    P.s. I found your blog through the Bloggers Choice Awards, I think it’s great and I voted for you, if you would like to vote for my educational blog you can vote here;

    It’s nice to see Standford Hotel here in your blog. We stayed there in April 1994 – when I was 6 years old LOL. It was my first out of the country trip and my parents saved up just for the sake of me experiencing how it feels like to ride in a plane and at the same time tour Hong Kong. I am still eager to go there soon and reminisce how it felt like when I was a kid. I’m glad that the hotel still looks good up to this day 😀

    Btw, I’m from the Philippines. Just tell me if you’re visiting our country 😀
