Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel: Room Review

Hotel collections is a regular series showcasing the hotels or apartments we stayed in during our vacations. Full listing can be found on our Travel Tales Page.
Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel
We are no strangers to Hong Kong. This is our 4 the trip to Hongkong in over 5 years. For the past few trips we had stayed at the Sailsbury YMCA Tsim Sha Tsui. We loved the place as it has a Family suite that comes with a King size bed and a Queen sofa bed. It was also fairly priced at slightly above a normal hotel rate and most importantly, the location is excellent However The Sailsbury was fully booked and we had to look at other alternatives.

The Hotel
It was quite difficult to find a room that accommodates 2 adults and 2 child ( legally) . Most can at most house 2 adults and 1 child. During our search we managed to source out Macro Polo Hotel . We made it our choice for our vacation as we were able to have an extra bed for our booking ( extra cost for this).
The Room
Bar and Bags area
The best word to describe the layout of the deluxe room we had is compartmentalized. Each area area given a space by themselves. We have a separate bar and bags room, a writing desk, an open concept washing cum clothing area and thankfully a closed door toilet with bathtub.
Of all the spots, we were most impressed with the well equipped washing cum clothing area.
Washing area
The space comes with a washing basin, a hairdryer and Marco Polo branded toiletries.

The room was not large by any means, especially with an extra bed. Compared to the family suite at YMCA, space is a premium here. However the updated decor and comfortable beds made up for the lack of space.

View from Marco Polo Hotel Hong Kong
There are restaurants within the premises, but with its excellent location , you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to food options around the hotel. From Dim Sum to fast food to takeaways, you can find it all within walking distance. The hotel is situated in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui ( which we reckon is a great vicinity to be in for tourist) . It does help that is is located just opposite of The Sailsbury, thus we were quite familiar with the surroundings.
HK Clock tower
It is a great starting point for sightseeing. You can began your sightseeing tour from the HK clock tower which is situated next to TST Victoria. This also means access to Ferries is a breeze. Tsim Sha Tsui station is also within walking distance . For those heading to Macau for a day trip, the terminal is located about 500 meters away from the hotel too.

For connectivity to the airport, the Airport Express shuttle bus stops at the hotel, thus providing a link for hose traveling into the city from the airport via the Airport Express.
Victoria Harbour
You could continue your sightseeing at the Avenue of Stars. Don't forget to stay and watch the nightly symphony of lights if you have not caught it yet.
Avenus of Stars
Alternatively head down to one of the 2 museums ( Space museum and Art Museum ) found along Victoria Harbour Waterfront.As mention, food is always just around the corner. Go ahead and explore. The restaurants are fairly price and there are Hongkong style food courts in the malls too.
Dim Sum
If shopping it on the cards, have no worries. The hotel is located next to Lane Crawford and Harbourcity. Directly opposite is charming former police headquarters known as Heritage 1881. For the shopaholic , this would be the perfect venue.
Toys r Us at Harbourcity
The food, play and shop options around the hotel are enticing. For those who wants to head out to major attractions around Hong Kong, this would be the perfect place to be.
Just in case you are wondering, Disneyland is a mere 35 minutes MTR ride away!
Guess where we are heading
For its excellent location, Macro Polo Hotel Hongkong comes at a reasonable price. It will be under our list of hotel to stay should we revisit Hong Kong in the future!
