"5 Star Experience At The Island Shangri-La Hotel"
From the moment you walk in to the hotel you experience 5 Star Quality.
The staff are amazing.
The hotel is beautiful with all the amenities you could wish for - from the beautiful spa treatments
to the stunning pool and fabulous restaurants.
The view from the rooms are sensational - overlooking the harbour.
I stayed there for 10 days and did not want to leave.
The Pottinger is in the heart of Hong Kong. Just walk out the front door (Stanley Street) and you will be in the center of the HK universe! Also, remember that the hotel is NOT on Queen Street; not sure why that address is even listed. There is no Google street view of the hotel facade, but it is adjacent to the stone steps. The hotel has a fast elevator. The staff were always very willing to help with touristy info. Very friendly! The room was super clean. The only complaint we have is that the breakfast service in the restaurant was very slow...not enough servers/cooks apparently. All the adjacent construction noise we had read about had ceased when we were there. The subway station was very close. There was a fairly close bakery also that had wonderful egg tarts (the best in the world)...as you walk out the front door of the hotel, turn right and go a few blocks and ask a local where the Tai Cheong Bakery is...maybe the hotel staff would know the specific location...we asked a local. The hotel also had a Nespresso machine in the room. We would stay there again...location was really great.
We liked the location. It was between 2 metro stations, so very convenient.
There was a good variety of shopping. It was mainly exclusive shops at the mall near our hotel, but there were also street markets if you walked the other way!
The service was very good. We didn’t eat in the restaurant so couldn’t say what the food was like.

Offering excellent value, this budget hotel is located in the Wanchai district of Hong Kong Island, midway between Central …More
There are several buses that run from the center of the city to Ap Le Chau, but at rush hour one can expected to queue for up to 30 minutes. Alternatively, with the cheap & efficient taxi service one can expect to pay about $70HK, $10 USD to the hotel.
The room itself is very small but has all the amenities one could ask, like free bottle water, refrigerator, toiletries, slipper etc. Bed length is only 5'6", which may not be suitable for some westerners.
Safe.clean.near to subway. Walking distance to halal food place.And they loan you a 3g phone so you may use it on the road and covert to hotspot wifi device. Conclusion i would recommend this hotel to my friends, family even to ppl that i dont even like.
They allowed me to check in early without fee. Staff were very helpful, especially the concierge. Rooms were on the small side but it suited me at the time. My 'cityview' room on 18th floor was of a concrete wall but I just needed a place to sleep for the night. Hotel is close to ferry, buses, taxi's are easy and it's less than 5 min to subway. Many restaurants in the area as well as of course the Wan Chai area - the hotel is in an excellent location. Checkout was a little slow while they checked the room and minibar (which I did not use) but that would be as close as I would come to a negative comment, everything else was excellent.
