Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Slightly removed from the major attractions in Kowloon
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The 554-room Harbour Grand is slightly removed from the main attractions in Kowloon. However, many choose to stay here precisely because it isn't in the center of the hustle and bustle. For those guests who want to explore, the hotel provides a free bus shuttle to major attractions. The property overlooks the harbor, with great views from the fitness center, pool, and more than half of the guest rooms. All rooms have marble bathrooms (some with separate showers and tubs) and flat-screen TVs. Decor is somewhat generic, though, with simple wood furnishings, upholstered chairs, and wall-to-wall carpeting. The property is a solid choice in Kowloon, but those looking for over-the-top luxury and a more central location may consider the Peninsula.

 Location

On the eastern side of the Kowloon peninsula, near Tai Wan Shan Park

Harbour Grand is situated on the eastern side of the Kowloon peninsula, just a short walk from Tai Wan Shan Park.

Though Hong Kong Island is the most visited area of Hong Kong, Kowloon comes in second. A neighborhood of museums, historic temples, and shops, Kowloon attracts visitors throughout the year. Literally meaning "nine dragons," which stands for the eight hills in the area and the Chinese emperor, Kowloon is one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Hong Kong -- an already over-populated city. With the constant influx of tourists, the crowds continue to grow even larger.

Kowloon is home to some of the world's largest malls, a lively nightlife, and Kowloon Park -- Hong Kong's version of Central Park. But it's not just shopping and partying in Kowloon. Many areas of Kowloon have an authentic vibe, with all kinds of open-air markets -- flowers, jade, produce -- and historic buildings from before and during the time of the British occupation. Kowloon is also home to important museums such as the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Museum of History.
