Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Rooms show slight wear
  • Fee for Wi-Fi (except suites)
  • Fee for cots and rollaway beds
  • Small bathrooms

Bottom Line

This 614-room hotel is a nice mid-range pick for business and leisure travelers alike. It has an excellent location in Tsim Sha Tsui, a block from the subway and within walking distance to shopping and major attractions. Rooms are fairly spacious (by Hong Kong standards), and come equipped with minibars, free tea and coffee, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks, but they’re showing wear and tear, and there's a fee for Wi-Fi. The large rooftop pool, the Family Rooms, and the varied dining options on-site make it a solid pick for families, but there’s a pesky fee for rollaway beds and cots, and some guests complain about the seedy vibe outside the hotel at night. There’s also a spa, complete with a sauna and a steam room that guests can use free of charge, and a bright, modern fitness center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A block from Tsim Sha Tsui subway stop, and within walking distance to major attractions on Kowloon

The Holiday Inn is conveniently located in the heart of the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon, which is known for its numerous attractions and stores. The MTR station is just a block away, and various tourist spots can be reached on foot, such as the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Kowloon Park. For a leisurely stroll along the waterfront, check out the Avenue of the Stars. Known as Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame, this happening promenade is a favorite among camera-toting tourists, with people lining up to pose with a bronze likeness of Bruce Lee and other popular statues.

A neighborhood of museums, historic temples, and shops, Kowloon attracts visitors throughout the year. It 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.

  • 40-minute drive to Hong Kong International Airport
  • 4-minute walk to Kowloon Park
  • 5-minute walk to Park Lane Shopper's Boulevard
  • 6-minute walk to Hong Kong Museum of Art
  • 8-minute walk to Avenue of the Stars
  • 11-minute walk to Star Ferry Pier and Victoria Harbour
  • 13-minute walk to Hong Kong Museum of History
  • 20-minute walk or 10 minutes via public transportation to Jade Market
  • 8-minute to Expo Promenade
  • 9-minute drive to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
  • 12-minute drive to The Peak Tram
  • 12-minute drive to West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade
  • 28-minute drive to Hong Kong Disneyland
