Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Prime location in Tsim Sha Tsui, close to public transportation, Victoria Harbour, and many shops and restaurants
  • Modern rooms with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks
  • Harbour-view rooms have wide windows that offer great views of Victoria Harbour
  • Executive Club rooms offer stellar views even from bathrooms (with glass walls)
  • The Sky Garden -- a 40th floor outdoor terrace with a putting green -- overlooks the harbor
  • Modern fitness center
  • 3 dining options including a cute bakery and a 38th-floor upscale restaurant

Cons

  • Showers in the bathrooms are extremely narrow
  • Modern wooden furniture in the rooms shows nicks and scratches
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The luxurious, 324-room Hotel Panorama is the Rhombus chain's crown jewel in Hong Kong. This contemporary waterfront high-rise, located in the popular tourist area of Tsim Sha Tsui, boasts panoramic views of beautiful Victoria Harbour and the city. The modern, sophisticated rooms, though small, have mirrors behind the beds make the space appear bigger, as well as modern perks including flat-screen TVs, minibars and iPod docks. The bathrooms are more enclosed than those at its sister properties, and have narrow shower/tub combos (or shower/tub combos plus a separate walk-in shower) and shiny black counters. Amenities are extensive: two restaurants serving all three meals (the casual Cafe Express and trendy Ava Slash Bar, with great views); a fitness center; and a "Sky Garden" with putting green overlooking the harbor. For business travelers, there are spacious meeting rooms and a business center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the popular Tsim Sha Tsui area, near public transportation, museums, parks and markets

Hotel Panorama is the tallest luxury hotel overlooking Victoria Harbour, which means guests get some amazing views from inside. It's located in Tsim Sha Tsui, a popular tourist neighborhood on the Kowloon Peninsula that's the Hong Kong equivalent of Times Square in New York City. The trendiest shopping malls and attractions, such as K11 Art Mall, iSQUARE, DFS Galleria, The ONE and IMAX Theatre, are all within walking distance. It's also a short walk to MTR East Tsim Sha Tsui Station, one stop from the MTR Hung Hom Station, and a five-minute drive from the Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal.

Trekking through Hong Kong is truly a feast for the senses. Much like Times Square and the blinking neon lights of the Las Vegas Strip, Hong Kong could at first be a sensory overload, but areas outside the statuesque skyscrapers showcase the true charm and beauty of the city. After exploring the city's tightly-packed streets and navigating the ever-present stream of traffic, one great place to escape is The Peak, Hong Kong's most popular attraction. Visitors arrive at The Peak via the Peak Tram, which rises 1,300 feat above sea level to provide outrageous views of the city. Once at the top, The Peak Tower offers shopping and dining, and The Sky Gallery displays artwork by local Hong Kong artists.

Another way to take in the sights of Hong Kong is to ride the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, one of the world's busiest harbors. It's an essential part of local commuter life, but also an important aspect of the city's tourism. Once at Victoria Harbour's waterfront, visitors can seek the Avenue of the Stars -- Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Avenue of the Stars is accompanied by the Symphony of the Stars, a sound and light show that pays tribute to the city's film industry. Experience thrill rides at Ocean Park Theme Park, or get lost in the magic at Hong Kong Disneyland, which incorporates the different lands of Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

Not unlike New York, Hong Kong is quite the expensive city, but public transportation is a relatively cheap way to get to around. Take a taxi to one of the city's many markets for souvenirs, or IFC Mall for high-end retail shopping. Should shopping or sightseeing become tiresome, Hong Kong has several beaches for quiet relaxation outside the city.

  • 2-minute walk to several bus stops
  • 2- to 10-minute walk to restaurants and shopping

  • 14-minute drive to IFC Mall
  • 15-minute drive to West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade
  • 15-minute drive to Star Ferry Pier
  • 19-minute drive to The Peak and The Peak Tram
