Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Luxurious rooms feature 24-hour butler service, flat-screen TVs with DVD players, and iPod docks
  • Most of rooms have harbor views
  • Marble bathrooms have separate showers and soaking tubs
  • 7 restaurants including world-renowned NOBU and an Alain Ducasse restaurant, plus 24-hour room service
  • Numerous meeting rooms including a ballroom
  • A top-notch spa and a large fitness center
  • 24-hour business and concierge services
  • A beautiful rooftop pool terrace, where free Tai Chi and yoga classes are held

Cons

  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • On-site dining is extremely expensive

Bottom Line

The 590-room InterContinental is one of the most luxurious hotels in Hong Kong, conveniently situated in Kowloon within walking distance of numerous sights. Its claim to fame may be that over two-thirds of the rooms have harbor views, but the hotel has plenty else to brag about, including seven dining options (one is NOBU and another is an Alain Ducasse restaurant), a rooftop pool, a top-notch spa, and gorgeous rooms featuring 24-hour butler service. Rooms are decorated with Asian accents -- such as tasseled gold and brown bed throws with calligraphy print -- and also feature large flat-screen TVs with DVD players, iPod docks, and marble bathrooms with separate showers and tubs. There's a fee for Wi-Fi, but those who can afford this hotel rate it as one of Hong Kong's best.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In East Tsim Sha Tsui, within a few minutes' walk of two MTR stops, several najor sights, and shops

The InterContinental is conveniently located in East Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood in Kowloon, an area known for its numerous attractions and wonderful shopping. The hotel is near a few parks and within walking distance to major attractions, including the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Avenue of Stars. The East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station is half a block from the hotel, and the Tsim Sha Tsui is within a five-minute walk.

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

  • 38-minute drive to Hong Kong International Airport
  • 4-minute walk to Avenue of Stars
  • 4-minute walk to Hong Kong Museum of Art
  • 8-minute walk to Star Ferry Pier and Victoria Harbour
  • 15-minute walk to Hong Kong Museum of History

  • 8-minute subway ride to Temple Street Market
  • 10-minute bus ride to Jade Market
  • 25-minute subway ride to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, or a 17-minute drive
  • 33-minute subway ride to West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade, or a 12-minute drive
  • 38-minute subway ride to The Peak Tram, or a 23-minute drive
  • 28-minute drive to Hong Kong Disneyland
