Hong Kong Hotels With a Harbour View

If you read the brochures, nearly every hotel in Hong Kong boasts a Harbour View. In reality, many properties slap harbor view on their promotional literature even if the only way you would catch a glimpse of water is standing on a box in the bathroom. Many visitors to Hong Kong hotels arrive expecting a harbor view room only to find they’ve got the bricks of a back alley to stare at for two weeks.

The five hotels below all have bonafide harbor view rooms, but they will also have non-harbor facing rooms on the rear side of their building. You should make it clear on booking that you want a harbor facing room.

The Intercontinental

Address
18 Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Phone
+852 2721 1211

One of Hong Kong’s premium properties, the Intercontinental is perched on the Kowloon waterfront and offers unbeatable views over the harbor and onto Hong Kong’s iconic skyline. Also making good use of the jaw-dropping backdrop are the hotel restaurants, which include the award-winning NoBu and Spoon, as well as Lobby Lounge, which may have the best view in the city. Book the Terrace corner suite to enjoy a Jacuzzi overlooking the harbor.

Marco Polo

Address
3 Canton Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Phone
+852 2113 0088

An absolute behemoth of building that is split into three separate but jointly managed hotels; the pick of the bunch is the upmarket Marco Polo, which offers cracking views over the harbor and onto the famed Hong Kong skyline. Rooms are well appointed and fitted with all the modern business traveler could need, from a mini-bar to a trouser press. You’ll find the usual line-up of gym, spa, swimming pool on site. Do be warned; this is where the increasing number of cruise ships that drop in on Hong Kong dump their passengers, so don’t be surprised to find the Titanic parked outside your window when you throw back the curtains.

The Four Seasons

Address
Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, 8 Finance St, Central, Hong Kong

The views here are not quite as impressive as the Intercontinental, as the hotel is on Hong Kong Island rather than facing it, but The Four Seasons is nevertheless as close to the water’s edge as you can get without falling in. Meeting place for movers, shakers, sheiks, and stars, the Four Seasons Hong Kong has consistently been hailed as a leader in luxury, and the facilities and amenities on offer here are second to none. The drawback; you’ll need a generous benefactor to sponsor any stay here - room rates are as breathtaking as the view.

The Salisbury YMCA

Address
41 Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Phone
+852 2268 7000

Proving a harbor view needn’t equal an empty wallet, the views from the Salisbury YMCA may not be the very best in the city (the water lies across a busy road), but you’ll get a good slice of the sea for a small slice of money. Unfortunately, potential guests are often put off by the four letters hanging above the door, imagining scout groups camped out amongst bunk bed dormitories. In fact, the Salisbury YMCA is one of Hong Kong’s best-kept secrets, with basic, but modern, ensuite rooms that boast satellite TV, internet and aircon. There is also a rooftop pool and gym facilities on site.

Address
Hong Kong Convention And Exhibition Centre, 1 Harbour Rd, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
Phone
+852 2802 8888

Set out on a small peninsula created to house the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Renaissance Harbour View boasts a slew of rooms with breathtaking views of the harbor. More competitively priced than some of its flashier competitors, the Renaissance Harbor View hasn’t skimped on any of the extras and the hotel is stacked with all the amenities you’d expect from a five star, and some that you wouldn’t, such as a driving range.
