Disappointing HotelPosted Jul 16, 2014
Pros: The swimming pool and exercise areas were immaculately presented; the staff were pleasant and welcoming. The buffet dinner was fantastic.
Cons: The rooms and the external lounge areas could be cleaned more thoroughly.
Location: The Hotel is located away from Kowloon and HK island however the shopping in Tsuen Wan is much better value and there are far less people.
We moved from a Kowloon Hotel to experience what we thought would be a few days enjoying a quiet retreat 'on the Beach'. So disappointed! The Hotel is located approximately one kilometre to a beach unfit for swimming (in amongst oil and diesel from transient sea vessels). The check-in experience was absolutely horrific due to the large number (more than fifty) of other holiday-makers also checking in. The Reception area is understaffed. Most of the staff don't speak english which made communication difficult. The room we had reserved had a commanding view of the sea however the the furnishings were adorned with cigarette burns and stains. An upgraded room was a moderate improvement but it set the tone for a poor experience.

Lovely hotel near to beach, Disneyland + airport!Posted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: The pool area and the beautiful décor throughout the hotel.
Location: 30mins if that to Hong Kong Disneyland and a five minute walk to the beach.
We arrived at the hotel at 12.30pm and were able to check in straight away despite check in being 2pm. They did ask for 500hkd deposit but as we were only staying one night and didn't have that cash spare they just took a photocopy of my debit card which was considerate. Room was super spacious and came with complementary bottled water. Really clean rooms and 2 pillows for each single bed. Had a mini taxi rank outside the front of the hotel and it was 140hkd to Disneyland and 220hkd to the airport. We ate at the restaurant called Cafe Lido. The staff were pleasant and the food was reasonably priced; an american breakfast with OJ and coffee was 78hkd plus service charge. The pool area was very clean and they gave you free towels and locker and there was a lifeguard present at all times round the pool. Hotel is also located very close to the beach and is just 160 steps down from the hotel. All in all so so happy we stayed here and would definitely return to this wonderful hotel. Nothing but good memories of the place!

Great Hotel to Stay in Hong KongPosted Jun 21, 2014
Great hotel , less that 5 mins walk to the beach, we enjoyed the out door pool and the hot tub. The hotel have a shuttle bus to the Tsuen Wan MTR Station, where you can get to all the great shopping malls and restaurant. My husband and I had a wonderful time on our vacation and we will definitely stay at The Royal View Hotel when we visit Hong Kong.

Lovely view from the roomPosted Jun 14, 2014
Pros: Spacious room Beautiful view
Cons: A free shuttle bus service Better signs in the hotel - e.g. how to get down to the beaches near the hotel
A comfortable room with lots of space. I booked a double room with an additional roll-away bed for my 2 friends and myself but we were upgraded free-of-charge to a room for 4, which was lovely. If you want to get away from the hustle and tiny rooms at exorbitant rates in the city centre, Royal View Hotel is a good choice. The only downside of this hotel is also in its location. It is located about 10 minutes by car to Tseun Wan MTR Station and the hotel shuttle bus costs 10HKD out of the hotel (but FOC from the MTR station).

Great Hotel but too FarPosted Jun 13, 2014
The hotel and the view from the hotel was really great. Cleanliness and facilities was excellent. The only thing that was quite inconvenient was moving to and fro the tourist attractions. It was far and you need to take the minibus from the mtr and locating the minibus stop was also difficult and waiting for the minibus was also tiresome. But other than that the hotel was great.

Ok hotelPosted May 18, 2014
Corridors are not air conditioned and so are hot with musky smell especially during monsoon season. Busy hotel due to being close to Disney land and airport. Free shuttle bus to local station and long lines for this service

we ejnoyed our stay at the royal view. we were upgraded to a family suite at no extra charge. the staff was friendly. and our view of the bridge was nice. unfortunatly it was to cool to take dip in the pool but other wise the hoel was nice. Our room service was missing some items; coffee and french fries, when i mentioned it to the dining room they kindly brought them up to the room for us!
