Great choice in Kowloon
Posted Nov 28, 2016 on Hotels
If you keep an open mind and set low expectations it is easy to be pleasantly surprised by the Silka Seaview Hotel. The rooms were small--as most are in HK--but we still managed it to make it work for 2 adults and 2 small children. What we liked: efficient design and use of space, bathroom with separate shower, nice big window with views of a pleasant square and temple, daily maid service, and refrigerator. The room also included free use of a local cell. phone with unlimited data which was great to have as we made our way around HK. The location was fantastic just 1-2 blocks away from several must-see markets (Jade Market, Temple Street, among them). Also, the Silka has a frequent free shuttle dropping off at Kowloon station, the China Ferry Pier, shopping and sister properties which we used a lot. Perhaps the bathroom could be refreshed, a few hooks installed for hanging clothing, and the carpet better vacuumed but all in all still a great stay. Would definitely return.
