The three-star Dorsett Seaview hotel in Kowloon is a popular choice, mainly for budget travelers who are not too hung up on being right in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui.
Low room rates (for a three-star hotel in this area) at the Dorsett Seaview are due to the fact that it’s located in the Yaumatei part of Kowloon, around 1.5 KM due north of Tsim Sha Tsui.The hotel is within walking distance of the Yaumatei MTR Station, which is two stops away, budget travelers can benefit from the lower prices and simply commute around. On the other hand it can be quite an inconvenience taking the MTR down to Tsim Sha Tsui all the time, especially when you are trying to enjoy a holiday or break in Hong Kong.
The Dorsett Seaview Hotel has over 250 guest rooms, a mix of twin and double, making it quite large compared to some of the other mid range hotels in the area. The rooms are well appointed with amenities, although we thought the TV in some rooms was placed at an angle that was hard to view from the beds. The only other problem that customers could face is that the rooms are quite small, this didn’t bother us as many hotels of this standard and size in Kowloon have similar sized rooms.
The services and features are not five star, but this place has all the basics right, the rooms are compact but clean, and reception can help you out if you have any questions about the local area.If the small room size doesn’t bother you and you are willing to sacrifice prime location in exchange for lower room rates, then this could be the place for you. Don’t let the angle of the TV up in the corner of the rooms bother you, as you will be spending your time out having fun, shopping and seeing the sights that Tsim Sha Tsui and the rest of Kowloon have to offer!
