Connected to Harbour City (the largest shopping centre in Hong Kong), the Marco Polo Prince Hotel in Kowloon stands in a commanding position, facing west towards Victoria Harbour, right across from the China ferry terminal. Just behind the hotel is all the shopping, nightlife, and other action of Tsim Sha Tsui.
Sometimes walking around the streets of Kowloon can be a little bit disorienting, but if you’re staying here, you can’t really get lost finding your way back to your room. Simply head towards Victoria Harbour, then make a right and head west, it won’t be long until you are near the China ferry terminal or Harbour City.Shoppers will love staying here, you don’t even have to go outside to enter the huge Harbour City shopping complex, which is filled with a massive variety of stores, stalls, fast food restaurants and other activities. We’d even go as far as saying that the Marco Polo Prince Hotel is the ultimate place to stay for shopaholics in Hong Kong, it’s also within walking distance to other large shopping areas of Tsim Sha Tsui.
During our stay the hotel was being renovated, with some features being updated and the exterior was being repaired, this was a little disappointing, but the rate we paid was lower than usual. This is a good sign that shows that the Marco Polo brand keeps it’s hotels up to date and in good repair.A grand total of three hundred and ninety three guest rooms are featured at the Marco Polo Prince, it is a five star hotel, and the amenities and facilities this hotel provides are equal to other five star Marco Polo hotels around the world. Some great dining option are available on-site that we would recommend trying out, or if you’re into burgers and fast food you can head next door to Harbour City.
Most rooms have a great view of the surrounding area, very comfortable beds and the interior is stylish and contemporary. This isn’t the most lavish or amazing five star hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, but it holds it’s own and is well suited to most business and leisure travellers needs, including shoppers!We have tried to keep this review with the renovation in mind, we had a pleasant stay and will be coming back after the repair and upkeep has been completed, it will no doubt be a much improved experience. You can really make the most of your stay in Tsim Sha Tsui by staying here, and we have been informed that the entire repair work on the hotel will be completed after June 2011.
Stay tuned for another post-renovation review of the Marco Polo Prince Hotel from the team at TsimShaTsuiHotels.com!
