Hotels near and overlooking Victoria Harbour

Being in the center of the city there are many hotels actually along the Harbour, some with great views, others with great access to the harbour facilities, and some with both.  Here are a few select choices to consider if viewing and being close to our harbour is an important plan for your vacation, as it should!

Several hotels actually mention their harbour view as part of their name as they know how important to many visitors to our fair city know that the harbour is going to be really what they want to see.

The Harbour View Hotel at 4 Harbour Road, Wanchai is affiliated with the YMCA but is not a hostel but a real, luxury hotel. website  Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel next door at number 1 on Harbour Road is a luxury Marriot hotel, and is actually inside the Exhibition and Convention Centre complex, making it centrally located. website

On the other side of the harbour on TST you'll find great views from The Intercontinental which is right beside the Tsimshatsui Promenade and great for walking to all parts of the tourist area such as Nathan Road and Star Ferry.  More westerly is the Marco Polo which is actually a set of three hotels all joined together, try to stay in the "Hong Kong Hotel" part which has the best views across our harbour to the lights of Hong Kong Island. website

Back on Hong Kong island towards the western side the Four Seasons Hotel at IFC has great views across the harbour and 5 star luxury, and is joined onto IFC Mall for all the brand shopping you could want.  While close by geographically but in a different budget category is the Best Western Harbourview which offers very reasonable rates and is close by interesting local shopping.

For the ultimate in old world charm and modern luxury though you can't beat a harbour view room from The Peninsular Hotel on Tsimshatsui (pictured), especially if you are staying in a high floor room in the new block. This old style colonial building once faced the rail terminus from the Kowloon Canton Railway, which took trains that led all the way back to London.  Today the railway station is gone, moved to Hong Hum, and the location now houses the museums of Space and Art as well as the Cultural Centre which hosts theater and performances. The hotel itself has modernized, putting on a large tower block at the rear, while maintaining the colonial charm of the restaurants and of course the famed Lobby Lounge where people take Afternoon Tea in the British fashion.

Beyond the harbour area itself there are many other hotels in Hong Kong, see some more here.
