                  It's OK Unless You Are On Business and Need Decent Internet”

                  It is a typical 3.5-star Wanchai hotel. If you are visiting on business and need a realistic internet speed, beware as the Empire Wanchai has terrible internet. They say it is "for the entire hotel" but this is just an excuse as other hotels in the immediate area have really high-speed internet. They will loan you this free Huawei "WiFi box" but it is only marginally better than the hotel internet. They have a full breakfast for free (for many guests) but the seating is not like a coffee shop - more like long military canteen style tables. It's not bad and the location is what makes it nice. Staff is friendly.

                  I like Wan Chai so the location works well for me. It's good value for the cost. The break is much better than when I previously stayed there. Actually, the breakfast was amazing! I had a slight issue bc the agency represented the breakfast was complimentary. Anyway, I understand that most guests are given the breakfast. If you make a request, they will likely honor it. Actually, on the site which asks you to list your required amenities, I list free breakfast and the Empire pops up. The staff is very friendly and helpful and professional. Highly recommend!

                  The location is not far from HKCEC. It takes only 10 mins walk. There are many 7-11, coffee shops, restaurants and bars surrounded the hotel. Despite the room is a bit small, it is enough space to stay 2 persons in a room. The general facilities in room are working well including air con, hair dryer, water boiler, TV, safebox and refrigerator. The hotel staffs are nice, well trained, good housekeeping, service minded bellboys. Highly recommended and worth for value.

                  The hotel isn't expensive and is value for money. It is an older hotel but room size was good and the rooms clean without any smells. I've stayed at the Burlington and Wharney before and this is similar location and price.

                  This hotel is few minutes walk from Wan Chai MRT with a lot of good restaurants around the area. It is also few minutes walk from Causeway Bay which is one of the shopping areas in Hong Kong. The room also comes with a phone with 4G which can be used while roaming around HK. Recommended and will definitely come back.

                  Brings back warm memories”

                  In my first trip to Hong Kong I was staying in this hotel and that was nearly 18 years ago. Brings back warm memories although I totally forgotten how small the bathroom is. Very nice and friendly staff. The free airport shuttle to Hong Kong station is just right in front of their doorstep.

                  My first stay was on floor 5 and the shower is miserable and the air co did not work. My second stay I was on floor 16 and everything worked fine. The bathroom is a bit small and twice I find a woman's long hair in my "clean" towel which throws me off. On a rain storm night, my window leaked water and they offered to move me but since I was leaving in 2 days, I did not bother changing room. They cleaned up immediately the next day and placed a plate of fruits as a kind gesture which is nice. I will stay here again..

                  Having never been to Hong Kong, choosing a hotel was difficult but I made the correct choice. The hotel is clean comfortable and the price doesn't empty your pockets before your start to explore. It is walking distance to some night life and the ferry terminals but for those that choose not to walk, the underground is a block away and 2 stops further. Great Hotel....Great location

                  The room is very comfortable with a big bed, which was perfect with my wife and daughter. The free phone is very useful for my wife to use. Located in Wan Chai, it is very close to good food and the MRT.

Convenient to many locations including the convention center. Free Handy phones they provide are very helpful for HK calls and calls to US & other countries. I will return.

                  The handy phone is amazing, the location was excellent andf the staff is very friendly

                  We really enjoyed our stay at the Empire Hotel. The location of this place is superb! It is very near the MTR station and it is surrounded by food and entertainment! The best part about staying at the Empire Hotel though was the Handy Phone. They provide you with a free smartphone. It is a 4G phone that has links to things to do, places to shop, places to eat, maps to get around town, you can buy ticktes right from the phone, and on and on! This is such a great idea and it made navigating the city so much easier! I wish all hotels provided this service...amazing!

                  Very good. The room was surprisingly large, with all amenities included. There is also a free shuttle to the HK Airport Express Station which runs every 15 minutes. Many establishments and restaurants nearby.

                  First time staying there,the room was nice, only problem was there was only one power socket at the desk which was used by the provided mobile phone. The free mobile phone usage was superb. Network coverage was excellent and the free overseas call to Singapore was fantastic.

                  Location, quality of room, pool

                  I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would definitely go back. I had a king size room and it was very spacious for Hong Kong. There was even a bit of a view of the harbour. Everything about the room was quality and comfort. The pool was small and only had a few lounge chairs but nice to have the option.
