Hotel with great location”

Hotel located right in Harbor City mall and there are many shops nearby the hotel. So its very convenient if you come to shop. Within 5 minutes walk is also the ferry terminal, you can go to Macau. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Special mention to Victor at reception who was very kind to offer late check out when he saw I was with a baby.. all without me requesting. All in all, it was a pleasant stay. Would recommend it to anyone visiting HK.

Prince Hotel Marco Polo is is one of the best located hotels on Canton Road. It sits atop my favorite stores, so close to good restaurants and yet it is at the farther end of Canton Road so it's not too noisy and chaotic. I have found my new go-to hotel in Hong Kong.

Will book here again”

I love this hotel for their great location and amazing staff. The room is spacious and easy to move around even with shopping bags scattered in the room. The staff are friendly and accommodating, although I had a bit of the problem with my bed. It seemed stiff and a little hard and I wasn't very comfortable. But upon checking the other beds of my family, theirs was ok so I wasn't really sure why mine was different. I noticed that the bathrooms were updated as well. Thumbs up for this place!

Great Position Great Service”

We had the pleasure of staying at the Marco Polo Prince Hotel. We arrived earlier than expected and were looking to drop our bags and go. Instead we were escorted to the 16 Floor Continental Club Lounge and checked in immediately. The manager Anglea was fantastic not only upgrading our room but also offered us morning tea. I can highly recommend upgrading to a Continental Club room as the Food and drinks are great and the staff go out of their way to satisfy your every need. We will definitely stay here again.

Clean spacious room, great location”

Clean spacious room, in a great location. We choose Marcopolo Prince, every year, to accommodate us during the annual business conference in HK. =) This is because HK hotel rooms are usually very small, but at Prince hotel, it's almost twice bigger. Absolutely recommended! It can get quite pricey though, like buying shares. Please buy early! About 15 minutes walk nearby, there is a delicious noodle shop called "chiu fat". Please go and try and beef noodle soup. Best Winda

Best Hotel in Hong Hong Kong”

I stay in Hotels 4 days of every week. Prince Marco Polo Hong Kong is always my favorite in Asia. Excellent location (joined to one of Honk Kongs biggest shopping centers) , nice spacious rooms , and a very good breakfast selection. The best part of the hotel is welcoming and very helpful staff, especially on the continental club floor where you can relax all day in after a day of meetings or shopping with some excellent food prepared by the chef. A special thanks goes to Moon , Wing , Janice , Chloe and all the other staff.

MEMORABLE STAY AT PRINCE”

GREAT LOCATION: The nearest MTR station is Tsim Sha Tsui (exit A1) which is just a short walk from the hotel. There are restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, and shops nearby. EXCELLENT SERVICE: The management and staff were very warm and friendly. They even surprised my husband with a birthday cake, balloons, a card, and framed photos that made our stay very memorable. It's the personal touch that would make you want to go back. THE BEST FREEBIE: The room came with free use of a smartphone with unlimited data. Just turn on the phone's hotspot then connect your devices.

Best Location”

It's located among the busiest shopping area in Hong Kong, in fact a large mall is located on the same building. From and to the airport is very easy as well. Take the Airport Express train from/to Airport, step down in Mongkok MTR Station. There is a free hotel shuttle bus in the station, and this hotel is one of their stopping. Take the bus to the Mongkok Station and ride Airport Express Train to the airport. It's a lot cheaper and faster to go this way than take a cab or regular bus. The hotel cleanliness and amenities are superb, and the room is quite spacious. Definitely would be my go to hotel whenever I travel back to Hong Kong.

We don't have any other hotel in mind when we go to Hong Kong, just Prince hotel. I can't even count anymore how many times we have stayed at this hotel since we are frequent Hong Kong Visitors. 1st we loved about this place is the location, it is near everything. If you want to go shopping, you can already access it from the 2nd and 3rd floor of the hotel. Breakfast is also good at this hotel but if you want more exclusivity, choose the club floor rooms. You can also have breakfast there and almost all day perks of food and drinks. Service at this hotel is also good that's why we keep on coming back.

Wonderful hotel experience”

Although there was a line at the reception desk when we arrived, check in was a breeze. We got a free room upgrade which was a pleasant surprise! Our room was at the top floor. Very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was huge by HK standards. No view though. Hotel location is great if shopping is your agenda since it is directly connected to Harbour City. Lots of good eating places nearby as well.

My favourite hotel in Hong Kong”

We go to Hong Kong quite a lot, and we almost always stay at this hotel. The main reason is because the room is more spacious than others in Hong Kong, and also because this hotel has a strategic location, close to MTR station and Harbour Plaza. The only downside is it's quite pricey... Also note that this hotel is often busy, so early check-in is almost implausible.
