Shuttle service between the hotel, Middle Road and The Sun Arcade runs every 20 to 40 minutes. The hotel also offers 100% electric transportation with branded limos which can be booked pre-arrival.

A 7-minute walk from a metro station, this refined, high-rise hotel with a glass facade is a 13-minute walk from Hong Kong Observatory, and 2 km from the shops and fireworks of colourful Victoria Harbour.

Featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, the sophisticated rooms come with complimentary Wi-Fi and minibars, as well as flat-screen TVs, loaner smart phones and Nespresso machines; some have harbour views. Suites add separate living areas. Room service is offered.

There are 3 chic eateries, including a harbour-view restaurant. Other amenities consist of a gym, a posh spa, and a rooftop pool with a breezy poolside bar.

A hotel unlike any other. Welcome to a different world. Hotel ICON is a unique hotel designed by celebrated architects Terence Conran, Rocco Yim and William Lim. Breathtaking open public spaces, a striking vertical garden by Patrick Blanc, a grand sweeping staircase, innovative guest rooms and three vibrant dining spaces radiate contemporary style. We offer our guests traditional Asian hospitality, with all its courteous and attentive qualities – but in a refreshingly modern, stylish and international environment.

The hotel is better than I expected, eco-friendly as well which is surprising for HK hotel standard. They even have a filtered water tape in every room which is THE BEST feature I have seen in any hotels. The staff in general are nice and helpful.

We stayed over for one night in this wonderful hotel, the service was impeccable, the rooms are a great size, everything is eco friendly which we liked. The pool is stunning, it has a relaxed energy to it. We enjoyed the breakfast thoroughly, allow lots of time for it because there’s lots of choice :). The perfect staycation right in the heart of TST.

The rooms are spacious that feature a contemporary furnishing, plus a free mini-bar full of beers, soft drinks and nibbles. We absolutely enjoyed the stunning panoramic views of Hong Kong’s skyline from our rooms. Not to mentioned how delightful I am to see Hotel Icon driving sustainability and promoting eco-travels by incorporating a couple of green features (e.g. filtered drinking water tap, in-shower dispensers) in the rooms. A very pleasant stay and defo a great place to get away on staycation:).

The hotel is fully owned by the university next to it and very close to the transportation hub. Though you can tell staff not seasoned like the senior staff in other hotels, they are young and neat which is nice to see. Most importantly, I think the hotel is well funded.

The hotel does not have a huge and grand frontage, but things above ground floor surprise you. The hallway design is simple yet decent. The room we upgraded is on 26/F which included priority check-in on 28/F. The room is well equipped and marvellous. It has HP printer, Nescafe, KEF Bluetooth speaker, VS hair dryer, Samsung TV set, lux mini bar, external charger, Colgate dental supplies, eco-friendly items, deep bathtub, separated toilet, big cloakroom.

Clean room, comfortable carpet, no smell no stain no noise, nothing is broken, switches and lights are fabulous. Even the filtered tap water tastes so pure. The harbour view in the full-height glass at the end of the bed is pretty eye-catching. The glass faces directly to the eastern area of Hong Kong Island. At night, looking at the calm but glamorous skyline at is very peaceful. One and the only con is the heavy door shuts hard and loud. “Bang!”

The semi-buffet breakfast at The Market is as good as its reputation. Tasty pastry, silky scrambled egg, crisp like chips bacon. The tea set at the lounge is fine, no big surprise. The music is a bit loud there in the afternoon. Free flow drink is good. The professional bartender guarantees fine drinks. Above & Beyond Restaurant on the same floor has the best view facing Central. It serves the best Peking Duck you can find in town.

The service was exceptional and the room was incredible with an amazing view, free mini-bar, luxurious toiletries and even a filtered water system. Absolutely loved the eco-friendliness of this hotel! We also enjoyed great views of the Symphony of Lights show from both the room and the rooftop pool area. All around excellent hotel. Highly recommend!

This hotel is amazing! From quality of the room to the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. We felt super welcome. The location is very central and convenient. Price is very good and the rooms are spacious, for HK standard. The only issue is that the “eco-friendly” fridge in the room is totally useless and the “sweat zone” facilities are quite minimal. But for a short stay, these are not big issues.
The room is decent size for the rate which quite a nice view. Pardon the messy room as I am checking out that day. Bed is quite hard with some pillows that is not exactly the comfy way. Toilet and heater is ok. There is a gym and lounge on level 2 which u can sweat out or catch some coffee there at the lounge. The hotel doesn’t offer ice but drinks are chilled.
The master bedroom is huge by HK standard, there was a desk, king bed n ensuite bathroom and plenty of space to place 2 large suitcase. The other room has a queen size bed n decent amount of space to walk. The hotel practises Earth/Green Eco theme and if you are not fussy, they change your linens every 3 days.
We were pleasantly surprised to know that the room comes with free daily breakfast of toast, buns, juices, daily fruits n coffee n tea. This was enough to help kickstart our mornings. What made this hotel great was the LOCATION!!! MTR is a mere 5 mins walk and there are plenty of local Cha Chaan Teng round the corner, supermarkets n a local wet market. Our kids can just literally hang out ard this vicinity the whole trip cos they say it has everything!

 3. Eco Tree Hotel 4* – Eco Hotels Hong Kong

Eco Tree Hotel
Eco Tree Hotel

Right next to Sai Ying Pun MTR station (A2 exit), Eco Tree Hotel offers accommodation in Hong Kong. Free internet access is available in all guest room.

Eco Tree Hotel is a 5-minute drive from Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal or Central, while Hong Kong International Airport is a 40-minute drive away. Guests can reach Causeway Bay, Mongkok in 20 minutes by taking public transportation.

Featuring air conditioning and carpeted floor, all guest rooms comes with an electric kettle, minibar, safe, wardrobe and flat-screen TV. The private bathroom comes with shower facilities, free toiletries and a hairdryer. Some units feature views of the sea or city.

In a modern tower with a glass facade, this upscale hotel is 1 km from the Strait of Malacca, 3 km from bustling Jonker Street Night Market and 11 km from Malacca International Airport.

Unfussy rooms for up to 4 guests have free Wifi and cable TV, as well as mini fridges, and tea and coffee making facilities. Upgraded rooms feature colourful artwork and/or strait views. Suites add living rooms. Kids age 4 and under stay at no charge with an adult.

Parking and breakfast are complimentary. There’s a casual café and a laid-back, art-filled Italian restaurant, plus a fitness centre, and a hip rooftop terrace with a bar, a pool and city views.

ECO Tree Hotel offers 85 rooms and suites to provide guests with comfortable accommodation around the year at reasonable rates. Enjoy our value-added services. Our hotel is next to metro lines (MTR Sai Ying Pun MTR station A2 exit) and is in the heart of the city entertainment and business district. Besides, the city’s historic tram is next to the Eastern Street.

The most thing I like with this hotel is its being Eco friendly. However, I suggest that they provide stainless teaspoons instead of plastic ones. The small refrigerator made it more convenient because we can keep drinks and fruits. There’s a Wellcome supermarket just about 350meters away from the hotel if you want to buy snacks and drinks.

Bathroom and toilet is clean and basic hygiene kit is provided. The beds are very comfortable and the towels are 100% organic cotton. It’s a 3 or 3.5 star hotel but their bed was way more comfortable than the 5 star hotel we stayed at in Macau. Inside cabinet door has a mirror so you can have a good look at yourself when you dress up. There’s a welcome book on the table that details about what the hotel offers, policies and some suggested places to go. Fire exit illustration is also well placed and visible by the entrance.

As for the location and how to reach the hotel, it might be best to take the bus if you’re coming from the airport. It’s cheaper,too. And I would think that even if you take the airport express train, you still need to change train at Hong Kong station to get to Sai Ying Pun station that will require a lot of walking. It will be difficult if you have a big luggage. I haven’t taken the bus to get there so I’m talking about coming from Tung Chung station due to the Ngong Ping 360 trip before checking in. Taxi is also a good option.

If you need to exchange money, the closest we’ve been to is in Sheung Wan. Just exit at Cleverly St. from the station.

The rooms are of adequate size and are very modern. The bed is comfortable and the room is very quiet. Other than the large shower the bathroom is a bit small if two people need to use the mirror and sink. Not sure why the glazed glass wall between the bedroom and the shower. If someone turns the bathroom light on at night it also lights up the bedroom. If you need coffee in the morning there is no perk in the room. However there is a great coffee/breakfast place when you go across the playground at the back of the hotel and turn right at the street.

To get from the airport we took the Airport Express to Central and then the free shuttle bus to the Best Western hotel, and then walked about a block to the Eco Tree. For the return the hotel staff told us about an elevator to the subway which saved us a lot of stairs and a long escalator ride. Still a pretty good walk to get the first train, and then and even longer walk to the Airport Express.

All considered this is a great hotel, and if the price is right I would definitely recommend it for all.

The location is very strategic with the nearest MTR station (Sai Ying Pun, A2 Exit) only a few steps away. The tram (‘Ding-Ding’ as the local people call it) also goes past the hotel and travels all the way to the Central, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay… all the popular business/shopping areas. I would recommend taking the tram as it’s a kind of traditional HK transport which offers interesting and authentic experience to discover HK island. The fare is unbelievably cheap as well! 🙂

Our room rate included free set breakfast for 2 people which was served at the ‘Steam Café? across the road. It’s simple but quite delicious and provides just what you need to start the day.
