They certainly know their customer service in all facets of their business from the rooms to the foyer & reception.
We felt like royalty!
Would definitely come back to this hotel & pay the price per night as truly worth it. Would have nice to have had the breakfast included in the package though for the price.
The breakfast was excellent with a choice of continental, cooked meals and fruit served with quality coffee…an excellent start to the day.
The room was large with a wonderful wall sized window, electric curtain facility, fresh fruit and a wonderful marble bathroom (with large shower & a flat screen TV!) King sized bed and turndown service.
Why You Should NOT Book Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong
The hotel facilities were depreciated instead of giving me a grand impression. Were looking at friendly, helpful and professional hotel staff but there’s none i had met.
Overall this was an fair experience. But i really doubt if Shangrila could keep their 5 stars reputation.

Rooms at Stanley Oriental Hotel offer air conditioning, a refrigerator, and a minibar providing exceptional comfort and convenience, and guests can go online with free wifi.
Stay in the 4th floor suite with the terrace instead of balcony.
Incredibly spacious suite taking up the whole floor.
There was unobstructed Stanley beach and sea view across the entire suite. There was a fully functioning and equipped kitchen for us to cook dinner and breakfast.
The bathroom was incredibly well designed and captures natural light perfectly.
The best part would be the terrace looking out at the vast sea view with tables and sofas to eat or relax day or night.
Would highly recommend getting the terrace suite.
This isn’t really a hotel and more like a airbnb situation so there’s no luxury hotel service (which is where it’s priced around.)
However, the limited number of staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and flexible.
They kindly arranged for the jacuzzi on the rooftop for us even though we were rather late on arrival.
The pricing can be a bit on the steep side considering its not really a hotel but the terrace and the views are certainly make it worth the price.
You sometimes feel like you’re in the south of france or in a European beachside town on the terrace.
Great choice if you’re in the area or just want to get away from the busy metropolitan scene and chill by the beach.
Why You Should NOT Book Stanley Oriental Hotel
We booked this room a month ago, we expect to celebrate my birthday at here on 26 Dec 2020, we paid around $2100 from booking.com, we saw the pictures show with bathtub and terrace with large size of all rooms so that’s why we decide stay here, also they said they welcome pet to stay but haven’t mention they will not provide any pet accessories for your dog.
When we arrive, we stay at 3rd floor, the room is very old and dirty, also no bathtub and terrace.
Their facilities are very old, I don’t think we are staying a hotel? Mainly the television is not working,they keep fixing but still not working to see TVB?
I am very disappointed as we ask about the differences between the truth and at the website with the staff, he said it’s only for demonstration.
We decide go back home and won’t stay at this hotel tonight. I am strongly recommend not stay at this hotel with your dog and yours vacation.

It definitely is able to create a holiday and relaxed feel to families with children; in particular it’s closed to Ocean park. It also is a nice place for couples to enjoy a “sweet” getaway.
If you are a pet lover and you don’t want to leave him/her at home, you can also bring them to stay with you in the hotel.
This is one thing I missed and forgot to check before we made the reservation; as we can bring our dog coming over with us.
The “make a wish “ event in which you can write some best wishes and place it in the pond added some fun to guests during evening.
All in all, I will recommend if anyone wants to getaway and have a resort feel like hotel in hkg, you can consider it as the primary choice.
Why You Should NOT Book Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel
I paid standard price for the room without any staycation deals. Honestly, for a room charging over HKD 2000 (no breakfast), I would really expect basic amenities these days, such as a coffee machine ?
I probably would not have complained if I was on a discount deal, but on a standard price, probably I expected standard things like a coffee machine.. and not instant coffee. Also, the toilets had a funny smell of old pipes (reflux of pipe?) which was unpleasant.
They probably need to add water to pipes because it is too dry and avoid the reflux of bad air.
