If you know Ibis, then you’ll know what you’re in for – the WYSIWYG of the hotel world. Incidentally, this sort of hotel is expanding all over China, and is incredibly popular too.

Location

North Point, once a stronghold of Shanghainese refugees, tends to get overlooked when it comes to the tourist agenda. Excellent transport (ferry to Kowloon City, MTR station, plus tram) and characterful wet markets and backstreets. Great fun.

 

Bedrooms

Obviously they are going to charge more for harbour views, WiFi, and suchlike. And the décor might have been decided by an ambitious 11-year-old. But with these sort of room rates, there is no reason to lament.

 

Public areas

Busy, functional, and that’s about it.

 

Eating and drinking

There are better bars in Hong Kong, and better restaurants, but what Ibis provides in the way of food and drink is quite satisfactory.

 

Leisure facilities

Very much DIY.

 

Service

Working in a hotel in Hong Kong is rated as a good job, rather than being forced to be a flunkey. And it shows here as much as anywhere.

 

Who stays there

Groups, individuals, and indeed anyone keen on maximising their travel budget.

 

Price advice

There’s not much that can be shaved off these rates.
