The ground-floor lobby and lounge harness feng shui principles, with light and water merging through a huge wall of glass overlooking Victoria Harbour. Wavelike wood-paneled walls and split-level seating areas create a nautical feel, while contemporary artworks, puffy white sofas and a round-the-clock crowd of buzzy business types and cheerful holidaymakers keeps the vibe inviting.
Bed and Bath
Dark wood furnishings, luxe textures and a natural color palette amount to a fresh and restrained — if somewhat uninspired — style. Huge marble bathrooms with sunken tubs, separate showers and stacks of L’Occitane amenities add a regal touch. Two thirds of the guestrooms and all 92 Suites have magnificent harbor views. The remaining rooms, which are less expensive and slightly larger, overlook the outdoor swimming pool and pretty sun terrace.
The hotel has a fine collection of restaurants: Spoon by Alain Ducasse (two Michelin stars) serves seductive French cuisine, Yan Toh Heen (one Michelin star) delivers classic Cantonese dishes with panache, and never-out-of-fashion Nobu has an innovative Japanese menu. If guests don’t want to dress to the nines, try the Steak House and Harbourside. Sated, you can work off the extra calories with some laps in the outdoor pool — the largest in Hong Kong — or sign up for one of the hotel’s free tai chi or yoga classes. A Kerstin Florian facial at I-Spa will have you ready to hit the town again in no time.
In the Area
The hotel’s Kowloon-side location makes for an action-packed stay. Wander along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, posing with bronze Bruce Lees and taking in street performances on the Avenue of Stars. Then hit the shops on flashy Nathan Road. A more refined retail experience can be found at 1881 Heritage, a 120-year-old former marine police headquarters haloed by steel skyscrapers and brimming with luxury boutiques. When night falls, get high. The Philippe Stark–designed Felix, at top of the Peninsula Hotel, and Aqua, on the 30th floor of 1 Peking Road, are two of the glitziest bars-with-a-view in all of Hong Kong.
How to Get There
Very impressive entrance with fountain at night. Friendly attentive staff. We booked a club room & were taken up to club level for relaxing quick check in & a welcoming glass of champagne with lovely Ada who then took us to our room. WOW what a view. We had booked a harbour view room & the huge window looked right at the boats going by & the lights from HK city. Spectacular! Definetly the advantage of staying in Kowloon & easy to get over to HK. We had stayed in HK for 3 nights on our outward journey from Perth to UK so was glad we decided on Kowloon for the 2 nights on our return. Lots of nearby shops & markets too.
The room itself was lovely, great bathroom & kingsize (has to be) comfortable bed.
The breakfast in the club lounge was really good . Nice variety from the buffet plus you could order a la carte for eggs bendict or omelettes etc.
There was a big choice of delicous snacks for afternoon tea & evening canapes & drinks were again excellent. Really could not fault the service from the friendly,attentive & knowledgable staff. Especially Jennifer Ng who went out of her way to make us feel welcome & let us hang out in the club lounge when we had a 10pm flight. I feel the extra we paid for the club room with Harbour view was definely worth it as was only a bit more if you were paying for breakfast.
Nice pool area. Was plenty of room & the water was lovely & warm. It was the end of July so was pretty hot & humid outside(when not raining of course).Perfect pool weather though. I would definetly stay here again.
An AMAZING room, service, food, drinks, attention and a delicious birthday surprise !
Thank you very much InterContinental Hotels for the magical experience!
We are looking forward to our next visit

Every year we make the sojourn to stay in our favourite hotel Intercontinental, TST. The trip for us, is about enjoying our stay and the accommodation and amenities, as much as the fabulous destination - Hong Kong. The staff and particularly those in the Club Lounge do everything to ensure our comfort, whether that be in the Lounge itself or in other areas of the hotel. Service is always above and beyond and expectations fulfilled sometimes before we even ask. Flawless, fabulous attention to detail. Re-opened Yan Toh Heen - beautiful decor and fabulous food. Signature crab dish - superb! Miss it already and counting the days to our next visit.
The hotel Club Lounge service is very good. All staffs are very professional with pleasant attitude to make me feel welcomed. Restaurants are also very good, especially the Harbourside Buffet. Overall stay experience is excellent.
We had a small inconvenience at our arrival with the room, which was solved quickly and to our entire satisfacción. Now we enjoy astonishing views and a really nice service. Good breakfast and well prepared concierge service. We will enjoy the next days with great views. All in all ( so far) a hotel we would recommend.
