Reviews for Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong
We ended our Hong Kong trip with a few nights in the Island Shangri-La. Check-in was efficient and pleasant (thank you, Bernadette) with our room ready earlier than expected. The hotel is beautiful, made to look more like a luxurious home than a hotel. The rooms are the same, with dark wood paneling and a chandelier-type light. I was a bit worried when reading reviews complaining that some of the harbor views were very small or obstructed by buildings, but this was not the case for our room. I have been in rooms where it claimed to have harbor views but really seeing a tiny bit of water out the corner of the window is at best misleading and in truth plainly lying. So we were happy that our views of the harbor were expansive through the large windows. The welcome tea in the room was lovely; I wished this was provided as part of the service daily as a hot cup of real tea not from teabags is so comforting after a day of travel. I also thought the multi-story mural in the hotel was stunning. I took the bubble elevators up and down just to get a better look at it. I do wish we had a few more days here - we didnâ€™t have a chance to properly look around the hotel or try any of the restaurants. We didnâ€™t opt in (and werenâ€™t offered to) to the Horizon Club, so I cannot comment on that. In regard to location, we actually felt a bit far from things; many restaurants/shops seem to shut down fairly early around here likely because it is so close to Central, where it is primarily for office workers during the day. Perhaps we didnâ€™t know where to look. One thing that wasnâ€™t the best was the shower - the floor of it is somewhat slanted away from the drain, so the water doesnâ€™t drain properly. This meant I had to stand in a puddle of water while I showered which was slightly bothersome. It is a very small thing, but somewhat surprising of a hotel of this caliber. One morning the mirror light of our bathroom started flickering on and off, and would make a strange sort of buzzing/zapping noise which was concerning. We couldnâ€™t even turn off the light, so we called to ask for it to be repaired. When we came back later in the day, it was fixed for us. Another thing to note is that this hotel doesnâ€™t provide a phone or portable WiFi like many other hotels in HK. I would have preferred that. Overall, I very much enjoyed our stay here and look forward to being able to stay again!

My first time staying at this hotel. It is a great property, location connecting to shopping mall, office buildings and my Hong Kong office. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Everything is great, except the room is too cold and there is no heater.
Having stayed at Kowloon several times, we switched to Hong Kong, to experience the business side of the harbour. The Island Shangri La is very different from its Kowloon sibling. It is cool, more refined, a little stuffy, in a quiet area and the views don't compare with being harbour side. Like all Shangri La hotels, it is very business like, has great meal options and exceptionally well trained staff. Our only disappointment was that we booked a peak view corner room and largely faced a huge building next door. The area is terrific. A classy spot, right on top of the up scale Pacific Plaza and with very few tourists in sight.

Though being spacious and very comfortable at all points, I found the rooms a little dated, particularly the bathroom. The best at the Island Shangri-La is it's pool, that is very big for a hotel pool and allows you to really swim. The location is very central and the interconnection with the Pacific Place mall makes it very convenient, with easy access to the Admiralty MTR station. The staff is particularly efficient, and I enjoyed the attention to deliver to the room tea and fruits at the time of arrival. Breakfast is also to mention, with an unbelievable number of delicious options.

This is the first time we stayed at Island Shangri La. The hotel representative met us at the airport took us to our limo. The car and the driver was excellent. Once we arrived at the hotel we were greeted at the door taken our room and had an in room check in so we did not need to stand at the reception desk. The hotel itself is quiet grand. The lobby area, lobby bar, Horizon Club location and the other restaurants are definitely 5 star. The only disappointment was the room. I was expecting something better. It was very standard almost below average comparing for the rest of the hotel. The carpet in the room was also dirty but the bed was comfortable. Internet was good, rest of the room and the bathroom was clean. The food in the Horizon Club and the 7th floor buffet breakfast and dinner were exquisite Our check out process was at the front desk, very easy, very fast. Again hotel limo took us to the airport. Our driver was excellent. We were greeted at the airport by the hotel representative. He took care of the luggage, came to the airline counter w/us, waited until the end of the check in process. Then took us to security and passport control again waited until we went through. It was fantastic. The entire hotel staff were excellent, always polite, very helpful and engaging. Last time when we stayed at Kawloon Shangri La we did not have this kind of experience. It was pretty standard. However, Island Shangri La is definitely exquisite. I can recommend this hotel w/o hesitation. It will be worth for every penny.
