Holiday Inn Express Causeway Bay

In my last two trips to Hong Kong, I’ve stayed at Holiday Inn Express, Causeway Bay.  Both times were pleasant.  The hotel had all the basics a traveller would need.  And when I say basic, it’s really generic stuff so don’t go looking for any branded toiletries etc.  It’s right across Times Square so if you need to buy something in the grocery or shop, it’s just literally 10 steps away.

Lee Garden Plaza is just a corner away which has Uniqlo, Esprit, and Muji.  The very big Forever 21 is also walking distance on the same street as G2000, I studio, Sasa, and a lot more…you’ll pass that road going to Sogo/Park Lane/Toys R Us/Windsor House.  So as you can see, shopping is just a few steps away.

Some pictures to share:

Small trolley like in airports so it's easier for you to bring your luggage up.  Lower picture is Times Square, side of Salvatore Ferragamo

Nearby places:

after checking in, our first stop was DIN TAI FUNG! Yum!!!  This was nearby the hotel.  Same building as Regal Hotel.
After checking in, our first stop was DIN TAI FUNG! Yum!!! This was nearby  Holiday Inn Express. We just walked, same building as Regal Hotel.  Actually, Regal Hotel is where we got off the Airport Express shuttle, but we checked in first then went back coz my husband (Mr.B) din’t want to bring any luggage to a restaurant.  Oh well, wives, be submissive to husbands right? 🙂

japan home
Japan home.  Yes, the same japan home we have here.  It’s just right around the corner from the hotel.
Street food a block away.  IKEA.  Haagen Daz
Street food a block away. IKEA (same bldg as Park Lane hotel). Windsor House right across IKEA has a lot of stores too like Haagen Dazs, Rolex, Dr.Kong, Toys R Us.  This strip is where the money changer we go to is.
Lee Garden Plaza
Lee Garden Plaza.  If you like Muji, Uniqlo, and Esprit, then you’re lucky to have these a block away.

We booked online.  Their rates are roughly around Php6,000-Php7,000 per night.  One of the best businessman’s hotel I’ve stayed at in Hong Kong.  Just a tip, make sure you have them change your comforter the minute you get in.  I did it on both visits coz for some reason, I felt itchy until they changed it to a new one.

Will post about Intercontinental Grandstanford Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui soon.  This would be a nicer hotel but of course, nicer=pricier 🙂
