Novotel Nathan Road Kowloon
You would have heard of the famous hotel chain, Novotel which is popular with travelers worldwide. The Novotel Nathan Road Kowloon is part of that chain and although the hotel uses the Nathan Road tag, it is located at the very end of Nathan Road.
Novotel Nathan Road Kowloon Hotel is for those who are looking to stay in the center of Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. Located near the Jordan MTR station and a stone’s throw away from the Night Market and the Jade Market, the Novotel hotel is quite convenient for tourists and business travelers alike.
What I like about Novotel Nathan Road Kowloon
The best part of the hotel was that it provides potable water in the room which encourages its guests to drink less bottled water. Since Novotel is known for its eco friendliness worldwide, this aspect struck me as another feature of their green initiatives.
Breakfast is sumptuous and the rooms are airy and the design is excellent. Given that Hong Kong is a densely populated city with hotels, shops and people packed tightly, returning to the hotel after work or long walks is especially pleasant.
For Muslim travelers, provision for Halal food is another advantage for the hotel. The overall impression that I got during my stay was that this hotel has a modern look and for those international travelers who are used to brisk and efficient service in other places; this is the place for them.
Finally, the helpful staff who could converse fluently in English rounded off my rather good impression of the hotel.
What I dislike about Novotel Nathan Road Kowloon
There is no complimentary Wi-Fi access in the rooms. There are around 7 terminals in the lobby for internet use but since it is free of charge to use, the waiting time is quite lengthy. I asked for internet access in the room and I found the charges to be expensive.
The coffee house was crowded each time I went there and I discerned that there were quite a few non-guests who were present in the coffee shop. My suggestion to the hotel would be to set aside a dedicated area for the guests since they are staying in the hotel.
