"on the expensive side but right amongst the action"
I thought the hotel was on the expensive side as there were much cheaper hotels in kowloon. They would just not be as conveniently located. Yes, you can walk to anything easily but if you picked a cheaper hotel on the MTR line, you may be happier saving your moneyGenuine Expedia guest review
"No better location"
This is a comfortable hotel, superbly located at a great price. The newer refurbished rooms compare very well to expensive option at other places, if being a little small. The facilities are good and the restaurant/cafe is very reasonable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, excellent location"
Comfortable beds, clean with all facilities. Best location close to ferry, art gallery, shops etcGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location close to the harbour"
Easy access to shopping, ferries and bus tours. Magnificent views of the harbour especially when the Synthony of Light Show is running each night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel Centrally located at Kowloon"
Close to cheap Ferry & Train. Near good restaurants, bars & markets. Checkout Ashley Road. Concierge a bit average - communication issues mainly. House keeping excellent. Hotel Resataurants very good. Stanley Markets on Hong Kong Island the best. Never pay more than half the asking price in Markets. Some shops in Stanley are pretty well fixed price […] though everything CAN be negotiated. Street Tailors in Kowloon are really annoying - have to be very firm with them ( but do it politely of course). Taxis are a lot cheaper than Australia. Did YMCA to Ocean Park for AUD $20. MTR is cheap & really efficient. Didn't do 'Big Bus' - too expensive! Just chose our points of interest and walked or used the previously mentioned transport options.

"Great location but old rooms."
Looking forward to my next stay since they had renovated a new wing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location. Perfect for a relaxing break.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked a family room but only 2 beds. A phone call brought an extra bed in minutes and kids were sorted. They loved the view from the window, loved the fact that there was a door to separate us. Loved the free WiFi. The breakfast was superb and plentiful and kept us going all day. The concierge could give us directions to all places of interest and […] guides as to which transport was best to use. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A run down hotel that require urgent upgrade."
The hotel is being upgraded. The floor I lived in was partially blocked off for construction. I feel paying A$260+ a night living in a construction site like place is unfair. The WIFI service was not included in the room rate. I need to purchase it in 4 hours, 10 hours, or 24 hours time slots. It has created inconvenience as we just need to check a […] few emails at night for roughly 30 - 60 minutes but need to pay for 4 hours. The breakfast is average although included in the room rate.

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as past HKG residents. Loved the b/fast room outlook and the service was very good. So sorry we can't book 24-26 Jan for our return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the carpet was a bit grubby but the room was otherwise clean and quite spacious by local standards, the hotel staff polite and helpful and the location is extremely convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"HANDY LOCATION IN HONG KONG"
This was our second trip to Hong Kong and didn't consider other accom - The Salisbury -YMCA in Hong Kong is the best location. Handy to the ferry terminal and shops. This visit they upgraded our booking, which was extra room and comfortGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location with Fantastic View at the Habour"
This is Hotel hasd the best location and the best view of TST / Victoria Habour View, since we upgared to the habour View suits which make so much difference, if you afford it then DO updrade, Glad the hotel is redecorating since it needs some work to be done if it going to compete with the rest of the hotel in the Area. Overall we had a brilliant stay […] and defo will go back again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed at a number of hotels in Hong Kong over the years. I prefer the Salisbury because of its location (very close to the Star Ferry & the MTR) and the friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best location in Hong Kong"
Past HK dwellers passing through. Great location and easy access to most areas. Free bus from Kowloon station on the airport line. No need for fancy restaurants as you are surrounded by great places to eat.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value for money"
Great location at a price that's unbelievable. It's near the train station and lots of restaurants nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient position"
The hotel is very conveniently positioned to the Star Ferry and Harbour. Transport connections via train (MTC) is good. Although the free bus transfer from Kowloon Station ( airport train stop off point) doesn't go directly to the hotel but the next door hotel Peninsular stop is only 50 yards from it. I had booked a single room but didn't expect a single […] bed as Im 6'2" long !! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Although we had booked our partial harbour view room several months before hand we were upgraded to full harbour view as the other was booked out (?). The catch was 'daytime construction noise' though. Sleep in or afternoon nap was really not possible, even though we were both ill following our previous destination. The discount cards given at check […] in, for breakfast in the Mall Cafe etc were not good enough for eggs for breakfast, had to pay an extra $15 each for eggs on top of the discouted $65 - not happy. Part of the tray of self serve croissants were stale. Except for the Mall Cafe waiters, all other staff were polite and efficient. Bath water drain plug didn't work well. Salisbury YMCA, you need to get your act together so guests could leave better reviews. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel and staff - fully recommend."
The hotel was very nice with beautiful big windows. The staff were all very kind to me and my two exhausted children. The rooms were lovely and big. We weren't cramped at all. A fantastic price in Hong Kong.Genuine Expedia guest review
"YMCA Salisbury is home away from home"
My recent stay at YMCA Salisbury was as pleasant as my previous stays in this hotel. Location of the hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Kowloon making it easy to navigate aroung HK. Only this time I booked my room through Expedia. Got a good deal with breakfast included. Will definitely book again my next stay at YMCA Salisbury through E […] xpedia.

"A must stay"
Great location and reasonable price for Hong Kong. We would definitely stay at the YMCA if we returned to HK.Genuine Expedia guest review
My husband and I had a one night stay after cruise vacation, excellent location very near to cruise terminal, excellent views of harbour Was upgraded to family suite. Very nice buffet breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel in Hong Kong"
The staff were friendly and helpful especially when checking in and out. The standard 12 noon checkout was very convenient and we were able to check in early as our flight came in early morning. Our rate included a full breakfast but it wasn't explained to us that there were 2 breakfast rooms and we went to the wrong room on the first of 2 mornings […] which meant we did not get a full breakfast; this is a small matter which could be fixed up with clearer instructions when checking in.

"Great hotel and location"
The hotel's location means it is really easy to access all of Hong Kong. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean. I would definitely stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
We got more than what we expected. Though YMCA is to be renovated, we can't even find the reason on why it is to be renovated. The hotel is still superb and rooms are well kept despite many years of operation. We also find the location of the hotel as the most strategic and convenient place of all the hotels in Kowloon. We will definitely book again […] in this hotel when we go to HK. We are also recommending it to all our friends and relatives. We did enjoy our stay in this hotel!

Can't beat the fantastic location.Easy to get around by MTR or by foot.Got upgraded to a corner suite with great harbour view. Staff vey helpful and polite and breakfast was adequate with Asian and Western food varieties.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value hotel for Hong Kong"
Great hotel for your visit to HK. Very well run and managed very busy city centre hotel. Surrounded by shopping malls, restaurants, bars etc. 5 minute walk to the star ferry with connections to Central. Once there you can easily reach places like Stanley (well worth the trip), Aberdeen (not so impressed) and all the Islands. This is not a 5 star "wow" […] hotel. It does not want to be. It is clean, functional and the right price. If you want 5 star then pay the extra. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location and Service"
We stayed at the Salisbury for nights recently and found everything was very nice at a great location with helpful staff and the breakfast buffet was excellent. The only issue I had was that there was no free Wi Fi included and the charges if I wanted a password were very expensive. I would definitaly reccomend the hotel to friends and would stay there […] again on my next visit to Hong Kong. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location Hotel"
Location is great, near MTR, tourist attractions and shopping area. We booked for twin bed, room was nice and clean wiith great view of the harbour. Room rate was very reasonable. But I have this encounter with a female front desk staff who insisted to us to have extra bed with additional charge for my two kids despite of my refusal. She was not that […] friendly and nice. But the rest of the staff were all nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"a super location."
3 star hotel in a 5 star location.a good standard 3 star hotel with unbelievable views of the harbour.Genuine Expedia guest review
At first, we felt that we had been short changed. The reason is that the hotel room assigned to us was definitely less than 250 square feet as claimed by them in their hotel room description. The toilet of the guest room assigned to us was without vanity slab and bathtub. The size of the toilet is extremely small. Fortunately, after some arguments, […] the front desk agreed to assign us to another bigger room that have bathtub and vanity slab in the toilet. If the room assigned to you is not 250 square feet, it will not be worrthwhile to stay in this hotel despite of good location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good experience at the YMCA"
Stayed 3 nights, found we had been upgraded on arrival, really good service from the staff, those in positions requiring direct contact with guests communicated well in English. We rated it as superb because it was well above average by Chinese standards and quite economical. We stayed here some 10 years ago and were pleased by the improvements made […] since then (we chose to return). Food was excellent in the café and for breakfast however the Café service certainly needs improvement - you have to ask for the child's meal to be served first - ours wasn't served till the adult meals were nearly finished. Anyhow if you are looking for a well priced and conveniently hotel in Kowloon this is where you stay Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"YMCA Hong Kong"
Everything about this hotel is good; price location and service. Get a partial harbour view room and breakfast in the café is great value if you want western food. An added bonus is that the airport bus will drop you off and pick you up at the hotel which is much easer than getting a train and dragging heavy cases around. From a very picky Aussie.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed for 2 nights :30 apr to 2 may.Great location, just a few minutes away from MTR transfer buses to airport (K2) which in between front of kowloon hotel and back of penisular. Lobby looks new, good breakfast with a good view. Close to Mtr TST exits, plenty of shop and eatery aroundGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Salisbury Road YMCA Hong Kong"
The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. They greeted you in a friendly way when they saw you and that ranged from the management to the cleaners. The facilities for families were very good. The location was excellent. The room was comfortable, clean and well equipped.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Renovation Much Needed"
We usually stay annually at the Salisbury, but, unusually, this was our first stay there for over two years. We ended up having three rooms in seven nights: the first problem was that the central aircon was pumping smoke-filled air from a smoking room into our non-smoking room (smoke is not good for me); the second was that the loo stopped flushing. […] (In the third room the card entry system didn't always work either, but we couldn't face reporting that). In all cases the staff were helpful and apologetic, upgrading us on each occasion, giving us a breakfast voucher, and explaining that the hotel is to be renovated in a 15-month process, starting June 2013. We really like the YMCA, mainly becuase of its superb position, but I don't think we'll rebook until the renovations are complete and the hotel is completely non-smoking (this is promised and really should be done).

"Location, Location, Location"
The stand-out feature of the Salisbury YMCA hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui is its location almost on Victoria Harbour and two minutes from the Star Ferry Terminal or the Golden Mile. While not five star, our standard (non harbour view) room on the 13th floor provided an quiet (no traffic noise) relaxing haven after long days touring Hong Kong. The room had […] an expansive view over the scenic 1881 Heritage, was a good size and had a comfortable bed (however the pillows were inadequate as they were too soft). Air conditioning worked well. The bathroom while not grand was adequate. Room service was efficient. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant offered a range of western and asian meals that proved tasty and a good size helping. Hotel wifi was a let down because (while not expensive) it was not free. However this was not a problem since many surrounding hotels and shopping centres (and Hong Kong Airport) offered fast free wifi. We will stay at the Y on our next visit to Hong Kong.

"Great location with easy access to transport"
Check in was quick and easy. We booked a family suite, which was excellent for a family of 4 and they were even happy to empty the mini-bar for us on request. Don't think an adult would be comfortable on the sofa bed, but it was fine for young children. The location was fantastic, central to transport, shopping, and food. Easy to get to via airport […] express and shuttle bus. Rooms were reasonably clean and comfortable. Definitely would stay again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The smiling and helpful staff give you a warm welcome as you arrive, while you stay and as you depart. No task is too much trouble and service is prompt. The concierge is helpful in advising places to visit and the cheapest/easiest way to get there. Rooms are attended to 2 or 3 times a day and the staff are always courteous and smiling. My room price […] included a buffet breakfast which was delicious plentiful and catered for a wide variety of tastes. It was great to watch the activity on the harbour from the room. I would not stay in any other hotel in Hong Kong if this one was available. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
