"My first impression of L'Hotel Island South"
My stay of some 3 times last week was mostly pleasant but negatives were the checkout process and the difficulty with getting taxi service. The checkout procedure was chaotic with no lineup to ensure an orderly process. I also had to wait some 35 minutes for a taxi (waited between 7:15 am and 7:50 am approximately on Dec. 17, 2014). I realized the […] staff was working hard to get a taxi for me. Room was clean, relatively spacious (for Hong Kong) and comfortable but Ocean view left a lot to be desired with practically no view of the harbor. Staff members were courteous.

"Nice but inconvenient"
Pros: Nice big room. Big King bed. Able to fit extra bed. Love the bathroom's mirrors and lightings! Free wifi! Cons: Bathroom is transparent but that is not an issue. The issue was, the blinds are outside the glass panel and not inside the bathroom! Not much TV channels available. Shuttle bus from Hongkong station to hotel was an hour of waiting. […] No MTR near hotel should you miss the shuttle bus to HKG station so have to take a taxi to the nearest MTR. Far away from city. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very good and recommend"
Free shuttle from Ocean park to Hotel, nice hotel and good view. Warm welcome and big room with free wifi. However, there are some constructions near the hotel and a bit noisy in the morning. Hotel was so nice and offer a free honeymoon cake for usGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"+Value rooms, expensive dinner, awful breakfast"
Room was nice, pool would be great if not in shade (ace in summer), dinner was nice if expensive - breakfast a disaster! No clearing up, no eggs to order, no refilling of food......Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to Ocean park."
Ocean park is actually relatively separated from downtown Hong Kong (shopping area). But it is a must go place for many visitors. L Hotel Southern Island could be a choice if you want to visit Ocean park especially for a two days.Genuine Expedia guest review
"L Hotel Island South"
The hotel and the room is comfortable, new and clean. However, the hotel is situated in the industrial area which is quite inconvenient and remote.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We will never go to this hotel or recommend to anyone the room was not so clean, the halls are very dark, the lobby on the 5th floor, hard to get to staff was not friendly at all, some of the things in the bathroom were empty packages , bath tub was dirty and was not cleaned our entire stay the food at breakfast was beyond bad, it was not edible, its […] located not near to anything and very hard to get a cab and no bus bad experience for us Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Requested a non-smoking king size bed room, but end up sending me to the very smelly smoking floor. Very disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good service & cleanliness"
well mannered & professional staff , exceptional wifi, pool & gym facilitiesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not so Chic South"
The hotel makes much of the 'Chic South' line in its promotion. One day it maybe but I think for now this more of an aspiration than a reality. The hotel rooms themselves are pleasant but in reality there isn't much there that could be described as chic. The biggest concern though is the location. The area is very run down and I don't think anyone would […] want to take a walk - so its taxi wherever you want to go. But then where would you go? There is really nothing around the area and Aberdeen centre was intensely disappointing. I wanted it to work staying in the calm of the south but it doesn't - pay the extra and stay central!

"Location and service"
The hotel is in a good location in that it is very close to Ocean Park and easily accessible to beaches and the stations etc by bus, the hotel shuttle bus, and taxis, but there is a lot of construction going on due to the MTR station being built, and so it is not an ideal place to be at the moment. I am sure that when the construction is finished it […] will be much better. The hotel service was very good and overall it is a really pleasant place to stay and was ideal for our trip.

Set in an industrial area, rooms are average with tiny twin beds struggled to fit an adult and child in each bed. My daughter fell out of bed in the night. Restuarant really expensive. We ate at the local Chinese joint on ground floor next door way cheaper and other guests were there. Good food but not that clean. Hotel only has 6seats at pool for a […] full hotel is not satisfactory. The porter would not give me to extra free bottles of water for the kids when we got to the room. I paid $310 per night and would not give us water for kids. Slack. Great to have free shuttle to Central and Ocean park. That was a nice touch.overall average would not stay here. Only took the option because of location to Ocean park and pool for kids. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay at L'hotel South Island"
Booked this hotel as it was close to Aberdeen and Ocean Park. However, owing to the tiredness over 4 days attending a wedding, we ended up staying at the hotel all the time. We got very nice room with a bit of seaview on 36 floor. Hubby enjoyed the pool and we had snack and dinner at the hotel. Staff were helpful and lovely, room was good size and bathroom […] has a bath, I like the details like sensor light outside the bathroom. We both enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

"Good price performance"
In general it is good except couple of issues: 1. Suffer from the Aberdeen tunnel traffic jam during peak hours; anyhow, since most of our activities is located in Aberdeen areas which does not impact us too much 2. Some of staff treated western guest difference from the Chinese looking. On Aug 26, the 3/F staff greet westerner good morning while […] she did not even look at me when we approach the counter 3. They may want to have more indication of the lifts as there were only 2 lifts to P1; to avoid human traffic congestion and disturb other guest Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quite a nice place to stay"

"Stay here only if you are going ocean park"
Very isolated location. Basic gym and too-small-a-pool. Only reason for tourists to stay here would be its proximity to ocean park. Otherwise hotel is well maintained, service is good, staff are very friendly and polite, and hotel provides complimentary shuttle bus to ocean park, aberdeen and hong kong mtr station. Enjoyed our time at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quality Hotel without a The High Price Tag"
As a family of six we stayed at this hotel for four nights on a Hong Kong stop over booking two rooms.We read all the reviews prior to booking and after staying here we found them helpful and accurate.This is a fairly new hotel situated in Aberdeen which is approximately 15 mins drive (bus/taxi) to Central.The hotel is in area where there is a lot of […] construction happening due to the expansion of the underground train line being built to link this part of Hong Kong. So there is not much in the way of shops or things to see touristy in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but the hotel provides a regular free bus to Central (train station)1/4 of an hour trip and Ocean Park which is only a 5 minute journey. There is also a public bus stop right outside the hotel which has many routes that can take you to most parts of the island. There is also a local street vendor at this bus stop that sells water, beer and snacks at a fraction of the price of the hotel.We booked a room on a high level which was recommended by other reviews to escape any construction and road noise. We were on the 20th floor and the noise of any construction machinery was only just audible making the rooms quiet. The facilities are modern and clean but not extravagant.Overall we were able to book two rooms at this hotel for the price of one at other locations.Yes, this hotel is not in the heartland of the tourist areas and is situated on a busy road but the pros out-way the cons for an enjoyable cheap stay.

"Great hotel out of the city."
We stayed 3 nights at the hotel. Our first impression was from the reception when we checked in. Callie was very friendly and helpful. Overall staffs are very helpful and friendly. The room is cleaned everyday. We got fresh towel everyday. The location is the downside for this hotel. It is away from the city but the hotel does provide the shuttle to […] MTR Hong Kong station, Once you get there you can go anywhere. Overall we loved it and would stay again.

"Very good for money"
Very nice hotel. Good for family. Their shuttle service is exactly on time. 3 star cost for a 4 star hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was pretty cold and I called to check if there was anything I could do to higher the temperature. From what I was told I couldn't but the staff offered to bring a heater (if that's the correct word) up to the room. They were really efficient, within 5 minutes the heater was brought up. Really caring and efficient staff they have there. Although […] the hotel location is a bit inconvenient, they provide shuttle bus to HongKong express/central mtr and the timing of the bus are very punctual. Overall my friend and I had a great stay!

"this hotel is fantastic"
We stayed here on route to australia and again on the way home to the uk 2 months later. We cannot fault the hotel and its staff. The way the staff are always willing to help in any way is a lovely experience. Although 40 mins away from the airport the location although maybe not picturesque is quiet at night and this is so important if wanting a quiet […] layover. The food in the hotel is lovely and the breakfast well worth the price charged. It is worth while using the limo service they can provide at a very reasonable charge. When we visit our daughter in Australia again we will definately use this hotel without hesitation. I cannot praise this hotel enough. One useful tip eat in the hotel if not wanting to travel far don't use the chinese restuarant next door called mansion something ????? It is like a transport cafe and food not good we paid almost as much as the hotels set buffet menu and it was no where near as good as the hotels lovely food. WELL DONE L'HOTEL ISLAND SOUTH.

Room is good size for 4 people (2 kids). The room is clean, it provide shuttle buses to different location buses stopes in front of the hotel and take about 15 minutes by us to Causeway Bay, food and shops. 5 minutes by shuttle to Ocean Park. Since there are not a lot of hotel offer 4 people room, it is not a bad choice for family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty Decent for the price"
Stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed my stay. I booked on hotels.com for 1 guest, but plans changed to 2, and so rather than paying a fee to change the booking information I called the hotel directly and had no problem changing to 2 guests. the other reviews are pretty accurate: great service, comfy nice rooms, good prices, bad location, but good shuttle […] bus service to get you into town.

"Value for money but no service-minded receptionist"
This is my second Times stayed at L hotel. Even the location is far from the city center, hotel provide shuttle bus to town. The room is clean n.comfortable. The only unhappy thing for this time the reception staff. They are not helpful. Overall it's valued for money to.stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pathetic Room service"
Hotel is very good with very cooperative reception staff but hotel service staff is very poor specially the male attendents.Only two bottles of water supplied inthe room when ever you ask for more drinking water they either deny or give with such a looks that you are asking of some great obligation from them.Hotel is too far from the market place so […] that for naything you sither get dependent on hotel shuttle or taxi .taxi is very costly & hotel shuttle is as per timing.so overall good hotel with some negatives.

"Starting to slip"
I have stayed here many times since its opening. The room condition is deteriorating and cleanliness is slipping. Maybe time for an invigoration of management. Still a well appointed room and a great location away from downtown. Many new facilities opening nearby and area is only getting better. Very good staff and no problems with English.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Lis Cafe a very Big Disappointment"
Hotel Reception and Concierge staff were wonderful. Room was fairly alright. However, the lady employee, standing at the entrance of Lis Cafe was incredibly void of warm hospitality. She was rude to a degree when we asked for a plastic spoon. further, we ordered two slices of cakes to take up to the room, her reply was "only two" and then she did not […] get the slices out in perfect condition. They came partially torn off. The cakes were so small and with the partial torn-off, they ended looking no more than 2 inches each and we paid about S$8/- for such miserable pieces. The Lis Cafe management must train their staff on good and proper hospitality as one bad incident in the Cafe can upset the whole beauty of the stay in the hotel.

"great value for money"
The hotel is sparkling and the facilities are great. Our kids loved the swimming pool and the courtesy coach was really convenient. The staff were very obliging and for the rate we paid we couldn't have asked for more from the hotel. The surrounding area is a bit of a building site at the moment and looks chaotic and a bit grimy, but it seems that they […] are in the middle of revamping the whole area, including putting in an MTR station next to Ocean Park and there is a plan to make Aberdeen more tourist friendly. I personally felt like Aberdeen is a more 'real and local' face to Hong Kong and the Promenade, Waterfront, Jumbo Restaurant and Aberdeen Centre are all well worth a visit. Take the bus to Stanley too- It a cheap day out, the coastline is spectacular and a really interesting contrast from the CBD and Tsim Sha Tsui. Recommended - be prepared to explore the local area even if it seems a little offputting at first. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
good service, shuttle bus service must be increasedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed our stay, the room was large and comfortable and clean. I know Hong Kong well and although some reviews say the location isn't good. It isn't that bad. Go out of the hotel side entrance wallk to your left a short distance there is a bus stop for green top mini bus and normal bus to Central, Causway Bay and most other areas, cross the footbridge […] and there is a bus stop for Aberdeen which everyone should visit. One tip get an Octopus card great for MTR, Bus, tram and small purchases. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel but a cab ride to main areas. Request a room hillside if you want real quiet. Staff are fantastic in all areas.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely hotel a bit off the beaten track."
We love the spacious room which could be a problem in the city centre. Although it is a bit tricky to get to initially, once you discover the transport available it is not a problem. There are lots of buses and mini buses just meters outside the hotel. It is very handy for Ocean Park. At the moment there are lots of construction going on in the area, […] including MTR. It would make a great location once the new MTR is finalised. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
