At the Ritz-Carlton? The mountains are quite further away.

Upper House has very nice mountain view rooms (called Studio 70/80 Island Room) - very peaceful area to look out to.

I prefer view to space, but this is pretty much one of the most personal preferences one can have.

I don't know how there can be any argument of which Hong Kong hotel has the best view. For me, it's the RCHK hands down. Weather permits of course. Sharing some pics from my recent stay.


Kowloon side




Day-break

Sunlight reflecting above the water surface






Harbour Side






Night Shot




A lucky rainbow after a thunderstorm






Breakfast with a view





And finally a panorama of Hong Kong, right from my room



I just love skyscrapper hotels. Nothing quite capture the feeling of having the entire city under my feet when I wake up.


P/S : Apologies for the blurry shots but I only have my handphone cam.
obscure2k and uggboy like this.

Very nice pics!
In general I have to agree. Only advantage of MO, Peninsula or FS is that you are closer.

LOL... I am too lazy to bring my DSLR nowadays, otherwise the pics will be much better.

True, but then the RCHK is the only hotel in HK that has true panoramic view of HK skyline. You can see not only just the buildings, but both sides of Victoria harbour, the clouds, the mountains in the background and as far as the pacific ocean. Very few views in my memory can rival this.

It's difficult to have a panoramic view of something if you are in the thick of that something I suppose that's a benefit of that West Kowloon/elements location and not having anything of note nearby.

Thanks for the beautiful views, brings back nice memories.

Not only are you closer in those hotels but you don't get the feeling you are in a glorified business hotel as you do in the RC. It is entirely too crowded, too noisy to be considered true luxury. I love a good view but not at the expense of the ambience.

My term "advantage" was only related to the view. Hotel itself is a completely other thing.

Unfortunately, the RC does tends to attract guests from a certain demographic which is kind of.., to put it kindly, rowdy. But majority of the time, they don't bother me much. Also, this problem is largely negated if one book a club room and have access to the very nice club lounge. It's a large hotel so offer more F&B options, more facilities, more of everything, and of course the view. Nowadays, I prefer the RC over my usual favorite LMO.

The only other comparable lounge would FS but their rooms are getting a bit long in the tooth. You probably can't do better than RC.

In 2015 my suite didn't had any problems and lounge was great.
