I got three phrases to best describe our experience in Ibis Hotel, North Point — (1) value for money, (2) great location and (3) just what we need. Here’s my fair share of Room 1906 and Ibis North Point in general.
It’s our 5th time in Hong Kong but this is our first time to stay in Ibis North Point. We booked for a Double Bed City View room (11 sqm) but we have been upgraded to the one with harbor view for FREE. And for us, that’s a +1 point for their service.
Despite of the small size room and bed (two beds joined together), we still felt comfortable in doing our daily activities. This is by far, the smallest room we had stayed on. Previously, we stayed in Best Western, Newton Place Hotel, Royal Plaza Mongkok and Metropark Mongkok. Having a mindset that we will move in a limited space helped us formulate techniques in doing our own thing efficiently. After a few days of stay, we realized that it’s really not bad at all because we can get all the things we needed without even hopping off from our bed, literally.
The room and the hotel itself is always clean. The bathroom is equipped with essentials we needed. The staffs are friendly and very accommodating too. The MTR – North point is also a few steps away from the hotel — actually adjacent. Well, the only challenge part are the escalators and stairs that we need to pass through to ride the train. But who would complaint, we are in Hong Kong and it’s the Walking City! Outside our hotel, the area is surrounded with shops, restaurants and even mall that are just a few blocks away.
The tram is also at the opposite road so we have different transportation options. We did not also expect the breakfast being served due to low accommodation price, considering the hotel’s price range in Hong Kong (I’ll create another post about our breakfast in Ibis North Point). Daily breakfast is superb! Overall, our experience is beyond our expectation. We simply believe that this hotel is underrated.

Tip #1. There’s a 711 and a small grocery in the MTR station. Another 711 is also one block away.
Tip #2. Along the hotel’s side of the street towards to MTR station, there are other local restaurants that you can try. There’s this one Chinese restaurant that’s open until midnight (or maybe 24/7, not sure).
Tip #3. There’s also a spa along in the reception area where you can try. Honestly, we find their price too high but for those who are badly in need, it would be nice to check it out.
