Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong
As you can guess Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong is located right next to the HK airport. Just follow the instruction inside the airport and you can walk there within 5 to 10 minutes (depends where you are in the airport).
I've stayed in this 4-star hotel a couple of times. Both because I have an inconvenient flight and I would rather to sleep a couple more hours right next to the airport than walk up at 4a.m.!
The rooms are clean, modern and plain. That's as much as you can expect from an airport hotel. The typical two single beds are ok and there is a desk against the wall with a huge mirror behind it from ceiling to floor that does help, a little, to make the room look less small. The whole décor is trying to be modern with glass and steel everything but with oddities like a tiger striped cushion on the plain white armchair. A typical mini-bar tempts you with over expensive drinks and snacks, but does provide mugs, glasses and a very tiny electric kettle so you can drink the complementary coffee/tea. A little glass "cafeteria" would let you make real coffee if you brought some coffee grounds!
In the bathroom it is all white tile and a very low bathtub with glass shower partition and a fixed shower head. Try not to get the floor wet if you shower. A retractable clothes drying line inside the shower area probably isn't going to get your clothes dry, but then you are unlikely to be staying there that long anyway. The bathroom comes with a good set of complementary toiletries including a real, if small, bar of soap and disposable toothbrushes. Shaving mirror, shaving outlet, hair dryer are all wall mounted and typical.
Two small complementary bottles of water are in the bathroom for those not willing to risk rinsing their mouth with Hong Kong tap water. For the record, HK tap water is pretty safe.
The wardrobe shows that this is a businessman's hotel by providing not only a mini-safe but also an iron and ironing board as well as proper bathrobe.
Although it has many rooms, the reception desk has not enough capacity to cater the surge of check-ins and check-outs due to the arrival of flights or the influx of local customers check in at 2pm for their over-night stay before their flight. So they have introduced a flexible 24-hour check in/out process whereby your checkout time is 24 hours after your check in. This avoids a mad rush at reception and is greatly appreciated as that was always the only major problem with the hotel and is now solved.
If you are interested in airplanes then of course this is a great place to stay if you ask for a high room that faces the airport you can see lots of planes going back and forth taxing to the gates.
For those staying there a bit longer the hotel facilities are quite good and not that busy given that most people are just passing through. The small but nice swimming pool is half indoors and half outdoors with a huge glass window separating the two sections. So good for any weather.
It's address is:
9, Cheong Tat Road
Of course you get there by following the signs in the airport after you have landed. You just walk right from arrivals along the inside walkway all the way into the hotel.
