For my latest trip to Hong Kong, I stayed again at a familiar hotel. It is The Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui again. I used my Hyatt points to get two free nights at the Regency Club. After that we got another free night at the The Silveri Hong Kong-MGallery.
In this article, I will tell you the difference between my stay previously and the latest. They are mainly in the “getting to the hotel”, “the Club Room and Lounge” and finally goodbye to a “Mammy Pancake”.

My Previous Stays at Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui
My previous post on Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui was written back in 2017 and really need an update in this blog post 🙂
It used to be so easy to get to this hotel as there are free shuttle buses from the airport to the hotel itself. And also free shuttle buses from the hotel back to the hotel.
It is very easy to get to this hotel from the airport. First you buy the Airport Express tickets at the airport once you passed customs (and there is a discount for group travellers so make sure you ask for that discount). Then with the Airport Express train, you reach the Kowloon station. At the Kowloon station, you go down one level (look for signs that say Free Shuttle bus to hotels, there is a lift to take you down) and at the shuttle bus area, you can take the free shuttle bus, K3, to the hotel itself.
No more. Now there are no more such shuttle bus service.
How to get to Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui in 2023
To get to Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui now, you will need to take the Hong Kong Airport Express to Hong Kong station and then walk over to grab the MTR to go to Tsim Sha Tsui stop.
From the TST stadium, you can use D3 exit (closest to the main station) to go into the K11 Mall.
Follow the signs inside the K11 Mall.
At B2/F, you will see the Matcha Tokyo shop (at least in 2023..).
And the sign to show you the way to Hyatt Regency
And this will lead you to the hotel B3 lobby which ironically was the place where you could previously take the shuttle buses to the Airport. Oh well.
By the way, the Matcha Tokyo is nice..
Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui Club Regency Room
Checking in at the Tsim Sha Tsui Club Regency is not done at the lobby but a separate club check in on the highest floor.
This is the normal check in counters and they have a dedicated World of Hyatt check in counter too.
The Club Room is nice. I asked for a twin bed (rather than a king size bed) as my son was travelling with us. The club room is a 31-sq-m guestroom with two twin beds, work desk, tranquil bathroom, views of the city and access to the Regency Club Lounge benefits.
A work table as usual..
And TVB shows on 49-inch television with Chromecast built-in.
The very large bath room
Lots of water ! Very helpful during the trip as it was so hot !
And yes, you can peek into the toilet from the beds….
The view is so so lah…
Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui Club Regency Lounge
Of course, the Club Regency rooms come with Regency Lounge access. Regency Club Benefits: complimentary continental breakfast, an all-day coffee and tea service, evening canapés and cocktails, complimentary use of meeting room, exclusive check-in and a personal concierge
Don’t know about the personal concierge as I never used that service 🙂
It is a two floors lounge… with views of the harbour
We had evening tea and breakfast at this lounge 🙂
Breakfast next day !
You can also order from the menu they provided for food such as scrambled eggs, sunny side up etc…
Mammy Pancake No More
As compared to my last trips, there was a Mammy Pancake just behind the Hyatt Regency hotel. Mammy Pancake a Hong Kong waffle shop that tourists must try and has also received the Michelin seal in 2016-2018,
Photo from my 2017 trip:
A pancake shop is still there but it is no longer called Mammy Pancake 🙂
Hong Kong is always changing… But we still love the egg waffle 雞蛋仔 !
Just like we love the one at North Point all these years..
I still love Hong Kong all these years !
Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui Club Regency Room : Conclusion
I am very happy to stay for free (using my World of Hyatt points) in a Regency Room with Club Lounge access. This makes it useful for breakfast and tea times etc.
Also as usually, Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui is at a fantastic location. Not only is it at TST but also a very short underground covered and air-conditioned walk from the station itself. It was easy for me to go to Garden Hill in the morning for a hike.
Or crossing over to Causeway Bay or Sheung Wan for dim sum breakfast at the 蓮香居 Lin Heung Kui teahouse.
Hyatt Regency never fails to make my stay great. You can try the Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour (at North Point too).
