This hotel is located in the middle of everything....right along West Street which is like the main street for bars and restaurants. Particularly good for me as it is just 8 min walk from both office locations I had to visit.
It is very new and it uses only the finest material for all its amenities....modern flat TV, iPhone dock clock, sturdy slippers. Free wifi in public area and 10 pounds a day for wired internet in the rooms. I was lucky to be in the 2nd floor close to the lift lobby, and was able to catch the wifi signal in my room.
Breakfast is not bad too...full English breakfast plus fruits and cereal. The staff were very helpful - we arrived early morning and were not due for checkin until 2pm, but they accomodated our request for early checkin into one of the rooms (we are a party of 3 people but the two other rooms were not ready yet) to get changed and freshen up before going to work.
As others noted, most of the rooms had windows facing the inner of Leopold Square, a place of restaurants and bars. It wasn't bad at all for us as we stayed for only Mon-Thu, no crowd at all. But I can imagine it could get noisy for Fri/Sat evenings.
BTW, I don't know if this is now common in UK hotels, but it allows settlement of hotel bills in your local currency (as opposed to settling in GBP and let your card company converts). DO NOT USE that option. I found that its rate is much worse than the my Mastercard's rate (13.4 HKD to 1 GBP as opposed to 13.1 used by my card company).
