Free mini bar (yes, free! Vodka, beer, chocolate and more) a cool little goodie bag of snacks, free backpack, free slippers, great amenities stuff, big room, great shower AND super helpful and nice staff.
Of course the cynic in us all will say nothing is really "free" you're paying for it somewhere, but in comparison to everywhere else I looked in Central HK (or Kowloon for that matter) this was a great deal. If this chain existed elsewhere I would book it without a hesitation.
As for the area, you will find yourself a 10-15 minute (brisk downhill) walk from the star ferry terminal and central MTR, 5 minutes from the mid levels escalators and soho and right amongst the night life of Lan Kwai Fong. You can walk to The Peak tram in 5 minutes, as well as the zoo and Hong Kong park.
What it doesn't have:
- a fancy lobby
- a view of the skyline
- restaurants (but there's a cafe for breakfast or have it in room)
- complete silence (I did hear a tiny little bit of street noise but nothing that bothered me)
Things I loved:
- the mini bar (of course!)
- the free on site self laundry (in a very non laundromat kind of scene)
- free wifi
- breakfast delivered in a goodie bag to my room
- the pillows
- the free happy hour from 6pm to 8pm
And all the fun and generous little touches that you find along the way.
Loved it. Definitely recommend.
