As everyone else notes, the rooms feel a bit old and worn. But, if you can look past that, they are actually quite comfortable and roomy (by Hong Kong standards) and I thought the hotel was a great value overall.
We really had nothing to complain about. The free internet worked very well and the staff were nice. The room had two small water bottles. The elevators were fast.
The greatest strength of this hotel is its location. There are some pedestrian streets with night markets nearby, and several restaurants. They have more of a local feel than a touristy feel which is fine by me. If you want to go see the tourist sites, then it's only about a 1-minute walk to the metro, and you get to many places in just a few stops for only a few dollars.
From the airport, take the airport express train to Kowloon station (about $10-12 per person depending on whether you're buying round trip or single journey), and then the free shuttle bus straight to the hotel. That's very convenient, comfortable and fast (<24 minute train ride plus a few minutes for the bus). Or you could save some money by taking a taxi to Tung Chung (maybe $5) and taking the metro from there (about $2 per person, and 35 minutes; exit D). Or you can take the airport express bus (A21) for about $5 per person (maybe 40 minutes total). I've done all three and they are all good options.
