“Reasonably priced, conveniently located”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Stayed as a couple in March 2014 in a double room.

Loved this hotel primarily for its location, it's right next to Yau Ma Tei subway station. Alternatively, taking a walk straight down the main road easily gets you to the shopping districts (Jordon, Tsim Tsai Tsui) and eventually ending at the Victoria harbour. Getting to the hotel from the airport via the public bus was also a breeze, as the bus stops very near to the hotel.

There are also many eating places situated close to the hotel, including a popular porridge joint (p.s. porridge was cheap and good) located right opposite the hotel's main entrance. The hotel also offers a reasonably-priced international buffet.

However, on the downside, the hotel is located right opposite a fire station, so if you are a light sleeper, this may be an issue as you're going to be hearing sirens going off once in a while (though this frequency drops in the night). Also, I would say the room is pretty small, however, believe this is so for most hotels in hong kong, especially those located in the shopping areas. Service by the hotel staff was fast and efficient, but don't expect anything more than that.

On the whole, for the price point offered, this is a good place to consider especially if you are intending to do a bit of shopping in the Kowloon area.

We stayed at this hotel on a stopover. The hotel is in a great location. Close to public transport and is a hotel on the Airport Express which is the best way to get to and from the airport. We had room 8020 it is small, however it still was okay as there was enough room for our bags. It was the space between the bed and the wall TV which was the problem and the bed was a little hard for us. The buffet breakfast was really good both Asian and western. The service of the staff throughout the hotel was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Check-in was smooth, polite receptionists.
Room small but size ok for Hong Kong downtown.
3 minutes walk to MTR.
Room was neat and cleaned very well everyday.
Lobby has simple but nice ambiance.

I stayed for 6 days with my 5 yr old son.
The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The location is very convenient and accessible to all the different places; ocean park, Disneyland, the Peak, etc.
There are eateries next to the hotel and convenience stores.
It's also near to the ladies street market.

Spend a total of 6 nights at this hotel. It is very near the MTR. Got a room at the old wing (they added a new wing) but the room is still very spacious & clean. Just a note, there is a HKD5/ luggage/ day if you wanna ask them to keep your luggage overnight (but heard it is a common practice for HK hotels)

Hotel location is very convenient, within 10min to nearest MTR. Special thanks go to hotel concierge team who are all very helpful, more than willing to help with the many luggage bags I had as I moved rooms 3 times. They are also very courteous and with bright smiles. Hotel rooms are much bigger than other hotels at same price, and are clean and neat. I will definitely come back again every year.

Room Tip: Room 2115 Is great. Premier rooms are newly renovated compared to deluxe rooms.

Great location. Just a minute walk away from Yau Ma Tei MTR which makes travelling convenient. Not forgetting that the hotel is a stop on the free airport express shuttle. Walking distance to Ladies market, temple street, langham place - different kind of shopping.

Wifi speed is good as well and a good room size, considering it's HK. Did not try the breakfast as there were other food choices available in the streets.
