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.
