“Worse experience in my life”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

Room size : its Ok by HK standard
Location : Very good . Less than 5 min walk to the Train station or Bus station .
Staff : Very friendly

Hygiene : The room smell of "Wet Dog" if you leave the room closed. If you open the window, you will smell like fried pork in the morning . Its too old for god sake. The lift is terrible, you can feel the jerk and it feel like it will stuck. Its a condemn building.

Room Tip: Very going back again

South & North House is just at the back of Prudential Hotel & only 5 minutes by foot to mtr & Nathan road and the temple st. market is just a stone away. This is a very secured guest house with security guard at the lobby at the ground floor with 24-hour circuit tv. Our room is basic but with a small refrigerator, television, hot & cold shower and computer unit. Aside from cleaning the room, they also changed the bed sheets & towels daily.

  • Liked — cheap & very accessible
  • Disliked — small room & toilet

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2008

I stayed in this traveler's motel ("House) with my parents for 6 nights recently. This motel is run by an old chinese lady with her son. They understand mandarin and the son can speak some broken English - so language is not really a problem especially for Asian travelers.
For Hong Kong standard i am told that this place is excellent. I paid 330 HKD a night for a room for 3 persons.

The room came with its own bathroom (which is a luxury for a motel) - a little old but functioning well with hot water, small fridge, computer with internet connection(YES!) and TV and not forgetting 3 single beds with hard mattress.

Besides these, the place is a little run down and the lift to the 8 floor is incredibly small (normally for HK standard) - lift can most fit 4 persons. To be frank, the first impression i got from this motel was it is very untidy as things were all over the place at its little lobby and walk way. But after a day's stay, i got use to the untidiness as our rooms were made up every day by its ever reliable friendly maids.

On the location, this motel ("house") is just 2 mins away from the Jordon station. And along the street of Tak Hing you find numerous local eateries which serves noodles and smalltime restaurants. There is also a 7-11 around the corner. Convenience is really at your doorstep, so to speak.

For those budget travellers who does not mind to rough it out a little through the messiness of this place to get to your room, you can try this place out. I am sure you will consider staying here again in your next trip.

  • Liked — The location and the size of the room for HK standard
  • Disliked — The messy lobby :)
