Hotel is next to Mongkok but good access via free shuttle bus. Excellent area for 'local' shopping and street markets. Staff go extra mile to keep guests happy. Forget the 'night market' at Temple street, better markets at first free shuttle bus stop at Langham place. Close look at hotel map shows even better markets and better atmosphere, just to the north of the hotel, 10-15 minutes walk (especially for cameras and computers go to Golden - it's marked on, hotel issued, map), and an interesting walk also. Want local advice? ask the Senior security officer, he wears a white shirt or Eric Tsoi one of the Guest Services Managers. You can book good trips through the concierge and a night cruise dinner. Night cruise was interesting but overall average and boring. Day trip to the Bronze Buddha was part good and part boring. The usual stop at a tourist spot of no interest to Europeans. then a factory visit, ho hum .. but the cable ride up to and down from the bronze Buddha is an experience, and not liking heights I still found it so interesting that my trepidation soon suppressed itself. Also a side trip to a seaside village on stilts, great interest. Of course if you're not a seasoned traveller you may find my report a little odd, but this is now my 104th country (if it is a separate country from Mainland China) I have visited: I would rate the HongKong/Mongkok area a good place to stop over - we spent 14 days here a little too long for comfort, with the typhoon and steamy weather; suggest you travel there in late October and restrict your credit card use to places of business with a fixed address; not the markets. Cosmo hotel offers better rate of exchange for foreign currency than the many Burea de Change. Overall we would stay here again, unusual since we seldom choose the same hotel twice - but the Cosmo is very friendly and good access to everything. Oh by the way, don't bother with the breakfast there are local eateries with cheaper and better food and the Thai restaurant in the Hotel is pathetic. Not a five star hotel but right up at the top of its class.
