Just got back from my second stay at East Hong Kong.
Location: conveniently located right next to Taikoo MTR (Exit D) with lift access so you'll have no trouble getting there with your luggage. Whilst it is a little bit further away from the action in Central or Causeway Bay it doesn't take long to get there ('bout 12-15 minutes from door to Causeway Bay; 30 minutes to Mongkok). It's great as long as you don't mind a short commute. I used the HKD$300 tourist octopus card with 2 airport express rides and unlimited MTR rides for 72+ hours - it's a great deal if you're in HK for 3-4 days (you get $50 refund if you return the card at the airport, and the airport express round trip is already worth $180).
Service: quick and painless check-in / check-out. Excellent service all around. 3 sets of towels and room slippers already in the room at check-in.
Room: upgraded to a Harbour View Queen with a view of East Kowloon and the old Kai Tak airport which now serves as a cruise terminal. Decent size by Hong Kong standards. We had a little bit less space due to the extra bed, but if that bed wasn't there it would've been more than sufficient for our needs! Sockets available at the desk as well as bedside with another socket in the cupboard for the hairdryer.
Toilet/Bathroom: Night lights for the toilet. Toiletries in eco-friendly large bottles. I only wish that the shower door was opaque/frosted rather than clear glass (magic glass would've been great!).
I didn't dine at the hotel, but noticed a lot of locals heading up to Sugar (bar on the top floor) for drinks and a great view!
All in all it was another great hotel experience! I will be back again!
