The hotel is right at the MTR station and a large shopping mall. Very good rate considering the hotel price in Hong Kong.
I was "upgraded" to a conner room at level 16. Level 16 sounds high but the hotel is surounded by many tall apartment blocks, it means you have to close the curtain all the time and have no view at all.
The shower session in my room is terribly designed. No door/partition between the room and the shower area. I had to ask my visitors to go to the lobby when I needed a quick shower. I hate it so much and it doesn't make sense. I made the complaint to the front desk, they said it is the design for the corner rooms. OMG - I didn't request the corner room at the first plance, and at least, the check-in staff should tell the guests when they decided to "upgrade" them to a corner room. So lack of common sense and caused the foolish trouble to the guests.
Additonally, the room is rather basic. No make-up mirror, no facial tissue, no spare chair (only one for the writing desk) it is more like a model style rather than a 4-star hotel.
If you don't have any visitors in your room and only need a room which is close to the MTR and shopping mall, this hotel is for you. I appreicate the model style of the hotel, but the room setting is too basic and lack of details.
