“Great location to party central”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

I came back to Hong Kong with a friend to enjoy and explore the city. We decided to venture off and stay in non-name boutique hotel. We're actually quite impressed with the rooms that were at this hotel. For the price and the square footage and the location you really can't be another selection especially if you're on a budget and traveling to Hong Kong. This was walking distance from Soho which has some great restaurants. Also the staff was great at giving directions and information to anything. I would recommend this hotel for anyone that doesn't want to stay in a hostile or pay five-star hotel prices go to Hong Kong

Stayed May 2014, travelled with friends

We booked this hotel because of its central location and reasonable price. We stayed two nights.
We were welcomed by the delightful Jane when we arrived and then again every time we returned to the hotel. She was there waiting with tissues to mop our sweating brows. We caught the train from the airport to Central HK. Easy. On Check out we caught a taxl from the hotel to Central Station. and then easy trip to Airport. All cities should have this convenience! We left our luggage with them for the day and we don't think we were charged for this.Yes, we would stay with them again. Only problem is that they don't serve breakfast which would have been convenient.

Good boutique hotel in the middle of Soho, 3 minutes from the escalator, close to IFC and Hong Kong Station.
The rooms were quite spacious for Hong Kong, the bathroom is small but adequate, wifi is free, the staff is friendly.
We will definitely stay here again.

I did not have a great first impression of the hotel as I felt claustrophobic, from the narrow cluttered street to the small concierge area which greeted us as we entered. My friends recommended me this hotel for its location but I had not expected it to be situated right next to a lane which appears to be a wet market of some sort, though I must say the fruits displayed at the stalls look deliciously inviting on a hot Saturday afternoon.

But the disappointment did not last when we stepped into the first floor reception which was infused with the fragrance jasmine and lilies.Check in was a breeze, done efficiently by the front desk personnel (I do feel bad for forgetting his name). We were brought to our rooms on the ninth floor by Ivan who was a constant and consistent great help during our stay - from showing us the quickest way to the MTR to suggesting the best places to have breakfast and lunch. Jane must be mentioned too, for standing in the rain to hail us a cab one morning, all the while smiling demurely. I was really impressed by the staff and I hope the Management takes note of their hard work and dedication at ensuring the comfort of their guests.

I had a deluxe twin room and another sister a superior queen room. Both were clean and comfortable but if you need space I would suggest you pay a bit more for the deluxe one as the superior room looked rather small (not great for a claustrophobic like me). Only issue I had was the plumbing in my room could have been better (I think it was what caused the strange odor in the bathroom). It was also surprisingly quiet despite being located on a busy street.

If you like night life, Lan Kwai Fong is right next street. There are shops, restaurants including famous ones like Yung Kee and Mak En Kee. Opposite the hotel is a small cafe Master Food, which serves breakfast and really great coffee, and they do delivery to the hotel as well at no extra cost. Just go get a menu from them - it has their telephone on it, and you will get breakfast delivered to your room.

Overall, nice hotel. Go try it out.

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking room.

I have to admit, I was a bit nervous walking into BOW for the first time. The street is very busy and full of local traffic--not the glitz and glamour of the Kowloon side. However, walking into the reception area of BOW is very calming and relaxing after the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. The colors and decor are calming and there is a wonderful scent permeating the lobby. Unfortunately, that aroma doesn't permeate the guest floors and they are quite musty smelling. Fortutately, once in the room with the AC on the mustiness disappears for the most part. The rooms are small and the carpet and furnishings are a bit dated, but the bed is comfortable and the room is clean. The bathroom is a delight with beautiful tile and fixtures. The shower provides lots of water pressure and hot water. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

The staff is doing what the can, and certainly as polite, professional and nice as they can since, I assume, they person I spoke to wasn't a manager. However, the wi-fi is so slow and the room I stayed in the first night smelled like smoke. They moved me--- 15 floors down from my original room and didn't offer a discount until I AKSED FOR IT. When I did, they offered me a 10% discount-- which was nice. The location was great. THAT'S the selling point and I'd come back if it was the only choice in this price range.

Thanks a lot for sharing with us your feedback, we are glad the hotel location has impressed you much. Meanwhile i's a pity that we have to offer you a room change due to the mentioned issue. We will definitely study the case, pay extra effort if necessary to ensure each guest room are in great condition according to our usual standard. Next time when you are coming back to stay with us we will surely make it a much more enjoyable experience.
