Let's get any possible caveats out of the way. It is in a Southern "suburb" The view is of the innumerable container ships (some amazingly massive) to and from the South China Sea. No city lights. Not bad at all, but not a vibrant cityscape. Beyond that, it is an amazing, gracious, enthusiastic staff, both students and instructors, who want to be certain all is perfect. Hospitality in most of the world is a profession, not a temporary job while we go through college.The rooms are perfect in size. Flat screen in the bathroom that comes on every time you put the card key on the slot lo turn on the power to the room.
I cannot emphasize enough how the culture of gracious service is a part of this experience from beginning to end.
Take the A10 bus from the Airport. Get off at PoK Fu Lam Village, cross the street, the sigh is there a bit high. It is the same building as the Culinary Institute (yes, it is another benefit.)
DO GET AN OCTOPUS CARD. We wish we did. Make sure you take a business card from the Hotel so you can show someone where you need to go. Not everybody speaks or understands English, and they will nod politely, but you will end up riding some bus to the end of the line more than once. Don't panic. Hong Kong is very safe, and someone will help you.
