We've stayed in this hotel just recently and we were left with mixed feelings.
Just when we entered the hotel we were not sure that thats the place because nobody approached us and welcomed us. Just after 5 minutes when we already sit on the chairs close to reception, we had to be the one to tell them we have booking to check in to their hotel. Service is not nice.
Good thing they upgrated our room for free, so we can have our double bed because all the small rooms were unavailable or had Twin beds.
When we entered our room we were surprised because it was huge according to HK standards and it had some kind of panoramic view,but it was dirty...bed had some hair on it, bathroom has towel that was left by previous guests(colorful children towel), honestly, it felt like they never wash floors becaus you cannot walk bare feet you will feel sand and dirt sticking to your feet.
We were not really comfortable even sleeping on their bed being afraid that its dirty and we might get sick.
Good thing in the room there was complimentary two bottles of water every day, free tea, coffee, snacks. There is a teapot, sp you can make some hot water. And fridge for you to keep some foods. Tv had some international channels,but not too much, it was enough for us though.
Free slippers were provided by hotel, i guess so we wont be feeling how dirty the floor is :):):)
The hotel has some 7/11 not so far away, on the first floor there is bakery,never had time to try it.
Door to door there is karaoke bar just in case you want to have drink or two before you sleep.
Location is kinda far, so if you dont mind walking at least for 20-30 minutes to train then this hotel is perfect for you, make sure to bring comfortable shoes! There is also some tram you can take,but we didnt know how to, so we just walked.
Overall experience was ok, but I dont think we will stay again, cleanness for us is determining factor.
