I stayed at the Vela hotel in August and it has been a nightmare ever since. I will review the hotel later, but warn anybody: DO NOT book this hotel through Orbitz. I did and was charged the HKD price in USD - Orbitz is bullying me to pay $1,055 US dollars. That is the HKD rate - USD price should be between $100-$130 USD. I hope nobody falls victim to this scam. Problem is Orbitz and Vela hotel have been stonewalling my inquiries and rejecting my efforts to settle this for the honest, standard rate of the hotel.
The location of the hotel is very convenient but the rooms are dirty and have not been updated in a very long time. Another time this summer I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Central and that hotel was infinitely nicer than the Vela for about the same rate. Plus, you would not be doing business with scam artists and crooks.
