Stayed at the Vela hotel for 2nights. First time at the hotel I was a bit shocked how a 4 star hotel looks like, it might be just Hong Kong. Anyways after entering the hotel I saw the lobby, and that was another shocker, so small and only 1staff member. Checkin was pretty easy and fast, received my card and went to my room. The room looks clean and the bed is ok. The bathtub is really big, loved it. The only problem with the tub is that it fills so slow takes more than an hour... . In the closet there is a small safe. The closet has small cracks at the door. Then i noticed the slide door to the bathroom opens and close hard. The hotel provides free drinks in the fridge. The fridge door cracks like crazy, but atleast it works. The aircondition works how it should work and has water blowing out when the room gets too dry. The waterboiler looks like it wqs used for more than 10years, all rusty and dirty. So all this doesnt sound and feel like a 4 star hotel, and it get worse at night. Because it is in Wan Chai you will have guests walking in and out at night. And you will be able to hear it really clear, you will also be able to hear people talking. So no sleep if you cant sleep through noise, because everytime someone flushes the toilet or empty the bathtub you will hear the water flowing. I expected alltleast to have some soundproofing in the room. The view was great in my room, but weather was so depressing so closed the curtains. The hotel is 10min away from the train station.
All together it felt more like a 2-3star hotel than a 4star hotel, so unless you can get it for a good prize I wouldnt recommend it.
