I chanced across Hotel Madera while searching for a hotel near Jordon MTR station. Admittedly, the hotel website was not particularly impressive but it was functional. The value-for-money pricing was enough to tempt me to try out this new hotel, something different from my usual haunt in HK, which is also nearby.
The experience turned out to be great! Especially for a newbie hotel in HK where competition is keen. First and foremost, I'm most impressed by the size and layout of the room. For a HK hotel, its considered HUGE...with lots of space to strew your shopping about. There was also ample wardrobe and luggage space to store everything neatly. The room had mood lighting and strategically placed switches and aircon controls, so much so you can control everything from the comfort of your own bed. The bathtub had a built-in jacuzzi for those who have the time to try but the translucent bathroom is not for the faint-hearted or the bashfuls.
Secondly, the hotel is located on Cheung Lok Street, a mere 2 streets away from the MTR exit - you can't get lost. Even better, the hotel is located directly opposite the much vaulted supper joint - 新斗记, which is opened from 6pm to 2am. Very convenient for a late-night supper after a whole day of shopping. On the next street is a famed congee place - Nathan Congee. Unassuming shopfront but heavenly creamy porridge - perfect for breakfast. And that takes care of the 2 main meals of the day.
Finally, the hotel has some nice touch - free mini bar! Slightly gimmicky for some but pretty fun and handy too! And a nostalgic gym for those are interested.
Tip on room selection - seems like room charges are a bit higher for rooms on the18th floor and above for the view. We got a room on the 18th floor and the view was nothing to shout about so you might not want to pay extra for this.
