We stayed at this new hotel for a week during a recent visit to Hong Kong. It's important to judge a hotel by the right benchmarks - it wouldn't be fair to compare this budget hotel to a luxury hotel, for example - and this is one of the best Holiday Inn Express hotels we have stayed at.
As the hotel is new, there is some renovation/completion work going on, but this is explained clearly and since it only occurs during the day on weekdays, it caused no inconvenience. The fact the the breakfast is currently being served in the top floor meeting room while the restaurant on the second floor is completed is, if anything, a bonus, since the view from the top floor is so much better.
We appreciated having a refrigerator in the room, a room safe, free wifi throughout the hotel including in the bedrooms (with a strong signal), newspapers at reception - and the cheap well-equipped laundry and ironing room which had a sofa and tv while you wait.
The housekeeping staff provided two complimentary bottles of water every day, which was also appreciated since the tap water in the bathroom was not drinkable. The electric-opening/closing curtains were a fun novelty.
The brand new beds were very comfortable. The staff were helpful and attentive.
We would be happy to use this hotel again in future.
