“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Staff are friendly and helpful, and provide necessary assistance immediately upon request.
Excellent location in Yau Ma Tei that's within walking distance to Mongkok, Jordan and many shopping areas including Tsim Sha Tshui.

Room Tip: No fitness centre and swimming pool

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Stayed in a few hotels in Hong Kong, and spent a lot of time in Temple St area in Kowloon

The hotel is well located, right next to Temple St night market, with close easy access to the MTR and transport links

Hotel offers free shuttle bus for shopping in TST and to the Airport Express

Only negative is the small rooms, but this is a theme in a city where space is a premium and most hotels are similar.

Have stayed in better hotels locally with bigger rooms, but for a much higher price. Last minute dot com did a great offer that was too good to miss especially with this location

Would use again

Room Tip: Try and get an upgrade. We did (but it was only to the same size room with a window!)

Was very happy with my stay here. The staff was professional and accommodating. The location was very good. Close to the temple and ladies market. There are some great night outdoor eating places on the side street. The room decor was modern and we'll done. Though the room was small every thing was well laid out. It is fine for one person. I have allergies and the bedding caused some itching. The cleaning lady was super friendly and promptly changed it for me. Overall a very good experience for me.

We stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is so convenient. Temple Street night market is situated in next street. Ladies night market at Mong Kok is walkable (15 to 20 mins) or 1 MTR station. Local restaurants galore. More exclusive restaurants along Nathan Road. Can get to hotel by public bus (A21 for HK$33). Bus stops at Nathan Road and walk 5 mins to hotel. Not far from tourist area at Tsim Sha Tsui (20 to 30 mins walk) or 2 MTR stations. Shop there for the rich and famous.

Room Tip: ask for non smoking floor to avoid smoking odours.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

Stayed here with my family last week.

The room is small (well nothing surprising for HK) and since the 3 of us are in one room, its even smaller to say and challenging to walk with the extra movable bed. There is no enclosed cabinet or bath tub.

On the positive aspect, the hotel is located in a strategic location with shops and cafeterias, markets, convenience stores around. Temple Street is just next street and very accessible to Yan Ma Tei MTR station. Service is fine, staff are helpful and overall the room is clean.

The cafe is located on the 19th storey and for breakfast they serve Western buffet. Throughout our 4 days stay, the same dishes of breakfast were served everyday. Good if they can make some changes. Generally, the food was ok but the provision of a bird eye's view of the city skyline is cool and awesome.

This establishment is great location to metro, which takes you all over Hong Kong including Disney, airport and other towns. Nathan Road is conveniently located, perfect for getting your bearings and finding good restaurants, bars and accessing the harbour, Didn't try breakfast so can't comment. The establishment looks plush inside entrance but feel room standards slipped and unfortunately I work in hotels so rated a 3 mark as it is silly things that should be done that really let the place down. We had to ask for replenished coffee every day, rooms were not very clean and after moving bed and other furniture to accommodate us in the tiny room we were disgusted with the filth on the floor. Staff seemed very miserable but generally I found that everywhere in Hong Kong, also though high up the noise from yelling maids and other guests meant an early start most mornings. I would stay again for price and convenience but that is all, also get them to explain the individual items on your bill clearly so as you understand and don't get conned by things. Regretably to late I picked up on excess charges which shouldn't have been on there.

Our room was really small and it could have been cleaner. It was nice and quite on our floor (13). Great location just off Nathan Road near to ladies market and Temple St night market and not far from a bus stop for the airport bus and MTR station.Would possibly stay here again. Wasn't that impressed with the breakfast just FYI.
