“Good location, fuss free & clean”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in April 2014. My friend who was travelling with us had chosen this hotel on our behalf so I wasn't sure what to expect. But I was pleasantly surprised. Very good location - very near to the MRT, near good shopping malls and just next to Temple Street with lots of food places and its lively at night as well.
I know that space is an issue in Hong Kong so I didn't mind the size of the room. It was small but not uncomfortably so (at least the rooms have windows). Bathrooms were clean and beds were alright.
The free wifi was a definite plus.
Staff were efficient and willing to accommodate our requests albeit with stern looking faces.
Overall I found it a pleasant stay.

I booked this hotel by internet. It is good hotel to stay. They have good breakfast. The rooms are very small. They do not provide any complimentary water which should be on arrival. They are very strict on check-in timings although have provided clock facility. This is in god location in the center of city,

Room Tip: Pl. do check for the room size as rooms are very small

Our first trip to Hongkong and this hotel made it a good experience. Although the room was not spacious (small space a common issue in Hongkong), the room was always clean, comfortable bed, daily breakfast and it's location is a big plus. The staff was helpful and fast enough to switch us to a non smoking room. Would recommend for the staff to smile more though. Will definitely consider going back to this hotel when we return to HK.

The hotel is conveniently located at Shanghai street which is just the next to temple street. 5 minutes walk to the mrt is the main reason for us to choose this hotel. In walking distance there's alot famous eateries. Dont have to worry about feeling hungry at night, as the temple street is so lively at night. This is my second visit and not sure whether is due to my room located at the corner, it seems to be smaller, with only a small window and the bed was not facing the tv which makes it awkward if you wanted to catch some tv program before bed. The hotel also provide shuttle bus every hour but it is so near to the mrt we normally dont wait for it. Anyhow, for the price given and the location, it is still value for money.

Room Tip: Is better not to choose a corner room as the room seems to be slightly smaller.

I stayed in this hotel in June during my 4 day trip to Hong Kong. The double room we shared was extremely small but space is a common problem in Hong Kong. We really spent more time outside of the hotel exploring the city, this is why the most important things for us were: a comfortable bed (and it was very comfy I have to say, I slept like a baby), a convinient location (and it was very close to the MTR, Temple Street market right next to the hotel, Nathan Road is a minute away, and a bus to the airport 5 minute walk from the hotel). The staff spoke good English, they were very helpful. We had a small problem with the shower but they fixed it without any additional questions so that we didn't even notice it. The room was always clean and tidy.
Overall a very good value for money and I will stay there again whenever I am coming to Hong Kong.

The hotel was conveniently located near the MTR and streets that easily lead to the busier streets like Mongkok and Tsim Sha Tsui.
Hotel was clean and acceptable, though the room is not too spacious.
Hotel also provides convenient shuttle bus to the airport express at an even schedule through the day.

If you're planning to explore HongKong and need the room just for sleep, consider this hotel. We survived our 3 nights stay with my 11 & 8 yrs old kids in same room with twin beds. (Hotel ran out of xtra bed and have only 3 sets). Upgrading rooms cost huge difference with rates differs for each nights. Quite disappointing though! Anyway, small cosy decent room with bathroom amenities, coffee & tea making facility with daily housekeeping. Consider changing old looking comforter set, it left most of us scratching our skin cos we felt itchy using them. Otherwise everything's acceptable! Excellent location, near Yaw Ma Tei MTR with ladies market about 15 mins walk and night market just below the Hotel. For Muslims travellers, pack your luggages with ration as its hard to get halal food. Nearest we could locate was at ladies market. Hotel staff are polite but too serious looking makes, thus makes them looks unapproachable. Should smile more to make guests feel at home :)
