My husband and I had originally booked a room at Novotel Nathan but due to a technical hiccup, our reservation was cancelled and we decided on Nathan Hotel for our 3-night stay. I had been mentally preparing myself for small Executive room (we are in Hong Kong) and was pleasantly surprised when the hotel upgraded us to their Nathan Floor Room when we checked in. They had recently renovated the hotel and the Nathan Floor is one of the areas that was revamped. I must say they did a nice job as the room floor was cozy and warm, yet trendy. The same design theme extends into their rooms as well. It was small, but with a creative mind, they managed to fit a lot of amenities inside without the room feeling cramped. Although, I did find the bathroom a little tight, but that is easily overlooked since I don't spend a whole lotta time there. The check-in was quick and painless, and most of the staff are friendly and eager to help.
For a small room, it is very well appointed. The queen bed was comfortable and they have really soft, fluffy pillows. You're also given a menu to choose the pillow you want! The large LCD TV is more than adequate and a 2.1 channel sound system with DVD player is provided as well. If you prefer your own music, there is an audio jack for you to hook up your MP3 player to the sound system. Do you really want to leave the room?
Personally, I think the best thing about this hotel is the location. It is situated along Nathan Road, close to big shopping malls and a myriad of restaurants. The MTR station is barely 3 mins walk away, the airport Citybus A21 (from airport to Nathan Hotel)stops right in front of the hotel, and the K1 (complimentary Airport Express bus which picks up passengers taking the Airport Express train) stops right beside the hotel as well. This is really fuss-free travelling if you ask me!
Don't fret if you're thinking of getting a room without breakfast, there are plenty of options available just round the corner. The Tsui Wah Restaurant a few doors to the right of the hotel serves decent meals or you can also try the Nathan Congee and Noodle restaurant, which is located 2 streets away along Saigon Street. Their congee is delicious! You can generally get a nice hearty breakfast at about US$2-4 at such places. If you're too lazy to walk, there's always Starbucks right at the hotel lobby.
All in all, a nice trendy hotel with good service, superb location and excellent value. What more can you ask for?
