I couldn't agree more with "2socks" write up (Jan 2010) about this hotel and the tips are spot on, so i'm going to try & keep this relatively short.
My family & I only stayed for 1 night, as our relatives are HK locals and we booked the rooms via Hotels.com HK as it's a lot cheaper -something like HK $800 (approx £67GPB) for a superior room than via the hotel direct. We booked 2 superior rooms and paid for an upgrade for one of the rooms to have a king size bed.
We arrived at 1:45pm to check in on the 17th but our rooms were not ready yet, and they also didn't allocate as to which rooms we'd stay in either. When we came back at 10:30pm they had kindly upgraded one of our rooms for free.
The hotel rooms are huge, clean and although there was a faint smell of smoke or some other weird smell, the other room was fine and it didn't bother us too much. The heater/air con didn't work in one room though, but no big deal. Also we had a DVD player in the room too.
The hotel is slap bang adjacent to the shopping mall, which you can get to in a few minutes, everything is quite literally at your doorstep, so location wise it's perfect! Everything is sigh posted clearly should you wish to get to ladies/flower market and "trainer/sneaker" street (end of Fa Yuen st-Shantung Street end).
There is a brilliant restaurant for Dim Sum (breakfast) adjacent to/part of the hotel - Royal Plaza Chinese Restaurant which serves up steamed delights in a jiffy and it's not too overpriced either. We dined there in the morning purely for convenience, otherwise most locals go to the 7th & 8th floor to the restaurants for afternoon dim sum. Also most locals dine (dim sum wise) at the top floor of most shopping malls from the Prudential building on Nathan road to the ones in MongKok.
