The hotel was clean, the rooms were a bit dated but sufficient. The bed was comfortable, we had a flat screen tv and air conditioning, and that's all we need anyway.
We had to pay for internet service which sucked. For an "upscale" hotel which people pay good $ for, we hoped that would be included.
We had been looking forward to using the pool after a long day in humid, busy Hong Kong, and it was okay.. but, we thought there would be music and maybe a bar where we can buy beer. Nope. There was a hot tub as well where you can relax - that was nice.
The fitness centre is large and fully equipped, but I didn't use it.
The location of the hotel is right in the heart of Mong Kok. Several metro stations are nearby and it's pretty easy to get around. If I were to go back to Hong Kong, I would prefer being closer to the harbour in Kowloon or on Hong Kong Island itself since many of the attractions (Causeway Bay, Happy Valley, Victoria Peak, getting to Lantau Island) would be more accessible. Though, as I said, the metro is very easy to use and very efficient. So, if you like to be in the centre of all the "local" action, this is a good place to be. The Ladies Market is a 10 minute walk away, and there are several other local market areas right around the hotel.
