“VERY small room”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

We were surprised how small the room was. We booked a double bed and got a room with two single beds pushed together with the mattress seams in the middle, not very comfortable but after referring this to a deputy manager we were moved to a bigger room with a good view of HK. The location is good, close to Wanchai metro station. The bar in this hotel was empty and totally devoid of any atmosphere when we went in for a drink so we left and went to a bar outside the hotel. The concierge was not very knowledgeable and sent us in the wrong direction a couple of times when we asked for the location of a specific place. The price for this hotel was far too much for what it offers.

If you are on a budget but want to stay on the island try this hotel.
It is close to MTR,Exhibition and convention center,and the nightspots of Wanchai.
Rooms are small(as are most in HK) but have everything you need.
Small fitness centre.Good concierge.

Room Tip: Get a room with harbour view

It's really not too far from wan chai mrt. Walkable within 10-15 mins walk. Lots of shops and restaurants. Buzzling district and safe at night. Enjoyed my stay there thoroughly. Clean toilets, not big but reasonable sz for hk std..i have seen smaller. Surprised the room is actually quite spacious. Bed is comfortable and the room is cleaned everyday. Good value!

If you get a harbourview it is great. If you don't, then it's dark and you stare at a wall and the building right next door. They charge for every small amenity like Internet, wifi in the lobby, umbrella rental, breakfast, etc

Stayed here as was very close to the function I was attending and was more suitable than going across to Kowloon given the traffic and the times

As noted by an earlier contributor this is a functional hotel, friendly staff, everything wroks, clean and I hd a great view of the harbour from my room

Clean room, albeit it small and the bath tub is barely big enough for a 5 year old. Being a big guy the bathroom is a tad tiny

But the hotel is good, competitive price (but everything is expensive for the tourist in HK) so never convinced about value in this city given other parts of Asia I visit

Stayed at Hotel Icon (Kowloon) last time and cannot compare the 2 hotels - Icon far superior

But I would recommend this for any traveller wanting to stay on HK close to the ferry terminals etc. Just of you want to pay a tad more go elsewhere

Room Tip: Try t book a harbour view - always worth it in the evening

We chose the hotel from two criteria location and price.
We did also take the advice to pay little extra for harbour view room and I am sure that is worth the extra cost. And yes the rooms are small but so are most hotels I have stayed in HK which are not expensive but big enough for us (2 persons) .
The cheapest rooms are so low in the building I do not like them. We did not eat the hotel we even had breakfast at a coffee shop close by.

i booked the room online after contacting the sales manager of the hotel.i was going from Dubai with husband and daughter. i was given a fair enough offer. but the room i got was facing 2 buidlings- not a good view. the people in the other building could look into our room. the glass was not tinted.

the room was too small for a family. and too expensive for the size. internet had to be paid- expensive. restaurant does not have veg dishes. so eating in the restaurant was almost impossible

but cleanliness was excellent.service was also very good

in general - it is not suitable for family.
