Stanford Hotel, 118 Soy St, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Relatively easy to find from Mongkok Metro station with an easy 10 min walk into the backstreets. Excellent downtown Mongkok location, very close to the Ladies Market and a large range of restaurants and shops. Impressive front entrance and lobby area, which was unfortunately let down by a very officious clerk who made it clear that 3rd party bookings would be treated as second class customers. Made the point that www.otel.com bookings we're not entitled to WiFi services and "if you had booked through the hotel, ....". Just what you need after a long day's travel. WiFi available at HK$20 (US$2.70) per hour, with 1 hour free use in the breakfast restaurant. I thought I was getting WiFi with my booking, but accept that it may not have been included. The rooms are typical of HongKong; overpriced postage-stamp sized rooms with only just enough room to walk around the beds. Rooms were very quiet with good block-out curtains, so a good night's sleep is possible, as long as you like very hard beds. Very, very hard beds. Air-conditioning worked well, English news TV channels, including one movie, no mini-bar, but in-room safe. The coupon breakfast was very good, with a small, but adequate range of western foods and a couple Asian items. Very clean, light and welcoming breakfast area.
Overall, the hotel is okay, and would only stay here again if it had an excellent deal, including WiFi, which is a show stopper for any bookings.
