As we needed a place to sleep after being denied boarding we chose the cheap option and took a taxi from the airport to the strawberry guesthouse. Taxi was about 250 HKD. At first glance you can't tell from the face of the building where you need to go, but luckaly there were enough hotel-pushers to "show us the way". During this process we did not feel safe, but in hindsight all seemed trustworthy. The rooms were basic and "HongKong-small" but quite clean. We took the "family-room" which is also sold as double. The guesthouse is situated nicely near Kowloon park and the subwaystation where the train will take you to Hong Kong island for less than one USD. If you are used to Paris or London pricing this will be a real treat. We ate at McDonalds for 2 USD pp.
Sunny (the receptionist/owner/cleaner/manager/logistic superviser) was kind enough to give us his phonenumber and we could leave our lugguage at the front desk when visiting HK.
Maybe he could make a folder with breakfast opportunities in the neighbourhood, or have HK maps for sale. This could save time. We had breakfast at the shopping center next door (1st floor) Very nice as well. As there are many guesthouses that offer basically the same I can't say this is the best, but it was certainly a nice experience and good value for money to us.
Strawberry guesthouse is checked by fire inpection. Be sure to find the 2 staircases for evacuation ICE.
