Decisive points when picking this hotel were its location and large room as stated on their website. Location is truly great! It is close to Times Square and Causeway Bay Station, different restaurants in the walking distance and so on.
However, the size of the room disappointed us. We picked Studio with the size as described on J Plus website of 380 sq. ft. (approx. 35 m2). But, when we moved in, we realized that it did not reflect the reality. It barely fit approx. 25 m2. Which is for Hong Kong room sizes is not a bad one, yet we rather felt deceived, as the information on the website was misleading.
The room itself was clean, though it felt a bit worn out.
Few more things that, under different circumstances would have been easily overlooked, added up to our negative impression: 1) the shower door didn't close tight, leaking water out heavily; 2) bad sound insulation: there were people singing next door and it was heard as if in the other room of the same apartment, 3) Since there was a kitchenette in each room, sometimes hallway was filled with cooking smells, which were not always the pleasant ones.
Among good things: 1)breakfasts were offered every morning though with very poor choice: fruit, yoghurt, pastries, jam and butter, boiled eggs, a bit of cheese, juice, coffee/tea, 2) Laundry onsite, 3) As mentioned above, location.
Overall feeling: it was ok, but not satisfying, did not feel comfy and cozy, where you can come back from a long day and relax, felt cramped.
