When I visit HK, I prefer to stay in Central. But the hotels are often very expensive when there is an event or exhibition going on. This week was not an exception, with the art fair took place. But fortunately enough I found this hotel(Actually it is a serviced residence, even better!!!!). It's next to the botanical garden in Central, not far away from SOHO and Lan Kwai Fong(But it's complicated to walk to there). 5min walk to the peak tram station, 10 min to the Connaught Rd Central for metro and tram, another extra 5 min to IFC/HK station. (But since it's on the hill, it's easy to go down but difficult to go up, especially in a hot humid day in HK.. walking is not very recommended..). By taxi it takes less than 5 min to IFC(25HKD), and also there is a bus going to central in front of the building.
The room was spacious(by HK standard of course) and clean, and the view from the room was fantastic. Cheap room service option. Kitchen was nice and had amenities I needed for the simple cooking.
Bishop Lei International or Garden YMCA are similar to this one. While Bishop Lei is better located(very close to the mid-level escaltor, easily walkable to Central or IFC) and has a swimming pool, Two Macdonnel has better rooms(btw there are no twin bed rooms here).
Overall, it was a pleasant 2 days in Two Macdonnel, good value!

We had a two bedroom apartment for 5 nights. The accommodation was clean and well serviced every day. Slight irritations: there was no toaster or grill/oven in the kitchen. We also struggled to open a window: when it's cold inside with air con, you want to open a window to feel the outside air temperature to know what to wear! Also, the beds were a little hard and small. Given I'd booked the 'family suite' one tiny double and a single was all we got. I have three children and did this trip as a 'reckie' and would struggle to see this even fitting a family of 4. Other than that, we were very happy with the views, location, helpfulness and discreetness of staff. For those wanting a serviced apartment I'd wholeheartedly recommend this one. It is expensive for what you get, but in comparison to everything else in hong kong it is fair.

Room Tip: Don't go buying lots of bread hoping to have toast in the morning - there is no toaster! Likewis...

We stayed at 2 Macdonnell rd for a month. What we love the most about this place is the location. Its so easy to get everywhere, The bus stop is only two steps away and theres always a bus coming in every 10 minutes. never had to wait long for a cab, the staff can always stop a cab for you with pleasure. Plus shuttle bus is available every morning and afternoon to take us to central which is only 10 - 15 mins away by walking.
There is a supermarket At Coda plaza across the road from the hotel where you can get almost everything you need. There is no wifi on the room but you can get a small travel router, so we always has a reliable wifi. The staff always smile, says hello, and get us anything we want so quickly. So far, this is the best accommodation we had in Hongkong, and we def will be back!! We miss living in 2 macdonnell rd, and hope to come back again soon!! Thanks!

Just come back from 10 days in HK. We chose 2 Macdonnell Road as it had a 2 bedroom unit marketed as a "Family Suite"... when we arrived the extra bed (we have 2 children) was wedged in between the dining table and the sofa in the living/dining room... I knew it would be tight space wise (this is HK afterall) but was disappointed as I was led to believe 2 single beds could fit in the second room... they sorted it out by taking the desk out of the second room and squeezing it in but it meant there was no space even to open the cupboard...

The location is great. Buses from central stop right outside, as do most taxis. That for me was the best point about it.

They could do better but having things such as washing up liquid and a sponge, perhaps sugar sachets, salt and pepper... this is self catering... even the most basic B&B these days offers such like. The prices are equivalent to many top hotels so I felt short changed.

There is a good supermarket 2 minutes walk down the hill too for all essentials.

Beds were rock hard, and very small... if you are over 5 ft 8 you feet will hang off the end.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better as quite a lot of traffic noise

I stayed here for a month in December in a Deluxe Suite (2 rooms), while my colleague stayed in a Standard Room. Both had lovely views. The staff is friendly and the place is right near a supermarket, and the park. Even nicer is that right above it is a wonderfully magical walk along Bowen Road--it hugs the mountains but is flat and affords you incredible views through the canyons of buildings, yet you are in the forest. A nice respite from the tough walks during the day! The beds are hard, though. Towels are changed every day, except the weekend, and bed linens are changed every other day. The monthly rate makes this a better choice than the Y across the street. The gym is small but the view is great. Internet is free in your room, but if you need to use a computer, the business center has one for $HK25/30 min.

Room Tip: Sometimes the birds in the park are a bit noisy so higher floors would be better. If you want space...

I actually lived in this place for 7 years before their big renovation. 75% of their guests were long term residents. Friendly front desk staff, same housekeeping maids assigned to a few floors, I know they keep a memo of each long staying guests special needs = personal touches!
After the renovation, I returned to be a short term guest. Hotplate in kitchenette changed to induction hob - boils water in minutes! Free lan internet, direct phone line number. Clean and OK spacious - for it's price in HK it's already spacious. All kitchen utensils provided. Nice view in most rooms. Even the ones facing buildings are of a good distance. They didn't change the bathroom, so still the old ones, but well kept. Down side - 2 bedrooms suites has only 1 bathroom. Lower floor harbor facing rooms might get the mid-night cries from the monkeys in the zoo.

Room Tip: Junior Suite is good for long term stay solo travelers, 01 is a corner room with excellent natural l...
