“Not a great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

If you like to be in the center of the action, this probably isn't the hotel for you. It's located on a quiet residential street, and nearly everything is a taxi ride away. That said, the hotel is clean, the staff friendly, and the prices reasonable. Studio, one- and two-bedroom units are more like apartments than hotel rooms and seem to attract a lot of business people on short-term assignments. A free shuttle to downtown central runs early in the morning and again from about 5 to 7 p.m.

Room Tip: The higher priced executive suites offer nice views of downtown Hong Kong, especially from the highe...

I stayed here for 6 nights and was upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite. I forgot to ask for a high floor with a view (as per previous reviews here on Tripadvisor) and think this is probably very good advice.

2 MacDonnell Road is functional. If you can get a good price, need to be near this area and don't need to stay too long then it's an OK service apartment.

The staff are pretty helpful, the internet connectivity is good and (for Hong Kong) the room size was good.

The service apartment is located in a residential area and therefore there is not much near by for food, bars, shops, etc. There is a good super market opposite in the YWCA building.

The gym is basic. If you plan to lift weights then know a routine with relatively light dumbbells. There are some great urban run routes near by for runners, especially Bowen road.

I stayed over a month in this hotel and it was good experience. Hotel reception is at 8th floor and rooms are located from 8th floor. First to seventh floor has some medical training institute.
What's good - Neat and clean rooms, good towels, nice wardrobes, Iron set available, calls are free within HK, Laundry service is quick. There are utensils for cooking. There is a super market just few meters away so everything is available for any needs. I had a nice view as i took the botanical side view of the hotel.
What's bad - Yes, there is a shuttle available but limited times, No buffet breakfast, rooms are small. I was on a business trip so survived in a small space but you need to understand that it's HK. Limited TV channels

Room Tip: Take a view which faces the botanical gardens.

Everything is quite good. I like the location and how close it is to Central. However, my advice for anyone staying short to long term is to get your laundry done elsewhere. The laundry service here is terrible! I think terrible is an understatement. My clothes sometimes came back not totally dry and sometimes they smells! Think it smells worse after laundry. There was once one of my blouses was not ironed! I will just have to look for alternatives now. Good to stay but don't ever use their laundry service.

I stayed at Two Macdonnell Road for a coule of months. The apartment I had (two rooms) was cozy and nice. Bathroom was surprisingly spacious. Housekeeping did a very good job, apartment was always very clean and nice. The building and the apartments are not modern, but homely, comfortable and in very good condition.
View (towards the Zoological Garden) absolutely gorgeous...
Kitchenette very small, not suitable for regular cooking. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Facing Zoological Garden! Higher floors are quieter.

I stayed for 2 weeks at 2 Macdonnell road. It is a bit far from Central and if you are planning to walk to IFC on daily basis, you better be super fit as it will be a challenging hike on the way back to the hotel. however the is a shuttle that goes to Central and IFC every morning at certain times and the same shuttle can bring you back in the evening. Taxis are also very affordable here. It will cost you HKD 20 to HKD 30 to get to IFC mall/ Hong Kong station/ Central Station.

The hotel is next to Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens, not very touristy area and it is much quieter than Central and SOHO.

There is a Park'nPay next door and you can pick up a few things for breakfast. Do not expect a fully functional kitchen at the hotel but you will be able to warm up your dinner in the microwave, boil an egg and make a cup of tea. The restaurant in the hotel is not great and I haven't managed to find anything good walking distance from the hotel so if you pan to eat in your room, get something on the way from Central.
Otherwise the rooms are big enough, the view is good, it's clean and private, overall excellent value for longer stay in Hong Kong.

Also, I found that I managed to get much better rate from www.agoda.com rather than the hotel directly.

Room Tip: room to face Central

We stayed 3 nites at this hotel 1) since the value was good and 2) it was close to the US Embassy and other key gvmt offices. This was perhaps a 3.5 star hotel, definitely nice and not crazy expensive as the other prime hotels down the hill. The view was lovely. The room rather nice and clean. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful - warning - they have a 'coffee shop' but harbor no illusions about breakfast since they have none... it's open for just Sunday brunch it seems, and then a light dash of lunch and dinner client.... This really is where people stay if they're in Hong Kong for a week or a month.... and if I was here for that long I'd consider as the cab ride down the hill is quick and cheap and there's tons of taxis.... the walk to Wellington area is also pleasant thru the zoological park and gardens next to the hotel.

Room Tip: You can eat breakfast adjacent/nearby at the YWCA building but it's more akin to prison food the...
