“Away from city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Stayed in this hotel for a night. Was difficult to get to as very far away from a mtr station. Hotel advises to take a taxi but managed to find a bus.

The hotel receptionist took a while to check me in then didn't really explain the HK$500 deposit was slightly rude. The room itself is really nice with the view of the beach and a bridge. Getting to Lido beach isn't really nice as there are no clear signs but it was sandy.

There was nothing nearby but the hotel does have a shop that sells basic goods. There is also a shuttle bus that cost HK$10, I would recommend getting an octopus card and getting a bus which is cheaper and would probably give you more options.

A nice out of the way hotel.

Arrived late after midnight. Reception staff was unfriendly, but considering it was late, maybe he also was tired.

Got into my room on the highest floor and immediately noticed an overwhelming smell of mold. The source of it was easy to identify as there was a 50 cm x 10 cm batch of mold over the A/C as well as some in the bathroom tiles. I was too tired to ask to change my room so decided to just bear it and sleep there that night as I was flying out in the morning anyway.

Breakfast was decent.

It was a bit difficult and slow to get a taxi to the hotel.

All in all, cannot recommend due to mold problems. The least they could have done is wipe it off, but seems like the staff doesn't really care...

Big hotel room, clean & spacious. The service is good and their fried rice is amazing. It is also near the airport. The hotel is a bit old but it is well-maintained.
There is regular shuttle bus going to the train station too heading to the city
Worth every penny paid

Positives:
- Rooms were decent
- Swimming pool and Jacuzzi was good.

Negatives:
- Though it is near to a "beach", the location is too far away from about everything of worth.
- They had empty toiletry boxes in the bathroom. Thats shameful.

this hotel is hidden away in the new territories away from main part of HK. This is not the best place to stay if you need to frequently travel back to the city. They have free shuttles to the Tsuen wan district and from there you can take the MTR to where you need to go. Taxi rides back to the main part of HK will cost you about 50+ HKD. I stayed here because i wanted to end my HK trip with some peace away from the bustling city. It was a great escape right along the beach with great views of the bay from my room on the top floor. Beds were very comfy. Very clean rooms and spacious.

Not a great location for sightseeing and a pain to get to from the airport. Taxi was $200 and took about half an hour. Scary ride with driver speeding and seatbelts that didn't work.
No free shuttle but they did give free wifi in the room, which was a bonus. Pool and changing area was great, staff were helpful and friendly. We discovered a free coffee bar on our floor with refreshments. This was unexpected and generous- biscuits/cakes/coffee machine. Room was very good, clean, well equipped. Recommend this place if you have no desire to sight see and just want to rest, otherwise pay extra for a better location.

This is probably my bad choice for hk trip. The hotel is located way far from tsuen wan area. From the website, there is shuttle bus provided to MTR. So we waiting outside lobby, when the bus arriving and we push our heavy luggage into the bus by ourself. None of hotel staff helping us. Then a very rude staff shout at us and request us to buy the ticket in Cantonese. I further question where should I go to buy the ticket? The staff didn't answer and keep shouting. Then I move all my luggages down and go to lobby and ask to buy ticket. When I ready with my ticket and the bus just leave us without waiting. This is really bad service. how can a hotel treat their guests in such way? They didn't help to carry luggage, speak in Cantonese, didn't ask the bus to wait us just for one minute , and the $10 per person charge for the bus trip to MTR.
Please do not book this hotel for the lousy teribble services.
