We booked this hotel the day before arriving.. At such a cheap price inclusive of wifi and breakfast, with a fantastic location it was an obvious decision.
Harbour view room on level 29 provided a fantastic view of the harbour and looking across to Kowloon. Clean room and comfy bed, well appointed with electric blind, fridge, hair dryer, safe & storage(hanging, under bed, desk drawers & drawers under the window seat)
Transport: walk to tram 5mins then catch to Sheung Wan MTR station
Or we choose to walk the 15 mins directly to Sheung Wan MTR station. Always a great option for people watching and getting in amounts the locals.
Yes the rooms are small. Don't whinge about this you know when booking and it's CHEAP. The bathrooms have glass doors but ours was frosted so you could not see through it at all. Wifi quality and connection is fantastic and we never had an issue using it.
Breakfast was cooked to order, fresh fruit was delicious and well cooked eggs with good coffee.
There was some scaffolding around the front entrance that did not effect my stay at all. It only looked to go to level one, which is reception unless you were on level two I can't say you would even notice it.
We did also notice even with the 'do not disturb' sign on the door house keeping still wanted, and did come in and make up our room.
Overall I would be back and stay here again.
