Arrived at JJ Hotel last Oct. 5. Took us a few people to ask before we finally located this hotel from the A11 Bus from the airport. I guessed it would have been easier if we arrived via MTR Airport Express from the airport. In the event that you get lost, ask somebody from other "boutique" hotels which are everywhere in this place, not from someone in the street. Even guys at nearby 711 won't be able to tell you where JJ Hotel is. It might help to ask where Emperor Group Center is, that is one big building along Hennesy Rd. (the main road) and directly behind Emperor Group Center's building is Lucky Center, where JJ Hotel is.
We booked a superior room, 2 beds for four nights. The room is very clean, the bathroom with glass enclosure is a nice touch to an otherwise plain room. The beds are quite hard, which is a personal preference. So far, everything that's in this room (Rm 903) works. Only complaint is the cable TV whose channels number like, 6 and out of the 6 channels, only one is an English channel. There's a DVD machine, but you have to pay HKD 50 to "borrow" a movie from the library at the reception. If you will be out the whole day, like us, and would only be needing a shower and nice bed to sleep on at night, then this is ok. There are no hotel amenities to speak of, this is a no-frills, standard hotel. You get what you pay for and frankly, not bad for a budget hotel in Hong Kong. The only downside here is that the nearest MTR station (Wan Chai) is a few blocks away. It's NOT near esp if you are carrying massive shopping bags ALL THE TIME! While getting a cab is an option, flag down rate is HKD 20 vis a vis the MTR, bus or tram that only average between 2-5 HKD, depending on your destination. But for the love of myself (feet and arms especially) do get a cab when you think your arms and legs would like to separate from you already. Better yet, google map your hotel first before making a reservation and get those that are a building or one or two buildings/steps away from an MTR station. I guess when they say 3-5 mins walk, it may still be ok. But if it says 10-15 mins walk, that means its far! So beware. Other than the location, the hotel room is ok and if only for that, I would be staying here again. To summarize, location is a no, room cleanliness and comfort is a yes.
Food? Never worry even if the hotel doesn't serve breakfast or any meals. You will never go hungry in Wan Chai. There are restaurants everywhere to suit your budget.
