Very comfortable room, awesome view of Kowloon
Smelled like smoke or incense or something on my floor, can hear everything in the hallway but it's quiet as far as outside noise goes
I liked the cleanliness, and it's well maintained. But the best part was the staff! They were very good...professional, and the front desk and concierge spoke english very well. The location is either love or hate. I loved it because it wasn't in the touristy areas, but yet 10 mins walk from Mong Kok. I stayed in 3 hotels in Hong Kong and so far this is my favorite! The value for the money is OUTSTANDING for the city!!! The decor was modern and very attractive. And I really did love the neighborhood it was in...just real and authentic Hong Kong people living their lives and you get to be part of all that action. At the end of the day, just outside the Mong Kok station, there is a small park with little asian older ladies doing Tai Chi until 11PM, and I would just sit there and watch as I rested my sore feet. And it was just very peaceful and relaxing.
The rooms are small, but it's to be expected. Beds are harder than western traveler's maybe used to. And it's about a 10 min walk to the MTR train stations. So after a long day of walking, it's not very convenient, but they do have a hotel shuttle running to a few of the nearby stations and other locations. You just have to catch it at the right time, or you'll have to wait another hour.
*Affordable hotel *lovely local neighborhood *concierge were very polite *modern decor
*staff have poor English skills * room service diddnt knock before walking in to our room on two occasions *breakfast buffet was fairly disappointing, restaurant staff more interested in talking with each other than serving customer's. *reception staff messed up our room payment *ruined our trip - left Hong Kong on an earlier flight.
Staff was very helpful and considerate. Reservation department was very responsive to inquiries and requests. Breakfast was good and included in price.
Room was a bit small.
