As the title says the rooms are tiny even by Hong Kong standards. Location is good. Staff were friendly and efficient with above average English understanding. Shower was excellent, hot and powerful, a big change from most we found on the mainland. Adequate for business or short stays.

Good location, you can walk to most of the places you'd want to in Central HK. It's clean it's comfortable and it's pretty easy to find after a few drinks. I can't say there was anything too special about it but I'm pretty sure they don't intend it either. Cheap, clean, good location, friendly english speaking staff (and not bazaarly... More

Meets all the expectations. Friendly and helpful staff. Good English. Location very convenient. Closely located to the MTR station and MTR bus pick up point. Lots of food shops right off the door of the hotel.

Stayed in the superior double room for 4 nights. Room was compact, with a space for table and luggage space (unopened luggages tho). Pretty decent price for the space, was able to squeeze a space between the toilet door and the bed for a morning workout. Reception staff is really friendly, especially Pauline and Joey whom have helped us on... More

...but definitely not more... Location is great, really close to the ferry terminal to Macau and also only 3-5 min by foot from the MTR station and tram as well, also quite close to SoHo and LKF. Hotel facilities are a bit poor (small TV on the room), rooms are really SMALL but clean, bed was the smallest I ever... More

It is a basic business hotel. I stayed here for a week. The bed is a small double bed, the room is tiny and the shower is great if you are 1.60 cm tall. If you need to be in the area, better experience in the Butterfly on Wellington and Bishop Lei hotel. 10 minute walk from Queens road though... More

The hotel is a cute, boutique hotel ands smells lovely upon entering. The staff are all very helpful and kind but English is not great. I upgraded to a Superior room and glad I did. I could actually move around -- a little. Very small rooms, as noted by other reviewers. The flat screen TV was dwarfed by its stand... More

This is Hong Kong so if you are hoping for a large room for around $100 ... keep hoping. The space was adequate, certainly not the greatest hotel I have stayed at but the staff were friendly and helpful, it had a great location and quiet room. Nice touch was the included breakfast which runs from 8-10 (but everyday they... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had booked the superior room with 2 single beds. The hotel was very conveniently located in Sheung Wan and we chose it because it was a 5 minutes (or less) walk to the HK- Macau Ferry terminal. Also the Sheung Wan MTR station was also about a 10 minutes walk away. It is... More
