Small bedrooms like most of mid range hotels in Hong Kong, breakfast in bedroom at your chosen time consists of croissants and cakes or toast, butter and marmalade and a pot of tea. Furnished modern contemporary style, very fresh smelling reception smells like flowers, lots of restaurants nearby including McDonald's if you fancy something plain. Spotless clean, non smoking hotel.... More

Front desk staff were cold and clinical. Asked if they sell stamps and instead of asking the question, the male staff member did not even look up from what he was doing and only asked for room number. very off-putting. And it's not like the hotel is giving a discount for the purchase even. Pls remember that you are not... More

As I visit Hong Kong on a frequent basis, I'm looking to reduce my hotel bills by using mid-range hotels. Sohotel is a regular booking. It has a convenient location in Sheung Wan, a short walk from the MTR. In the evenings I often walk to the bars and restaurants around the mid-levels escalator, or to the Central ferry terminal...

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

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
