By western standards, this is a 2-3 star hotel. Once you lower your expectations to that level, it's not too bad. The drawbacks = rooms are quite shabby - very dusty with stains on the walls - and the hall carpets were filthy. The advantages = staff were friendly (although gave us a lot of wrong information about the local... More

I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights last June 2014 for business purposes, my room is much bigger compare of what I expected and it has a balcony. They provide a shuttle service from hotel to airport, vice versa but you need to book first for the availability of shuttle. This hotel has a great location with reasonable price... More

This hotel is a good value hotel, not too far from the wild time that is Wan Chai and CWB. The service is excellent and attentive, however the room is ageing but very clean. The sheets were sometimes a little ripped, however this seems to be an issue affecting a lot of non European hotels at the moment.

The hotel is significantly cheaper than any decent accommodation (not hostel) around the Wanchai area. It isn't fancy, but good enough for a short stay. Rooms are average size for HK, bathroom is clean and you get free drinks (water, coffee, tea) and snacks inside the room's minibar. I stayed at a double room with two twin beds. They were... More

Have to say that the choice of this hotel was because it is very well located for us, as we use to have several meetings per year, just near by. Before we used Charterhouse as our base in HKG, but a trial with Vela was very convincing, rooms are slightly bigger than the Charterhouse, and we felt OK, we use... More

This hotel clearly needs to be reviewed by the travel business. Our room was far too small for two adults, the air conditioning was faulty and was not dealt with during our stay. The hotel had planned maintenance on one lift while we were there and all guests over all 12 floors had to endure using one lift for five... More

Our one night at the Vela was one night too many. Our room had no linens, no wifi and although technically clean, was not comfortable at all. The beds were small, low to the ground, and rock hard. Also, keep in mind that there is some sort of brothel/gentlemen's club on the 2nd and 3rd floors. While waiting in the... More

We were a large of group 14 and chose Vela Hotel because it was strategically located near Causeway Bay and Wanchai areas in HK. Sadly, the hotel failed to meet my personal expectation and when we got to discuss our experience among friends who were in the same trip; most, if not all, had a bad experience from sliding doors...

I don't think this qualifies as a 4-star hotel. I have compared it to another 4-star hotel nearby, and the VELA definitely falls short in service and quality. Our room was small and clean. Everything worked properly. The room was modestly appointed. The refrigerator had a few free simple snacks (oreo wafers, iced tea, peanuts, bottled water) that were restocked... More
