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

Stayed at the Vela hotel for 2nights. First time at the hotel I was a bit shocked how a 4 star hotel looks like, it might be just Hong Kong. Anyways after entering the hotel I saw the lobby, and that was another shocker, so small and only 1staff member. Checkin was pretty easy and fast, received my card and... More

Stayed here on a business trip because it was the week before Hong Kong Seven, so room rates on the HK Island side was outrageous. There is nothing to write about the facilities because there was none. I guess I was lucky since they automatically upgraded me onto the higher floor with a view to the Race course. That I... More

This hotel should one or two star hotel, dependign on your level of expectation.I did not like this hotel.
