A good hotel located in the heart of the city with plenty of eateries around. Staff friendly. Rooms are very very small with barely any space but it's not bad for the price we got. Close to the MTR and Nathan road and the ladies market.

Great location. Stayed here for 4 nights. Very near Nathan road, Temple Street night market just behind for late dinners. Nearby with lots of local restaurants nearby as well as supermarket and 24hr store all within 2 mins walk. Definitely the place to be for location. Did not take the shuttle bus, but i guess being in a group of... More

Well, something must differentiate a hotel from a guest house or a night shelter or something similar. Especially if the hotel is considered to be 2 or 3 stars. On my way back on a business trip from San Francisco to South Asia, had a 3 night stopover in Hong Kong and checked in to the hotel on the first... More

The location is great....very near to the things I like in Hong Kong - Yau Ma Tai, Mong Kok. Great food options nearby. The room is not large, but it clean and presentable. Bathroom was not large, but not tiny. Staff was friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the housekeeping. Breakfast is very basic. Basic enough that I... More

Location: the best! It is right smack in the middle. Ladie's market is a walking distance. There is a night market just across and beside the streets of the hotel starting at around early evening to 12mn. They start packing up at 11 or 11:30pm. Langham Place is about 15mins walk. You can also walk the opposite side towards Mira... More

I stayed here for one night while transiting through Hong Kong. Rooms are quite small but clean and safe. Hotel is in a relatively good location central to Nathan Rd and not too far from other areas of interest. Breakfast was quite good and service OK. One good feature was the courtesy bus direct to Kowloon station.

Rather expensive for a budget hotel in my opinion but the hotel was surprisingly nice. Our room was on the 13th floor, one of the non-smoking floors. We had a view of another building which was not very nice. Getting to our hotel was not a problem. The hotel is situated between Yau Ma Tei and Jordan Metro Stations off... More

Hotel is 5 mins walk from Yau Ma Tei MTR station. Convenient for connection to anywhere in HK. Room are small as with most HK hotels but clean and comfortable. It has a safe big enough to lock my laptop. Best of all is the hotel shuttle to and from Kowloon Airport Express station.

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
