Stayed at the Empire hotel recently to attend an event, was not expecting much due to the mixed reviews. Unfortunately, the negative reviews were almost right on the money. However, there were some positive aspects also. So I am summarizing the pros and cons as follows: Pros: 1. Convenient location: walking distance to the convention center and MTR stations 2.... More

At first sight the hotel looked great (grand lobby). But when I entered my room I was immediately overwhelmed by the smell of mildew. The room was overall dirty: dust everywhere, the curtains had not been washed in ages, fungus everywhere in the bathroom, weird drain with running water next to the toilet, etc. To top it all of: I...

The hotel is perfectly located in Wan Chai area, very close to the Convention centre, local market, shopping street and MRT. My room was small but it was large enough for me. If you are in town for business and looking for a place on Wan Chai. I recommend this hotel.

I stayed here for 7 nights in July while attending a conference at the HKCC after booking online and paying in full before I arrived. Check-in was fine and I was shown to a 'Club Room' on the 18th or 19th floor. The room was small and air-con virtually non-existent in 33 degree heat and 90% humidity. While there had... More

Really, the only good thing was the location of this hotel. It is close to everything -- the shops, the Wan Chai station, the Ding Ding station, and the Convention Center. Other than that, it was a big disappointment. Arriving at the address, I nearly missed the entrance of the hotel since its sign is so small and so well... More

Located in Wanchai, this hotel is closed to everything. Easy for public transport (with its own stop for the airport shuttle), nice restaurants and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre just three minutes away. It is a good value for money. Just note that your are in the red-light district...

This has now become our standard residence for HK 7's. Perfect location, good price (a lot cheaper outside of the rugby, but for what you get at this time, very good compared to other hotels) and very efficient staff. Nice, clean rooms. (small) pool on the roof and easy to hail cabs from
