Room is okie based on Hong Kong standard. Facility is also ok. What I am unhappy about is the air con system. Do not know how long the hotel has not purified the air. It smells moudly in my floor. It is also a bit far from the MTR station. Clearly, there are hotels with better location with similar prices.... More

Hotel is in decent location, walking distance to Wan Chai. Rooms are clean and smaller than average, but I thing it is a standard across Hongkong. Stayed in February - room heating was not sufficient enough, had to request a portable heater.

Checked in and was upgraded to an 18th floor corner room. The room had a great view of Hong Kong's bustling Wan Chai district and the towering sky scrapers. The room amenities are of a standard you'd expect from a good international hotel. The 'handy' smartphone service is really great, once I'd figured out how to switch to English. It... More

Amenities and service excellent and the best breakfasts that I've had in my life. So much variety and so tasty. Would definitely recommend this and would stay here again if I go back to Hong Kong. Walking distance to many places and nightlife/restuarants. Great spot!!!

Booked the hotel thru Booking.com just a few days before my travel. Got a great deal. Breakfast included with a smart phone [4G data] in the room for local sightseeing. Travelled by taxi from the airport to the hotel. Can also be reached by MTR as the Wanchai station [Blue line] is about 5 min walking distance from the hotel.... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
