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

Disappointed with this hotel, Front door faces the areas refutse collection/processing building - not a pleasant street odour. The lounge/viewing room on the top floor (30th) is only open to business use. Lack of info/papers in the unwelcoming lobby. Few staff seem to be interested in being pleasant. Small room with a shower/toilet combo room that soaks the whole floor

The hotel gave me an upgrade, and the room they gave me is true is bigger as usual (any other room hotel in Hong Kong), but the rooms are too old (over coat the bathroom). The are is perfect in Hong Kong island inside Wanchai where thei is all the environment.

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.
