Just came back from a short 4 days 3 night stay w/2 17yr old boys and all I can say is that we enjoyed our stay at this hotel! Staff were friendly and helpful, good size room and very clean. Their breakfast buffet NOT included in room price was descent and very fulfilling for the boys. Transportation is literally right... More

Due to the price fluctuations of HK hotels, we had to find a place to stay for one night, and booked here through Agoda. I didn't know what to expect, but I knew from looking at the map that it wasn't anywhere with accesible shops and restaurants right next door. With my dear, taking a few pieces of luggage, we...

This hotel was far better than we expected. We had an amazing view from our deluxe room to Botanical garden and to Central area. Room was very nice and bed was good for spine! Bathtub was a bit too short but shower was fabulous. Location is not optional but not too far. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel... More

Sometimes you get to an hotel and everything seems to go wrong. We first had to wait two hours before our room was ready (we arrived at 4pm), once in the room it was alright (fairly clean, but very outdated). Next day we went for breakfast and the staff asked us for our COUPONS?!? Never got them when we checked... More

Nothing special to say, but this hotel is great for it's location, very near the botanic garden, 10min walking from the bar and restaurant area in HK, wich is very convenient. Something that I dont really understand is that you have to pay 100UKD for a 24hours internet connexion ! Hey guys: 21st century.

The rooms were spacious in the Garden View Suite we chose, but not so well planned. The Kitchenette had almost nothing in the way of utensils, not even a dish cloth. The bathroom had ample room, but with little space to put toiletries and makeup. And there was an unpleasant odour in it, that seemed to come from the plumbing.... More

The rooms are not really clean... Hair everywhere, the walls and windows are dirty. Even the bed sheets have some dirty spots. The bit plus point is the view of the room and the size which is quite reasonable for Hong Kong. If you want you can easily walk to the center, but be aware you will be sweating, the... More

Stayed at the YWCA and was very surprised how good it was. Extremely clean, spacious, great views of Hong Kong harbour and without any question, I would recommend anyone to stay there, especially as the price is extremely competitive,

I lived in Hong Kong for many years so I knew the location for this hotel was excellent - close to Central and overlooking the HK Zoo Bird Sanctuary. I would hear the birds in the morning and it was lovely. The accommodation is really adequate & comfortable. I slept very well. I have serious back problems and was thrilled... More
