I have stayed at Hotel Konigshof more than 15 times in the past 6 or 7 years. It has always been a gay-owned and managed guest house and widely advertised as such in publications. My stays have always been perfect. The staff friendly and helpful--in fact I knew them all by name. The location is perfect, just minutes by foot from the main train station. On my most recent stay--without any advance notice from the former or new owners I was very dismayed to walk in and find all has changed. It is now owned by some hotel consortium. In short there is no gay presence at all, the staff is indifferent, full payment was demanded immediately and only after did I learn I was not given my usual and reserved room but a smaller one. In addition when I saw the internet rates posted were significantly lower and requested an adjustment I was given off-putting answers and before departure was told I'd have to write to a central person...who sent a brief reply weeks later refusing any adjustment. Other annoying changes: the breakfast spread is terrible compared to the elegantance of before and the desk actually wanted me to leave my key everytime I came and went! "You might lose it!". I will never go back. And gay travelers should be advised that this is no longer the HK we've always loved staying at.
