The Empress Hotel doesn't live up to its name. It's over priced and in a word 'appalling'.
We arrived a day late due to our HK flight from SF being diverted to Beijing and we're still waiting for our refund (2 weeks later) from the Empress Hotel.
The bedroom smelt damp and no wonder there was a large damp patch beside the bed. The very old carpet was musty and there were no disposable slippers to wear, just a pair of brown plastic slippers that looked like everyones foot disease nightmare. The bed was as hard as rock, painful. The lighting was grim, even with the lights on the room was dark. Drawing the curtains didn't help as it looked on to the other side of the hotel and an adjoining building. We itched all night but that could have been psychological. The buffet breakfast was cold and dismal. Go to the Y-Hotel, it's cheaper, modern, clean and a better location.
