We stayed here for a week in the beginning of February. The hotel is in a convenient location in Kowloon with two subway stations - Olympic and Mongkok - nearby. Both of them are walkable within 10 minutes and there are lots of grocery stores and shops nearby as well. The hotel is also within walking distance to the Lady's Market.
The rooms are probably much smaller than what most tourists are used to - however, they are clean and there is an ensuite bathroom, TV, and safe. (We stayed in a room with two small beds).
Internet can be purchased in-room based on one hour/three hour/24 hour rates, or can be accessed for free in the Maroon Cafe on the second floor. Phone calls (local and long distance) are charged.
There is also an airport shuttle that is available for hotel guests; however, the shuttle also serves a number of other hotels and so does not take the most direct route to the airport. For this reason, we opted to cab instead.
The staff speak a bit of English, but don't expect them to be able to answer all your questions about tourist attractions, etc.
