“Perfect location, clean and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Great location-walkable from the shops of central, the ferries, the nightlife of the mid levels and yet you feel like you're in real hong kong-gd balance. Small room but gd compared to others we looked at. Tv, free wifi, great modern bathroom, excellent aircon, comfy bed, free water and a fridge. Staff were so friendly too and made it feel like home for 3 nights. Cafe next door gd for a westerner's breakfast but other authentic places all around the hotel. Would def return.

We really enjoyed our stay in the vibrant and exotic city of Hong Kong. This hotel is very good pick while staying in the city. The hotel is centrally located and very close to the ferries.
The staff is very helpful. The rooms are spotless clean and modern. After the long trip we really enjoyed the good and hot showers.The rooms are a bit small, but that is typicall for Hong Kong.
We also appreciated the free Wifi. Great value for money!

You'll see in many of the reviews that the room are tiny, and indeed they are. But get over it: You're in Asia. The bed was comfortable, the Internet ports worked, the bathroom was top-notch nice, and the AC helped to stave off the ubiquitous HK humidity. I would definitely go back. Place was clean, modern, quiet, safe. There was a safe in the room, always a nice feature. The part of town it's in is tranquil bordering on boring at night, but I noticed a wine bar next door.

First of all, this is not your typical hotel like those that you'll find in Kowloon. So, if you're used to the hustle and bustle of Kowloon till late night, you'll find that the area the hotel is located in gets really really quiet at night. Other than a few 24-hour convenient stores, there is really nothing opened here at night.

Other than that, it's a comfy hotel. Very small rooms (like most in HK) but sleep was comfortable and the staff were very helpful, friendly and attentive. Hotel is just a short 5-10min walk from Shueng Wan station and if you're interested in making a trip to Macau, the pier is just a short walk away. Soho and Lan Kwai Fong isn't too far either...just a 15-20 min walk.

It really depends what you're looking for in a hotel. If you're looking to experience the hustle and bustle of HK, I think nothing beats staying in Kowloon and this hotel is definitely not for you. But as a place for a restful sleep, this hotel more than fits the bill.

Stayed for a couple of nights as it was cheap. Room was about 6 by 8 feet so not much room for luggage and very little space to hang clothes up. Small shower room/toilet but worked well. Staff very good and helpful. I had bood breakfast inc but you have to pre order day before from a choice of sandwiches and tea/coffee or juice and a time for delivery! The sandwiches were OK but would have preferred to sit down to a normal breakfast.

Not too far from MRT Station and all the other delights Hong Kong has to offer. I would stay again but would try to get a bigger room.

I took this room together with a friend for the recent Rugby 7s in Hong Kong. We thought that we could save a little money by sharing a room, fully expecting that it would be cramped.
Upon entering the room it became immediately clear that 2 people who did not intend to have carnal relations could not share the twin room. My estimate was that it was about 9 x 8 ft, so be warned.

Other than the size the hotel was pretty decent. The wi fi worked well, the rooms were clean and the service was staff were friendly enough. The hotel also provided breakfast and free drinking water which was a nice touch.

Locationwise it was not great, there are amenities nearby and it is a 10 minute stroll to the underground but there's nothing near the hotel itself. The room itself is pretty basic with just a TV, hair dryer and safe. No water heater, dvd player, iphone docking etc.

Room Tip: try to get a lower floor, with only 1 lift it was painfully slow to get to the 18th floor.
