Stayed here for three nights as a finale to a 7 week tour of Australia. The hotel is modern and well appointed and the check in service was quick and efficient. WiFi is charged for and we were told it was cheaper to pay to upgrade our room with complimentary wifi than pay for wifi! In this day and age of internet communication I found this strange! The room was on the upper floors with a view over the opposite block of flats. The room was very clean and well appointed though the noise all night from other guests shouting down the corridor to each other was disconcerting. Shouting back to shut up seemed to work wonders! The surrounding area seems to be mainly car/tyre repair shops and is really unatractive and a long way from the Harbour! No convenient public transport though there is a complimentary shuttle bus but you need to be early and have wide shoulders to push your way on. The buffet breakfast was very good but we didn't try the dinner as it looked very expensive. A 5 min walk to local resturants produced wonderful inexpensive HK food and don't worry about not reading or speaking chinese. The menu's have photo's and English descriptions and the local people are brilliant and willing to help. We wouldnt stay here again mainly becuse of the position but have to say value for money it was good. One final comment, if you book a tour through the hotel desk as we did, and its cancelled, as ours was. Then the crdit chrage is instant electronic, the refund is snail pace via paper. It took 2 months to get our refund!
