The hotel is very nice, because the price is not expensive and the room is clean and not small.

However the location is not very convenient, so I recommend only for travelers which have been to HK a lot of times so far to this hotel.

They have a shuttle bus service for a whole day, however, if you miss the buses, you should take a taxi.
The cost is about 30 up to 50 HKD from Thim Sha Tsui.
There is a few local bus stops in front of the hotel, however, it is very difficult to take for tourists.

There is a nice restaurant in the hotel, but the closed time is very early. I missed it every day.

There is a 7-11, a few restaurants, and a massage shop near there.

We have been booked in this hotel by our Travelling Agent. Myself and my wife stayed for two days in this hotel. It is located in an interior place.The rooms were small.For internet and wifi access this hotel charges 160 hongkong dollars. We have seen huge number of chinese tourists coming and going and there is not enough space in reception lobby. The tourist guides ask the customers staying in the hotel to come to the lobby and wait at a particular time for pick up in their vehicles. But the space in the lobby is not enough for the guests. There is a small coffee shop in the lobby and there are some seats available there.But the coffee shop girl allow you to sit there only when you buy some thing there. Infact we have asked to get up and stand in the lobby. Customer service and prompt reply to the guests is almost absent.

Room Tip: Rooms in the upper floors are better

went in the last week of may for a family holiday. stayed for five nights. was given a free room upgrade (same category of room although on a higher floor). Lobby was small with seating available only in the coffee shop. check in was quick but the reception people were asking for 2500 HK$ security which is negotiable if u dont want to use the fax and the room bar. rooms were clean and neat although a bit small (as in rest of hong kong). It looks like a popular destination for small tourist groups as there was always rush in the lobby. Variety was there in the breakfast buffet although the quality was average. could have been better. shuttle service was there on a regular basis to the subway station but the drivers are very rude.
room service took around 45 min-1 hr. surprisingly no crockery and cutlery was available (plates, glasses , spoons even if u ask for it). it will be send only if you order something from the kitchen. would i stay there again-probably not

Room Tip: club rooms are better and the ones on the higher floor

Stayed for 3 nights while in Hong Kong and rating was just OK. Far from the beaten track but hotel offers a regular shuttle service to the subway station. Shuttle service was always on time and reliable. Hotel was just OK with small rooms. Morning buffet included with the room was good with a lot of choices. If you're looking only for a place to crash while in Hong Kong and plan on roaming the city, this might be OK. Nothing to se though within walking distance of hotel.

Serviced apartment option

NOTE Minimum stay condition - 1 month

Surrounding environment car repair shops galore.

Many tour groups crowd the small lobby. Difficult to walk a path to the lifts.

Lobby has absolutely n o seating unless a purchase is a made at the coffee shop.
Four outdoor benches are available in the shuttle bus/car park bay therefore do not expect to sit in air-conditioned comfort despite this place supposedly being a hotel.

No grounds available unless you count the above mentioned covered car park. During one evening we attempted to escape our suite and sit at the Pool Side tables on the second floor but were told in a very hostile tone there was a minimum charge. Noticing a pattern....... to plant your rear in the public areas you have to continuously pay!!! IMHO ridiculous.

We enquired at the front desk and were advised yes indeed the Pool Side is a user pay area (despite only 4 tables being utilised at time of visit). Staff suggested alternative sit out area - the ' free' swimming pool. To sit in the pool arena guests must be dressed in swim gear only! So be forewarned, your options apart from your suite are non-existent during such a long duration stay. Staff indifferent to comfort of guests. Attitude of a head mistress enforcing rules only.

Toilet paper, coffee/tea sachets not automatically renewed supply. Face to face requests with some cleaning staff fail. Eventually have to telephone Housekeeping.

Morning newspaper provided is a roadside freebie vs paid publication unless protest is made.

Shuttle bus infrequent. Not located near MTR station.

Prepaid discounted breakfast vouchers not worth their face value. Poor produce, limited choice and poor menu variation. Not even an automated coffee and tea maker available. Urn coffee in this day and age?
Witnessed guests using hands to grab food and dry condiments yet staff did not intervene to cease such unhygienic practices.

Pros - few nice cleaning and lobby staff
- Simmons bed extremely comfortable

The room of this hotel was quite spacious for Hong Kong standard. Its cleanliness is also exceptional. However, the only drawback from this hotel is the extra charge for the breakfast and internet. Make no mistake, this area is surrounded by many good eateries nearby as everywhere in Hong Kong where you won't starve due its status as world's highest number of restaurants per capita.
