This hotel has a fabulous pool, which is the reason that we chose it. It really is better than the photographs show. We stayed at the hotel for four nights with our kids in one room and us in the other. While small, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Minimal comforts were provided, we had to ask for glasses and ironing boards etc were only available on request. The staff were all extremely helpful, in particular the pool staff and the pool bar staff were fantastic. We ate in the pool bar twice and found the food good but very expensive. Other nights we went down into the local area where we found cheap eateries. The hotel is some distance from Kowloon and Hong Kong action, however Taxis are so cheap that we did not find it a problem. Rather, it was a plus looking at a non- touristy area.

Booked this hotel after reading a variety of reviews. Third trip to HK for holiday.
Biggest thing is location.
Whilst there is a new MTR opening closer (next year or two )it is still a hassel to get to Hong Kong Island or even Nathain St. Taxi costs $40 to 50 hk dollars.If the hotel put on another shuttle bus at peak hours it would help.
Rooms very good, service very good, internet $120 per device per 24hrs..very poor!!
Meals OK but could not get Chinese meal, cook gone home.There are a few restaurants around the area but Japanese???
Pool OK but no drink service at pool area had to go to garden bar
Whilst the breakfast buffet was not bad it was not good enough to get us back each morning
as it was not included in the cost of accommodation paying about $150hk was far too much

Personally would not stay there again, just as good value closer to Kowloon or on HK island itself

Room Tip: as with most HK rooms get as high as you can

If you are looking for both comfort and luxury at an inexpensive trip at Hong Kong, perhaps 8 degrees (to quote a cab driver 'too many Harbour Plaza in Hong Kong') is the place to be. Located in Kowloon, the distance of the Hotel from the must-watch places in Hong Kong is not much. The nice spread of continental breakfast along charges one for an energetic day, a must for a tourist.

We stayed this hotel for 3 nights. Hotel room is clean and provide free bottles of Easton's water that we no need to boil the water in very hot weather.

Although, the location is not situated at the main district, there are many transportation to go Mongkok and Tsim Sha Tsui area. A nice experience and lovely staff. There are some of local restaurant nearby which have various of selection.

Overall pleasant and comfortable stay. Hotel price is reasonable and will recommend to other.

Room Tip: Comfortable

Tidy, clean room. Large pool area. About 10-15 walk to main shopping area and markets.
Next time, I will probably try to get a big closer to the action, but good hotel, nice staff.
They have shuttle buses but they were quite busy, so sometimes had to wait for the next bus as it was full. We booked a double/queen bed and it was too single beds pushed together which is fine, but I think they should have put the sheets etc over them both to make it one bed instead of 2. Happy enough for the short stay over, but would consider another place next time.
