I stayed in the hotel for two nights during my recent (24-27 September 2012) trip to HK and was not disappointed.
The hotel is conveniently located in TST East and has excellent transport links from the airport (Airport Express to Kowloon Station and complimentary shuttle bus from the station, no. K3) to the hotel.
Check-in was efficient and fast.
I stayed in the Club Harbour/City view room and it has all the usual amenities in a good hotel plus a coffee making machine, a blue ray disc player and 3-in-1 printer. Best of all, there is no charge for using the mini-bar.
A club room also allows one to use the Above and Beyond lounge located on the top floor.
I would recommend this hotel to those who are looking to try out a new hotel in HK. As this is a teaching hotel (where most of the staff are students in the hospitality course run by the adjoining polytechnic which also owns the hotel), a little patience is needed if things don't go your way but that did not happen while I was staying there.
Kudos to a well managed hotel.
