I spent 6 days in the hotel on the 21st floor. I had sweeping city views across to walls of the room which was really spectacular. The free minibar is a nice touch as they provide fruit juice, water and beer. I found the room very comfortable with plenty of room for suitcases and sufficient power points to charge my phone and computer. The Wifi in the room was quite sufficient for browsing web sites, using Line, Whatsapp and sending emails.
The breakfast is basic but more than sufficient (toast/breads, croissants, bagels, cereals, juices, cream cheese, skim and full cream milk, jams and a variety of muffins). During the day the hotel provides fruit, sweets and biscuits, real coffee, softdrinks and beer.
The hotel is really a great oasis in the middle of a somewhat busy area of Hong Kong. The Shamshuipo area is a hive of activity until all hours of the night. There are markets nearby with clothing, used appliances, cell phone cases and cables, and many great restaurants (unfortunately most menus are in Chinese - but be adventurous and point to what the other people are eating!). The cheapest way to the hotel is to take the A21 bus (HK$33) and get off in Mongkok (near the Mongkok MTR station). To take the A21 bus to the airport catch the MTR at Shamshuipo to Mongkok (exit E1) and walk to 639 Nathan Road in front of Grand Plaza. Alternately you can catch the bus along Argyle Street between Shamchun St and Canton Sts.
