As frequent travellers to Hong Kong we try to stay around Tsim Sha Sui and Nathan Rd as it is close to all our favourite places. This time our travel agent put us at the Rosedale Hotel Hong Kong. Make sure you read other reviews by trip advisors as our comments are very much the same as others.
The rooms are very small but well presented and very clean. The breakfast buffet is designed for the Asian tourist but still gives westerners a good full belly for the day. Try to get to the breakfast early as families come in around 9.00 am and the fun starts......plenty of kids, lots of pushing and sometimes you had to wait a little to get a table especially if you are with a group. You didn't have to wait long though.
The staff are very friendly and most helpful. They couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Daniel on the Concierge desk is a real charmer. Make sure you use the hotel shuttle to downtown as it saves you getting the MTR and taxis. It would be good to have the shuttle for return trips to the hotel but the taxis are very cheap. Ask for a room on the road side as they are a tad bigger and ask for a room on the upper floors. The Sky Lounge is great for a 'night cap' at the end of the day.......good staff and pleasant views.
Make sure you get a copy of the address of the Rosedale in Chinese and large font for the taxi driver. They all know where the Hotel is. Watch out for the 'bad taxi' drivers (as described by our taxi) as they do not have meters and try to rip you off.
We would highly recommend the Rosedale and their wonderful staff. Well done.
