I stayed in a deluxe room for two nights toward to the end of May, when the weather was hot and wet. The hotel is best accessed through the Mong Kok East MTR station/adjoining shopping plaza, which offer good transport links and dining options. Be advised this station is not on a line that goes directly to Hong Kong island where the main sightseeing is - must change at two stations to get onto the Tsuen Wan (red) line. Mong Kok MTR station, which is on the Tsuen Wan line, is a 15 minute walk away.
The hotel lobby is large and active, with a strong smell of air freshener. The staff checked me in quickly and efficiently, though this was after 9pm. The room was spacious with a large work desk lining one side and a bed in the center. The other side of the room was curved. The bathroom was surprisingly large with a bathtub and separate shower. Little details impressed me, like USB ports built into the bedside furniture to let you charge devices without using a power socket. They also provided an ethernet cable, which is not that common but thoughtful. Internet was fast though xvideos.com was blocked. Plenty of wardrobe space for hanging clothes.
The breakfast buffet was standard with various Western and Chinese options. I ate a lot of smoked salmon and enjoyed the omelette station. Sliced fruit like watermelon and melon was available, but not whole pieces like apples or bananas to take away for healthy snacking later.
I checked out at 11am and there was a queue of 10 parties ahead of me.
