“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

It's a small hotel with a friendly staff. The breakfast is poor, offering only bread, juice, cereal and coffee. The rooms are smaller than the area they claim to be, so expect very small rooms. The staff needs to know the area better: we asked for recommendations on restaurants and they didn't know any.

Room Tip: Rooms are very small. Ask for rooms in higher levels to avoid noise and have a better view. Don'...

Many thanks for your recent stay at V Wanchai2.

We are delighted to learn that you generally enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding your specific comments on room size, please be advised that the gross area including common areas quoted on our website is for reference purposes, we have used an average efficiency ratio of around 70 - 80% to obtain the current gross area, which is a common market practice. Yet, we shall definitely look into team coaching on the issue and also the recommendation of nearby highlights as mentioned by you.

Besides, as you might also be aware that our brand “V” is one of the hotels in boutique style, all our properties are less than 100 rooms basically. Hotels like us even in other part of the world, some are also offered without a restaurant with seating capacity. Due to licensing issue, we cannot offer full meal service. Yet, we still would like to offer some nice touch. After understanding of our intension, the interior designer has specially designed The Terrace for our guests’ enjoyment. We then decided to offer complimentary continental breakfast and evening cocktail with snacks to all guests without any supplement charge, no matter single or double. We found that most of our guests appreciated for the nice touch. Currently, we have reviewed and conducted some enhancement on our breakfast varieties and set-up though still continental. The Terrace is specially designed for the said purpose, we definitely still have rooms for improvement on varieties and services. We would appreciate very much on your kind understanding.

Please be further advised that we have several hotels and serviced apartments in Hong Kong. Should you require any further accommodation arrangement in Hong Kong, we would definitely like to keep abreast of your needs for accommodation, be it short or long stays. Do contact us directly and let us know your requirement if any, we shall recommend to you with our best package and offer.

We look forward to welcoming you back many times in the future at our unique design properties of V family.

we booked a deluxe room at agoda.com sometime early this year and were very excited since we have not visited HK for a few years. the description in their site clearly stated 50 sq.m. for the deluxe room. we were shocked the room turned out to be so tiny, it couldn't be more than 25 sq. m. BEWARE OF THIS HOTEL!!!! i would not recommend this one DEFINITELY!!! while their website said location very convenient, near restaurants and subways. the truth is most HK hotels are near subways and bus stops and everywhere in HK you would find food shops.

As of march 2013, this is brand new hotel. So the rooms were fantastically clean and fresh. There are only 3-4 rooms on each floor, so they were quiet. Higher floors offer great views.
Happy Hour from 1700-2000hrs where they serve soda, red wine and light snacks.
The breakfast spread was thin - juices, toasts, muffins, croissants, and of course coffee and tea. It got boring after the 3rd day. My gripe was that the staff at breakfast was not efficient, where coffee machine was left unattended and guests were wondering what to do.

The location is great. It is very close to MTR, Wanchai market and HK Convention center.The hotel included a breakfast, free wi-fi inroom.The hotel room was very clean and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Everything in the room was perfect. The one thing need to improve is breakfast.

After getting the correctly booked room, the rest was a pleasant surprise. Room was large, clean and even had a washing machine( worked, but poorly)! There were no "mini-bar" rubbish in the fridge which thankfully was empty. Happy hour 6-8pm was ok with red wine, soft drinks and beer and a welcome relief after a hard day's slog in the MTR and shops. But it is not a pub or bar which some guests seem to forget. Breakfast is more than what I normally eat. The staff are efficient and helpful. What more does one need!

Room Tip: Pay a little more and get better rooms. Talk to Augustine directly or Email. He is very helpful.

I spent 3 nights in this nice design hotel. It is located 3min walk from Wan Chai MTR station, which is very good since you can catch and MTR train to go to every part of Hong Kong or catch a Starr ferry (couple of min walk from hotel) to go to the other side of Hong Kong in a more turistic way. Staff is really helpfull with very good knowledge of english and really knowing they way around the city. The room is very nice, clean with very good wifi, modern design and new, not to big but big enough for Hong Kong standards. The only thing I didn't like is the breakfast since you don't get a lot to choose just cofee, juice, water, fruit and a couple of bagels, so I would definetly recommend not to take breakfast with the room. Definetly a hotel I would return to.

It´s a newly built hotel and has more than you wish (especially the suites that have fridge, washing machine, large flat-screen TV, DVD, sound system, wine-cooler). The higher floors (round 20 and up to the top-floor 31) are especially recommended, beacuse of the splendid view. Staff is very helpful. A small continental style breakfast is also served, as is a glass of wine each evening. Thanks a lot!
We recommend an evening drink on the roof-top bar Wooloomooloo in the Hennesey building on the corner to Hennessey Road. For transportation, the fantastic double-decker tram stops just outside the hotel and takes you along the HK island in both directions for just 2,30 HKD.
Opposite the tram-stop you have a nice vegan restaurant as well as McDonalds - you choose!!
Follow Wanchai Road to East Queen Road where there are a few high buildings (Hopewell center) with many nice restaurants. We especiall loved the pasta and the service at "La Cuccina Italiana" on the 21st floor. So look up, when searching for somewhere to eat. On a small nearby street there is Pizza Express (many outlets in HK), which, despite the name, serves excellent pizzas and pastas.
Take a boat trip (about half an hour) to Cheung Chau island from pier No. 5 for a small beach, nice restaurants and some climbing for a Mediterrainian feeling.
Also, take bus No. 6 from East Queen Road (Zenith bus stop) to Stanley (about an hour) on the south side of the island. A fantastic ride up and down the hills with a great view. In Stanley there is a very touristy market (bargain down to less than one third of asking price) and some nice small beaches and restaurants.
