“Charming hotel and perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I loved the hotel. Perfect location, in the center of a charming quarter, where you can stroll around in the small streets, find plenty of restaurants near Soho and 5 minutes taxi ride to the ferry piers. I even walked from the hotel to the Peak Tram station. Rooms are small but very charming, nicely decorated with oriental accents. The hotel staff was very helpful, brought my suitcases up, accompanied me to take a taxi and let me use the gym to change at the night of departure. Only drawback is that free Wifi only works in the hotel lobby. I would stay in this hotel again on my next trip to Hong Kong.

The hotel had some plus points, in particular the location as it was centrally located and just a short walk from the ferry terminals so in terms of that it was perfect. The room was clean if a little small, but there was a bad smell like stale smoke in the room on arrival. The housekeeping lady was very friendly and did a great job daily of cleaning the room. I did find however some of the reception staff to be quite rude and short when asked a question. It was also something of a chore at check out with the staff not really having a clue what they were doing. The major down point of the hotel was the dining room. This was virtually empty when we got there but service took sometime and the facility was not welcoming or warm in any way from décor to service. This was not the end of the world as there are many good places to dine within a short walk of the hotel. To be honest unlikely to use the hotel again as there are other nicer hotels in the area for the same price. Its not the worst hotel I have stayed at but also no where near the best.

I stayed here for one night, the rooms are quite small but they are clean, modern and comfortable. The free wifi only applies to the lobby. The staff were extremely helpful, let me store my bags for the day when I checked out then I got them again, used the gym facilities to change and they happily stored them again for me until I left later in the evening. Great location, I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and it was a perfect choice. The hotel crew is lovely and the location is perfect. You're in the center of an animated quarter but the street itself is quiet. We could easily discover Hong Kong island. The real advantage is the near location of the ferry piers where you can take different boats that drive you to kowloon (10minutes), lantau (20 minutes and definately worth it) and even macau.

I found this hotel through Expedia because it was in the general area I wanted to stay in and had a reasonable price. It's just a short walk from the Sheung Wan subway station (exit E). The desk staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but clean and attractively decorated, with all the usual amenities and some nice views out the window. On the negative side: the shower head was too low; I am 5'10" (about 1.8 meters) and I could just barely fit underneath it. Likewise, my feet were hanging off the edge of the bed, though I did have a good night's sleep. Also, the hotel has a very unforgiving change/cancellation policy that requires 72 hours' advance notice or you'll be charged for at least one night. So when my plans changed, I ended up stuck with my original reservation. Finally, Internet access in the rooms isn't free (but there is free Wi-Fi in the reception area).

One thing you'll note about Hong Kong Island is that every possible inch of space is used. That's why the LKF Hotel is tall but small, with only 7 rooms per floor. It's also why rooms in general are quite small, yet there was enough space for a desk, a bag and a decent-sized cupboard.

My room had a shower (also saves space!) but another person in my group had a bath, so the rooms do vary a bit. I had a Mountain View, and it was quite fascinating to sit and absorb the sight of high-rises in the area. There's an open-walled lounge on the 4th floor for relaxing and I had access to free wifi.

The service is very good -- there was a small plate of fruit in my room upon arrival and the staff would even press the button for you in the elevator!

I had the buffet breakfast, which has the standard fare of eggs, bacon, sausages, sweet breads, fruit, yoghurt, and cereals.

The hotel is an acceptable walk from Central MTR. You'll eventually figure out the overhead walkways so you hardly have to cross any roads. Hint: when leaving the hotel, right on Wellington Street and keep going until you hit the overhead mid-levels escalators.

Beware of the fact that there are two LKF Hotels, so the taxi driver might try to take you to the wrong one. This one is a few metres uphill from the corner of Wellington & Aberdeen Streets. Take a printout of the map from the hotel's website to show the taxi driver. You can also walk from Sheung Wan MTR, but you practically need a GPS to navigate the tiny streets.

The hotel is well located. It is very close to central. My room is small but clean and quiet. Service is good. Highly recommend the restaurant call "名人坊" on the 2nd floor. It will be better if there has free wifi in rooms.
