grubby and untrustworthy management. place is not very impressive on the eyes.Arrival hall on check in is virtually non existent. not even one star I would suggest. in an area where hotels are plentifully don't this own stands out at all.
We stayed for 7 nights during the summer holiday 2019. As we travelled with two children, we booked a family suite with two connected rooms and the rooms were very suitable. Great reception from welcoming, friendly staff. Clean room and clean bathroom with good power showers!! The hotel is situated near the MTR with easy access to shops, restaurants and cafes. very convenient location. We enjoyed our time there and we highly recommend this hotel.
This is a sparkling clean and comfortable hotel in Sai Ying Pun, my favourite neighbourhood in Hong Kong. Service is very good and check-in easy. The room was large with big windows, great linens and typical Asian firm beds. Decor is simple and everything is in new condition. Bathroom is modern and functionally efficient. Location is great with Sai Ying Pun MTR and DingDings around the corner. Many restaurants, cafes and shops in neighbourhood. The best thing about this hotel is the value and the price for Hong Kong with this standard of accommodation can’t be beat.
WE Hotel is a recently opened hotel in the western part of Hong Kong Island, just a short walk away from the Sai Ying Pun MTR station (exit A1). The rooms are quite spacious by Hong Kong standards and were regularly cleaned. Unfortunately the beds are rock hard, which negatively affected my sleep quality. Furthermore some of reception staff (particularly during the evening/night) couldn’t speak any English making communication slightly difficult. Nevertheless still a good value-for-money option for a few nights, particularly in light of Hong Kong’s sky-high hotel rates in combination with the oftentimes extremely tiny rooms.
Booked through hotels.com for three nights. As a solo traveler I booked a King room and the size was perfectly adequate. Check-In / Desk: About 90% of the time I went by the very small check-in desk, two staff members were there and at least one of the two spoke English. A couple of times I stopped by with a question and, as I do not speak Cantonese and the lone staff person did not speak English, there was a total communication breakdown. Even in those situations and others, staff was pleasant. Initial check-in went as expected and took only a few minutes. Checkout was also relatively easy. Common Spaces: The only ones are the lobby, elevators, and short hallways on each floor. All very clean and quiet. Room / Amenities: There are only 2 rooms per floor, but unfortunately they share a common wall; luckily, the family next door to me was fairly quiet. The room was uncarpeted and spotless. The windows took up most of one wall. Amenities: TV with remote, in-room safe, electric kettle, mini-fridge, easy-to-operate aircon, stand-up shower with shower gel and shampoo dispensers, shrink-wrapped slippers, toothbrush kit, hair dryer, hand soap. Shower water was nice and hot, with adjustable-height, removable nozzle. Would have been nice to have an iron. Luggage storage is available (free if picking up same-day; small fee for overnight / multiple nights). Bed: The King bed is two mattress connected with a topper; even with the topper the bed is quite firm. It was comfortable enough for my taste, however. Location: The location is really convenient -- just one half-block from the A1 entrance of the Sai Ying Pun MTR Station (just two stops on the Blue Line away from the Hong Kong/Central Station). There is a small grocery store 1/2-block away, across from the Ramada hotel, and a larger grocery store is about 3 blocks away, in the same direction as (and beyond) the MTR station. Also, as a relatively fast walker without luggage, I made it to the Macau Ferry Terminal in 10-15 minutes. It's a 15-minute walk to the Man Mo Temple, which is also the closest Big Bus Hong Kong stop; along the way to the temple, there are several Western cafés and restaurants. Getting There: From HKG, hop on the Airport Express train and get off at Central / Hong Kong. From there, there are three options: (1) switch over to the MTR Blue Line (additional fare required), go two stops to Sai Ying Pun, and walk about 200 ft from the A1 exit; (2) switch to the complimentary Airport Express Shuttle Bus Service (Route H2), get off at Stop 4 (the Ramada Hong Kong Harbour View) and walk 50 ft; (3) take the Vigor bus shuttle (with this option, say that you are going to the Ramada Hong Kong Harbour View, from which it's a 50 ft downhill walk; if you tell the desk at HKG that you're going to the WE Hotel, they'll simply say that they don't serve this hotel).…
