“1st Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

The hotel is clean, good location, accessible to many shopping centers and most of all they have friendly staff...it was our (my husband and I) first time to travel abroad and it was a very good and memorable experience for us.

Sleep Quality: Good. No serious disturbance.
Cleanliness: Very good. No issue. Beds, toilets and table were decent.
Location : Good.
Rooms : OK for 2 (single beds). TV was ok. Aircon was functioning well, though too cold at times even after adjusting it to "low". Toilets looked great. Kettle available in room.

Stayed for 3 nights as this was a tour group arrangement. Rooms were shoe box size, fridge was not cold, power point was down and toilet was barely enough for 2 persons to stand in.

Hotel staff werr friendly but that could not supersede the hotel stay experience.

Given this experience I will never ever stay herr again.

Dear charismatic_charis

Thank you for your constructive feedback. Unfortunately, there's nothing much we can do to address the issue of the room size but we do have within our hotel different room categories to cater to our guests' needs. As part of our commitment for tour groups however, the room types are already pre-determined.

We regret to note that despite the warm and friendly service provided by our team members, we are not able to 'wow' you sufficient for a return stay. Nevertheless, should you be in Hong Kong in the near future again, we do hope you will have a change of mind and allow us the opportunity to prove our hospitality to you.

Its my 1st time to visit hongkong and we stayed in this hotel. Not so big hotel, Very small room, very small comfort room. Aircon was really cold. No cable, so the tv was useless, i dnt understand chinese. Coffee provided. They have 2 elevators, no problem with the lift. Yes it was clean, smells good inside. If u have kids, its ok to stay here, but can only accommodate max 2. Breakfast buffet was excellent, complimentary internet provided there. If asked, will still go back. Its very near train station, and shopping areas. They have shuttle bus for transfers. Services was good.

Hotel is not located at tourism area, however it is in walking distance to subway station. It has shuttle bus to one major shopping mall and Kowloon station which connect to airport express train . The room is very small for western standard but it is clean and the price is reasonable.

Dear smallfish_hk

Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. Whilst we are not really located with a 'tourism area', there are plenty of local experience within the vicinity of the hotel; and the free shuttle service is a plus point to designated areas. We are happy to learn too that you found the cleanliness of the hotel up to your expectation and trust that your trip to Hong Kong was a memorable one.

We were supposed to stay at a cheaper hotel but our travel agent suggested we stay here because it is nearer to various travel spots. He was right. Despite of the small room size, the service was great. We will definitely book here again when we return to Hong Kong.

My husband and I (senior citizens) spent 5 days here and found it excellent for our needs. A must for us is an in-room fridge and tea/coffee facilities. The room was, as most HK rooms are, compact but well planned, clean and highly functional. Efficient AC, useful window ledge for storage, bed comfortable, slept better than at home in Thailand - but this possibly due to exhaustion as we walked miles! Staff were most friendly, helpful and spoke good English - and they did smile for us. We didn't use the hotel restaurant so can't comment on that, but if you like Indian there's a fabulous tiny restaurant just opened about 250 metres along the road, same side as hotel. The hourly shuttle bus service is a godsend and if you plan your day you can make really good use of this, as it goes to Langham Place shopping complex and the other Silka hotel is very close to the night market. A tip for anyone over 65 - be sure to get an Octopus card for Elder (proof of age required) as the transport saving is phenomenal. All bus trips over 2HK$ are capped and other transport is discounted.
