“Never again”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Pros:

Convenient location
Cheap price
Free wi-fi
Air-con

Cons:
Very, very hard, uncomfortable bed.
No curtains on the windows and bright street lights. Eye mask was a necessity.
Very thin walls, I could hear every time my neighbour received a text message. I could hear everything happening on the street. I could hear everyone who walked up and down the stairs. I could hear my drunk neighbours screaming in the corridor at 3am. Earplugs were a necessity.
On my first night I received 2 automated wake up calls as well as another wake up call from the front desk staff between 2 am - 6 am. None of which I had booked.
The front desk staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful.
There was alot of mildew around the airconditioner which constantly dripped onto my pillows/head

I would never stay here again nor would I ever recommend this hotel to anyone.

Frightening how bad 'hotels' can be (hotels in apostrophies as this hole in the wall does not qualify for the title hotel):

No reception in the building, but two buildings down

totally ignorant staff

no elevator

room was about 12sqm/120sf - a 3' wide bed that was not even regular length (as it would not fit),

NO chair,

NO closet/wardrobe,

NO space to put suitcase, which then ended up on the bed (during the day) and close up standing upright on the desk at night

Safe the size of a wallet (does not fit labtop or Ipad),

incredibly noisy as windows are so old and bent that they don't close

30year old AC unit (Window Banger directly above bed and not able to regulate

Toilet and Shower are pretty much the same space, shower is about a foot wide and thus one is standing above the toilet to take a shower

Sink was installed between two columns and was literally less than a foot wide (my toothbrush was almost able to touch both sides when held horizontally - impossible to reach the faucet with both hands at the same time thus impossible to wash. Naturally, zero space to put toileteries

Shower and sink was black from mildew at every corner.


In short, the place was so disgusting that I checked out after one night and accepted the charge for my new hotel (and most likely loosing the prepaid Orbitz room rate (which was non-refundable).


DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS JUNK!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay there - safe your money

Stayed 5 nights at Mingle by the Park in March 2012, and it is good for sleeping after a long day of work. For me, it's perfect since I'm back at 9pm and out by 7am. Plus points for a clean room, good quality sheets with 4 pillows, clean toilet with fresh towels daily, strong blast of cold air from the A/C, and global news channel are made available. I was pretty lucky to get the 5th floor as it's quieter and there is a lift that connects from Mingle by the Star, so i can use the lift and walk down one floor, pretty easy.

Downside, the registration staff are not very friendly; but the porter/ welcome staff are very helpful with luggage and getting cabs. Can get a bit noisy with neighbors as the rooms are very compact.

I would definitely stay at the Mingle again.

Room Tip: Pick the higher floor and use the lift from the Mingle by the star.

The hotel was refurbished in the past few months, and everything still appeared fresh and clean inside. There were two entrances to the hotel, one which looked like a residental house entrance, and a few door further along the street, there was another entrance that was far more trendy with lots of blue lighting and black reflective surfaces.

The hotel was arranged within two adjoined buildings, but only one side had a lift, but even in the side without a lift (where I was staying), the staff were helpful with moving luggage in.

All of the communal areas were clean and attractively presented, and there was also a business centre with computers and other business related bits and bobs.

The room itself was clean and a resonable size. I had a double room, but the bed seemed a wee bit wider than a standard double. The bed was quite hard, but comfortable, and the (white) bed linens were flawlessly clean and totally unstained. There was also a DVD player and a LAN cable for the wired internet access.

The ensuite bathroom was an acceptable size, and complimentary shaving and dental kits were provided along with the usual shampoos etc. One thing to mention however, is that the sink is very narrow and between two walls, so if you are blessed with the gift of shoulders and/ or arms, doing anything over the sink will be difficult (ie. shaving, washing your hands etc).

Given the resonable price, I would have given the hotel a 5 star rating, however, it was very noisey at night. I was in a street facing room on the third floor, but the exterior wall onto the balcony is made of thin wood, and a lot of noise gets in. There is also a bus stop right outside the hotel, so that exacerbates the noise problem (the buses run until about midnight). Luckily, I appear to either enjoy listening to buses at night, or am a heavy sleeper, so the noise was not a big issue for me, but if it might be, a set of ear plugs should be packed.

Room Tip: The street facing rooms are opposite a busy/ noisey bus stop. Not a problem during the day, but may...

My fault for booking a cheap room for Honk Kong 7's weekend but I booked the single room with "balcony" for HKD1000/night....so not really that cheap! The bed was less than 6ft long, I'm 6'2". There was a pillar about 1ft square in the middle of the room so difficult to get into/out of/walk around the room. Couldnt sit on the toilet, no room for knee's. Walls were dirty, was a walk up 6 flights of stairs off the street, no leift on that part of the hotel. Anyone could walk up off the street, no security whatsoever. Stair well was recently plastered but no-one had bothered to paint it. The view of the squalid apartment block opposite the Wan Chai road was......different. The couple banging away in the room next door at 2am was a nice touch, as was charging HKD 22 for a can of coke.

Room Tip: Dont stay here

I was initially only going to stay for the one night, so booked the double value room online. I got quite a good deal, paying 425HK$ for the night. The room has a double bed that is wedged in between two walls, so not ideal if you are tall or claustrophobic. The bathroom was a good size and the complementary toiletries are always nice.
I ended up having to stay another night but by that time i could only get the superior room. This worked out 725HK$, which is still cheaper than the 1500HK$ they will want if you book it through the hotel. The room was bigger with two single beds, although the bathroom was slighty smaller. If you think you will need to stay longer than the hotel check out at 12.00, i would book another night as it is 100HK$ every hour as a late check out fee.
The good thing about the rooms is that each room has a large flatscreen TV, complete with english TV channels and a load of movies you can watch. The staff are generally friendly, the cleaning ones always greet you warmly.
Some of the bad points: there is no lift, so you have to haul your luggage up from the first floor or down from the sventh floor, its up to you. Also if you get a room on the front of the hotel, its quite noisy with all the traffic paired with the balcony doors. I think its better to subsitute the window in a room for some peaceful sleep.
A final point is the scuffed paint i had in my double value room. I don't know why every hotel room, apartment or office in china is painted white. The dirt and scuff marks show up very easily and are often not repainted for years. I really think as a hotel this should have been touched up.
Overall a good value hotel if you can get the chepaer deals online and pretty central to everything on Hong Kong island.

I stayed at this property for four days last week in a "Lite" room and thought it was excellent and perfect for my needs. I was in Hong Kong for work and needed to go to Convention Center which was only 10 minutes walking distance away. Needed a place to crash after a long day's work and it was perfect in location and price. The room, bathroom was very clean and the in-room entertainment of movies was very good! I will highly recommend this place to anyone who is travelling alone with not too much baggage (to walk up the stairs with) and would like to be centrally located in Hong Kong! Oh yes, if you are a light sleeper do avoid the rooms near Wan Chai road!

Room Tip: If not too fussy, the "Lite" room is fine!
