“Find another hotel - there are plenty of other choices!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Pluses include fabulous location and cleanliness. Minuses are much more numerous and would include lack of privacy in the rooms - the whole bathroom is divided with glass so if you intend to share the room with someone beware! Plus very noisy both because of thin walls as well as wild guests (a request to the front desk to ask the guests to keep the noise down at 1am was ignored). Service was indifferent at best; particularly memorable is a request to provide an iron resulting in a non-functioning appliance being produced much later and not replaced with a functioning one. Pre-arrival communication by email was either late in reply, or completely false (I received an email stating my credit card had been declined but when i wrote back to clarify I was advised that I didn't need to keep emailing them and my card had already been approved?) Desk staff were borderline rude. Most annoyingly, hot water fluctuated wildly between lukewarm and scalding, making showering an athletic experience. For 700 HKD a night, there are much better value options available.

I stayed at the mini hotel during a 2 night stay in Hong Kong. Im a young female travelling alone so i was concerned with making sure that i was in a secure location. Hong Kong in general was very safe for lone travellers and this area especially seemed busy and safe. It is up a hill so would recommend you get a taxi from train station which doesnt cost alot. The staff are ok, i did have an issue with my safe in the room, it wouldnt open and locked all my money inside along with my phone charger which i needed to ensure my safety whilst out and about. The maintanence man who was trying to fix it was very nice and apologetic but the receptionist gave me the impression they were trying to blame me for the fault which annoyed me slightly as i use these types of safes all the time. They did lend me money and a phone charger which is the least they could do but wasnt bowled over by their customer service skills, in face the maintanence man could have taught them a thing or two.

The rooms were very small, they do not hide this in anyway so please dont book it if you cant deal with the room dimmensions. It is ideal for a person on their own or a couple with limited baggage. I easily managed in my room, in fact i loved the cosy feel of it and it had everything that i needed and for the price i couldnt have been happier. It is very clean and was checked daily, really couldnt fault the room at all.

The location is great, really local for all the main attractions, it is in a party zone and on saturday nights it does get loud so pack some ear plugs,

All in all it was a great stay and i would definitely return if i was on my own.

This hotel is really mini, the rooms are tiny but comfortable. The bathroom has a glass door and glass walls. You feel like being in a small ship cabin. There are no mirrors in the bathroom which makes it difficult to shave. The shower is in the same tiny area as the basin. However, it has a very good wi-fi signal, it is very well located in Central HK, close to restaurants, pubs, wine places, etc. If you are travelling alone, is great, and prices are very competitive. With someone else, the bathroom might be an issue.

Room Tip: Try to get a higher room to get a better view.

The hotel lobby was very cozy and comfy,the room is very very clean but a little too small. Well,its alright for that. The location of the hotel was superb,close to lan kwai fong as well as easy access to convinient store like 7-11,famous cha chan teng which is 24hours, famous roasted duck,authentic and oldschool milk tea stall and tong shui stall. Would want to specially highlight their receptionist excellent high class service,very helpful. Not bossy at all. We ask a receptionist where is honolulu cafe, she dint know the exact location, she told us to go up to the room and put down our luggage and she will get us the address llater, i was expecting her to just give me the address, i never expected her to print the location on a map,hoglighted it and pass it to me. Thats a big star for them.

The room is compact but has all the basic items you would need. The bathroom had towels more than what I expected for the bargain price we paid for. Area of the hotel is very ideal. Walking distance from MTR, Central District and Lower Peak Tram. Area is alive at night for those who are going to HK for night life. Make sure you do not have big bags as the room will be a tight fit. The room has a sufficient number of hooks to hang some clothes.

Room Tip: Higher Floor are more quite at the front of the hotel is a busy toad in the morning.

I booked Mini Hotel by Expedia, very good value Hotel except no restaurent facility & room is very small and attached bathroom's partition build by tempered glass which may embraced because everything see from room. We have no-problem because of couple.

We are very much happy that Tripadvisor give us chance to present our review.
