“Good overall”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I chose this hotel for the supposed close proximity to the Convention Centre. It wasn't particularly near but rather smack in between the Causeway Bay MTR (9 mins walk) and the Convention Centre (12 mins walk). With that said, there are a lot of shopping and eateries along the way and the adjoining roads so the convenience and accessibility is relatively good. Wifi was reasonably good and I could only hear sounds outside the door and none from rooms either side of mine. Good choice for budget travelers.

This hotel has only one selling point, and it's in its name: the internet connection in the room and the promise of technological amenities. There are no other amenities. I was therefore shocked that the connection is very poor (worse than 80% of Hong Kong connections according to speedtest.net). I asked the front desk receptionist if she could do anything about the bad internet and she flat-out said no. I asked for help with connecting my laptop to the television and the receptionist said the televisions did not have HDMI ports--which they obviously do, like all televisions made in the last 5 years. I got the thing connected no thanks to them. For internet and technological amenities, you are much better off going to just about any hotel in Hong Kong. I even went to a hostel with better internet than this at a much lower price.

The room is clean and has a nice interior and a modern design. For Canadian standards and first-time international travelers the room is small. For Hong Kong standards, this room is decent. The price is affordable at around $85 CAN per night. There are certainly nicer places to stay with more room, however if your goal is to see a lot of Hong Kong the location is excellent. The hotel is a short 5-10 minute walk from either the Causeway Bay or Wan Chai MTR stations. Personally I preferred the walk to Causeway bay station as this seemed shorter.

I stayed in the Wifi Hotel for 10 days in June 2013 during my vacation in Hong Kong. The standard room is very suitable for a single traveler. For a couple it is cozy, but manageable. The main points of concern if considering this hotel as a couple is that the bathroom has all glass walls. The shower in my room had a band of stick on stuff which is the cheap equivalent of frosted glass. This provides some privacy but the toilet is visible from the desk.

ROOM DETAILS
- Strong WIFI with excellent speed. No problems connecting.
- Staff provides an HK to North American adapter if you request it
- Shower has rain shower head with a detachable head
- Shampoo and Soap provided in the shower
- comb, tooth brush, and other things... didn't use these
- Toilet was clean!
- Bed is made, towels are changed, floor is cleaned everyday
- Tile floor in the entrance of the room and in the bathroom
- wood floor where the desk and bed. The wood floor is quite scratched up
- ipod docking station provided (also clock radio)
- AC works great
- No gym, restaurant, pool, or other such amenities

That's about all you need to know. Not a whole lot of suitcase room if there are two people staying in the standard room. More than enough for a single traveler.

SERVICE DETAILS
- Staff speaks English, Cantonese, and Mandarin (Pu Tong Hua)
- Later-ish checkout (12:00 PM)
- Room requires $500.00 HK deposit upon arrival, this can be redeemed at checkout
- Staff will check your room to see if you forgot anything at check out
- Staff will hold luggage between check-out and your flight if you have a later flight

NOISE DETAILS
The sound-proofing between hotel rooms is pretty good. I never heard anything from adjacent rooms during my stay except for the water running when other hotel guests were taking showers. The front door is unfortunately thin and not well sound proofed. You can hear everything that is going on in the hallway. Fortunately the hotel is small and very... vertical. There are only 3 rooms to a floor so there is not a lot of traffic in the hallway.

LOCATION DETAILS
Awesome location. Quick walk to Causeway Bay MTR station. MTR can easily take you to Mong Kok in 20 minutes or less. Sham Shui Po, Wan Chai, Seung Wan, Tsim Sha Tsui, are all locations that are extremely easy to access. Kowloon station and Tsing Yi take a little more time to get to.

Many restaurants and Cafe's in the wan chai area and also immediately underneath the hotel within 2 or 3 blocks. There is also a grocery store called fusion nearby. If you need a quick lunch or dim sum these are easy on the wallet. It is easy to eat around this area for around $40 HK.

Wifi Boutique Hotel is a good hotel if you 1) are on a budget, 2) want a good location, 3) and a nice rest at the end of the day.

for about SGD$100/night (superior room), you get all basic amenities like toothbrush, shampoo, shower gel etc, a decent TV + DVD player and even a ipod/iphone docking station. There are also slippers if you don't like your bare feet stepping all over the sufficiently cleaned floor.

The bed is quite firm and can be a negative point for some people but it was great for me. Take note if you are soft mattress person.

The hotel is located near enough to Causeway Bay MTR station (5 to 10 mins walk). Lots of convenient stores, restaurants and cha chan ting all around it.

The front desk, which is located on the 2nd floor is staffed with helpful people who can speak Cantonese, Mandarin and enough English to tell you how to get to wherever you want. You can even borrow umbrellas at the front desk if you happen to visit during the rainy season, which we did.

We would stay in Wifi Hotel again if we ever go back to Hong Kong, which we most definitely would.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the higher floors if noise is a concern. Lower floors suffer from traffic noise.

i visited hongkong between june 2-8. originally, i stayed in soho, central but moved my parents to wifi hotel from june 5-8 as they wanted to be close to causeway bay. i booked the hotel on the same day of check-in from agoda at approx US$70/night. given the steep pricing of hotels in HK, i thought this was decent, but we were not expecting much.

the entrance to the hotel is tiny, could be easily missed but they do have a decent sized signage. the reception is on the second floor. we were given room 701 and noticed there's 3 rooms per level. the reception isn't really a proper reception if you consider that all the luggages crowding the foyer and there's no seat for waiting guests to sit (but there's 2 chairs on the ground floor). the lobby, reception is basic, but clean. check-in was ok, the service was decent - the staff answered our questions, informed us of a security deposit but nothing more. as its name suggests, there's free wifi in the hotel which is convenient (average speed but don't expect the whole youtube watching thing).

the room was pleasantly much larger than we had anticipated. i have heard horror stories of matchbox-sized hotel rooms, bed against door against wall situation. but no, the room we got was decent sized, and ample room for 2 to move. there's a little kitchenette counter with 2 complimentary bottled water in the fridge. in the bathroom, it's a lil tight. they provided basic toiletries like soap, shampoo, toothbrush, comb, razor, towels. the rainshower was a good temperature and pressure and aside from a small issue working the knobs, it was fine. there is no wardrobe but a small built-in hanging stand to hang your clothes in the hotel room and only large enough to rest one luggage.

in our room, we also had a dvd player and small ipod dock in addition to a flat screen tv. i thought these touches were great for a basic, "sleep only" hotel (which was my parents intention). however, do not expect much from the tv. i think at best, there's only 10 channels and the only one i understood was discovery channel.

bed wise, i think this is where the hotel falls short. for the most part, i believe people visiting causeway bay are in more for the shopping. so the hotel serves mostly a "shower and sleep" only use. therefore, while the additional ipod/dvd player touches were helpful, the shower and beds are of more importance. the bed was very firm (some may like it but i didn't) and they only provided one flat pillow. the airconditioning also tends to be quite loud at night for light sleepers like my mother.there's also daily housekeeping service and they will top up your toiletries, water, make the beds and provide fresh towels.

location wise, it is just off a fairly big street and i was a little concerned about loud noises disturbing my parents at night, as we were only on the 7th floor. it is undeniable we can hear street sounds, but it wasn't too bad. the hotel is a 10min straight walk to the left of causeway bay station (mtr exit C) and about a 15-20min straight walk down from the watering holes of wan chai. note that the watering holes of wan chai is in sort of a 'red light district' area and i was slightly shocked when i went there alone. so, the hotel isn't exactly stumbling distance after drinks but it's close enough for you to get there on foot and quick enough to return on taxi. there's plenty of food options all around to compensate for the lack of inhouse restro.

for US$70/night, i think the hotel is value for money. it's "no frills", clean and fairly accessible, good for the budget traveller looking to shop and drink in the causeway bay and wan chai area. i don't think you can find something cheaper at this standard. that said, for about US$30 more per night, you have plenty more options in causeway bay itself.

my ratings are based on the value of what i paid for and not in comparison to the standards of other hotels in HK.

A relatively new place with competitive rates clean if compact rooms, give its central position had a good nights sleep.
Walk straight out of the door and your spoilt for choice with a wide variety of restaurants, shops MRT and Tram within walking distance.

Room Tip: Guess the more you pay the bigger the room.
