My friend and I were supposed to stay in a totally different location, but due to our ignorance we got off at the wrong bus stop. So we roamed around Mirador Mansion, about to lose hope because almost all hostels are fully-booked for 3 straight nights, then we ended up here.
Mr. Bruno was very friendly and accommodating. We arrived way earlier than the check-in time so the room he gave us wasn't cleaned yet. He asked us to stay at the room beside it for the moment. Because we were restless ourselves and couldn't wait for the room to get ready, he gladly offered to watch out for our bags until the room is ready. When we got back in the evening, everything was settled properly. He lent us a universal charger because I forgot to bring one. He also offered discounted prices for major tourist spots in HK.
Overall, the double room was a bit small but we managed (maybe because we're not the type to complain about these things). Air-con worked fine, bathroom okay, Wi-fi available, the television has not much channels but we didn't go to HK to watch TV. The Mirador Mansion, on the other hand, was a different story. It's a bit dirty but tolerable still. Not a big issue.
The location was right at the center of everything. It's very near the MTR station, 7/11, and at the center of shopping scene. There's also a computer shop nearby in case one would need. I did because I had to check emails for work. My friend and I don't mind walking at all, so we just walked to the museums, Avenue of the Stars, even the ferry terminal.
I emailed Mr. Bruno few months after to thank him again (because I had serious HK travel nostalgia that time), and he gladly replied with a thank you as well.
