“Just fine”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Stayed for 3 nights en route to home in Canada. We had just spent two months in China so my opinions may be coloured by accommodation we stayed in there. The day we left we asked if we could stay in the room a few hours longer (they didn't seem very full the whole time we were there) as our flight was in the evening, but they said no. That is their right, but it would have made a big difference to us, given the heat on the streets. I can't say if it was good value for money as we didn't shop around.

Positives:
Room and common areas very clean
Towels changed and garbage emptied daily
Soap, toilet paper provided
Shower water nice and hot
Air con worked well
Staff very pleasant
Hot water available for tea
Location on Kowloon great, near Temple St market and many restaurants
Very easy to get to from Shenzhen or airport

Negatives:
Double room very small, though it would seem that is common
No lounge area for guests. When the rooms are that small, a seating area would be really nice. One often needs to retreat from the midday heat outside.
Wet bathroom, not my favorite anywhere because of the wet floor, toilet etc., but the drainage was right

Room Tip: Our double was small, but the twins didn't look much better. Our room, I think it was 620, seem...

Stayed here for 4 days 3 nights with grandma, aunt , and brother. The room for 4 is just what we needed. Beds were big, space is small, toilet is small. Nonetheless, rooms were clean. The area is safe. The back entrance is best for older people. The owners, Ma'am Jenny, treated us very well. MTR is just a few meters away. Local eateries are evrywhere. Night market is just there. Groceries just a stone throw away. Fresh produce from the supermarkets within easy reach. A really excellent place to stay on a budget. I will stay here again.

We stayed at this guest house for 2 nights (13-14 April, 15-16 April). We booked 2 double bed room at HKD500.0 each room. Room comes with free wi-fi. Hair dryer, hot water are provided at the common area.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The location is super convenient, less than 2 mins walk to Jordan MTR exit C. There are many Hong Kong Cafe around the guest house. If you are bored at night, you can walk at the night market nearby- which is less than 5 mins walk. There are few bus that goes to / fro airport - just check with Jenny and his father - both are super friendly host.

Fyi, payment is in cash only upon check in.

If you don't want to spend much on your hotel accommodation, City Econo Guest House is recommended.

We stayed at this guesthouse for 10 day from 17 Mar to 27 Mar. We booked a triple room for 2 persons, the room is very clean and comfortable. The location is great very closed to Jordan MTR Exit C. Many hong kong style cafe around the corner. It is highly recommended to anybody who is looking for budget and good location to stay.

we stayed in City Econo Guest House in Jordan from march 10 - 13, 2013. Got a triple room for 650hkd. The place was easy to locate. From C2 exit of jordan mtr, just cross the street and you'll see the building of cumberland house (just beside watsons). They also have a signage but it says CITY GUEST HOUSE instead of city econo. Take the elevator to the 6th floor to see Jenny - the owner (that's where their office is located although 5th flr is also theirs). If you want a quiet yet convenient place to stay, this is a good spot. The room was clean and big enough for us 3, with a double bed and single bed, spacious & clean CR and strong water pressure. Towels and toiletries were provided. Theres' an old crt tv though reception is not good, its ok though since we didn't go to hk to watch tv anyway. Theres free wifi and its fast. They have hairdryer, thermos, and cups along the hallway. They also sell discounted tickets for disney, the peak and other spots at their office. Jenny can speak english well so if you have questions, you can speak with her.

if you'll take the bus to the airport, just walk along jordan road (2 blocks from pilkem st), in front of DBS bldg, take the A22 bus to the airport. the ride takes around 30mins.

**they also have a front entrace along nathan road but the stairs is longer as the elevator starts on the 1st flr while the back entrance elevator (pilkem st) starts at the ground flr.

Room Tip: room 527 is a triple room with good amenities. bring an adapter for your gadgets though as the hoste...

The Guesthouse was a comfortable place to stay. Small but very clean including the bathroom towels, shampoo and shower gel. In the hallway they provide free hot water and there is also a hair dryer. Wifi is available. I'm thinking of going to Cityecono everytime I stop over in Hongkong since it is located at strategic place as well. Excellent and Nice price. Good Owner and friendly.
