I stayed in the Madera hotel for five nights in February this year. The hotel is centrally based, ja few minutes walk from Jordan metro station, just off Nathan Road. It's very easy to find, as long as you make sure you leave the subway at the right exit. The hotel is down a minor street off Nathan Road, but the street has other cafes and bars on it so it doesn't feel unsafe. The hotel is a modern, impressive building with a small but welcoming lobby. There's not a great deal of seating in the lobby so it's not the best place to wait for transport if you have a lot of bags.
I had booked a standard room but on arrival I was offered an upgrade to one of the studio rooms on the 28th floor for a very reasonable price. I accepted the offer and didn't regret it. The room came with a complimentary mini-bar and vouchers for breakfast in the hotel coffee shop.
My room was large and spacious, with a very comfortable king-sized bed, a separate seating area and a small kitchen. The views, from the floor to ceiling windows that spanned the length of the room, and looking up Nathan Road (away from the harbour) were tremendous.
The bathroom was very nice, and the Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries were a bonus. The only niggles I had about the bathroom was that the shower was only a handset on the bath - it wasn't fixed to the wall, so you had to sit in the bath if you wanted to shower. There wasn't a great deal of storage, just two small units with plastic shelves on poles. There were two sinks, but I would have preferred a single sink and a better storage unit for toiletries.
There was plenty of good storage space in the room itself, two large televisions (one at the foot of the bed and one in the sitting area) with a reasonable selection of cable channels. (I did however find that because of the layout of the room, when trying to use the remote control for the television at the foot of the bed, the television in the sitting area would turn on - you have to get used to pointing the remote at funny angles!) The television in the sitting area also had a DVD player and had 3D functionality, if you happen to want to watch DVDs while in Hong Kong.
The mini-bar included a few soft drinks, a few beers/wine, and some snacks. Nothing amazing, but nice to have when the munchies struck in the middle of the night.
Breakfast was served each morning in the coffee shop, and included a hot drink (tea or coffee), a pastry (very nice muffins or croissants) and a bottle of fruit juice. Compared to other included breakfasts I've experienced at other hotels this was of a very high standard, and the coffee shop itself had a great ambience.
The hotel also offered a gym, which I didn't use, and a games room, which I tried to use only out of curiosity, but found to be locked. (I wasn't interested enough to go find a key from reception!)
The hotel has a panorama bar on the top floor which I can heartily recommend. The drinks were on the expensive side but the panorama view from the top of the hotel was one of the highlights of the trip for me, especially at dusk when the lights start to come on.
The hotel is right in the centre of Jordan so there is no shortage of convenience stores, coffee shops, eateries and shops. The Temple Street night market is a few streets away and offers all manner of tourist tat, as well as housing lots of good local eating spots.
I would stay at the Madera again without hesitation - it is fresh, clean and well located and compared with other hotels in Hong Kong is very reasonably priced.
