Hong Kong is not exactly known for being the warmest of people, but service of the staff at the Madera Hotel defied this common (mis)perception.
Hong Kong is an expensive place and it took me a while to zero in on a hotel with a good location, reasonable rates and hopefully pleasant staff. The Madera Hotel did not disappoint.
It is very close to the Mong Kok station, but it is in a quiet side street. The subway station is just a corner away, around 3 minutes' walk. The hotel itself is fairly new, so you will enjoy crisp, new linen, fluffy, white towels. The room is a bit small, but I wouldn't say cramped. I've been in smaller but more expensive rooms in Hong Kong, so I won't complain about this. The bathroom is very clean, with a his and hers sink set-up.
My online booking did not include breakfast, though. And I don't think the hotel has a cafe or a restaurant. I am not sure about this. However, there is a cozy restaurant right in front of the hotel that serves more than decent food at reasonable prices.
The best surprise is the quality of service the staff extended. They were not off-putting, and were actually quite helpful each time we'd ask for suggestions.
Surely, I will be checking out other hotels to experience in my future trips to Hong Kong, but I am comforted by the thought that I can fall back on the Madera when I fail in my search for another great place to stay in.
