Stayed here for the Hong Kong Sevens weekend. Location of hotel is within 2 mins walk to Sheung Wan MTR station (take Hillier Street, exit A2) which is on the Island Line that connects you to Central, Wanchai, Causeway Bay.... The Airport Express Hong Kong Station is within 15 mins walk (if you're too early to catch the shuttle), and this hotel is the first stop for the free Airport Express Shuttle Bus (H1).
We like the location for its proximity to Soho shops (antiques, furniture, art galleries) and there are plenty of interesting restaurants to try. Gough Street is less than 5 mins walk from the hotel and is a good source for home furnishings. Tai Ping Shan area (Upper Station Road) and vicinity has cutesy galleries and boutiques. Walking to Central takes less than 10 minutes.
Dim Sum Square which is located just across the main entrance of the hotel serves excellent dim sum all day; so you can have dim sum for supper. Their custard buns and crispy bbq pork buns are excellent! There's a famous congee restaurant Sang Kee located on Burd St just behind the hotel, their beef noodle also seems to be popular.
also on Jervois st is Barista Jam; which serves great coffee (voted best latte in the local food mag); at HKD 39 for a large coffee, it's one of the better value coffee joints we found in Central HK.
If you run out of HKD, Cleverly Street (which intersects Jervois) has several moneychangers.
We made full use of the ice machine provided on the 3rd floor. The mini fridge in the room has been conveniently left empty for you to stock with your own drinks, there's a Wellcome supermarket on Queens Road, just across from the Hillier Street intersection.
We also enjoyed having breakfast on the outdoor terrace of the 2nd floor restaurant. Only quibble is that the breakfast spread stays exactly the same every day (for the 6 days of our stay).
The free wifi in the hotel worked perfectly. Rooms are reasonably sized (by Hong Kong standards) and the toilet/shower is very cleverly designed to maximise the use of space. Bed is very firm and there is a choice of firm or soft pillows provided.
All in all, we have a very good stay and would certainly use this as our base to explore Hong Kong if we were to visit again.
