Whenever one books a hotel in HKG, the cardinal rule is to ensure that's its close to the MTR. I'm a Holiday Inn Express Causeway Bay regular, so was eager to check out their new Kowloon East property. So glad I did. Though the Tseun Kwan O location is little far from the 'action', easy access to the MTR in the basement, through Popcorn Shopping Mall on the 1st floor, leaves no room for complaint. It's just 20 mins to anywhere you wish - that's not asking for much.
The staff are extremely helpful (I misplaced all the breakfast coupons and they were kind enough to issue me a whole new set). The room is clean, air conditioning perfect, and the toilets spacious by HKG standards. The free breakfast boasts of 4 set choices - I availed of it just 2 days - but was thoroughly satisfied with the servings.
The free wi-fi was the deal clincher. Good clean signal 24/7. No username/password required.
My only concern was easy access to the elevator. No key card verification is required. Anyone can take the elevator from the 1st floor (mall entrance). It could be a security hazard.
After 6 nights spent here, I'm off home tomorrow. Will certainly return.
