We have stayed at this hotel on almost 70 occasions over the past 20 years, so not unexpectedly we can refer to it as a home away from home.
Many of the staff know us by name, and even if it is some months since a previous visit we are always greeted by name.
Lower numbered rooms are away from Nathan Road and quieter.
There are a number of eating establishments and the buffet breakfast enough to last well past lunch time.
Its location is unbeatable, right on Nathan Road with a multitude of buses, barely 5 minutes walk to the MTR station, maybe 10 minutes walk to the Star Ferry, and also the Tsim Sha Tsui East station and trains into China.
There are many shops in close proximity, however be aware that there are tourist prices and there are other prices, so know your price before you start shopping, and bargaining.
Make sure the item you get is what you actually expect, and not some "local" model.
Adjacent to the hotel is Chungking Mansion with many legitimate, no coimmission foreign exchange outlets; don't go to others in the street who all charge commission and have much worse exchange rates.
You'll also find many small shops and restaurants in this building, but take care of your belongings, as you would anywhere you might travel.More
