we stayed here in April 2013 as a family - 2 kids and 2 adults. Hired 2 rooms next to each others.
after reading the reviews we were expecting hard beds - when expectations are set low the actual result is not too bad :) Staff is friendly and very efficient. I'd also have to say I was surprised how spotless clean the rooms were. Views over the harbour were a bonus as well - although the weather was murky so couldn't see much.
Location is superb - close to MTR and buses - we've used both daily. We haven't had breakfast at the hotel so can't comment on the food. We went to a local Chinese place downstairs serving yum-cha / noodles etc. 1/2 min away from the hotel - they don't speak English very well, but food is very nice and authentic.
Note that the standard rooms and bathrooms are TINY! I was told by my husband that by Hong Kong standard this is normal for the price you pay. Its something to note if you haven't stayed in Hong Kong before as it might come as a surprise. Also after reading other reviews I expected a small room not a tiny one :) it wasn't a problem for us at all, as we barely spend time there. We've actually found it quite amusing in the end and have a bit of a laugh about it now and then: 2 people couldn't walk past each other around the bed, and when we had kids in our room (which was every morning) - we really had to plan who can stand up form the bed and walk sequentially with everyone needing to announce where they are going! I suppose a lot of people live in rooms of these sizes so it was a bit of a humbling experience for the kids (and us :))
all in all we've enjoyed our stay.
