I was at the hotel in time of fairs, the hotel would know since I've been several times. While the rooms are small offset by the quality of breakfast and the location, the problem is the internet conexion is very slow and is cut, forget if you want to use skype the rest ok

This hotel is in a great location location, great shopping around and lots of restaurants nearby. What makes it even better its located near to a MTR station, you can easily access Hong Kong with the MTR. Room is small in size, as you expect from most hotel in Hong Kong. The room looks a bit old, but the price we paid for is reasonable.

We stayed here on route to New Zealand, with two night stop over. The hotel was excellent, although our room was very small with next to no view. This did not affect us as we were not there to spend time in the room. Situated on the mainland in Kowloon, not on Hong Kong island, was an advantage as the night markets etc are on this side. Walk around the corner to the quay, and pickup a 2 day hop on hop off bus ticket. This not only gives you three open top bus routes to travel, but also tickets on the famous Star Ferry, Funicular ride to the heights on Hong Kong Island and a trip on a Junk. A running commentary from the free earpieces in english means you can get a feel for the place at your own pace. Again on the waterfront, minutes from your Hotel is the free laser show at 8pm each evening. The buses also start from the quay and we caught one to the night market. You need the right money on the bus as they give no change. A good few days was spent using this hotel as our base. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. I would stay there again We travelled Nov 2011 but not much will have changed

nice location in kowloon, good accessibility righ above the subway. surrounded by lots of stores and food and activity. the harbour and waterfront area is just a short walk away. beware the roads without crossings - use the subway to cross them. dig the icemaker along the corridor :)

The hotel is in a great location! Close to all the attractions in Kowloon.
Metro red line right at the entrance to the hotel.
A short walk from Tsim sha Tsui Promenade
The only problem was with the hotel, is the payment of the internet.
And limited use of only two Ioserim! Pay attention.

Room Tip: Pay attention regarding the Internet is limited to two devices only!

I stayed in this hotel a couple of times in the past and I liked it. With this in mind, I booked this hotel more than a a month before when I wanted to bring my family for a 4nights/5days stay with breakfast and the shuttle service included. I was assured of a room upgrade which I am so happy and of course expected bigger and better room.

The room we all got was so small, smaller than what I got before with views on lousy building with lousy looking beds - a far cry to what I had before. And to think it was supposed to be an upgrade. With all the specifications we made when we booked and had to pay, amenities were lacking in the rooms when we arrived. We had to ask for towels and soap ...

It is not funny to have the glass doors on the bathroom... one needs to have your own privacy in there.

The dimsum restaurant that my son went so crazy about few years ago is not that good anymore besides looking like a cheap canteen now at sky-high price...

I know space in Hongkong is expensive but if price is not that cheap, then that also has to be there to justify it...

We can highly recommend this hotel,for its service,location and overall convenience.
It is situated above the train station,5 minutes to all the Ferries,and buses and convenient for shopping as well.The bus from the main station ,which is a free service ,stops right outside the hotel.When one leaves, the same bus picked us up and dropped us 10 meters from the checkin counters for the airport,which so convenient to have at the train station
We had a smaller room but very comfortable with every convenience one could need.
I wouldn't even look at another hotel in Hong Kong!!
