“Budget hotel”
Reviewed August 2, 2008

I had booked 3 nights stay in this hotel via a travel agency in Singapore. The price is ok for a tourist 3 star hotel.

I had requested via my agent for a triple bed room. However, upon arrival, it was actually a double single bed with a foldable bed. And the room is superbly tiny. There's no walking space once you had brought your luggage into the room. Thanks goodness, we didn't bring a lot of luggages.

The ensuite toilet with shower facility is small too. Wash basin is tiny. Expect splash of water on the floor when you wash your face. Shower curtain has the old fungi stain. Not a pleasant sight if you're the fussy type.

Thankfully, the room is clean. It has a small tv, mounted on the wall, an electric water pitcher and the necessary toiletries.

Location wise is good. Within walking distance are the Temple Street night market and the Jade Market. The MTR Yau Ma Tei is also nearby.

I wouldn't recommend for family with children. Room is too small. Couple should be ok.

Before we booked for the hotel, read many negative reviews on the size of the hotel. However, we chose this hotel due to the feedback on the location of the hotel.

Indeed, the location is really convenient. Minutes to the Yau Ma Tei MTR. And there are many food/ cafe nearby the hotel. Temple Street Market is minutes away too.

Yes, the rooms are small, however, since there are so many things to see and do in Hong Kong, you will hardly be in the hotel room, so the small size of the room is not a problem for us.

'Just came home from a business trip in Hongkong. We stayed here at the Dorsett Seaview fo the reason that it is one of the in demand hotel from my clients. Though i'm a travel agent/tour organizer in the Philippines, i never got the chance in staying here. The rooms were small but one thing i was impresses is the cleanliness and affordable price of this hotel. Considering that i have a business meeting and did not stay too much with the hotel, I could say Dorsett Seaview is a pretty much a good option. Also, flight schedule monitor is very recognizable at the lobby, in which case making it a hassle free one for its patron. The location is also an asset. (situated near the night market and MTR station). Friendly tip: bring your own umbrella! My dad borrowed umbrella and the front desk officer were very rude and told us "you buy!". We were thankful he's (front desk officer) not in the Philippines. Otherwise, he'll expect some trouble and body aches. Kudos to the management of Dorsett Seaview for a job well done (except to that guy... here's my message: please do not come to the Philippines and something bad will hapen to you).

Like many reviewers have posted before the rooms are extremely small so therefore if you're looking for a regular to big size hotel room it is not ideal. Then again when you go to Hong Kong you are not going to be staying at the Hotel, so you basically just need a place to sleep which is excellent. The room was always clean and the service from the front desk was excellent. Literally 5 minutes away from Yau Ma Tei MTR station, and really close to the police station, mcdonalds, many amazing restaurants, footsteps away from Temple Street and Nathan Road. This was the best place in regards to location (which is excellent), cost, and quality. For those travellers who are taller, it may be difficult to stay here because Im 5'9 and I just fit on the bed length wise, so if you are over 5'9 be prepared to have your feet hang over the bed. Other then the size of the room I have no other complaints. I will defintely go back to this hotel due to its location and price.

Just came back from HK yesterday.. The country was excellent, with tons of things to eat, shop and see.. The hotel(Dorsett Seaview) we stayed in were alright to us althought the negative feekback from other travellers. I agreed that the room was really small, but the location was good. The service of the front office personnel is also not bad. Nt a bad choice if you are trying a hotel at the area.

This hotel is just a 5 minutes walk away from Yau Ma Tei MTR, and a 30 second walk from the famed main streeet: Nathan Road! Hence its location allows you to explore the entire stretch of Nathan Road, including Mongkok, Jordan, Woman's Market, Temple Street on foot. The police station is also located right across the street hence making it a very safe place to stay in. It has numerous eateries around the hotel which operated till late at night. The reception is professional and polite.
The room and toilet are clean and neat. But 1 grouse though; the room is really very small as mentioned in most of the reviews and it does not even come with a clothes cabinet. If you are alright with it, then the room is totally alright to stay in. I will definitely come back here again the next time i travel to HK.

The night market is right outside the hotel. The surrounding area is great, a short walk to the MTR and great location.

The rooms are SMALL. I read reviews of the hotel before we booked it since we needed a place to stay when we came back from Thailand and noticed many reviews indicating the small rooms but I thought it couldn't be THAT small and this had the cheapest rate available. I booked a room with two beds.

The room was SO small...there was absolutely no room to put both of our luggages. We had to put it in the entryway (which was very small to begin with) to open it up, my friend and I each taking turns. There was no walking room thereafter. We eventually realized there was a funky stench underlying a bleach smell and asked to be moved to be another room. The front desk was really helpful in moving us, but they were only able to move us to one double bed. This room doesn't get bigger.

This is a cheap hotel but there's really NO space and it's confining. You may find other hotels at around the same rate and same area as we stayed in another hotel before Thailand.
