When I arrived at the hotel i was a bit disappointed by the outside, the concierge staff are very polite and were helpful throughout my stay whenever I had any questions and would always tell me both the cheapest and most convenient way to get to where I wanted to go. The reception staff were very blunt and abrupt and nowhere near as helpful as the concierge.
My hotel room was small but very clean and had a wonderful view over the harbour. The bathroom was absolutely tiny.
I ate in the hotel but found that the food was nothing to rave about and quite expensive.
The pool is small and disappointing and if you like to sunbathe it is virtually entirely shaded unless you are actually in the pool.
The hotel is in the western district of central, but you can use the tram or bus which is very cheap and only a couple of minutes to the ferry and central district, I actually liked to walk and look at all the smelly shops! It only takes about 20 minutes to walk from the Star Ferry and you pass loads of shops where you can get plenty of drinks and stuff cheaper than the hotel!
The only thing really negative that I have to say is that the air con is really really noisy so I had to turn it off at night, luckily it was not particularly warm when I was there but I imagine if you were there when it was then it would be really annoying!
Other than that a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend it.
