Just stayed in Royal Plaza Hotel for 2 nights. Its supposed to be 5 star but whenever I tell Hong Kongers that the response was "How can there be a 5 star hotel in Mongkok?" True enough it wasn't exactly luxurious and the surroundings are clearly not glam. But its clean and well maintained and the rooms are spacious. I had a very comfortable stay there.
Location wise its quite good. Maybe a 10 minute walk to the nearest MTR station which would take you to most places you would ever visit in Hong Kong (Causeway bay, central, Tsim sa tsui etc etc) within a maximum of 1 change of train (except to Disneyland). The walk to MTR isn't uncomfortable since its sheltered all the way.
Then there are all the cheap bazaars around at ladies market and fa yuen st. And cheap food all around, the hotel being situated in Mongkok.
Breakfast at the hotel was quite bad (or maybe its because our group was huge and the prepared food separately and served us substandard food) but again, this being Mongkok, it your stomach is relatively strong, it shouldn't be hard to find yummy local food to fill your tummies.
