the hotel experience makes up of different things. this hotel has possibly the most unfriendly reception ever in hong kong. many hotels make up for the rude reception with efficiency, but not here. they are just plain rude. the lobby itself is quite nice, but that's about it. once u go up the elevator, that's the end of the nice decor.
one of the elevators closes so fast that a lot of people had their belonging trapped. quite hazardous. we were given the room right next to the housekeeping, and it was quite noisy. but that's understandable. what's worse and dangerous was that they kept the service trolley on the hallway. this certainly would be extremely dangerous in the event of fire or an emergency. the trolley basically block access to the hall way.
breakfast was in the basement and wasn't that bad actually. nothing else was memorable though.
for business folks, don't expect any flexibility at this hotel. check in and check out is sharp on the dot, no excuse given. if u leave the bag at the hotel overnight, it's 10HK$ per bag :)
