We stayed in Stanford for couple of days whilst visiting Hongkong. Location is good but not great. Its between two MTR stations so about 10min walk away to either, we usually used Mong Kok. Close to ladies market street and lots of shops with shoes and camera accessories. We havent tried any restaurants near the hotel but they looked good from the outside, full of locals, not many foreigners so we werent brave enough to go and try. Internet is for free and quite good coverage in the rooms (unlike some other hotels I stayed in in the past) but that may vary based on the room location I suppose. One thing we didnt like was that when we checked out and asked them to keep our luggage they just put it outside the hotel behind the window and locked together with a padlock and a wire. Perhaps its normal there in the hotel but I was a bit concerned if they would spot someone nicking one of the bags or searching through them. At the end all was fine but we just were surprised they did not have some secure store room inside the lobby for example.
Transport tip, best to take a taxi to/from the airport rather than hotel shuttle. We paid hkd 250 on our way in and hkd 240 on the way out and that was base fare plus luggage fee. Shuttle is 130 per person and only goes at fixed times.
All in all I would recommend the hotel considering prices in HK £120 per night wasnt that expensive.
