We stayed for two nights at the 8th floor double room just before heading to Vietnam. Our double was actually a twin but moving the beds together was not a problem. The room is quite spacious and for the rate of under 100€/night we found it really worth the money. There really isn't much to whine about the hotel... maybe the elevators were a bit too slow and you can for sure find cheaper options from Kowloon and Mongkok area but the quality probably is not that good. We also never received the "special chocolates" that according to the booking site should have been given before the check out but there were some fresh fruits available upon arrival.
The view from the 8th floor is really great but might not be suited for everybody's taste (see pictures). Also the residents from the adjacent buildings are able to YouTube you if you don't keep the curtains closed. The shower head is attached to the wall so the shower use is not as easy as it might be. The in-room safe is big enough to house your two ipads, large dslr and a couple of objectives. There is also a hairdryer available, a TV with a couple of channels (some 10) and a standard sized minibar. All in all everythings quite as it should be.
We never tried the breakfast (73HKD/pers.) as there are much more interesting options available in the immediate area. Let's just say that you won't get starwed in HK. The location is altogether great with the ladie's market (not so great in itself) just around the corner and the northern "entrance" to the Temple Street night market just a couple of blocks down the map. There are also two subway stations nearby (with the same lines) Mong Kok & Yau Ma Tei.
We took a bus A21 from (and back) the airport and it took about 40 minutes to reach the closest stops at the Nathan Road. The bus runs really frequently, just reserve the exact amount of cash (or prebuy a ticket or an Octopus) with you. The area is really crowded but there is no problem getting to your room even with larger luggages. The hotel also offers a shuttle service from the airport with a higher price and a free shuttle from the hotel to the Airport Express station for free. The details are availble from the hotel's net-site.
