Garden View Hong Kong

Reviewed April 16, 2013

The hotel is located in the midst of Mid-levels high-rise condos in a quiet neighbourhood. The location is convenient in going to/from the city center. It is even on the path where the Peak trams pass by. This hotel is quaint but very clean. The views are great from the window of my room. There is a grocery nearby, so food is not a problem, even at night.

We found the location convenient, the rooms clean, and the hotel providing just the right level of services, with the one possible exception the price/availability of their Internet. However, I enjoyed checking my email and surfing the web while sitting in the beautiful park/garden across the footbridge, where the "Free Government WiFi" signal is strong. A great excuse to get into some fresh air, enjoy beautiful surroundings, and be away from the hustle and bustle for a bit! We ended up buying the breakfast buffet every morning we were there (the restaurant offers free WiFi to patrons). It is not inexpensive (and not included with our room), but offers a good value and was vital fueling for our busy six days of seeing sights in and around Hong Kong!

Acknowledging the general assumption that hotel price in HK is expensive, you want to secure yourself and your belongings. That is why I chose this place. To get there, my guide book told me to take a bus ride from Central area. Howeer, it is actually easy walking distance from MRT Central station, once you know how to walk. Some drawbacks are there was no swimming pool in operation, no cozy but inexpensive restaurant, etc. Parhaps, it is valid to consider this place as business hotel.

There is a supermarket, and nice massage/facial place right next to it - Renaissance Beauty Center. Also there is nice coffee shop type of restaurant within the park down the road. You need to explore a little by yourself

I stayed here for two nights in order to be close to a friend who lives on the Peak. It was perfect for that and in a quieter location than most hotels in HK, although this also means that it's away from bars, shops etc. and not easy to get to/from on public transport. My view of the skyline towards the Bank of China tower was impressive, especially at night. The room was quite plain but clean and comfortable and I slept well. The bathroom was good, especially the shower.
I did not use the restaurant or other facilities so cannot comment on these.
I was disappointed that there was not free wifi - even in the lobby there was a charge of 100HKD to connect, despite signs saying "free wifi for patronage".

Room Tip: Avoid a room opposite/near a lift

Very clean,with small rooms...but thats usual in Hong Kong! Beside the hotel is the Zoological and botanic garden ...free of charge! great place to relax in the middle of madness...Very close to the Peak View which YOU MUST SEE...The taxi down the Honk Kong centre is only 3 euros so it is great location especially if you travel with children...Easy to find too...

Room Tip: Nice view of the garden

Pretty standard hotel- the rooms are basic. The location is good, near to a beautiful zooalogical and botanic garden. Not near to a mtr but busses are good and can walk back from central in about 30 mins.
The hotel was well priced when booked in advance and through booking.com. If you book when you arrive, the prices are increased quite a bit.
Minuses are the breakfast isn't included and is expensive (we paid for it once and it was terrible!) also wifi not included which a lot of the other hotels provided for free so I think the hotel should consider including this in the price.
Hotel staff were ok- some more helpful and happier than orhers
Would go back but will make sure we book in advance next time!
