We always stay here in Hong Kong because it is walking distance from the home of some very close friends of ours who live at mid-level. I like luxury hotels, and though not anywhere near luxury, I gave this hotel 5 stars because for the price, this hotel is really nice and probably one of the best values in Hong Kong. The rooms and beds are small (2 twins if you want 2 separate beds), but the hotel is very clean, and the staff is courteous and helpful.
The hotel is in a great location --- just a quick cab ride (I think $8) from the IFC center where the airport train and some nice shops and restaurants are. The city zoo is just next door, and a grocery store is downstairs. In addition, you can walk 6 blocks to get to a larger children's playground and a walk-through aviary. I think the escalators also get you pretty close to the hotel, and if you know where you are going, you can walk through the zoo to the hotel. You can easily hail a cab.
Downside is that of course, this is not a full-service hotel (no porters, but maid service is pretty good). Breakfast is good, not great --- they have a basic congee, croissants, sausage, eggs, etc. The hotel is a quick cab (I think $3 to $4) to the Shangri-la hotel and the tram, but I didn't see any restaurants nearby, except for a very basic restaurant right next door.
I would definitely recommend to anyone that needs/wants to stay in mid-level or is looking for a value hotel in Hong Kong ---
