“Amazing garden view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

This hotel was far better than we expected. We had an amazing view from our deluxe room to Botanical garden and to Central area. Room was very nice and bed was good for spine! Bathtub was a bit too short but shower was fabulous.

Location is not optional but not too far. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel since there is a very good supetmarket in the building.

You can get to Peak tram very easily at the MacDonnell Road station/ tram stop. Just push the button and ask if there is room for you.

Sometimes you get to an hotel and everything seems to go wrong. We first had to wait two hours before our room was ready (we arrived at 4pm), once in the room it was alright (fairly clean, but very outdated). Next day we went for breakfast and the staff asked us for our COUPONS?!? Never got them when we checked in and according to the reception they were already issued... The swimming pool was closed due to maintenance, gym had its original equipment from 1956. To be honest, all could have been accepted, but when we expressed our dissatisfaction, the staff did not seem to care and most definitely didn't try to increase our satisfaction.

Nothing special to say, but this hotel is great for it's location, very near the botanic garden, 10min walking from the bar and restaurant area in HK, wich is very convenient.
Something that I dont really understand is that you have to pay 100UKD for a 24hours internet connexion ! Hey guys: 21st century.

Very good value for your money as well fresh feelings of the good quality of customer service.

Professional approach, care of customers and cleanness is a key differentiation of this 3 stars' accommodation

Beside of the good tips for my traveling i also got an upgraded room with excellent view for free

Convenient location

The rooms were spacious in the Garden View Suite we chose, but not so well planned. The Kitchenette had almost nothing in the way of utensils, not even a dish cloth. The bathroom had ample room, but with little space to put toiletries and makeup. And there was an unpleasant odour in it, that seemed to come from the plumbing. The towels were nice and thick though and the bathroom was clean. We found our room and the hotel overall very clean and well serviced. There is a good shop for general groceries just below the hotel. The staff were reasonably efficient and helpful. But what was really impossible for us, was the hard uncomfortable bed and flat, hard pillows. Not to mention the hard and uncomfortable sofa. The air conditioning worked well, but was noisy for sleeping. We didn't sleep well during our stay here. We hadn't asked specifically for a view and wished we had, because our view was into other apartments. Finally, you have to be energetic to walk up to this hotel from the city, the hill is steep.

The rooms are not really clean... Hair everywhere, the walls and windows are dirty. Even the bed sheets have some dirty spots. The bit plus point is the view of the room and the size which is quite reasonable for Hong Kong. If you want you can easily walk to the center, but be aware you will be sweating, the way goes up and down! Taxi drivers easily know the street and hotel which is convenient. There is a pool but didn't use it as I didn't look that clean... All by all the hotel gives you value for your money, as it's quite cheap, situated in the center and gives you some amazing views!

I lived in Hong Kong for many years so I knew the location for this hotel was excellent - close to Central and overlooking the HK Zoo Bird Sanctuary. I would hear the birds in the morning and it was lovely. The accommodation is really adequate & comfortable. I slept very well. I have serious back problems and was thrilled w the hard mattress. Some might find it too hard... but I was in heaven. There were MANY hangers in the closet and I was thrilled w. that too. (Hey, I am easy to please); mini fridge, water boiler kettle, and a pool to swim in every day. Just right for me. Price was excellent too. Free wi fi access in the lobby - but it was FREEZING in there .... they should provide free wi fi in the rooms, for goodness sake.
