Search no more. Add that extra cash saved to your shopping allowance rather than stay at another hotel having the same category around the Jordan area. I have tried 2 newer hotels in the same area and nothing beats my stay here.
Location is probably their strongest plus. The MTR station is just around the corner while the bus and taxi stops are just a few steps away from the entrance. This means that if you're coming back to the hotel from a shopping spree carrying tons of bags, you're not going to walk far straining your arms and legs, especially when you're taking the MTR. Temple street is just a few minutes walk which is a good place for last minute shopping. If you're an early riser, chances are most of the shops are still closed. You can head on to the nearby Kowloon Park for some nature tripping and people watching.
Don't expect a big room, it's quite small even for us Asians but its clean. The bathroom is sparkling. I think it's newly refurbished as seen in my photos.
Now if breakfast is included in your package, be prepared to eat hotdog, ham and toast every morning. The only thing they change is the siding that goes with it - noodles, fried rice and scrambled egg. You have an option though to try their breakfast buffet for an additional HKD60.
My overall experience with this hotel is quite pleasant. Just don't expect any frills or even exceptional service. I guess my search for a great value hotel has ended for now, so I won't be looking for a new hotel on my next visit to HK.
