When you put it into perspective compared to other hotels and when you need to pay upwards of $250 per night to get even a decent sized room, then perhaps you will forgive the pathetic room sizes.
Firstly, you need to take an elevator to lvl 4 to even get to the front desk. if you dont have a room on this level. be prepared to take another elevator from the laundry room that is so bloody slow!!!!!
youll end up on a random section of this building going into another door which is a small wing of california hotel,which is segmented amungst other hotels and peoples homes. super super confusing at first!
the room, well....its tiny. im talking 4x2m including your bathroom. which happens to be 1x1.5m which is your whole shower with a toilet and sink in it.
you get what you pay for and if you dont like it, do spend more money!
besides, your only there to sleep (if you can get to sleep on the rock hard beds) as youll be out all day exploring the amazing city of Hong Kong!
If you need any printing done, forget it, there is a computer for guests to use in the lounge (if you can bare the stench of the smoking next to you), but there is no printer to attached and if you ask reception to print it, youll be looking at $10HK a page for a very crap quality black and white print.
Depsite all the downfalls, its a awesome location, close to transport, a 6min walk down to the promenade on the harbour, 5min from HK Island, and 5min train to the temple st markets.
The room and linen was clean, had a hair dryer and the bed is raised enough to fit 2 large suitcases underneath to maximise floorspace in the room.
Expect the rooms to be small for the price, it is what it is in Hong Kong, Whether its this hotel or another.
