Booked the standard room with 1 double bed. Tight space but I think it was efficiently used. Very clean, looked new and bright. A basic, contemporary, budget hotel.
The reception is on the 5th floor and it was very busy when we checked in, and busy when we checked out (and asked them to keep our bags for a few hours).
Short walk to the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal. Perfect for us doing a day trip to Macau - going back late in the evening.
The only turn-off: the powder in the complimentary sachets of coffee and creamer were all clumped up. Seemed like it's been there since the hotel was built. Didn't bother taking our usual morning coffee in bed.
I loved the floor to ceiling windows as it lets all the light in - but we chose to shut the thin curtains most of the time anyway as the windows (we later found out) were not designed for privacy - you could see through from outside in. I noticed this when I was at the hallway by the elevators that had windows facing a side of the hotel building. I saw everyone. And our room window was facing a few buildings.
This is a good hotel if you already know your way around using public transportation and/or would like to explore other or the more everyday spots in HK. May not be the best option if you want to be efficient with time in seeing the (touristy) sites or shopping for souvenirs.
