I stayed at the Best Western Hotel Harbour View during a trip to Hong Kong. The hotel is located about a 15 minutes walk from Sheung Wan MTR station and is around 10 minutes by taxi from the Airport Express Hong Kong station (the fare was around 25 HKD). The room is indeed small but then hotel rooms in Hong Kong are small. Many reviewers here complained about the size of the toilet and how their knees would hit the bathtub. I avoided this by asking for a room with a standing shower. The room was very clean and new with free wifi access-the hotel was less than a year old.
When I stayed there, complementary breakfast was not offered. That wasn't really a problem because there are stores that sell Cantonese style roasted duck and pork near the hotel. There is also a 7-11 nearby.
Despite the rooms being new, there are some points you must take note of. There was simply not enough lighting in the room which was disappointing given the room was new. No wardrobes are available but hooks to hang your clothes were provided in the room. You will also be likely to be interrupted by hotel staff in the morning who would bang the door and ring the bell asking if you need laundry service. During 'rush hours', the wait for the elevator will be very long with lots of frequent stops at many floors due to the number of guests that stay here.
Overall, I enjoyed the stay here with the hotel being new and clean with convenient access to Central, Hong Kong station and the ferry terminal to Macau. Will definitely stay here again.
