I stayed here for 4 nights with my partner last August on our way to Europe. Like most people, I was initially attracted to the hotel because of its Phillip Starck design, and it certainly did not disappoint on that score, but its famous designer does somewhat overshadow the fact that this is a great little hotel in every way.
We stayed in a studio, which was tiny but very cleverly designed and very comfortable. My only note is that for a fairly recent hotel I was surprised that the marble in the bathroom was rusted. But this certainly did not detract from the amenity of the room. It was very comfortable and quiet.
Staff were excellent, as one expects in HK. We ate at one of the hotel's two restaurants and it was fine. The free breakfast and afternoon wine at the large communal table in the lobby is a nice touch and does make you feel a bit more like you are in a home than a hotel. It also gives you an opportunity for fun people watching - the hotel's guests seemed to primairly be well-heeled young people when we were there.
The hotel's best point, though, has to be its location. We'd previously stayed in Kowloon and Central and they're fun, but Causeway Bay literally bustles all night long. There are lots of cheap eats and great shopping around the area, and the MRT station is just a short walk from the hotel.
Would definitely recommend it.
