Reviewed October 27, 2013

I stayed at Two MacDonnell Road for 6 weeks when I moved to HK in October 2010. It was absolutely fine as a base to start with but could do with a microwave in room. The hot plate was a little dodgy but I was out and about, exploring my new home. The gym is adequate, laundry service efficient and room service was ok.

I know it's used for a few companies (most people I knew in my company who were expats had stayed here at some point) so it may not be the best place to be on holiday. It is centrally located though and I loved wandering across to the Zoological gardens to see the monkeys at the weekends. Handy minibus service down into town too.

Room Tip: The high floor tip others have given will enhance your stay.

Location- a bit far from metro, take some time to walk up there. But there is a bus at metro Admiralty can take you up there. The area is residence, not so much shop or store. Quiet at night. When you go back late, you might need to take taxi. Not in the downtown. It is not far from the mountain railway, take about 10mins walk to the station. Taking taxi wont cost you much.

No breakfast. With Gym. Wifi accessed.

Room- clean, because they dont have standard for my friends and me, they upgraded us to business suites, spacious, with simple kitchen, cozy living room. But for no reason,their aircon is freezing! I need to ask housekeeping to give me blanket, otherwise i would have to fight with my friend for quilt. With great view from room.

There are one tiny cvs around, and one supermarket, basically you can get anything you want, if you want to cook for your own.

If you like to be in the center of the action, this probably isn't the hotel for you. It's located on a quiet residential street, and nearly everything is a taxi ride away. That said, the hotel is clean, the staff friendly, and the prices reasonable. Studio, one- and two-bedroom units are more like apartments than hotel rooms and seem to attract a lot of business people on short-term assignments. A free shuttle to downtown central runs early in the morning and again from about 5 to 7 p.m.

Room Tip: The higher priced executive suites offer nice views of downtown Hong Kong, especially from the highe...

I stayed here for 6 nights and was upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite. I forgot to ask for a high floor with a view (as per previous reviews here on Tripadvisor) and think this is probably very good advice.

2 MacDonnell Road is functional. If you can get a good price, need to be near this area and don't need to stay too long then it's an OK service apartment.

The staff are pretty helpful, the internet connectivity is good and (for Hong Kong) the room size was good.

The service apartment is located in a residential area and therefore there is not much near by for food, bars, shops, etc. There is a good super market opposite in the YWCA building.

The gym is basic. If you plan to lift weights then know a routine with relatively light dumbbells. There are some great urban run routes near by for runners, especially Bowen road.

I stayed over a month in this hotel and it was good experience. Hotel reception is at 8th floor and rooms are located from 8th floor. First to seventh floor has some medical training institute.
What's good - Neat and clean rooms, good towels, nice wardrobes, Iron set available, calls are free within HK, Laundry service is quick. There are utensils for cooking. There is a super market just few meters away so everything is available for any needs. I had a nice view as i took the botanical side view of the hotel.
What's bad - Yes, there is a shuttle available but limited times, No buffet breakfast, rooms are small. I was on a business trip so survived in a small space but you need to understand that it's HK. Limited TV channels

Room Tip: Take a view which faces the botanical gardens.

Everything is quite good. I like the location and how close it is to Central. However, my advice for anyone staying short to long term is to get your laundry done elsewhere. The laundry service here is terrible! I think terrible is an understatement. My clothes sometimes came back not totally dry and sometimes they smells! Think it smells worse after laundry. There was once one of my blouses was not ironed! I will just have to look for alternatives now. Good to stay but don't ever use their laundry service.

I stayed at Two Macdonnell Road for a coule of months. The apartment I had (two rooms) was cozy and nice. Bathroom was surprisingly spacious. Housekeeping did a very good job, apartment was always very clean and nice. The building and the apartments are not modern, but homely, comfortable and in very good condition.
View (towards the Zoological Garden) absolutely gorgeous...
Kitchenette very small, not suitable for regular cooking. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Facing Zoological Garden! Higher floors are quieter.
