I have been going to HK for more than 15 years, and more than 3 or 4 times a year. So safe to say that HK is like a 2nd home to me. Over the years, I've seen HK hotel prices go through the roof, so if you're on a budget (which in HK means around US$100 to US$150) but want to stay in the more relevant areas, you'd have to stay at the older hotels. Not anymore!
The Express usually goes for HK$830 to less than HK$1000, if you book early enough through their web site. It has all I need for a HK hotel, nice clean decent sized room, clean bathroom, good location and free internet. True, breakfast is tiny, but hey, you're in HK, the city of food. There is a Pizza Hut in the hotel, and the Entrecote steak restaurant is not bad too. Of course, at the Times Square Mall, you got the food court, plus some more food choices at the basement, as well as 4 stories of dining at the top of the mall.
I stay here most of the time when I travel alone, reserving stays at the Peninsula or Sheraton or Conrad or Island Shangri-La when I'm with my wife. It's the best value to come out of HK in a long time.More
