When I walked into the hotel lobby, I guess it gave the expection of the room. The lobby is small, practical and trendy. We walked to the reception desk and we were greeted by a friendly staff.
After fill in the check-in form and passport inspection, I was asked to give a deposit of HK$300. This is not my first time I have encountered such request in Hong Kong, it is more or less normal practice. The staff informed us that we have got an "upgrade" and we prompty went upstairs by the lift to see our upgraded room.
I think the lobby of the hotel did set the scence of the room. I remember I use the word "cute" when I first walked into the room. The first impression of the room was small and smart.
The room is clean and tidy. The person who did the interior design of the room do manage to use every inch of the room without wasting any space.
In the room I stayed it has 2 single beds within the bedroom, next to one of the bed is a "semi-glass wall" partition between the bathroom and bedroom, this partition does give a trendy atmosphere to the room. Next to the other bed is the windown of the room, the window is sealed and can't be opened.
We went downstairs to the 5th floor "Breeze bar". To be honest "The Breeze bar" is actually just a nicely converted roof terrance of the base building. It offers self service complementary coffee and free wifi services. When we went there it was empty and we have the entire "bar" for ourselves. The bar isn't grand but it does have modern touch.
The location of the Hotel isn't great. It is not near a MTR station. It is 15+ minutes walk to Time square. Time sqaure do have an MTR entrance but it is a good 10 minutes walk from the entranace to the train platform.
Surronding the hotel isn't much to see or shop either. The PRC Chinese News Agency is next door and Happy Valley Horse Racing course is within viewing distance.
One good thing is that the number 10 bus stop to central is right outside the building and the airport express shuttle bus stop in front of the hotel too. It is only a short walk to catch the number 6 bus to Stanley and number 15 bus to the peak.
On the hold it is a okay hotel but don't expect too much. Not my first choice
