It's very convenient to go to this hotel by train.
From the station to the hotel is about 5~10 mins by walk.
Staffs are very friendly.
The room is very very small, but a big window is a plus.
For a one night stay, it is acceptable.

This hotel is a bit far from the main attractions in Hong Kong, but was easily accessible from the MTR and buses. Room was small, but staff were efficient and friendly, and the hotel is very well run. Skip breakfast, it's not inspiring.

We were assigned a windowless room at the 7th floor. We inquired for another room with a bigger bed but the front desk said that the other available rooms are smaller. So we just asked the front desk to put the two single beds together. We didn't mind much as we only need a place to spend the night. Breakfast options are decent for the price paid.

My family stayed at silka fareast last march 24 and 26. We were booked at rm 929. The room was clean but it was small and cramped and it didnt have a window! Felt claustrophobic. The carpet looked old and stained. The cr was small but nevertheless clean and was provided with toiletries.it had a tv, ref and water heater. It was basically a basic room where you get your money's worth if on a budget, and i think i would still stay there when i go back. But, i will make sure we will be booked in a room with window. Buffet breakfast was likewise good. Free wifi should be made available in all rooms and not just in the 6th flr and lobby.

The East Hotel in Hong Kong was a wonderful retreat after several very long working days in Hong Kong. I arrived in HK to conduct a week of business meetings and was advised that the East Hotel would be my home away from home. My office was a five minute walk and the hotel is centred in the Quarry Bay part of Hong Kong. A mix of residential condo towers and office towers. Did I mention the hotel is also directly linked to a large and very complete shopping centre, theatre and ice arena? The ride by taxi from Central train station (direct link to the new airport) was quick and easy. The lobby of the hotel is at ground level and is open and airy. The concierge are recognized by the suit with running shoes. Check in was quick and efficient. Security to your room and flora requires a swip of your electronic key. The rooms are fully appointed and the view are all water facing. Kowloon and Victoria Harbour lay at your feet. The solid glass wall least me in awe as I arrived in the dark and had to just sit on the bed to look out over the throbbing waterways and flashing city lights of Kowloon and Hong Kong. The jungle strewn hills adding a magical backdrop to the city and boat traffic. Due to jet lag I was up at 4 am and found the office very well designed to work at as the sun slowly rose in the East. Returning after dark from the office the bed and pillows were warmly welcomed.

Hotel meals were in the second floor restaurant. I did not have any meals there except for two breakfasts and found the food and service exceptional.

Good value, very comfortable, good location if you are in the East end of HK and only a 15 minute drive from downtown.

Room Tip: Get the East corner if you want to watch spectacular sunrises.

When me and my wife visit Hong Kong this is always our Hotel. Last October on my birthday, they even gave me a surprise basket full of fruits and chocolates. Location: It has the best location since it's still part of the red line mtr which is the main line connecting to all other mtr lines. It's also surrounded by lots of shopping malls, many food choices and close to the mtr station. Rooms: Rooms are clean and neat with fast wifi. It's my fourth time staying here and will definitly stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter and corner rooms are bigger rooms with windows...

This is where our agency has booked us. They have very small rooms and some with no window. Their bathroom as expected is small too but it is clean and air-conditioned is good. Their food is okay and they have free wi-fi at one area only. The hotel is in Tsuen Wan and a walking distance to Tsuen Wan MTR station. It is accessible and lots of stores around it.
