Acesite Knutsford Hotel
Ranked #227 of 727 Hotels in Hong Kong
Reviewed November 29, 2007

Actually is this my first night staying at this hotel and wanted to share what a surprise find this is. The rooms are definitely small, I could barely fit two pieces of luggage (1 medium & 1 large) without blocking my only pathway to the door but I really like how its clean!

This place must have been recently renovated as it looks fresh and almost new. Or because not many people know about this yet. Room rates are decent compared to what you can find in HK but knowing the standard of room vs price, this is a good deal. On average I paid HKD850, my package is minimum 4 night stay.

The easiest way to tell the taxi driver how to find this is mention Stanford Hilltop hotel and its just on the right hand side street. In between two Irish pubs.

There's a supermarket on Kimberly road which is 2-3 minutes walk from hotel. Close to the main strip of Tsim Sha Tsui.

Ashame the "indoor" pool is closed during winter (??).

I've posted some pictures as well.

Dislike - small room and the difficulty walking up the sloped street to get here.
Like - free wireless internet, on demand movies/mtv from your room and cleaniness of room.

My Daughter and I stayed at the Mingle for 3 nights. At first it felt a bit weird as the rooms are so small, but when you get used to it and see all the great stuff they have packed into the room it is really well designed.

I did not like the corridors and lobby etc as they were so tiny and cramped.

Good location, the guys running the show where friendly, I good choice if the price is right.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in deluxe. The room was ok, not too big but also not too small. The staff was quite nice and the service center was very helpful and attend our problem, which was quite a few. The location of the hotel was great, it's located near a lot of restaurants, shopping places, and there's a good money changer that offered quite a good price for US$, it's also near an MTR just a walk around the block.
The moment we arrived at the mingle and wanted to check-in, we were quite shocked when the staff said that they didn't have our reservation, which we actually re-confirmed 2 times via telephone 2 days before and 1 day before. It was quite a shock for us and they didn't give us introduction about the hotel and it's facilities which is just a small detail but it's quite affecting our judgement for a hotel.
It's a nice small high tech hotel, but the staff seems to have less knowledge about the tech in the hotel itself, such as the fingerprint recog which i actually asked after i got into my room and saw the fingerprint recog device near the door (and it's also seem that the device didn't worked cause we still need to swipe our card upon enter).
There was also problem with our A.C cause it's making noise in the night which disturb our sleep and in the morning the floor underneath the AC was dripping wet. But the service center fixed that problem right away in the morning for us nicely.

I recommend this hotel if you're young people (single, couple, friends), not travelling with families (babies), full amenities of a hotel (internet (wireless signal is poor, but cable's connection is quite decent), movie, small kitchen, lcd screen, bathroom tv, tea making eq, etc)
I don't recommend if u want good pool, really good service, comfy bed (it's not too soft).

Overall it's good hotel, but a bit overvalued cause they didn't live up to the expectation of their ads, I will take this hotel as my reserve if my primary hotel in HK is full :)

Location is excellent - right in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui within 5 mins walk to the MTR station!

Design of the hotel is chic - very cool yet elegant design of the facade!

Rooms are well-maintained and come with FULL amenities a traveller would expect. Entertainment system is fantastic with so many movies and music titles to choose from. The free broadband internet access is a real bonus. Many hotels in Hong Kong are charging HK$100 per day but it's absolutely free here!

Food choice is aplenty here. Four restaurants are housed in the hotel and there are many more restaurants just across the street along the famous Knutsford Terrace.

The business centre is well-equipped with PCs, printer and fax machine. A swimming pool is also available for those who want to relax in after a day of work and/or shopping.

Overall, this is an excellent choice for anyone visiting Hong Kong!

I stayed at Mingle Place from 26 June for 7 nights. The hotel is situated in Observatory Court which is the road opposite the Stanford Hillview hotel which not all taxi drivers are aware of. This hotel is a boutique style hotel with rooms featuring LCD panel televisions, fingerprint recognition technology for the room doors (mine didn't work and was issued with a door card), air conditioning. Please be aware that the single rooms are very compact, particularly the bed which was just about long enough for me (I'm 5ft 8in)! Bed linen was clean but the blanket thin but heavy given the hot and humid climate. Bath linen changed daily. The bathroom was similarly compact with a walk in shower and very small sink. The room was made up every day although I noticed that the mirror panels in the room were never dusted down. Tea making facilities are provided and there is a small fridge under the token storage space area for hanging your clothes. The room boasts wireless networking, but the signal strength was consistently poor and non-existent and I gave up trying to connect at times although a network cable was provided (results equally poor). Staff were efficient and courteous but did not really go that "extra mile".

The area is minutes from the well known Nathan, Carnarvon, Granville Road areas for shopping although Harbour City is also nearby and a favourite (and the local Fitness First gym!) and eating areas. You are also well served with bars and restaurants in the cosmopolitan Knutsford Steps area which is literally 2 mins from the hotel. Tsim Tsa Tsui MTR also close by.

Unfortunately, I am unlikely to be returning to this hotel which promised much but failed to deliver overall.
