I stayed in the Honlux for two weeks on my first business trip to China as it is the hotel that my company uses for all its employees. It's just a short walk from the ferry port (just be aware of a few of the seedier bars on the way) and while the subway is just across the road I didn't get a chance to use it.
The hotel seemed very nice and the air conditioning was a welcome relief after the hot and sticky weather outside. All the staff were really pleasant and I found the breakfast perfectly adequate, and the complimentary "happy hour" in the dining room was always nice - tea or coffee and sandwiches/cake - although never particularly busy. The room was a decent size, not much different to budget UK hotels with a well fitted bathroom which had a tray full of bits and pieces - shaving kit etc.
Surrounding the hotel in Sea World square is a wide variety of bars and restaurants where you will find everything from Starbucks and McDonald's to an Irish bar, a German bar/restaurant and a Japanese Teppanyaki where you can have all you can eat and drink for the equivalent of about £18 - and half the enjoyment is watching the chefs prepare and cook all the food right in front of you.
A short walk from the hotel you reach plenty of shops selling just about anything that you can imagine, and there's also a small "mountain" nearby that gives good views across the city.
If you're stuck for something to waste a couple of hours, I would suggest a haircut at the shop on the corner just outside the hotel - an hour and a half being washed, conditioned, massaged, trimmed, washed again and finally dried and styled for £8 was bliss !
I look forward to my next trip in February.
