Stylish hotel but will not stay here again..
Stylish, posh lobby and corridors
- Close to Wanchai station (3 min)
- Near Tram stop (1 min)
- Very clean, stylish lobby and corridors
- Pool and gym at top floor
- Spacious room compared with most competitors in same area
- Plenty or bars and restaurants nearby
- Useful supermarket across street (and so many convenience stores, too)
- Internet access is not easy (see details in "OTHER COMMENTS" section)
- Some part in room is still looking old even after renovations
- Bathroom is so tiny
There are many PROS for this hotel. However, I would NOT come back here again. The reason is clear: very bad internet services inside the room. First, you need to buy ID at the reception or call someone to send it to your room (you cannot do it online). Second, internet connection gets really really slow around midnight (maybe because of many users at the hotel at once). Third, the worst reason, you cannot use your mail software such as MAIL (Mac) or Thunderbird. You will have to access to web-based mail services to receive and send emails. Depending on the server to access, I was actually able to EITHER send or receive emails. But not both.
I need to do quite a lot of works at the hotel, so this place is not suitable for me.
If you come without a PC, then this place would be good. But not for me, I must say.

the hotel is in a great location for those who enjoy the night life! plenty of pubs and restaurants. the hotel is clean and service was good.
Becareful where you drink and never leave your drink unattended! Drugging of drinks very common in this area.

Convenient location, clean rooms
arrived a little late as flight was delayed. room was ready and check in was quick. room was nice and enjoyed a quick shower. downside was the price as there was a multi-convention in town this weekend so prices were 2x normal.

A very good choice for a mid range hotel
staff - very friendly and competent.
the reception voluntarily upgraded me which was a pleasant surprise. the room was good but close to needing a refinish. still very acceptable but just showing a few signs of wear. overall i was very happy with my decison to stay at this hotel and am thinking of booking it again.
Hotel Feature Tip:
free bus to and from MTR central station

Location, no fuss, reasonable price.
This is a nice clean hotel in a very convenient location in Wan Chai. Not as fancy or large as some other choices, but not as expensive.
The rooms and bathrooms are small, but this is Hong Kong. I'd come back for an affordable and pleasant place to rest my head.
You need a card to get up in the lift, so get any guests to ask for access at reception if you don't want to come down and collect them.

nice hotel, great service
Great hotel with a fantastic location in Wanchi.
Serious value for money compared to other hotels in the same price bracket.
Would only ever stay in this hotel on Hong Kong visits

Nice hotel at convinient place
Easy transportation, close to bars
I took express train to arrive hotel.
Actually there is another buget choice, Just cross the street, take bus E11, hk$21, you arrive the airport.
Walk distance to many places including subway stations. But if you mainly go there for shopping, maybe you'd better stay in a hotel at causeway bay.
No free Internet is a minus.

Good location, but everything is rather basic.
Hotel is very well situated, transportation are easy to reach. Everything is almost in walkable distance.
The Reception was rather poker face, but they get the job done, shouldn't be ask too much for 3 stars hotel. I have been using this hotel for many times, but I still felt like a stranger there.
Nevertheless, Concierge staffs were always friendly, and welling to help, as least they know to greet me with smile "Welcome back."
Room is clean but very basic, just another 3 stars hotel standard.
The swimming pool and the gym on the roof top was a plus, especially for the hot Hong Kong weather.
Tried to talk to the Sale team for opening an commercial account, but obviously they were too busy to handle my request, no one has time to do so during my 4 days staying there.

Convenient, close to MTR, restruants and pubs
Convenient, close to MTR, restaurants and pubs. But it gets a bit noisy at on weekend night. I stayed at 16F, and can still hear the loud music from near by pub / bars.
Room is spacious and clean. But the washroom could use some renovation.
