Centrally located but not top noche

position in the heart of hk
5.7
large and nice rooms with a view. old hotel, needs some renovation. good gym fascilities. no wifi in rooms, which is very bad, and also the cable for the internet worked very slow - and you have to pay for it still, and also for using wifi in the reception areas. should have been for free, and should have had wifi solutions in the rooms. no good english proficiensies of the staff in the lobby (girls - seemed to be from mainland china). but nice position close to center of central in hong kong.

5.7
Good sized room and nice view. Overall not a new hotel, but the rooms and also the gym was good. The closeness of the hotel to the Central area of Hong Kong is very good, and also easy to fin a taxi outside. Clean rooms and everything worked. Bad things were that the Internet and wireless solutions in the hotel were poor. First, bying the internet access via cable in the room gave a very slow line. The rooms have no Wifi, and using the Wifi in the reception you have to pay for! These things they should have fixed. ALso the reception staff (2 at least) had very bad English knowledge and lacked service attitude. Seemed not be be trained for hotel work. Still - if you need a bed centrally located and no use of Internet this is a good place to stay.

not so near downtown, yet not so far. the hotel itself is decent, but lacking public wifi. need to go by taxi or bus to get to town. other than that, pretty good

Its nice hotel, located in Central of Hong Kong near park. Very quiet so if you want night live and shopping you need to walk or take taxi. Rooms are clean and big enough for Hong Kong

The location was good, with a short ride from the hotel tou reach the pier and a big mall.
Bogomir K. Business travelers Austria, April 13, 2012
Very good location

The botanical garden is just 1 minute around the corner
6.3
Beside the good location the rooms are reasonable. Unfortunately the bed is hard as a board. Most of the Asians rather like it, for me as an European it's a challenge to get a sleep.
Travel tip: Soho with a great choice of restaurants is only a walking distance away.

Good value for the money

Great location, comfortable room

i enjoyed my stay at the garden view. the room was perfect: comfortable, spacious enough, good features... the only defect i will point out is there are no wifi connections in the rooms, but a ethernet one. the location is great. i have been able to spend all my stay without taking buses or subway, from soho to causeway bay, so easy. if you don't like walking, taxis are easy to find and there is also a small bus that is often passing by. there is a supermarket next to the hotel that is very convenient when you don't want to go to the restaurant all the time. gorgeous park across the road. unfortunately, the swimming pool was closed when i stayed there. i will definitely come back to this hotel for my next stay in hk if the rates remain the same.

will stay here again. reasonably priced.great location for shopping, just above central district, east pacific shopping ctr. easy to find taxi, mini-bus. across from zoo and botanical garden. walking distance to central as well. safe and nice view. hk is a great shopping place but the prices may not be 'cheap'. lots of shops competing against each other. nice expensive shops as well as less expensive ones.

I really loved the location of this hotel. There was a nice outdoor basketball court adjacent to the hotel, where I was able to excersice and play with the locals. I enjoyed the chinese restaraunt next to the lobby, the food was fabulous. I will definately stay here again.

Cheap place on the island

The hotel is a little run down and the service is not the best, there was a lot on complication with the check-in process which may have been from a new employee. The rest of the stay was ok in terms of service. The rooms are quite large for Hong Kong island standards with a nice and large bathroom. The view from the hotel can be very nice if you stay on the park side of the hotel. The bed was VERY hard and made it difficult to sleep. It's also worth pointing out that there is no internet service in the hotel, none in the lobby and none in the rooms. The hotel is a short 20 min walk to central HK and a 5 minute walk to the Peak tram. Beware if you are not in good shape as there are a lot of steep hills and step along the way. The hotel is in a location that can be challenging to those traveling with elderly and children.
