Basic but nice

Very affordable for hong kong, clean, good bed, enough space, central (see below)

This hotel is quite central, but to get there, from bank of china building, it's quite a climb along the peak tram line. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes or take a cab. The hotel is in general nice and prices are below hong kong average. Last time I stayed here they upgraded me for a suite which has a stunning city view. This time we were given a normal deluxe room, so no view, but clean and comfortable. Too bad the breakfast is not included but for something like 80hk you get a fairly good choice of eastern and western food at the buffet downstairs. Overall, nice and will probably go back there next time.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Across the street from the hotel is the hong kong zoo. We found it a good way to get to central area to just cut through the zoo in the morning (it's free) greet the urangutans and exit through the other end, and then down to queens way, through any of the steep street market alleys.

The location was great. The rooms were clean, tidy and very nice. This hotel actually exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone and will be staying there again on my next trip.
Restaurant Tip: If you cut through the Botanical gardens its quicker to get to the restaurant quarter.

Pleasant Surprise

Great value, very clean

I accidently booked this hotel rather than the more popular and well published YMCA-Salibury hotel in Kowloon. I was very disappointed by my mistake but it was only for 1 night. Well, the hotel turned out to be fine. The hotel is very new and the romms were very clean. The location is not good (very far from MTR station) and no services like internet. But it is just a short taxi ride to MTR, train station, ferry, etc. If you can get a really cheap rate ($100-150US) you do not need to worry about the hotel quality. It is really very clean and pleasant.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Take the Airport Express train to/from the airport. It is only a few minute taxi ride from Central station. The train is very nice, fast and cheap. You can even check in your bags and get your boarding pass when you return. Stupid not to use airport express on return to airport.

Accommodation cost in Hong Kong was a bit of a shock, after several stops in China. However, the standard of the facilities and service was excellent. True, it was a pretty steep walk up to the hotel from the bus station area - but the frequent 12A bus which stopped within a few yards of the YWCA was worth every cent of the $HK3-odd.
Shopping Tip: I missed the rough old markets of 20 years ago. All the market areas now seem to be 'sanitised' and are more like shops. But it still provides interest compared to home.

Good location but lots of construction noise

convenient, clean, nice room
6.7
Nice, clean place to stay. Lots of street construction so was dirty just outside and loud. We paid for speedy dry cleaning which was a fortune and it came way late. No offer to compensate. Charged for everything--internet, water...

Location near Central and opposite zoo

i have stayed here before and regard it as excellent value for money. the rooms are large and comfortable and have good tv service. the hotel is located a few minutes walk downhill to central. don't try walking back though unless you are a fitness freak! the one small quibble is there is no wifi in the rooms and internet is only available in the lobby and the charge is fairly steep. neverthesless, i expect to use it again in the future.
Simon H. Couples United Kingdom, October 2, 2011

Modern, good size room, bath and a comfy bed

All good really, easy and efficient. Very reasonable but doesn't include internet, which is HKD100. Gym/pool are nice and quiet in the day.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Walk down towards the tram for some nice old hk buildings, then go into hk park for a bit of space to admire the man-made monoliths...
