• great location. - near mtr, shopping areas, malls, park, convinience stores, tourist spots. • although the space is really small, you can count on the cleanliness and mr.john is very accomodating. we arrived much much earlier than the check in time, yet he already accomodated us, and willingly answers our queries and helps us even at late hours. • clean toilet
Excellent location, MRT station just next to the building. Room is small, but it's ok for us because we were out the whole day and only back for shower and sleep. One of the staff name Jessie from Indonesia, she is providing very good service and very helpful.
EXCELLENT value for money, but don't bring a date.”
Good: Everything you need, and very good service. Jessie is amazing. She happily let me store my luggage at the desk when I needed to make a business run on my last day there, and she was a great communicator. The hotel also received a business document for me while I was there and held it at the desk for me. I was very happy with the service and got the sense that everything was quite safe, especially because of the 24/7 camera surveillance and the safe in the room. Bad: While Gold Sparrow itself is clean and smells fine, the building itself is dirty and smells bad—if you're traveling with a woman, she won't be impressed. The room is extremely small. But hey, at least you're in Hong Kong!
Good location and cheap”
Near harbor and cheap. But very very hard to find. The name of the building is Mirador Mansion. The hotel is a flat in this building. In the building are many similar hotels. Sometimes you have to wait a very long time for the lift. The hotel has no reception. You have to call the receptionist. A strange kind of a hotel. But very cheap!
Once you have a room it's fine”
No front desk, just a scribbled note to call Me John. Phone broken so couldn't call. If anyone else has this issue walk around the 11th floor further and use the Mulberry hotel phone. Completely disorganised at check in. They'd given our room away to a fella wanting to stay an extra night so moved us downstairs to a not so nice place on the 5th floor and asked us to move into our room the next day. Next day our room wasn't ready so had to wait until 1pm to actually check into our room. Nice but clueless staff, they looked incredibly stressed. Once in the room it was fine, clean etc. Small but is Hong Kong. Water cooler outside and fridge in room.
Not recommended at all. Owner was very rude on phone and lady at hotel also was rude. ”
I made booking for 21-22 march, so that after 6 hours of flight and 45 mins of taxi i can have a place to rest,have some sleep and a bath. I informed the owner or responsible via agoda i will arrive late, he never replied. I called on the number he gave which was his number, he was very rude. Now when i went to the hotel which seems like a brothel, the lady slammed the door in my face even though i made the booking and paid for the room from march 21 13:30 to march 22 11:30. Sincerely i do not reccommend people to go there. Imagine reaching in hong kong at 06:00 in the morning, u reach the hotel around 07:00 and u think you can have some 4 hours rest and a shower but these money minded people act as animals. They are money minded people, take your money, rent it to other people when you arrive late and let u remain on streets.
The hostel room is too small which is not a problem. But the fact that it is too small, they cannot even mantain cleanliness. I thought that some of the reviews are not true, but based on experience, there are strands of hair in the bed, the bowl has pee on it, its very dusty, very untidy , worst place ever! In short, the room is very very dirty. They do not clean the room on a daily basis including throwing our trash for the whole day. The staff is rude, we requested to clean our room on our first day, but she’s insiting that she already clean it. So that’s how clean means to them: unchanged pillow cases, bed sheet, comforter, dirty comfort room with pee on the bowl. Not recommended for travellers. Even if we will just consume our time outside of the hostel, it is still important that when we got hom, our room to rest is clean.
This place is super awful, the room is full of cockroaches, it is running on the bed!”
At 1st when i reach around 2.30pm to check in, they said my room is not ready and ask me to wait till 7pm! i was mad! I said the check in hour is 2pm onwards, and here i am, my room should be ready by now, and even you need time, it shouldn't be 7pm?! then suddenly, they get a room for me, so i check in to my room ,there's COCKROACHES everywhere, even on the BED! so i panic, and complained to AGODA, luckily they change me another room. (I actually wanted to cancel this hotel but this room is not free cancellation) so i need to deal with those shits! The another room is another nightmare, still cockroaches but at least not on the bed, and there's a window (finally as promised in my booking), BUT when i opened my window, OUTSIDE IS AN EMPTY PLACE WHERE THEY THROW ALL THE RUBBISHES (i had sent the videos to agoda) and the aircon is just on top on this window (which means the air cond are getting air from rubbishes! NIGHTMARE, WORST HOTEL EVER!
Affordable but Not impressive”
We stayed in the Master Room for 3 nights. No reception. You need the call the Attendance using the service phone in the front door. The helper was nice when we checked in and even said “call me if you need anything” On our 2nd day, we saw a small cockroach and had to call the helper to provide us with a new Bed Sheet. She refused and said she can’t as the sheet is good for the whole stay. She even told us that her boss will get mad. Antother callout was the bathroom, theres a foul smell coming out and it stinks. There were also mosquitoes and we had a hard time sleeping. Stay here if you want an affordable place to stay. Not recommended. Worst i’ve stayed in my travel history
If you’re just looking for a place to sleep at night, location of this hotel is so perfect.”
Its located in an old commercial/residential building in the middle of tsim sha tsui, the indonesian lady staff is very nice and helpful amongst everything, our stay was comfortable and easy, the room is small but adequate with just what we need.
Very disappointed as the staff informed us that we have not pay for our hotel booking and we are required to make payment upon our check in. We have make payment via cash and no receipt was given to us. After our stay, we later found out that our credit card was charged. Our stay was double charged. Emailed and called the property several times, but no reply...
Unexpectedly small room for 3 persons”
The room is super small which took me some time to accept its size. I stayed in another hong kong budget hotel before for twin room but is even bigger than this. Booked for 3 nights during labour day period which the price is too much for the quality. Cleanliness is still acceptable and the host did clean up the room after 2 nights of stay. The host mr john is an indian guy and is quite nice to us. Drinking water is provided so it is a plus point for this hotel. There is an elevator near the entrance in front of tsim sha tsui station exit D2 to get to floor 11 to skip the long queue of another elevator near the entrance in front of nathan road.
Depends on your priorities”
If price is your top priority then this is a good value compared to others in its bracket. But be prepared for a tiny bed in a pint-sized windowless room with poor ventilation and a bathroom so small you have to sit sideways on the toilet to do your business or shower. If it feels like you're sleeping in a linen closet it's because you are (it's even marked as such on the room's door). The manager is making an effort and keeps the premises as clean as possible. He checked me in early without flinching, and a minor issue was resolved without incident. Kudos for having a communal iron and microwave.
Best location and with a very efficient and super kind staff.”
It has a great location. Very Near the MTR, malls, food stalls, restaurants, banks. All that you may need. The service is awesome. Ms.Jessie the person who takes care the hotel was very nice, easy to approach, understand and speak english well. Very efficient even we arrived at late night, she welcome us warmly. The space is small good for solo, couple travellers and 3-4 family in one room. But if you need to book for more than 4pax you may call them directly or email them and request for the rooms that you may need. The very good thing about this place is really the service they give. Upon check out, they also allow us to leave our luggage while roaming in the city. We felt safe because of Ms.Jessie. Regards to the owner also Mr.Jerry who also gives us a warm smile as always. Mabuhay!!!
Staff was helpful”
The lady that checked me and helped with my room was amazing... the room was... ok ;)
Grate location & Value for Money”
I Stayed two days during holiday in April-May-2018 in Gold Sparrow Hotel, it is actually hostel and not hotel. The rooms are very small. If you need only place to sleep it may be very good option. The property is located in heart of the city. Staff is very good and cooperative. They provide Free Water and all doors are having access control by card. The Property is recently renovated and looks very clean. All Major attractions are walkable distance, you can get K2 Free Shuttle bus from the Kowloon Airport express station and get down at Peninsula Hotels & Tower, from there it is may be 200 Meter away the property is. It is in very big building so hotel name is not mentioned in the building. you need to search the property by its building name, no to the floor-11 and then look for the property name.
great location, accomodating staff, smooth check in and check out”
all was ok except for the safety deposit box which is not working and no action was done., john let us leave our luggages after check out and picked it up at 4pm., water dispenser and a microwave oven is a plus.,
Clean, very good location, staff very helpful”
The staff so helpful ever I checked in so late on that night. Location is perfect, A21 Airport bus stop just opposite the road. Although room is small, but very clean, tooth brush, hair dryer, slipers n drink water all in. Value for money! 👍👍👍
Amazing Staff ”
Simple, clean, safe, and comfortable for sleep. If you like to travel and save up, this is the BEST PLACE to go. Big thanks to Mr. John. and if i may suggest, provide more power outlets for guest to use. The location was awsome. To whom ever read this comment, book your room here and enjoy the city of Hong Kong.
Best location, Value for the price”
For the price we paid, I set my mind to not really expect anything much. I’ve also read how small the rooms are in HK. The room is indeed small, as well as the bathroom. We had to be creative to be able to fully lay open our luggage. I think the toilet is faced wrong in the room that we stayed in. There’s no way you can properly and comfortably sit down on it. When I tried to sit for the first time, my knees were already pressed on the wall (I’m only 5’2) I had to sit diagonally on it so I was facing the broader side of the room. Well besides the toilet, everything else is what it should be for the price range. The bed is to my taste, not too soft nor too hard. I loved that the blanket was a comforter and not some cloth not thick enough to be categorized as a blanket. I wish the pillow was thicker, but that’s my preference. The room got so cold even if our AC was already at the lowest setting, I was really glad that the inn provided a comforter. There was also a fan if you find the AC too much. Toothbrush and towels are provided. The TV had local channels only. A small safe and personal fridge is situated under the bedside table. Another thing I’m grateful for is the free purified water, we saved a lot by refilling our bottles! A microwave is also available outside the room at the end of the corridor (the water dispenser sits beside it). There’s no individual hair dryer and clothes steam iron in the room, but you can borrow one and just return it immediately after so others can use it too. In summary, the basic stuff that a traveller needs were provided and we slept good. That’s what we expected and it was met.
