room is small but new and clean. I checked in for one night stay with only a backpack hence the small space did not affect me too much. nothing much to shout about, but no complaints for the good walking (no slope) distance to train station and HK island places of interest.

great place but small”

i loved the location of the hotel, its very unassuming. its in the middle of the city, i was able to take the train from the airport to the city center and then walk about 10-15 mins to the hotel. the front desk personnel are very nice, accommodating, great english explained everything that i needed and answered all the questions that i had for them. Breakfast was provided and even though i missed it they called up and asked if i wanted it at a different time instead, which i appreciated and accepted. the room is very small, but very clean. if you were staying there for 2 days it would be acceptable if you are going to do a longer stay i would go somewhere else. defiantly a place for solo travelers.

Everything was good except that the desk staff were insistent that we had to pay an extra charge of $HK880 to check in early - at about 10.00am, when they has serviced rooms ready. This extra charge was not mentioned when they previously confirmed receipt of our request for early check in, if possible

The staff takes time to get to know each guest. They're very accommodating and friendly. They even called us uo when we got back to the Philippines when they thought we had lost a passport. They were also very helpful in giving directions and tips. The rooms we're cleaned daily and breakfast was served in the room every morning. The rooms had their own handy phones. The rooms we're extremely small even for a single traveller.

Great location for restaurants, transport and shopping. The staff were really really helpful. Ordered my coffee before I actually got comfortable in our room . The rooms are very small but ok for a few days. Very clean and compact. Well worth trying out. Breakfast is only continental and is sent to your room. I would have like a roof top garden to sit in but they don't have an outside area to go to.

The staff could not have been nicer. Although it's a family hotel, they were very kind and accepting of a male couple. The rooms are so small though they do make the best possible use of the space. We skipped the free breakfast; so many places to eat in the area and it would just be too depressing to eat in such a small room. Otherwise a lovely place.

The staff were very attentive, the location was good, the rooms were nice (but small)

I flew in from Vancouver and got to the hotel at 8 am and my room wasn't ready, Alex was very attentive and helpful. I left my bags at the reception and explored Hong Kong. After checking in the room had just been renovated, it was small but clean and well laid out, the breakfast was basic )hardboiled egg, croissant, coffee, juice), although free so that was nice. I stayed for two days and traveled to Bali and I had another 3 days in Hong Kong and I booked at the SoHotel again. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family for a nice place to stay and for the value.
