Clean sheets, comfy bed, spacious, free wifi

location: its a 5-10mins walk from wan chai mtr close to the wan chai street market and it is possible to walk to causeway bay or hop on the tram infront of the mtr room: big enough for two to three people. large king size bed, clean sheets soft pillow. it was big enough to open two luggages, ample space for shoes and a large LCD tv with cable tv, a desk and chair. there are smoking rooms or non smoking rooms. A safe and large wardrobe for hanging your clothes. toothbrush, shampoo soap, comb, shaving kit for men and a packet for women which contains items for women like shower cap, nail filer, cotton pad for makeup removal, ear cleaning cotton buds. complimentary 2 bottled of mineral water, bedroom slippers, enough towels for bathing, handtowels, face towels.. its all provided! handwash and tissue... just bring your clothes if you're staying here! bathroom comes with a bathtub too, the space between the bathtub and door may feel awkwardly small but its alright. overall: will definitely return again. staff are polite and friendly. patient. able to speak english, mandarin if you need.

Hotel does not live up to the impression presented on the internet

I was bitterly disappointed by the facilities and room presentation. Many areas of the hotel are either not air conditioned (e.g. lifts, corridors on floors, lift waiting area) or poorly air conditioned (e.g. gym which make exercise almost impossible). The floors in the rooms are not vacuum cleaned daily, nor is the tea/coffee making area cleaned. I paid for use of the Club Level - there was very little food, there was no white wine on two occasions, very disappointing. I do commend the manager Ethan, and Cassy who worked in the Club Level - both gave exceptional attention and care.

Clean, comfortable hotel in a great location

Stayed in wan chai many times, 2nd stay in this hotel. Location is good, 5-8 min walk from wan chai mtr. A lot of pubs in the vicinity but noise doesn't get to hotel room. Some might might the area slightly sleezy though. But no one disturbed my dad and I whenever we walk past. I think it's generally a safe location; as long you don't disturb others they won't bother you too.

Family getaway

The room very cold even turn off air conditioning. Need extra blanket still a bit cold. Required a fan heater, will turn off automatically after few minutes if you turn on level 2. As the hotel near a lot of bar, very noisy even I'm in level 17. Never stay in this hotel again.

Great Location

For those just visiting Hong Kong on vacation then this could be your hotel. Not necessarily the best option for those on business as the working area in the rooms is too small. The hotel is in the heart of Wan Chi so if you want to explore and enjoy the night life of Hong Kong you cannot get a better location and the hotel is a good price for Hong Kong.

Enjoyed staying at the hotel as I did during many previous visits to Hong Kong. It offers excellent value for money and for me, is in a great location. Fast speed internet made working in the room also easy
