Upgraded bigger room

Hotel sign is small that caused us bit hard to find. We got free upgrade to bigger room don't know whether related to my boyfriend's birthday on our check in day. Few guys look like bell boy standing at lobby without greeting or helping guests to handling luggage. Older building and hotel design, but it's still comfortable & big room. The most excited things is toilet shower head with massage function and powerful water jet! Handy phone provided for guests. There's free airport shutter bus stop in front of hotel entrance. Nearby covered by bars which suit to whom like to drink. It's about 10 ~ 15 mins to walk to MTR either Wan Chai or Admiralty station, the hotel located at the middle.

Value for money

It is a okay stay. The hotel is very value for money and alright for the amount paid. I just didn't like the walk back from wan chai station exit c as there is numerous pubs and it's very rowdy at night. The hotel has a very nice lobby but the rooms are not in very good condition as the control panels are falling apart. But overall for the price paid I am satisfied.

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.

Overnight stay

Value for money for the promotion I get! Only paid less less $90 for a 2 twin beds room. Near wan chai mtr. Met few police along the way. Near pubs. Woke up at amount 2am due to commotion downstairs near pubs. Saw a few police cars from the window of 19th floor. Otherwise, the hotel is safe and secure.

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.

Disappointed

No hot water to shower in the morning and the room was cold! Heater not working and the Aircondition is running even outside temperature at around 12 C in the morning. Not good and will not return
