Horrible on so many levels

Online the hotel seemed like any other '4 star' hotel in downtown Hong Kong, we knew the rooms would be small but we didnt know there would be mold, we didn't realize the toilet would only flush every third time and we didn't realize that the main light in the room was going to only work some of the time. We alertted guest services but it was satisfactory to them that they worked sometimes. The elevators do not have safety sensors and I nearly lost my arm one night. DO NOT PLUG YOUR COMPUTER IN TO THE INTERNET!!!! I payed for the service and as soon as I did mine went haywire and destroyed itself with a nasty virus. There were other minor annoyances as well but I feel like these are the overshadowing important things to know about staying at the Empire in Hong Kong Wan Chai. They were also very fussy about holding our bags when we checked in early and when we checked out early. '30 minutes maximum' they told us at the bell desk. This hotel felt like a 2 star... maximum.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

There was a lot to see on the streets, new and old. we walked to central almost everyday and the walk took us past some great achitecture and historic streets.

Convenient location

Great location, walking distance to Wan Chai subway, to Star Ferry, and other walking tours. Bustling part of the city. Exchange your money with dedicated exchanger (xcross street) and not hotel or bank. They have best rate. Hoi Tin (sp?) chinese restaurant down one block is excellent (nothing fancy, but great food). Indian restaurant also outstanding. Had the place to ourselves. As others have noted, a bit noisy from street noise or neighbors, but everything calms down at night and had no problem sleeping. Rooms are H.K. small, but well laid out. Safe is too small for laptop (bummer). 110v in bathroom. Shower was great, bathroom tiny. Breakfast was very good, worth the investment, but nothing extraordinary. Only downside, TV was only half functioning. Some kind of weird cable system and remote only channeled up and not down. Audio got weird with any subtitles which of course are on all the time. Had to wait 10 minutes for room, but it was very clean. Concierge stored our bags no problem. Not a 5-star hotel, but really a great value and outstanding location for the price.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to convention center on harbor at night (weekends only? that's when we were there) and watch the light show across the bay. Very spectacular with all the lights on the buildings and the boats moving about. Forget what time it shows. Perhaps it was 8pm? 9pm? Check it out.

Perfect location with great price

I was there just for travelling. This hotel is located in Wan Chai that is very convenient. It's close to convention center, metro station and bus stop.
