Local eateries, shopping and street life lie just outside the door. Several MTR stations within walking distance connect guests to Kowloon attractions and beyond. Visit the hotel pool for a quiet swim before retiring to the hotel's comfortable accommodations.

Rooms

Small rooms & filthy carpets in urgent need of refurbishing, mainly full of asian tourists wouldn't bother stay here! The breakfast buffet is poor with no one to serve tea or coffee you have to serve yourself would not recommend this hotel at all!! Does have a reasonable indoor pool.

Great location, rooms & svc lacking

Fantastic location! Lobby is pretty but not enough seating if you're waiting for people. Staff is not too helpful especially if you don't speak Chinese. They seem to be ready to always say "no" to your requests. Now for the room, although it was relatively clean, they only straightened up and didn't vacuum. I stayed 5 nights and requested sheets to be changed, but could tell they were not. Walls were stained. Shower stall was not cleaned. Shampoo and bath foam were not replaced each day. So if you need more, hide your original stash! Hair dryer was only a hot air hose with no handle, so I had to wrap a face towel around it to be able to use it. TV is mounted high near the ceiling, so the only way to watch is lying in the bed. Pillows are extremely soft and requesting a 2nd one didn't help much. Nevertheless, if you just use the hotel as a pit stop, you can't beat the location for the price!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Internet is expensive but you can tap into their connection in the lobby for free! Just be discreet and don't plug in your cord otherwise you will get yelled at!

Speak up when expectations are not meant

I was excited to stay there until I went to my first assigned room. It was a smoke-free room filled with smoke, so they gave me another room. The second room had hair in the bathroom, and they assigned me to third room. This room was supposed to be newer in condition, but I believed it was overused already. I saw the fixture around ceiling lights in two different areas was about to fall off. I was certainly surprised and the noise level was rather great since I was closed to the elevators and the first room from the corridor to rest to the rooms on that floor. I also told the reception that the Wi-Fi was not so good, and they gave a individual router in my room and a technician came to my room to attempt to fix the ventilating system. Overall, I was not so please with the experience, but the reception staff was impeccable.

Good Hotel

Good hotel in a good location for eating out, shopping and taking the MTR. However, the hotel need improvement on their Wi-Fi access. We stayed in the 20th floor with little or no connection. So, I have to go down to the lobby to get a good connection. The bathroom plumbing is very slow to drain. Every time we take a shower or use the sink, it holds the water for a several minutes. Overall, I recommend it for family travelers with limited budget.
