It will do

Located near Olympic center and MTR - but a $22 taxi will take you to Mong Kok which is more central for trains. Never made it to breakfast so can't comment on the food and I ate out every day. Air con unit quite rattly on higher settings but low worked well for me. Room clean and has a good shower. Could probably find better but when on a budget its a good hotel especially if you like walking. Splashed out on a taxi back to the airport which cost £225. If you get the A21 bus its less than a 10 min walk from the nearest bus stop.

Simple and quaint

Although the room was smaller than I am used to, I must say that it worked out great. The hotel is close to the Olympic MTR station which is so convenient. I personally did not try the restaurant on site but it is there. That is a convenient.

Good price and good hotel

This was my second times staying. It was very good and clean. I didn't give 5 stars becauce there is not much of the hanging closet. It has around 20 inches wide for you to hand your closthes. It has just enough to hand 2 small jackets. But the price is very reasonable so it compensates the small space. So don't bring too much to stay in this hotel.

Good for the price.

The hotel was very close to the MTR Line which made it easier to get around Kowloon and Hong Kong. Also it was near Olympic City and made shopping that much better.

Decent but Small

Overall a nice clean hotel in a good location. Since I travelled alone, the small room (and it is small) did not bother me. Most important was a good location, not too far from the shopping marks, and close to many places to eat. If you are over 5'8, the short bed size might cause a problem

good value for the money

Five minutes walk to metro, when it rained, did not even get wet. Then the train takes you in another five minutes or so to Hong Kong station. So, you almost stay on the island, at half or third the price. Actually this was the cheapest I found, and didn't regret it for a second. Room was reasonably large (although the bed was intended for someone less than 5'11''), nice view to the island (but, well, other less attractive buildings also). Some access to free internet in the cafe on the first floor, but they could do better here.

small rooms but cleaner than most others

u have to pay for internet but its only 30 HK dollars, the will convert your money in the hotel but its not a great exchange rate. we had breakfast at the cafe and it wasnt very good - street food is much cheaper and tastier! i stay at a LOT of hotels in Las Vegas and other tourist destinations where my hotel rooms are large and very clean, therefore i cannot give this hotel 5 stars, however, for a Hong Kong or Chinese hotel at this rate this is a very good value - i would stay here again.

Dorsett Kowloon

I thought overall that the Dorsett Kowloon was a good value for money. While the room and bathroom were small they were comfortable and clean. I did find the bed a bit short and my feet hung off the end. There is no chair for the desk so it is difficult to work unless you plan to do do so in bed. Location is fairly convenient to the Olympic Metro station and the Olympian 2 mall. If you plan to do most of your HK trip outside the hotel, this hotel should meet your needs admirably. Can't speak to the food, never ate at the restaurant.
