Good value

I was overall very satisfied with my stay at the Wharney Guang Dong Hotel--it is located relatively centrally on Hong Kong Island, a short, roughly 5-minute, walk from Wan Chai MTR station, which itself is just two stops away from Central station. The area in direct proximity to the hotel features a number of good bars and restaurants, though it can seem a bit seedy at night.

Comfortable stay, courteous reception

I enjoyed my week at Wharney. Comfortable 18th flr room has lrg window. Hallway, and lobby are pleasant.. From H.K. we sailed by ferry to Lantoa Island, and returned by bus/subway. Visited IFC, HK''s tallest skyscraper; from Ozone took shots of spectacular city/ocean view. After busy day, I relaxed in room watching sports and news broadcast via various T.V. stations. Complimentary continental breakfast, afternoon tea and internet access are ++. Down side, many bars near hotel.

shower water controls after hard mattress

If you have a bad back and need a rock hard mattress then Wharney is the hotel for you. Also shower water temperature is warm but then when you want the shower experience it becomes scalding. Also no security as anyone can enter your floor.

Always good

This is my second time staying at The Wharney. I've stayed a total of 5 nights overall and am supremely pleased with the cleanliness, location, and customer service. There are many places to stay in the area, but this is the best value by far.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the airport train to Central and then transfer to the free shuttle, I think it's the B1 route, which drops you off at the front-door of the hotel.

The basics are good

But needs that special something to be a good hotel. Very little personal touch in service, but efficient nevertheless. No breakfast was included in the room rate, hence did not bother to see if they do serve some. McDonalds nearby was ok for two days. Lots of dining (and drinking) options all around.

Serviceable, but disappointing

Stayed in a twin room on 15th floor. The location in Wan Chai is good and bad. The hotel is close to the MTR station and is surrounded by bars and strip clubs. Lots of guay lo at night. The hotel is also a 10-15 min walk from the piers and the ferry to TST. It's also walkable to Times Square and the Sogo building in Causeway Bay if you can tolerate walking among tons of people along the entire way. The noise can get pretty bad on weekends from the drunken revelers, but we were always too tired to care. The room itself was clean, but the bathroom had piles of dust in one corner of the ceiling. The toilet was horrible at flushing - weak, slow to refill, noisy, and also difficult to flush. The shower was fine though. The entire room felt very old. We never felt comfortable in it and it always felt humid and had a slightly musty smell. The twin beds were rock hard. I did not get a single good night's rest and kept waking up due to pain in my back or hip or arm from laying on the hard surface. It was like sleeping on the floor. The bed was clean however. Free wi-fi in the room was convenient. Service was fine. They provide 2 complimentary bottles of water every day which was nice. The hotel is cheap considering its location, but it was not worth the savings to me. It may be if you are in your 20's or plan on passing out every night after partying. Otherwise, I would only advise using this hotel for short stays.
