Bridal Tea House Hotel - Gillies Avenue South3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I chose this hotel for proximity to PolyU and it is great if you want to be fairly central and immerse yourself in the local population. The rooms are definitely small, but maybe that is the point, every square meter of Hong Kong is massively expensive. Rooms are well thought out in terms of design, making use of every inch of space a bit like a caravan. I have found everybody friendly and accommodating. I took breakfast out as inhouse consists of cans of milk coffee and hard scones. Restaurants in close vicinity are local Asian, however a short walk to Whampoa Gardens reveals a multitude of upmarket choices.
Book a room for 3 occupants - 1 double bed & 1 single bed in a room (refer to photos). Check-in was smooth but the lady at the reception is not polite. We arrived early but can only check-in after 2pm. The hotel requested HKD500 deposits. If pay by cash, it will be refundable upon check-out (if everything at room in order). But if pay by Credit Card, it will "locked and release" only after TWO months! We feel that this is a very bad system and unfair. So, we ended up paying cash. Room : The room is the smallest room that I ever experienced from my few stays in Hong Kong. It is impossible for 3 of us to open up our luggage together at the same time..... we have to take turns as the space is very small. The daily mineral water bottles and toiletries set were only TWO sets instead of THREE sets as the room is for 3 persons. Management should pay attention to this as we are paying the room for 3 pax rate and not double-bed room rate. Wifi speed in the room is good... they deserve this compliment. There is no iron in the room and we didn't try to ask if they can lend any. Location: It is only around 5 minutes walk to the nearest MTR Station - Ho Man Tin, exit B2. There's another MTR station - Whampoa station which is about 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel. There are many local restaurants to choose from and local market around the area. There are also herbs shops and convenient shops within walking distances. If looking for more expensive restaurants and shopping area, there are a few nearby the Whampoa Station - Whampoa Wonderful World. We noticed that there are many 'coffin carriage cars' moving around the area. Distance to the HKIA Terminal 2 is around 35 minutes only (we left early morning before 6am). Staff: The lady receptionist was not friendly and not helpful. We requested to book a taxi to airport the day before we departed. However, she told us that no need as there are taxis standing by around the hotel. However, the morning the check-out, we informed the guy receptionist that we need a taxi. He told us that we have to inform earlier (at least half hour) so that he can call for a taxi and we don't have to wait long. The guy receptionist (normally late at night till early morning) was helpful. Security guard at night wasn't quite responsive as there's a time the automatic door is not responding. But he didn't bother to help. The guy receptionist had to walk out from his desk to help us. Overall, I will definitely not recommend this hotel if you have a better budget. The only reason I would recommend is that the location is near MTR and experience the locals lifestyle.
Location is bad, it's dirty and far from any public transportation. Hotel staff is unfriendly but that you can overcome if you don't talk to them. Apart from bad location, the hotel room is ok. It's clean and size is fine. You get what you pay for. So only bad location is real concern.
the bed is ver y comfy! the room doesn't have any room for the bags but this is hong kong so I guess it's normal. The breakfast it's very poor but ok for 2 days. staff isn't very nice, don't understand english that well and it's like they are doing a favor to you. But, it was ok for two days... location very central and near subway.
If you have a good deal, this is a nice hotel with good location, thanks to two nearby subway stations opened in October 2016. The hotel is very clean, located in a popular district of Kowloon. If you don't search a touristic quarter, this is the place with many local eating points, shops and daily markets. I had a nice package with breakfast & afternoon tea. Room had bathroom facilities and mineral water bottles changed everyday. A good room with double bed - little but OK by Hong Kong standards - for a single, with TV, Wi-Fi, Air-condition and refrigerator. The best was a free mobile phone to use all over your stay. This is great to use internet to find your way in the city and would be useful also for their promotional packages to buy tickets for sightseeing. The only complaint is about TV which had only local channels in Chinese. I took the bus E23 directly from the airport which pass in front of the hotel and let you just a few walks in the nearby Wuhu street. There is a bakery, grocery and a supermarket just a few walks in Gillies road. For burger lovers, you have two 7/24 McDonald's in about ten minutes walk. With recently opened Ho Man Tin subway station you're just in one station to Nathan Road and it's markets! Reception is OK even though their English is not very useful. In my case they were helpful even though I had no specific problem. I found the place safe and crowded even at midnight. You have also number of buses (N° 5 for example) which goes directly to Star ferry station and harbor.
The room is very clean with all the toiletries you need. Clean towel and bedsheets. Strong wi fi connection. Near bus stop stations. Walking distance to restaurants especially if you like to eat authentic chinese foods. We enjoyed our stay.
Budget hotel with the smallest rooms but have all the necessary stuff except Wi-Fi in Room (the most basic need in Hong Kong)... Wi-Fi is available only at lobby. Hung Hom station is so far from this place and you need to walk for at least 1 km. There is no nearby restaurant's which can serve some good quality food to you. Don't book for 2 people if you are not a couple. You can't fit in the room.
The location is not that bad as you can easily get here by taking airport bus A21 or A22. Check in and Check out was very smooth thanks to friendly receptionist with very fluent English. Housekeeping staff were also very friendly. The room is clean and wifi works really well in the room (free), unlike the other Bridal Tea House hotel on Winslow street where I could see other people's hair on my bed and the wifi was not available in rooms (stayed in August 2013). The room is quite small like other typical budget hotels in Hong Kong, but is worth of money if you do not want to pay a lot for your accommodation.
I think Hongkong problem is always about space size. If you want to have a spacious hotel, then you hv to pay more for your staying. Bridal tea house has tiny soze room but modern minimalist designed. I admitted it was a very tiny room, but everything is good amd comfort for us. They provide wifi in the lobby, soap and shampoo, hair dryer, tea everyday. They cleaned the room (my room was 2304), changed bedsheet & towels (big and small towel for 2 persons). Personally, i love this hotel... Better than any hostel for sure! Best location, hunghom, near mtr hunghom station just accross the road, best price, and the receptionist quite good and he even explained the informations (road and attractive places) to us 😊
I've been in many hotels in a lot of countries, but this was a first: the receptionist calls the room at 11:15 a.m. menacing that if you don't leave at noon, you have to pay an extra 100 HKD. I tried to explain that I was on a meeting the night before and only arrived after 1 a. m., but she's the kind that only knows a few words in english and just keeps repeating the warning. Besides that, the room (nr. 601, August 2nd 2015) was ok. Strangely shaped, long but thin. The double bed is more like a 1 1/2 size, there' a sofa at the other end to watch the tv - with only local channels - mounted on the side wall. The wifi signal in the room was not so strong, and the toilet is tiny but indeed had a good assortment of toiletries. I didn't see any kettle, tea bags or bottled water. The view is to one of those abandoned construction sites that stay like that for several years. Overall, the price is cheap but I'd probably recommend staying at the other one on Winslow Street, at least it's located near the MTR station and the receptionists are nicer!
