Lobby was really nice but rooms were extremely old.
Like many streets in Hong Kong Pratt St. is a small side street. I took the train from the airport to Kowloon then a bus which let me off a block away...easy to find. The location is why I booked this hotel, I needed to be near another hotel that was 3 times the price but I did not want to pay that much. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room carpet was quite dirty and I could not get the window open to get a little fresh air. Although the room was small I was traveling alone and it was enough. Perfectly average experience but if you expect an exceptionally clean room, move on. I would stay there again but would not go out of my way to stay there again.
Excellent location and good name made me choose this hotel during my recent visit to Hong Kong. But I was completely disappointed! I travel a lot, here in USA and overseas and I have stayed at many hotels of all class and value. But this particular hotel was absolutely way below par in comfort and services provided, including no free WiFi and cold customer service. Fundamentally, a traveler needs a good bed at night, among other things during a stay at any hotel. But the mattress at this hotel was so horrible that I actually felt the spring in my back all night. When I mentioned this to the front desk and asked to be given a different room, I was told that they can't do it as all their rooms have the same kind of mattress. Bottom line, I was stuck with them for two nights in a horrible mattress. What a 4 star experience! Here is another fact: I stayed at Butterfly on the Pratt which is right across the street form this hotel during the same visit but only a week before and that was an amazing experience. Not only the hotel charged $50 less per night, but they even provided free WiFi in the room and all around hotel. the rooms were very nice, spacious and mattress was absolutely comfortable. Fellow travelers: STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL!!!
Very friendly, convenient location and comfortable,
Better than a business hotel for comfort, but overall a pretty average experience. Nothing really negative to say about the hotel, but it doesn't really stand out either. Probably the best thing about the hotel is the location, which is a short 5 minute walk to the nearest MTR station. It is also near a number of bars, if you're into that sort of thing.
City bus A21 from airport takes you within 1/2 block to the hotel. The staff was very friendly, the room modern, clean and quiet. Crisp white linen on the twin beds made my stay very comfortable. Would stay there again and recommend to my friends.
almost things are good
My mom and I stayed at the Guangdong Hotel (18 Prat Ave) in HK for a night. Location is excellent. It is very close to the Hung Hom Train Station, and the hotel provides bus service to HK airport. The bus is cheaper than the airport express train. There are a lot of local stores and restaurants nearby. It is ideal for anyone going through HK as an intermediate stop. Hotel staff were very friendly, although there was no bell boy to help you with luggage. Rooms were small, but considering that's Tsim Sha Tsui, the most crowded area in HK, room size is decent for the price & location. But furnitures & amenities in the rooms were quite old style and not well maintained. Overall, it is convinient, just don't expect anything fancy.
You should have an option of mentioning king/queen size. I got twin beds though I specially asked for a single bed. I was informed by the front desk that I did not mention that to [...](as if I had the option)
go out for sight seeing most of the day. There is no music or radio. fair compared to my past trips
location is close to sim sha tsui metro station in the heart of sim sha tsui . By subway you are just one stop away from main island centre where the financial district is located. You are close of Natan street, Victoria park and the direct surrounding of the hotel has all the shops, restaurants and bars you need. You probably might be around all time and Guandong is a clean, friendly no nonsense hotel that offers a quite and comfortable sleep.
good, sleep only
Pros: Hotel was clean and very decent. Location was good. Easy walk to Nathan Rd and Harbor area. Some cons: overcharge for simple services that shoulde be free. Example: I paid $40 Hong Kong Dollars ("HKD") for one phone call to Shenzhen, China. They also charged me $20 HKD for 15 min of interenet at their "Business Center", and another $20 to print 2 black and white pages there. Bed was very uncomfortable and room was slightly loud--I'm not sure if it was fan/air or otherwise. I had stayed one previous night within walking distance--at "The Kowloon Hotel" (http://www.harbour-plaza.com/en/reservations_roomsrates.asp?rsvn_lang=EN ). I'd say room was comprable, though mattress was more comfortable at Kowloon Hotel. Also I didn't have need for internet or print services at Kowloon hotel so I'm not sure how that compares.
Hotel street location is next to a lot of bars and local chinese low priced restaurants and also other cuisines are available. Guests in the hotel are mainly chinese people from the mainland. You can hear them talking when you are in your bed. The rooms are not really soundproof. There is no outside noise from the street in the room. Great area for shopping and good starting point to visit Kowloon and the rest of hong kong Staffs attitude is not unfriendly.Most of them hardly understand English. That is why they appear to be indifferent and can not always answer your question directly. Overall it is a good location and value for money location.
First and foremost I must say that this is the worst hotel I've ever been in my life!!! The beds are super old and very hard and you could hear squeaky sounds from the bed while your laying around. I bet the beds are as old as a decade or more ago. Plus the beds aren't clean! There's bugs in it! I could feel a bunch of small particles moving around the back of my body while laying around the bed, I thought it was just the blood in my body trying to circulate so I ignored the feeling and after spending a night sleeping there my skin got extremely irritated and started to grow lots of red dots on certain areas of my body mainly on the elbows and thighs. I couldn't leave the hotel for another few days since I've booked it for 3 days so I can't waste that kind of money right? Last but not least, the walls in the rooms aren't sound proof. You could hear everything from the hallways and the rooms beside you so it's pretty annoying that way. There's more things I could say about this hotel but I'll leave it up to you to find out.
The hotel is in a good location only a few blocks from several metro enterances and between tsim sha shui and tsim sha shui east, so great for us. There are a lot of clubs in the area but as a family we were back to the hotel around 10 and there were no problems, it was quiet despite the clubs.
I only was able to stay one night out of a two-night stay but what I saw of the hotel was just fine. The room was clean, economical, well-appointed, and had a great shower and bath. (It had a lousy view but you can't have everything!) Air-conditioning worked fine and I just don't have anything to complain about at all. The front desk was friendly and efficient and I got my wake-up call right on the nose. A hotel staff member very kindly gave me a good suggestion about getting to the airport without using the very time-consuming airport shuttle bus which shuttles all over town before heading to the airport. I never ate anything at the hotel but this review process requires making a comment anyway so I'll give them a 5 but there's no way to put Not Applicable.
Overall it's a good hotel
Excellent location. Close to everywhere. Good price. Check-in is slow, but friendly. Room is not very clean. House keeper even left dirty towel on the night stand the first day we stayed there.
Superb location in Tsim Sha Tsui just off Nathan Road, walk in on Humphreys Lane off Nathan Road - within 200 meter of the Kowloon Mosque and Park, and you will see Prat (one T) Ave, although not in the nicest neighborhood (hookers operate nearby!); lots of restaurant to eat within 50 meters - including an excellent seafood restaurant on the 3rd floor at the first intersection towards Nathan Road super clean room, albeit small, but not unusual for Hong Kong. Several convenience stores nearby too! Hair dryer, and a socket to allow plugging in international plugs was in the desk drawer (nice!). However, wired Internet access was HKD 120 per day (24 hours)!!!!!! on their website, it said it was free. No wireless anywhere (asked front desk). Did not eat at any of their restaurants. Stayed on the 16th floor. Transportation - Take the A21 bus from the airport for HKD 33 per person and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) or Humphreys Ave (best option). On the way back to the airport have exact change in HKD cash and turn LEFT coming out of the hotel; walk about 100 yard to main road, and walk LEFT about 50 meters to cross the road and walk another 50 yards to the bus stop. I took the bus at 7:20AM and arrived at the HK international airport at 8:20AM - excellent! Bus drive was not helpful. Print a map of the area to see where you want to go when you get TO TST area. Local people all guided us wrong to get to the hotel and Prat Ave. A HK taxi will charge a minimum HKD 18 + 5 = 23 for two bags and two people.
