Smallest room I've ever seen. Absolutely not an enjoyable experience.

Hotel is three blocks away Wan Chai MTR Station who is two stations from Central Station. Clean, nice staff but we ask for a two-single bed room and they send us to a "semi-double" bed. I´ve never been in such small hotel room, i guess is part of the charm of Hong Kong. We only stay for a night. Crowded and nice neighborhood. Good food.

This is the second time I've stayed here. It's a little hard to find as the front isn't big and load on the street. It is Clean and functional and so long as you aren't out to impress anyone it will work fine for a business traveler willing to save money by not having the pomp and circumstance.

Cheap small room. In good location. Worth it if you're looking to save some cash.

The place is nice enough inside. The room was in the adjoining building, so I had to go up to the 7th floor, walk outside on roof of the other building, and walk down a few flights. Not too big of a problem. The issue was a the size of the room- it's SO small. I am 6' 2" tall and had to sleep in the fetal position all night since I was too tall to fit in the space where the bed is set. The bed itself was comfortable, though, and I usually sleep in this position (I survived). The thing that bugged me was you have to pay for water - 10 HKD, and then they added a 10% fee on top of that - which I thought was ridiculous. I paid almost 800HKD for this room, and it was not at all worth the money. Lucky only to stay one night. Better to stay at a hostel instead.

I read other reviews saying that this hotel's rooms were small - I thought no big deal. But, I wasn't expecting it to be as small as it was. The double bed touched 3 of the 4 walls of the room - thats how small it was. Thankfully me and my wife were trying out traveling 'super minimalist style' so we didn't have any luggage - I had a backpack and she had a purse - if we had 1 or 2 bigger luggage's it would have been much worse. The location was great. We were there to get visa's for China and from the hotel we could walk to the China visa office which was very convenient. We mainly stayed there because of the proximity to the China visa office - and also because we had some Orbucks to spend. I'm not sure if we would stay there again if we personally had to pay the full price. Would probably opt for somewhere on Kowloon.

Hotel is fine for a quick trip to the China visa office. The rooms were small, but many in Hong Kong are. I was just a bit concerned about safety since the entrance leading to the rooms was an open doorway accessible to anyone on the street.

I live on mainland China for most of the year and I travel Honk Kong to renew my visa once a year. This hotel is located about a 10-minute walk from the China visa office, a 5-minute walk from the metro station, and close enough by metro to all the major tourist locations. I happen to like to the Wanchai area because it’s a great way to experience how locals live and eat, and I like to stay away from tourist traps. The hotel room was small, but it was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

It was ok. Saw a huge roach on the room, but a slipper slap upside his head took care of that.

Room's tiny, no place to put luggage and bathroom very small. However location is magnificant, buses in front to all parts of HK island, MRT nearby, tons of food all around hotel. Rating would be higher if there's elevator to the room, however, had to take elevator in adjacent building then drag suitcase over rooftop and down flights of stairs to the room. Not a total turnoff but it did rain during stay and doing so on the rooftop can be slippery/dangerous.

Pros: -Great location -Clean -Friendly staff. Cons: -Tiny room by any standard (I'm from NYC), claustrophobic small. Can only walk on 1 side of the bed. -elevator does not service all parts of the hotel. expect to drag your bags up and down stairs. -they don't just take your credit card, the authorize a $500 deposit when you arrive. There's nothing in the room or minibar to justify this. -bathroom so small you can not sit on a toilet. You have to turn sideways. I'm serious. -2 porthole size windows in the bathroom. Partially open to a dirty back alley. -bathroom so small sign says close door as stream will set off fire detector -not enough room to even open your suitcase. forget about having 2 people in the room. -i like a hard mattress but this was like a board. even exhausted and jet lagged it was not a comfortable sleep. -felt unsafe is there was a fire or something trying to get out. the whole place was confusing and claustrophobic. Conclusion: Expect ridiculously small room, confusing layout, no lift. Stairs. Good price for $100US or less. Great location. Clean. Staff was friendly.

Good for location and clean room. there is no lift but still value for money

Good location, clean and priced right. I would really recommenr it.

My impression of the hotel was great, It's small ...yes, the location it's great and The shower is clean.

Had one night in Hong Kong. Wanted to stay in Wan Chai and this hotel was the cheapest around. However, the rooms are tiny, if functional. Lots of nightlife within walking distance, so that's about the only great thing about this hotel.
