Clean in the middle of Wan Chai and a quick 5 minute walk to the convention center.
Don't expect anything extra, like staff friendliness, full set of towels in the room. They deliver exactly what is purchased, nothing more. Don't purchase the Executive Room. The included breakfast is worse than the general breakfast available to everyone. The Deluxe room is slightly better than the Superior room, but not really worth the price.
Paid to stay in executive room. Quite small but ok. Not much executive about it. Had executive lounge but between 5pm and 7pm they said you get snacks. All you got were and few peanuts and crisp and a few cakes. Coffee and tea all day and quite nice in morning with toast boiled eggs and croissants but not sure it was worth the extra money. Hotel in very lively area with many places to eat and drink. Staff were very helpful and when I gave a young man a tip at the end of my trip he said it was too much. I was amazed but made him take it. Good priced hotel but executive lounge should offer more in evening. The one we stayed on the way out gave free alcohol all evening.
When you book it please check the price is included breakfast.
If you are looking for a clean and cozy room within audible distance of raucous bars and live music, this is a good location to consider. If you are looking for a place with a Sauna, you won't find the one listed on their web site, as they have remodeled the exercise area which appears decent. If you want to take a hot shower at 7 a.m., this place also may be a poor choice, as I experienced dead cold water around this time on two occasions during 5 night stay. Despite these shortcomings, I would consider staying there again based on price and location.
Small room for the price but enjoyed the Handy cellphone, which makes up for the small room. Sweet area for single men just touring the area. Need better English speaking worker's for foreigners'. Overall experience on the positive side!!!
I would come here for the price and the size of room you get. One hiccup I had is the previous occupant used a coke can so the service lady came into my room while I was taking a nap to replace it. There's a decent gym, didn't have breakfast but there's a nice hk cafe across the street. The airport express shuttle helps as well.
There is a shuttle service you can get straight from the airport which is great. Be aware that you should not stay in this area if you get offended easily or are with small kids. It is nice and close to the MTR and places to eat. My main complaint in about the wifi. When I booked I was advised wifi was included. I checked into the hotel only to find out you can only use the wifi one device at a time. I was with another person and we both work online so this was not a good option for us as we had to take turns and ended up having to move important meetings around to compensate. The room is ok but has a weird set up and the shower had a soap dispenser which would not dispense soap. The light in the bathroom kept on going on then off. Not a bad stay but not a great stay either
My main reason to Honk Kong mostly business and pleasure Wharney is my best choice among many others,I have been staying there with every visit for the more than ten years,became friends with all staffs.
excellent location for the price paid and lots of local small restaurants, super market and stores nearby.
I am doing business trip alone so use budget hotel nomally and at this hotel enjoyed sauna too. Even though not the level of 5star hotel sauna, the bell boy helped me to open the sauna door and health amenity was good too. I could feel the grade of proud hotel enoughly, even though not so big hotel. I can say very good hotel is. Thks.
it is great except a bit small in size for the room. I like the location which is nearby metro, so it is very convenient.
1st: The hotel is under construction currently. It would be nice to have had this on the description when I booked it 2nd: We checked in late and got a room that had not been fully updated although it was still good for the value 3rd: The staff was extremely conscientious of the problems and moved us (++ for great service) 4th: After our move the room was much nicer and created a great jumping pad for the rest of our stay in Hong Kong 5th: It was about a 3 minute walk to the Wan Chai station, so we were able to move around the city and outlying islands super easy 6th: The food and drink around the hotel were cheap relative to the rest of the island. 7th: Overall - Highly recommended for the traveler on a hostel+ budget. I think the premium rooms would also be worth the cost given that we walked inside one of the nicer rooms.
Cool place in Wan Chai Hong Kong, two blocks away from Wan Chai Metro Station. Clean and comfortable room for the price. Can get all kind of food or bars by walk. I don't recommend this hotels for families or children if they are not prepared for some "Hong Kong" style in the neighborhood (hookers and girls looking for fun).
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.
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.
Location is good, close to good foods, lobby is look nice, rooms is ok, except the bathroom need to rebuild
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.
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.
I have stayed at this hotel a few times now. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly.
