Our stay there is very memorable and exceeded my expectations! The rooms are small but cozy.There is 711 and Cafe de Coral where there are plenty of food stuff to choose on. I was particularly impressed with their transportation hourly (?) service made available to their guests in going to MTR and shopping mall. There were no free wifi though. It is near Disneyland the very reason why we went to Hongkong. I recommeded it to my friends.
Things to bring and remember when going to Hongkong:
1. Bring adaptor/s
2. Be careful when riding the elevator particularly in the morning. It's like hell!
Stayed for 3 days, relaxing amid the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong way of life! Partly sponsored by the HKTDC (Hong Kong Trade Development Council). 5-10 minutes' walk to the nearest MTR station. About 30 minutes' walk to Central District. Small room as with other Hong Kong hotel but wise use of space. Friendly staff at the front desk and all can speak English. Has a laundry and ironing room with coin-operated machines. Reading room too!
Cable TV channels encompass a wide variety catering to different interests although limited channels but good enough for channel-surfer me.
Although situated in a relatively old part of town, the hotel is new and its facilities very clean.
Buffet breakfast offers indoor and outdoor seating but during peak periods, one should go very early . For outdoor seating, the sunlight could very well burn your skin when it's 9:00 a.m. or later.
There are many organic cafes around the area. Too bad I wasn't able to try one.
Free English newspaper every day. Safe to walk around even during late night. Walking distance to Lei Yuen Night Market (similar to Ladies Market in Mong Kok).
This is a well appointed well located MINI HOTEL, when a say mini is mini but you get what you pay and the hotel is clear, i think it is a good option in hong kong if you travel light and what you need is a convenient place to rest.
Everything you need for a nice stay is what you get but in a mini space.
This was an excellent hotel! Service was great. Staff attentive. Many amenities. The bent over backwards.
Every positive review I read was correct. We are American but there were not many Americans here. We wondered about that.
It's also more for business. We are tourists. Again, no problem. Location is great. Very walkable to many places.
Would stay here again anytime
Breakfast was great.
Staff was wonderful.
Location not that far from Central Station, if you know how to find your way and if you don't mind travelling on the longest escalator of Mid Valley, passing through SOHO.
Rooms are tiny.
We got the 20th floor but did not have the city view. Not that we mind, cos we've been out the whole day and night to really stay in the hotel.
The swimming pool has got a nice city view though.
The free shuttle service to Central or Admiraly Station is really heplpful
The bus station just outside the hotel helps a lot too.
There is a mosque (Jamia Mosque) to the right of the hotel. Just turn right of the hotel, walk a couple of meters away and you'll find Mosque Street. Go down Mosque Street and on the right will be the escalator going down to Soho and Central. Go down the escalator and a few meters away you wil find the Jamia Mosque.
Great view from the pool.
Nice little boutique hotel - quirky decor
In a wonderful location - close to transport, shops, retsaurants
Great apartment with fabulous views of Hong Kong and Kowloon
I know how hard it is to find a place to stay in Hong Kong, especially while you are abroad, so I have put up this post to help those on the prowl.
My husband and I stayed in a great apartment in Discovery Bay and it's worth while sharing. The apartment is in the one of the best locations in Discovery Bay, called Cherish court. It's right on the waterfront with a spectacular and uninterrupted view of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. You also have a clear view of Disneyland's daily firework display! As for the apartment, it's so light and airy, fully functional, nicely decorated and it's a decent size.
Our experience at Cherish Court was so enjoyable that we took out a lease a couple of floors up in the same building. Prior to our stay in Cherish court we stayed in Causeway bay, we were so disappointed when we saw our tiny apartment plus the pics on the website didn't look anything like the actual room. If anything, it's the opposite with Cherish court - the pics don't do it justice. I have attached some pics of the apartment, this is exactly what the place looks like inside but the view has to be seen to be believed. Before we moved to Hong Kong I spent 2 weeks looking for an apartment, I think Cherish court is well priced and true value for money.

We were booked in a non-harbour view room with a queen-size bed. The room had a good view of the al freso restaurant, playground and the nearby Langham Hotel. I definitely recommend this hotel to any budget traveller since it is walking distance via the subway from the Tsim Sha Tsui and East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR stations. It is also very near the Star Ferry Pier, Harbour City Mall and Harbour Front where you will find the Avenue of Stars and witness the Symphony of Lights. It is also just across the HKG Science Museum and the Clock Tower.
Definitely for budget travelers. The room has a mini-ref, lcd tv, thermos for hot water, electric kettle, hot and cold shower, bath tub, mini-safe for valuables and free fruits, tea, coffee. It has mini cafe at the 1st floor but food is cheaper outside just like in any hotels. Check in-out is 24 hours. Attractions are walking distance from the hotel.
It was a pleasant stay when I stayed there for three nights from august 9th till august 12th this year. With the price we paid the room is actually not that small. It has a living room, a bathroom and a bedroom. It's got a great city view. A very good location, close to the Central area, walking distance to the Lan Kui Fang bar street and Soho. It's an old hotel so everything feels a bit old，but all in good conditions. Has everything you'll need. We didn't even use the living very much which was a waste but it's nice to have a living room anyways. The staff were very helpful and friendly but we didn't really bother them too much either.
Disadvantages: if you want to charge your phone and your charger has two spikes, you can only plug it in in the bathroom beside the sink; so if there are two people want to charge at the same time it's a little troublesome, or you can get an adapter.
Another is the room key is not a card it's a actually key with a big room number tag on it. But that's like nothing right?
The room rate was about 1000HK dollars per night.
Good value. Clean rooms and very good location.
One should not expect to see the harbour from the room, but the hotel is centrally located on Hong Kong Island. It is just a few minutes walk to a "24 hour"-nightlife. The hotel is also close to public transportation to Hong Kongs main attractions and just a few stops from the ferry terminal to Macau. The nightly laser show can be watched in front of the convention centre, just a few minutes walk from the hotel.
It probably not Hong Kongs best dining and shopping area, but it is possible to buy breasfast and dinner on the nearby pubs and easy to reach other parts of Hong Kong with the metro or buses (or on foot if you want some extra excersise).
The hotel does not have any fittness facility, but there is a training studio nearby. In 2011 a hotel should offer free in-room internet access. That was not the case here. In addition the internet connection was very slow.
Walking distance to Wanchai nightlife.
Short walk to the convention centre which is a great place to watch the nightly laser show.
1. Staff are friendly they tell us where the best place to go
2. Room are small but clean & tidy
3. Strategic place were it's just 5minutes walk from Mongkok MRT Station
4. During night the street can be a lil' quiet
1. View are not too good as it's located in between old building
I did like this Hotel in Mui Wo on Lantau Island. It is quiet and a few minute walk to the ferry to get to central. It is older and has no elevator. But does have a pool and morning buffet. The steam room is very new but the rooms need updating for sure. Staff was excellent.
It is on the beach. A joy to walk around with no noise and such just wind and surf. I do enjoy the locals around the hotel and the services such as a number of good resturants.
I stayed for 1 week at the NovoHotel in the Wan Chai district of Hong Kong Island.
The hotel was very good but was for business people more than tourists.
Its only a short block away from the Causeway part of town (the youth area).
The hotel is in a faily good part of town, if you turn left as you walk out of the hotel you can walk to Causeway area, but if you turn right towards the city centre (which is to far to walk into from the hotel), you get a few dodgie places offering woman and other things at night.
The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the Wan Chai metro station, if you turn right out hotel door you will reach the station within about 10 mins. Make sure that you pick the right exit at the Wan Chai station otherwise you could be a mile away and in the wrong directiuon from the hotel.
The Novohotel has a gym and an outdoor swimming pool.
The outdoor swimming is a good sized pool and you swim undeneath the skyscapers of Hong Kong Island.
I travelled to Hong Kong in Octocber 2010, I had very warm nights as I swam in the out door pool.
Ice House is a small but good hostel located in "Ice House Street" on Wan Chai island, south of Hong Kong. I stayed there 2 nights when on a business trip.
The hotel is located in the major shopping district which is located a few meters down the hill it is built upon. It is clearly visible from the street and has about 13 stories. Each story has several rooms, but no long corridors. The corridors are closed by fireproof doors, and there are 2 elevators in the building along with a staircase.
The rooms (I had a medium sized studio) have a convenient bed, bathroom with view on the living room (can be closed by curtains for privacy), desk with free internet connection, a small kitchen area and television. The surrounding walls don't absorb much noise which can be a nuisance if you have noisy neighbours. The streetside is well isolated though although there is not much traffic in Ice House street.
The internet connection speed is fast and has a cable supplied. Electricity is available at several wallsockets and also has a connector socket for western equipment. Water is available but is advised not to drink. Heating water for the shower or sink can take some time (2 to 10 minutes) and at some times of the day is out of stock so you have to wait for new water. I believe this is the case in more hostels in HK.
The hotel service is at the lobby near the small entrance area where several desks are located along with the management. There is no large waiting area which can be trouble though if you carry much luggage or come with a large group. Checking in and out goes quickly, and the payment goes in advance. You leave your name and number, pay the money and you receive the room key which has a number on it.
All in all it has what a hostel needs including some comfort, and the prices seem reasonable: 1540 HKD for 3 days of which 2 nights
- free internet
- cleaning service is flexible during the day if you request this
- quiet location in the street
- centrally located near the outgoing area and shopping area in Wan Chai
Room was 'standard' room. It was roomy, clean, and modern. Appreciated room amenities included satellite TV and free internet.
The staff was very helpful in proividing information about places in the area. Although, we prefer not to have housekeeping in our room on a daily basis, so we put out the do-not-disturbe sign. They contacted us 3 times that day about if we needed room clean, the last time being a hotel official and security guard came to our do to a "housekeeping / security check". It was a little odd, so we just let them clean room daily from there on out.
Free in room internet.
Good location, very close to MTR subway and bus stops.
