A Quiet Oasis In Central

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 11, 2008

I booked this hotel through www.agoda.com as the BP International hotel was booked through March by Asia Rooms etc... I chose the Garden View because of it's location being near the Botanical Gardens and Hong Kong Park within the residential area of Hong Kong Island. However I didn't realize how far away it was from Central and the Star Ferry pier and because of that I spent each evening having to take taxis in order to get back to the hotel as there was no other means of getting there. Other than the location, the hotel does have it's good points.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms were kept clean and the shower massager was wonderful especially after a 14 hour flight and days of walking and sightseeing. There is also a mini bar which in comparison to the prices I've seen at other hotels, is very inexpensive. The room was small though fine for one person. I booked a standard room but was upgraded when I arrived to a superior room which basically just means you get a king instead of a queen size bed.

I did not have a view of the gardens but rather a view of the 12 apartment buildings surrounding the hotel right outside my window. I wasn't happy about it because I like having light from the windows in my room at night however due to the proximity of the buildings, (you could literally see tv within the windows of the apts.they were so close) I had to keep the curtains closed while sleeping. Despite their literature stating they provide airport shuttle service, they do not. They also do not provide mailing services for your postcards. These are minor details however most hotels do provide these services.

This hotel is good for backpackers, people who like the quiet or anyone who doesn't mind walking through to central. For myself, I would have rather been on the Kowloon side which I will do in the future. I will say though that no matter what hotel you book, for a great price use either www.asiarooms.com or www.agoda.com they are both easy and efficient.

Unique Quality: Right in between the botanical gardens and Hong Kong park.

Directions: 1 McDonnell Road in Central within walking distance of Soho.
