Check in was fine. Their english wasn't the best but it was enough. The check in lobby is on the second floor so dragging luggage up there and then to the room is a little annoying. They have a lot of bellhops that almost seem overly eager to help though. The elevators are a little slow but they do go from ground up to the rooms. Mind your step sometimes they don't stop quite level with the floor.
The rooms are comfortable, but rather old. Like 1992 old. Carpet was surprisingly clean, but I still used the complimentary slippers. Air conditioning a little under powered but it's enough. They had complimentary water which is nice. The minibar fridge is big enough to cram in other stuff around their mini bar "amenities"
Bathrooms are clean enough, but also very dated. There's a grille at the bottom of the bathroom door with 1 inch slats so it felt like I was doing my business in the room... Toilet was hard to flush in my room, figured out that if you pump the handle 3 times it works well.
Location was not the greatest. About 1.5 km walk to MTR Mong Kok station. Normally not a big deal but when it's 34°C and 100% humidity its annoying (walk takes about 20 minutes). The proximity to the Mong Kok markets is great. You can shop, then go back and drop stuff off. There are a few busses out front, but unless they go exactly where your destination is, don't bother. The concierge is really good at helping you figure this stuff out.
There are a few Metropark hotels in Hong Kong. If you're asking for directions or using a taxi ask for the Metropark hotel on Waterloo Road.
There is no Wifi in the rooms (wow.....). There is wired internet for free. Wifi is available in the lobby for free (the signal is pretty weak though)
Check out is fine. Luggage storage is complimentary.
