“Beginning to look scruffy; Charge for Internet.”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

The hotel is well situated on the corner of Garden Road and MacDonnell Road. Nothing has been spent on maintenance and its beginning to look scruffy. Many of the 'Superior' rooms overlook surrounding buildings and to get a good view over the parkland and over Central it is necessary to have a 'deluxe' one. The rooms are decorated in off white and scuffs and stains on carpets are all too evident.

Front desk staff and the Manager in particular are generally surly and unhelpful. They charge HK$100 per 24 hours for not very fast internet. All their competitors in this price range include this for free as they should. They never state the price - even on their own website which is just dishonest. Internet is like hot water - it shouldn't be an extra.

Odd and very overpriced items in the minibar. Even local calls (which are free in most hotels as they are free in Hong Kong) are charged.

There is an out door pool but it is closed all winter rather than being heated.

Its major advantage is the ease of getting to and from central even at busy times when getting to a hotel in Wanchai or western can be very slow.

Room Tip: Higher level rooms overlooking the park.

Do not like this hotel. The rooms are old and ugly. The location is OK but not amazing.
Prize is low for Hong Kong but you can find better value places!
Hotel did not have Wifi in the rooms.
Front desk staff was not that friendly and looked like they where falling asleep when the checked us in.
Room was clean and had an OK size.

Very Clean. Couldn't ask for anything else!

Even though it's on top of a hill it's easily accessible by escalators and cabs

room is definitely extra large using hong kong hotels' standard. very close to the hong kong park, where you can enjoy the greeness. easy to get a cab and it won't take you more than HKD30 to get to center locations. only drawback is that there's no in-room wifi and you need to pay extra HKD100 per day to get to internet access.

Situated on Hong Kong island, this is a well placed hotel for seeing the city. Very close to the peak tram terminus although it is an uphill walk on the way back. My room had views overlooking central and the botanical gardens. The room was spacious, very clean, quiet and had everything I needed. The staff were very helpful and pleasant whenever I came in. The pool was closed for renovation but this was clearly stated on the website. I would definitely go back there again.
