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.
