Remember you're there to be outside the hotel most of the time.
I had brought my fiance for the first time to HK to meet my family. The hotel was cheap(ish) and central for where we needed to travel to/from daily. The Hotel is only a short 5 min walk from lots of tasty restaurants, bars and shops in Tsim Sha Tsui, and close to Jordan where they have tasty authentic street food and a night market about 15 mins away. Kowloon Harbour and its iconic skyline are also a 20-30 min walk away. If its raining or you like big shopping centres (and i mean seriously big and high end fashion) you have the Harbour city/Ocean centre fairly close and Elements a bit further away (id suggest a taxi here). If you prefer a bit of green in the urban jungle visit the beautiful Kowloon park about 10/15 mins walk away, with outdoor swimming pool for kids, wildlife and an aviary and lovely well manicured gardens and ponds . In regards to the public transport, the MTR, nearest station is Jordan, its perfect if you want to get to Central or Kowloon Tong, but bit more of a long winded journey to Kowloon Harbour (if you didnt want to walk). You could however get a taxi pretty much anywhere and fares are really cheap in £Sterling.
We stayed in up in second to top floor. As expected from its photos, It was very small, but brighter than i thought it be. It had a big window, and as we were high up, the view was good, with no other buildings blocking it. The room was clean but didn't have a wardrobe or hangers, so we couldnt hang up our clothes, and the sink was in an alcove behind the front door. This was the only place with a mirror and the spotlight was horrendous for doing your make up. The bathroom was tiny, but the water pressure and thermostat was good. Aircon was also good, and not hard to regulate. There's a mini fridge. The beds were large, very firm but comfortable. The breakfast was the biggest disappointment, actually so much so we often bailed and went elsewhere to eat, which was a waste since we prepaid when booking. We had a typhoon while staying so we had dinner in-house one evening, that was pretty disappointing as well. Service at restaurant was attentive and friendly though. oh and wait by the toaster for your toast to finish toasting when your at breakfast.
Just outside the hotel there is a budget massage parlor called Sparkles - good strong masseuses there if you're feet are aching from walking around. And you're never far from a 7/11 or CircleK (little convenient stores) within 10 steps of the hotel front door in case you need last minute toiletries, or have an attack of the munchies in the middle of the night.
All in all - My fiance loved it, and we had a comfortable stay at the hotel, and there was plenty right on its doorstep to do, see, eat and that's what it was all about. HK is a beautiful, lively, bright, exciting place full of life's most enjoyable experiences, we didn't visit to stay cooped up in the hotel worrying about its limitations. less
