What does the hotel look like? Check out the entrance and front desk!

The hotel is located at the corner of the intersection of the main street and an alley.

Entrance

There is a concierge desk on the left side of the entrance.

Lobby

There are sofas and tables along the windows in the lobby.

The lobby is bright because of the light streaming from the windows.

The front desk and lobby are not big, but I felt a sense of spaciousness as  it has a high ceiling. The lobby is finished in white polished stone and has a classy feel and a sense of cleanliness which gives a good impression.

There is a chandelier above the front counter.

The front counter was small. Service provided by the front counter staff was efficient, and I was able to check in smoothly.

What is the Family Room (up to 4 people) like?

Room door

We can open the room door by inserting a key card.

Room Key Card

I reserved an  executive room, but hotel staff upgraded to larger family room as executive rooms were full. There are 2 bedrooms in the family room, one bedroom has twin beds and the other has a queen size bed, and it can accommodate up to 4 people. It was big enough as I stayed by myself.

You can see the twin bed room when you enter the room. There is a closet at the right side of the door and a desk and a chair at the left side.

Floor plan on the door

The room felt bigger than the  actual size because the ceiling was high, each room has windows and there was a mirror on the wall.

Rooms are air-conditioned.

Beds in the twin bedroom

There was a cell phone on the desk in the twin bedroom which you can use for free during your stay. The cell phone allows you to connect free WiFi, free local calls and free international calls to several countries.

There was a travel plug conversion adapter, too.

A TV was  opposite the bed.

There is a door to the queen bedroom next to the TV.

I slept in this queen size bed. The mattress was a little bit hard for me, but the hardness of a bed is a matter of personal preference.

There are lights on the headboard.  

Slippers are prepared  beside the bedside table.

There was a TV in the queen bedroom, too.

Bathroom

The bathroom was next to the queen bedroom. The bathroom has a bathtub, and was big enough.

The queen bedroom seen from the bathroom.

I only used a shower, but bathtub was quite large and I'm sure you can stretch your legs and relax.

2 shampoos with conditioner and 2 bath gels were prepared on the bathtub. I prefer separate type shampoo to 2 in 1.

There were 2 types of shower head, one is normal handheld shower, and the other is overhead rain shower head. I tried both, but the  water pressure of the handheld shower wasn't strong enough for me.

I was able to adjust the height of the handheld shower head as well.

A large mirror next to the bathtub.

Towels were prepared, too.

Toilet

There are hooks on the wall next to the toilet so you can hang clothes and towels.

Bathroom sink

There was a set of scales under the sink.

Amenity was prepared next the sink. Amenity included body lotion, soap, toothbrush set, shaving kit, nail kit, shower cap, comb, sewing kit etc.

A hair dryer.

Closet & Safety Box

The closet was on the right side of the room door. The sliding door was a mirror. There was depth and height in the closet, so enough storage space.

There were 8 hangers, a laundry bag and a safety box inside.

The electronic lock type safety box was of sufficient size to put valuables.

It was a simple specification that only sets the PIN number.

Mini bar & Cafe corner

There was a cafe corner in the room. There were an electric kettle, 4 coffee cups, 4 free bottles of mineral water, and chips (charged).

Instant coffee, green tea, black tea, oolong tea bag were prepared.

There was a small fridge under the desk.

There were some beer, cola, bottles of mineral water, chocolates, and a snack in the fridge. You might be better to get these stuff at the convenience store or supermarkets near the hotel as you can buy them cheaper.

A restaurant in the hotel

There is one restaurant in the hotel.

The fusion restaurant "Oneonefishone" serves creative hot pot dishes dinner and a buffet breakfast & lunch every day from 06: 30 to 12: 30. The menu of dinner seems to be a course cooking mixed with creative hot pot dishes. It is like a Japanese Izakaya.

There were some Japanese sake barrels at the restaurant entrance.

Some photos from menu on the wall at the entrance.

There are some seats on the terrace.

From 5 to 6:30 in the evening, wine and nibbles were prepared.

Facilities and services in the hotel

There was a fitness center in the hotel, too.

The hotel offers a free hourly shuttle bus service to the city center from 8 am to 11 pm.

Hotel surroundings environment

There are lots of small restaurants and typical Hong Kong high-rise residential buildings along the road near the hotel because the hotel is in the old Hong Kong area. I saw lots of Chinese, Thai and Japanese restaurants, too. There were a primary school and a big shopping center in front of the hotel. It is very convenient for travellers becasue nearest subway station (MTR Olympic Station) is within 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

Hotel staff & Customers

I could check-in smoothly without waiting. The front desk staff explained me clearly about the free shuttle bus, executive lounge and breakfast in simple English. I had a good impression because of their pleasant manner to the guest.

There were many Asian, European and American guests. I think there are many travellers from Southeast Asia as I saw a Singaporean while I'm checking in.

Access

I used a train from Hong Kong airport to Kowloon Station, then it took 10 minutes by taxi from Kowloon Station to the hotel. It seems safe around the hotel. It is convenient location for shopping because there are a convenient store and a supermarket nearby. I enjoyed the townscape while walking to downtown area of ​​Mongkok as we can walk there.

Summary

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel because the building was rather new, and the hotel was clean, too. I got my room upgrade to family room this time, so I could sit back and relax in the big room. There are lots of plugs in the room, so it was useful to charge my laptop and mobile phone. However you might be better to prepare a travel plug conversion adapter for use though it is usually prepared in the room, or you can get it about HK$10 in the city. I think it can be used this hotel for both sightseeing and business trips because it is located near the center of Kowloon. There are free hourly shuttle bus service from 8 am to 11 pm, too.
