The king size bed was big enough to sleep alone. The firmness of the mattress was just fine for me, and I could sleep well with a soft pillow.

The windows in this room face the courtyard, so I couldn't see a nice view. However, I could have a quiet relaxing time in my room because I didn't hear the noise of cars at all. The courtyard is just green and nothing special. If you would like to have a great view, I recommend that you request a harbour view room.

The bathroom has enough space. The bathtub is on the right, the toilet is in the front, and the sink is on the left.

Bathtub

The shower head was removable and height adjustable, and the water pressure was strong enough. The shower curtains were double layered, so it was really good to prevent water splashing outside the bathtub.

Towels were prepared, too. Bath towels are thick and big enough.

It is located in the eastern part of Tsim Sha Tsui. There are lots of hotels and restaurants in this harbour front area. A taxi from Kowloon Station is the easiest access from Hong Kong Airport. I think security is no problem. You can get to the downtown area of ​​Tsim Sha Tsui in 10 to 15 minutes, then use subway etc. from there.

Around the hotel

Summary

It was good to stay at this hotel. I couldn’t enjoy the scenery from my garden view room, but it was quiet and I was able to sleep well without suffering from the noise outside as my room did not face the main road. I think it’s a great room for people who need to stay on a business trip. If you come to stay for sightseeing, I’ll recommend that you book a harbour view room. You can enjoy the amazing view as nothing blocks the view of the Victoria Harbour, even if you stay on the lower floors.
