The rooms just fit small double bed (!) and if you keep your lugguage beside it then there is no more space Bathroom is a small basin and toilet wide, nothing else can get accommodated, but in the entire mansion (apartments) this is one of the cleanliest one Another big issue is lift, the building has a very tiny lift for each block and some times you have to wait in a big queue for your turn
Host was kind enough to let us check in at 11pm due to a late flight. Place was secure and basic necessities provided. Room was serviced everyday. Close to a lot of dining establishments and the subway. Good place to stay if you’re on a budget.
The room was very small (as expected) but clean and very handily located to the centre of Hong Kong. I didn't arrive until the middle of the night due to a late flight but the owner was obliging in getting up and letting me in (as I had prearranged to do so). The building the guest house is located in is a bit chaotic and also has many other similar guest houses so know the floor you're on (as the two lifts only goes to alternate floors). I don't think I'd want to stay in the room for more than a day or two as it is no overly cosy but the location is a real positive if you're wanting to make the most of exploring HK.
The place itself is very clean and well maintained. However, the rooms are very small for 2 people. We expected to have 2 separate bedrooms since we indicated it in our bookings. However, my friend and I ended up sharing a bed. The hallways is too small for a chair. We waited for a couple of minutes sitting on the floor before they could fix our room. The flat is also located in a very busy place. The lift is the most problem of all, too small to fit alot. Too busy, you need to wait alot. Waste of time. However, for any consolation the owner was very friendly and nice, speaks and understands english very well. He even gave us directions to some place to visit and a free map.
If you're not bothered by the chaos of Chungking Mansions, and you just need a place to crash for the night, this is an excellent choice. The worst part is that the elevators can be slow, and walking up 15 flights of stairs would be cumbersome. The rooms are only about 5 square meters, including the miniscule private bathroom. That's barely enough room to stand beside the bed. No view, though it does have a window.
I usually take a few days for myself early each year to unwind and rally my thoughts to deal with the year ahead. This place is by far the most cost-effective and convenient guesthouse in Hong Kong. The important thing is the checking in is quick, no fuss and the owner is also quite friendly and helpful. The place is just a few steps from the MTR exit. It is in the middle of Tsim Sha Tsui where you can access the best shopping areas in Hong Kong.
Great location, next to all of the shopping areas, buses, ferries, subways, and downtown night life. Very small room (sleeping only), but clean. Your tolit and shower are in the same area of the room so when you shower you literally soak your sink and tolit, lol. There is a spare bathroom so you can use the facilities outside of your room. You do get a TV, a small window, and ac so that's pretty good. There is house cleaning, but you have to ask for them to changeout your towels. I was surprised, but we where provided w/soap & a toothbrush. Suggestion: If you're on a tight budget than it's worth the stay for the location. Otherwise, I'd say stay in a more comfortable hotel. Biggest Con: the hotel is located in an area where you will be hackled and pursued by solicitors constantly. We had to find an alternative route to get to our hotel & room so we could avoid people trying to sell us fake Rolex watches, lol. …
First of all, know what you're paying for. If you're staying in Hong Kong know that property there is super expensive and everything is crowded and small. If you need someplace comfortable and roomy with luxury facilities then this is not the place for you. However if you are looking for something cheap, clean, and only need a place to sleep and shower then this place fits the bill nicely. For the price, you definitely get what you paid for and the staff there is super friendly and you can ask them for towels, soap, and some toiletries. On a side note know that in Asia it is very common to see apartments, hotels, etc where the toilet has no separation from the showers. Yes, it definitely takes some getting used too but once you wrap your head around the idea that you're only really staying there for a couple of nights then just be thankful that the place is clean. If you want a nice bathroom I think you will have to look more around the luxurious side.…
Ocean Guest House is a great place as long as you have a clear idea of what you want, need and what you're getting. I've stayed at the Butterfly on Morrison's Deluxe room - a relatively plush, mid-level boutique hotel and considerably more expensive than this; I've also stayed at the Mini Hotel central which is about twice this in price. And, all things considered, I’d recommend this before the other two places - particularly the Mini Hotel which I had been happy with prior to my stay here. I was recommended this place by a friend and given the difference in price, I was hopeful that it'd be nice and then i could save a lot of money on the hotel when going to Hong Kong. If Hong Kong is anything, it's expensive. The pros: It's cheap. That's what's obviously good about this place. It's clean. This is invaluable. My primary concern was that the place would be hopping with bed bugs and any other sort of critter and denizen of cheap hotels around the world. As it turned out, the place was a little rough around the edges but it was clean. Staff are nice. Some hotels are so cheap that the staff figure you haven't paid enough to get their service on top of the box you've been assigned to sleep in. They were very friendly and helpful. The location. It's right next to Tsim Sha Tsui station which means instant access to the rest of Kowloon or back on Causeway Bay in 10 minutes. In fact you'll spend more time walking about the labyrinths of the MTR stations, wondering how to get out, than you will travelling. Those are the good things. Now assess the cons: The rooms are small. Very small. Well yes. But here's the thing: unless you're loaded and are prepared to spend that load, you'll be staying in a room that is small. And probably, whatever size of hotel room you're used to staying in elsewhere, Hong Kong, as a whole, will provide something disappointingly small. Unless you're super rich. So, honestly, I didn't think this was much of a downer. In fact the room was bigger than the two different rooms I stayed in at the Mini Hotel Central. The room is ugly. Very Ugly. Well yes. There's no real way to qualify this: you're staying in a place that's decorated like a utility bathroom. Tiled floor and tiled walls. Maybe even tiled ceiling but I wasn't inspecting the ceiling much. But here's the thing: wherever I've stayed - and I've stayed in some pretty swanky places (not the best, but swanky nevertheless) - I pretty much get to the hotel room, quickly sort myself out then go out. All I do in the room, really, is sleep. So if the hotel is a place you like to hang out in, if it's part of your experience, and you want that to be salubrious, this is not the place for you. Otherwise...it's ugly! So what? To be honest I was quite entertained by the thought that I was voluntarily having a cosy sleep in a bathroom without also racing the porcelain bus around whitey's-ville. Bed is small and Spartan. This is true. I'm 5'10" and with my head on the pillow, the sole of my foot was touching tile. If you are point guard for a basketball team, I suggest another hotel or a double bed at least. But the bed was comfy enough. And the duvet, despite being little more than a glorified blanket, did its job. With the wonderfully noisy air-conditioning blasting away (I'm a brit and I need to replicate the icy conditions of the homeland wherever I go), I was plenty warm enough. The room is in Chunking Mansions. What's that? It's a place in Kowloon where ne'erdowells come together to do their thing: sell drugs, knock-off watches and tailored suits, it seems. So is this bad? Again, it's perspective. I wouldn't recommend it to my parents because my mum would be convinced that death was around every corning. But realistically, just like the rest of Hong Kong, it's pretty safe. Safer, say, than Las Vegas, off-strip, where death really is around every corner. Sure, the pushers are pushy but I didn't get any sense of danger at all. You just go about your business and ignore them. Honestly, Chunking Mansions is an institution in its own right and if you like to see all aspects of a place you're visiting, not just the fancy parts, I'd recommend a look regardless. In fact, I found it a pleasant palliative to the endless supply of the beautiful and the well-heeled who, frankly, are the worst thing about Hong Kong in general: self-impressed, vacuous and materialistic. Urgh. But that's another story. What else is wrong with the place? hmm...the interconnecting sections that run between the hotels and through the core of the building, look like something from a post-apocalyptic movie. Again, if you want salubrious, this is not the place for you. If you take such things in your stride, it's no big deal. I can say that the Ocean Guest House is pretty well maintained. The lift and finding the place. Chunking Mansions is like some sort of super-building which consists in many the hotels scattered throughout it. Locating your hotel can be a pinch but there's a sign outside the elevator which is hard to read but gives you the location well enough. And the lift you have to queue for. There's two of them but the average wait was about 10 - 15 minutes when I was visiting on a Saturday. Is that a problem? It is if you're desperate for the toilet, otherwise, not really. I'll be staying here from now on. Unless I need to impress someone for some reason and where I'm staying is a consideration in that. And I fully recommend this place based on the above.…
this is a great place, the entrance is right opposite an exit of Jordan metro, its right in the heart of the city, its clean, good and the owners are very nice people. a great place to stay. there is no kitchen but you could ask the owner to warm some food for you but there is free wifi in the room.
