I have family who live in this part of hong kong, and one of their friends told me about this place. When we had a family event on, and a few of us were in hong kong, I offered to try this place out. The family friend was so positive about this place and before we checked in I thought that it can't be that good - but it really is... The deal is that you stay in a stunning 5 star standard room for a very reasonable price. Its based on the 6th floor of a Chinese cookery school. The down sides are that it's about a 15 min drive into central hong kong and the staff are all in training. However, I would say the downsides are not that bad - there is a bus stop right outside and we never waited more than 3 mins for a bus to central. A bus to central is about 50 pence (gbp). The hotel are willing to order cabs but we did wait a while so it's just as quick to get the bus. Most of the time, we got a taxi back to the hotel - cost
around 70 hkd (about £6 gbp) but its a good idea to have one of the hotel cards with you as
a few taxi drivers were not aware of this facility. You have to be a bit patient with the staff
as they are all in training, but what they lack in experience and confidence they make up for
in eagerness, also I should say that there is always an experienced supervisor around so they
step in when things may be taking a bit to long or they lay the cutlery out incorrectly for
example. Other plus points are that the drinks in the mini bar, and at the bar, plus dinner are all very very reasonably priced. We had a bottle of wine for 88hkd (£7 gbp) - bet you wont find that in any other hotel, and there are some lovely sea views from the rooms and bar terrace. Another tip from someone who has been to hong kong a few times - the hotel is very near pokfulam country park, and there is a great walk up to the peak. Go to the park and at the gate, turn left up a big flight of stairs. At the top of the stairs bear right and you'll join a path. Follow the path round to you get to a road. Turn left and follow the road up to the peak. It's about an hour to hour and a half walk depending on your fitness.
