This was a really great find. Exceptionally good value, about half the price of similar. Although the staff are training, they are competent and very keen to please. You won't get any attitude here.
The rooms are superbly designed and extremely well equipped. Well-stocked mini-bar that you can actually use because the item prices are low. Good restaurant with, again, very reasonable prices, including the wine (an excellent bottle of Chardonnay was $15!).

Great views from the Harbour view rooms. Well equipped gym. Slight downside is that it is away from the main Harbour, but that's only a 10 minute taxi ride (which is about $7). Close to the Stanley market (must see) and the jumbo restaurant (expensive and grumpy).

Room Tip: Harbour view. There are adjoining rooms for families

The past month I spent 2 days in this hotel and I just want to share that this was a great value for money I payed. The staff was great and helpful, the views are amazing and the breakfast was very tasty. Everyone was courteous and very friendly, easy access from the airport. I would highly recommended and I will difinately go back.

Absolutely beautiful and service impeccable little hotel in HK is more than just a value for money.
Beautifully designed rooms with everything you need, including WiFi, super comfy bed and minibar with very reasonably priced goodies. I really liked the white wine!
Location, in my opinion, is actually not in the center of everything. The hotel is situated a bit aside, in like training schools area, but the public transport system in HK is very well-developed, so you can get a bus and go anywhere.
I regret I haven't used the gym there, it is so polished and has very good machines together with beautiful shower rooms.
As for included breakfast, it was okay. Pretty good choice of everything, western and chinese options. But coffee is very average, that was the only thing I found was a drawback.
Also I am not sure why not many people mention how incredibly convenient is to get from the airport to the hotel - by bus. You are literally hop in the bus at the terminal and get out 1 hour later right next to the hotel. Thanks to the notes on reservation form provided from the hotel during booking we got our tickets for A10 bus in the airport and got there safely and hassle-free. So if it is your short stay in HK, no need to buy an octopus card.
Little tip: it is better to buy return ticket from the airport, because it is cheaper and on the way back you will find out that the bus driver do not sell tickets - u can either pay by electronic card or pay cash, but no change.
Also the trainees in the hotel are no allowed to accept tips;)

Room Tip: ask for a sea-view room during the booking, you might be lucky to get one.

We stayed for 5 nights in March 2012. First tip when arriving, get the airport express train to Hong Kong Station, then a taxi. We bought tourist Octopus cards that included 2 single airport transfers plus all trains for any 3 consecutive days and you can add money to use on buses, ferries and lots of other stuff (dead simple, we are both over 60 and we managed it!!). Any money you add is refunded if not used. Tip2 print off the hotel info sheet, keep it with you as its invaluable to know which buses drop at the hotel.

We arrived early and we got into the room no problem. We had an ocean view room, really nice, spotless, just as the pictures indicate. Mini bar is very cheap. We don't usually use it but we did here. The room was very quiet.

Staff very helpful, obviously a little nervous and sometimes slower when carrying out tasks, but that doesn't detract from the experience.

Tip 3 - book early for Friday dinner special, we didn't and it was fully booked. Breakfast was OK. Because they are dealing with relatively small numbers the buffet is not particularly well stocked and could be hotter but it is more than adequate.

We tried to tip the person who brought our cases, but we're politely told that as it was a training hotel, they could not accept tips.

The location might be an issue for some, but be advised the transport system is very efficient. We used mainly buses from the hotel to the centre (15 mins) and dont think we ever waited more than 3 or 4 minutes because there's a lot of options. When coming back on the bus, just remember to watch for a couple of blue Chinese Institute signs followed by a blue road sign with an exit signed to Pok Fu Lam and hit the bell. Central bus terminus is a good place to get the bus back because one stop is used for all the buses that pass the hotel (not M74).

When leaving, book the complimentary hotel shuttle to HK station and check in there, including dropping cases. You can then carry on looking round HK if your flight isn't till later in the day.

This was our first trip to HK, but if we ever return, we would definitely consider staying here. It was a real find.

Tourist tips, big bus gives a good insight into the place. We found the weather clearer in the afternoon, so bear this in mind when doing the peak, which is a must. Sha Tin races was excellent, even on Derby day it was comfortable, but take your passport to get a tourist members badge (£15) , then you can sit (Yes sit!) in line with the finish line if you want to! Everyone likes different things, so your guide book will point you in the right direction. Talking of which we used the Time Out Guide book and found it very good.

Whenever you go, have a great time.

Stayed here for 4 nights and it was a wonderful experience. Truly the best service we had in a long long time and the training staff are delightful - they can't do enough to help you and spoil you in every way possible. I think this is an excellent value for money and an unbelievable find for HK. Taxi to Central takes about 15 min and costs around $10 if you do not want to take pubic transport. The rooms are wonderful, quiet, well-decorated and with superbly comfy beds. It is also worth noting that this is the cleanest property that I have stayed in during this trip - others as a benchmark included Shangri-La, Mandarin, and 4 Seasons and none were as well cleaned as the T-Hotel. I hope the hotel continues to receive wonderful reviews! What a find...
