stayed 5Days & 4Nights

Staffs
- speak and understand a little english
when we check in, the front desk girl was asking for a security deposit and was asking for our credit card, we asked her if it be charged us right away for the security deposit of 500HKD or they will swipe the card and it will be void once we checked out. The girl said that we will be charged right away and that the card company will refund the 500 HKD security deposit after a month or so.. i told the girl how come we will be charged and wait for a month for a refund? blablablablaaaa... she didnt know how to explain and some of our questions to her she did not understand so the other person "a guy" with her stepped in and talk to us, he also cannot explain on why we will be charged right away (its our first time to encounter this cos on other hotels we stayed they voided the transaction once check out) and so this rude guy to end our conversation he just told us just give me 100USD. just give me 100USD for the security deposit. we gve him 100USD cos we are so tired.
- the front desk person on this hotel are rude

Rooms :
- stayed at 11th floor, 8th floor & 13th floor
- rooms are dirty
- they dont change their bedsheets & have bed bugs
- restrooms are dirty
- water pressure is low
- we request to change room cos of the strong smell of the cigarette smoke on our room.

Room Tip: dont book on this hotel

A low-price range hotel in Hong Kong
Stayed in this hotel for more than a month during house renovation.
In terms of location, it's not bad, 5 minutes from subway station
However large number of intrinsic problems
1. Very uncomfortable beds - Hardest ever mattress which has a texture of a stone. You will get a back pain after having a night sleep on it.
2. Very poor wifi signal, on and off signal from time to time, so get prepared with your own wifi
3. Dirty hotel room and amenities - Hairs found on sink and towels nearly everytime the cleaner cleans up the room
4. Another problem which is not directly related to the hotel itself but mostly due to the fact that this hotel is very popular among the mainland chinese who are usually rude and noisy. They seem to be really excited every morning and they talked and screamed out loudly at the corridor. What makes the thing worse is that the poor soundproof of the room. Getting a good night sleep is major difficulty with the hotel

the dirtiest hotel I 've ever stayed in. I developed a rash after sleeping there. My whole body was itchy.the beds are so hard.The staffs are unhelpful at the counter.None of the sockets is working in my room.USB point is not working. The phone is not working. The carpets are tatty. It was very noisy.

Noise from the pipes kept waking me up.

The counter couldn't care less when you complained.

I would not pay more than HK$ 200 per night for staying there

Room Tip: dont come here

Hotel is an average 3 star hotel, in average location.
However, reason for my 'terrible' review is that customer service is appalling. On their hotel listing, they had advertised the room comes with complimentary international calls. And prior to making an international call, I even checked with their reception, and they confirmed this is correct.
After I had checked out, they billed me for the call and took the charge from my credit card WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. The charge accounted for almost an additional 30% of the hotel rate.
Staff did not respond when I contacted them, and had to get my travel agent to assist. They did not acknowledge that their ad was wrong, and claimed they never offered free international calls. I would have used Skype to make calls if I wasn't misled into thinking the calls were complimentary.

Atrocious staff - never again will I stay here.

this hotel is 100 yards forwards from the A11 stop from HKIA, I was greeted at reception warmly as a return visitor and again found the room roomy and adequate for us. it is 200 yards from the terminus of the ding ding tram and 3 mins from the metro. the Stanley bus and the ferry is 5 mins walk away from the hotel. Local shops and super markets are all around the hotel and a local market is in the next street.
found breakfast good and a 7/ii just across the road.
Overall a very good hotel with lots of local character all around and good wifi.
