Very professional and helpful staff. Nice room and bathroom with a very good shower and "traditional" bathtub. Very good breakfast with a lot of options and high quality food. Very good location within a 10 minutes walk to the MTR station and in a pleasant place.

Hotel has good location with many Japanese eatery around. Can see many Japanese guest in the Hotel. Working deskis of reasonable good size. Internet speed is so so. Good Hot water pressure. What is best is thatit has a small Deep bathtub. However, the Aircon temp setting is not very reacative and you get too warm or too cold.
