Technically, the hotel is connected to Mong Kok East Station which is a train station and not a subway station. The reason it matters is because Mong Kok East and Mong Kok are two separate stations running on two separate lines, going to different places. You don't want to get them confused. Check MTR's website for the system map.
Then is it more expensive to travel on the Mong Kok East line since it is a rail as compared to travelling on the subway?
It's not necessarily more expensive to travel on East Rail but you probably won't find this line as convenient for where you want to get to as Mongkok Station which is served by both the MTR Tsuen Wan Line and MTR Kwun Tong Line, serving mainly urban areas and the Tsuen Wan Line also goes across to Hong Kong Island.
As Sammyfloyd suggests, you should study the MTR map before deciding which route is most convenient for your journey;
East Rail was formerly operated by the Kowloon-Canton Railway (KCR) from Kowloon through to the mainland border at Lo Wu via the east New Territories and much of this line was overground. In 2007 the MTR and KCR merged and the KCR lost its identity. The KCR became part of the MTR system and barriers at the three MTR/KCR interchange stations were removed so that passengers could transfer seamlessly between lines without having to pass through platform exit and entry barriers when interchanging. Mongkok East Station was previously Mongkok Station but was renamed Mongkok East to avoid confusion with the other station of the same name.Edited: 19 August 2010, 16:16
Think we will be getting a cab from the ferry terminal.
Are there any recommended dim sum restaurant nearby the hotel?
