Because of various conventions, many hotels in Tsim sha Tsui and Causeway Bay areas have increase their rates (Sep 2011). Some hotels even charged more than double their usual rates. Thus I looked for other hotels which did not increase their price. And I found Pop Hotel. The hotel provides simple but comfortable room, with free internet, (cable and wifi), daily bottled water, slippers, toothbrush, etc. However, the TV only shows Chinese Channels. While the water supply in the shower is good, the water heater is not consistent. Suddenly the water can turn very cold or very hot. I'm guessing that this is due to small water heater tank. The Hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Langham Place, MTR and shopping District. But it is located in the vicinity of hardware stores selling various metal products, thus I feel that the walk is much longer.
The hotel will satisfy many travelers who wants to shop and do not expect a full hotel service. It does not have a restaurant. It is after all a budget hotel. But if you have small children or wants better service, this might not be for you.
Restaurant Tip : There is a small Dimsum place popular with the locals, Tim Ho Wan, about 15 minutes walk from the hotel. The wait time is about 1 to 2 hours. But the food is excellent and the price, very reasonable. It gained michellin 1 star rating.
