“A re-review after 3 years.”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

It's been awhile since I visited Hong Kong. I remember my first review of Mingle on the Wing back in 2009 and it had brought significant readership and followers from my blog which many took an interest and stayed at the hotel.

Having said that, my reason for staying in Mingle is definitely due to the location, which is in Sheung Wan. The sure way of saving taxi fare is to hop on the Airport Express Train that cost around HK$70 (Est US$9) to transit at Central MTR, pay another HK$24 to Sheung Wan MTR (Last stop on the Island Line in Blue). The nearest walk to the hotel is by exiting "A2" and try to look out for 7-11. Its just a quick 3 mins diagonally across.

I never do like to comment on unpleasantness of the staff bearing in mind that they still need to keep their jobs but that particular trio on shift, showed no interest or hospitality on their faces.

I was allocated to a room, which was directly in front of the lift and what made it even uncomfortable was that the bed was directly facing the main door and lift door. In chinese feng shui, one should never have their feet facing directly the main door, as it signifies the 'coffin position'. I was ill throughout my stay and was little disturbed by the chattering of the chambermaids due to the close proximity to the next room and thin walls. As mentioned by another reader, the bed takes up pretty 95% of the sleeping area and that, my friend, is absolutely true.

It is unusual for me to switch loyalties and find a new place or environment to stay in but I think I've outgrown my time with Mingle and unless you upgrade to an Executive or Deluxe Room, which I was unable to upgrade as it was full.

On the positive side of things, it is definitely a place in the heart of a nostalgic sleepy district, great in-house movies to watch, a Skype phone to connect to your account and decent music systems.

My take is, something gotta be revamped to take the hotel to greater heights.

Room Tip: Request not to have a room, facing the lift.

I stayed here 2 nights with a friend on the 2nd floor, the room was small, the air-conditioner was constantly leaking, the TV didn't work, 1 day the electricity tripped and the whole system couldn't work for awhile and the bathroom door kept getting stuck and couldn't be closed. I felt it was over-priced, despite the great location. Our friends had better experiences though. Perhaps the room closest to the staircase on the 2nd floor should just be avoided!

My wife and I spent 5 nights here over New Year's Eve (2011-12) and can thoroughly recommend it.

Pros: the main pro is the location. You can see the Hotel's entrance from the Sheung Wan metro (MTR) exit - it's a 60 second walk. If you're not familiar with Hong Kong, being so close to an MTR station is great. You can be anywhere in Hong Kong within a quick, cheap and easy ride on the metro. That being said, the location is also good enough that you can walk to plenty of the key places, including Soho (10 mins), the Central Ferry Terminal (10 mins) etc. There's a Starbucks around the corner, plus a 7-11, restaurants, ATMs etc all on the same block. In short, it's right in the heart of Hong Kong island.
- other pros include fast (and free) wifi in each room, plus a big TV, DVD player and even a decent sound system, funnily enough. Also, the staff all speak decent English and will help with directions, restaurant bookings, recommendations etc. The cleaning staff did a great job every day, and we left our laptops, cell phones, passports etc on the bed when we went out, without any problems.

Cons: the standard rooms are clean and modern, but tiny. Seriously tiny. Like novelty size. The bed takes up about 95% of the floor space. For us this wasn't a problem, as we were out exploring most days and nights, so it was fine to return to the room and sleep/recover and watch TV in bed. But if you have other plans, this might be a factor for you. The bathroom was also tiny, but clean and modern.
- The price for New Years Eve (A$400+ p/night) seemed crazy given the size of the room, but this was the cheapest room just about anywhere on Hong Kong island for that time, so we can't complain.

We'll be back.

The only reason I chose this place is that I needed a one-night stay and it was under US$150. I checked all over Kowloon & HK and the only rooms under $200 were hostels.

It is located less than one block from the MTR station which is nice, and in close proximity to Central. There are some good cheap eats in the area too.

But back to the room, it was as small as a standard cruise ship cabin. My single bed wedged between the walls and was difficult to access except from the base. I did have windows so it wasn't too claustrophobic. They do have 2 PCs near the check in counter for free use, as well as free Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: All the rooms are small, so at least get ones with windows.

Stayed here over 3 nights in the lite room for my short trip in Hong Kong. Room is definitely small but spacious enough for 1 person. However, if you have big luggages and have many clothes for hanging in a cupboard, space might be limited. Perhaps the bigger rooms might be more spacious?

Location of the hotel is good, less than 5 mins walk from Sheung Wan MTR station (Turn right after taking the A2 exit). If you plan to travel to Mongkok or Tsim Tsha Tsui area, the train rides are quite fast too. Of course, it is within walking distance to Lan Kwai Fong and you can save the cab fare on a late night out. Roughly about 5-10 mins walk.

Condition of the room is good, nice and clean. Free Wi-Fi and free movies on demand. The downside might be the noise if you are a light sleeper as you will be able to hear the closing of doors and people talking outside the corridors. Toilet is small but still bearable.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay and had a great 3 days in Hong Kong.

I needed to book somewhere last minute for one night, that allowed me to easily catch the train to the airport in the early morning.

This hotel is small and so are the rooms, I had a deluxe double room which I would still describe as "compact" (maybe able to swing a small cat...) but it was fine for one night, the bathroom was clean and after running the water for a while the shower was hot.

The on-demand movie facility in the room was an unexpected extra. The front desk staff were pleasant enough, although I did not need to ask them to do much.

Hotels in Hong Kong are expensive compared to many cities so never really great value for money, and even more expensive if booked last minute, however this one was cheaper than most and is in a convenient location. It is very close to an MTR stop and in theory you could walk to the Airport Express station, however not with a large suitcase... a taxi costs about HK$25 each way (which is essentially the minimum fair with luggage).

My wife and I stayed at Mingle on the Wing for one night at the beginning of November. It served us fine. Yes, the room was tiny but we weren't in it for very long. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was alright. It's location was great. Just a few steps away from the subway and only a stop away from Central and Lan Kwai Fong. We paid a bit too much as it was a busy weekend for conferences and conventions and they increased their rates but would stay there again if there wasn't so much going on in the city.
