60 West Hotel
Ranked #6 of 264 Hong Kong B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 April 2012

The hotel is located about 10mins walk away from the Sheung Wan MTR station, and near to the airport bus A11 stop at Macau Ferry Terminal.
However, my wife and I didn't want to walk with our luggage, so we took the airport train to HK AEL station and took a tram (5 stops) to the W82 Sutherland Street station.

The entrance is not very obvious, right next to a bank on a street full of medical shops selling dried seafood, which gives the street a quite distinct smell even when all the shops closes. However it is not unbearable.

After a fast check in, we proceeded to the room which is really huge. We had a king size bed and the room still has space to accomodate 2 more king size bed. This is really big compare to a lot of hotel for the price which we paid. The toilet is normal size, so you don't need to squeeze in a tiny corner to shower.
We stayed on the 2nd floor and there is a huge banner blocking our window, so we can't look out. But the huge banner is pretty useful for visitors who are looking to locate the hotel, besides we don't really need the view.

There are 2 complimentary bottled water daily, microwave, safebox, iron, kettle and a mini fridge (which is empty) and best of all, free wifi. Toiletries are minimal, just toothpaste, toothbrush and shower gel.

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay there. It's great to return to a huge clean new room with a huge kind size bed after you have spent a long day out touring HK.

For the price which we paid, it is really value for money.
The only slight problem might be the location since it is not near the MTR station. For us that wasn't an issue, since we just took the tram (which are very frequent) to Central MTR station where we can catch ferries to other island, or buses or the MTR.

Room Tip: The room on 2nd floor has its windows blocked by the huge banner which can be seen from the street...

Having spent over five weeks in this hotel I have a pretty good feel for it.

It is located in Sheung Wan. The MTR train is about a 10 minute walk away and Central is about a 20 minute walk. You could take the MTR to Central but I found it seemed to be quicker just walking direct rather than battling the crowds in the MTR.

Right outside the door is a tram that costs HK22 (AUD$2.75) fixed price irrespective of the distance travelled that will take you past Central and beyond Causeway Bay. It is a very convenient and a cheap means of transport but watch your head as your enter the tram as it is not designed for tall foreigners.

The hotel itself is comfortable. No Restaurants. There are however more than enough local restaurants particularly if you are adventureous and don't mind eating where the locals do. The staff at the front desk are very polite. A strange quirk is that at checkout they will physically go and check the room is intact and nothing is missing. For me that is a very strange behaviour so don't feel that you can't say so on checkout as well.

The bed is very comfortable and large too. Shower works well. Cleaning of room is done daily with sheets changed once a week (however this week it is over a week since they were changed!). Two free bottles of water provided. Free wireless wi-fi - which is very fast!

I had a slight view between two buildings of the bay. Westerners are not that common in the area and often I would be the only Westerner eating in a restaurant. The area feels safe. Laundry can be dropped off surrounding laundry shops. Three business shirts cleaned and pressed cost HK$60 (AUD$7.50) and are ready within two days of drop off.

There are ample supermarkets and convenience stores in the area (7-11) so getting groceries is no issue. The Sheung Wan area is known as the Western Markets and you will see many stores with dried produce on display (fish, octupus, mushrooms and lots of items I had no idea what they could be!!!!).

Overall the location is good, the hotel is comfortable. Rate was about HK$1000 (AUD$125) per night (I thought it was slightly over priced) and I would recommend it.

Room Tip: from what I could see all rooms were as good as another..just the size varied according to the dolla...

Very good value. Convenient to all transportation. Friendly service, but minimal services. Good for a long stay.
