I had always been wanting to try Jia and finally had a chance when we decided to stay in Causeway bay for our HK trip in Nov 11. Got a fair rate off Jia's own website for a studio and overall we felt it was value for money in comparison to other properties nearby.
First of all, we were very impressed with the location. For hotel guests who would like to be in the center of everything, Irving Street is absolutely perfect. Plenty of affordable and reputable eateries nearby, a michelin star Din Tai Fung was literally 20 steps away from hotel entrance. If continental breakfast is not what you are after, won ton mee and congee places are just a stone's throw away. Since Jia provides complimentary all-day drinks and snacks, you may not need a convenient store as such, but 7-Eleven can also be spotted right opposite the hotel. We normally like to stock up bottles of water in our room but this time, we did not make a trip once to a convenient store! MTR station and great shopping were about 5-10 minutes away, depending how fast you walk.
The 8th Floor studio room itself was somewhat a let down for our stay. Wears and tears on the furnitures were evident inside our unit and couple of things didn't function properly for instance, the switch for the main lamp was loose and needed fixing, the wardrobe did not want to close itself so the automatic light inside was constantly on, the safety deposit box also died on me for an unknown reason. To top that, the bathroom was so tiny that two people couldn't walk pass each other and the water kept leaking while having a shower and inevitably wet the floor.
Although we seemed to be facing some issues but they didn't bother us so much and overall we had quality sleep throughout our 3-night stay. Because of the location, we would not mind returning but we must lower our expectations. Perhaps we are used to the international chain hotels with more definitive standard but considering Jia as a boutique hotel, we felt rather positive about our experience.
