“Hidden gem, if you don't mind being 30 min. from "downtown"”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

This hotel, as other have indicated, is about a 20 min ride from the airport: Airport Express to Tsing Yi (HK$60 or HK$110 round trip) plus taxi (about HK$23-25)

Pluses:
* If you need to be near the airport area, I can't think of a better choice. Rates are less than half of the immediate airport hotels.
* Largest rooms I've seen in Hong Kong, at least compared to the ones in Kowloon and TST. I stayed in a Superior room, at least 25 m2.
* Free wi-fi, and the connection was pretty good.
* Good open views. It's facing the Tsing Yi bridge and a container port, ok it's not the views from the Intercontinental or the Westin, but you'll pay at least HK$2500 for these views.
* A short 5 min. taxi ride from/to the Maritime Square mall (where the Tsing Yi station is located), a large center with everything, including access to everywhere in Hong Kong.

The so-so:
* I suspect this and the sister hotel (Rambler Garden next door) are used by Chinese tour groups. Frankly though, very few hotels in HK these days aren't(!). If you happen to be checking in/out when they are there, be patient. The staff though is polite and helpful.
* Nothing in the immediate vicinity. The Maritime Square mall is only about 1 km to the north, but walking to/from is difficult and not recommended. After all, the taxi fare is about US$3.
* There is loading/unloading at the container port going on 24/7! The windows seem to block out most of the noise, but if you are a light sleeper, bring your ear plugs.

My rate came with no breakfast.

Now the location:
15 min. from the airport.
Depending where in downtown you are going, it can take anywhere from 20-40 min. If you're going to Central, it's an easy and cheap MTR ride on the Tung Chung line. If you're going to TST-East TST, it's at least 35 min. with a transfer.

We stayed here during our last night at HKG.They upgraded our room to deluxe. Nice clean & spacious room for the 3 of us (2adults 1child). The view was awesome (we stayed on 29th floor). Near to airport. Free shuttle bus to the mtr (request schedule timings from the reception). If not take a cab and it only cost Hkd23. They even provide a portable heater for us in the room (very convenient during winter). The only cons is the loud noises made by China tourists at the corridor. So far happy with our stay.

We had a 9 hour overnight stop over in Hong Kong before flying out early morning, we chose this hotel as it was easy to get to for this purpose. We caught the MTR from the airport to Tsing Yi, its cheaper to buy 2 x one way tickets for HK$90 than 2 seperate returns so we did this. The journey took 20 minutes to Tsing Yi we then caught a taxi the five minute journey to the hotel. HK$23. The hotel is big, efficient and perfect for an overnight before going back to the airport, it had everything we needed so we didn;t have to unpack our bags, toothpaste, flannel, toothbrush, comb etc. Room was big, sheets were clean the view over the port was fascinating, we watched the cranes lifting and moving the containers from our 29th floor room for ages! There is a 7/11 convenience store within 2 minute walk in case you arrive late at night, we got pot noodles and used the kettle in our room to cook them. Only downside was the room was a little cold but the duvet was snug and we could have turned on the portable heater had it been that much of a problem

Reviewed 19 January 2012

Stayed at this hotel since there was some sort of convention and most hotels in Kowloon/Hong Kong Island were at ridiculous prices. As I had a late arrival/early departure from the airport, I thought this would be a good option.

It was very reasonably priced and location really wasn't too out of the way, about a 5-10 minute taxi ride from the Tsing Yi MTR station. From there its about a 15 minute ride down to Hong Kong Island, quite convenient actually.

The hotel room itself is bare bones, everything is clean but the room definitely looks a bit bare. Also, there was no internet access available in my room, not even paid access. If you wanted to go online, you had to go down to the lobby and there really isn't any spot where you can sit and do work. Views of the harbor from the rooms was amazing !!

The hotel manager was awesome, she was quite busy tending to a promotional photoshoot but noticed we were waiting for the free shuttle bus to Tsing Yi station. As the shuttle had broken down, she quickly got a taxi for us and paid the bill. Very quick and proactive on her part.

All in all this is not a bad choice for a quick stay in HK, or if you get an exceptionally good rate. Otherwise, you're better off choosing something more central or with more amenities.

Reviewed 8 November 2011

Our first encounter was on 4th November 2011, when we reached the hotel at around 3.30pm for our check-in, we were told that the rooms are not ready please wait. There is a bench infront of the reception counter and the lobby with chairs were cordoned off and no resting place for us a group of 30paxs with children who were tired after the early arrival and city tour. We waited patiently and was shocked when the bell-boy came to tell off some of the kids who were sitting on the floor and the manager gave us a nasty look as if we were some alients. In the end, our last batch to check-in was almost 5pm. Bad service on first day was our verdict.
Room service was also bad. We had 2 satchet of coffee and 2 tea for the whole of 4 days there with no top-up even though we used 1 of each on 1st and 2nd day and no coffees and teas for the next two days. Face towels was missing after the cleanup on 1st day and there is none for the whole 3 days after the check-out.
Last day was worst which was 7th November 2011 and we had an early check out at 10am and left our bags with the reception and proceed with our last minute shoppings and was back at around 4.30pm before the scheduled pick up time of 5.20pm. We proceed to the reception to collect our bags and thought of packing our last minute catch into our luggage ready for departure. After a long and tiring shopping spree, we thought we can sit around the lobby to do our packing, our kids were again told off by the bell boy to stand up and not to sit at the corner of the lobby. We were quite pissed off as all seats were empty and still being cordoned off and they just refused to let us use them. We were told to go to our pick up bus without even the help of the staff of the hotel to bring our luggage to the bus and worst off we had to put our luggage ourselves into the luggage compartment and worst of the manager can have the cheek to come forward and tell us to give way to taxis coming and not to block the road.This is the worst hotel we had tried in Hong Kong so far....
