    « Nothing more than a 1 star hotel »

    Check in staff very rude. We reached at 12pm were asked to wait till 2 pm. If we agreed to 220$ more per day we could get the room at 12 itself. Fraudsters. I refused to pay anything extra. Room size is so small and stuffy. If you have 2 bags then there is no place to move. The toilet has foam bath without a tub. The bed mattress spring was hurting. The breakfast area was made in corridor near the lift. Only one staff managing the whole area for 40-50 seats. He was trying his best to do everything quickly. The breakfast chaffing dishes were dirty. The glass plates were slight broken. No variety of a four star level. The entrance to the hotel is not good. Many warehouse loading and unloading goods. Will never stay again.

    « Convenient Location will Offset the Size of room »

    Outwardly a little akward building with an entry away from the mainstreet and the mainlobby at the third, this Hotel is perfectly catering the travelling crowd with priority on finding a stay near and around HK city life. A no thrills place which cristallises the old saying, location, location & location. You only need to step outside the hotel (and around the corner) to be immersed to the HongKong life just like the locals do. Take it as you like as positive or negative but somehow you are here so better embrace it just the same. Better look for luxury somewhere else, but be also at the same time be prepared to pay yourself silly, this is for people who understand that while sleeping you see very little besides your dreams.

    « Not worth the cost »

    This hotel is in a reasonable position, near times square MTR station (about 5 minutes walk). The hotel rooms re very small even for Hong Kong, there are no wardrobe, just a coule of hangers on thge wall. The bathroom is tiny & there was no shaver socket in the room. The reception staff were unhelpful, slow & extremely miserable. They seem to take a perverse delight in ignoring me when I was checking in & out. I have stayed in Hong Kong many times & this is by far the worst hotel I have stayed in. I had great hopes as I have stayed in Best Western hotels in the US and UK & always found them very good.

    tiny room and bathroom but clean and serene. decent price on its class. location a bit hidden. but close to mtr stn causeway bay. lots of food nearby. fast check-in and check out. would like to stay again on my next visit.

    « Horrible service and dirty rooms »

    My wife and daughter arrived 6 hours before me at midday as my plane was delayed. The staff would not let them check in and were very rude, even to my two year old daughter whilst she was playing in the lobby :( the rooms are tiny, old, dirty, noisy and they smell. Please do yourself a favor and don't stay here.

    « Great location in Causeway Bay »

    The location of this hotel is great for exploring Causeway Bay. My room was the smallest room I've stayed in ever, and expensive for the size. The staff were very friendly. If you're desparate to find a hotel room (which I was since the city was closed down for a typhoon), this hotel is fine for a night. I wouldn't recommend staying here otherwise, unless you comfortable sleeping in very small spaces.

    « Great location, small rooms and average breakfast »

    Can't really compare to other hotels in Hong Kong as it was my first time there but we had a twin room which barely had enough rooms to put 2 suitcases down. Shower/toilet is small as well; however it is in a great location as I really enjoyed HK island plus there are a couple of great local seafood restautrants just down the road. Buffet breakfast was a bit disappointing too. Would probably stay there again just for the location.

    « Business Trip »

    Not value for money, room are exceptional small and the cleanliness is below expectation. Lobby was cramp and there is no clear queue line for checking in or out. While you are on queue, there are lots of people just approached the receptionist for numerous reason thus the waiting time are long. Nothing much to talk about but they served a decent breakfast which was outsourced to a Japanese Restaurant within the building itself. Location wise is the only thing you can look forward as it was close to MTR and withing walking distance for foods and shopping at CWB.

    « Crazy views from the top... »

    We were surprised by the amazing room we got.... on the top (39th) floor there are about 4 rooms as well as a little hotel plunge pool. Apart from the insane views over the Island skyline we also really enjoyed the room. It is very small but had absolutely all we wanted for a night.......even a jacuzzi!

    « Reason why I carry a small bottle of alcohol »

    Pro: By HK standard, the size of the room is adequate. Location wise: Its actually a nice location in terns of variety--you get to be within walking distance of the high end stores (Times Square) but the flexibility of having an outdoor market for cheaper fare..so in a way it is best of both world. MTR and bus stops are walking distance but the hotel itself it located in an alley. The free shuttle buses of airport express doesn't go through this part. I like the open market and small restaurants around the area..feels authentic HK If you don't like a smoking floor, you have got to ask them. I kept forgetting that HK still has smoking floors and the thing is, staff do not ask for your preference. So we got stuck in a smoking floor and was too tired to ask to be moved. Bathroom - it has a small tub which is great. However the water closet is located in a very tight space..so may be an issue for some people. I always carry a small bottle of disinfectant for emergencies..and this time I had to make good use of it. The water closet (toilet) smells like urine. It seemed clean, but the smell suggests otherwise. One inconvenient feature of this hotel is the fact that the lobby is at the 3rd floor, which meant you need to take an elevator to the 3rd floor and transfer to another elevator to get to the rooms...So during peak hours you need to wait for 2 elevators.

    « Disappointing property - dont waste your time here! »

    Booked this property due to its location - but don't fall for this trap. Huge mistake - realized the moment we walked into the entrance, which was from a back alley. The reception is up on the third floor. Rooms are really tiny, they don't have any moving space, especially if you are two people. All room amenities are on the window ledge.. not even a desk to keep the water heater, and tea/coffee stuff. We were so disappointed at what we saw that we forfeited our deposit amount for the night, and made a run out of the front doors. Thankfully, got another reservation at a good hotel. I am not really a luxury traveler myself, and don't mind a great bargain at the hotels I am booking, but not at the cost of basic comfort or satisfaction. But I guess, to each their own! It is really a budget hotel - meant for those who only need a place to crash for the night, don't expect to have a comfortable stay if you decided to go with it.

    Coming to HK for many years and tried Best Western for first time. We could barely get the suitcase in the room.Then we couldnt get into room as the key wouldnt work. They said try coin!!!!. What did we pay HK $1000 for???? Never again. Back to Butterfly.

    « Budget hotel with good location »

    It's location is quite good - 5 mins walk from Causeway Bay shopping area. Recption is on 3F. It has a tiny room, tiny bathroom and almost nowhere to sit except the bed. The mini desk is not working at night without light. Merely OK for a sleepover.

    « Disappointment for a foreign BW »

    From the garage-like entrance to a wonky WIFI connection, this property is just mediocre. Tiny fridge that hardy works, limited TV channels with poor reception, hooks rather than a wardrobe; I could go on and this was supposedly a deluxe room. Sad to say this about a BW.

    2
    « Best Western, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong »

    The first thing you should know is that the rooms are very small compared to normal hotel rooms. The bed takes up to 70% of the room. This should give you an idea of how small that is. The hotel can be a bit tricky to get to as well. If you have large or heavy suitcases, please insist that your taxi drive drop you at the entrance! This is because the the entrance is in 2 alley ways with the lobby being upstairs on the 3rd floor.

    « Horrible hotel »

    Even with a cheap deal under hkd500 a night it is not worth it. -rude staff at check in. Simply asking for a non smoking room trigger a "we are very busy ah cannot" and a huff and a puff. I know HK is not known for its hospitality and service but come on you work in a hotel. -room dirty, bathroom mouldy. -room size is small even for HK. -bed horrible. Literally sink into it and feel the springs in your back. They really need replacing now. -location is in a dirty alley. -hotel appears to be used by ladies of the night.

    « Compact Rooms »

    The hotel is good. But very very small rooms, which I understood that's the style of Hong Kong. I found difficult to stay many days as the rooms are very small. Location of the hotel not very satisfactory but although its it. One side of this location is good. We enjoyed most of our meals in a Thai Restaurant down town.

    « Don't go to this hotel! »

    Super small rooms, no space to walk or to put suitcases in room. Staff don't care! And do not speak English. Worst bathroom ever, It's not a hotel maybe a hostel!! Expensive you can find better price in Hong Kong.

    « Great Views »

    Made my reservation for two nights, arrived, asked for an upgrade, ended up on the top floor in one of the special rooms with an amazing view. The Bali room on the roof is probably the best room in the whole hotel. In my experience, I had good service, despite some of the reviews. I did have a bit of a hiccup in trying to pay - as I had been told on the phone one way and prepared to pay in an uncommon manner, only to have to make a few phone calls to arrive at a different option than planned. But that was made up for in the location and the quality of the room I stayed in.

    « Great Location, nice stay! »

    We stayed two nights here during our stay in Hong Kong. We had a smooth check in, and all the staff we very polite and helpful. The room was small, but that's to be expected considering the location. The view was fantastic. Very close to things and easy to get to transportation. Would stay here again.

    « Terrible Staff Worst Experience Ever! »

    This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had in all my years of traveling. After a very long day of flying I just wanted to check in my room and sleep. I was informed by the staff that I could not check-in because one letter of my name was misspelled and I would have to call my booking agent to change the reservation or lose the prepaid room, even though I gave them my passport, drivers license, and credit card used to book the room!! I couldn't believe my ears after arguing for one hour and calling the booking agent overseas at my own expense the staff finally let me in my room which was old, very small, not cleaned well, and smelled of cigarettes even though the room was nonsmoking! I called the staff for assistance and they couldn't have been less helpful and downright nasty. I can't believe a hotel chain would employee such rude and disrespectful staff. This was a complete nightmare. Never again!!

    « Nice hotel, very clean and pleasant stay »

    Stayed there with my wife for one day. It was a very pleasant hotel, staff was a bit slow towards checkin, but they finally managed to give us a room. The rooms are very small, and seemed as if they for just travelers.

    « value for money, swimming pool »

    Location is great, just walking distance to causeway bay where you can do shopping etc. Room is small and a bit old. Lower floors don't have good view. Has all the necessary amenities like kettle, coffee, hair dryer etc. Swimming pool is nice though.

    « Good value for money, perfect location »

    The room is quite small, but all budget hotels in Hong Kong do have small rooms. It is near the Causeway MTR station, near the shopping places like Times Square, Sogo. There are many good eating places nearby - you can choose from the cheap HK noodle restaurants or those in the malls. I ate at Ippudo the last two times I was in HK. It is walking distance to Ikea at Park Lane. From the airport, you can take the Cityfyer bus A11 and get off at Stop #12. A bit if a warning : the hotel collects HK$500 as deposit upon check-in, but you get it back upon check-out. They offered to charge the deposit to our credit card, which they said would be credited back in a few "weeks". We thought it less complicated to pay the deposit in cash.

    « Value for money »

    The hotel does what it promises to do which is value for money,rooms are clean and neat and housekeeping always on time,check in was flawless and quick by english speaking staff who I found a great help.Rooms are rather dated but if on a budget they will do hotel in a rather nice part of town near mtr station and bus routes there are cheaper places but not for the location and safety factor,cant say much about meals I chose to eat out always plenty street stalls and restaurants around the area.

    « good location . might be over priced »

    The location is the main benefit you get if you stay in this hotel. the room i stay is very small. but good quality . daily breakfast is average . but their service is very good . i believe this hotel is not worth for the money you paid. but according to the country the price may acceptable

    « Good location with great value »

    Stayed for 4 nights in the hotel. The hotel is located at the back lane of the road. If you take a bus (A11) from the airport, stopped at the fire station of Wan Chai and walked approximately 10 min from Hennessy road, you will find the signboard at the end of the junction. Turn right, you will see the hotel entrance and the concierge at level 1. Take a lift up to level 3 where the reception located and we completed our check-in process within 10 min. Took another lift go to our room located on high floor. Prior to arrival, I had made a request for high floor and double bedded. Both request were fulfill with no question ask. The room size was small but just nice for both of us with not much luggage. It came with nice view and has all basic amenities that we need. The bathroom came with long bath which I don't expect to have it. The hotel located in a very strategies place. Just 5 mins from Time Square and MTR station. 10 mins from Causeway Bay Sogo and shopping district. There was a wet market located just right to next to the hotel where you can get very cheap and fresh fruits everyday. A food court located in the building of the wet market selling super delicious roasted meat rice during day time and at night turn into "tai pai tong". Before departure, we met a very helpful bellhop who help us to book a coach back to airport. Staffs of the hotel are nice and helpful. Check-out process was short and sweet, just completed within 2 mins where allowed us to catch our coach on time. Although some bad reviews were written for this property but I would highly recommend this hotel for those traveller who have mid-budget on the accommodation for its service and location. The only bad point of this property was need to take 2 difference lifts before stepped into your room.

    Find somewhere else to stay. This place is a dump. Hot water isn't very hot. Room is about 8 x 8. The bed reaches almost to the wall. Shower is about 4 sq ft. I will never stay at a Best Western again. This is a one star hotel. Not worth more than 35 usd a night.

    « Boutique hotel »

    Much like a New Orleans boutique room - small but functional. Decor helps with the smallness of the room but view from 3511 was harbor view as well as CCC club and Happy Valley Racecourse. Very close to MTR and Times Square.

    « Very very small room »

    For real the hotel is not worth the price because of very small size of room + huge noise inside and outside the hotel (noise isolation is lousy); service people are not kind at all either Only good point is wanchai location that we appreciated much :-) But still not worth the price :-(

    « Is this..THAT Best Western Hotel ? »

    Staying at this hotel with other member of delegation from Indonesia for Hong Kong Gift & Premium Fair 2016. The travel organis=zer pick this hotel for the location : near to HKCEC. MTR is 5 minute walk. there are lots of food store, fresh fruit market and other shops. For me it is not the best hotel I've stay in Hongkong. The room is small, even for Hong Kong standard. I've been stay in bigger guest house in TST area. The shower hose is broken, so that the water pouring out from the head shower, also from along the hose. However the room and bathroom is clean enough. Wifi is okay. Breakfast is fair. For 5 days staying the menu is the same : porridge, beans, sallad, and bread. Coffee is to thin. I've stay in some Best Western hotels in Indonesia which is more-more-more better. Well, It's okay for mass-business-travelling anyway :D

    « Not for everybody »

    "Best Western Group-Largest chain in the world"-Ground Floor Advertised.3rd floor sign "Independently owned and managed" i.e. don't expect actual Best western standards. 2 non smoking rooms booked same floor (My daughters room)- Received 1 smoking room and one non smoking room supplied with ashtray!!!! The hotel smelled old and even the so called non smoking floors reeked of cigarettes. Rooms very small and no wardrobe or anything to keep your clothes. Refrigerator was big enough to fit 3 small cans and a packet of M&M,s. Room safe locked once then decided it will stay open for the rest of our stay. Ok bed was knackered and left me with bruises on both hips while sleeping on my side. Tv picture was like a snow storm so did not waste any more time with it. A sheet for curtains that could not be opened to at least let in some light. Bathroom was very tired and quite mouldy in places. So there you have it, spent 4 days there for a birthday treat to go back to HK. I don't recommend this hotel unless you are accustomed to all of the above.

    « Internet barely works »

    Do not stay here if you're traveling for business and need the internet - it barely works. I don't understand how hotels can charge $100 USD a night and not provide a stable internet connection. It's 2016 folks, you need to get this correct. Also the rooms here are tiny and not worth the price. The windows, bathroom, sheets etc are all dirty and dingy. I have pics to prove it as usual. My usual hotel is the IBIS Sheung Wang and I regret not booking it again for this trip just to save $30 a night. For $30 more at the IBIS I could've got a spotless room with wood floors that is 3 times the size, a breathtaking harbor and Kowloon view, very fast internet and cleanliness. I've learned my lesson and won't take another risk again.

    « Horrible! »

    From reviews read before visit, my friends and I were excited to stay at the hotel as we heard it was a good hotel in an awesome location. Location was incredible. Close to the MTR, Times square, great shopping, happy valley racecourse, just brilliant. However, upon our arrival we were greatly disappointed. Firstly we had been greeted by a Janice L, who seemed like she had been taking a nap in the reception room and who showed us no respect. She was unfriendly, rude and had trouble explaining things to us. She had also, placed 2 couples in two twin rooms and wasn't very cooperative when we asked her to join the beds together. They did such a poor job at putting the beds together that they may as well have kept them apart. Secondly the elevators, reception and rooms were freezing with the air condioner turned up to the coldest temperature. As hong kong was a short stopover before our summer holiday in Vietnam we hadn't packed much warm clothes. The room was so cold that we had to sleep in sweaters and jeans. I had called reception to ask if there were any heaters or extra blankets that could be brought up to which Janice rudely answered "we dont do that, but you would have to call housekeeping" after thanking her and saying "not a problem" she took a deep breath and said "don't worry I'll do it." The blanket took about 1 hour to be brought up. The next day seemed a bit better as there had been two other much, much friendlier staff on duty. I asked for another blanket and they brought up a small heater free of charge. The heater literally saved our lives. We had been greeted by Janice again at check out and she again was rude, unfriendly and uncooperative once again. The hotel itself was small and the bathrooms very tiny. It actually saddens me to write this, as I myself am a travel agent and like to give everyone a chance. I wouldn't normally do this, but the it was an awful experience. Unprofessional service and disppointed in the fact that we had to freeze in our rooms. Will not recommend this hotel to any of my clients.

    Stayed for Business trip. Room was small, but it was sufficient for the nature of the trip. Location is also good as it is a 5 minute walk from Times Square and the MTR Station.

    The rooms are so small that it will make your dorm room look like a palace. Bed so hard that you you feel like in prison. Bed size is not suitable for any person over 5' 4". There are far better places around for the same price. This place has ruined the Best Western name and I will certainly be never making this mistake again.

    « Tiny room »

    I know Hong Kong is famous for small areas but this hotel truly gave the worst and the smallest room I ever had in Hong Kong for a 4 stars. The staff was ok as intentions were there but not competencies. We kindly request the Concierge to call a cab for us, he asked us to go out and find it ourselves. It was not an unexpected behavior coming from hotel staff! The hotel entrance is also very badly located, very dirty and not easy to access. Location itself was great in Causebay Bay, 5 minutes walk from Time Square, very central.

    « Good location but cramped space, average service & cockroaches in room! »

    Stayed for 2 nights. We were in HK very early and went to check in, the official check in time is 2pm, I had enquired about earlier check in, they said no, it would be chargeable by another night stay. As we didn't want to carry along out luggage in the day, we went to check in and leave our bags in the concierge first. If booking portals tell you it's 3 min from the Causeway Bay MTR station. Don't believe them. Exit A of causeway bay station towards Time Square has an extremely long spiraling walk. Be prepared to walk at least 10 min (fast walk) just coming up to ground level. Then it's another 10 min from the exit to the hotel. It's quite well located, just go under the flyover , on the left about 5 minutes. In a little alleyway but before that you can see an arrow sign "best western". There's like a wet market selling fresh pork or fruit/veggies just nearby plus eateries and cooked foods. You won't go hungry. It's also very close (all walking distance) to major shopping malls and streets. Pretty good location. The check in is on the 3rd floor. Which is quite a hassle. The service is curt and speed more than courtesy is important to them. Don't expect the concierge or "bell boy" to help you much. After all HK does not practice tipping and it's a cheap hotel. As the concierge told us, carry your bags to your room yourself later when you return and get the room number from the check in counter. Wifi in the hotel is only ok. Quite slow. Sometimes it can't even connect or load pages even though the wifi signal is shown. The room is small. Beds size ok for average sized people. Don't expect any much space for luggage. We brought only small luggage and it's already very cramped. The bathroom is small too. Don't expect to do any major back scrubbing as there's hardly any space to move arms. Just sufficient space for an average build Asian person. I think it might be hard for a Caucasian as generally larger than Asians. It was already cramped for an Asian. The sink was outside the bathroom near the door for my room. Pros and cons about that. But I felt it was ok. Terrible things about The room - IT HAD COCKROACHES!! I killed 2 when I was staying there. One each night. I don't know how many others there are!! We only stayed 2 nights so we didn't want to trouble moving to another room. Also, didn't feel the service would be friendly about this. The first cockroach was killed near the tv area and second one near the bathroom. Argh. The bed is slanting down on the right. Sloping down. I can feel I'm sliding off the bed. Same for the other bed my bro was on. We don't understand why it's slanting but it is!! We were very tired during our HK stay (walking a lot) so we just crashed when back in the hotel. Average rating 'cos it's cheap for its location. If below S$150 you can consider. If above that, forget it, go stay elsewhere. The peak /off-peak seasons and time of booking will affect pricing so choose wisely!

    « Good surprise »

    After we booked with the Best Western Hotel Causeway bay, I read so many bad reviews about it, that I regretted have taken the risk ( we booked non refundable room ). But we got a really good surprise, they upgraded us, and all what we asked we got( higher floor, non smoking, double bed). The weak point of the hotel is the breakfast. The dining room is not very pleasant and the choice was not great. Hope they will improve.

    best western causeway bay seems to be typical mid-range HK hotel; good enough, I think, for a few days stay, like in my case. I decided to stay there, and choosed this particular hotel from lots of other similiar, mostly beacuse I guessed its location would better fit my plans and also I found a good deal for a upper floor room with breakfast. Having arrived I received exactly what I was looking for - decent "base camp" for exploring the metropolis big pros: - convieniently located in a busy downtown disctrict; trams and subway within a 5-min walk - nice views of the city from the upper floors - clean and not so aged furnishings minor cons: - tiny rooms - awfully noisy AC (at least in my room, earplugs a must-have) - basic breakfast - basic / cheap taste furnishings - entrance in a smelly back alley

    « Best Western A Comfortable Stay »

    We stayed four nights in December and found the hotel to be quite all right. A basic room, clean and comfortable but very small. The location is fantastic, close to everything in Causeway Bay and a 10 min walk to the metro. Good value for the money. The only drawback were the hotel staff (don't expect any service with a smile) and the free breakfast (yuk). But, well worth the money for the location.

    « Not the best stay in HK »

    rooms are a bit cramped with no shelving for baggage. Had to leave that on what little floor space there was. The food on offer was terrible. Synthetic sausage meat, runny scrambled egg, everything was on the cold side, servers were empty on both visits, had to wait for refills, kept running out of food quickly, only orange juice available nothing else. There are much better hotels around for the same price.

    « Great Location, Bang Average Hotel »

    So first to the positives - Great Location - Hotel is in the Wan Chai district close to Times Square Hong Kong which is cool! Wifi is fast and easy to use, Hotel has a concierge facility and an easy check in. Now to the negatives - Hotel's flyer is basically a garments factory or run down apartment building so when you get to the hotel you think you're at a dump, the hotel rooms are very very small, if you're a tall semi muscular adult the shower will be impossible to navigate around and the room cannot be more than 15 square meters, I got stuck in the lift for around 45mins so that is a major concern, Hotel charges a 500 dollar deposit which no one tells you about when you're booking and lastly the view from the 16th floor is non existent - you basically pay to see the back of run down apartment buildings. Being said - this hotel is apparently cheaper than the ones around it or in the area. So if you're not a fussy tourist and just care about the location - you have a winner. Or else - look at some other options Being said this is Asia so your chances of finding a Western hotel are minimal from the word go

    It is a good Tourist Hotel in a very noted busy location. Dollar for dollar, though the room is small but it is considered it's kind of self-contained and efficient. I surely would recommend my friends to stay in future.

    « Some problems but overall very decent. »

    First room we were given smelled smoky (even though on a non-smoking floor) and had a moldy shower curtain. Second room we were given was much better, though it had two twin beds they pushed together instead of a double, but then when we went to freshen up found that the sink did not have any hot running water. After that was resolved (fairly promptly) things were fine...until the next night when the WiFi for the hotel stopped working for an entire evening. If it was just one of these things I would chalk it up as a slight annoyance or inconvenience but with one thing after another my husband and I started noticing all sorts of issues. The fan(s) in the bathrooms are extremely loud, even when everything else is turned off, there is no way to turn the bathroom fan off. The hallways and the lifts are extremely muggy and not climate-controlled, which feels cheap. The beds we had were lumpy and sunken in. And it is not the most convenient location to get to from the China Ferry Terminal (ferries serving Mainland), it takes 2 buses with a 15 minute walk in between to transfer...not easy with all our luggage plus up and down several sets of stairs too. But happily, it is only a short walk to the airport bus, the A11 is about a 6 minute walk away and only costs $40HKD (approximately $5USD). The good stuff is that the location is great otherwise! We had some great views out our window, we could even see the harbour from our room. The staff at the hotel are friendly and work hard to be helpful. And there's tons of stuff right outside the door to do, see, buy, and eat. It's right near several tram stops and the trams are a fun, cheap source of transportation. One of HK's great cooked food markets, Bowrington Food Market, is steps away (walk down the street, ignore all the hawkers pressuring you to eat at their place, walk into the market building, take the lift to the 2nd floor and step out into the chaos) and serves food daily from 10am-2am. Shopping ranging from the high-end to discount, boutique to indie to chain, are all within a 10 minute walk or less. The Metro could be a bit closer but it's within a reasonable distance. Overall, the lodgings came in as a solid B but with a little more attention to the facilities and services it could easily earn an A.

    « claustrofobic? then dont book this one »

    This is a fine hotel, with reception @ floor 3 and a further 37 floors of functional but very very tiny rooms. Everything is in these rooms, but if you need space, this one might put you to the test. Housekeeping is friendly and speak English, rooms are clean and tidy, absolutely not noisy. In short, perfect place for a 1-2 night stay. Advice: breakfast? Try outside in one of the many coffee shops in the area. ideal place for bookings under HKK 950/night.

    « Avoid »

    Had a superior room. Superior to what? Under the freeway? Tiny and i mean tiny. Barely room for 2 peoples carry on luggage. Bathroom ridiculous ly small. I know HK is crowded but this place claiming the prices they do is theft. I wonder if BW know how bad their name is tarnished by this place? Positves were a fast wifi which was shocking to say the least. It broke down on the 2nd night and i unformed the front desk to be told that it was a provider fault. To her credit, she phoned back a few hours later to say it was back on so i give some credit for this but no way would i EVER go back.

    « Life Lesson »

    MFW... trip advisor reviews are so so bad and your company travel website says this is the only hotel you can book due to cost level and you don't solicit the next spending level... Life lesson. This place is as bad as a roadside JinJiang inn in rural Wuhu China. Nonfunctional space besides bed. Bed is acceptably comfortable. Aircon works okay. Location is actually a positive. The hotel absolutely gives off a nasty sticky seedy old-sweat hasn't-been-scrubbed don't-worry-breakfast-is-only-$5 kind of vibe. I don't like giving weak or poor reviews but this place is powerfully substandard -- made painfully more so when the concur booking rate is factored in.

    « Worst best western ever »

    Do not go here, the concierge is so rude. The room is too small and the elevator system is too slow, every morning more then 5 minutes for going down to the ground floor. But the worst thing, as I already wrote, is the rudeness of the concierge. Not a 4 star hotel at all!

    « Tiniest hotel Rm I ever saw »

    Good location, but room tinier than in Tokyo, no room for a closet, only 1 hanger each on a hook. Space under the bed for a suitcase. Says non smoking but ashtray in the rm. Breakfast limited but dining staff wonderful and theylet us bring own fruit from the market. (No room for fruit eating in the room!) It's functional if you don't spend much time in your rm and don't have much luggage.

    « Dreadful »

    It was booked by a travel agent and prepaid otherwise we would have left. Intermittent Wi-Fi, no bedside lights. Very small room. Needed to keep toilet for open a strange clear glass window into the ensuite bathroom. Poor advise from concierge. Breakfast is odd. Difficult to think of any redeeming features. Good view from the roof top .

    « Below best western standard »

    Good location, Not far from subway. This hotel is maybe Good enough for tourist stay but below best western standards. Staff Not really helpful and rooms are super tiny. Breakfast is a bit poor. Overall medium hotel, normally Best westerns are high-level.

    « Perfect location and price-worthy quality »

    I chose this hotel because it's a chain hotel and the location is in downtown Causeway Bay, and of course for the cheap price. I stayed for 3 nights and only booked 2 weeks before my trip. I asked for a room in a higher floor wishing to take a better look of HK and the concierge was friendly and generous to upgrade my room to their highest floor. Some complaint about the room size, but c'mon it is HK, the space is more expensive than gold. If you give bananas you can only hire monkeys. know what i am saying? So I hv been prepared to see a small room. But the bed and pillow were comfortable to me. The hot water was hot enough and strong enough. The night view from the highest floor is astonished. Wifi is free and fast. Concierge staffs were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend people who travels alone or backpackers to stay here. But if you are traveling with your family, especially with elders or children, pls pay more to stay at a better, bigger hotel. Do not hold the unrealistic expectations.

    « Worst hotel in town!!! »

    I have done a big mistake to book this hotel. It's really old, rooms are so small that you can not even stay inside with one luggage...I have booked a so called "superior room city view" and has nothing superior nor city view. Avoid it as hell!!!

    « If not for a great deal, better stay somewhere else »

    Checked out from some other hotel, went to the airport, but could not travel back home the same day. So had to book an additional night. Was looking for something more affordable than my previous shelter. And I found an excellent deal on some other source. That's how I ended up at this hotel. Arrival experience left much to be desired. Did not get king size bed (it's fine though). I was even informed about it. I still got my non-smoking room (it's kinda important). When I entered the room I realized I was given an accessible room (no mention about it at check-in). I was fine with shower, but not with wash basin. You see, I'm a tall fellow, and the wash basin was set on my knee level, haha. But again, I was there for like 10 hrs, so it's okay. That was the smallest room I have ever stayed at. I usually prefer IHG or Accor hotels, it was my first experience with BEST WESTERN. The linen wasn't the whitest as well, although obviously clean. The AC seemed to be a bit noisy, but I was too tired to pay attention to it, haha. It's also kinda odd that you need to change elevators in order to get from ground level to your room's floor. Never seen this kind of arrangement before. Although the impression is rather negative, still kudos for Front Desk staff for being polite and helpful. I'm just happy I got a great bargain, otherwise I'd be pissed, true story.

    « Great bargain for the price! »

    Decent location, nice lobby and great view from our room on the 31st floor. Perfect place to stay if you only need a night or two in HK. Otherwise, you may begin to feel a bit claustrophobic. But it is a good value for what you pay.

    « Go somewhere else »

    First let me start by saying you are better off going somewhere else. We asked for a non smoking room and floor. We were meet in the room by a cleaner spraying the room down with air freshener and an ash tray on the bed side table. The bed was horrible and the shower did not drain. We called down to the front desk for multi things an ironing board that never came and toilet paper which took almost 40 minutes. No one seemed to like there job. The price might look good on the internet but just spend the extra bucks and go somewhere nicer.

    « Check this hotel and compare with others. »

    We had a four night stay here in September 2015. Hong Kong is particularly humid. I feel that there were a couple of positives..1. We arrived quite early, i.e 7.45am. We were checked in and only waited till 10.00, definitely a big thank you for that. 2. The staff other than the desk staff, i.e concierge , breakfast man and cleaners were all very pleasant and helpful. That's it....I am disappointed that Best western is affiliated with this hotel. I was warned that space would be at a premium, however here it is too the extreme....our room on the 28th floor, had two beds filing the room. No table, no chair, no cupboard! Really small bathroom but serviceable enough. No room to put your suitcases. One little bedside table between the beds. Hate to say it the room was musty, dated and the mattresses were in all honesty the worst myself and husband have ever slept on..or tried to sleep. There were springs digging in to back and hips, roll over and nearly fall out because of the softness. The springs made an horrendous sound when you rolled over, like groaning and pinging. This room could be delightful..it just needs a new double bed ensemble with little tables on either side..perfect! I heard a lot of other complaints too. Also if you are considering breakfast, for $HK110 you can do better just down the street. The breakfast was lack lustre, boring and tasteless. The tea was pretty good though. I read that a lot of people said good location, I am not so sure, yes it is in a very busy market district with loads of buses nearby, but the MTR is a bit if a way down through a very upmarket and huge shopping complex..Times Square. The Jacuzzi is a little pool on the 39th level that gives great views of Hong Kong but that's it. We managed to get used to our little room, but many times I thought about and looked up other places, but they were expensive, so I guess if you go to this place with some knowledge you will not be shocked. The Lobby enters from a very ugly lane way ..lots of rubbish and trucks loading etc. but around the corner there are markets and some local restaurants. The Hong Kong people are very polite and orderly. We did have a good time out and about, and if our room and or bed was a better it would have been perfect.

    « Average hotel, good price for HK. »

    We stayed here for two nights with our 6 month old baby. The room was small but we had booked a small room so it was to be expected. It was mainly bed with some floor space. There was a few places to put our luggage but we travel light. It had a kettle, drinking water, safe and toiletries as well as in room WiFi. We stayed in room 3709 and the view was amazing. We used the jacuzzi on the roof one evening which was lovely to unwind in after a day of sight seeing. Yes the entrance was on a back alley but it came alive into markets and restaurants at 5pm which we found nice. It was close to times square which has an entrance to causeway bay Mrt. My only major concern was the window pane between the bedroom and the bathroom. I mean is that really necessary to have to watch someone showering?
