Hong Kong Standford Hotel Review20 November, 2009
Having reviewed one of the worst accommodation in Hong Kong, let me share with you one of the better hotels in Hong Kong – Stanford Hong Kong. Located at the heart of Mongkok, it served as a good pitstop from hours of shopping at nearby Tung Choi Street Market (Ladies Street). There are lots of cafes and even a cinema (showing just 2 Cantonese movies) around the hotel.
While there is limited walking space in a Standard Double Room at Stanford Hong Kong Hotel, the cool view of Hong Kong’s environment and the spacious writing table more than makes up for it. However do take note that the small bottle of water on the writing table is booby-trapped! It will cost you HKG40 (almost S$8) to drink it!
The beds are really comfortable and the LCD TV offers a number of cable channels ranging from HBO for the latest movies to ESPN for the latest sports update. The hotel package we bought also included free Wi-Fi – just bring your laptop, get the network password from the hotel reception and you are good to go!
Remember the HKG40 water I told you about? There are actually 2 complimentary bottles of mineral water in the toilet! 🙂
The shower and toilet facilities are pretty much what you would expect from a 3-star hotel. What’s unique is that instead of providing you with bottles of shampoo and bodywash, Stanford Hong Kong hotel had combined hair soap + shampoo + shower gel + conditioner into one solution available from a dispenser in the toilet!
We rate Stanford Hong Kong hotel:
- Location (10-min walk from nearest MTR): 4/5
- Facilities (free Wi-Fi, Lift, comfortable beds, cable TV): 5/5
- Staff (helpful and friendly): 4/5
- Cleanliness: 5/5
- Value (HKG 350/pax/night – affordable): 4/5
