A March 2003 trip
to Hong Kong by Elginah
Quote: We took a flight from Xi'an to Shenzen and then a speed boat to Hong Kong. We then spent 5 days in the city.
The lobby was pretty open and the check-in lady was very helpful. There were not that many non-smoking rooms, so we opted for a floor on a high level--hoping for a view.
The room turned out to the smallest hotel room I've ever encountered in my life. It was definitely a room for one. There was hardly any space to hang up clothes, let alone leave one's suitcase lying down. This was a standard-size room.
Otherwise, there were the usual: (tiny) bathroom with freebies, comfortable bed, desk with compact office space (TV/PC with Internet access), refrigerator, kettle with complimentary tea and coffee. The TV was oddly placed--I couldn't lie in bed and watch without an extra pillow.
There was not much of a view, either--just the busy side streets of Tsim Sha Tsui.
All in all, it was okay for a few days, but more of a businessman's room than a vacationer's.
