Eaton Hotel

We managed to get this hotel at about half it's published price by approaching them directly via email:

Because of the discount, we opted to spend the extra saving on a better room. We chose a deluxe room that had floor to ceiling windows going in a curve around one end of the room. Considering the price we were paying the hotel did seem very luxurious.

Staff were polite and friendly, rooms were clean but signs of wear and tear were beginning to show. We were glad we had a safe in the room and we never touched the mini bar.

While I was there it was my 30th Birthday. Although I never mentioned this to them, when I returned from my days shopping, there was a bottle of wine and a card waiting for me. It was a really nice touch.

The breakfast buffet was nice but it got a little unoriginal towards the end of the trip. I'm not sure the food was worth the money but the lack of hastle sure was. I made use of the hotel bar's happy hour but after this, like everywhere in Hong Kong, the drinks got expensive. The nightly live music was also a bit intrusive but on the whole not bad.

The hotel has a business centre with free internet access but I never got round to using it. The rooms also have broadband connection for laptops.

The hotels air-con was fierce. The lifts were like fridges but sometimes this was a life saver. The room air-con was much better and very controllable.

This hotel is perfectly situated to see Temple Street Night Market and is close to Jordan Subway station, so getting around was never a problem.

I would recommend this hotel and would stop there again (if I was lucky enough to go back to Hong Kong).
