The best hotel in Kowloon. This is my first trip to Hongkong and I booked it based on the reviews online. I'm completely satisfied with the service and the hotel is absolutely amazing. It is very close to the train station too.

We were upgraded to a room with a hall which we are grateful as otherwise I wont have space to open the 2nd luggage. I love the smart phone which was loan by the hotel that allow us to make international calls FREE! However most hotels provide super-single bed for twin sharing room.

The room had a smelly smoke odor, very dirty carpet, and the shower tub is too narrow to stand on. The twin beds in the room is a smaller than a western twin size beds.

The hotel is in a truly conveniently location - just a few steps from the Ya Ma Tai Station. There are two places for hot meals right opposite the hotel. The room we had was nice although a bit small, but that is common in Hong Kong unless it is in a 4 or 5-star hotel. The reception staff were...

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
