There are several buses that run from the center of the city to Ap Le Chau, but at rush hour one can expected to queue for up to 30 minutes. Alternatively, with the cheap & efficient taxi service one can expect to pay about $70HK, $10 USD to the hotel.
The room itself is very small but has all the amenities one could ask, like free bottle water, refrigerator, toiletries, slipper etc. Bed length is only 5'6", which may not be suitable for some westerners.
We stayed at Cosmo hotel for 3 nights and I must say that this is the best hotel we stayed so far. We're on the 25th flr so we had a nice view. We had breakfast included and the best part of it was they have handy, a cellphone from our room that you can bring anywhere you go. You can make phone call locally and even international! It is with wifi so you are always connected and it's all free while you stay. I already recommended it to all my friends. Thank's expedia!
I arrived at the hotel before check-in, but was still able to get my room key. I was told that I could leave my luggage with the concierge and that the room would be ready at 2:00. Later, when I went to my room, I found that it was very clean and tidy, and although it was quite small, it was comfortable. Everything in the room looked new and was in good condition. The water pressure in the shower was very good. As for the location, it suited me very well - the hotel is in an interesting neighbourhood and is quite close to the subway.

This hotel is the first place I would look at if I was to return to Hong Kong. Two minute walk to Central MTR, around the corner from the bars and clubs of Soho. Request a room on a high floor and get the bonus of good views over Hong Kong. We stayed at the Butterfly for two nights also and it didn't come close to this place.
I chose this hotel because it was near the Hong Kong Expo Convention Center, where I was attending Art Basel, never having been to HK. It was close the convention center and the price was very good, and the reviews were good. I thought it was a terrific place. Room was clean, new, and quiet. Everyone had to use a plastic key to use the elevator, which made me feel like it was secure, and there is a snack center on the 5th floor open all the time with newspapers, TV, coffee, and cookies, and croissants for breakfast. I would stay there again.
They allowed me to check in early without fee. Staff were very helpful, especially the concierge. Rooms were on the small side but it suited me at the time. My 'cityview' room on 18th floor was of a concrete wall but I just needed a place to sleep for the night. Hotel is close to ferry, buses, taxi's are easy and it's less than 5 min to subway. Many restaurants in the area as well as of course the Wan Chai area - the hotel is in an excellent location. Checkout was a little slow while they checked the room and minibar (which I did not use) but that would be as close as I would come to a negative comment, everything else was excellent.
