Safe.clean.near to subway. Walking distance to halal food place.And they loan you a 3g phone so you may use it on the road and covert to hotspot wifi device. Conclusion i would recommend this hotel to my friends, family even to ppl that i dont even like.
We liked the location. It was between 2 metro stations, so very convenient.
There was a good variety of shopping. It was mainly exclusive shops at the mall near our hotel, but there were also street markets if you walked the other way!
The service was very good. We didn’t eat in the restaurant so couldn’t say what the food was like.

Offering excellent value, this budget hotel is located in the Wanchai district of Hong Kong Island, midway between Central …More
Hotel was comfortable, clean, and half a block from the metro. It was also just across the street from a historic temple, and 2 blocks from the jade market and the Temple street night time market. Breakfast was fine but had to laugh when they advertised sausage and it was actually hot dogs. Only complaint was that the beds were really hard.
The Pottinger is in the heart of Hong Kong. Just walk out the front door (Stanley Street) and you will be in the center of the HK universe! Also, remember that the hotel is NOT on Queen Street; not sure why that address is even listed. There is no Google street view of the hotel facade, but it is adjacent to the stone steps. The hotel has a fast elevator. The staff were always very willing to help with touristy info. Very friendly! The room was super clean. The only complaint we have is that the breakfast service in the restaurant was very slow...not enough servers/cooks apparently. All the adjacent construction noise we had read about had ceased when we were there. The subway station was very close. There was a fairly close bakery also that had wonderful egg tarts (the best in the world)...as you walk out the front door of the hotel, turn right and go a few blocks and ask a local where the Tai Cheong Bakery is...maybe the hotel staff would know the specific location...we asked a local. The hotel also had a Nespresso machine in the room. We would stay there again...location was really great.
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.
This hotel is just off Nathan Road in the heart of Mong Kok district. It is convenient for experiencing vibrant Kowloon's delights such as the markets and street food, and is only a few MTR stops away from Admiralty/Central for the CBD. Hotel staff are friendly and even provide you with a welcome letter with a business card for the hotel manager attached. My room was small and basic, but very clean and tidy. For those that have stayed in Chungking Mansions before, staying here was a huge step up.
Pretty clean, there is AC in the room, and only 2 things wich are not so good, but it's ok: water in the shower every time changes temperature: or it's cold or it's too hot and another is: after 10 pm main doors close and you need to up to the mountain for another entrance because location of the hotel is in the mountains...
