"Convenient locaton, not too pricey... but it's busy"
Stayed here for the weekend in July 2016. It's an older hotel which they've re-fitted out the rooms. As it's a larger hotel, it can get quite busy in reception, the foyer and lifts. Budget wise - one of the cheaper options in one of the more expensive cities of the world. Location is great - opposite Happy Valley Racecourse, a 5 min walk back to the main area of CWB shopping. Only thing it can be a bit tricky for taxi's to stop at, if they don't know the main lobby area - so you can get dumped on the main road a small distance from the hotel. Rooms - sizing is not bad, I had a room with a view over the race course. From memory the windows are not double glazed so you can hear traffic. The rooms however have that ever famous damp mildew smell, with of which the flooring in the rooms is carpeted... July in HK cannot be helped, it's HUMID CITY. The hallways all had dehumidifying machines running. Breakfast was included in the room rate, but it's a bit old school - you share tables and its not the best spread. Free Shuttle - the hotel does offer a shuttle back to central, wanchai pier and some other locations!
"Jan 2017 3 nights stay"
Last minute booking so nothing much we should complain as mostly you have to take what is still available at the price you want. For approx. 100USD per night incl. breakfast we think it is a bit pricey for what you get. Rooms on the backside are really small (no problem though for us), but clean. Only negative thing is the view from the back, nicely on a hill that is designated as a graveyard. Yes on the left you can get a glimpse of the horse race track of Happy Valley but the overall graveyard is dominating. Breakfast was disappointing because the place is just to small for the numbers of rooms they have (you may expect to wait to be seated) and the food offered is ok but limited. To the end of the breakfast time (the last hour or less) some things or finished and are not being refilled as they didn't have the particular items anymore. People at the reception were very friendly and very helpful though, as was the clean room.
"Plesant stay. Staff extremely helpful. Excellent service. Good value."
Very welcoming staff, smiling at all times. Servicing special requests. Good service of shuttle to central locations in the city. They provide you with a mobile with free internet and local calls. Breakfast staff very helpful and attentive. Service from staff 100%. Really impressed. Very reasonable prices. Centrally located in one of the central neighbourhoods close to all transport and attractions. I definatelly recommend it to everyone.
"The Hong Kong Cosmo"
This is our third time at the Cosmo. The mid range room in the hotel we had was very small with basically no wardrobe but I think this is fairly typical for HK and generally you’d be paying a lot lot more if you did want a bigger room. As we were sightseeing who cares as we only slept in the room anyway!. Speaking of sightseeing the hotel provides a free smartphone allowing for mobile internet, and free international calls. It came in handy for booking a few restaurants and finding out where we were when we got lost in Kowloon! Some of the facilities at the Cosmo could do with a bit of an upgrade… the TV (OK we did take some time to get ready before we went out and so had the telli on) was a bit old, the remote volume choosing to work when it wanted and the safe didn’t work when we got there as the battery was flat (same thing happened previous year I think too). To be fair they got that sorted within 30 minutes so… There is breakfast available at the hotel but we found this very expensive and there are other options available nearby. The hotel is near the racecourse and the bus stop for the Peak and the resorts on the south of the island, such as Stanley and Repulse Bay. It’s a little further on for the underground and falls between two stations, nearest one being in Times Square around 15 minutes’ walk. We are still confused by the online mini bus timetable and slight disarray at hotel pick up times.. Do we need to stand in a queue' will someone ring a bell (as they did with another shuttle)' How come we are last onto the bus but we were first to queue for the bus' We commented on this last time but there seemed to be no improvement. That said at least there is a service ,which we used there and back to Central train station (allowing us onward travel to the airport via the express train and in city check in!) which other hotels won’t have So I think in summary we’d probably stay somewhere else next time we go to HK
Stayed here in November 2013 and we where really happy.great location near the tram and a two minute walk to Wan Chai. Would recommend this hotel. The rooms where very clean and average size for Hong Kong. It was a very clean hotel and reception and hotel,staff where very polite and helpful.
