Hongkong MK Hotel
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
As soon as I arrived at Hong Kong International Airport at night, I just headed for Hotel MK to check in, located near the subway station of Mongkok. The quarter around the hotel was crowded at night, filled with food stalls and street booths. Although I knew there were some diplomatic problems between China and Japan, the Chinese general citizens …
... out. Waited outside with our huge bags for the shuttle bus to take us to Hong Kong station. For the price of an Airport express train ticket, you can actually check in your luggage for the flight at the train station. So we checked in our heavy backpacks - crossing our fingers in the hope that the next time we would see them was in Cairns tomorrow - and headed out to discover what the Hong Kong city had to offer.
Didn't really sleep well and woke up with an anxious feeling in my head.
"Oh no, I hope the typhoon UTOR changed its track and deviates from Hong Kong!!!"
I was praying as I checked the Hong Kong Observatory first thing in the morning.
Big bold warning sign "TYPHOON 8 hoisted" was right on my face when the webpage was finally loaded.
(For those who are unfamiliar with the warning signs, typhoon ...

Along the way on the tram, there seemed to be several places that looked like bus stops. We wondered if anyone could take the tram just part of the way up since there were lots of homes along the way. We never stopped though, so I don't know. We were met at the top of the peak by our ...

Just ok hotel
Stayed there on April for 3 days. The standard double bed room is away too small for 2 people with 2 luggage. From 6th floor we can still hear loud noises from the street until early in the morning. I had good rate from hotelclub--- at about USD 60/night. We cannot ask for more for April as it is a high season. Just OK hotel, cannot complain more. (Wish could book directly to a motel in nathan road from a friend in hk. He said the rate is only USD 30/ night.)
Biggest Dump in Asia
Warning, never ever I repeat never ever stay at this Hotel. Don't even consider it. The rooms are so small there is nowhere to put your' suitcases the bathroom is less than 75 cm wide and dirty. We stayed on the 4th floor above the park area of the Hotel and it was noisy until 4 or 5 in the morning. The Hotel staff are next to useless and only understand English when it suits them.
We had an early mornining (5.0 am) check out and we had to carry all of our luggage along the first floor and down the narrow stairs as the outside entrance door was locked.
At $98 US per night it is not even fair value. Would have to rank as one of the best dumps in the world book of dumps to stay in.
Never again !
I was aware that the rooms were small, but I at least expected a window or two - None! The staff were friendly but not very helpful. The location is awful and constantly has dubious people hanging around the entrance - Our taxi driver refused to park down the same road as the hotel entrance!
Good hotel accomodation for a fair price
I stayed at the Tatami Hampton hotel last week and had a very good time there: reasonable in price and in the heart of Kowloon. The room was ok, fresh linen every day and I had my own bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. The hotel also has a nice terrace and the staff is kind and helpful.
Cheap basic accomodation, good location
I stayed in this hotel for a week around Christmas/New Year 05/06. Booked a single standard room.
The room was small, had a TV and air conditioner. Bathroom was basic but functional. Cleanliness was acceptable. Location is great, particularly given the great public transport and relatively cheap taxis in Hong Kong.
Would recommend this hotel to those seeking basic accomodation and a good price.
The rooms are ok if you are travelling lone BUT if you are chekcing in as a couple its really a bad place to stay. Small is an understatement. The toilet is so small you cannot shower without making the whole place wet and I mean that includes the potty area. The walls are thin and the fire alarm goes off at 1 AM for no reason.
What can I then say that is good? Location is excellent. Shopping and eating is just 2 mins away and there is a 24 hour internet gaming centre just next door which also means you get access to email.
Won't be back though....
Will stay there again next year
We stayed at Tatami Hampton end of october. It is pretty accessible by bus A21 from the hongkong airport and within walking distance from the mongkok mrt station. Convenience to go to other places.
Stayed there for 4 nights in a double room which have windows, basic facilities like tv, water kettle, good aircon system with hot water shower. No doubt the room is a bit small, we have difficulties storing our barang barang and luggage. Beds are very comfortable with clean bedsheets which makes us feel like home. There is housekeeping service available in the hotel. The furnitures are mostly ikea style which is simple. For prices that the hotel offers, it is acceptable and good enough for their facilities and services. We will stay there again on our next visit in hongkong.
Hong Kong's hotels are all very expensive, therefore the cheaper ones only provide a minimum of service and equippment (like in New York). Hotel Tatami Hampton is located in Mongkok (Kowloon), which is a very busy Chinese district, and not as modern as the famous districts on HK Island. Upon leaving the building you're amongst pure Chinese life, which can be attractive and annoying as well. Of course it's more inviting!! The hotel is exactly between two subway stops, walking to either of them takes you approx. 5 minutes. Very close is Nathan Road, a main street in Kowloon, which never calms down and offers all kinds of shopping and retail facilities.
Do not go here
On no account book a room at this hotel. Room was 6 by 6 with no windows. The bathrom 'facilities' were a toilet and a sink - NO shower, No bath - it gets kinda warm in HK and if you can't wash you're in trouble. The bed linen was filthy, the air con didn't work and there was a beetle playing chicken across the floor when I walked in. Hopefully I add a photo to this when I get back home but if you are thinking about going here - do yourself a favour - DON'T !
