The Wharney Guang Dong Hotel Hong Kong
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
... Kong is compared to Beijing. And western style bathrooms everywhere. Although more crowded, it did not feel the same as it does here in Beijing. Maybe because I could communicate with most of the people on the streets. Hong Kong is like a cross between New York and London. Small island with lots of people, who all drive on the wrong side of the road and sound so proper when they speak. Just loved it!

Historical Traveler Reviews The Wharney Guang Dong Hotel Hong Kong
Being the budget travelers that we are, we choose the Wharney Hotel for it low prices and central location for our 10 day Hong Kong vacation in early January. It is also one of the few hotels that allow children under 2 years old, and we had our 1 year old daughter with us.
We found it very good value as we needed 2 rooms as a family so it saved some money for other things like tours we booked from the Tour desk.
Good Budget Hotel
Not wanting to spend a fortune on a hotel which we only planned to sleep in, we have just had 9 days at the Wharney.
The rooms are small and in need of modernisation, although work was going on at the time of our stay. Rooms on the back don't have a view but they are quiet. Worth noting because Whanchai is very busy at night.
Didn't use the restaurant but there is a brand new basement Scottish bar - The Canny Man - which serves a huge selection of whiskeys and good bar food. Definitely worth a visit.
Don't stay at the Wharney if you want luxury, but for value for money it's hard to beat.
The hotel is clean, although the rooms are a little tired. The lifts are chronic- they only hold about 4 people, and it was virtually impossible to get a lift between 8 am and 9.30 to stop on the 8th floor. The staff are very friendly, and the breakfast is pretty good.
Great hotel with good breakfast in a convenient location
I stayed at the Wharney for 3 nights and the only complaints that I would have were that the elevators are very slow (annoying if you're staying on the 21st floor!) and that the swimming pool is quite small. However, the rooms were a reasonable size and comfortable, the hotel is just 5 mins walk from an MTR (underground) station, and there are loads of good restaurants and bars within 2 mins walk. Contrary to the other reviews of this hotel, there is a restaurant which serves breakfast, and it serves a good mix of Chinese and Western foods (including baked beans and waffles). I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed here from March 2nd and left on the 10th. It is not the best hotel in Hong Kong but considering how cheap (BA were offering special Hong Kong deals and we paid £88 total for 8 nights) we got it for, I was quite happy overall.
Good value in a central location
I have stayed at this hotel many times due to its central location in Wanchai and the reasonably priced rooms. Recently (autumn 2004) the reception has been revamped, but the rooms remain the same. A bit on the small side and no spectacular views, but clean and equipped with everything you could want except for a safety locker (but I think this is only the case in some rooms). Don't expect anything extraordinary, but the staff is courteous and you get a free newspaper every morning. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant and doesn't offer breakfast (but there are cafes nearby). Recommended if you are in Hong Kong for the sights and not for the hotel.
