    The location was good because it was very near from Maxwell Food Centre and China town station. I stayed in woman's room and the rooms were clean and had a locker under each bed, so I could keep my baggage there.More

    Staff stayed on duty for my late arrival. Great location, pleasant atmosphere. Only drawback is the "capsule" nature of the accommodation, second night I had a noisy neighbour! No fault of the hotel, just one of those things!More

    Chinatown
    Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
    sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
    sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
    blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
    Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
    almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
    continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
    the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
