I was on my way to a big conference in Macau in July 2014 and decided to have a one night stop in Hong Kong.
My choice of hotel was all about the best price with the most inclusions. I also prefer staying on the Kowloon side.
I got a very good rate thru Travelcube and the rate included Buffet Brekkie and free wifi.
I arrived very early at the hotel due to early arrival of aircraft but did not book early check in.
The girls at reception were great. They offered me a key to the gym to go down and get a shower (gym is small but would be functional for a small workout). I had to wait a few minutes for them to clean the showers as other guests had just done the same thing, but no drama, the fact they offered this to me was wonderful.
They said I would have a priority for check in as I was an agent (which was really nice) and to come back about 11am. As I walked out after my shower, it had started to rain but I decided to keep wandering. I sat on the step of a bank for about 30 mins people watching, and then headed back at about 10:30 and a room was ready.
I had room 702 which was a superior room- it looked out on to Kimberly Road.
King bed and delicious white linen. 
The decor is interesting but funky and I liked it. In room safe as well.
I didn't use the smart phone but probably should have. 2 complimentary bottles of water.
Buffet Breakfast was good. Lots of different things including fruit, cereal, hash browns, eggs, bacon, toast etc.
Interestingly, however something I was not aware of was that the hotel takes a $500HKD deposit per night on your card. This was not in the conditions thru Travelcube, nor on my voucher. This is something the hotel needs to advise to the wholesaler but is not a negative as all hotels take a deposit of some kind, I just like to know what it is.
A lovely hotel that I would put my clients for a stopover for a couple of nights. Great location, within walking distance (15 mins) of Star Ferry, 10 mins from Jordan for Temple St Markets, smack bang in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Definitely recommended.
You can get the train from the airport and then the connecting shuttle drops you right outside the hotel door- all for $90HKD.
