Hk is easy to nagavate... no problems at all.. MTR exits are all clearly written.. and transport system is good.. frequency of train is much better than SG..

I stayed there too.. its big... got 2 queen bed in 1 room.. good for family... transport wise not very good if you ask me... but if u can take their bus then I think shld be ok cos its next to an interchange actually.. if take train must change here change there and walk quite a distance (5-10mins walk) from station to hotel...

If you ask me... I would choose a lousy hotel with good location cos I wont be inside the hotel 90% of the time I am at HK... so location to save time in transport (and cost) is much better...

how much transport fees can u save? MTR cost is very much like MRT cost in sg unless u r taking cab. how much time would u save if you r living in TST and I am living in Tusen wan l nina ,both meeting at Disneyland or lantau? I bet i will beat u to it. true enough , you wont be in the hotel most of time but you need a good bed n comfortable room to rest well.

I can tell you if you are visiting SZ for a side trip , disney and lantau , you will be nearer to those living in hk island , TST kowloon side. Very much depends on your itinerary. And those who love to party night-time , Tsuen wan is definitely out of action.

L hotel nina is only cheap for the time being and once the facilities are all up , you wont get to enjoy such cheap rates anymore. Take this opportunity to enjoy a comfortable stay with a fabulous view of city/sea with no regrets.

And alot of hotels , just because their address is in Kowloon, hk island.Their rates are very high. In actual fact , they are like 10-15 mins away from subway. Wat difference does it makes?

Just use Tsuen Wan West MTR(formally KCR) as your mode of transport , its a leisurely 5mins walk from hotel.

Stay near MTR.. thats the best bet.

if u stay in mongkok area, best is that anytime i tired can go back rest and continue hunting till 1am !!!

most good hotel is located in HK island... and HK island also good to visit for a cleaner environment.

Hunter? lol , what kind of meat are you hunting ?


Yesh u r rite. L nina is definitely not for shoppers or weak legs .
Hk island has a lot of good hotels and its rates are like roller-coaster depending on conventions and events.

ditto.

We always stay in TST. There are a lot of good hotels just off Nathan Road. Like those along Kimberly street.

BTW, there is one main diff between our MRT and their MTR. All their MTRs have very good, long and connected access to the above ground buildings. For example, TST MTR station alone has at least 8 entrance/exit from all directions of Nathan Road. (Our Orchard station is a laughing stock compare to theirs)

In fact, the YTM area could easily be the best area to stay for its connectivity and they are cheaper than those in HK islands.
