Hongkong free and easy : The Cityview HOngkong Review

My second time staying at cityview. 

1.It is just a minute walk away from Yau Ma Tei MTR station
2. There are eateries, supermarket around the area.
3. It is not super crowded like Mongkok or Tsim Sha Tsui, walking from MTR station to the hotel is slow down by human traffic.
4. It is 5 to 10 minutes walk to Mongkong. Just walk out from the hotel entrance. There is an alley opposite OK shop. It is an alley but not dark or quiet. Just walk through it and you are at Mongkok.

I choose to stay in the Premier Room. It is newly renovated so everything is clean and nice. The room  is quite spacious for Hongkong standard. It is impossible to get this room size and location at Mongkong or Tsim Sha Tsui. My room has a nice view of Hongkong island. However, it depends on where the room. Photo below Can put a request for it if you want a nice view. There is free wifi too.

The Premier room comes with free breakfast. Selection of food at breakfast is not a lot. There are cereals, salads, breads, fruits and 3-4 chinese cuisine. The food run out quite fast so be early or there is not much left. The Cafe is very pretty. Photos beloewThe Premier room also comes with a free phone. The phone has free wifi and map so you can use it to do your research.  It can also be used to make phone calls, however, the procedure to make a call can be quite troublesome.

And connecting rooms are available. Good for family trips.

The only problem I have is that they do not have a check out counter. Therefore, if everyone in front of you is checking in. It will take quite some time for you to hand over the keys and leave. We ask if we can just pass the key and leave. Hence, we queue half an hour to pass the keys and walk off.

A nice newly renovated place to have breakfast. Selection was not a lot but the place was clean and everything looks fresh and good
