Dorsett Far East Hotel, Hong Kong 2007 Jul 09, 2012
Having in mind that Hong Kong is a modern city, I expected the hotels to be really grand. Although I have been told many times that their houses are really small, I never expect hotels to be the same, especially when Dorsett Kuala Lumpur received quite good ratings.

To my disappointment, the room was so much smaller than I'd expected. With no proper cupboard nor table, we had to hang our clothes on a simple railing provided at a corner of the room. The two single beds were arranged so close to one another, my aunt and I had to take turns to walk through the ‘lane’. We, being ‘round-shaped’ individuals, find the room rather suffocating. With barely enough space to move around the room, we almost had to push our luggages under the beds!

Considering the limited size of the room, we couldn’t expect much of the bathroom. We almost had to turn our bodies 360 degrees just to get in and have the door closed. And it was not sound proof either. We would hear our ‘neighbour’ taking their shower late at night, so I presume they would hear us too. Nevertheless, they have quite a strong powered shower.

It seems that most of the ‘normal’ hotels in Hong Kong do not come with breakfast, nor any restaurants (??) as food can be easily found everywhere. Yes, I agree with that. The location of Dorsett is rather strategic as it’s near to bus stops, MTR stations, shopping malls and lots of ‘char chan thieng-s’ along the streets. The Citistore shopping complex is nothing spectacular if compared to Pavillion or Bukit Bintang, but was more like our Parkson or Metrojaya. But nevertheless, you could still get almost every basic stuffs needed.

This hotel is just average if compared to other hotels in Asia. But considering the high living cost in Hong Kong, it is considered affordable and acceptable.
