West Hotel May 03, 2009
This was definitely a step down after leaving the Renaissance but it wasn't supposed to be of the same caliber. I was here one night before leaving for China proper.
The hotel is situated in the central area of Kowloon a bit away from the main tourist area but still close enough to the main action (Temple Street Night Market is very close by).
There is a small lobby area for checkin and then the rooms are situated about 6 to a floor in a small high rise. Elevators are very small and cramped (and only two of them so you might be waiting a bit if there is a crowd). Second floor (or first floor depending on if you don't consider the ground floor the first floor) has a small lounge with 2 computers with internet access.
Rooms themselves are sparse and small but comfortable... except for the beds that is. Not sure if it was my bed or all of them but the mattress was like a solid brick.
The bathroom like the room was quite small (I actually had some difficulty trying to close the door behind me when I entered. And the showerhead was defintiely not designed for a 6'1" westerner.
All in all you could do much worse though than stay here. The staff spoke some English so it wasn't too bad to check in/out and they had left luggage service so I could go out for a while before having to catch the train and leave my stuff behind.
