Dorsett Mongkok (Kowloon, Hong Kong)

4 Case Rating


Location

Dorsett is situated about 5-10 minute walk from the Olympic metro station in Mong Kok. One stop to Kowloon whereby you can connect to all areas of the city.

Located on quite a busy road of which there are many small bars, restaurants, pharmacies and convenience stores located nearby.

The hotel does have a free pick up and drop off service to some locations.

Room

My room on 12th floor was quite compact but with a view.
Large mirrors and glass cabinets make up most off the decor. Not exactly cosy but functional.

The firm double bed was harder than expected but does offer flexible reading lights offered on both sides of frame.
There is one bedside table with a phone with one local plug socket.
Bed faces a small glass cabinet unit in which was ok for shirts but not for full length items such as suits or dresses- since it is short.
The unit offers a desk area but quite congested with many items on top of it, such as a kettle, an alarm clock with old iPhone socket charging capabilities & the mobile wifi charging station.
There is a refrigerator with some mini bar items. There is also a laptop size easy to use safe & facing the bed is the TV.
The TV is a bit grainy but offering 32 channels – these include a good balance of movie channels, international news networks such as BBC, Australian and RT plus many local channels.

The bathroom is in a glass unit within room, it is quite small & open though glass is frosted. Exceptionally powerful Shower offers both rain and hose versions.
Amenities offered are generous sized personal bottles of shower gel, shampoo & body lotion as well as dental kits. The room also has slippers, and in bedside drawers is a helpful plug adaptor and hair dryer.

Room has a decent dial AC unit that worked well and overall room was fine, not say premium but good value for money & for the most part clean.

Facilities

Free open high speed wifi that worked well.

The unique feature of this hotel is the personal hot spot mobile wifi phone unit that can be used out and about with your phone/tablet able to connect to wifi without any restrictions. This helpful android based device also offers a a guide to local restaurants, entertainment and shopping with google maps integrated. A nice item but don’t loose it.

The hotel does have a restaurant but didn’t use. There is a small gym as well.

Staff

Staff offer a good service at this hotel. Good level of enthusiasm & quite efficient.

Overall a decent enough budget Hong Kong hotel that actually offers good value for Kowloon. However it is not that comfortable, cosy or premium but is functional for a short stay business traveller.

The mobile wifi unit is a really a great unique amenity and great to travel about the city with without racking up using your own data roaming charges.
