Lim,

There were a couple of answers already to the thread you created earlier posing the same questions :

Id personally choose the salisbury over any of the others...the location is amazing and they have lots of activities down at the YMCA....

you'd be more likely to see real HK people there...
you'd be close to MRT and KCR Tsim Sha Tsui stations
you'd be close to the Star Ferry
you'd be close to the water and the avenue of stars
you'd be closer to Mong Kok which is far better for shopping than Tsim Sha Tsui
you'd be closer to the Ocean Terminal and the China-HK City Ferry terminal.

Cheers, m

I think whether the rooms are small is not important, coz most of the time, u will be spending time outside, and only come back to sleep. I would go for location (within easy reach of location I want to visit), rather than the size of the room.

I heard the room are really small but I noe all of them are small anywayfriend, the last time I was in HK it was peak season (Buddha's Birthday, 1 year ago) and I spent HKD1200 for two nights in a beautiful closet...with an attached bathroom...and cold aircon and tv...at the Mirador Mansions along Nathan Rd. (slightly less infamous than the Chungking Mansions).

actually the room was 12 floors up, over the sidewalk on the east side of Nathan Rd....there was a southbound window which gave me a small view of the Island....the elevator was slow and outside the place was really grimy

but I am sure that I spent less than 6 hours per day in that room, and that includes sleeping and showering....with HK at your feet, why stay indoors......

Cheers, m
