Where to Stay in Hongkong: Golden Crown Guesthouse

I always checked the reviews in Tripadvidor before booking our accomodations. That's why we ended at Golden Crown Guesthouse.

Back in 2007, when i first visited Hongkong, we stayed at Guangdong Guesthouse located at the infamous Chungking Mansions. Back then, the reputation of Chungking is not that good for some tourist. I was scared whenever I enter the building and elevators because of some not so good looking men outside selling various items. Their elevators where so small that can accommodate only 7 persons. I don't want my mother to experience that and I looked for another guesthouse. But I heard Chungking is different now.

I booked at Golden Crown Guesthouse located in 5th Floor, Golden Crown Court, Nathan Road. It practically accessible to everywhere because it's just next door from exit A2 Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station. 

The reception is quite small and we just waited for our turn at the small hallway. The staff/owner in duty doesn't speak well in English. Good thing one of the staff is a Filipina. They also have a strong free wifi.

Their rooms are newly renovated and the bed is so soft but the size were quite small. 

The bathroom in our room was clean. But the space between the toilet bowl and the shower area was so narrow.

The guesthouse also provided unlimited drinking water (hot and cold) in the hallway and clean towels & linen everyday. Another nice thing about this guesthouse is that they have a available discounted tickets for theme parks and other attractions in Hongkong. They even sell ferry tickets to Macau. But they only accepts cash as payment.

They also have universal adaptors in the rooms.

We had a nice experience with this guesthouse, we'll surely stay here the next time we visit Hongkong.

Please see the guesthouse website for updated price of rooms.
