This time round at Hong Kong, we stayed at a service apartment in order to save cost. I was kinda skeptical when I was booking the Causeway Corner as I didn't really find many bloggers writing about them (in fact, none!). But since its comments on Tripadvisor was pretty decent, I decided to give it a try. And boy am I glad that I gave it a chance!
First of all, and surprisingly, the room size is actually as big as some hotel rooms, no kidding! We can even open up two suitcases at the foot of that huge comfortable bed! Facilities wise, the room comes with a microwave, an empty mini-fridge, kettle (but no tea or coffee so you'll have to BYO), safe, LAN cable and... wait for it... FREE fast and furious WIFI!
Since this is a low budget service apartment, don't expect a bathtub lah. But still, the bathroom is spacious and the shower area is definitely big enough to move 360 degrees! One thing though, I don't like the smell of the shower gel. But that can be easily solved at one of the many Watson shops.
Finally, and most importantly, the location. Seriously, I don't think many hotels can beat the Causeway Corner's location. From the airport, we took the Airport Express train to the Hong Kong station at Central, then took the free shuttle and alighted at Excelsior Hotel and walked over in about 5 minutes. QED. The Causeway Bay MTR Station C exit is literally across the road from the service apartment, and there're two 7-11 shops nearby. Food wise, we're spoiled for choice. There're numerous cafes and restaurants around the area, and even a dessert shop downstairs! Oh, and there's even a supermarket across the street. Now try beating that!
