Hotel Name: Hong Kong Tai Wan Hotel
Address: Block A, 3rd Floor, Chungking Mansions, 36-44 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
I stayed at the Hong Kong Tai Wan Hotel which is a budget hotel/guesthouse accommodation in Hong Kong. It is one of the many cheap rooms located in the Chungking Mansions; a multi-purpose tower in Tsim Sha Tsui.
I booked this room on Agoda and picked it mainly for the price and location.
I’ve stayed in the Chungking Mansions a few times now so I know that you are basically getting a cheap box of a room to sleep in. The rooms are tiny and often don’t have a window. I booked a twin room as it was suggested for tall people that the single bed rooms would be too small. I did stay in a single once and I did indeed not fit in the bed. The bed I got here was also shorter than me, thus I had to lay diagonal across the double bed (or in this case a single and a half).
When I checked in I was given the option of a room with a window but a share bathroom, or a room with a bathroom but no window. I was only staying one night so I took the windowless box. I don’t like sleeping in a room without a window but I can make exceptions for a night. The twin room at least gives you the option of using the other bed as desk space.
