The Holiday Inn Express Mongkok is located not far from Nathan Road in a vibrant, residential part on Kowloon. I visited Hong Kong during a time when protests had been occurring across the city but I saw no sign of demonstrations and felt quite safe all the time during my 4 night stay. My hotel must have had low occupancy as I saw very few people in reception or the breakfast room during my stay. This was very sad as Hong Kong is such a fantastic city to visit and it doesn't deserve to be deserted by international travellers. Hong Kong people have a bit of a reputation of being unfriendly but this was not the case at the Holiday Inn Express Mongkok.The reception staff were very friendly and accommodating, the housekeeping staff did a great job servicing my room and the staff in the breakfast room couldn't do enough to be helpful. My room was an ok size by Hong Kong standards. The bed was huge and very, very comfortable. The rooms decor is a lil' dated and could do with an update but was still clean and functional. I experienced no problems during my stay and Im sure if I had, it would have been attended to promptly. I would have no hesitation in staying here again. I only hope that next time the hotel is full and tourists are again swarming to this amazing city.
