i was wondering whether to still blog about HK trip which was errrrr 10 months ago :/. procrastination is my middle name. seimou. and since i have the picture and some leisure time now, why not? i did blog about HK but unfortunately everything was pooof GONE thanks to him. so yeah, blog all over again, if memory still serves me good la.
i went to HK for 5D4N (18th – 22nd Sept 2011) together with my bff, kikilala (not real name). it was the first time we both, the notorious blur queens, travelled oversea together. we did get lost here and there, spending muchy time finding our way :/. luckily we came in one piece, each. i am berry looking for our next trip, next year most probably! and we consent that my boyf can come along this time because we need a portable tripod. hehe.
so, during our 4 nights there, we were staying at this Hello Inn. since we were on budget (wanna save more moolah for shopping hehe), and only both of us, inn was the best option. i searched for accommodation through tripadvisor and found Hello Inn, ranking number 1 inns in Hong Kong. i exchanged few emails with the owner, Ivan, enquired about the room we wanted. and then we wired the deposit of 750 HKD to him.
we arrived at around 2130. Ivan wasn’t around but he informed us on to-do upon arrival via email.
was pretty surprised at how small our Deluxe Double Room is. but then, the following days we realized, this was just enough for us. cos by the end of the day when we were back to our room, we showered, then admired our loots and slept. i can assured you that it fits two HUGE luggages at the tiny walkway beside the bathroom. in addition, the room was clean and tidy, equipped with the minimal necessities including wifi, shower heater, air-conditioner, and tv.
small yet complete bathroom.
some satisfied tourist left some sweet notes on the board. and some generous ones gave out discount vouchers. we didn’t take any cos we couldn’t afford the bags that cost our arms and legs even after the discount.
that’s Ivan! only met him on our last day as he was admitted to hospital for some check up. he is really really friendly and even walked us to one Japanese restaurant as we were confused with the route. we secretly cursed that why didn’t he appear earlier? that would save us a lot of time, finding our way. haih direction idiots we are seimou.
Hello Inn is also berry strategically situated!
at Tsim Sha Tsui station
take the Exit D2
and you’ll see this Mirador Mansion. walk straight abit and then you’ll see the lift at your left. there’s a security guard sitting in front of the lift so yeah, is secured.
Hello Inn is located at 6th floor!
i would definitely stay here again if i visit Hong Kong next time.
