Silka Seaview Hotel Review

I found Silka Seaview Hotel when I Googled "hotel near night market and toy shops". I booked it via Agoda at less than P3,000 with no breakfast. I have stayed in Kowloon and Mongkok area in the past but I am not familiar with Yau Ma Tei District, where Silka Seaview Hotel is located.

I am happy I booked this hotel because I made my husband happy because it is an easy walking distance to The Secret Base of Hot Toys and  In's Mall where John bought Gundam.

Coming from Macau, we took a bus and MTR to reach Silka in about an hour, including the time we got lost looking for this hotel. Though we got lost, it is actually very easy to find. It is a 30-minute drive from Hong Kong International Airport. Located in the Yau Ma Tei District, the hotel is a 5-minute walk from Yau Ma Tei MTR Station. It offers easy access to Mongkok, Nathan Road and Tsim Sha Tsui, where shops of various items abound.

Victoria Harbour can actually be seen from the top rooms. I like the location of this hotel but the front desk staff are not friendly. The room is too small with old bedding. They offer free wifi but I didn't get to try if it has fast connecting ability because I used my rented pocket wifi. Our room was not cleaned very well because we found used plastic bottle a used paper bag in the side table drawer. The  mini fridge also smelt bad.

Although they have a complimentary local area shuttle, we didn't get to utilize it because we decided to enjoy our walking tour of Nathan and Mongkok areas.

The front desk people should be replaced by the housekeeping staff because the two lady housekeeping staff we met are far more suited welcoming tired and confused travellers with their friendly and warm attitude.
