One of the cheapest hotel rooms in Tsim Sha Tsui is the junior suite single room in the Tai Wan Hotel, but even with rock-bottom prices, we found that this hotel is not very good value for money. The rooms are small and numerous guests have complained about the uncleanliness in the hotel, including inside the rooms. There have also been reports of customers being ripped off whilst staying at the hotel, their rooms being given away after making a booking, and other horror stories.
The only good thing about the TWH Tai Wan Hotel is the location, which is in the Middle of Tsim Sha Tsui. There is no other positives about this place. We heard that one customer here even had to call the police simply to get charged the correct room rate. The only people who would stay here with no squabbles are the ultra-shoestring backpacker types, who are on a tight budget and can take care of themselves staying at a place like this.
If you want to stay at a one or two star budget hotel or guesthouse, that is cleaner, more secure and with better service, we recommend the Paris Guest House. Paris is reliable and has great customer reviews to back it up, we really don’t reccommend staying at the TWH Hong Kong. Just take one look at some online customer reviews of the Tai Wan Hotel, this should be enough to warn you off!
