Bottom Line

The Mini Hotel Causeway Bay Hong Kong is a budget hotel that offers a hostel vibe with limited extras, but rooms are clean and private. The lobby is charming and artsy with lots of hangout space and a 24-hour front desk, but there are no other property features and no breakfast service. The 196 rooms are modern but truly tiny, with wood floors, white walls, and transparent shower cubes with faux marble accents. Beds tend to take up most of the rooms, and entry-level rooms may not have windows. Amenities are surprisingly well-rounded: flat-screen TVs, electronic safes, hairdryers, electric kettles, and free Wi-Fi, but there are few toiletries. Travelers looking for budget prices that don't mind a hostel environment could consider Yesinn Causeway Bay.

Oyster Hotel Review

Mini Hotel Causeway Bay Hong Kong

Scene

Stylish, affordable hotel with artsy lobby lounge, but few other frills

The Mini Hotel Causeway Bay Hong Kong is situated in a modern high-rise with a grid of windows on its facade. Decor inside is eclectic and trendy with moody lighting and artsy accents like pop-art prints and walls of framed photos. The lounge is roomy and playful, with the feel of a glam, fashion-forward hostel. A concrete floor and exposed-pipe ceiling offer industrial flair that pairs well with eclectic chairs (molded plastic, upholstered patchwork, cowhide) gathered into sitting areas. The long wood table here offers guests a place to hangout or relax. But with few amenities and no other common spaces, this is a hotel for guests who want to spend more time out of it than in it. With tiny one- to four-person rooms, this property attracts a range of budget-minded guests, from backpackers and solo travelers to couples and small families.

Location

In bustling Causeway Bay neighborhood near businesses, shops, and restaurants

One of the hotel's best features is its central location on Hong Kong Island in the lively Causeway Bay neighborhood, a popular business and shopping district. Restaurants, bars, malls, and retailers fill the area, and Lee Gardens shopping is just a few minutes walk. Victoria Park is about a 12-minute walk. There are also plenty of public transport links nearby. It's about an eight-minute walk to the Causeway Bay MTR station, with bus and tram stops even closer. The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre is about a 10- to 20-minute drive, depending on traffic. Hong Kong International Airport will take 30 minutes to an hour by car.

Rooms

Stylish but truly mini "capsule" rooms with modern amenities

Rooms here are stylish and still fresh from a 2014 rehab, but they're truly mini with as little as 75 square feet of space for the smallest solo rooms, and not significantly more for doubles. Wood floors meet white wood paneled walls (accented with mirrors to make rooms feel larger), and bathrooms are just clear glass cubes planted in the rooms themselves. They're modern with faux marble walls and walk-in showers, but offer little privacy. Not all rooms have windows, but those that do are bathed in natural light thanks to the windows' large proportions.

Rooms have no desks or wardrobes, but they do include thoughtful and modern amenities a step above the usual budget spot, including 24-inch flat-screen TVs, hairdryers, kettles, electronic safes, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. Towels, linens, and shower gel are also included, but other toiletries aren't, though they can be purchased in the lobby. Smartphones were at one time being provided for guests during the length of stay, but as of mid-2016 the hotel had stopped lending them out. Family Rooms are available for up to four guests and some rooms have tiny balconies. Guests occasionally note noise issues due to thin walls.
