***THIS HOTEL IS RUNNING A SCAM*** - Wan Chai 88 is running a long scam as presenting itself as a 4-star hotel but has at best 2 star conditions in their rooms. The location is convenient but if you are hoping for rooms properly maintained and cleaned then you are out of luck. My family had rented 3 nights in November and found the conditions (even after changing from one room to another) so unsatisfactory that we needed to leave after one night. If you are considering this hotel, please consider your tolerance to hygiene. Problems we encountered - mildew and obvious soap scum in shower and bathroom - debris (tissues, rubbish) found under bed and furniture -dust on surfaces and cracks - bed is not secure and moves - tap loose in bathroom - poor maintenance to previously broken items in room. We confronted the hotel on site and through our booking agency but they have so far refused to acknowledge their poor maintenance and will refuse to refund should you need to leave. They do no provide proper housing as promised upon booking. *BEWARE*

Stayed 3 night so far and another night to go, I personally liked the spacious room, convenient location, the view and the bath tub that’s why considering long stay next time ( January 2024) unfortunately they don’t do long stay due to all the exhibitions going on. What a shame! To be honest, we didn’t feel like staying in a hotel at all, felt like a service apartment. Each floor comprises of 3 apartments so it’s quiet in my opinion. Ground floor is the concierge, there is one member of staff during the day and two at night so we felt pretty safe. The reception is situated on 3/F with a refreshment bar which I really like to get some fresh milk for my Earl Grey tea. The downside was really the lifts, they are pretty slow.
