"Good hotel if you don't mind being a little a far"
We were here for a week and we enjoyed our stay quite a bit! The rooms are rather big for Hong Kong (maybe a little smaller than a standard US double room). Since space is limited in Hong Kong, it's hard to find a hotel with this much space and still under $100. The inside is much of what you'd get from any other hotel, although there are only standing showers in the bathroom and the elevators to the rooms is much smaller than the ones in America. The hotel itself isn't located near any MTR station, so it might be a little inconvenient to get to Central. If you're planning on visiting the University of Hong Kong, it's only a 10 minute walk there.
We enjoyed three nights at the Mercer. The room and facilities are excellent with great beds and linens, the breakfast very good, and the hotel very quiet and peaceful. The included mini bar was a plus. What we especially liked was the location. It is minutes walk from the metro and the Macau ferry but also away from the commercial downtown area. It is located in an area filled with local businesses, especially many "local medicine" shops selling all kinds of herbs, snakes, bird nests, etc that was very interesting to browse through. We would not have seen this area if we had not stayed at the Mercer.
Very nice and clean hotel with complimentary breakfast, plenty of choices ----- fresh fruit, cereal, bread,tea/coffee plus cooked breakfast. The staff are very helpful and courteous . The hotel is near the MTR, tram and buses, all within five to ten minutes walk. It is very easy to get to Central,
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay. The restaurants are much cheaper than other areas of Hong Kong.
We had two complimentary tickets on the Peak tram while we were there.
