Requested a non smoking room, but were given a room on the smoking floor. Could smell the cigarette smoke, however it was not too overpowering. Rooms don't have harbour views, but the location is good if you want to stay on Hong Kong island. Lots of bars nearby and eateries.

This is not the Conrad, Marriott or Shangri-La but at less than half the price (most of the time) it is a very good option for saving yourself some money when visiting Hong Kong unless you plan on spending your entire day in the hotel. The hotel is clean, rooms are decent sized, staff are helpful, it is 5 minutes walk from Wanchai MTR (two stops from Central), it is surrounded by restaurants and bars, there is a 7-11 direction opposite, the gym is reasonable and the breakfast buffet is pretty good too. I would classify it predominantly as a business hotel but for travellers on a bit of a budget I would still consider going there with the family. To sum it up I would argue you get slightly more than what you pay for in terms of facilities and location.
The Brighton is less than one block from an MTR station making it super convenient forgetting around. It is also right in the middle of a strip of pubs and bars making it great for night life. The hotel is crisp and clean as well as very modern. It also feels very safe. The rooms are about the same size as equally priced or slightly more expensive rooms in NYC, so I donʻt understand why there are so many complaints about room size. Hong Kong is simply a big city with very little space in general. The rooms also have pretty nice cityscape views. The staff was also very professional and polite. My only negative comment is that they only give one room key per room, which is really only inconvenient if one person wants to be in the room and one person wants to go out (the key is necessary for room electricity and A/C as well as operating the lift). However if you notify the staff you are leaving they are willing to assist you back to your room.
