Dont stay here if you are expecting a hotel-like experience. First of all, as you arrive at Chunking Mansion, you will encounter a lot of africans and south asians hanging around. Some may sell you stuffs or service. Just ignore them and go straight to the elevator. Take note of the guest house's block and floor, as each block will have its own elevators and each elevator will take you either to odd or even number floors. Maple leaf is at block E and at 12th floor.

Check in was a breeze and i even got a room upgrade. Even with their largest room, it seems very small and crampy. But the room is very clean and so is the bathroom. Air cond and wifi is available in the room and drinking water dispenser is available at the hallway.

Location is in the hectic Tsim Tsa Tsui area, and the legendary posh Peninsula hotel is literally your neighbor. Walking distance to avenue of the stars, star ferry and MTR station is right across the street.

I just needed some rest (had 16 hrs to kill between long flights), and this was a good cheap option. Paid the owner HKG 350 cash (equals U$50) and had the room from just 10am to 6pm, to shower, and try to sleep a bit. From the airport there's a bus (forgot the no.), convenient double decker, runs every 10 mins, for a few - something like HKG 3.50, brought us almost to the front of the bldg or 2 min walk, in about 35-40 mins. When you enter the bldg, it's a bit shady - a lot of small ethnic shops (I'd say Pakistani), smells of middle-eastern food... get to your elevator, still shabby, but once inside this guest place - it's a small area (I'd say about 5-6 rooms altogether, connected by a hallway with own mini-mini bathroom) you see it's simple, but nice and clean. Owner really pleasant - I couldn't book online, cuz I needed during the DAY, not overnight - so did it by phoning them ahead. Never been to a bathroom like this one (so small, lol) - shower hose above the toilet, so first u pee, then you brush teeth in the sink, THEN shower, because the whole tiny bathroom will be soaking wet after u shower. It's very close to a nice big park with flamingos, close to the waterfront, right on busy Nathan St. On my way back from Australia back to Toronto, I however stayed overnight at LBP hotel in HKG, Queen's Road West, it's dble the price (ie, U$100/night) - but it's black/white difference to this accommodation, total almost luxury lol and still cheap for HKG standards, that is if you want to treat yourself.... happy travels everyone!

The guest house is at the most perfect location of Hong Kong. It's walking distance to most of the places such as Victoria Harbour, Avenue of Stars, Macau Ferry Terminal. I was there during Chinese New Year and was very lucky when the parade took place right in front of the guest house. The guest house can be easily accessed by MTR, buses and taxi. Putting the room size aside, the room is extremely clean!

We arrived at 10:30 in the evening and the owner is there. She said that my card was invalid because she tried to claim the "No Show" fee (we sent an email when we arrived at the airport at 8:30). She offers another room because according to her, our room is small and add 150hkd.

Me: Just give us the key to the room and we'll see if we'll upgrade tomorrow.
Owner: Tomorrow is fully booked.
Me: We have limited budget. I can only pay the amount initially agreed.
Owner: You can pay tomorrow.
Me: We are so hungry and we have a child with us so please let us leave our bags and let us eat dinner.
Owner: The room is so small. The room for you is downstairs. Lots of noisy Indians, you have a baby, I want that you can rest.
Me: I am aware that the room and bed is small so please we want to rest now. (looking back, I should have bluffed this woman that I'll report her to the guard below or cancelled it on the spot.)
Owner: Okay, just add 50hkd (total of 550hkd) and I'll give you the room, tomorrow you transfer to a bigger room. Room 32 will checkout tomorrow.

We were able to eat our dinner at 11:15. She also asked about our schedule the next day not because she's interested with our itinerary but she is scheming to give our room to others while we are away. (this can be explained by the luggages seen by the other travellers who reviewed this guesthouse).

The husband told me to agree with the owner's offer so we can already rest and eat. So she gave us room 28 and she pointed that we'll transfer to room 32 the next day. She instructed us to leave our bags and key inside the room so that they can transfer it when we leave. The following day, we decided to stay in the current room because we're already settled. So, I called her.

Me: Good morning, Ma'am. We'll just stay in our current room, no need to transfer.
Owner: Of course, I gave you a big room. If you want to stay in that room, you have to pay 400hkd.
Me: But you said we'll move to room 32?
Owner: I told you, the room is small.

So I just hung up the phone and fixed our things.

When we arrived in the evening, she wasn't in the reception, I still have to call her to as where is our new room. We waited for another 30 minutes (really annoying) then her husband arrived. The husband has a few luggages with him, put in one of the rooms then lead us downstairs to Cynthia's Inn (10th floor). Smelly and dirty.

The owners of the guesthouse is worse than the shady people on the first floor. She did not issue any receipt and tries to get away by dismissing you immediately or pretend that you did not understand what she said.

I think she subcontracted our accommodation to a cheaper hostel.

NEVER AGAIN.

Probably the hotel manager (including receptionist and cleaning service) was well aware that his service was displeasing. He sent a "No Show" notice to the hotel booker I used to book this hotel, whereas I did show up and stayed here. Hence, I couldn't write a review about this hotel on that hotel booker's website. When I argued why he had done so, he said that it was his new receptionist's fault. And yet, the record of "no show" wasn't changed.

I wonder how many times he has done this trick. How many negative reviews has he forestalled??

Just a night before my arrival, he sent me an email asking on what time I would check in. I explained to him my condition and that I probably would arrive at night. He sent a reply to that email which means he had read my email. Therefore, he should have no reason for sending my hotel booker a "No Show" report.

My room was extremely small. Under my bed were two (at least) big suitcases of whom I don't know. Before I went to bed, a cockroach crept up the wall bidding me good night. The next morning, another one or maybe the same one, greeted me good morning. I smashed that one and left the beaten cockroach on the wall.

In the afternoon I returned to my room and found a bunch of keys hanging on my key slot. I went out to find the manager/receptionist who was holding a mob in his hand. He said that he had been cleaning my room.

The beaten cockroach on the wall was gone. I went into the bathroom. Another cockroach said good afternoon to me. With all my might I stomped that alien to death.

My towel had been replaced with a (seemingly) new one, but torn.

At night, when I returned back, another cockroach crawled on my blanket. I crushed that alien between the blanket and brought the blanket outside for exchange of a new one. I got a new one but was asked at what time I was going to check out.

That was a rather irritating question, because the night before that matter had already been discussed and agreed. Thus I had to repeat our talk the previous night.

In the middle of the night, past eleven o'clock, he knocked on my door. "What is it?" I asked from inside.

"What time are you going to check out tommorow?" he asked, again. Aaargh.

Between my sleep that night, I heard guests passing my room and whispering in front of my door. When I got out, I noticed that the manager had sticked a big white piece paper on my door telling me to leave my suitcase in the room and I should get it at the receptionist no later than 6:00 PM, and bla bla bla. What a treatment!

Chung King Mansion is located on a strategic place. However, for a first timer in Hong Kong, let alone finding Maple Leaf Guest House, finding Chung King Mansion itself is headache. The frequent Indians along Nathan Road and inside Chung King Mansion offering accomodation makes it worse.

This is my first time that a good reviewed place on tripadvisor let me down. I am not racist but the area this place is located is really dodgy full of Indians and other foreigners, most of which are constantly offering services and goods, especially at night. Access to this place is horrible with a single small slow lift used by a good quantity of people.
The room itself was small and almost nothing was provided except water and WiFi.
It wasn't expensive but due to the below rating we expected better,

Do not be fooled by the photos. terribly small room similar to a dog's cage.

We've been walking for almost an hour asking for directions, to be honest the building doesn't look like a hotel. It is a retail/commercial building, there were heaps of market stalls predominantly Indian products at the ground floor. You wouldn't expect a motel/hotel in that building.
A guy approached us and asked if we were guests booked for Maple Leaf Guest House? He did not introduced himself and confidently instructed us to follow him. We ignored him at first because we thought he was just a bystander whose business is to trick tourists! Until he started telling us our details to validate that he was indeed a representative of the hotel. It would have been easier if he introduced himself formally, wouldn't it? Anyway, he guided us walking through the Indian stalls, turning left/right, turning circles and eventually used the lift in going up. To our disgust, the reception area was very tight, hot and small, much more with the rooms. I wasn't even sure if there was an emergency exit access?!! To make the story short, we cancelled the accomodation & worst part the manager wouldn't reimburse our payment. He charged us HK$200 instead. We left the guesthouse with a heavy heart!! We ended up staying in an expensive hotel but worth all the penny. Lesson learned, never settle for less especially when you're on holidays.

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel and I have to say that this was the craziest experience for me ever. At first, you have to enter the hostel through an Indian Bazar. A lot of people try to sell you something. That's a little bit annoying and scarry, if you are not used to it.
Second, the rooms are very small, like cells.
Third, there was a terrible smell like chemicals.
Fourth, it was very noisy.
What I have to say is, that the staff was really helpful and friendly. For that reason I gave 2 points instead of 1 point.
You have to think: If you pay the double, you get a 4 star hotel on Hongkong island. it's worthy.

Small hard to find but just ask the peddler out front they are harmless... Ask the hotel to send you a map to the correct elevator very important......the room have air con and plenty of hot water along with a ceiling fan when trying to find this place look for chucking mansion it in black and gold letters transportation. From airport to and from it costs 33hk dollars you need to look for the A21 bus it takes 45-55 mins to get to airport and hotel best value for your money. Metro is across the street from hostel.food all around and shopping everywhere .....

I just stayed four nights at Maple Leaf in a single room. The lobby of Chungking Mansions is looking super dodgy, but don't be put off, just walk to elevator E and ignore pesterers trying to talk you into staying at their guesthouses or stell you stuff. Room was extremely small, 2m x 2m, but I did not plan on staying in a room anyway, I walked around HK from morning to late night. What was most important for me, the room was very clean, and there were no bad smells. The bedsheet was spotlessly clean, but bed was a bit hard - I read that it is standard in HK. Guy that was in the reception is very friendly and agreed to look after my baggage after I checked out. Drinking water is provided, as well as hot water - in the lobby there are toiletries provided, so you don't have to buy anything. Overall, If I ever go back to HK, and will be solo travelling, then I will definitely stay at this place again.
