Booking tomorrow need last minute help

We are booking our hotel tomorrow for our stay beginning of April. Two places I am looking at are Cityview Hotel or Royal Plaza hotel. Is their anything around that price range that you prefer? Hoping for good and easy eateries near by as we will have 4 young children with us. Also close to transport. I know Hong Kong has good transport so everything is easy to go to. I am just after recommendations on which hotel is best to stay at or if there is one better you would recommend....Oh B P International was also one I had looked at. Suggestions please.

As a tourist I would recommend hotel in Mongkok and Causeway Bay. They are on two different sides but close to different tourist spot respectively. Yours choices are good as they are close to metro (Royal Plaza is better). Another recommendation would be Cordis in Mongkok which is right on top of metro station, or Excelsior in Causeway Bay.

Nothing wrong with the area you picked. Between the 2 I prefer Cityview because of its proximity to the Tsuen Wan Line of the subway. Royal Plaza entails a slightly longer walk but if you are staying for more than 4 nights then I guess it's OK.

With 4 children you might want some more breathing space. BP is nice as it is right next to Kowloon Park. Royal Park is on top of a mall if that counts as room for running around, but it's a busy one. Cityview is very convenient if you are ok with walking out the door onto a busy road. But none of these are as busy as the Cordis, which is a sea of people outside most of the time.

Does The Imperial measure up to the other two I have mentioned?

A forumer here expressed great dislike for Imperial quite a while ago. I have no personal experience and don't know if things have improved. You should check the reviews.

Imperial is terrible. Stay away from it like the plague.

Consider the Butterfly chain of hotels. I personally prefer Butterfly on Victoria. Rooms are tiny though so you will need to get 2 rooms.

Holiday Inn Golden Mile or YMCA Salisbury are also OK.

Starting to think B P International. I had chosen Royal Plaza for the pool but it does seem further away from alot of the things we want to see like the Space Museum, Science museum etc.
