    Which hotel did you stayed, how many days and how much did it cost you?

    How far was it from the Testing center?

    I stayed in Harbour View International, went by MTR and it took me few min. walking to the MTR station and another 10 min. to the test center. Very convinient. I could go by taxi as well. Hong Kong is a very small island.

    I stayed 4 nights in the hotel and it was excellent. It was not very expensive, taking into consideration that I was in Wan Chai area (around 110 US$ a night).The MTR system is very convinient, even if you stay in Kawloon area which is cheaper, there is a good connection with MTR. The distance between the stations is 2-3 min.
    Hope this helps.

    Is it cheaper to book directly with the hotel or via a travel agent?
    What is your experience?

    Try the few sites for online booking like asiahotels, asiarooms... They have very good offers. and it is cheaper via the agent as they have special prices. Book in advance, as they dont always have availability.

    Let me know if I can help u with smthg else.

    Good luck

    Hi Lawrence, been browsing and surfing,but still cant decide where to book myself.Can you mention here the names of the hotels that are really just walking distance to Grand Millenium-the most important thing we considered.Maybe a 2 or 3 Star hotel will do, coz we're on a tight budget.Thanks and more power to you!

    Central Park Hotel and Lan Kwai Fong fits your description. You can just google their websites. There are more hotels to choose from and where ever you are in HK you are always just 10-15 mins. away from everything else because of the MTR but if you want just walking distance then those are the 2.
