Austin Inn: A Thorough Review

It’s been two weeks since I arrived from Hong Kong, and I remained quiet. I got sick, really: acute tonsillitis. It was terrible I couldn’t swallow well, and I had high fever for a couple of days.

But everything is bright and happy once again, so her I am. Besides, my husband’s been bugging me to write something about the trip. I’ll just begin with a review of our accommodation.

I already talked slightly about it here. I’ll simply tell you my real impressions about it.

There are a lot of things I like about Austin Inn. One, the room and inn descriptions are accurate. In fact, what you saw in the previous blog post, that’s basically how the room looked like!

Second, the location is awesome. Only a few steps away is Austin Station. Around 5 to 8 minutes’ walk is Jordan Station. Along the way, you can pass by Temple Street, which is famous for its night market. On the right side of the building is a bus station to and from the airport. Groceries, bakeries, money changers, subways, more bus stations, eateries, restaurants, and even fancy jewelry shops are within the vicinity.

Third, the manager was simply cool. When we arrived, the room wasn’t available yet (we arrived early than the checkout time), but he allowed us to leave our things so we can start our tour. When we came back, the room needed some cleaning, though he let us relax and freshen up in the room. We officially came home around 9, and by then, all our things were already brought inside the room, and the unit was squeaky clean. He left us with slippers, and the bathroom had its own shampoo and towel. He was incredibly easy to talk to, and he made sure his guests were all satisfied.

The Room

The room is pretty small, and yet it’s common among a lot of Hong Kong accommodations. After all, space is at a premium in the country. Austin Inn’s units are nevertheless, clean, comfortable, and strategic, which all make up for the room size.

The Price

One of my foremost considerations in choosing this is price, and I think it’s practical and sensible. For two nights, I paid only 5,000+ for a three-person bedroom, and that already included AirBnB and cleaning fees.

Will I Stay Here Again?

Definitely. I also recommend it to anyone who’s planning to visit HK soon.

  1. I won’t be flying to HK soon but your post helped a lot in giving me an idea on the cost and quality of accommodation there. I have actually checked all your three posts about HK and I would definitely check this one out when I fly there with Lance. I’ve been planning to bring him there I’m just waiting for him to get a bit older to remember things. 🙂

    • Hello! Sorry for getting back so late. We had an Internet issue for a month! I’ll be posting more about HK within the next few weeks. Hopefully, you can get more inputs. 😉

So what are your thoughts?
