I marked Post 8 as a duplicate post, as it was identical to Post 7. Post 9, which is my entry, quoted you from Post 6.

So, below is a duplicate post and so spamming? What is so duplicate about it?

Sorry Travellers Point i never meant to spam you with duplicate posts...... Bye Bye, i'm leaving these Forums.

"Mojorob... the Ibis looks brilliant but when i checked their prices, they are more like than US$140 not $60. Where did you find $60 booking in advance?"

I don't think you understood what I said. Post 8 was a duplicate of Post 7.

Post 6:
Thanks for the info. Looks like the Dragon then...

Mojorob... the Ibis looks brilliant but when i checked their prices, they are more like than US$140 not $60. Where did you find $60 booking in advance?

Post 7:
I just called up Dragon for booking double with pvt shower for mid April - full already! Only got shared shower, and my wife (since she's Thai) isnt keen on that at all.

Any other ideas? US$60 is ok too

It is dependant on the dates as well - I looked and some nights are HK$480, but other nights are more than that. I saw this on the Ibis website.

Post 8 is a duplicate of Post 7, the quote you have in your most recent entry is from Post 6. Post 8 was identical to Post 7, and therefore a duplicate.

There's no need to be upset. mojorob was just flagging it for review (I agree that the red 'spam' label on the thread might be better off changed). There's any number of reasons a post can be reviewed. The most typical one is spam, but as you've noticed a post can be flagged for being a duplicate or for containing an email address, as explained in the text that 'takes over' the post while it's being reviewed. Duplicate posts are typically flagged because otherwise we could end up with multiple posts across multiple forums all asking the same thing. Within a thread it's usually because of a refresh while posting and basically harmless, but it's still nice to clean up the threads a little and remove duplicates like that. No one ever was labelling you as a spammer, just following the general set up of the forums as always.

All in all, hope you do stay. There's really no harm done imho.

If you are not very particular, then why not stay in a guesthouse. My family stayed in one and we are quite satisfied. Plus, we meet fellow travelers that give us tips and we chatted until the night. The location of guesthouses are also pretty convenient so you also save on the cab fare.

My friends recommend Lee Garden Guesthouse - private suite around $55 or Guangdong Guesthouse $45.

[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please. ]

The recently opened Butterfly on Prat is a place you should seriously consider (although it charges slightly more than US$ 50 per room per night...)

This newly opened boutique-style hotel seems to be one of the hottest things on Hong Kong's hotel scene, and that is no surprise really, as it gives a very good "bang for the buck".

Located on Prat Avenue, right in the heart of Tsim sha Tsui's shopping and dinning district, and within a short walking distance to many attractions, the hotel boasts very modern rooms that are properly equipped with LCD TV, DVD player, Coffee & Tea set, microwave, small fridge, safe and some nice bathroom amenities…

The rate for a superior double room with ensuite bathroom can start from as low as HK$ 550 per room per night, which is really a bargain!

Another good option for this budget-range is Ramada Hong Kong Hotel, which is located at the Western District of Hong Kong Island, overlooking Victoria Harbor.

It is not within walking distance to any of the city's shopping and entertainment districts, (neither is it close to a MTR station) but the tramway is just outside and the hotel provides free shuttle service, so getting to Central, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay or Tsim Sha Tsui should not be a problem...

Bottom end: With a budget of around US$ 50 per room per night, you can struggle for more than a "Chunking guesthouse"........
