Dragon Court Hotel
Dragon Court is a very well-located budget hotel in the heart of Chinatown, offering economy accommodation for backpackers and budget tourists.
The rooms here are a step up from those found in backpackers’ hostels as they come with double beds, attached bathrooms and hotel amenities such as a laundry and hairdryer. The biggest selling point, of course, is how close this hotel to all the sights and shopping in Chinatown and transportation (5-min walk to train station).
Price: US$80 – US$130 per room night.
Dragon Court Hotel Reviews
TripAdvisor’s reviews for the budget Dragon Court Hotel are average with some complaints. But guests generally loved its excellent location and found it to be good value for money in this expensive city.
- Excellent location as it is just steps from everything
- Eateries and shopping on the same street
- Deluxe double rooms have window views and amenities
- Large family rooms available
- Some rooms have no windows
- Hotel is a little dated
- Some experienced problems with air-conditioning
- Cleanliness is a hit and miss thing
Well located in an interesting and central part of town. My first room was smelly from smoke and then i found a drawer that had not been cleaned out from last client. When i raised this with the staff they and the owner were very accomodating and helpful – they found me a new room that was neither smelly or uncleaned and also a slight upgrade straight away and no fuss. They were very apologetic. For the quality of the service and the location I would recommend this place for budget travellers. – russell_denisw from Australia TripAdvisor
