Advice on Where to Stay in Hong Kong

The hotel prices provided in this guide are rack rates, which may be higher if you visit during peak season (Chinese New Year, Mar-May, Oct-Nov). Otherwise, you’ll be able to obtain a place for a lot less. When making bookings, it’s critical to search around and inquire about special packages, upgrades, or promotional pricing, especially during the off-season.

In Hong Kong, the price of a room is generally determined by its view and height rather than its size. The best and most expensive accommodations, predictably, are those with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour and those on the higher floors.


A hotel hong kong in this category, including some of my personal favorites, provides nearly as much as Hong Kong’s most expensive hotels, and some even have spectacular views of Victoria Harbour. Guest relations/concierge desks, 24-hour room service, swimming pools and/or health clubs or exercise rooms, business centers, same-day laundry service, comfortable rooms with hairdryers, satellite TVs with in-room movies, voicemail, Internet access, coffee/tea-making facilities, bathroom scales, and usually free bottled water and a welcome basket of fruit are all standards in this category. For business travelers, several feature executive floors.

Tour groups have long been a pillar of Hong Kong tourism, and you’re most likely to see them in the city’s reasonably priced hotels, which make up the majority of the city’s accommodations. Hairdryers, Internet access or Wi-Fi, minibars or empty fridges that you can stock yourself, instant coffee and sometimes complimentary bottled water, plus room service, bellhops, nonsmoking floors, tour desks, and sometimes a swimming pool and/or fitness facility are among the amenities found in guest rooms. Because harbor views are rarely accessible (save in a few hotels on the Hong Kong Island side), rates are usually determined by height/floor number, decor, and size, albeit the cheapest rooms in this space-constrained metropolis may face another building.


Hong Kong, unfortunately, has more high-end hotels than low-cost accommodations. Small, functional rooms with a shower and air conditioning are common in this category of hong kong hotel, but services and amenities are typically limited. Always check to see whether there is a pricing difference between twin and double accommodations.

If at all feasible, inspect a room before making a decision, as some may be better than others in terms of traffic noise, view, condition, and size. The inexpensive hotels recommended below should not cause any problems, while larger hotels are frequently crowded with tour groups.
