Hong Kong Hotels – Guide to Cheap Hotels in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Hotels

The best way to choose a hotel in Hong Kong is to look for the shiniest and most modern one on the street. Older hotels are known to lack the comfort and professionalism. The second tip to finding the best Hong Kong Hotels is to go for the ones that do not have the province followed by the Chinese word for ‘hotel’. Again, these hotels should be avoided as they are generally run scarcely and owned by local government.

So take into account the name of the hotel and how recently it has been established and you will be well on your way to finding the best hotel for your stay.

For those who are money conscious, Hong Kong has some cheap hotels available that still provide a comfortable and even modern stay. Below are some Budget and Mid Range hotels to check out.


YMCA International HouseYMCA International House (Yau Ma Tei) – modern with a broad range of facilities, though a bit off the beaten track Dorsett Seaview Hotel (Yau Ma Tei) – smallish but cosy, this hotel is tidy and comfortable for those on a budget.


Kowloon HotelKowloon Hotel (Tsim Sha Tsui) – sophisticated style minus the price tag

Regal Riverside HotelRegal Riverside Hotel (Shatin) – spacious and well decorated though not as appealing on the outside

Hong Kong has extreme ends of the hotel spectrum with the cheap hotels at reasonable low rates right up to the exuberant indulgence of the luxurious and beyond.

Lanson Place Hong KongLanson Place Hong Kong (Causeway Bay) – relatively new, modern spacious style

Uber Pricy

Mandarin OrientalMandarin Oriental (Central) – five star elegance, obvious charm and great views

Island Shangri La (Central) – serenity of European influence, comfortable yet trendy

With these options, there is something for everyone depending on how much they are willing to spend. You don’t have to break the bank to have a wonderful stay here but if you want to spoil yourselves, the more elegant hotels will take your breath away.

For foreigners, it is best to stay as central as possible as transport requires a bit of language knowledge to get around and many shops and restaurants out of the city usually do not have English translations. Also remember to check that tax is added and whether prices rise with peak times of the year before you book.
