Hotels To Stay in Hong Kong (From Backpacker to Baller)

This article is originally found here: https://www.globalfromasia.com/hongkonghotels/

Welcome to Hong Kong! The first thing a new client asks us is – what is a good hotel to stay at in Hong Kong? With so many choices and price ranges, it is a difficult answer to say in 1 email! So we have taken parts from various posts and made today’s guide list a full range of options for different locations and price ranges.

Related: check our Hong Kong traveler guide for some highlights.

This guide will be ever evolving, and if you have places to suggest – please contact us or leave a comment below.

Also, if it is your first trip to Hong Kong – check out our complete (and free) Hong Kong Business Traveler’s Guide.

Where in Hong Kong?

Hong Kong isn’t the biggest place – so even if you pick a hotel far from the center it is possible to get there and back for meetings and conferences.

Going to Global Sources Trade Show

Many come to Hong Kong for the Global Sources Trade Show. This is a bit far from downtown, so you need to decide if you want to visit popular bars and restaurants at night or not.

While there are some nice hotels at the airport and near the Asia World Expo (where the Global Sources Show is) – most people stay at a hotel in Kowloon or Hong Kong island.

Why? Two reasons

  • There is a free bus or Airport Express for Global Sources Attendees. During the trade show season, they worked a deal to give you a free pass to the Asia World Expo from Kowloon or Hong Kong station. Just show your badge or registration papers and you’ll get a pass.
  •  There are more things to do at night – Just like any city, the airport is not downtown! Hong Kong is the same. So if you want to get some nightlife in and nice restaurants, it’s best to find a place in Central, Wan Chai, or TST districts (as well as quite a few other central hubs).

Going to the HKTDC Trade Show

There is another trade show happening in Hong Kong as well – the Hong Kong TDC show, or HKTDC for short. This is on the main island of Hong Kong, aka Hong Kong island, so you can just take a MTR to Wan Chai station and it’s about a 7 minute walk to the HK Exhibition Centre.

Many people go to both the Global Sources Show as well as the HKTDC show. Each are a few days long, and have just a little overlap.

So if you’re looking to do both, and want to reduce the commuting and have a hotel in the downtown area – look for places in Wanchai, Causeway Bay, Admiralty, or Central. Sheung Wan is another good one.

Always Check The Address On MTR Map

So a good rule of thumb is to ask the hotel what the nearest MTR station is. Then, find the MTR map and look at it.

Downtown is the blue line on the bottom of the map. That is where the “action” is. The bottom left is the main spot, with Central as the hub. If you’re near Central, you can also take the Airport Express right up to the Global Sources show, so it is easy to get there and to the HKTDC.

A newer MTR map will show you more stops on the blue line to the left (West) of Sheung Wan (and left of Central). These are “up and coming” districts with this new metro line expansion, so you may be able to get cheaper hotels and better value for money there.

Also, if it is far up north or far to the east – that is about a 45 minute to 1 hour MTR ride from downtown. I learned the hard way “back in the day”. Plus I have had clients in town who book a nice hotel there but it is just so far from everything. You’ll save money, but spend more time in taxis or more time in the subway.

What’s Your Budget?

Hong Kong is one of the most expensive places in the world! And no matter how much you spend, you will probably have a much more compact room than anywhere else in the world! Space is such a valuable asset here it is unbelievable.

So when someone asks me for a hotel recommendation, I would ask:

  • What is your budget?
  • What are your expectations?
  • What location do you want? Central? Or Willing to Travel more?

If you want a 5 star hotel in downtown, you’re talking around 500 US dollars per night. If you can deal with a 3 star in a downtown area, you can get by at $200 USD a night. Then there are the 1 – 2 star that you can find around 100 to 200 USD a night. If you’re willing to go to Kowloon side or even further into New Territories you can get better quality at a better rate.

Hong Kong is really all about location. And size of the room.

AirBnB + Hong Kong

AirBnB. An obvious one, but less choices here as the Hong Kong government is strict about businesses listing here – https://www.airbnb.com/s/Hong-Kong. Over and over again this topic comes up – Airbnb is technically not allowed in Hong Kong and the government has forbid people to use it. You can list there, but to list, you need to be a business with a license to sell a short term stay.

To legally list on Airbnb in Hong Kong as a person / individual, the listing has to be for at least a 1 month stay. That is what the government allows for personal to personal renting.

Yet I have friends from NY and other places who have still found amazing places to stay through it, as recent as a couple months ago right in Mid-Levels in Central. Check it out, and see if you find any apartments you can rent. The risk if there is a government crackdown at your apartment is that you would get your money back and have to find a new hotel. I haven’t heard reports about it – and so I wouldn’t worry too much renting on Airbnb for a short term stay, but listing is another matter.

Yes Inn

Backpacker Looking For Value For Money?

One I am safe to recommend is called Yes Inn. This is a hostel, pretty clean, and a bunch of my friends have stayed here. They have two locations on the Hong Kong Island side – Causeway Bay and Fortress Hill. There is also one on the Kowloon side in Mong Kok (check an MTR map to learn about specific districts). You can share a room with other travelers, or get your own private room. Below is a pricing table:

Standard mixed dorm suite HKD $179-419 (USD $22-56)
Private room suite HKD $199-459 (USD $25-59)

This seems to be the best value for a bootstrapping entrepreneur. They have a few locations in Hong Kong; the better location is in Causeway Bay, but there are also locations in Fortress Hill and Kowloon. Rates start at about 200 HKD a night (28 USD). Obviously check their website for the latest prices, but in my opinion the lowest cost for the value and location you can find! http://www.yesinn.com

Butterfly Hotel

Butterfly hotel is a bit more expensive. But again, you get what you pay for. Rates from 1,000 HKD to 2,000 HKD a night (140 to 280 USD), but you have your own room, there is wifi everywhere, and they have locations throughout Hong Kong. Check out the Butterfly hotel in Central here.
http://butterflyhk.com/eng/our-hotels/on-hollywood/index.php

King’s Inn

I think this is a mix between the two choices above, both in price and in service. The rate when I have stayed here is about 300 to 400 HKD (40 to 50 USD), and you’ll have your own room. But there is only one location right in Wan Chai. The website is a bit hard to use, but then again this is why the price is more reasonable.
http://www.kingshotelhk.com/hotel/location

Next I am nervous to even mention it here – but I think a guide about Hong Kong hotels wouldn’t be complete without at least mentioning it:

Chungking Mansions is the building having about 80 low cost accommodations (guest houses) located on Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon district). I have stayed here at least 5 or 6 times, as well as countless numbers of my friends. You can get a room for as low as 100 HKD a night, though more realistically 200HKD. A lot of Indian restaurants that second as a hostel overnight – I have slept to the strong smell of curry at least a couple times there. An adventure to say the least. If you are looking for the lowest cost choice, take a trip over: 33-44 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong… but don’t say I didn’t warn you first!

The funny thing is – our office is across the street! Yet none of our clients have opted in to staying there!

Want To Stay Near The Global From Asia Office?

Coming to Hong Kong just for us! Wow, we are honored. So many clients ask us what are some good hotels nearby the office. Let’s list out a few. We also link them to booking.com search results, as you can put our company address (found at globalfromasia.com/contact/) and get search results by distance.

Holiday Inn TST District

A big brand and one many Americans know well, Holiday Inn. They have one Holiday Inn that is 1 block from my office: http://www.booking.com/hotel/hk/holidayinn.html and have had people stay there plenty of times.

How much is it? Of course it varies by season and supply demand, but I would tell you about the $200usd per night range.

Sheraton Hong Kong

And Sheraton is a block away from the office too. http://www.starwoodhotels.com/sheraton/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=482

Prices here start at about $3,100 HKD a night (about $400 USD), and are high class.

Peninsula Hong Kong

Another 5 star hotel right around the corner from our office. Also has a great view of Victoria Harbour (for an extra 100usd/night fee on average). The rates here start at 4,000 HKD/night ($500usd) but it is an amazing experience.

http://hongkong.peninsula.com/en/default

Also, if you’re up to see Hong Kong from the sky, they have a helipad on the rooftop!

Intercontinental

This is a hotel I stayed in for about a week when doing a business deal with a European investor back in 2009 – 2010! It is a good hotel and also a bit more reasonable price than some of the other hotels with a room rate starting at $250 USD / night.

Still not for the backpacker’s budget, but for a business person who wants a good mix of class and value, this is an option. It is just a few more blocks away from MTRs, but still right on Victoria Harbour on the Kowloon side with some amazing views. I enjoyed working in the lobby with a massive 2 – 3 story tall window overlooking the harbor.

What Is Your Experience With Various Hong Kong Hotels?

Hope today’s guide on accommodation in Hong Kong is helpful! This could be a book – there are so many hotels and places to stay, this is only a brief overview to give you some ideas of price ranges, locations, and levels of service.

It is probably going to cost you around $150usd a night for a “normal” hotel room, can go as low as $50usd, and as high as $500 – or even more. As everything in Hong Kong, the sky is the limit!

Now it is your turn! Please share your experiences and recommendations in the comment section below. Let’s help each other out!

Cheers to our international business success!

MISSION HILLS TO UNVEIL 80-YEAR-OLD HIDDEN PHOTOS AT CHINA FLIGHT EXHIBITION

[Haikou, Hainan Province, China – 16 March 2018] In the mid-1930s, a celebrated German aviator called Wulf-Diether Graf zu Castell-Rüdenhausen flew over China with his Leica camera, recording stunning landscapes, natural features and historical monuments. For more than 80 years his photos have remained undiscovered and unseen – until now.

On April 7, Mission Hills Group, owners and operators of the world’s largest golf and leisure facility, will launch the ”China Flug” (meaning China Flight) photography exhibition at the luxury Mission Hills Haikou resort on the tropical Chinese island of Hainan.  

On display will be several precious and historical photos which have remained unseen to the world for many years, amazingly found at Castell’s family home. These photographs record incredible images of old China through the power of aerial photography.

Visitors will experience a special exhibition encapsulating the past and blazing a new trail towards a brighter future in photography. They will witness a side to China not seen before as China’s beauty and diversity are displayed for all to see.

Castell has become a legend, not just because of his aerial photography but also because of the precious images he captured. With his Leica camera he was able to capture China through a tumultuous time. He flew over cities, countryside, rolling hills, ports and residential areas including riverbeds and farmlands which were previously undocumented. He was able to encapsulate the spirit of the time with great style and panache and will be remembered as an amazing pioneer both as an aviator and a photographer.

The “China Flug” exhibition will run from April 7 for 45 days at Mission Hills Centreville in Haikou.  Entry will be free, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Hainan’s status as a province.

“We are honoured to team up with Mission Hills – like Leica, a family-owned business and a pioneer in its field – to bring these significant photos of China to the Chinese public,” said Chairman of the Supervisory Board Leica Camera AG, Dr Andreas Kaufmann, owner of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH.
“China Flug is an example of how Leica captured the past one hundred years of human history. It is also a showcase of the long friendship built between Germany and China,” added Karin Kaufmann, Art Director of Leica Gallery International and Chairwoman of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH.

“Mission Hills Haikou, the most visited tourist attraction in Hainan, is delighted to partner with Leica, with more than 100 years of history, to create yet another first for China and for the world,” added Tenniel Chu, Group Vice Chairman of Mission Hills. “As China’s international tourism island, it is befitting that Hainan should be the location to unveil these remarkable aerial photos of China that have remained a secret for so long. It is our gift to the province and its people to celebrate Hainan’s 30th anniversary!” 

Sun Ying, director of the Hainan Provincial Tourism Development Commission commented: “Visitors to Hainan continue to grow year on year and the province received more than 67.45 million tourists in 2017, up 12.2 per cent year-on-year, contributing 81 billion yuan in revenue. Mission Hills has been at the forefront of tourism in Haikou for close to a decade and the China Flug exhibition will be another hugely popular attraction for visitors to Hainan.”

A New Class Of Airport Hospitality At Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Airport

Allow me to paint what I suspect is a familiar picture for a number of our readers. You’ve just spent the better part of a day traveling from across the world to arrive at Shenzhen Airport. It’s already late, and first thing in the morning you are scheduled to start a long tour of factories. All you wish to do is get a good night’s sleep.

The problem, however, is that if you wish to stay at a five-star hotel that offers quality service and luxury accommodation, then you would need to go to Nanshan or further still to Futian or Shekou. All of which are 45 minutes or more drive’s away from the airport. With the opening of the Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Airport, that is all set to change.

Ever since it opened the doors of its first hotel in 1957 in Los Angeles, the Hyatt group has become synonymous with sleekly designed hotels, impeccable service, and luxury accommodation. With over 700 properties all over the world, the Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Airport marks the group’s latest endeavor in hospitality excellence.

So, the next time you arrive at Shenzhen Airport, tired after a long flight, take the short five-minute stroll from the arrival/departure hall via an indoor pathway.

Offering 335 comfortable and contemporary guestrooms, guests can rest assured they can find what they are looking for with spacious rooms ranging from 40 to 245 square meters. All rooms come equipped with complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and a study desk, so you can carry on with work if needed. While they also boast floor-to-ceiling windows with sound insulation and separate bathtub and shower, so you can relax and get a good night’s sleep.

If after checking in, you are still looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat, then why not try one of Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Airport’s four restaurant and bars. The Lobby Lounge presents guests with a relaxing environment where they can savor a light meal, gather with colleagues for afternoon tea, or enjoy a cocktail in the evening. Located on the 2nd floor, is the Market Café, where guests can come for breakfast, lunch and dinner from the three unique cooking stations of Asian Da Pai Dang, The Italian Grill, and The Deli & Bakery. The hotel is also home to Xiangyue, which showcases the finest in local Cantonese cuisine along with some favorite delicacies of Northern China and Sichuan.After a deep and recuperative sleep, there is time in the morning to make the most of the Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Airport’s 24-hour gym. The state-of-the-art fitness center offers the latest Matrix cardio equipment, weight machines, and free weights to give an invigorating workout to start the day. Afterwards, feel free to do a few laps of the 25-meter indoor swimming pool or allow yourself to be pampered in the luxurious Flo Spa.

Following a work out in the gym and breakfast at the Market Café, it’s time to head into the city. Conveniently, the extensive Shenzhen Metro is located beneath the airport and the hotel. From there, guests can take the high-speed Line 11 to Houhai, which connects to Line 2 leading down to the popular Shekou area, and to Futian, which is home to the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center.

So next time you are flying through Shenzhen, treat yourself to a new class of airport hospitality with the Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Airport.

TRANSPORTATION

The only international five-star hotel within Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport lies just 500 meters from the Terminal Hall. The city center is 30 minutes by car or Metro Line 11 (station directly beneath the terminal). Shenzhen Bay Port, Huanggang Port and Luohu Port are between 30-40 minutes’ drive away and Shenzhen High-Speed North Railway Station is approximately 40 minutes from the hotel.
