Where to Stay in Hong Kong

Booking a hotel in Hong Kong is very easy. But finding the right hotel? It took us forever! *sigh* Maybe it’s just us girls (me and my former officemates) and our indecisive hormones, but we looked at tons of hotels online before finally booking one just a week prior to our trip.

Finding a Hotel in Hong Kong

There are a lot of hotel booking sites nowadays, but we booked ours from and my friends booked theirs from . So if you have been doubtful about these sites, don’t worry, they are genuine. You will have your room as you booked it unless of course the hotel receptionist/s themselves messed up their bookings (hopefully not!). Just be sure to bring a printed copy of your booking confirmation from the website.

Factors to consider

Location: If you are a tourist in Hong Kong, people say that it is best to book a hotel between Tsim Sha Tsui and Mongkok. But depending on your itinerary, you might consider other areas. For me, the most important thing is that the hotel is very near MTR stations, restaurants or food stalls and convenient stores. Of course, you should also make sure you feel safe in the area, its surroundings, and the building itself. I think Hong Kong is generally a safe place but, to be sure, read the hotel reviews in the booking websites so you will be forewarned of any unpleasantness.

Room Type: Most hotels have a single, double, twin, triple and quadruple rooms. If you are travelling in a much larger group and want to stay in one room, that would make it cheaper per night but you might have a harder time finding the right place. There are a lot of dormitories and guest houses in Hostels.com that can accommodate large groups. (But note that we did not book from this website and I cannot assure you of its reliability. Maybe other bloggers can testify to that.) We initially planned on booking a dormitory or a room good for 6-8 persons but we realized that having only one bathroom would be a problem. In the end, we booked three double or twin rooms.

Budget: If you are on a tight budget, you will be happy to know that there are a lot of budget hotels in Hong Kong. The hotel booking sites mentioned above also make it easier for you to search hotels within your budget. Make sure to read the hotel or room descriptions carefully; some room prices shown are good for the period you have chosen (e.g. 3 nights), some are per night, and some would indicate *excluding 10% service fee.
