Im in HK  for three nights and funding the trip myself, any suggestions as to reasonably priced Hotels

My thought is either to stay in HK  for the three nights and head to the airport for my 8-30am flight  or just to two nights in HK  and spend the last night night in an Airport hotel

Also anyone had any experience with Helloworld  booking flights?

Hi John,

Welcome to Hong Kong! In a city with such a wide range of hotels at all points along the spectrum as Hong Kong, "reasonably priced" is a matter of perspective. Also, you didn't say when you'll be in town, but timing of various events and holidays can influence hotel prices significantly - for example, the first week of October is the major "Golden Week" holiday in China, and you can expect hotels in Hong Kong to be booked solid with people visiting from the mainland. That said, here are a few reasonably central hotels that you may want to consider. These are generally newer and/or better maintained properties, where you should have a bit of elbow room (some less expensive hotels in HK can get quite snug). They also generally cater more to western tastes and individual travellers, and less to mass market tour groups. 

Hotel Indigo, Wan Chai

Holiday Inn Express, Soho

Holiday Inn Express, Causeway Bay

Park Lane Pullman, Causeway Bay

Hotel Pennington by Rhombus, Causeway Bay

 

While there are two hotel options at the airport for your last night, the Regal Airport Hotel and SkyCity Marriott, I would suggest just staying at your downtown hotel for the whole trip. You can take the Airport Express train from Hong Kong Station in Central to the airport. Trains leave every 10 minutes, starting at 05:50am, and the trip takes about 25 minutes. You can also check in your luggage at the Airport Express station, and go to the airport with only your carry-on. Almost all airlines provide this service, except for a handful of low cost carriers. They will generally accept your checked luggage up to 90 minutes before the flight, so leaving your hotel at 06:30 for an 08:30 flight is quite doable, and you get to enjoy your last evening in HK, instead of packing up and heading out to the airport to check into the airport hotel. Some airlines will also accept your checked luggage up to 24 hours in advance, so you could even take advantage of that the night before, and make a last-minute dash to the airport in the morning with just your overnight kit in hand luggage - but in reality, that won't save you more than a few minutes in the morning. 

 

I hope that helps! Enjoy your stopover in Hong Kong.

Great advice from Chris, and I'd agree – an airport hotel is handy for one night with a short stay between flights, but there's not much to do around there (apart from shops at CityGate Mall if you're at the Novotel) and the time (via MTR) or cost (via Airport Express) going to the city and back is a bit of a waste.

I've stayed quite a few times at the Luxe Manor at TST – boutique hotel, funky rooms – and booking in advance can give you good rates. I also hear good reports of the Novotel TST in the 'value for money' stakes. You can also try being on the island rather than Kowloon side, Avolo is near Central and good value there, as are some of the hotels a few MTR stations east and west of Central.

Hi there!

For a hotel in Hong Kong itself, Hotel ICON in Tsim Sha Tsui is undoubtedly the best option. As part of HK PolyU, the hotel staff are super motivated and really try to elevate your guest experience to a new level. I would really recommend this hotel due to the extremely personalised service and the amazing views. The hotel also offers a free shuttle to the MTR station in Tsim Sha Tsui and to Harbour City. And the rooms are so nice with the most amazing toiletries. Personally, this is my favourite city hotel!

Another option that always sounds wierd but really isn't is the Salisbury YMCA.  No need to get a shuttle to the MTR as there are entrances right outside the hotel.  It is also right near The Peninsula in TST so the location can't be beat.  An easy walk to the Star Ferry means you can get anywhere easily.  Make sure you grab yourself an Octopus Card as they're used for trains, ferries, 7-11s, Starbucks and even groceries.

try cordis in mong kok, near MTR station and a walk from the markets

excellent rooms and service, probably 80% of the quality of the peninsula at 30% of the cost

decent breakfast at $30 aud if you prebook

Check out JJ Hotel in Wan Chai I stay there every year in December for the International horse racing. No food or bar but good size rooms and very clean. Easy walk to MTR and great eating and nightlife. Under $A100 a night.
