- Can anyone recommend a cheap hotel in Hong Kong ?
Going off to Hong Kong for a few days, at the end of April / beginning of May, and need somewhere to stay. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations for hotels or similar. Not too expensive would be ideal, but don’t want to slum it too hard either.
Never been before, so I’ve no idea what I’m looking for, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Used it extensively in Indonesia and Singapore. Lovely places, very cheap. Best deal was a two-building private villa with maid service and pool in Bali, less than £200 for the week. Similarly, 3 nights in someone’s spare room in Singapore for £40 when hotels were double that per night.iain1775Subscriber
I wouldn’t recommend ShaTin after staying there for 3 weeks with work recently
Yes it’s not central which can be nice as its quieter but last MTR from HK island is at 10.30pm and taxis whilst reasonable can be a PITA, few times I had to get a cross river taxi and then a second taxi back
Not much to do in Shatin itself other than a shopping centre (full of Chinese mainlanders who come down on the train with huge wheeled suitcases) the Temple of 10,000’s Buddhas, and a museum, both of which are good for an hour or two max
If your only there a few days you really want to be down around TST or on the island rather than wasting 40 minutes each way on the MTR
Fantastic city, loads to see and absorb, Great mountain biking tooPosted 3 years agonickdaviesSubscriber
Where do you need to be/want to stay? What kind of budget?
Wharney Guangdong is my usual on the island, it’s in the middle of it all and probably the cheapest you’ll get that’s in the centre but not a dump. (Don’t expect much for the £50 a night it’ll cost you though!) Kowloon side the Guangdong in TST is the same. Little bit out from the action on the island you’ll find stuff like the harbour plaza, cosmo and cosmopolitan all decent for not huge money. That’s assuming your on business travel, or only doing a short trip and want to be in the hub of it.
If you want to be a bit further out then north of Kowloon you’ll find decent stuff for less money, but I wouldn’t know where to go up there. I tend to find British Airways are giving the best rates at the moment, i’ve booked the last few trips through them.Posted 3 years agoantigeeMember
not quite budget but good value in a great location
the YMCA! (young man!)

Have stayed at the YWCA (young woman!) which had a pool. About £59 a night.Posted 3 years ago
Or for a little more £75 a night the Cosmopolitan does a great buffet breakfast and can be found for cheap as part of a BA flights hotels package.
Both are central enough for the tourist stuff, the cosmopolitan is slightly better placed. I would happily stay at either again.trailofdestructionMember
Thanks for all the replies. Never been there before, and only going for a few days to see some friends who are working out there, so somewhere central would be pretty good.
Not too fussed about quality, as I’ll only be using it for sleeping, although clean and safe would be nice. Budget wise, between £60 – £100 a night would be ok.
I’ll check out some of your suggestions later on tonight.
Seriously, STW really is the best place to ask these sort of questions.
Thanks again everyone.Posted 3 years agobrantSubscriber
