Hong Kong can be a very expensive city, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great budget hotels in the city. Here are the best budget hotels in Hong Kong.
Commune Hong Kong – $37/nt/person
In a new take on the hostel, this co-living space is unlike any hostel I visited in my college years. Designated as “co-living”, Commune delivers a premium experience in a shared environment.
Males and females are separated into different bedrooms with similar layouts but differing design patterns. Each room has four bunk beds with shared common areas to work and relax. The rooms are stylish and modern with the creature comforts of a full-service hotel but at shared living prices.
Commune offers a restaurant with price points and dining options that serve their market – quality but affordable. A fitness center allows guests to stay fit, and those who prefer to swim laps can head to Commune’s outdoor pool. West of Tsuen Wan, the Commune on Castle Peak Rd has a rare harbour view that is difficult to find with many hotels in the city, let alone shared “co-living” venues.
Heading to Wan Chai? Here is our list of Best Hotels In Wan Chai.
Ramada by Wyndham Hong Kong Grand Harbour View – $47
In Hong Kong’s North Point neighborhood, the Ramada by Wyndham Hong Kong Grand Harbour View gives guests an affordable, reliable option in the city. Other properties are available at this price point, and other properties offer these services, but none offer both in this area of Hong Kong Island.
On the north shore not far from famous Nathan Road, the Grand Harbour View gives guests access to some of the busiest areas of the city, short trips across the water to Kowloon and just a few metro stops away from the Airport Express train.
As a full-service hotel, the property has an outdoor pool high above the street level. Additionally, the hotel has a fitness centre for guests, hundreds of rooms, and several in-house restaurants.
For those looking for a full hotel experience in a great location on a budget, the Ramada by Wyndham Hong Kong Grand Harbour View might be the right choice.
Royal View Hotel – $31
A surprisingly complete property, the Royal View Hotel is just down the road from Commune but also on Castle Peak Rd. The hotel has more full-service offerings than any of the other cheap hotels in Hong Kong.
Along the coast, it features a sea-facing view, a large outdoor pool, and fitness center, four full service-restaurants, and may be more family-friendly than other properties.
Private rooms are also more affordable than competitors who may utilize shared rooms to achieve a lower price point. Unlike hostels that share bathrooms, the Royal View is no hostel, and each room offers en suite facilities.
For those who may want a little more space, the hotel offers serviced apartments as well.
The hotel has shuttle services to shopping malls in Tsim Sha Tsui and Tsuen Wan. Chep Lok International Airport and Disneyland Hong Kong are short drives away.
Residence G – $63
An absolutely stunning property, Residence G welcomes sophisticated guests a budget experience in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. Surrounded by premium shopping, connections to mainland China by express train or the Airport Express, Residence G is perfect for cosmopolitan guests.
Black metallic styling, white tile finishes, and wood accents give customers a feeling of a premium boutique property (like Upper House) at a price point that wouldn’t cover breakfast elsewhere.
Due to its advantageous surroundings and high levels of quality design, Residence G has to use space in an intelligent way to compensate for smaller rooms. Dining tables near a kitchenette may double as a work desk (with a drawer on the other side.) For enhanced storage, drawers underneath the bed utilize excess space and remove the need for a bulky dresser.
The hotel offers breakfast and a communal work space for those who want to work outside their rooms.
The property is hands down one of the best values in the city, especially in Kowloon.
The Fleming – $85
In Wan Chai, The Fleming is one of the most impressive boutique hotels in Hong Kong. Despite dozens of visits to the city, I’ve yet to find one that delivers as much value for money as this hotel.
The location is ideal. It’s just a fifteen-minute walk to the heart of Hong Kong Island’s Central business district (where visitors can catch the Airport Express. It’s an easy shorter five-minute walk to the Convention Centre, and the ferry terminal with quick transport across Victoria Harbour on the Star Ferry.
The hotel is on the corner of Gloucester Rd, walking distance to Causeway Bay or Admiralty MTR stations and hundreds of restaurants, night clubs, and bars in what is considered to be the expatriate and entertainment neighborhood. But its proximity isn’t even what makes it such a great hotel.
Updated modern guest rooms in a neo-art deco style give guests a premium five-star experience for a three-star price. Polished brass, deep reds, and greens with modern touches like convenient access to outlets and USB charging stations give guests the best of both worlds.
And of course, beautiful glass windows with Victoria Harbour views don’t hurt either.
