Hong Kong Hotels
Hotels in Hong Kong are as popular with the locals as they are with tourists. A lot of the best restaurants, bars and spas can be found in the city’s top stays, which mostly overlook Victoria Harbour. Many upscale spots in Hong Kong also serve delicious afternoon tea sets that are well worth trying. Boutique hotels are only just starting to take off and can be difficult to find. It’s a similar story for cheap stays as high rents means there are only a few around, usually in central locations.
The Hong Kong hotels below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over HK$3,000)
Moderate (HK$1,200 to HK$3,000)
Cheap (up to HK$1,200)
These Hong Kong hotel prices are for a double room per night, including breakfast but excluding service charge and tax, unless otherwise specified. All hotel bills in Hong Kong are subject to 10% service charge.
