Alternative Accomodation in HK

Hong Kong Travel Blog

 › entry 4 of 6 › view all entries

We choose our accomodation based on our travel needs.  It depends on our travel plan, who we are with,  length of stay, budget etc.   While hotels are categorized in stars, there are cheaper alternatives around.  And when we talk about alternatives, it's always easier to talk in terms of budget.

It's a fact that most of the time, tour packages (airfare+hotel combination) are economical.   But some hotels are offering discounts too for stays of more than 2 days or so.  Below are actual examples of hotel promotions: (as of this writing, 13Nov08):

The LKF Hotel - Central, HK, USD200 up

Cosmopolitan Hotel - Wanchai, HK USD87-125 up        [till March2009]

15% for a minimum of two-night stay at a Superior Room
30% for a minimum of four-night stay at a Deluxe Course View Room

Hotel Benito - Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, USD96 / Kimberley Hotel - Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, USD100

Wesley Hotel - Wanchai, HK, USD89-125

For people who might opt for lower than USD50 on accomodation, there quite a number of hostel houses that caters to students/youth.  Check this website for more details:  http://www.hostels.com/hk.html

YMCA, Salisbury - Apart from regular hotel rooms, they also have dormitory where they charge per bed (from HK240 per bed) http://www.ymcahk.org.hk/sales/html/e_DR.htm

Yes Inn Hostel - from HK$139 per person http://www.yesinn.com/hk/ehostel.htm

Anne Black YWCA - from HKD450 per room http://hotel.ywca.org.hk/eng/AnneBlack/anne_location.htm

Comfort Lodge - from HK$160 per bed http://www.comfortlodge.com/dailyrate.html

Cheap accomodation alternative does not have to be crappy, although finding a decent one can be difficult.  It pays to search the net for reviews from other people who had the actual experience before finally making any commitment.   

I welcome any questions you might have and will be glad to be of help in ways I can.
