The air of cool that Hong Kong gives off is what draws us to its Wong Kar Wai painted shores. And there’s nothing cooler than a budget-luxury hotel. The following seven affordable, modern hotels are great for every type of traveller!
Budget-luxury Hong Kong for everyone
Best budget-luxury hotel for families
In the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Butterfly On Prat is for travellers who don’t want to skip a beat during their time in this fast-paced city. On top of its unbeatable location, rooms are spacious and sleep families of four. Families and solo travellers alike will appreciate how well connected they are with the hotel’s offering of portable Wi-Fi, a free handy phone, and tips from in-house “local ambassadors”.

Best budget-luxury hotel for shoppers
Only 10 minutes from shopper’s paradise Tsim Sha Tsui in the residential Hung Hom district is Hotel Sáv. A quiet neighbourhood hotel, this is the perfect accommodation option for a good night’s rest with easy access to the centre. Ideal for families, guests will enjoy views of the Victoria Harbour from tastefully accented rooms, some of which are designed by local artists. Dads don’t have to worry about forgetting the family’s travel HDMI cable – there’s plenty to watch on your Apple TV!
Best hotel for couples & cultural travellers
Silvermine Beach Resort is a nice choice for holidaymakers looking for an authentic slice of Hong Kong given its location in the cultural town of Mui Wo. The historic Tai O fishing village is on the other side of Lantau Island, the island the hotel is situated on, which is also where Disneyland and the airport are. This resort is ideal for outdoorsy couples and families alike given its direct access to water sports, hiking trails and a children’s pool.

Best budget-luxury hotel for a view
Claiming L’hotel Nina to be Hong Kong’s foremost budget-luxury hotel is no tall-tale (this would have been a better pun if the building succeeded in becoming the world’s tallest, but alas). Perfect for the whole family, the hotel boasts high ceilings and oversized beds that accommodate 2 adults and 2 children with lots of room to spare – quite a luxury in Asia’s Gotham city. Not to be forgotten are the spectacular views over the city and outlying islands and infinity pool.

Best budget-luxury hotel for large groups
The kids will be delighted in seeing all the animals they’ve probably just learned about at the Noah’s Ark theme park. This hotel offers a variety of room sizes, including an eight-person room, means every type of traveller, from groups to couples, will be well housed here. Well, when the theme of the park is based on an ark that comfortably housed pairs of animals during a rough sea voyage, then we expect the hotel to do the same!
Best budget-luxury hotel for sightseers
Near Hong Kong’s Gold Coast and overlooking the Tsing Ma Bridge, Royal View is ideal for sightseers as it’s smack dab in the middle of the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Cars, Tsim Sha Tsui and the airport. Also near Disneyland, the hotel is a great base for families whose trip to Hong Kong revolves around seeing Cinderella’s Castle. And while not staying at Disneyland Resort, the kids can still enjoy sleeping in themed rooms as Royal View has a range of them including a Racing Car room equipped with arcade games!
Best hotel for authentic Chinese food
Rooms at the Harbour Plaza Resort City start off at a spacious 36m², each of which has a cosy dining area. Families of four should book the Family Room which is the only room option with one king-sized bed and two single beds. When hunger pains hit, there’s no need to leave the property. Not just any Chinese restaurant, the hotel’s Hakka Hut showcases Hakka cuisine – a must-try in Hong Kong, home to a majority of the Hakka clan. An outdoor pool makes for a complete family hotel experience.
