boatHong Kong is a clash of cultures, which makes it a fascinating city to visit. It’s also a shopper’s and diner’s paradise, and is not a cheap city in general. There are lots of five-star hotels in Hong Kong which you might think are out of your reach, but here’s the good news – while there are certainly cheaper places you could stay in Hong Kong, the city’s five-star hotels are usually much cheaper than their counterparts in cities like New York, Paris or London. So why not splurge a little and enjoy yourself?

On the other hand, if three- or four-star hotels are more your speed, there are plenty to choose from. No matter what level of luxury you seek, there is a Hong Kong hotel to suit your needs. The most expensive areas of the city are on Hong Kong Island, and the cheaper hotels are concentrated in Kowloon and the New Territories. Anywhere you go, don’t be surprised to find a smaller room than you might expect in other cities – accommodations at all levels are smaller than what you might be used to.

The busiest times in Hong Kong tend to be the shoulder seasons – March-April and September-October – so you might end up paying more for your room during those months than during the Winter low season. So, to get the most bang for your buck, consider braving the chilly air and visiting during the Winter.

Another way to save money is to stay in smaller hotels with fewer stars than you might ordinarily stay in. Most of the hotels in Hong Kong are clean and comfortable, though they may not boast harbor views or have swimming pools, so if you are not going to be spending much time in your hotel anyway it makes sense to not spend a fortune on it, right? Generally speaking, the biggest drawback of staying in a Hong Kong hotel that has fewer stars is that it’ll be a little further away from the things you want to do and see in the city. But as long as the hotel is close to public transportation, you’ll be fine.

Expect to pay about HK$ 479 (US$ 65) for a night in a double room in a 3 star hotel located in Kowloon district. On Hong Kong Island expect to pay HK$ 1,625 (US$ 218) for a night in a double room in a 3 star hotel.
