Hong Kong Hotel
Be it a family holiday or the Chinese New Year celebration, you will need a few days to bask in the merriment of Hong Kong. For accommodations that will suit your style and budget, here are a few options:
Cosmo Hotel, Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai
Two highlights of staying at the Cosmo: close proximity to the shopping district of Causeway Bay and Happy Valley Racecourse, and having the access to what they deem as among the best local restaurants, the La Maison de l’Orient. Rates start at HK$580 a night and will cost you an estimated HK$235 from the airport if you go there by taxi. If you’d rather go for luxury, then prefer to stay at their more upscale hotel, the Cosmopolitan.
The Salisbury, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
It is 33 minutes away from the airport and taxi rates would be about HK$200. With starting room rates at HK$800, your stay wouldn’t at least be as pricey and luxurious as its neighbor, The Peninsula Hotel. Quite tempting to stay at The Pen but with budget in mind, The Salisbury can take care of your needs. In addition, you’ll still be at a prime spot where Hong Kong is bustling.
Royal Park Hotel, Pak Hok Ting Street, Sha Tin
The Royal Park Hotel is a 30-minute cab ride from the airport that would cost about HK$210. It may be 20 minutes away from the heart of the city but it has just as much offerings as the main streets. The famous floating restaurant is just nearby, as well as the City Art Square. Room rates start at HK$1,000 per night.
There are tons of accommodation choices in Hong Kong that can suit small to larger travel groups. Plan your travel ahead and do your assignment by researching online to score great deals. Choose hotels that are friendly to your pockets and will easily be accessible to the attractions. This will reduce your transportation costs such as your taxi fares. Also, bear in mind that the peak seasons would denote an increase in room rates.
