Value for money accommodation in Hong Kong

Besides from London, Paris, New York, Zurich, Copenhagen and Tokyo, Hong Kong is also well known with its high expenses in accommodation. My standard over a value for money accommodation different across different country & city, basically I will evaluate it based on the following:

  1. Price range will be set around medium +/- 10-20%
  2. Environment(no hill/slope, clean, quiet at night, safe)
  3. Location (convenient for traveling around, nearby the transportation that will use most)
  4. With private bathroom & toilet ( with supply of towel, hair dryer, kettle..etc.)
  5. Hospitality

To be realistic, I have wanted so much, the price wouldn’t be the lowest/cheapest, so I have set it at +/- 10-20% of the area medium price. Some of the requirements stated above could be compromise if another requirement has been fulfilled. To determine if the requirement has been met, I usually rely on the review/comment from booking.com/agoda.com/tripadvisor , most of the time the review/comment are just revealed the real situation.

Based on my requirements, I have filtered a few Hotel in Hong Kong which its prices ranged from USD94 -USD110 (price is as of checking in on 15th Feb & checking out on 21st Feb 2014, which is right after Chinese New Year of 2014).

 

Kowloon Island

Kowloon island is the area where I would recommend for most of the first timer/people who have their itinerary most on travel hot spots /prefer crowded & happening area. Transportation in Kowloon Island is well developed, and you could easily get cheap shelter here. I prefer to stay near to Yau Ma Tei or Jordan MRT station, so you could find I have more choices nearby these area.

Hong Kong Island

The housing rate in Hong Kong Island is much higher than in Kowloon Island, so the same thing goes to its hotel’s rate. There’s lesser travel attraction in Hong Kong Island and hence the place is much peaceful and the residence there are much friendly, so I highly recommend to people who prefer a better living environment. Don’t worry, if you wish to have a convenient access between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Island, you could filter the hotel located close to Admiralty, Central or Causeway Bay.
