Hotels in Hong Kong

Hotels in Hong Kong

My girlfriend and I are flying from Xiamen to Hong Kong June 18-20. What hotels or hostels would you guys recommend for such a short stay? From what I've seen it's around 30 minutes in a taxi to the city from the airport which will be expensive, so we're not sure whether to stay near the airport or head into the city.

Which areas of Hong Kong would you say is good for staying in? Preferably as cheap as possible and in a relatively decent location.

Many thanks

What makes you think taxi from the airport will be expensive? If you stay near the airport, you'd have to get to the city everyday. Won't that be even more expensive? Besides, there are only three hotels near the airport, and they are all on the expensive side.

What is your hotel budget? Look for hotels in the Mongkok area of the city.

Or indeed one of the many bus routes from the airport to many regions of the territory.

Buses from the airport to various parts of the city probably work best for travelers on budget.

Cheap and decent are subjective terms. Do a search on any hotel website to see what suits your budget.

Taxi is quite reasonable at around $250-300 to the hotels in Kowloon, $50 more for Hong Kong Island. Not expensive at all. Bus A21 which covers most hotels in Kowloon is cheaper at just $33 a person.
