Butterfly on Prat
This is the best hotel on our best hotels in Kowloon list so start your search here. Butterfly on Prat feels more boutique than budget thanks to stylish rooms that feature queen sized beds, fancy toiletries and iPhone docks to plug into the sound system. And, while Hong Kong rooms are famously small, you’ll at least find room here to park your luggage and move around. The location is minutes from the MTR and well placed to explore Tsim Sha Tsui on foot.
If you’re willing to stay a little further north in Jordan (although still close to the MTR, as well as some of Hong Kong’s best markets) then the Hotel Stage offers a fantastic stay at fantastic prices. From the designer art in the lobby to the designer furniture in your room, Hotel Stage has catwalk style with Scandinavian simplicity. Fancy showers and in-room Nespresso coffee machines are just two of the fancier touches, while the beds come with the sort of thread count that lets you sink and sleep. The hotel doubles as a high brow art and cultural centre so don’t be surprised to find pop up art exhibitions in the wine bar or animated conversations in the elevator. You’ll need to be flexible with dates to find room for under $100.
The Dorsett Mongkok
Found in what is Hong Kong’s most exciting or most infuriating neighbourhood depending on your point of view, the Dorsett is your ticket to some time in Mongkok. The streets here are packed; heaving with street traders, markets and people – it’s Hong Kong at its best if you can stand the crowds. The Dorsett has all the hallmarks of a chain in all the right ways; staff are friendly, rooms are well appointed and everything from check in to breakfast works smoothly. They’ll even let you have breakfast in their lounge if you’re checking in early.
Harbour Bay Hotel
If you’re looking for a budget stay with a little luxury, head for the Harbour Bay Hotel. Between the bell boys on arrival and the rain shower in your room, the Harbour Bay Hotel adds some four-star touches to your budget stay. The rooms are small, but well appointed with pine cupboards, crisp white bedding and even a free one-use mini bar. The location is ideal – seconds from the attractions of Nathan Road and just round the corner from the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR for further exploration.
Clean, central and reliably under $100 about sums up InnSight. Rooms are modern if small and do come with their quirks. In the cheapest doubles, the bathroom is screened by glass but you’ll need to pull a curtain to maintain your privacy – and the romance of your marriage. There are the usual fixtures and fittings that you’ll find in a hotel, including big screen TV and complimentary toiletries, but there is no gym or restaurant on site. There is a hostel vibe thanks to the prices, but all rooms are private and it’s quiet at night.
