by | Feb 28, 2021 | 0 comments

Want to know which are the best cheapest hotels in Hong Kong? You’re in the right spot!

Hong Kong is one of the world’s most expensive cities, so it’s no surprise why Hong Kong hotels are so pricey.

Hong Kong has so many luxurious, gorgeous 5-star hotels like The Upper House, The Rosewood, and St Regis, but a one-night stay at hotels like these can cost you more than US$600 for a single night!

That’s why it is important to know more affordable or “within-budget” hotel alternatives in Hong Kong.

Here, we tell you the best, affordable hotels in different and popular areas in Hong Kong, including:

  • Mid-Levels
  • Sheung Wan
  • Sai Ying Pun
  • Aberdeen
  • Wan Chai
  • Kennedy Town


1. One of the best cheapest hotels in Hong Kong: Mid Levels

Bishop Lei InternationalWhy we chose it:

  • Bishop Lei provides value for money. The rooms are small and clean, and the hotel is centrally located in Hong Kong’s hustle and bustle district.
  • The hotel is a 3-minute walk to the Central Hong Kong escalator and a 10-minute walk to Soho so, you’ll be surrounded by some of the best restaurants and bars in town.
  • The hotel also offers a shuttle bus service to and from Hong Kong Airport Express Station and Admiralty.

What we like:

  • Mid-Levels location
  • Quiet neighborhood
  • Price
  • Gym
  • Pool

What we don’t like:

  • Small rooms


  • The hotel’s location is very convenient and gives you access to the whole of Central within a short walk. 
  • Prices are relatively inexpensive; for a standard Queen Room, you can pay as little as ~HK$765 (+10% tax) per night.
  • The hotel does have a pool, but those looking for a pamper session might be disappointed to know it doesn’t offer any spa services.

Bishop Lei International location: 4 Robinson Road, Mid-Levels, Hong Kong.


2. One of the best cheapest hotels in Hong Kong: Sheung Wan

Travelodge, Hollywood Road

Why we chose it:

  • Located between Sheung Wan and Central, Travelodge Hollywood Road is surrounded by plenty of late-night drinking holes, art galleries, antique shops, and artisan coffee joints.
  • The hotel has modern and trendy decor — but rooms can get crowded if you’re traveling with the family since they’re on the smaller side. 

What we like:

  • Location – you’ll be spoilt by the restaurant and entertainment options available in Sheung Wan
  • Price
  • Sleek interiors
  • Even though it’s a budget hotel, they add little extras like bottles of water and muffins for breakfast.

What we don’t like:

  • No gym
  • Small rooms


  • It’s a very well-located budget hotel; close to Man Mo Temple, Cat Street, antique stores, and plenty of quirky cafes. If you love wandering and exploring, the location of this hotel will not disappoint. 
  • Service is considerate; many people do repeat stays.
  • Comfortable beds, hot water, and good water pressure; given the prices, you’re unlikely to be disappointed.

Travelodge, Hollywood Road Location: 263 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong.


3. One of the best budget hotels in Hong Kong: Sai Ying Pun

Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel is one of the best budget hotels in Hong Kong.

  • Overall, it’s a large hotel located in a fabulous location in the heart of Wan Chai.
  • There are plenty of amenities and F&B options; pricing is great, probably because the hotel needs an overhaul.
  • Wan Chai is itself fun; there’s the Star Street area near Pacific Place 3, a trendy area for dining and drinking.
