Real estate doesn't come cheap in Hong Kong, and neither do its hotel rooms. This selection covers all budgets.
Island Shangri-La
Island Shangri-La is a handy city location? Tick. Excellent bar and facilities? Tick. Direct access to shops, restaurants and the MTR in Pacific Place? The hotel is even home to the world's largest Chinese silk painting, The Great Motherland of China, which spans 16 storeys. Everything about a stay at this hotel is memorable.
Langham Place
A five-star oasis in the Mong Kok district that is on its way to becoming a modern classic. Easy to spot from anywhere in town thanks to the bright pink dome on its roof — a handy navigation beacon for Hong Kong novices. A visit to its Chuan Spa is a must.
Mandarin Oriental
This Hong Kong icon was recently renovated and has rightfully reclaimed its spot as the place to stay at in Hong Kong. Even if you're not sleeping here, a drink in the Captain's Bar is a must. The MO represents old-school Hong Kong at its best.
This boutique belle in Causeway Bay has the right angles, styles and sounds to give you an achingly cool time in Honkers thanks to its Philippe Starck design.
The Fleming
Just a stone's throw from the craziness of Wan Chai's bars and nightlife, this 66-room designer property promises personal attention in spades. It is also home to Hong Kong's first female-only hotel floor; rather ironic considering the location.
LKF Hotel
Another of Hong Kong's newer boutique offerings. Set above Lan Kwai Fong, its small (and quiet) rooms are compensated for by the deluge of bars, restaurants and fun that's literally outside the front door. A cocktail at Azure on the 29th floor is a must. Don't forget your camera.
The Salisbury
This place is a YMCA, but not as you probably know them. Set next to the Peninsula Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, it features an indoor pool, cable television, private rooms and some of the best views in town, looking across Victoria Harbour to Hong Kong Island. You won't find better value in town.
Holiday Inn Golden Mile
This is the "ground zero" of Nathan Road: shopping, traffic, people and bright lights. Not that you'd know it in these quiet, recently renovated rooms just across the road from Tsim Sha Tsui MTR.
Hotel Jen
Arguably the best-value pick on Hong Kong Island just now. Newly opened in Sheung Wan, it is only five minutes from Central yet comes at a quarter of the price of most other conveniently located hotels. Request a harbour-facing room on the upper floor and spend the savings on shopping instead. It is a sister property to the Shangri-La so you know you are getting the quality, too.
