Where to Find the Cheapest Hotels in Hong Kong?

Check the prices online. Compare. Compare. Compare.

Or just go to the Chunking Mansions, a complex of several buildings where tens of cheap hotels could be found. For the lowest rates head over to the place and ask. From my own experience, this way it’s possible to find a room/bed for as little as 50% of what you would pay when booking online. Just enter the building and ask the first person – I need a room, can you help me?

This is also where you should be looking if you want to find the cheapest hotel in Hong Kong near Kowloon. Chunking Mansions complex is located in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, a major tourist hub in Hong Kong. Which means that by staying there you’ll not only find a cheap accomodation in Hong Kong, but you’ll also be very centrally located, close to many of the main tourist attractions in Hong Kong.

Have you been to Hong Kong? Where did you stay? In which area of Hong Kong? What’s the best cheap hotel in Hong Kong in your experience?

1. Book Your Flight. Find cheap flights using Kiwi.com, Momondo.com. Or subscribe to Dollar Flight Club, if you don’t want to be searching for the flights yourself. Kiwi currently is my first choice.

2. Book Your Accommodation. Booking.com, Agoda.com and Airbnb. I use Booking and Agoda at least a dozen times a year, and Airbnb – when looking for a long-term stay. My best tip is to ALWAYS compare the price. Sometimes the same hotel is cheaper on Booking.com, other times – on Agoda. Always compare the price!

3. Buy Your Travel Insurance. World Nomads and SafetyWings are two companies I can recommend. World Nomads offers some extra benefits, that will be important for those doing some higher risk activities, while SafetyWings is significantly cheaper. SafetyWings is only $9.25 / week.
