HK - affordable "outer" areas for accommodation

Jump to last reply

We're looking at Fortress Hill, Mong Kok near Prince Edward station or even discussed Sha Tin, having exhausted our search in the nearer areas of Hong Kong island

If these were your choices for accommodation, which would you choose? Or other suggestions?

There are three of us (1 adults and an eight year old) and in HK, that seems to filter our choices by quite a bit. A lot of them seem not to do an extra bed due to the room size or increase the price considerably to do so. The YMCA price went from $224 AUD to $1024 AUD by adding our daughter into the search, for instance. We're trying to keep the budget under 1,300 HKD per night for our two night stay. Tail end of a longer trip.

Harbourside hotels or around Central would be great of course, but not realistic. So a "taste of HK" in an neighbourhood where it's not a snooze or dodgy to walk around, a comfortable room and good transport to those better known areas will suffice. (if possible)

We thought we had this nailed with a Causeway Bay Inn stay... but as well as it's reviewed, we arrive at nearly midnight and it's not a hotel in the sense of having a front desk or staff onsite. So someone is meant to meet you with a key, more like 3 individual serviced apartments. Decided we should rethink that bit as we couldn't figure out a contingency plan if no one showed up.

Thanks
