We (two 30 something women) will be in Hong Kong (for the first time) in late July. Want to stay on Hong Kong island in or near Central. I would like to stay in "best" hotel for maximum USD$100 a night. Any suggestions? Ideally with a pool, considering it will be very hot in late July. Thank you!!
Hi Roni, hotels in Central are expensive and there's limited options for $100. The best choice is probably Hotel ibis Hong Kong Central and Sheung Wan , clean, newer and if you book early they have city view rooms under $100 or harbor view rooms for a bit more. There's a Starbucks on the ground floor for morning coffee. Another option in that price range is probably the Holiday Inn Express Hong Kong Soho. Both are close enough Central, Lan Kwai Fong and the Mid-Levels; the nearby Sheung Wan metro stop will take you anywhere.
Mentioned in this answer:
Your best bet is probably Bishop Lei international house or some of the Sheung Wan hotels like butterfly on hollywood or iplus. If you are lucky you can get an IBIS room for about $100 but those run out fast.
