Everyone knows that accommodation in Hong Kong is very expensive and not every traveler can afford it. That is why here, like nowhere else, Airbnb's service for finding apartments is relevant. Of course, a single traveler can check into a hostel for $ 30, and a married couple in a budget hotel for $ 50, but you yourself understand what these conditions will be. I once lived in this guest an area of several square meters with a shower over the toilet.
So, if a family with children is traveling, when you need space (and housing is all cramped in Hong Kong) and a full kitchen, then, in my opinion, it is better to rent an apartment in Hong Kong, and not book a hotel. Because a hotel of the same level will be prohibitively expensive..

In general, I made the following conclusion: 1 bedroom apartment or studio will cost about $ 80-100, double $ 100-150 and more. We are talking about the city center or near it. Of course, it also depends on the region, but not drastically. To save a little, you can settle completely on the outskirts, there are also options there..
For $ 200 / day you get a two-bedroom apartment, large by the standards of Hong Kong (this is important to us, we slept separately). We also had two bathrooms (optional, but convenient), a fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, rice cooker, toaster), a washing machine with a drying function, hot water, 3 air conditioners in the bedrooms and living room (very convenient that you can turn on where there is no one now), a huge TV with 5.1 speakers and a balcony with a so-so view, but still a balcony.
In general, very comfortable conditions, where it is quite possible to live without straining. Eh, I would have lived in Hong Kong for several months ... Separately, I was also glad for our accommodation, because it is also more convenient to get sick in comfort, and not in a trash hotel (we took turns sick for a couple of days). By the way, I really liked the wide window sills under the large windows, where you can sit and look out the window or use it as a shelf for storing something.
Of the minuses, I see only one thing - the owner constantly lives in the apartment, probably he rents it only when he leaves. Because of this, the apartment is full of his belongings, drawers, cupboards are occupied, there was one shelf in the refrigerator with his products. Thus, if you are used to completely unpacking your suitcases and you have a lot of things, then putting them all out is not a fact that it will work out. The owner freed us only half a wardrobe in each bedroom..
Gym, pool, view
In addition to comfortable accommodation, you get a gym with a great view from the window. Imagine running on a treadmill and looking into a beautiful distance. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to the gym, it wasn’t at all. There is also a pool, it is small, but quite for itself, enough to swim.
And most importantly, there is a rooftop deck with stunning views from the 44th floor! View from the series «Wow» 🙂 In principle, you can no longer go to other observation platforms, this view is enough. You can come here with a bottle of wine or juice, depending on what you drink, and sit in a romantic setting with your family. There are chairs, wicker sofas, a live lawn. The fence is quite high, you can come with children.

Other apartments in Hong Kong
Here's more for you my selection of other apartments (including budget ones), which we considered, but discarded in favor of the option described above. Most of the apartments I was looking for were located on Hong Kong Island and near the Wan Chai metro. We chose this area for ourselves, as there is a supermarket nearby, a ferry Star ferry, who walks to the Kowloon Peninsula before Avenue of Stars, two metro stops to Central, a couple of tram stops to HongKong Park and to the tram (Peak Tram), which goes to Victoria Peak.
P.S. There are a lot of apartments in Hong Kong, so you can always find what you need on Airbnb. Well, or do you still prefer hotels, then RoomGuru to help.
