Boutique hotels in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a dense city jam-packed with sights to see and things to do, but while feasting, shopping and the like take top priority, there’s no need to settle for regular hotels or hostels the next time you’re there.

From ultra-mod industrial chic to old-world glamour, here’s a list of 7 boutique hotels in Hong Kong with rooms from as low as S$56 that prove that there’s more to the hotel scene than meets the eye.

1. The Fleming, Wan Chai – Old-world, maritime-themed hotel

The Fleming could very well be the lovechild of the movies Titanic and The Great Gatsby. Just one step through the front door and you’ll be greeted with a maritime-themed interior that oozes old-world charm and grandeur that’ll have you feeling as though you’ve stepped through a time portal to the 1920s.

The hotel’s interior was inspired by the Star Ferry, one of Hong Kong’s oldest commercial ships that has been transporting people from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon and back since 1888. Some distinct ferry features you might find here are the curved doorways, circular mirrors and brass fittings.

Minimalism. If that’s how you roll then check out the industrial-chic Tuve. The mantra here is “less is more” and almost everything is greyscale, save for the occasional pops of brown from their wooden furnishings.

Furnishing is kept to a minimum, even in the rooms, but you’ll be able to look forward to value-adds such as bath amenities from luxury brand LE LABO and complimentary smartphones – these come loaded with unlimited calls and are available for free use during your stay.

Hong Kong is infamous for its teeny-tiny accommodations. But if you pick hotels with rooms designed right, you won’t be feeling all that claustrophobic. 

Mini Hotel at Causeway Bay has cleverly designed spaces that feel larger than they actually are – the rooms are equal parts cosy and might have you spending just as much time in as you spend out. It’s also an affordable option for budget travellers with rooms priced from just HK$330 (~S$56).

Room features that add to the illusion of a large space include glass-walled bathrooms as well as clever storage spaces beneath the beds in their Smart Queen Room for you to stow your luggage out of sight and free up more floor space.

Neon signs, brick walls and a wonderfully quirky, zebra – or giraffe – who knows? – statue greets you at the retro Eaton Hong Kong. Situated between Jordan and Yau Ma Tei MTR station, this hotel with postmodern vibes has a colour-blocked interior, as well as an eclectic collection of life-sized animal statues.

When it comes to hotels, one of the most important features is the pool. A plus point if it’s pretty, and plus another point if it’s on the highest floor. Their Wes Anderson-esque pool is splashed in a pastel shade of blue and decorated with quirky flamingos giving you epic opportunities to level-up your IG feed.

They always say, the further you travel out of the city, the bigger the houses are. The same goes for hotels.

Hong Kong, like Singapore, has a pretty tight land space. If you love a spacious room with lots of space to unwind at the end of the day, you’ll love Ovolo Southside, a revamped warehouse-turned-hotel.

The artsy hotel is located just 22 minutes away from Central by public transport.
