Hong Kong hotel fun!
In a city like Hong Kong, hotels are dime a dozen. You can find loads of them everywhere, with all your modern amenities – but after some time, they all begin to look the same.
If you’re looking to jazz up your next trip to Hong Kong, and perhaps see parts of it you’ve never seen before, check yourself into a boutique hotel instead. With their stylish interiors and cosy decor, going back to your room after an exciting day out will be the icing on the cake of an incredible vacation.
Here are 11 boutique hotels in Hong Kong to take your trip to a whole new level.
1. The Jervois
Designed by designer Christian Liaigre, The Jervois is 15-minute walk away from Lan Kwai Fong. The hotel was designed with privacy in mind, featuring simple clean lines, leather and wood, with custom furnishings that make it a place as beautiful as it is functional.
Their rooms are all suites, so it’s a little on the pricey side. Still, you get what you pay for – a gorgeous hotel with a great location.
Located in Tin Hau, Tuve is minimalism at its finest. Made with raw materials like concrete and oxidised metal, it takes the industrial chic to a whole new stylish level, with a quiet, understated simplicity. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of a regular hotel, but it has all modern conveniences, like free WiFi and a smartphone equipped with unlimited local calls you can take with you on the go.
3. Butterfly on Hollywood
With pop art-inspired walls and filmstrip accents running across your room, Butterfly on Hollywood adds a touch of glitzy whimsy to any HK trip. Located in Sheung Wan and just walking distance to the boutique, hipster areas of the city, you’re never too far from the best eats and buys that Hong Kong has to offer.
4. Cue Hotel
Offering both private rooms and hostel-style dorms, Cue Hotel is located in Wanchai, just a stone’s throw away from the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Golden Bauhinia Square, and glorious views of the pier. Blending Eastern and Western design sensibilities, the hotel serves as a canvas for artists in Asia, featuring artwork from various artists on its walls.
Cue Hotel is also right in the middle of the city area, surrounded by noted skyscrapers and landmarks, so it’s an excellent location to serve as the base of your Hong Kong adventure.
5. Twenty One Whitfield
Twenty One Whitfield may not be near the excitement of Hong Kong, given its location near Fortress Hill – but it has an amazing view of the Victoria Harbour to make up for it.
Designed by interior designer Joseph Fung, the hotel is all about maximising space and optimising comfort, featuring unique low beds and full-length windows that let you wake up to a breathtaking sight.
6. Butterfly on Wellington
Unlike its louder, bolder sister, Butterfly on Hollywood, Butterfly on Wellington is far more traditional. With an emphasis on wooden textures and muted decor, it’s a classy place for a lovely stay. Plus, it has an excellent location right in the heart of Central Hong Kong, with easy access to areas like SoHo and The Peak Tram.
7. Madera Hollywood
Madera Hotel’s cooler, more colourful sister, Madera Hollywood’s exterior can be seen from a mile away. It has themed rooms inspired by Hollywood stars, and is also located in Hollywood Road, giving it prime access to the exciting parts of Hong Kong Island. The hotel is walking distance to the nightlife district of Lan Kwai Fong, and is also near all the delicious food the city has to offer.
They only offer suites, so they’re definitely more pricey, but it’s money well spent for a unique boutique hotel experience.
8. Lan Kwai Fong Hotel @ Kau U Fong
Considering the hotel’s name, it’s location is a given – Lan Kwai Fong Hotel is walking distance to Lan Kwai Fong, and attractions like PMQ and SoHo, as well as areas like the International Financial Centre and the ferry terminal. With a distinctly Oriental vibe that combines the best of traditional Chinese design aesthetics with our modern comforts, it’s a convenient stay right in the heart of town.
9. Hotel Sav
Inside Hotel Sav’s commonplace-looking exterior lies a special series of rooms known as The Sav Collection, featuring eco-friendly rooms and environmentally-friendly decor and facilities.
There are also different gallery rooms, where each room is designed around a theme and artworks are showcased, and these change all the time. Currently, they’ve got Charity rooms, where part of the proceeds goes to organisations like the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Their themed rooms are limited though, so book ahead to avoid disappointment!
10. The Luxe Manor
Nestled between Tsim Sha Tsui and Yau Ma Tei, The Luxe Manor brings you European luxury right in the heart of Hong Kong, with easy access to great eats and tourist attractions. You’ll feel like you’re a in a real countryside manor, with faux fireplaces, carpets, red curtains, and plush furniture. If you’re looking for a hotel in Hong Kong that’s vastly different from anything else, this is the one for you.
11. Ovolo Southside
A warehouse turned hotel, Ovolo Southside remains true to its origins, with an industrial vibe full of wood and concrete. Tucked away in the Aberdeen area, it’s definitely out of the way – but it’s walking distance to Ocean Park, and the hotel provides complimentary shuttle services to Central Hong Kong, so you’ll have easy access to the city all the same.
Plus, there’s a new MTR station coming up near the hotel soon, Ovolo Southside just got a lot more convenient.
