    Cheap hotels in HK

    Hey all,

    I am looking for a cheap hotel in HK for a friend. Preferably in Prince Edward, Mong Kok, Yau Ma Tei, or Jordan area.

    Or any good websites that will offer the cheapest rates.

    I usually go to agoda.com but looking for others. Thanks!

    If you have a HKID card, you can go into any chain travel agents (China travel/ Hong Thai/ Sunflower etc..) and ask for HK resident short break packages in HK hotels. They'll have a long list for you to choose according to your friend's budget.

    Generally works out upto 10% cheaper then budget hotel websites as they got special deals or affiliations or something.

    You have to be there to check in with them, but I don't class this as a problem for you?

    90% of them would speak English, this is HK not some 3rd world city... If they don't entertain you, then move to the one next door!

    It's only a problem if you think it's a problem!

    Separate note. You interested in drinks tonight in TST - have a good mixture of people (15ish so far) coming. Check out Hong Kong GeoExpat - Drinks. TST. Friday 2nd Oct. 9pm onwards. for the meeting place.

    We can discuss your broken Canto there!
