    Cheap serviced apartment - Mong Kok or HK Island

    Hi,
    Due to having to renew my passport in HK I am having to stay there for 3-4 weeks, and I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a relatively cheap serviced apartment either around Mong Kok or on the island somewhere. Doesn't have to be too flash, but cheap is essential.
    (damn the new passport rules for British people!)
    Thanks!!!

    What are they?


    But to your question... what is your budget?

    Just that I think you have to 'surrender' your current passport whilst they are renewing it (before you could just keep you current one so you could travel.....hence being stranded slightly in Hong Kong!).

    Yes - I saw that in the FAQs - that would have been a major problem for me back in the days when I was filling up a passport in less than a year. I can't imagine trying to tell my employed that I would have to be essentially non-functional for two to three weeks for this reason.

    The FAQ also says the current processing time is 10 working days, so 3-4 weeks might be a bit of an overkill.
