    Can Anyone recommend a CHEAP hotel within easy travelling distance to CENTRAL pls?

    Hi there,

    Can anyone recommend a good cheap hotel that is clean, has good public transport links and access to Central please?

    I am on a tight budget and will be visiting HK for several back-to-back meetings in Central. I am looking at accomodation from 14th June - 23/24th June, 2008

    Thanks,

    Ed

    Ps. Hope you all have a lovely public holiday!

    Try www.hotel.com.hk and choose the ones on the hongkong island side.
    Choose one that's close to a subway station on the island and you could expect commute time below 30 minutes.
    Map to the subway system MTR

    Or, depending on how cheap, then there are many places in Chungking / Mirador Mansions that are within 20 minutes of Central. This are fine if all you need is a bed and a shower.

    Not sure what you condsider cheap, but the Holiday Inn Express in Causeway Bay (literally next to Times square mall) is quite reasonable. THe rooms are clean and relatively new, and the price is around something like 110 USD a night. You're right next to the CB MTR and near a lively area.

    1. Usually i stay at the YMCA in Tsim Sha Tsui. 2 mins walking from the ferry to central and exellent value for money. (sea view!). Always correct pricing and handling of the bills as far as my experience goes.

    2. Recently Ive booked through Hong Kong Hotels - Asia Travel Hotel Reservation

    Prices seem good. Hopefully the hotel will receive the booking and all goes well

    Isn't Mingle the renamed Eden on Wellington Street?

    If so then that's a "love hotel": bookable by the hour. Bring earplugs.
