Hotel in HK for less than US$100/night?

I'm just wondering if it's possible to get a cheap room in HK for less than US$100/night in mid-late December? I would prefer to stay near a subway station.

Ibis, Holiday Inn Express etc will probably fit your budget.

The Ibis on North Point, maybe, but the Ibis in Sheung Wan or the HIXs generally run over $100 USD especially when the ++ is thrown in. Maybe on the right nonrefundable rate...

Sometimes the Dorsett properties (like in Mongkok) will be around $100 all-in. They aren't always as close to a subway station as Chungking and Mirador, though (and you can get those two places for REALLY cheap, and if OP doesn't mind a very small room possibly without windows it could work). Some of the Mingle properties will also be under $100 at times. I've seen Butterfly go under that point as well. I've gotten the Regal iClub in Wan Chai for around $100 off of Hotwire.

I actually tend to look around at that price point in Hong Kong fairly often... I've stayed in places there where I can stand in the room and touch both walls. And it cost under $100 a night to do so.

I am a fan of a place called the Evergreen Hotel near Jordan. It is on the Kowloon side, just off Nathan Road. Not fancy, but in a good location and close to the A21 airport bus stop. I find prices of hotels to vary wildly depending on what is happening in the city, but the Evergreen is typically below USD100. Not a fancy place, but definitely two steps above anything you would find in Chungking or Mirador.

I stuck a random December weeknight into Trivago - Dec 13th - Ibis North Point 48, HIEX Mong Kok 72. Both via Expedia, so probably advance purchase rates. Ibis Central is just 76 booked direct, which is probably spot on US$100...

Thanks for reminding me about Ibis at North Point. I actually stayed there in 2011. Do you know how often Accor have sale on their hotels? I will need to check my email for an invoice, but my memory is telling me that I paid about US$50/night with the Accors sale at that time.

Thanks for the suggestion. How often does Holiday Inn Express have rooms for sale? Any discount codes available on FT?

You just missed one. But I suspect even the ordinary prices will be OK on Ibis North Point. I'd look at Butterfly and Dorsett properties as well.

I'd even be willing to do Hotwire/Priceline for the right price (and have in the past) if it puts you somewhere like Central, Wan Chai, Mongkok or TST where pretty much everywhere is fairly close to the MTR (and you can use betterbidding.com or biddingfortravel.com to "guess" your hotel). It's the ones where you're out in Tsing Yi or Sha Tin you have to look out for...

Just be aware IBIS North Point has a massive construction going on across the street. They won't be selling "harbourview rooms" for much longer (if they even still do)

Both mid-late December and subway station will kill your budget quickly.

Less than $100 is always available. The matter is how far you are willing to sacrifice.
