If you choose to stay at the InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong, you’ll be rewarded with stunning views over the city and a glamorous surrounding. After a long day, relax in your room with your pajamas on, a glass of chilled white wine in your hands – or whatever you prefer – and feel special while watching the sun set behind the skyscrapers.

W Hong Kong

Feel fancy at W Hong Kong and escape the ordinary. Each room has its own unique, luxurious touch and allows you to recover from a day out. Don’t close the curtains at night, otherwise you’ll miss the great view on the glowing skyline. If you can’t sleep and fancy another perspective, go up to the 73rd floor, where you’ll also find the gym, and take in the breathtaking view. It’s like no other.

You don’t have to break the bank to stay at The Salisbury, but you can indeed expect a lot from this four-star hotel, making your stay special. It’s the perfect hotel for a solo trip to Hong Kong, as it features single rooms. Wake up early and enjoy your morning coffee while the sun rises and tints the harbor in golden light. What better way to start your day?

Harbour Grand Kowloon

Large windows from the floor to the ceiling allow you the perfect view on Hong Kong. Whether you’re working your muscles at the gym, reenergize in your hotel room from a day in the city or dine in style at one of the restaurants, you’ll overlook Victoria Harbour at any time as the hotel is located on the waterfront. The elegant Harbour Grand Kowloon brings you a view like no other, while letting you indulge in budget-friendly luxury.

Marco Polo Hong Kong

You find the Marco Polo in the heart of Hong Kong. With buzzing life around, this hotel is the ideal accommodation for travelers fancying a quiet, comfortable place within the city to refuel.

It’s time to feel welcome in Kowloon.

Who doesn’t like a good hotel with a view? Being able to see the skyline from a room is always something special and makes you appreciate a trip even more. Should you ever make your way to this modern Chinese metropolis, grant yourself the right accommodation.
