From classic luxury to budget-friendly, Hong Kong is flush with hotels for all types of travelers. We recently scoured the destination and discovered some of the best accommodation options. Read on for five of our favorite Hong Kong hotels right now, all of which have just been added to Oyster.com.
While Hong Kong isn’t lacking luxury hotels, it doesn’t exactly have a wealth of urban resorts. That makes the Kerry Hotel a rare exception in this busy city. With interiors by Andre Fu (who also designed The Upper House), the hotel is equally relaxing and lively, with spaces that allow guests to have either or both in equal measure. That starts with outdoor lounge space and a pool that sits over Victoria Harbour, and ends with venues like the Dockyard and Red Sugar, where happy hours buzz with locals every night of the week. There’s also a full gym and a luxe spa on the property. Rooms are some of the biggest in the city, and the best have uninterrupted views across Victoria Harbour to Hong Kong Island.
The Putman provides an upscale, exclusive stay in one of Hong Kong’s trendiest neighborhoods. It also gives travelers a glimpse into living like a local — albeit one who can afford a massive apartment in a city where space comes at a premium. The suites here are some of the best values that you’ll find, and they span the entire width of the building, with separate dining, living, and sleeping areas, plus gorgeous bathrooms that include rainfall showers and soaking tubs. The wall of windows in each suite offers incredible city views, particularly from higher floors. Plus, each suite has its own private entrance directly from the elevator. It’s an exclusive spot, making rates often seem like a bargain.
Perched on a hill, The Upper House is one of the most well-known luxury hotels in Hong Kong. It’s easy to see why upon stepping inside, where stunning architecture complements a wide array luxury services and a beautiful contemporary art collection. The rooms are massive, and all have amazing city views. Make sure to look up, down, and all around as you make your way through the hotel, as nearly every corner is a set piece of stunning interior design. And when you’re ready to unwind, a cocktail at Cafe Gray Deluxe or an Art Basel event in The Library make a fine way to end the day. Want something more relaxing? Opt for a bath in the spa-inspired bathrooms in your room, complete with dizzying city views in Upper Suites.
With only 66 rooms, The Fleming is an intimate boutique hotel that goes big on style. Interiors blend vintage decor and contemporary design, all based on the Star Ferry ships of yore, which still ply Victoria Harbour today (albeit in more modern form). The attention to detail at this new Wan Chai property is epic, with brass sinks, apothecary-inspired bathrooms, goose-down comforters, leather blackout curtains, and a mix of hardwood details and sober hues that create sexy, intimate spaces. Italian fare at the on-site eatery, Osteria Marzia, also draws a lively mix of locals and travelers, adding to the Instagram-worthy atmosphere.
While you won’t find an endless list of features here, 99 Bonham is a great pick for independent travelers who want to base themselves in trendy Sheung Wan. It also has jaw-dropping city views, particularly from Deluxe Suites, which come with dual-aspect windows. Sipping a coffee from the Nespresso machines found in every room and posting up next to the floor-to-ceiling windows is a hard experience to top in this city of vertigo-inducing views. We also love the sleek and simple minimalist decor. Plus, just outside of the hotel’s front door is one of Hong Kong’s coolest neighborhoods, Sheung Wan, where trendy restaurants and cafes sit side-by-side with historic sites like Man Mo Temple and Antique Street.
