The last time I was in Hong Kong, I stayed in a hotel in the Kowloon area. Kowloon is a popular place for travelers who want to stay in Hong Kong but not on Hong Kong Island, where hotel rates tend to be higher. Kowloon has many beautiful world-class hotels, with room rates that, for Hong Kong, are still quite affordable. If you’re going to spend some time in Hong Kong, consider staying at one of these best Kowloon hotels. Centrally-located and with lovely accommodation and service, you won’t be disappointed.
Metropark Hotel Kowloon – The Metropark Hotel Kowloon is in an excellent location, close to major Kowloon shopping districts and with a free shuttle bus that will drop you at the nearby MTR station.
The hotel’s contemporary designed guest rooms feature free Wi-Fi internet with unlimited access, satellite TV, mini bar, coffee making facilities, hairdryer, and bath tub and shower. The rooms are quite large and beautifully decorated with views out over Kowloon. Higher level rooms also include use of the Metropark Club Lounge.
The hotel itself has a rooftop swimming pool and a fitness center, as well as several restaurants and cafes. The ‘House of Tang’ is wonderful for Chinese cuisine and, if you’re just looking for a place to have a relaxing drink or to entertain a client, ‘Sip Sip Bar’ is lovely.
The Metropark Hotel Kowloon is located at 75 Waterloo Road., Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Cosmo Kowloon Hotel – Another upscale yet still affordable Kowloon area hotel is the Cosmo Kowloon. It’s a brand new hotel that opened its doors only a few months ago, yet is already known as offering some of the most luxurious accommodation in Kowloon.
The Cosmo Kowloon Hotel is a boutique hotel located in the Tai Kok Tsui area of Kowloon. It’s within walking distance of two MTR train stations and next to several busy shopping areas.
The hotel has 285 rooms, all of which feature en suite bath, flatscreen TV with satellite, alarm clock, mini bar, coffee and tea making facilities, hairdryer, in-room safe and complimentary daily newspaper. The hotel is also Wi-Fi enabled.
For dining, don’t miss ‘Cellini’ and its superb Italian cuisine, perfect for a relaxing lunch or a business dinner with a client. Or, try out one of the many restaurants and cafes right outside the front door.
The Cosmo Kowloon Hotel is at 88 Tai Kok Tsui Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Langham Place – Langham Place is an absolutely gorgeous five-star hotel offering the most sumptuous hotel experience ever. With incredible views out over Hong Kong Harbour, Langham Place provides luxurious accommodation, superb service and high-tech facilities not found in many other Kowloon hotels.
At Langham Place, every room includes floor to ceiling windows, Wi-Fi internet, flatscreen TV, marble baths with rain shower, oversized bath tub, DVD and CD player, electronic safe, and most also come with MP3 player, and a mobile phone for use throughout the hotel.
The dining facilities are also incredible at Langham Place with world-class cuisine that’s difficult to beat. Eat at ‘The Place’ with its 23 foot ceiling, or ‘The Backyard’s’ al fresco terrace. Or, if you’re looking for a lovely place to entertain a client over cocktails, you can’t miss Portal’, with its live entertainment, seafood slab and business center.
Langham Place is at 555 Shanghai Street, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
