Hotel stay in Mongkok area

Hi!

Do you have any hotels to recommend near Mongkok station (not the mk east station) ? Would prefer it to be less than 5 mins walking distance, budget will be around 100-150 sgd per night for two people

Didn't saw this thread and I created another one! Kindly advise the following..

Hi all, first time visiting HK for 5 nights.
Contemplating about the area to book the hotel.

Rough itinerary of the attractions to visit as follows:

1) Peak Tram
2) Wax Museum
3) Disneyland
4) Ocean Park
5) Ngong Ping Cable Car
6) Star Ferry + Avenue of Stars
7) Outlet shopping at Citygate and Prade at Ap Lau Chau.
8) SOHO + Lan Kwai Fong

At first, decided to book Eaton Hotel at Jordan area because it's nearby the popular Ladies Market and Temple Street night markets. After planning, seems like most of the areas I'm visiting are more or less in the vicinity of HK Island.

Am sure you experts have similar itineraries as they are pretty common areas. Care to advise me which area you guys stayed during your trip? Don't want to waste to much time travelling on the public transport

Cheers!

1,2,4 and 8 with ap lei chau are on hk island. Rest are in Kowloon and Lantau. It's matter if personal preference.
Personally I porefer Jordan as there's lots of shopping and reasonably priced food in the area.

In macau can use HK$??? And if they change back small change in Macau$?

And why u guys like going to hK cos when i ask my friend to go together they always complain very expensive buy thing and hotel, they prefer bangkok. So what is it that make you all like going HK?
i can use HK$ in macau's the venetian, but not sure about the small change as i gave exact.

yup the things are quite expensive, food wise, at least $5 per meal, one small bowl of wanton mee is about 40 plus HKD ($6 plus sing dollars). it's not those fancy restuarants, mind you. i think fast food like macdonalds are even cheaper..

shops like H&M etc have similar pricings as those in SG, maybe just a few dollars difference (plus/minus), so it doesnt make sense to buy in HK, then lug all the way back. but the sports stuff in argyle street are a lot cheaper than those in SG.

Food and weather. I usually make sure my HK trips are in their cooler periods (nov-apr) and it feels really nice to walk long distances without sweating like a pig. Hot dim sum to go or just a simple hot takeaway coffee feels nicer when you are out there in cool weather.

HK is definitely not a cheap destination. Hotels are expensive, food actually is pretty expensive too. But I just love their dimsum, roast meat, noodles, etc, that I don't mind paying a dollar or two (after conversion) more just to get my craving satisfied.

Bangkok IS a shopping and street food haven, which is another country which I've started to go on a regular basis. Hotel is cheap, street food is cheap and good, shopping is cheap too (but I'm not a shopping person). But you can't quite compare like that because the food both bangkok and HK offer are rather different. I think it all boils down to preference.

I prefer HK's weather, definitely. And I don't mean anything negative about Bangkok, but I do feel safer when walking around alone in HK, rather than in BKK...

Which part? Nathan road stretches from tst, Jordan, Ymt, Mongkok, prince Edward . What's your budget for the room?
Couple of months means December? Second half of December is super peak so airfare and hotel rates will be expensive.

Hkia is covered by airport express. If you're on tight budget take the city flyer bus hk$35 one way. Cheapest way.

Metro park not bad but nearer to Prince Ed station
HotelPrimer.com - Metro Park Hotel Mongkok

Mogkok Stn.. would be langham but not cheap

HotelPrimer.com - Langham Place Hong Kong

Cheap ones around Mongkok would be those 2 stars one... better dont stay at these...
