you shld book the tickets now. when come to mid nov, more expensive....
dino999

Depends on how old your kids. Are they below 12? What I would do is to book extra bed for the elder one if available. Didn't tell them about the one more kid. Stayed couple of times at Pruton Prudential before without any problems. In HK most hotels dont provide breakfast so no issue in that aspect.
Will be going to HK this coming mid Dec. Thanks jastan, s7460597 and many others for the advice given. I had brought the air ticket 3 months earlier and have save a total of $780 for 4 persons. Hooray!!~~~
