There are four major neighbourhoods where most hotels are located on Hong Kong island; First is Central, home to some of the most important financial institutions and many of the world's largest companies and international chain hotels. Second, is Wanchai, a very popular neighbourhood and business area. Due to the expensive real estate in neighbouring Central many companies have spilled over to Wanchai. The Hong Kong Convention Centre is located in Wanchai. A combination of steady clientele from nearby businesses and convention visitors has lead to Wanchai transforming into a lively neighbour of bars, restaurants after office hours. Some of Hong Kong's trendiest bars and restaurants here are packed out almost every night. Hotels in this area tend to smaller locally run hotels in the 3-4 star range - but don't let the ratings fool you, most hotels are very smart.
Third is Causeway Bay. Located on the waterfront ceveloped by way land reclamation to make more building space. The Cross Habour Tunnel, one of the largest underwater freeways in Asia, has led to the transformation of Causeway Bay into a bustling urban area with great shopping and dining making the area very crowded and almost unpassable on weekends!
Last is North Point, an up and coming commercial district. Whilst it is not that far away (just a further two stops on the MTR from Causeway Bay) many leisure visitors give the area a pass opting to be closer to the central downtown area. As such the hotels in this area offer very attractive rates for the budget conscious traveler. FYI, in order to remain objective, hotels are listed in alphabetical order. We don't favor any hotel for any reason.
