Hong Kong Hotels Top Picks With Kids

Where to Stay in Hong Kong when travelling with kids

Travelling with children? While all areas in the city are family-friendly, the challenge in Hong Kong is to find roomy accomodations.

In a city where land is at a premium, you can expect smaller room sizes all-around, single and twin rooms are common, but triple, quad, and family rooms somewhat scarce.

That said, here are a few choices that we have found quite good in the past when travelling with our kids.

We look for places that offer

  • Family rooms or simply a bit more space to accomodate 3 - 4 people
  • Kitchenettes or fridge and coffee/tea making facilities
  • Swimming pools which come in handy with weary kids after some sightseeing or shopping at the markets
  • "Walkable" areas with eateries, shopping, nearby


Not surprisingly, many of the properties offering spacious accomodations in central locations at more affordable prices are found in the Kowloon side. We also prefer this side as it feels more "pedestrian friendly" and not as "hilly" as the Hong Kong Island side with the many overpasses, which may be a bit more challenging if travelling with little ones in strollers.

And of course you have the ultimate stay for families with kids at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, which offers three very different options, the Victorian themed flagship Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, the more relaxed art deco Hollywood Hotel and the newest addition, the Disney Explorers Lodge.

For families, another great option is staying in an apartment or vacation rental. It involves a little more planning and research to find the right accomodation but it is well-worth the effort.
