yes we were 6 but booked two connecting rooms.. if you're 5, masikip na siguro para sa inyo..

The room was 1400HKD for 3 pax.. with complimentary Disneyland tickets + breakfast buffet.. we paid 2800PHP per head.. Disneyland is around 2000 so parang 800 lang yung room namin per head.. good deal considering 5-star accommodation sya..

Sis, did you prebook it before you leave or right then and there in HK na? And was it for how many nights? And the Disney tickets is always part of their promo or nagkataon lang? Sorry daming questions. :) The first and last time i've been to HK was 2 years ago. And it was for an exam. So balak ko bumalik para mag-enjoy naman. :)

^Sis, I highly suggest na mag DIY na lang kayo sa HK. Mas mage-enjoy kayo and mas maraming mapupuntahan. City Econo Guesthouse is highly recommended. Clean, friendly pa si Jenny (the owner), pwede pagdating nyo na lang dun mag-pay via email lang ang reservation and best of all napakalapit nila sa Jordan MTR Station. It's just next door, literally! Malapit sila sa Night Market, restaurants etc. We've been to HK twice ni hubby at DIY lang kami. If you want I can email you our itinerary where to stay and how to get around HK. Very efficient ang public transport nila and as long as you have map you'll never get lost!  ;D

hi sis if you want to stay in a hotel, you can try hotel benito.. great location.. or dorsett seaview hotel and bridal tea house hotel in yau ma tei which is i think 2 mtr stations away from tsim sha tsui..

bridal tea house hotel is a 1 star hotel in yau ma tei.. we stayed there last january for our 5 days and 4 nights hongkong and macau trip.. we just walked-in and the rate is HKD2,600 for 4 nights but they will require a deposit of HKD500 to be returned on the date of check-out.. rooms are small but clean.. no free breakfast and internet though.. ;)

if you want to stay in a hostel, golden crown hostel is highly recommended by some.. just don't know the rates.. :)

We stayed in Acesite Hotel before. Nasa Mongkok siya, convenient super kasi 1 to 2 blocks lang siya from a subway station. Room's kinda small but clean. The hotel itself is quite narrow, tipong 2-3 rooms lang ata per floor. Budget na siya.  Overall, no complaints. Nakakatawa lang yung toilet niya kasi yellow yung tubig. ;D

I have stayed in Marco Polo HK, Metropark Hotel Causeway Bay and Langham Place in Mongkok.

If in Mongkok, Langham Place is the way to go talaga! Very convenient yung location -- it's attached to a mall and an MTR station. When you go out of the building, you're right smack in the middle of shops and restaurants. The rooms are very nice din, very clean. :) They have an iPod dock in the rooms that time, which was a nice surprise.  ;D
Be a responsible traveler! :)

I really enjoyed our stay at Cosmo Hotel.  Its in Wanchai but it has complimentary bus services to Time Square, Causeway Bay and Central station 

Last year naman, I wanted to try staying in TST.  But it there was a fair so we tried those guest houses in Mirador.  I found Hello Inn on Tripadvisor.  Super ok siya!  As in we didnt need to ride a cab all throughout our stay.  My friends stayed at Hotel Benito but it was tiny.

And even tinier was Hotel Bonaparte!  Az in super duper tiny! Az in you need to shower sideways.  Az in hindi puwedeng 2 people standing at the same time tiny!  Yuck talaga.   

Jay-Jay and Wifi Hotel are also ok.  Midpriced.  Pretty modern.

Anne Black has some rooms that has no bathrooms.

For cheap accommodations in HK, please check out my previous post:

Cheap accommodations in Hong Kong

On our first visit, we also stayed at Shamrock Hotel, very near Jordan MTR station. Free buffet breakfast pa. Kaya lang I want to stay nearer sa TST on my future visits.

Next visit to HK, puro DIY travel na lang and we only stayed sa guesthouse, Taisan guesthouse Burlington branch. The best ang location and clean naman yung loob ng mga rooms. Mabait pa yung caretaker, Ate Yolly, and gives us free rice for breakfast in the morning. Kaya ok ang guesthouse sa mga budget travellers. You can also use the kitchen for free to cook your meals.
