Best Family-Friendly Hotels in Hong Kong: Where to Stay with Kids

Hong Kong's family-friendly hotels are spread out around the city. The best come with a harbor view, or a pool, or both. Some hotels run specific programs for kids, keeping them entertained or organizing classes that are as fun as they are educational.  

Try the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong or the Cosmopolitan Hotel with its Family Quad rooms. As you drink in the skyline and the city's sights and sounds, let the whole family create and share the memories from your visit to Hong Kong. Family friendly hotels can help remove some of the stress of a group trip so you can focus on time with your loved ones. Some hotels will not charge for very young children, or will put an extra bed in your room for a small charge – both worth remembering if you're traveling on a budget.

Wherever you choose to stay, keep location in mind, to cut down on long journeys around the city, although Hong Kong's public transportation system is very easy to navigate. And don't forget to get out onto the streets and experience Hong Kong life in the raw – kids will love riding the trams, making their way through traditional markets, and experiencing the sights and sounds of the city.
