Many obest family hotels in Hong Kong lists you’ll read miss a critical detail about room occupancy that families must understand before making reservations. Most Hong Kong hotel policies permit a maximum of three people in a hotel room, regardless of age, with a few exceptions mentioned below.

I’m a travel advisor and hotel expert who lived in a Hong Kong hotel. A big part of my job is to help families find kid-friendly places to stay in this fantastic city and to secure them additional perks where I can.

In this post, I have identified where families of four or more can reserve connecting rooms or family suites. I’ve also highlighted several accommodations with fun children’s amenities that you may not have considered and provided general room selection tips.

These kid friendly hotels are in various price ranges and locations, including near the airport and Hong Kong Disneyland. And, despite recent challenges, Hong Kong is an excellent family vacation destination that I highly recommend everyone experience at least once.

What to Know Before Booking Hong Kong Family Hotels

Making reservations at family friendly hotels in Hong Kong isn’t as easy as some other parts of the world due to their strict occupancy rules. I can help you navigate around them without breaking the law or jeopardizing safety. Before we get into that, though, let’s actually talk about what you need to know about hotel occupancy rules in HK.

Navigating Occupancy Rules

When you make reservations for family-friendly Hong Kong hotels, you must read the room occupancy requirements carefully.

The usual maximum of three people to a room rule often means that even families of four, who are used to staying in one room, usually have to book two rooms or find a rare family quad room.

This requirement is not set by the hotels themselves but is rather due to local regulations and fire codes. Remember, Hong Kong is a densely populated city with thousands of high-rise buildings.

The staff-to-guest ratio in these hotels is typically higher than in most parts of the world, so I would advise not bending this rule.  Plus, cameras in public spaces may record who goes into your room.

If family rooms, suites, or guaranteed connecting rooms are what you need, my advice is to book them as soon as possible because they are in high demand. I can help you book family-friendly hotel rooms with the hotels where I have benefits.

But, the Room Has Enough Beds for Four People

Even if rooms have two double or two queen beds that can technically sleep four people, local regulations prohibit more than three people in a room. Even in some larger suites, the maximum is still three people. There are some exceptions to that I will outline below.

Hotels may make exceptions to the three-person occupancy rule when you are traveling with a baby. The best thing to do is to ask them directly. If you do receive an exception by phone or email, have them note it on your reservation. I get it in writing.

Families of three can easily stay in any of the hotels on this list in a room with a king bed and rollaway or in a two-bed room. You can put a rollaway bed in rooms with two twin beds, but usually not in rooms with two double beds or two queen beds.

Pay Attention to Age

At the majority of hotels worldwide, adult rates trigger at age 18 and older. However, at some of the hotels on this list, the “adult” age is quite lower, perhaps age 12 or 13, and we’ve noted where this may apply below.

This is important because older children will pay adult room rates and trigger occupancy limits.

General Tips for Where to Stay in Hong Kong with Children

When deciding on your Hong Kong family accommodation, note that if you’re near an MTR stop, the efficient and clean Hong Kong MTR (subway) can take you nearly anywhere.

The MTR provides easy access to things to do in Hong Kong with kids, including Ocean Park and Hong Kong Disneyland.

On the island, many travelers prefer to stay near the Central or Admiralty MTR (subway) stops. On the peninsula, it’s most convenient to stay near the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR stop as this area is also closest to the harbour and its attractions, including the Star Ferry.

A Note About Making Reservations and Amenities I Can Secure

I have access to value-added VIP amenities at most of the Hong Kong luxury hotels on this list that you do not have access to on your own.

These may include room upgrades, complimentary breakfast for two, spa credits, airport transfers, and other value-added amenities. I have personally been booking my own travel through these VIP programs for years. I’ve indicated which hotels this applies to throughout this list.

If you are not booking a luxury hotel that has agent-exclusive VIP programs or you do not need connecting rooms (which are best booked through an agent or the hotel directly), Agoda is usually by far the best place to find hotel deals in Asia.

Luxury Hotels

Hong Kong luxury hotels are some of the best in the world. The level of service is unparalleled. These hotels all have a maximum occupancy of three people, in most cases, in rooms and suites. They can usually guarantee connecting rooms.

1. Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong (Top Pick)

Location: Central
MTR: Central

My daughter swims in the outdoor pool at Four Seasons Hong Kong, the best family hotel in Hong Kong.

I had the pleasure of living in Four Seasons Place, the serviced apartments adjacent to Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, for four years.

Even if I hadn’t spent so much time in the hotel, it would still be my top pick for families in Hong Kong for many reasons that I outline in my VERY detailed Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong review.

The bottom line is that they have the best outdoor swimming pool in Hong Kong, kids are given little amenities here and there, the food is excellent (they’ll customize dishes to a child’s liking), and most rooms have spectacular harbour views.

The Four Seasons hotel is adjacent to the IFC shopping mall, where you can buy nearly anything you forgot to pack, from baby food to shoes. The hotel pays attention to who is in residence, so I always know we’re in good hands. It’s simply the best.

Family rooms: Families of four to six can book connecting rooms in the same view category (a king and a two double bed room connect in the Peak-View, Harbour-View, or Premier Harbour-View). The Four Seasons hotel does not charge for children 18 and younger who stay in their parents’ or guardians’ rooms, space permitting. Sometimes, if the kids are young and the hotel is running at low occupancy, we can get permission to have families of four in a two double bed room (sometimes being the key qualifier).

Or, the hotel can connect a suite to a room for even more space. If availability permits, I can have these connecting rooms guaranteed for you.

Good to Know: The Four Seasons hotel has an airport meet-and-greet service as well as a free shuttle service to the Airport Express station in the IFC mall on a first-come, first-served basis. It’s also easy to walk to the Airport Express through the IFC mall if you don’t have a ton of luggage. The guest relations and concierge teams are excellent.

VIP Amenities: You will want to contact me if you’re interested in this hotel as I belong to a Four Seasons Preferred Partner agency (this is how I personally book the hotel).

2. Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

Location: Central
MTR: Central Station

We also regularly stay at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong (the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group flagship property). My daughter is a huge fan of the buffet breakfast in the Clipper Lounge and the high-tech, comfortable rooms.

There is usually a nice amenity waiting on the bed (which in the past has been a stuffed animal or a craft kit that she loves). Kids menus are in most dining outlets, and the cake shop is dreamy for sweets and to-go pastries. This hotel is a local icon, and they seem to do everything well.

Family rooms: Rooms of the same view category can connect by request, but the hotel works hard to make it happen (I can make it happen when booking if they have an available set). Families looking for even more space can book a Harbour View Suite and a Statue Square View room, which are enclosed by an outside connecting door.

Families of four with very young kids may be able to stay in one of their suites. Contact me, and I’ll check what this availability looks like.

Good to Know: The airport meet-and-greet service includes airport transfer in the hotel’s Tesla and a ride from the gate to customs in a cart (helpful for jet-lagged kids). The hotel also has a small indoor pool. Kids age 6 and above are welcome at Mandarin Grill and Man Wah restaurants (all ages are okay at Man Wah during lunch on weekends and public holidays). Kids 12 and older pay the adult room price.

VIP Amenities: Mandarin Oriental FAN Club and Virtuoso

3. The Landmark, Mandarin Oriental

Location: Central
MTR: Central

The L600 room at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong.

This low-rise luxury hotel on Queens Road in the heart of Central is an urban dweller’s dream. The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is a stone’s throw from high-end boutiques, Harvey Nichols, the city’s best shopping, and Lang Kwai Fong’s nightlife.

It’s also a family-friendly spot because so many dining options are within walking distance and because, well, it’s a Mandarin Oriental.

Family rooms: The L600 Deluxe Double room sleeps families of four between two double beds (note that the beds are side-by-side very closely in the bedroom) and a sofa bed or rollaway bed.

Good to know: This hotel does not have harbour views or connecting rooms. However, it’s in a great location for shopping as it’s adjacent to The Landmark mall which is full of designer shops and food outlets. Kids 13 and older pay the adult price.

VIP Amenities: Mandarin Oriental FAN Club and Virtuoso

  • Upgrade at the time of booking, subject to availability (Upgrade not applicable for L600 Executive Room & suites categories)

4. The Peninsula Hong Kong

Location: Kowloon
MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui

The Peninsula, Hong Kong is called the “Grand Dame of the Far East” for a reason. Built in 1920, it’s another iconic property with a wide range of unique guest experiences to choose from via the Peninsula Academy.

This is easily one of the best places to stay in Hong Kong with a family because all ages are well cared for. The kids’ programming is excellent as it ranges from pastry classes to picnics in green spaces (yes, Hong Kong does have them).

They also have an indoor swimming pool and guest rooms with harbour views that were recently refreshed. It’s a stunning hotel and a top choice for those who prefer the Kowloon/TST area.

Family rooms: The Peninsula has a Deluxe Harbour View two-bedroom suite. Rooms in each view category have connecting options by request, but they are not guaranteed to connect under nearly any circumstances.

Good to Know: There is nothing posher than an airport transfer in one of the hotel’s Rolls-Royce Phantoms. Afternoon tea here is also a must-do. Kids 12 and older pay the adult room price.

VIP Amenities: Virtuoso and PEN Club

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability (applicable from Deluxe room to Deluxe Courtyard room; from Deluxe Courtyard room to Grand Deluxe room; from Superior Suite to Deluxe Suite; from Deluxe Suite to Superior Harbour View Suite; and from Superior Harbour View Suite to Deluxe Harbour View Suite)

5. The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong

Location: Kowloon
MTR: Kowloon Station

One of the world’s tallest hotels is The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, located on floors 102-113 of the ICC Building. Needless to say, the views are spectacular.

OZONE (adults only) is also the highest bar in the world, situated 1608 ft above ground with unbelievable views. The hotel’s indoor swimming pool boasts sweeping island scenery, making your experience even more luxurious. The rooms all feature a modern East-meets-West design that effortlessly blends traditional Asian elements with more contemporary decor.

This family-friendly luxury hotel offers a Ritz Kids program that includes in-room tents and other fun amenities to top it off. You can read more in our The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong review.

Family Rooms: Room occupancy is three people per room, but rooms of the same category can connect. Or you may connect a Deluxe Victoria Harbour Suite to a Deluxe Victoria Harbour Room for more space. Children 12 and above are charged as adults. 

Good to Know: This is definitely not a hotel for people with vertigo or anyone afraid of heights. Also, the harbour views can be blocked by cloud cover when it’s foggy in HK. This is rare, though, so you shouldn’t worry about being able to admire the landscape.

Always book a Club Level room at a Ritz-Carlton property in Asia to enjoy the glorious five food presentations per day and evening-hosted cocktails. This is such an added convenience, especially when traveling with kids, because you never know when they’ll get hungry!

VIP Amenities: Virtuoso and Ritz-Carton STARS.

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Complimentary buffet breakfast daily for up to two in-room guests
  • $100 USD equivalent Hotel credit to be utilized during stay (not combinable, not valid on any form of room rates, no cash value if not redeemed full, not valid on any 3rd party payment, not valid on outside contractor service and not valid on any retail items)
  • Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

How to Secure the Amenities: Please use the form below as online booking through Virtuoso is not available for this hotel.


The hotels located in the Admiralty district on Hong Kong Island that I mention below are Upper House, Island Shangri-La, and JW Marriott Hong Kong. They are located next to each other in Pacific Place, a large and convenient complex of offices, the Admiralty MTR station, and a shopping mall. This is either one MTR stop or about a 10-minute walk from adjacent Central. It is also adjacent to Hong Kong Park, with turtles, ducks, a playground, and more.

6. The Upper House

Location: Admiralty
MTR: Admiralty

Room interior of Studio 70 or 80 room with harbour view at The Upper House.

The Upper House Hong Kong is a popular Hong Kong luxury hotel known for its elegant residential calm, which was the intent of architect Andre Fu’s design.

They have some of the largest rooms in Hong Kong; a fleet of house cars (rare in Hong Kong); complimentary in-room Maxi Bars with soft drinks, tea, coffee, and snacks; a contemporary Asian art collection; loaner bikes; and attentive service.

The 117 guest rooms boast peak, harbour, and island views that are accentuated by corner windows. This is for families who prefer intimate, sleek, luxury boutique hotels.

Family Rooms: This property does not have connecting rooms. Families of four traveling with a baby can stay in Studio 80 (850 square feet). This room has a sofa bed, and they can also put in a crib.

Families of five can stay in the Upper Suite (1230 square feet) or two-bedroom Penthouse Suites (1960 square feet).

Good to Know: Room layouts are on the website, but vary slightly from room to room in real life. We lived in this building for about a year (before it was The Upper House), so I know a lot about this area. The bathrooms are enormous. Kids 12 and older are considered adults in the room.

VIP Amenities: Virtuoso

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Continental Breakfast for up to two in-room guests, in restaurant
  • $100 USD Equivalent Resort/Hotel credit, to be utilized during stay (not combinable, not valid on room rate, no cash value if not redeemed in full)
  • Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

How to Secure the Amenities: If you are a family of three in need of one room, it’s easiest to book directly through Virtuoso.com to secure these value-added amenities. I’ll be notified and will help coordinate your stay.

I’m notified when you book and will add them when I contact you about your reservation.


7. JW Marriott Hong Kong

Location: Admiralty
MTR: Admiralty

The outdoor pool at JW Marriott Hong Kong is among the best in the citiy.

The JW Marriott Hong Kong is also located in the Pacific Place complex. They have a very nice outdoor pool area with an adjacent, casual fish restaurant that we really like as one of the several dining options.

The MTR station is basically right below the hotel, and Hong Kong Park is a few minutes walk away, where kids can enjoy the turtles and play a little.

This is one of the best hotels in Hong Kong for families as it has seasonal activities for kids, such as cookie decorating, kids yoga, and more. It’s a good option for Marriott Bonvoy members and those who are comfortable with the JW Marriott brand.

Family rooms: JW Marriott Hong Kong allows families of four to stay in two double bed rooms and some king suites. They also offer a variety of connecting rooms, some with harbour views. They do not guarantee location or connecting rooms as both at by request. Children 12 and older are considered adults.

Good to Know: When the hankering strikes for a good salad bar (not common in Hong Kong), the weekday lunch buffet here is excellent. I lived in the apartments (now The Upper House Hotel) that are adjacent to this hotel, so I had full access to its facilities — I know them well. Rooms have recently been renovated, and it prices well.

I can book you in as a VIP Marriott Luminous guest at no extra cost to you, which would add amenities such as complimentary breakfast for two, complimentary room upgrade (subject to availability), and more. Or you can book on Marriott.com.


8. Island Shangri-La

Location: Admiralty
MTR: Admiralty

Island Shangri-la Hong Kong hotel Horizon Club Harbour View King is popular with families of three or for connecting rooms.
A not-yet-renovated harbour view king

Island Shangri-La is a good choice for families who want to feel a sense of place on their Hong Kong vacation. It’s the Hong Kong family hotel that I book second most because of reasonable pricing, location, excellent service, and guaranteed connecting rooms.

Rooms are a nice blend of East and West with 24-hour butler service and amenities one might expect at a luxury hotel. Newly-renovated Horizon Club guest rooms provide access to the Horizon Club lounge with complimentary meal and drink services throughout the day and a few other amenities that can be worthwhile for families.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts is one of our go-to hotel groups when traveling in Asia because the service and amenities are excellent. They also have a nice outdoor pool and multiple dining outlets. I have booked a lot of families into this hotel who have enjoyed their stays.

Family rooms: Families of four to six can fit into connecting rooms (guaranteed) or a room connecting to a suite.

In certain circumstances, as noted on their website, if a family of four is traveling and two of the children are young, they will do their best to fit the family into one room. You must contact them for availability before booking (I will do this on your behalf). This most commonly happens in one of their suites in existing bedding (four people between a king bed and one rollaway — so a tight fit).

Good to Know: Room upgrades for Luxury Circle guests (Shangri-La’s VIP program) and Virtuoso guests are processed at the time of booking. I love this.

They also have an outdoor pool with a lounge. Harbour views can be seen on a side-angle, meaning they are viewable if looking left or right when standing at the room’s window.

VIP Amenities: Shangri-La Luxury Circle or Virtuoso (pick one). Basically, if you would like one-way airport transportation, choose Virtuoso. If you’d like in-room dining as an additional breakfast option, choose Luxury Circle.

Virtuoso amenities:

  • Upgrade from Peak View Room to Harbour View Room of the same category at time of booking (excluding Suites and subject to availability)
  • Daily breakfast for two guests per bedroom at Restaurant Petrus, cafe TOO
  • Complimentary one-way private airport transfer to/from Hong Kong International Airport or Kai Tak Cruise Terminal OR $100 Food & Beverage credit to be utilized during stay ( no cash value if not redeemed in full)
  • Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • For Suite Bookings: Complimentary round trip private transport for Hong Kong International Airport or Kai Tak Cruise Terminal OR $200 Food & Beverage credit to be utilized during stay and a Chinese silk scarf (no cash value if not redeemed in full)

Luxury Circle amenities:

  • Inclusive of daily breakfast for two at cafe TOO or Private Dining
  • Room upgrade on selected room categories at the time of booking subject to availability (Peak View to Harbour View)
  • Early check-in or late check-out subject to availability
  • Hotel Credit per stay at USD100 or equivalent to 10% of average daily room rate whichever is higher applies to incidental spend but not room or applicable to banquet charges or outlets by the concessionaire
  • VIP welcome amenities
  • Dedicated concierge to handle requests
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

How to Secure the Amenities: In this case, you’ll need to pick which amenities you prefer. You can book Virtuoso online. Or, you can request a Luxury Circle Rate through my form, which you should use if you need connecting rooms.

*You may need to be on the desktop version of Virtuoso.com to search rates and book online. To enable the desktop version of a hotel page from a mobile device, scroll down to the navy blue section at the bottom of the web page and click “Full Site.” When searching rates, do not input children ages 17 and under as they will be priced as adults. I’m notified when you book and will add them when I contact you about your reservation.


9. The St. Regis Hong Kong

Location: Wan Chai
MRT: Wan Chai

St. Regis Hong Kong is a newer luxury hotel in Wan Chai on the island, a neighborhood between Admiralty and Causeway Bay.

It’s a good location for those attending events at the Convention Centre or racecourse. The neighborhood is gentrifying and busy (there can be traffic), but you can find some famous places to eat nearby, like Kam’s Roast Goose and Under Bridge Spicy Crab, and walk to the shops at Causeway Bay.

Interiors are by the prestigious designer Andre Fu, so rest assured it’s a gorgeous five-star property.

Family rooms: Deluxe and Grand Deluxe Rooms have two queen beds in them that the hotel will allow families of four to book in addition to some one-bedroom suites. Children 13 and older are charged as adults. 

Good to know: Plan on using the MTR quite a bit. Getting to Wan Chai by taxi during rush hour is difficult. The Ding Ding trolley runs between Kennedy Town and (with stops at Causeway Bay, Central, and many other places in between) Shau Kei Wan.

VIP Amenities: Marriott Luminous or Virtuoso

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Buffet Breakfast for two guests per bedroom
  • $100 USD equivalent Resort/Hotel credit to be utilized during stay (not combinable, not valid on room rate, no cash value if not redeemed in full)
  • Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

How to Secure the Amenities: Please use my Hong Kong family hotels form and I’ll provide you with the best rates for your dates.


10. Kowloon Shangri-La

Location: Kowloon
MTR: East Tsim Sha Tsui

Kowloon Shangri-la is a great value for a family friendly luxury hotel in Hong Kong.
Photo courtesy of Kowloon Shangri-La

I find that Kowloon Shangri-La is a very popular option for families who are used to five-star luxury but don’t quite have the budget for connecting rooms or suites at the other luxury hotels on this list. This hotel is also on my list of moderately-priced luxury hotels in Hong Kong.

Shangri-La hotels can be flexible when it comes to families of four in the same room when they have availability to do so. The other reason is that this family hotel prices very well for a good location near the harbour and an MTR station.

Family rooms: A king room and two twin bed room of the same category can connect. Families of four with two adults and two young children may be able to fit into an Executive Suite or other accommodations in existing bedding (in other words, three people in the king bed and one on a rollaway).

Good to Know: Room upgrades for Luxury Circle guests (Shangri-La’s VIP program, that I can book guests in with) are processed at the time of booking. They also have a Horizon Club level. Some guests report the decor being a bit tired but feel the hotel is good value for what you receive. Kids 12 and older are considered adults in the room.

VIP Amenities: Shangri-La Luxury Circle

  • Inclusive of daily breakfast for two at Cafe Kool or Private Dining
  • Room upgrade to the next room type within the same category at time of booking subject to availability excluding suites. (Rooms on regular floor cannot be upgraded to Horizon)
  • Early check-in or Late check-out subject to availability
  • Hotel Credit per stay at USD100 or equivalent to 10% of average daily room rate whichever is higher applies to incidental spend but not room or applicable to banquet charges or outlets by concessionaire
  • VIP welcome amenities
  • Dedicated concierge to handle requests
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi access

11. Cordis Hong Kong

Location: Mongkok
MTR: Mongkok

Located in a commercial skyscraper and shopping center called Langham Place, Cordis Hong Kong (a Langham Hotel) is the only five-star hotel in Mongkok.

It’s home to more than 1,500 pieces of contemporary Chinese art, four restaurants, including two with Michelin stars, a club level lounge, and an award-winning Chuan Spa.

Its 665 rooms, some with spectacular views, are spread out over 42 floors. The hotel has a mascot, Cody the red panda, and a kids VIP program where they receive a personalized backpack consisting of different Cody themed goodies, including a luggage tag, activity book, postcards, and many more interesting and educational activities. The hotel offers free meals for kids 3 and younger, and kids 12 and under receive free breakfast with a paying adult.

Family rooms: There are three types of family rooms at Cordis Hong Kong.

  • Family trio: Three twin (single) beds or one king bed and one twin bed
  • Family quad: Two king beds or a king bed and two twin beds
  • Family two-bedroom (pictured above): Two spacious rooms connecting to each other with either four twin beds or a king bed and two twin beds.

Good to Know: While Mongkok might seem further away from tourist activities, many of Hong Kong’s famous markets are here (Jade Market, Ladies Market) in addition to other good shopping. While it is a 42-story building, you will not see the harbour due the inland location, but the rooms will have city views. Kids ages 13 and older pay the adult room rate.

VIP Amenities: COUTURE by Langham

  • HKD150/night (up to HKD450/stay) hotel credit applicable to food and beverage.
  • Daily breakfast for two
  • Complimentary in-room Wi-Fi
  • Next tier room upgrade upon arrival subject to availability
  • Early check-in and late check-out subject to availability
  • Welcome note from the hotel
  • VIP welcome amenity

12. Hotel Icon Hong Kong

Location: Kowloon
MTR: Hung Hom/Tsim Sha Tsui

Hotel Icon is one of Hong Kong's best family hotels in Kowloon.
Photo courtesy of Hotel Icon Hong Kong

Hotel Icon Hong Kong is a boutique property, a teaching and research hotel built for the School of Hotel and Tourism Management by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The university owns it, but it is incredibly highly praised for customer service. It’s a gorgeous, eco-friendly hotel with living green walls and even a suite designed by Vivienne Tam that I have stayed in (loved it). Rooms have amenities such as a complimentary (and replenished) mini bar, complimentary smartphone, and Nespresso machines.

Family rooms: Families of four to six can stay in connecting Icon 36 City rooms or connecting Icon 36 Harbour rooms. Connecting rooms are by request only and are not guaranteed.

Good to Know: Because it is a design-conscious hotel, it’s popular with Instagrammers. The hotel is about an 8-minute walk to the Hung Hom MTR station, but they run a complimentary electric shuttle to the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station (which would otherwise be about a 20-minute walk) and The Sun Arcade.

While it is a little “off to the side” in the TST area, it is just a few minutes’ walk from the Hong Kong Science Museum and the Hong Kong History Museum. The upshot is that this hotel can be a more wallet-friendly way to have a harbour view.

Booking Instructions: Hotel Icon’s website typically has the best promotions because they also have a loyalty program that is free to join.


13. Rosewood Hong Kong

Location: Kowloon 
MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui 

The ultra-luxurious and award-winning Rosewood Hong Kong soars above Victoria Harbor while offering meticulous service as one of the best family-friendly hotels Hong Kong has. With eight restaurants and bars, an infinity pool that stretches towards the harbor, and curated tours and experiences, this Hong Kong hotel is hard to beat.

The Explorers’ kids club at the Rosewood Hong Kong Hotel has a playroom with five separate themed spaces to play in: Play Lab, Curious Jungle, Mad Space, Big Sky, and Deep Blue. If that’s not enough to help little tykes blow off steam, there are also Zumba classes, cooking workshops, and art lessons—all of these kid activities make Rosewood Hong Kong one of the best hotels to consider for your family vacation. 

Family rooms: Families of up to three can stay in any standard hotel room with configurations of one king bed and up to two single beds. Some of the rooms are adjoining, but make sure to state this when booking your family accommodation. The two- and three-bedroom suites can accommodate five and seven, respectively. Kids 12 and over are considered adults.

Good to Know: The kids’ activities and Explorer Kids Club require advanced reservations, so make sure to book those early. With impeccable service, top-notch restaurants, and an opulent spa, this hotel offers the ultimate luxury for families. There is a direct link to the MTR, but you just might not want to ever leave Rosewood Hong Kong.

Mid-Range Family Hotels in Hong Kong

You’ll find excellent family-friendly accommodations at these places in Kowloon or on Hong Kong Island.

14. The Fullerton Hong Kong

Location: Ocean Park
MTR: Ocean Park 

This waterfront resort perches high above the ocean, and its 425 rooms and suites boast panoramic ocean views. Many of the rooms are beautifully themed for kids, with Baby Shark, Mermaid Princess, Jurassic Park, and Panda Party as options. 

World-class theme park Ocean Park is a 2-minute walk via an escalator where kids and adults will find a thrilling combination of roller coasters and a marine mammal park focusing on education and conservation of ocean animals. Brand new Water World Ocean Park is a short one-minute walk from the hotel and is Asia’s first year-round, all-weather water park. With sweeping views and kid-friendly activities galore, it’s hard not to consider The Fullerton for your Hong Kong family accommodation!

Family rooms: Several of the rooms and suites interconnect with neighboring rooms, so make sure to request that upon booking. Select rooms like the Oceanfront, Deluxe Oceanfront, Grand Deluxe Oceanfront, and the Baby Shark room offer two queens, which can accommodate a family of four with kids under the age of 11. Kids 12 and older are considered adults. 

Good to Know: The hotel offers an indoor, sea-themed play zone and a kid only lagoon with a splash zone, slides, and an aqua tunnel. Check the hotel’s website for the latest on advanced reservations and time slots.

15. Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel

Location: Ocean Park
MTR: Ocean Park

The family pool at Marriott Ocean Park Hong Kong.

This Hong Kong family hotel is literally just a few steps from the entrance to Ocean Park Hong Kong and Water World Ocean Park, the a sea-themed amusement parks that we love.

This hotel has some neat animal-themed rooms named for some of the Ocean Park residents like Bao Bao the panda and Whisker’s the Ocean Park sea lion mascot. Here, families of four can stay in two double bed rooms and in some suites. Kids 12 and above are considered adults.

Good to Know: Other than Ocean Park, there isn’t much to do within walking distance. However, the South Island MTR station is also just a few steps away from the hotel so that you can reach Admiralty MTR station in one stop. Admiralty is the gateway to Hong Kong Park, The Peak Tram, and more dining, and there you can connect to the Tsuen Wan line to go to Kowloon.


16. Holiday Inn Golden Mile (Top Pick)

Location: Kowloon
MTR: Tsim Tsa Tsui

Holiday Inn Golden Mile is one of my favorite family friendly hotels as it is excellent value for money and very well located in the heart of Kowloon on Nathan Road.

It’s adjacent to the Tsim Tsa Tsui MTR station and about a 5-minute walk to the Star Ferry. Kids 12 and under per room eat for free. The club level rooms look to be the nicest. I am a fan of club level rooms when traveling in Asia with kids as you never know when they’ll get hungry or thirsty.

This is a VERY good option for families who would like to be in the heart of Kowloon’s attractions closer to the harbour. There’s also a rooftop pool and three full-service restaurants.

Family rooms: Families of four can stay in any double room. They also have larger double rooms that have a double bed and a king bed. Connecting rooms for larger families are also available. Kids ages 12 and under stay for free when sharing their parents’ room. 

Good to know: Holiday Inn is a member of InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG). It is often better to book this hotel through IHG directly as they give their IHG rewards members a slight discount off of the best available rate. It can price like a budget hotel, depending on the dates.


15. Park Hotel Hong Kong

Location: Kowloon
MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui

The Park Hotel Hong Kong has family rooms with fun bedding.

The Park Hotel Hong Kong is in a popular area and is a good choice for families that want large hotel amenities at a good value, but without a ton of frills. It has a concierge service and provides guests with baby items by request including bottle warmers, bed guards and baby bath tubs.

Family Rooms: Park Hotel Hong Kong offers connecting rooms and two different quad rooms:

  • The Deluxe Plus Family Room (pictured above) has two double beds with kid-friendly bedding and can sleep four.
  • The Premier Family Room also sleeps four, has two double Queens as well as more understated bedding.
  • The Deluxe Triple has a double bed and a twin bed a little off to the side in the same room.
  • The Premier Family Quintuple sleeps five with one king, one queen and one single bed.

Good to Know: They provide a shuttle to and from the Airport Express. There is no pool. This is a hotel for when you need a quad room with some kid-friendly amenities. Kids ages 12 and older pay the adult price.


18. Royal Plaza Hotel

Location: Mongkok
MTR: Mongkok East

The Royal Plaza Hotel is known for being a great four-star option (it is advertised in places as five-star but it is not) in Mongkok as it does have a wide range of amenities and comfortable rooms, including club level rooms. They have a pool deck with a sizable main pool and a kids’ pool.

Family Rooms: The good news is that families of four can stay in any of their double queen rooms, making booking in on a whim easy to do. They also offer over 100 adjoining rooms for larger families and a family room with a king bed and two twin beds.

Good to Know: This Hong Kong hotel offers shuttle service to the airport and within TST area. The hotel is located directly above the MTR station.


19. Dorsett WanChai

Location: Wan Chai
MTR: Causeway Bay

Dorsett Wanchai prides itself on being one of the best family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong. It’s newly-renovated and located in between Wan Chai and Causeway Bay, overlooking the racetrack. The hotel was formerly known as The Cosmopolitan Hong Kong.

Family rooms: Among its 454 rooms, Dorsett Wanchai offers several configurations including a Deluxe Family Quad Room (that sleeps up to five), a Deluxe Triple Room, an Ocean Suite, a Sony Suite, and connecting rooms. The Deluxe Family Quad Room features a free snack box and teddy bear with cute kid bath amenities, free premium WiFi, a 40” television, free use of the baby cot and child bed rails, and a fully stocked mini bar (additional charges apply).

The Ocean Suite is a kid’s dream (especially if you’re headed to Ocean Park), complete with adorable plush toys they can play with and a whimsical, colorful living space. There are even custom dolphin end tables in the bedroom, as well as nautical touches like seashell handles and bubble-print wallpaper. Guests 12 and under are considered children.

Good to Know: Kids and adults alike will love the Dorsett Candy bar with snacks for the kids and drinks for the adults and a Dorsett Wine Hour every Friday. The Causeway Bay MTR station is an 8-minute walk away though they offer a free shuttle bus network that takes you to 15 different must-see destinations in Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, Central, Admiralty, Quarry Bay and Tai Koo.

Take a good look at its location to see if it is right for you. Guests enjoy premium Wi-Fi up to 1000 mbps & 10 devices at a time.


20. Ovolo Southside

MTR: Wong Chuck Hang

The south side of Hong Kong Island is up-and-coming partially thanks to the newish South Island MTR line. Ovolo has multiple properties in Hong Kong but this one, likely due to its location near Ocean Park, has a family quad room.

It’s a member of Design Hotels, a Marriott brand, which means it’s a good choice for Marriott Bonvoy members. The trendy boutique hotel is near Ocean Park, and it features colorful yet laidback decor that’s stylish to adults and engaging for kids.

Family Rooms: Families of four can choose the family room with two queen beds. Larger families will need two rooms but the rates are such that this might just be doable. An extra fee for cribs and rollaway beds applies. Children 11 and above are considered adults at this property.

Good to Know: It’s a converted warehouse with super-chic design and great pricing.


Serviced Apartments

You can think of serviced apartments as alternatives to the traditional family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong. They typically offer larger living areas and full kitchens with the bonus of regular housekeeping, a concierge, and hotel-like services.

21. Shama

Location: All over Hong Kong

Many serviced apartments in Hong Kong require a month or longer of a stay. However, some are available for rent by the day or week, like Shama.

Shama has multiple properties across Hong Kong, but the Central, Tsim Tsa Tsui, and Fortress Hill properties have two-bedroom serviced apartments that sleep up to five people. (Most tourists tend to stay in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui.)

They’re owned by Onyx Hospitality so you can check rates and offers for the various Shama properties.


Hong Kong Disneyland Hotels

If you’re visiting Hong Kong with kids, I recommend making time for a visit to Hong Kong Disneyland. Located in Penny’s Bay on Lantau Island, it’s the largest theme park in Hong Kong and it offers all kinds of magical experiences, from character meet and greets to live performances.

For easy access to all the rides and attractions, I suggest staying in one of the conveniently located Hong Kong Disneyland hotels. 

These are some of the best family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong. All can sleep four in a two bed room and there are also connecting room choices available.

A shuttle runs between the hotels, the park, and its MTR station. What’s more, the park is roughly 10 miles away from the airport, so these hotels are in a convenient location when it comes to flying in and out. 

One of the major benefits of staying at one of these hotels is that they provide a separate park entrance (at the main park entrance), complimentary resort shuttle between the three hotels and the resort, a shopping delivery service where all your purchases at the theme park are delivered directly to the hotel, and in-hotel character experiences.

22. Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is of course one of Hong Kong's best family hotels.

This is the luxury hotel option and modeled after the Grand Floridian in Florida. Inside the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is where character dining, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Disney Dim Sum and other fun activities happen. It can price as high as superior luxury hotels in Central or TST, though so it’s not always a budget-friendly option.

23. Disney Explorers Lodge

Disney Explorers Lodge is the newest Hong Kong Disneyland hotel with rooms for larger families.

Disney Explorers Lodge is the newest, mid-priced hotel that has an explorer theme. Rooms are furnished according to the four unique tropical climates of Asia, Oceania, South America and Africa. We really enjoyed our recent stay and I like it best of all three Hong Kong Disneyland hotels.

The lodge features over 700 species of plants across the grounds, and there are thousands of pieces of artwork to discover. You can enjoy international dining from a global-inspired menu, take a dip in the massive pool, and even book the exclusive Adventurers suite.  This suite is fashioned after Minnie and Mickey’s camping “base” complete with decorations, snacks, and welcome kit all ready to invigorate little explorers and make your child’s vacation even more magical.

24. Disney’s Hollywood Hotel

Exterior view of Disney's Hollywood Hotel, a Hong Kong family hotel near Disneyland.

Disney’s Hollywood Hotel has an Art Deco theme, and while it’s the lowest-priced of the three, we enjoyed our recent stay. You can read my Disney’s Hollywood Hotel review. It has a piano-shaped pool, plenty of grassy space to run around, character dining, an onsite Disney store, and more. The food is pretty good, too, and we definitely recommend staying at this Hong Kong Disneyland hotel.


Hotels Near Hong Kong Airport

Location: Lantau Island
MTR: Tung Chung (you will need to take a shuttle to the MTR station)

Some families prefer to stay close to the airport, especially if they’re on a layover. The Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott is a convenient option, as it’s less than a mile away from the Hong Kong International Airport. The Marriott is a large hotel at 658 newly-renovated rooms, some which have sea views. It also has a spa and heated indoor swimming pool.

Marriott has a good reputation for providing its guests with easy bookings and comfortable lodgings, and I’ve always found my experience to match that.

Family Rooms: It’s one of the few hotels that will allow two adults and two children to stay in a double room.

Good to Know: The hotel has a complimentary shuttle between the airport, Tung Chung MTR station, and Hong Kong Disneyland. Tung Chung station is also where you could catch the Ngong Ping cable car to the Big Buddha.

  1. This post is very helpful – thanks! Going to the Island Shangri-la next week and their occupancy rules officially allow for 2 adults and 2 children under 12 in the same room, for all rooms. It’s not advertised on their website or third-party booking services, but the hotel happily confirmed by phone. (Apparently an extra bed is even complimentary.) The Island Shangri-la appears to be the only 5-star hotel in Hong Kong with this setup.
