22 Best Family Hotels in Hong Kong From Luxury to Budget

Connecting rooms, family rooms, and suites

This site generates income via clicks and purchases through links to carefully-curated travel brands.

Many of the best family hotels in Hong Kong lists you’ll read are missing a critical detail. Many Hong Kong hotel policies permit a maximum of three people in a hotel room, regardless of age, with a few exceptions mentioned on this list.

The room restrictions can sometimes cause issues, so I’ve offered tips for choosing rooms and reserving connecting rooms. I’ve also highlighted a few accommodations you may not have considered that have fun kids’ amenities. These hotels are in a variety of price ranges and locations, including near the airport and Hong Kong Disneyland.

Hong Kong is an excellent family vacation destination (yes, there are some challenges with traveling there at the moment but they will be overcome). You can also refer to my Hong Kong travel guide based on our experience from living there (it’s where my daughter was born) and frequent return visits.

Tips for Booking Hong Kong Family Hotels

Before you begin making reservations, keep in mind the policy I mentioned above. Because of this maximum three-people-to-a-room rule, oftentimes this means that families of four, who are used to staying in one room, usually have to book two rooms or find a rare family quad room. As the staff to guest ratio in these hotels is typically higher than in most parts of the world, I would advise not bending this rule.

Instead, book family rooms or guaranteed connecting rooms as soon as possible. These rooms, as you might imagine, are in high demand. I’m happy to help you find out which hotels on this list have connecting room availability during your stay.

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 double room. Even if rooms have two double or two queen beds that can technically sleep four, as mentioned earlier, local regulations prohibit more than three people to a room or even a suite, in most cases (exceptions are outlined below).

When deciding where to stay in Hong Kong with your family, keep in mind that the efficient and clean Hong Kong MTR (subway) makes it possible to stay almost anywhere in Hong Kong near an MTR stop. 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.

Ready to make your reservations? 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. This 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.

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 deals on hotels 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 but they can usually guarantee connecting rooms.

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 about 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 pool deck 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 hotel is adjacent to the IFC 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 connects in the Peak-View, Harbour-View or Premier Harbour-View). Or, the hotel can connect a suite to a room for even more space. If availability permits, I can have these connecting rooms guaranteed.

Good to Know: The hotel has an airport meet-and-greet service as well as complimentary van service to the Airport Express station in the IFC mall on a first come, first serve 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 book in personally).

Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

Location: Central
MTR: Central Station

We also stay at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong (the flagship property of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group) annually. 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 just seem to do everything well.

Family rooms: Rooms of the same category can connect by request but the hotel works hard to make it happen. 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, Pierre, and Man Wah restaurants (all ages are okay at Man Wah during lunch on weekends and public holidays).

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 to stay in Hong Kong with a family because all ages are well taken care of. 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 pool and 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 — they are not guaranteed to connect.

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.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong

The world’s highest hotel 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 and the indoor pool boasts vast island views. Rooms are decorated in an East-meets-West style. o top it off this family-friendly luxury hotel offers a Ritz Kids program that includes in-room tents and other fun amenities. 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.

Good to Know: Because the hotel is so high up, on rare occasions, if it’s foggy in Hong Kong your view of the harbour will be blocked by cloud cover (rare, but I always like to tell people this). This is definitely not a hotel for people with vertigo.

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)

(A note about the below Admiralty hotels: Upper House, Island Shangri-La and JW Marriott Hong Kong are located next to each other in Pacific Place. This is a large and convenient complex of offices, an MTR station and a shopping mall in Admiralty which is either one MTR stop or about a 10-minute walk from Central.)

The Upper House

Location: Admiralty
MTR: Admiralty

Room interior of Studio 70 or 80 room with harbour view at The Upper House.
Studio 70 harbour view room (Studio 80 distance between sofa and bed looks the same in photos)

The Upper House 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 (eco-friendly BMW X3s); complimentary in-room Maxi Bars with soft drinks, tea, coffee and snacks; a contemporary Asian art collection, loaner bikes; and attentive service. The 117 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: The Upper House does not have connecting rooms. Families of four traveling with a baby can stay in Studio 80 (850 square feet, rates start at HKD 6100/night). 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, rates start at HKD 18,000/night) or two-bedroom Penthouse Suites (1960 square feet, rates start at HKD 45,000/night).

Good to Know: Room layouts are on the website but vary a little bit 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..

VIP Amenities: Virtuoso

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability

  • $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)

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 deck 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.

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 had full access to its facilities. Rooms have recently been renovated and it prices well.

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

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.

Island Shangri-La is a good choice for families who would like to feel a sense of place on their Hong Kong vacation. Rooms are a nice blend of East and West with 24-hour butler service and amenities one might expect at a luxury hotel. Horizon Club 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 are 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 book 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 prior to 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).

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 which means that they are viewable if looking left or right when at the room’s window. They are also discreetly revitalizing rooms (this will not impact the guest experience as entire room floors below the renovations will close to minimize noise) between now and October 2020. cafe TOO restaurant will be closed between April and October 2020 for revitalization.

VIP Amenities: Shangri-La Luxury Circle and Virtuoso

  • Upgrade from Peak View Room to Harbour View Room of the same category at time of booking (excluding Suites and subject to availability)

The St. Regis Hong Kong

Location: Wan Chai
MRT: Wan Chai

St. Regis Hong Kong is a new luxury hotel in Wan Chai on the island, a neighborhood in 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 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.

Good to know: Plan on using the MTR as 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

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.

I’m finding 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.

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

Family rooms: A king room and twin 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.

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

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 items.

  • Family quad: Two king beds or a king bed and two twin beds
  • Family two-bedroom (pictured above): Two spacious rooms connecting two each other than can either be 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 in addition to other good shopping. While it is a 42-story building, you will not see the harbour due to distance, but the rooms will have city views.

Hotel Icon Hong Kong is a boutique property that is the teaching and research hotel built for the School of Hotel and Tourism Management by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. It is totally owned by the university 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. 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 do run a complimentary electric shuttle to the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station (which would otherwise be about a 20-minute walk) as well as 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 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.

A double room interior at Holiday Inn Golden Mile, a top pick for Hong Kong family hotel.

Holiday Inn Golden Mile is one of my favorite choices as it is excellent value for money and very well located in the heart of Kowloon. It’s adjacent to the Tsim Tsa Tsui MTR station and about a 5-minute walk to the Star Ferry. Kids 12 and under 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.

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.

Guests enjoy free use of a smart phone with unlimited 4G internet and IDD calls to 8 countries and premium Wi-Fi (up to 200 mbps & 6 devices at a time).

Ovolo Southside

MTR: Wong Chuck Hang

The southside of Hong Kong is up-and-coming partially thanks to the new 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.

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.

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

Serviced Apartments

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

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotels

If you’re visiting Hong Kong with your 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 double 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), at least one Priority Admission Ticket (the number depends on category of room booked. They work like Fast Passes in other Disney parks), and in-hotel character experiences.

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, however.

Disney’s Hollywood Hotel has an Art Deco theme and while it’s the lowest-priced of the three, we enjoyed our recent stay and 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 was pretty good, too.

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.

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.
