If shopping is a religion in Hong Kong, then Causeway Bay is the temple where true believers come to worship. This neon-lit corner of Hong Kong Island overflows with shopping options, from fashion-focused malls like Hysan Place and Times Square to the bustling stalls of Jardine’s Crescent street market. These nine hotels provide a great springboard for diving into the Causeway Bay shopping scene.
Welcome to the most luxurious boutique hotel in Causeway Bay. Hidden on a quiet street close to Times Square and the Hysan shopping centre, Lanson Place contains 194 sophisticated rooms brimming with all the high-end facilities you’d expect from a member of the ‘Small Luxury Hotels of The World’ alliance, including park views and original artwork. The elegant property also features a gym, lounge, bar, library and regular live music.
After a long day of shopping at Times Square or betting at Happy Valley, Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay is the ideal retreat. The 263 guest rooms and executive suites all offer plush beds with sleep-aid aromatherapy kits, bathrooms with rainfall showerheads, and access to the gym and rooftop pool. This upscale hotel also has a restaurant, cocktail bar and club lounge.
This ultra-modern hotel is perhaps the coolest place to stay in Causeway Bay. Surrounded by Tin Hau’s hottest eateries, TUVE’s 66 rooms offer panoramic views of the city through their floor-to-ceiling windows. The industrial-chic aesthetic is super stylish – think polished concrete, copper features, tiny twinkling fairy lights – and so is the trendy in-house restaurant.
The Metropark Hotel’s 266 rooms are popular with both business and leisure travellers due to their deluxe facilities and their jaw-dropping views over Victoria Harbour. The 33-storey high rise boasts a scenic rooftop pool and hot tub with towering vistas over the city; plus, there’s an international kitchen and lively pub downstairs.
The Accor Group’s only luxury hotel in Hong Kong might be enormous, but that doesn’t stop each and every one of the 832 guest rooms from being artistically designed. On top of the plush furnishings and flashy rooms, the Park Lane Hong Kong offers a range of dining options – PLAYT dishes up cosmopolitan Asian fare, the Ebb & Flow lobby lounge pours great coffee and cocktails, and the SKYE rooftop restaurant produces fine French fare to match the world-class views.
Surrounded by the countless cafés, bars and restaurants on Electric Road, Tsing Fung Street and Tung Lo Wan Road, this boutique hotel apartment is the perfect base for exploring Hong Kong’s culinary delights. Perched high above Victoria Park, Twenty One Whitfield also features a rooftop terrace with sun lounges to take in the spectacular views of the Central skyline.
This sleek residence is made up of a variety of apartments, from affordable studios to more luxurious executive suites, all with access to a fully equipped gym, laundry and residents’ lounge. Somerset Victoria Park is situated in the gourmet-food district of Causeway Bay, and is just a stroll away from the historic Tin Hau Temple complex.
Sitting between the Tin Hau and Fortress Hill MTR stations in the heart of Causeway Bay, this well-positioned property is one of the most affordable boutique hotels in Hong Kong. Eco Tree Hotel was just renovated and unveiled in September 2018, so the facilities are state of the art.
Mini Hotel is another great-value budget option in Causeway Bay, only two-minutes’ walk from the Sogo department store as well as big-name brands like Hermès, Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton. The Pop Art reception area is the guests’ gateway to compact, cleverly designed capsule rooms, each with polished ensuite bathrooms.
