Dreading your compulsory quarantine? We hear ya. But don’t worry, we’ve scouted out the best quarantine hotels in Hong Kong that will make your experience much more bearable – or enjoyable, even!
Raise your hand if you haven’t been travelling simply because you were dreading the compulsory quarantine. Yep, that’d be us. But as the city finally reopens its borders (albeit gradually), and hotel quarantine times are greatly reduced to just three days, it’s prime time to quench our wanderlust! Plus, there’s a fairly comprehensive list of designated quarantine hotels in Hong Kong for you to choose from. Whether you’re travelling on a budget, or willing to splurge for a nice (long-ish) staycay while you’re at it, below are the top quarantine hotels in Hong Kong that’ll keep you sane and satisfied.
Note: This list has been updated according to the eighth cycle of designated quarantine hotels (valid until 31 October 2022). Also, the hotels on this list are ordered according to the lowest available price per person per night. Prices are in HKD.
Wait – we’ve got some tips for ya!
Before we dive into the list, here are a few tips for staying at quarantine hotels in Hong Kong. You’re welcome! 😉
- You can only open windows in certain rooms in certain hotels – check with the hotels beforehand if you prefer one or the other.
- Keep your room clean and smelling fresh by bringing a room diffuser, wet wipes, and even a handheld vacuum cleaner.
- Most hotels have connecting rooms, though they’re usually subject to availability. So, be sure to enquire with your hotel if you’re staying in a group.
- As most hotels use disposable cutlery for the sake of hygiene, feel free to bring your own reusable ones – the planet will thank you!
- If you can’t deal with food being lukewarm, bring your own mini microwave or hot plate to reheat your meals. Don’t worry, you can shop online and most likely get the goods delivered to your room, too, in case you need anything last minute. That said, do heed the hotel regulations regarding cooking in your room – we certainly don’t want to start any fires!
- Adaptors, HDMI cables, and extension cords will come in handy. Plan in advance!
- Check the Government’s website for official updates regarding inbound travel and designated quarantine hotels in Hong Kong; the booking status of each hotel is also available here.
- We know it’s difficult to book ahead due to unpredictable changes in flight schedules (ugh), but we’d still advise you to book ahead, because these hotels are popular! Just take note of your hotel’s policies regarding refunds and cancellations.
