The Cheapest Quarantine Hotels in Hong Kong

The spectacular sprawl of Hong Kong by Florian Wehde.

Hotel quarantine in Hong Kong is currently 7, 14 or 21 days depending on whether or not you are a Hong Kong resident, where you have been located in the previous 21 days before travel and whether or not you are fully vaccinated.

In total, the fifth cycle hotels offer 10,000 rooms for quarantining guests. In this article, we will look at the cheapest quarantine hotels in Hong Kong for travellers on a budget!

15 Cheapest Quarantine Hotels in Hong Kong (5th Cycle List – 1st Sept – 30th Nov 2021)

The list has been ordered from cheapest to most expensive. In the list, we have shown the prices for the least expensive standard room, as well as the more expensive suite option. Other room types may be available. 

1. Bridal Tea House Hotel Hung Hom Gillies Avenue South

  • Full board price (standard room): $450 HKD.
  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: A very basic hotel located in Kowloon offering very cheap quarantine rooms that may suit the solo traveller. The rooms are very small (not suitable for two people) and a bit dark, some would say reminiscent of Hong Kong’s famous coffin homes. Stay here only if you’re on a super tight budget as there are better options for not much extra.
  • Top quarantine tip: This hotel does not allow children under 18 years of age, so if you are booking as a family, best book elsewhere.
  • Book on: Agoda | Booking.com

2. Grand City Hotel 

  • Full board price (standard room): $480 HKD (1 person). $580 HKD (2 people).
  • Full board price (suite): $600 HKD (1 person). $700 HKD (2 people).
  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: Located very close to Ying Pun MTR Station, this is one of the most affordable quarantine hotels in Hong Kong. It is clean with decent facilities, and the  staff are very friendly. If you’re on a budget, this is a great choice.
  • Top quarantine tip: Unfortunately, the WIFI is not reliable so it’s a good idea to buy a data SIM card before you check in and hotspot, especially if you need to work during your quarantine stay. 
  • Book on: Agoda | Booking.com

3. Best Western Hotel Causeway Bay

  • Full board price (standard room): $480 HKD (1 person). $580 HKD (2 people).
  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: Let’s be honest, this hotel gets terrible reviews with previous guests warning other travellers to avoid quarantining here. Why? The rooms are very small, there are reports of guests running out of water, complaints of meals served very late, bad smells in the room, terrible WIFI, rude staff members, one could go on and on… Maybe you should just read the reviews yourself!
  • Top quarantine tip: Don’t stay here.
  • Book on: Agoda | Booking.com

4. Ramada Hong Kong Harbour View 

  • Full board price (standard room): $480 HKD (1 person). $580 HKD (2 people).
  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: This cheap quarantine hotel in Hong Kong is a great choice for travellers wanting to save cash, but as with all of the cheap options, you will compromise on spaciousness and luxury. While the rooms and the bathroom are small, overall, this is a good budget option with decent food, clean rooms and helpful staff. Be warned there is no desk in the room, so for those needing to work during quarantine, this hotel may not be your best option.
  • Top quarantine tip: Be sure to take advantage of ordering in food once in a while. This will help break up the monotony of the established meal options which can get a bit repetitive. A data SIM card is a good idea too as the WIFI isn’t always reliable.

5. Ramada Hong Kong Grand (Former Best Western Grand)

  • Full board price (standard room): $480 HKD (1 person). $580 HKD (2 people).
  • Full board price (suite): $ HKD (1 person). $ HKD (2 people).
  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: With one reviewer describing their experience at this 4-star hotel as ‘2 weeks in prison’, you may want to think twice before booking here. As well as the rooms being small and stuffy, guests complain about the cleanliness, with several of them saying that their bathroom was not cleaned properly and one even saying that there was a used mask left on the table! As well as poor hygiene and facilities, the food also gets poor reviews as guests complain about lack of fruit and vegetables.
  • Top quarantine tip: You will definitely want to order food from outside via Deliveroo or FoodPanda if you decide to stay here. However, we reckon you may want to avoid this hotel altogether. There are better options at a similar price.

6. Silka Far East Hotel Hong Kong

  • Full board price (standard room): $498 HKD (1 person). $650 HKD (2 people).
  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: Located in Tsuen Wan, around a 30 minute drive from HK International Airport, this 3-star budget hotel gets mixed reviews, with most people complaining about the tiny size of the rooms. ‘Too cramped to open my suitcase,’ one traveller said.  Basically, it seems you get what you pay for when it comes to quarantine hotels in Hong Kong. Despite the size, the rooms are clean and tidy and the staff do their best to make your stay comfortable.
  • Top quarantine tip: The room and the bathrooms are very small, so if you are travelling as a couple, this may not be the best option for you. 
  • Book on: Agoda | Booking.com

7. Silka Seaview Hotel Hong Kong

  • Full board price (standard room): $498 HKD (1 person). $650 HKD (2 people).
  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: Another hotel in the Silka chain, this one is located in the Yau Tsim Mong District of Hong Kong and gets better reviews than their sister hotel in Tsuen Wan (above). Again, the rooms are small and cramped and many guests say that the furniture and decor could do with an upgrade. However, many people report that the food is decent, the WIFI is good and the staff do their best to make you feel comfortable during your quarantine. 
  • Top quarantine tip: Again, you might want to avoid Silka hotels if you are travelling in a pair as the rooms are only really suitable for one person.
  • Book on: Agoda | Booking.com

  • Summary: Located in Kowloon, this hotel is definitely one of your best options for a budget quarantine experience in Hong Kong. The rooms are very clean, modern and comfortable and the bathrooms are bright with decent power showers. The AC is cold and the WIFI is strong (just how it should be!). The staff at the Pentahotel are particularly friendly and helpful which really makes a difference when you are confined to your room with only them as your point of contact!
  • Top quarantine tip: Request a room with a view out over the mountains for a more pleasant quarantine experience! 
  • Book on: Agoda | Booking.com

  • Can you order food from outside? Yes
  • Summary: This 3-star hotel is one of the cheapest quarantine hotels in Hong Kong and is located right next to a bustling local market which can be noisy/smelly during the day.  The hotel offers spacious rooms, decent facilities and three meals a day. Although there are some reports of the room not being quite as clean as you would expect for a quarantine stay, the hotel is still good value for money in one of the most expensive cities in Asia. Oh and the WIFI could be better so invest in a data SIM so you can hotspot if you’re working! 
  • Top quarantine tip: There is a kitchenette in the room if you want to prepare your own meals during your stay. However, you will need to ask for cooking equipment if you want to use it. The full board food that’s included in the package can be a bit samey (Chinese style), so you may want to take advantage of takeout options to vary up your meals. Takeaway is delivered promptly to your room by the hotel staff.

You can also get supplies from the supermarket and the staff will deliver it. The rooms are clean, bright and fresh with modern furnishings and good facilities.
  • Top quarantine tip: The hotel uses a lot of plastic for serving the meals so be sure to wash and save your dishes and ask the staff to recycle on your behalf. Every little thing makes a difference!

The food also gets great reviews and some say the quality is much better than that at more highly rated hotels.

They also seem to be more eco-minded than some of the other hotels, serving food in compostable containers with reusable cutlery – which is a big plus!
  • Top quarantine tip: Many of the rooms are facing the main highway so the noise of traffic can be quite loud. Be sure to pack some earplugs so that you can sleep soundly.
