Hong Kong’s 14 best hotels for amazing views
From five-star palaces to youth hostels, presidential suites to rented apartments, you can pretty much be guaranteed views that you’ll be posting and sending to friends as soon as you check in.
1. Hotel Icon
Guests come for the sleek Tesla limos, classy club floor and award-winning dining. But most of all for the intoxicating views from rooms, restaurants and particularly the pool deck and gym.
2. InterContinental Hong Kong
3. Hyatt Regency Sha Tin
Sitting next to The Chinese University of Hong Kong means there are lots of students and families, but it’s the view of Tolo Harbor, the Kau To Shan mountains and Sha Tin Racecourse that really catch the eye.
4. Lanson Place Hotel
Look carefully and you’ll see Hong Kong Stadium, home to the city’s annual Rugby Sevens tournament.
5. Mandarin Oriental
If you’re going to kick back in a bath filled with rose petals, there’s no better view to enjoy than the shiny skyscrapers of the city’s Central commercial district and the harbor beyond.
Of course it’s not all five-star luxury at five-star prices, but the views can still be amazing.
7. The Park Lane Hong Kong
You couldn’t be better located to make the most of Causeway Bay, while Victoria Park across the road offers a respite from the concrete jungle.
8. The Peninsula Hong Kong
Views from the Peninsula Hong Kong live up the brand’s lofty standards.

It subsequently became known as the “Grande Dame of the Far East,” an icon of the city combining Eastern and Western hospitality. More than 80 years later, the views of Hong Kong island and the harbor remain a knockout.
9. YMCA The Salisbury
The 372-room property includes a number of suites. The most impressive is the 530-square-feet Harbour View, which sleeps four and has million-dollar views without the million-dollar rates.
10. EAST Hong Kong, Quarry Bay

The face of Hong Kong’s Quarry Bay district has changed arguably more than any other in the past decade, from a residential area to the city’s media business hub.
11. Silvermine Beach Resort, Lantau Island
Lantau is Hong Kong’s largest island and home to the city’s airport, but you wouldn’t know it in sleepy and laid-back Mui Wo.
12. Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong
Each one of the 312 guestrooms offers spectacular city and harbor views, while the rooftop bar, Ozone, a cool 490 meters above sea level, tops them all.
13. Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong
The top-floor Petrus Restaurant under Ricardo Chaneton defines dining with a view.
14. Jockey Club Mt. Davis Youth Hostel
Looking out toward Tsing Ma Bridge and over the multitude of boats in the shipping lanes, it’s a unique angle on the city. You can even catch the nightly fireworks off in the distance at Hong Kong Disneyland.
