Mini Hotel Causeway Bay: A Hip & Stylish Boutique Hotel in Hong Kong

Hong Kong, like Singapore, is one of the more expensive cities in Asia. But when it comes to lodging, it seems to have a lot more affordable hotel options than Singapore. At least that was the case when we were searching for one. If you go to booking.com’s list of Hong Kong hotels and click “Lowest price first”, you’ll find several listings in the USD 30 per night price range. You’ll be lucky to find any like that in Singapore.

We had plenty of options in Hong Kong but Mini Hotel in Causeway Bay really stood out. Not only was it affordable and centrally located, it’s also one of the most stylish boutique hotels we’ve ever stayed at. Cheap + chic = take our money!

Lobby

The lobby of Mini Hotel Causeway Bay isn’t on the ground floor so you’ll need to take the lift down to the basement to check in. We paid HKD 429 a night here in September 2016. Not bad at all.

What did I tell you? Isn’t this place nice? I was blown away by how chic this lounge area was! Loved the cowhide chairs.

Check out that funky table lamp. It looks like some funky piece of chemistry equipment.

No need to fret if someone beats you to the egg chair. They have two facing each other. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Room

Tiny but sparklingly clean room. The rooms here are small but this is pretty much what you can expect from hotels in Hong Kong. There’s a hotpot on that rack to the left and a safe underneath the bed.

Despite being tiny, the room pretty much had everything we needed. Almost. It would have been nice to have a small side table to keep our belongings at night (cellphones, wallet, jewelry, etc) and a mini-ref would have been cool too. I know…mini-ref side table! ๐Ÿ˜‰

We liked Mini Hotel so much that we wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else in Hong Kong. Well, except maybe at another Mini Hotel. They have two branches in the city, one here at Causeway Bay and another in the Central district. Mini Hotel Central is every bit as stylish as this one.

    Hello JB, The hotel looks really nice and modern!
    I’m just wondering if it is a nice and central neighbourhood or if it is preferible to stay on another neighbourhood.
    Also not sure if it’s better to stay on HK island or on the other side…
    Can you help?
    First time visit to Hong Kong!
    Thanks,

    Hi Daniela, Causeway Bay is a great area to stay. There are lots of shops and restaurants all around. Personally, I prefer staying on the Hong Kong side but your preferences may be different. Kowloon has more touristy shops and markets while the Hong Kong side tends to be where the locals go. Either side is fine though since the public transportation system is good and it’s easy to get around. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. ๐Ÿ™‚
