Neither. Both are COMPLETELY swamped by Mainland Tour groups, and very possibly full in May's 1st week.

There are MANY hotels at this price range category around HK that would be MUCH better and much more pleasant for a family with young children.

Just my opinion.

I don't know about the Wan Chai one, but I definitely do not recommend the TST one.

We would need two rooms as it is 5 of us so budget would be around HK1600 to HK1800 for both rooms a night

Butterfly-on-Prat is getting good reviews generally so you may want to check out their rates too.

May I know what's wrong with Empire hotel in TST? I just saw some good comment on this hotel. Anyway, any suggestion for a hotel near shopping area and the room's rate is below HKD500? I would like to celebrate this year christmas in HK and would like a hotel which is convenient. Thanks

For hotels below $500, do a search in the forum for a thread posted by "Anyquestions".

I have known several people who have stayed at Empire Hotel, and all of them gave it horrendous reviews.
