If you really want to save money try a guest house/hostel. Alternatively suggest a budget. It's hard to recommend otherwise.

Is that per night or for your entire stay (and if it's the latter, how long are you in HK for?)?

The only one I can think of that will definitely fit all of you in the same room is actually a youth hostel (but looks better than your normal one) called Y-Loft, as they have a room that can fit up to 6 people in the same room. However, the "problem" (I don't think it's a problem, but some might) is that it's located in Chai Wan, which is on the end of the dark blue Island MTR line on HK Island, hence, you'll always need to factor in more travelling time to/from sights/attractions, and you also won't be right in the middle of all the action. Seeing as it's within walking distance to an MTR station though, you'll be able to get around quite easily - it'll just take longer to do so.

There are hotels that have family rooms/quad rooms, but I'm not sure whether they'll allow five people to a room (unless, one of the five happens to be an infant, then, there's perhaps a possibility) like YMCA Salisbury, Hotel Benito, Royal Plaza Hotel, Langham Place Hotel, Holiday Inn Golden Mile, Park Hotel, etc. Novotel Nathan Road used to offer a special deal where you could get 50% off a second room, but I'm not sure whether that's applicable or not. It's definitely best to contact the hotels/apartments directly so you can enquire about bedding arrangements and whatnot - You certainly don't want to be denied a room because you exceeded the maximum amount of people in each room!

With apartments, be aware that you won't necessarily be getting more space than a hotel room. If you want space in HK, you can generally expect to pay premium prices for the luxury, and that's applicable with apartments AND hotels. Also, apartments in general are not easy to find because most require a month's stay as the minimum, but a lot more now are offering them for short stays.

I'm not sure about apartments for 5 people, but these are some two-bedroom apartments (not really familiar with any three-bedroom apartments that are available for short stays, sorry!): Shama Causeway Bay, Shama Central, V Causeway Bay, Central 88, Como Como Causeway Bay, Regent Heights, and 2 Macdonnell Road.

Hotels that offer 2 bedroom suites/apartments include: Lanson Place Hotel Causeway Bay and Harbour Plaza North Point

Please be aware that I've not stayed in any of the above that I've listed, so, please read reviews, as I can't comment about service, quality, etc.

Good luck with your planning and have a GREAT time in HK! :)

Have a look under the holiday rentals in the left column.

We have just booked one of these for a family of 6. We found it cheaper then the hotel rooms.
