For this trip to Hong Kong, I was doing my research for that accommodation everyone was looking for - clean, inexpensive and well-located. One of the more interesting hotels I came across was Mini Hotel. They have 2 locations – 1 in Causeway Bay 銅鑼灣, and the other in Central 中環. I stayed at both!

I wanted a boutique hotel that won’t burn a hole in my pocket, and Mini Hotel met with all my requirements.

Mini Hotel (Causeway Bay)
8 Sun Wui Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

My first stay at Mini Hotel was at their Causeway Bay property, one of the prime locations in Hong Kong. P.s. they have a large, 3-level Apple Store nearby! *Lets out a little fan girl scream*

Causeway Bay seems to be surrounded by never-ending crowds! Mini Hotel @ Causeway Bay is a convenient 15-minutes walk from Causeway Bay Station (Exit F2).

If you’re lost, navigate your way to the more prominent Lee Gardens. Mini Hotel is located right opposite.

First look at Mini Hotel – I love the place already! Modernly done up, the hotel’s interior screamed in my style! It was elegantly decorated in calming tones, with pop of colours that pieced up the place well. Totally Instagram-worthy!

There were frames after frames of artistic pictures – from travels, sceneries, models, famous people, pictures of the past, etc. Made me ponder for a moment whether I was in a hotel or an art gallery! *.*

At the point of registration, I was handed a Handy Smart Phone that I could use during my stay. I’ll elaborate on the phone later!

The hotel’s guest area was a mix of contemporary meets traditional Chinese style. Doesn’t it look awesome!? The hotel also provides iMacs, free for guest use.

Rooms are categorized into Solo, Classic Twins, Mini Double and Smart Queen.

I spent my night in their Smart Queen room.

I always knew that hotel rooms in Hong Kong were tiny, match box-style. When booking a hotel, my constant worries revolve around space constraints. Though compact in size, my room was cozy and there was definitely sufficient space to move around.

Can I add how clean and tidy it is? My room was equipped with the necessities – free wi-fi, Satellite/cable colour LCD TV, toiletries and a cleverly designed safe under the bed. Most importantly, they have a hair dryer and kettle!!!!! They get plus points from me for that!

Do take note that the toilet is see-through though. It wasn’t much of a worry, but nevertheless, choose your travel partner well!

TIP: During the booking process, I specially requested for the rooms on Level 5 because they each have their own private outdoor deck!

This is the Handy Smart Phone that I mentioned about earlier. Each guest will be given one of these telephone tablets during check-in. During the period of your stay, you can even carry it out of the hotel! You’ll gain access to FREE 3G Data, local and international calls to selected countries, and a built-in city guide.


Other rooms include the Classic Twin room.

This is the other Smart Queen room.

I filmed a short video of the place. Take a look! :)

Mini Hotel (Central)
38 Ice House Street, Central, Hong Kong

The day after, I moved to their other Central location since I was more than satisfied with my stay at Causeway Bay. Since I travel solely on the MTR train, moving around was much favourable.

In case you’re unaware, Central is surrounded by famous Hong Kong eateries and attractions! You’ll be surprised by what you can find when you take a stroll around.

If you’re the party type, the location was nothing but convenient! Lan Kwai Fong is literally only a few steps away. Wyndham Street and Soho are also in the vicinity.

However, in spite of the close proximity to the lively entertainment outlets famous for its night scene, the rooms were quieter than I’d expected.

The design of the lobby was slightly more toned down, but still as chic-ly designed as the one at Causeway Bay. They even have a grand piano!

I was surprised to find a vending machine that’s meant for hotel guests to purchase a quick snack or bathroom toiletries!

Rooms are categorized into Solo, Mini, Smart and Smart Plus.

Once again, I slept well in the comforts of their Smart Plus room. I realized that the design of the rooms involve a lot of mirrors – perfect for the vain pots! Also, if you’re a private person, you might want to draw the curtains since high-rise buildings surround the hotel on the opposite.

The toilet was directly across the bed, similarly equipped with the necessities to start and end your day.

My room came with this lovely balcony overlooking the city. What a better way to chill in your room?

The other room I saw was the slightly smaller Smart Room.

All in all, I highly recommend Mini Hotel for the pleasant surprise at an affordable price. It was fine for me that breakfast wasn’t provided – this means I have the option to eat at the ones on my list. I don’t know about you, but this won’t be my final stay at the hotel!
