Catching a flight at an odd time or having an early flight? This is where hotels near the airport come in handy. As Hong Kong is a small island, this means that it is fairly quick to get to the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) from wherever you are, but it also means that hotels near the airport are not very wallet-friendly.
Depending on your needs, you can live in hotels close to HKIA, or choose other hotels that have a complimentary shuttle bus that connects to the Hong Kong Airport Express, HKIA’s express train that travels to New Territories, Kowloon, and Hong Kong Island from the airport. Here is a list of hotels close to HKIA and Hong Kong Airport Express stops.
