Reviews of Hotels in Hong Kong
Of all the countries in Asia, trying to find a good hotel in Hong Kong for a reasonable price could be tricky. Pay too little and you can get a bad hotel room. Pay too much… well you can still get a bad hotel room. Thing about Hong Kong is it’s a small area with not a lot of land to build on. So property in Hong Kong is very expensive.
