Hong Kong is surprisingly fairly affordable, and staying at Hong Kong Island is possible without a ballooned budget after all. Usually travelers check out Kowloon, or Tsim Sha Tui for cheaper accommodations to make it work within their budget but in between high rise buildings, and busy streets of Causeway Bay, you’ll find Mini Hotel Causewaybay tucked seemingly unpretentious but definitely stylish semi-budget hotel.
Mini Hotel Causeway Bay provides stylish accommodation equipped with modern facilities located in one of the busiest part of Hong Kong Island. It is a mix or artistically designed, and minimalist for comfort. The lobby alone is a mix of art and function where you can wait for either your guests/friends, or work (like we did) in between exploring eccentric Hong Kong. Don’t get me wrong internet connection is fast and free in the entire hotel. Sometimes you need a break from being cooped up in the room, and working with other guest around is a good way to meet, and talk to fellow travelers.
The hotel also has free use of mobile with internet connection you can bring with you when you go exploring around Hong Kong. Unfortunately, I was not able to experience this to share more about it. We were told it’s only available when you’re booked directly via the hotel’s website.
Hong Kong properties is expensive, and very limited in space. You will find truth in this if you’re scouting for accommodations which are usually cramped and limited in floor space. Again, if you know me, and my particulars to floor space, and space in general, you will understand.
At Mini Hotel Causewaybay you will find that their rooms are spacious compared to other hotels within their room rate range. The rooms are stylish, and sleek looking with white and mirrored walls that opens up the space. Even the see glass wall of the toilet and shower makes room look more spacious without solid walls separating the spaces. Mostly I worked inside my room if I’m not out exploring the city.

The internet connection is fast and good enough for video conference meeting with clients, and there’s a flat-screen cable TV for entertainment as well.
