If you’re planning a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland, one of the things you should know is that it’s in Lantau Island. That’s still a part of Hong Kong, obviously, and still accessible by land, but quite a ways away from the city center. In fact, to get to Hong Kong Disneyland by train — that is, by the MTR, or the Hong Kong Metro — you would have to connect to the Tung Chung line, get off at Sunny Bay station, and switch to the Disneyland Resort Line. (See the Hong Kong MTR map.) If your nearest MTR station is, for example, the popular Tsim Sha Tsui, which is on both the red Tsuen Wan and the dark magenta West Rail lines but not on the orange Tung Chung line, you would have to take three trains to get to Disneyland.

If Disneyland is the main focus of your Hong Kong trip, your best option for accommodations would be either of the three hotels located in Disneyland itself:

  • Disney Explorers Lodge (starts at 1100 HKD)
  • Disney’s Hollywood Hotel
  • Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel (starts at 1400 HKD)

However, if you plan on exploring the rest of Hong Kong and you want to stay in a hotel that is centrally located but still convenient for commuting by train to Disneyland, your best bets are the hotels near the Kowloon and Hong Kong MTR stations, both of which are on the Tung Chung line, so you don’t have to keep switching trains. As a bonus, both stations are also the two main stops of the Hong Kong Airport Express, which means they’re also convenient for travelling to/from the airport AND you can easily take advantage of their free In-town Check-in service.

The following are the best hotels near the Kowloon or Hong Kong stations of the MTR.

(Heads-up: some of them are rather steeply priced…but honestly worth the splurge.)

There are seven hotels with great reviews and ratings within short walking distance of the Kowloon and Hong Kong MTR stations. The top five picks are described in more detail below and all seven are then summarized in the table that follows. To ensure quality, all the hotels shortlisted below have a rating of at least 8.5/10 at (where only verified guests can rate and review hotels), at least 4.5/5 in TripAdvisor, and at least 4/5 at Google Reviews.

1. Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong

The Four Seasons is located in the same IFC Complex that houses the Hong Kong train station, which serves both the MTR Tung Chung line and the Airport Express line. Recently renovated, the hotel’s infinity pool, spa, marble bathrooms, and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide marvelous views of the Hong Kong harbor are among the hotel features that previous guests especially adore. A client travelling with children also particularly appreciated the cupcakes the hotel prepared for the kids, who are sure to also love the huge smart TVs in each room.

2. Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

“Everyday when we returned to our suite, we felt like we were returning to our home rather than a hotel,” says one guest, while another previous client loved that their suite was “well-appointed, ideal for working and for holding small meetings.” And although not all of us can spring for suites at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, the hotel’s high overall ratings prove that their customers’ satisfaction is pretty much across the board. Other highlights include the excellent food and the top-level service from staff. “The attention to detail was superb! Never felt so cared and looked after. Not at all pretentious! Fantastic service, decor and experience.”

3. The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

Only steps away from Central Station, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong is also conveniently just 350 m from Exit C of Hong Kong Station, so you can take your pick of subway lines to get around Hong Kong. It’s also close to shops and the ferry terminal but the hotels doesn’t just rest on its “location, location, location” laurels. Staff are helpful and highly efficient, providing guests with personalized service. The facilities are clean and modern and more than one previous guest has mentioned loving the extraordinarily comfortable linen in the rooms. Overall, says one guest, “If you are looking for something extra in HK, I can recommend.”

4. The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong

Who doesn’t love staying at the Ritz? One guest sums it up thus: “Excellent location, amazing customer service, a room with a spectacular view and the food superb!” Indeed, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong is literally at the Kowloon MTR station, which makes it convenient for getting on the Tung Chung then Disneyland Resort lines, as well as for travelling to and from the airport on the Airport Express. It is also connected to a large mall — shopaholics take note — while the hotel’s excellent restaurants, swimming pool, and gym make it the perfect place for a soul-charging staycation.
