The Best Hong Kong Hotels for Quarantine

These designated Hong Kong hotels go above and beyond to keep quarantining guests sane and comfortable during their stay

Note: The rules around hotel quarantine are changing regularly, so be sure to check on the latest information before booking. 

If you’re arriving in Hong Kong, there is now a 21-day quarantine requirement, in keeping with government COVID-19 prevention measures.

All arrivals need to spend their quarantine at a designated hotel (except those from the Chinese mainland, Macao and Taiwan, who can quarantine for 14 days at home).

Here’s the good news: there is a whole host of designated Hong Kong hotels available to meet a variety of budgets and tastes. Each is implementing special hygiene and safety measures and will only accept quarantining guests.

We’ve scoured the city to highlight the very best options – hotels with special in-room amenities, scenic views, outdoor spaces and concierge services to see guests soundly through their extended stay.
