Soho’s (“South of Hollywood Road”) most famous landmark, the Central-Mid-Levels escalator, helped transform this area into one of Hong Kong’s best entertainment districts with a huge choice of restaurants, shops, galleries and hotels. Soho is also home to many of Hong Kong’s best gay bars & clubs such as Propaganda, Zoo and Volume BEAT as well as Central Escalator Sauna.

Why this hotel: Tasteful & stylish. Large rooms. Fantastic bar & dining.
Andre Fu is one of hottest new designers in Asia. The Upper House, his first hotel project, has received global acclaim.
This stunning boutique hotel features some of the largest rooms in town. The combination of natural materials, exquisite contemporary art and stunning views (the rooms start on the 38th floor) is hard to beat. Each is quipped with an exceptional range of facilities including an iPod Touch, spacious bathroom with walk-in rain showers, 42″ LCD TV with video on demand, espresso coffee machine, duel temperature wine fridge and complimentary snacks & refreshments.
Café Gray Deluxe and Bar, located on the 49th floor, offers a combination of cocktails & gourmet fine dining as well as ‘everyday’ options in a stunning location. The hotel also has a fitness room with a range of cardio and weights.
The Upper House is positioned halfway between the spas & saunas in Causeway Bay and the bars & clubs in Soho. Both are just two station stops from the nearby Admiralty MTR station – as is the connection to the Airport Express.

Why this hotel: Fantastic gym. Excellent views. Great for shopping.
The fabulous Conrad Hong Kong is located on Hong Kong island in the middle of the Central Business District – quite literally right on top of the Pacific Place Shopping Mall. The hotel is within walking distance (or just a short taxi ride) of most of the gay venues in both Central and Causeway Bay.
As you would expect the Conrad has larger than average rooms (for Hong Kong), with those on higher floors having wonderful harbour views. The hotel’s excellent facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness center that features the latest cardiovascular equipment with individual LCD televisions, free weights and stretch equipment. There is a steam room, outdoor jacuzzi and heated outdoor swimming pool and sun terrace.

Why this hotel: Close to gay scene. Fabulous bar. Boutique luxury.
The LKF is set right in the heart of Central’s Lan Kwai Fong neighborhood and close to many of the gay venues in this part of Hong Kong Island. Club 97 is almost next door, whilst Propaganda and Central Escalator Sauna are just a few minutes’ walk. The LKF is a popular choice for those who are in town to enjoy the nightlife. Great service and very gay-friendly (The LKF’s 9th floor Bisous bar is the venue of the 2011 Mr. Gay Hong Kong final).
The LKF offers 95 contemporary-styled deluxe rooms that are reasonably spacious by Hong Kong standards (between 50-65 m²), featuring very comfortable beds and free WiFi. Guests have use of the hotel’s gym and access to the rooftop sun terrace.

With over 2.1 million people crammed into Kowloon, it is one of the most densely populated places on the planet with a huge array of shops, restaurants and hotels.
The tip of Kowloon peninsula, Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀) is a major tourist area and also has a good number of gay venues. Further north, Mong Kok (旺角) has a huge choice of shops and is renowned for its numerous gay saunas.

Why this hotel: Iconic & cool. Great for shopping. Gay-popular.
We love how the generic ’W’ concept of iconic design & contemporary luxury can be blended with local influences to create an experience that is both predicable yet unique.
In Hong Kong, you will find the same ‘Wonderful’, ‘Fabulous’, and ‘Spectacular’ rooms, the Munchie box and the excellent BLISS products. But the styling is cutting-edge Asian at its best. Of special note is the impressive outdoor, glass-edged swimming pool and sun terrace on the 72nd floor
Airport transfers could not be easier as the hotel is located above the West Kowloon Airport Express railway station. There is direct access to Elements, one of the best shopping malls in Kowloon with its huge range of restaurants and cafés.
Gay scene-wise, you are spoilt for choice. Double, Hunter, Big Top, the award-winning Alexander 24 and Club Houzz are all nearby, as is the exclusively male JU Men’s Club massage spa and the friendly Boo Bar. The gay scene on Hong Kong island can be reached quickly by MTR or taxi.

9.1 Fantastic based on 140 Agoda reviews
Why this hotel: Fantastic pool & bar. Great location. Top-rated.
Gay travellers with higher than average disposable incomes have been drawn to The Peninsula for years. Why? Because it is one of the finest city hotels in Asia. The Peninsula offers 300 luxurious classical rooms with super comfy beds combined with the latest in-room technology including complimentary WiFi. The service is world-class and very discreet.
The well-equipped gym, 18-meter swimming pool and sun terrace with wonderful views across Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong Island cityscape has to been seen to be truly appreciated.
The location is excellent for shopping, eating and the Star Ferry to Hong Kong Island. Oh, did we mention the Peninsula is just a short walk from all the Tsim Sha Tsui sauna and bar action?

Why this hotel: Ultra-modern. Beautiful design. Fantastic gym & pool.
The new Hotel ICON is rather special and, in our opinion, a compelling option for gay travellers. Firstly, it is actually a teaching and research facility operated by the highly-regarded School for Hotel & Tourism Management. Secondly, if you are a design aficionado, then the stunning building will knock your socks off.
The surprisingly spacious rooms feature impressive city views, a state-of-the-art entertainment system, a designer chair for chilling out. Some rooms have access to the ‘Above and Beyond’ lounge on the top floor where breakfast is served that includes Asian and international dishes.
The hotel has a heated pool on the 9th floor and a state-of-the-art gym. If you need a different sort of workout, then the gay saunas, spas and bars of Tsim Sha Tsui are about a 10-minute walk away.

Why this hotel: Utterly stylish. High-tech rooms. Near the gay scene.
What do you get if you spend $65million on a makeover? Well, visit The Mira to find out.
This very stylish, newly renovated and ultra modern hotel is located in the heart of vibrant Kowloon. As with many other hotels in Hong Kong, the room sizes are, by international standards, relatively small, but they certainly pack a lot in!
The technology is cutting-edge and includes a Sony PC with Blu-ray DVD, internet radio, free WiFi and a very clever phone that you can use anywhere – inside or out of the hotel. We also like the top of the range mattress that will ensure a good sleep.
The Mira has a gym, spa and a fabulous indoor pool illuminated by an array of LED lights.
Location-wise, the Tsim Sha Tsui MRT station is a few steps from the hotel, and you can walk to the harbour in about 15 minutes. Boo Bar, a favourite of ours in Kowloon, is just a few minutes’ walk, as are a number of rather good gay spas. The huge range of gay saunas in Mong Kok can be reached in just a few minutes by MRT or taxi.

Why this hotel: Award winner. Harbour views. Excellent service.
The award-winning Kowloon Shangri-La is known for its warm and friendly hospitality towards gay travellers. The hotel is conveniently located in the Tsim Sha Tsui shopping and entertainment district, overlooking the world-famous Victoria Harbour and just a 10-minute walk from the gay scene.
The luxurious rooms are amongst the most spacious in Hong Kong. Each room features floor-to-ceiling bay windows with breathtaking harbour or city views. Onsite facilities include an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam bath, jacuzzi, solarium and massage services.
If you fancy visiting the gay bars and clubs, then the Star Ferry is just a 10-minute walk, and the MTR is next door. The nearby “Avenue of the Stars” promenade is a great walkway along the waterfront and especially colourful at night.

Why this hotel: Classic luxury. Comfortable rooms. Great for shopping.
This beautifully elegant hotel dates back to 1865, boasting an extensive collection of over 1,700 Chinese art pieces. Needless to say, the service is exceptional. Fit for a queen.
The spacious bedrooms have a timeless classic design, and we challenge you to find a more comfortable bed! Naturally, they offer a pillow menu. The club floor offers hot and cold drinks, cocktails, wines, beer, nibbles and mini-desserts 24 hours a day.
Shopaholics will be delighted to find designer boutiques (Dior, Gucci, Prada, etc.) within The Langham, not to mention the 600 plus shops at the next door Harbour Mall. No need to book the Rolls, as the hotel is within comfortable walking distance of all the Tsim Sha Tsui gay saunas, spas and bars.
