mmm....TST is still the best place, for the strategic location. 4-5 Star: Mira Hotel, Kowloon Hotel, Holiday Inn Golden Mile, 2-3 star: Imperial Hotel (book direct to avail of late checkout), budget: lots, like Hop Inn. TST is to HK as Mandaluyong/Ortigas is to Metro Manila. Easiest way to the area: take Airport Express (just get the 300 hkd MTR travel pass with round trip ticket plus unli MTR with redeemable 50HKD upon departure) and get off Kowloon Station, then take the free hotel shuttle bus to TST (e.g. K2 will drop you off at Holiday Inn Golden Mile; For complete list of routes, go to MTR website) or take a red cab and pay 40hkd.
