Hotels in Hong Kong near Tsim Sha Tsui

Located near the heart of the Yau Ma Tai the Tsim Sha Tsui Night district is close to many accommodation options from 5 star luxury hotels, to budget hostels.

As much a historic sight as a grand hotel The Peninsular must be visited, at least to see the outside by anybody visiting Hong Kong.

The Evergreen Hotel located at 48 Woo Sung Street is within sound ad small of the night district, a budget hotel with limited facilities but an unbeatable location for someone who wants to enjoy the Night district outdoor restaurants until closing time, then walk safely back to their hotel in minutes.

Just around the corner is the Eaton Hotel at 380 Nathan Road, a nice cozy room, great location. Great value for an overnight stay, it is a 4 star hotel with full facilities.

On the main Nathan Road there are many hotel choices but Novotel Nathan Road located at the corner with Saigon Street is the closest to the Jordan Night district in Tsim Sha Tsui.  As a 4 star hotel it has prices, but also facilities to match.

Further afield are the West Hotel Hong Kong 39 Wai Ching Street Jordan Road Yaumatei, and the Largos Hotel Hong Kong 30 Nanking Street, Jordan Hong Kong, both discount hotels which are within slightly longer walking distance of the district.

There are no luxury options within close walking distance, but a brief taxi-ride away are W Hotel at 1 Austin Road , The Mira Hotel on 118 Nathan Road and Langham Place Hotel north of the district in Shanghai Street on the site of the old Bird district.

Hullett House

Uniquely situated in a historic building this boutique hotel which is located in the former Marine Police headquarters has only 10 rooms, each decorated in the style of a historical period of Hong Kong history.






Tsim Sha Tsui Tsimshatsui?

In Chinese the district is called 尖沙嘴, which literally means Tip Sand Mouth, and is a reference to the sandy river which once flowed here, long since covered by land reclamation.  The pronunciation is impossible to describe using Roman letters alone, some attempts include Jim Shar Joy and Chim Sa Choi but none are of course accurate, and it is very hard for a non Chinese native to pronounce the words correctly.  Hence the common abriviation into TST - sounded out as "tee-ess-tee".  Everybody in Hong Kong will understand if you say TST.

When it comes to writing you will see Tsim Sha Tsui and Tsimshatsui used equally, both are acceptable.  But not Tsimsha Tsui or Tsim Shatsui, that would be incorrect.  However you say or write it, TST is a fascinating place to be.
