Garden View YWCA Hotel Hong Kong is a good-value hotel on the northern slopes of Victoria Peak. It offers excellent views of the city and the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens -- one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world, with over 390 animal and 1,000 plant species.
The hotel is in the prestigious Mid-Levels area, near the city's business and financial districts -- the International Finance Centre and IFC shopping mall is 16 minutes by foot. The historic Peak Tram, with its must-see 360-degree views from the top of Victoria Peak, is a 7-minute walk – go around 5pm to get the best day, sunset and night views. You can also sample the buzzing bars, restaurants and nightlife of Lan Kwai Fong – just 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. Central Station Metro, a mere 12-minute walk, offers easy access to some of the city's most popular attractions. Take the Metro (via Tsim Sha Tsui Station) to the Star Ferry Pier and board the ferry to Kowloon for the world-famous views of Victoria Harbour, which National Geographic describes as one of 50 "places of a lifetime".
