Hong Kong Hotel/Hostel with Early Check-in

Hi everyone, need some suggestions on where to book our stay in HK who can immediately accommodate us when we arrive. We will be there this July and these will be our possible arrival time.

Arrival at HKIA: 2-2:30am

Check-in (possible): 4-6am

Thanks for your help.

Not aware of any that would allow that early check in, unless you book one more night.

Due to the early arrival, you need to check with the hotel regarding the early arrival policy. So far who I know is that you may need to book the room one night before the arrival date to make sure you will be able to do the check-in by the time you arrive at the hotel.

I don't think any accommodation would let you check-in early for free if you arrive at 4-6am. You most likely need to pay for an extra night. Even if you go to your lodging later, as long as it's before the stated check-in time on your booking, free early check-in is at the discretion of the property.

4-6am is not an "early" check-in. It is a late check-in from the previous day. Early check-in would be something like noon for that day, where normally check-in time is after 2 pm or 4 pm.

I have stayed at hotels (not in HK obviously) that allowed early check-in in the morning time even before noon, but certainly, not as early as 4-6am. Again, it's down to the individual property.

There is no property that will guarantee an early check in without paying for it. Some may offer it to you "depending on availability" and due to the high occupancy rates in HK, availability usually is low.

There are a few propoerties with 24hrs check in. You would need to check out at the same time oder pay extra.

My honest opinion: Hong Kong is a very materialistic world. The hotel/hostel property are set up as a business. They wouldn't give you the room even if it is vacant. Because if they do, they open themselves up. They are giving away opportunities that they could have used to make money. No one will give you a freebie until there is some sort of quid pro quo in it for them.
