Hong Kong is a visually electrifying city and a dizzying number of up-and-coming hotels have been popping up all over the city.

It is a metropolitan paradise and you are never too far from a stylish place to spend the night at.

This Skyscanner list includes some of the sleekest, trendiest and most tasteful rooms available to help you find the perfect place to lay your head on your next trip to Hong Kong.

1. Ovolo Southside

At Ovolo Southside, guests have the option of having either city view or mountain view rooms in this warehouse-turned-hotel. Located in the gritty industrial neighbourhood south of Hong Kong, the vibe is hip and urban here.

The hotel's public areas are graffiti-drenched; the art installations are courtesy of a fine mixture of local and international artists. Art lovers will appreciate this, as well as its proximity to local galleries.

Once upon a time, Wong Chuk Hang was the heart of blue-collar Hong Kong; but these days, it is transforming itself into something more stylish and inspiring.

The hotel is a 15 minute cab ride from Causeway Bay MTR station.

2. J Plus Hotel by YOO

J Plus Hotel by YOO is the first hotel in Asia to be designed by Philippe Starck, the world-renowned French designer known for his unmistakable and timeless designs.

Located near Causeway Bay MTR station and a simple 10-minute walk from stylish shops, the hotel provides free drinks around the clock and offers tempting afternoon cakes and evening wine in their lobby.

This smart hotel provides unlimited 3G, WiFi, and a special service where you can use their "HANDY" smartphones for unlimited IDD to some countries including Singapore.

3. The Peninsula Hong Kong

Since its grand opening in 1928, The Peninsula has represented old-world class and glamour, and is still going strong in the 21st century.

Located a stone's throw from the Tsim Tsa Tsui metro station in Kowloon, the hotel doubles as the flagship for the ever so luxurious Peninsula brand.

On top of that, the hotel's Peninsula Arcade is one of the city's finest shopping destinations. The Peninsula is also known as the place to go for a luxurious afternoon tea session.

4. Mira Moon Hotel

Trendy interiors matched with contemporary reinterpretations of ancient Chinese Moon Festival myths is the look for this award-winning boutique hotel.

An effortless blend of Chinese folklore and Dutch design, the hotel is located in the party district of Wan Chai, where people go to conduct both business and pleasure.

The hotel's recent revamp has upped the ante for local boutique hotels, and private rooftops equipped with BBQ and beanbags will definitely liven up your stay.

After check-in, you will be greeted by a modern but orientally design room, with sexy marble bathrooms that come with his and hers amenity kits. The closest MTR is Causeway Bay.

5. Lan Kwai Fong Hotel

This beautiful hotel combines Asian aesthetics with Asian hospitality, with an emphasis on style and comfort. From the reviews, it's clear that they've found the perfect balance of these often disparate notions.

The rooms of Lan Kwai Fong Hotel are tastefully decorated with oriental decor, presenting guests with a stimulating stay aesthetically, visually and experientially.

The location is perfect, just walking distance from Lan Kwai Fong as well as the city's SoHo district. Knock yourself out with the limitless choices of fine dining, nightlife and tons of entertainment destinations.

You'll also be glad to find pockets of antique shops, galleries and boutiques around. The nearest MTR station would be Sheung Wan, just 3 minutes away.

6. Hotel Indigo Hong Kong Island

Located near Wan Chai MTR station, Hotel Indigo's comfortable rooms come replete with contemporary art by local artists. One unforgettable feature is the cantilevered glass-bottomed infinity pool which can be found on the roof.

The Skybar commands picture-perfect panoramic views of the city, and is an excellent place to unwind and reflect on all that you did and saw (and bought) during the day.

7. Hullett House

Celebrate old Hong Kong in this historic landmark. The white-stucco colonial building, near Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station, was once the Marine Police Headquarters, but has since been transformed into a beautiful boutique hotel.

Apart from that, it has a huge variety of dining and drinking options around, as well as local landmarks such as the Avenue of Stars and The Peak.
