BP International House -- This reasonably priced hotel offers "Family Rooms" with a pair of bunk beds that sleep four for HK$1,450, as well as the convenience of a laundry room. But best of all is the adjacent Kowloon Park with its indoor and outdoor public swimming pools, children's playground, lake with flamingos and other birds, and plenty of romping space for active bodies.

Grand Hyatt Hong Kong/Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel -- These two hotels share one of Hong Kong's largest outdoor swimming pools, as well as a splash pool for smaller children and a playground. Both hotels also offer babysitting.

Holiday Inn Golden Mile -- This functional hotel with a great location in Tsim Sha Tsui lets two children 19 and under stay free in parent's room; children 12 and under with two adults can eat for free in hotel restaurants. A rooftop pool, open year-round, and babysitting service clinch the deal for traveling families.

The Salisbury YMCA -- The overwhelming choice for families in terms of price, facilities, and location (just a short walk to both the Star Ferry and the MTR), this Salisbury Road establishment offers large suites suitable for families, an inexpensive cafeteria serving buffet meals, two indoor swimming pools (including a children's pool), an indoor climbing wall, and a bookstore with a children's corner where tots can try out games and books before parents fork over the cash. Babysitting is also available.
