About this listing
Cosy and convenient studio with a splendid view of the city. Right on top of the metro, in an area rich with markets, restaurants and niche shopkeepers. A quiet place to come home to after a night on the town, ideal for romantic getaways.
The studio is fully equipped with all the amenities to accommodate both short and long-term stays. There's a comfortable queen-sized bed to encourage you to sleep in. The bathroom is clean and has dressing room style lighting around the mirror. But the view is what really makes this flat unique.
Most Hong Kong listings have small windows or aren't high up enough to provide an open panoramic view. Here you'll see the Kowloon mountain range on your left, you'll look down onto the bustling Mong Kok streets in the middle, and you'll find the skylines of both Hong Kong and the Kowloon Peninsula on your right.
You're also more than welcome to cook in the flat, though you'd be missing out on the fantastic little restaurants that make Prince Edward a fabulous place to live.
Anything in the house has been left there for your convenience. So please feel free to use the bathing products, take the guide books on your day out, and fire up the entertainment system for your leisure.
☆☆ Please use the space like it's your own! ☆☆
There's a wardrobe for your clothes, coffee and tea, fresh towels, and the kitchen is equipped to prepare simple meals.
Interaction with guests
I'm really keen to make your stay as convenient and enjoyable as possible. So even though you have the whole flat to yourself, I'll be staying just around the corner. If there is anything I can assist you with during your stay, I'm always just a buzz away! As you might have gathered from my reviews, I love chatting about the latest and greatest developments here, so I should be able to loop you into what's happening around town.
Goldfish Street, Fa Yuen Street Market, and the Flower Market are the neighbourhood attractions you'll find in your guide book. What's really special here are the alleys and walkways which connect them. Hong Kong is extremely dense, so the more niche shops have had to move to the second or third floors in walk-up buildings. That's where you'll find your python liquors and goggle-eyed camera repairmen.
☆☆ Rich in markets and local cuisine ☆☆
The cultural richness cuts across time and makes Prince Edward a trendy neighbourhood which keeps its traditional charm while skyscrapers are popping up everywhere. It's amazing just how many good Dim Sum (typical Cantonese dishes) restaurants are still around. There's even two Michelin starred restaurants within walking distance!
Proximity to the MTR is everything in Hong Kong as trains depart every other minute and will take you to most places in under twenty. The Prince Edward MTR entrance is just outside our building, with the following travel times to popular destinations:
☆☆ On top of the metro, very well connected ☆☆
* Mong Kok (1 min)
* Sham Shui Po (2 min)
* Tsim Sha Tsui (10 min)
* Central (15 min)
* Wan Chai (15 min)
* Causeway Bay (18 min)
At night a taxi will take you back from popular nightlife hotspots LKF, Wan Chai, Knutsford terrace within 15 minutes and under HK$ 100.
Prince Edward is also adjacent to the transportation hub of Mong Kok, so even when you're trying to get to the more remote temples and sights, there's literally no place in Hong Kong that isn't served by a bus or train from here.
A21 Bus HK$ 38 // Taxi HK$ 250
Airport arrivals are painless as the A21 Airport bus (50 minutes) stops just 250 meters from our place. A taxi would get you there in 30 minutes. In both cases I'll meet you for the check-in.
Other things to note
