Apartment - Entire home/apt · Elgin Street, Hong Kong, Hong Kong

The Space

My warm and sunny, relaxed-vibed apt is in the heart of SoHo, right under the ‘red’ dot on the map of Hong Kong! My apt oozes chic, urban, hip and all is contained in my spacious studio apartment on lower Elgin st, and in Hong Kong's most sought after location. You will enjoy a long expanse of sunny windows to view the street life below.

I don't live there, so it's all yours, 100% with lots of space and privacy for relaxing after absorbing Hong Kong's lifestyle. I'm not far away though if you need advice on where to eat, shop, browse, climb, swim, sail, surf, or party.

Step downstairs to absorb the undeniably and very friendly vibe below on the cobblestoned street of lower Elgin. SoHo is also the oldest neighbourhood in Hong Kong. What awaits you downstairs is an array of delicious restaurants, galleries, cafes, bars, eclectic boutiques, wet markets, all standing the test of time in this pulsating metropolis we call home. Don’t forget your camera!

You will easily see why SoHo is undeniably Hong Kong’s most charming, colourful, cosmopolitan and pulsating neighborhoods.
My apt is incredibly, perfectly situated to everything you will need for your stay here! Just a few minutes walk down to Central MTR and Sheung Wan MTR and is just one minutes walk to the worlds longest escalator. It is also a 4minute walk to central, the IFC, the HK Airport Express and all ferry piers which depart to the outlying islands. It is just a 10minute walk to the Macau Ferry Terminal and the Western Market.

My apartment has possibly one of Hong Kong’s most spacious bathrooms with a lovely slate tiled floor, beaming with natural light, as is the main open studio-type area. I have heating and air-con, very fast WI-FI, a quaint kitchen equipped with cooking utensils, a nice comfortable bed, a hugely comfortable couch, a new massive white desk, tons of art-filled walls, and probably the largest storage/wardrobe space you could ever want to fill.

My apt ideally suits an individual or a couple who want to be close to step into the buzz of Hong Kong! The long, green sofa is a treat to snooze on, or sleep on if you have an extra friend/child with you. I also have a fold out bed if you need.

I hope to meet and greet you soon to my charming abode. Contact me for any Q’s.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was our first Airbnb experience and the bar has been set high. Louise's apartment is clean, comfortable and laid out perfectly to settle in fast. The location is fantastic, with lots of interesting shops, galleries, restaurants and bars close by.

    The apartment itself has plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space. We had fresh towels so we did not have to use our own, and the bathroom was stocked with all the essentials.

    We had a few questions for our host, and despite being unexpectedly overseas during the time of our stay we found Louise to be extremely swift and helpful in her response, always encouraging us to relax and enjoy. We were given a contact number for somebody local who could help us with any immediate issues (of which there were none) and felt well looked after throughout our short stay. Louise also informed us that we could check our luggage in at the local Airport Express station on the day of out departure, so we could enjoy the afternoon luggage free after we had checked out of the apartment.

    To get to the apartment you climb a few stairs to the third floor, but unless you struggle with stairs, or are carrying a lot, lot of luggage, this shouldn't be a problem at all.

    Overall we had a fantastic stay and are very grateful to Louise for her hospitality. I would definitely recommend to a friend!

  • A nice studio with a great location in the middle of soho. Still quiet during night.

  • A huge thanks to Louise for a fantastic place to explore Hong Kong! I don't think it would be possible to find a place with a better location! The apartment is very clean, with cool decoration and perfect facilities! Louise was super lovely and helpful and responded very quickly with any queries. I would definitely return to this excellent place for future visits to Hong Kong and would recommend it thoroughly to anyone!

  • Louise helped me out tremendously with my stay by providing all the information I needed to get to the beautiful location in Hong Kong. The apartment had everything I needed to make my stay enjoyable, and she was very accommodating with my time schedule of my trip. The neighborhood is in one of the key spots in Hong Kong where everything is easily accessible. I will definitely be staying here again on my next trip to HK!

  • Louise was a great host and her apartment was excellent. She was helpful, flexible, friendly, easy to keep in touch with and meet up with when I arrived in HK. It was so easy to find her place from the airport train station and since I had contact with Louise while I was getting there I had no problems to find my way at all. The location was perfect for me and it was so close to everything you want to see. Great to be in the middle of SOHO and to be able to experience the atmosphere there-great spot-close to all restaurants and so easy to get around! I had such a good time and my friend who stayed there as well said she would def book this place again next time in Hong Kong.
    It was great with the small kitchen to be able to make breakfast and some other simple things. Clean bathroom. Great bed and I felt safe and at home there during my days in HK. Highly recommend this place.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed at Louise's apartment in Feb 2014. I agree with everyone else's comments. The place it great! If you are new to Hong Kong this place is in the PERFECT location.... Right in the middle of a great part of the city, but also on a quiet, walking street.

    If you arrive early (or want to pass some lazy hours of people-watching), I also recommend sitting outside on the patio at the restaurant "Guru" across the street with a glass of beer or wine....

    The only warning I would offer is that when we were there, there was pretty serious construction going on in the apartment next door to the unit (unbeknownst to a very apologetic Louise!). Just a tip to check on status of the construction before your stay. If it is in full force, it will likely be loud for you during the day. (But if you are away from 10-5 like we were, you might not notice!)

    Outside of the small construction blip, the place is great! Go!

  • This is *the* place to stay for a trip to HK. The location can't be beat- you are on a walk street in the heart of town. The pic's of the place represent it well. Louise was an incredible host... as first timer's to the city, we appreciated her logistic support. Steps away from the longest escalator in the world, you can be anywhere in minutes. There is also a new blow dry in the building next to Louise's, in case you need to get fancy before stepping out. Can't wait to come back. I will recommend this place to any friend of mine that visits and wants something that a hotel cannot offer- being right in the mix, on the pulse. Thanks, Louise!!

  • My husband and I stayed in this well appointed Soho apartment for 5 days in February. It was perfect for us: clean, comfortable, and the location could not have been better. I would gladly stay there again, and I will be recommending it to anyone I know visiting Hong Kong.

  • Louise has a nice flat, and is a very helpful host. Bathroom is nice, bed is comfortable. No TV, (but honestly, who needs TV in HK??)

    Location was good, just a short walk (100m) away from the soho escalator. The address could be difficult to find for out of towners, but Louise can give you very specific directions that are helpful. All in all a nice stay, and I would recommend.
