The Space

This is a large 2 Bedroom apartment that is newly renovated, brand new air conditioners in each room and in a great location 2 minutes from Central. Everything you would need with high speed internet, wifi, Cable TV, DVD Player, Flat screen LCD TV, a full kitchen with microwave, stove and electric cooker, and refrigerator. There's a full bath with shower. It is on the top floor of the building and there are 2 working elevators. In the area, you will find banks, bus stops, tram stops, subway stops, supermarkets, convenient stores and laundry mats all within walking distance from the building. There are double beds in each bed room and a double pullout sofa bed in the living room. Therefore if 2 people share each of the beds, then the apartment could comfortably accommodate up to 6 people. It's within walking distance to well know night life districts so don't miss out on SOHO and LKF.

**In the past I have borrowed out adapters for FREE to guests as a courtesy and convenience, however, too many have not been returned (over 50) and I can no longer keep up with restocking. Unfortunately, I can't provide these for free but if necessary, will sell them AT COST (@HKD20) instead. Sorry that this gesture failed.

Interaction with Guests

As much as possible or invisible if you want. I will try to meet with arriving guests and show them the area. Whenever guests need information or recommendations, I am always available via messaging or phone.

The Neighborhood

The Sheung Wan neighbourhood is ever changing and a fantastic mix of "old' and "new" Hong Kong. This apartment is located in the heart of Hong Kong's commercial, cultural and shopping districts and within short walking distance to the subway and HK Macau Ferry Pier. A few minutes walk away from the harbour front and the fantastic Sun Yat Sun Memorial Park and Public swimming pool over look the world famous Victoria Harbor.

Getting around

The Sheung Wan MTR station is but 8 min walking distance away that takes you all over Hong Kong and Kowloon. There are also buses, trams, minibuses that run near the doorstep of the building on Des Voeux Road West Road and take you to every corner of the island and beyond.

Other Things to Note

Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.

  • Great place to stay in Hong Kong. The apartment was nice, clean and cosey.

  • For first-time travelers to HK like me and my family, I would say the experience of staying in the apartment was mixed. While the location was good and facilities in the apartment were good, the apt itself was very small especially the bathroom.
    Brendan met us on arrival and explained all the rules but that is the last we saw of him. I am not sure if the normal process is that cleaning won't be done during the time the guests are in but if that is the case what is the "cleaning charge" for?
    Pros: Good location, Nice beds, Availability of stuff like kitchen vessels, fridge, soaps, etc.
    Cons : Extremely small bathroom (my well-built husband said he was barely able to move around inside the shower panel); No cleaning or replacement of towels during our stay; one AC and one light not working

  • Brendan's apt was perfect for our visit. The location is great. The beds were very comfortable to sleep on. The apartment was surprisingly quiet. And the the apartment was quite modern. Internet worked really well too. Only thing that was only a slight inconvenience was that I am 6'4" and the bathroom was quite tight but to be expected in Hong Kong.

  • Nice clean cosey apartment, great location

  • Lovely apartment. There is all that is needed for a normal life. The apartment is small, but it is normal for Hong Kong. Downstairs shop 7-11. 100 meters square and a wonderful promenade. Near many cafes and restaurants. 5-10 minutes by taxi to all the attractions of the island. Thanks Brendan for what greeted us and explained everything. On your next visit to Hong Kong - to Brendan.

  • As other comments say, the building is a bit old, but the apartment is just great! Location is also a strong point, very central, though some people might find it too "chaotic" - it is a very busy area with heavy traffic and tall old not-so-good-looking buildings. Brendan is a great guy and promptly helped us accomodating our 4th group member in an extra mattress.

  • Great stay. The place was very clean and suited our needs well. The place was a little bit farther from the MTR than I had originally hoped (12- 13 minutes walking for me) but a cab ride to the main area in Central was usually only 22 hkd (less than $3 US) so it worked out. Elevator in the building was nice (since the apt is on the 12th floor) and the area felt generally safe. The 7-11 at the bottom of the building and Starbucks down the street were godsends.
