The listing was exactly as described and exactly what we were expecting for our 6 night stay. As is typical of what we expect many HK apartment blocks to be like, the quality and cleanliness of the main lobby and corridors can be slightly misleading; be assured that Simon's apartment itself is a very comfortable, well equipped and a very quiet refuge from the hustle and bustle of Central; the location is ideal and very convenient for a visit to the centre of HK, and it was a pleasure to return after long days of sightseeing to a flat that immediately felt like 'home' with a designer's well-considered touch evident in every aspect of the flat. Exceptional spacious shower with plentiful hot water and an amazingly comfortable queen sized bed. Our only disappointment was that we did not actually meet Simon, though communicated very effectively several times by phone and texting. The building's 24 hour front desk/security personnel were pleasant and helpful, even helping us to hail a cab upon departure. My wife and I would seriously consider staying here again if we ever return to HK.
Due to availability, we stayed in 2 different apartments over a 19 day visit to HK and Southern China. The second stay was for only 3 night at the end of the trip, but has an equally positive separate review. Both were selected after hours spent pouring over the many many HK listings. Simon's and the second choice tied for top appeal, and our experience proved that the long review effort was absolutely worth it. A totally accurate listing.
The apartment is wonderful and cozy, and Simon is a great host! My sister and I spent six night's at Simon's and we found his apartment to be very comfortable and in a great location to appreciate Hong Kong. We arrived late and hade to leave very early due to our flight schedules, but that was no problem for Simon. They keys were waiting for us and he gave us his contact details and the details of a friend in case we had any troubles. Simon gave us tips for restaurants and shopping, which were much appreciated and followed. We especially enjoyed the smaller boutique stores, galleries and restaurants within walking distance to the apartment. The subway station and the Trams were only a few blocks away so we were able to see most of Hong Kong by mass transit and of course get to the Star Ferry and Peak Tram.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Simon's apartment in Hong Kong. It was very comfortable and located in the perfect neighborhood. Stylish, nicely decorated, and everything one would need while visiting.
Perfect location and extremely comfortable apartment. Simon was wonderful with any questions and help that I needed and responded very quickly. I would definately stay there again!
Our stay at Simon’s apartment was beyond expectation. The place was clean, neat and cozy, with a nice layout and stylish interior design, which is a big plus. It was a little bit cold in Hong Kong during our stay, and Simon prepared electric heaters for each room . He is an excellent host. We really felt at home there, and would highly recommend it to others. Perfect spot for couples to stay on a trip exploring Hong Kong!
Highly recommended! Exactly as described. And Simon gives you a good informal guidebook of the HK dining.
Simon has a perfect apartment that's beautifully outfitted with stylish finishings and an incredibly comfortable bed! The shower had great water pressure and if you like to lounge around on a dreary day, his kitchen is outfitted with all the appliances you need to make yourself at home. Simon himself was extremely gracious before and during check in (giving us a great list of things to do!) and I know that we will definitely be coming back to his apartment the next time we are in Hong Kong. It's the perfect spot for a couple's stay in this marvellous city (don't miss Il Moro restaurant across the street from his place - the owner is funky but the food is delicious). Thanks Simon again for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment!
