About This Listing
My cozy one bedroom apartment is located in the heart of Central next to all the bars, restaurants and tourist attractions on Hong Kong Island. It's spacious, bright, fully furnished and the perfect spot from which to explore the city.
My one-bedroom apartment (about 500 sq. feet) is fully furnished with lots of natural light, an open kitchen and private roof. Please note that this apartment is on the 5th floor (6th US) with no lift. This is my personal apartment that I rent when I’m traveling and has a homey feel to it with my books and photos. All amenities, such as shampoo, coffee and tea, are provided. I try my best to make it cozy and comfortable for my guests.
This is a great spot if you want to be in the middle of all the action of Soho and in walking distance to many tourist attractions but want the comfort of a home over a hotel. Perfect for one person or a couple.

Soho in Central is right in the middle of all the bars and restaurants that form the heart of Hong Kong Island. It's in easy walking distance to tourist attractions such as the Peak tram, Hong Kong park, Man Mo Temple, Cat street, the ferry piers and, of course, the 24-hour nightlife.
Hong Kong public transport is incredible. The Central and Hong Kong subway stations are an easy walk away, plenty of buses to jump on and taxis are on every corner. Uber is here too.
No smoking inside (there is a roof you can go to). No pets. No more than two people. The couch cannot be used as a bed.
Robin was a great host! She left wonderful recommendations and maps that were so helpful in navigating the city. Her apartment was very comfortable and was a breath of fresh air after coming home from the thick humidity. The stairs were very manageable also. I would definitely stay here again if I 'm back in Hong Kong. Thanks again!
The location of Robin's home was perfect for my first visit to Hong Kong. She left me a bottle of wine and a very helpful house manual with suggestions on restaurants and things to do in the area. She responded quickly to the questions I asked. The photos were accurate and I enjoyed my stay there.
Robin's apartment was a great place to stay in Hong Kong. Very centrally located in SoHo and easy to get to and from the airport on public transportation. I had no problem walking up to the 5th floor and the rooftop garden was very nice. Robin left some fantastic recommendations for nearby restaurants and bars. She was readily available on WhatsApp to answer any questions and was very easy to work with. I definitely recommend Robin.
Our stay at Robin's apartment was wonderful. Robin was an extremely accommodating host, and made sure we had everything we needed including tips for eating and drinking, sightseeing, easy instructions to help find her place and even texting while we were there so we could find the ironing board! The apartment is in a great location in the middle of Soho, and after you climb the flights of stairs, it's comfortable and cosy and within super easy reach of transport, shopping, bars and restaurants. Thanks for a great stay!
Robin made us feel right at home! She helped us find the place, left a nice gift, great instructions and a guide on the local area, and provided all the little things that are hard to bring with you while traveling.
I grew up in Hong Kong years ago, so it was nice being able to slip into a comfortable environment while visiting my family.
I highly recommend Robin as a great host and the location and comfort of her place :)
Robin was a great host! She gave us detailed instructions on how to find her apartment and how to get in.
Once we arrived we found a bottle of wine with a note welcoming us to HK. She also has left a list of some of her favorite things to do and places to eat. We tried almost all of them.
The neighbourhood was very convenient, close to the MTR and easy to get to from the airport. It was also full of very colourful shops, restaurants and markets.
Robin kept in touch checking to see that we were doing ok and sent us some suggestions based on some of the thing we had said we were up to.
We would be happy to stay at Robin's anytime we are back in HK, it felt like our home far away from home!
Robin's flat is a fantastic opportunity to live like the locals (with some of the comforts of home). It's in great location for exploring the city, with plenty to see and do right on your doorstep along with easy access to public transport. She's done really well with the space that Hong Kong buildings allow and the rooms are practical, bright and tastefully decorated. The large sofa, TV, kitchenette, library and comfortable bed made the flat a lovely place to come home to at the end of a long day of sightseeing. Robin's detailed directions made finding the flat very quick and easy, and we appreciated her getting in touch to make sure we arrived safely. The welcome package of city guides, maps and a bottle of wine was a very thoughtful welcome. We highly recommend this listing and would love to stay again.
