Excellent stay. Great, large studio, nicely furnished and decorated.
It is studio, but there is a curtain that can be used to separate off the bed area to create a more intimate and cozy space.
The apartment is in an old Chinese mansion which some charm to it. The apartment is in a very cool area of Sheung Wan towards midlevels and Soho. Can walk anywhere within 3-10 minutes. Some new coffee shops and restaurants right in the immediate vicinity.
Sze is very responsive and was very quick to resolve some minor requests that i had.
The apartment is modern and bright, just like in the pictures. By Hong Kong standards, it is fairly gigantic, and the open layout makes it seem even bigger. It's a traditional apartment building (people hanging wash in the inner courtyard), but not too large and very quiet.
As nice as the flat is, the location is what I liked most about the place. It's a cute and distinctive neighborhood, arty but not as commercialized as nearby Soho. It is a few minutes walk to the MTR, to the restaurants and bars of Soho/LKF, to the university -- even the botanical gardens are easily walkable on a temperate day.
The area lies half-way up a hill and so every direction leads to steps -- so if you stay here, you better have strong knees. But it's true in most of the prettier areas of Hong Kong Island. You can take in the view while you're catching your breath.
The host took care to make the checkin and checkout smooth, and quickly answered any questions. I couldn't have had a more trouble-free stay even had I gone to a fancy hotel.
Sze was a great host. V friendly and helpful, always available if you have a query. Will give directions for taxi driver and can arrange pick up for airport if necessary.
The apartment is v clean and spacious, comfortable, bright and sunny. Efficient aircon. Good sized bathroom with nice shower. Good kitchen facilities if needed; grocery shops nearby.
The area is cool and interesting, safe. Easy to walk to SoHo or Central. MTR about 10 min walk; buses/taxi on nearby main roads.
Sze provides mobile WiFi device so you can use your smartphone around HK. So no need for roaming data charges or local SIM!
Only drawback for some might be the 4th floor location without elevator, but good exercise!
Had an excellent 2 week working stay, but also ideal for holiday.
Had a very good time at Sze's place. It's quite big for HK standard I guess. Very clean. Within walking distance to everything important (if you don't mind the many stairs). I personally was grateful for the work-out...
Great experience. Apartment was clean, large, functional and in a safe & quiet neighborhood. Sze was a great host. Very helpful. Arranged for cleaning, helped with arranging cab to airport, left notes for places to visit etc...
slight inconvenience was the stairs to the apartment. For most, it would be fine... I was not prepared to deal with the HK heat and the stairs.. .=/
Otherwise, already made plans to stay here again if calendar allows for it.
Beautiful studio apartment, clean in a nice area. Sze is a lovely person that always tries to help and give you some tips about your staying.
