Soho 2 Bedroom Apartment P4

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Possession St, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Fun Fact: Possession St, is where the British first landed when they arrived in Hong Kong in 1841, Thus the St Name.
This nice 2 bedroom apartment sits at the intersection of old and new Hong Kong. New Bars & restaurants line Hollywood Rd steps away

The Space

Located in the most convenient spot in Hong Kong, it is close to everything and everywhere you would want to or need to go to in Hong Kong. Next to the Sheung Wan MTR Subway station, 7 Eleven, Bank of China, HSBC, Supermarkets, computer center, Sheung Wan produce market, bars, coffee shops, night clubs, main tram station, bus stations (over 30 different bus routes that stop here). Crossing street is Hollywood Road, the foreign friendly district located in Soho, walking distance to the big and beautiful Hollywood Park with fish ponds and beautiful plants and trees. And also close by is Upper Lascar Row 摩羅上街
which is a famous area for tourist shopping.
There are 2 big bedrooms each with a queens sized bed and a big double sofa bed in the living room. Each bed sleeps at least 2 people. Free ultra high speed wireless and LAN internet, cable TV with DVD player. The apartment was just finished renovated, furnished and decorated with a full on bathroom and shower and a full kitchen with electric cooker, water boiler and all the eating and cooking utensils that a family would need. There are 3 air conditioners in the apartment, one in each room and another in the living room as well as fans and heaters in each room. The apartment building as well as the neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. One of the safest places in the world! The only drawback is that it is on the 4th floor and there is no elevator in the building, but it is really not a bad climb up the stairs at all and is quite good exercise. Other than that, it is the perfect apartment for a family or couple or group of friends or co-workers.

**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

Fantastic traditional Hong Kong neighborhood with lots of history at every street alley and corner. Local restaurants are a treat to experience and public transport is all around to get you to all places of the city.

Getting around

Sheung Wan MTR is 5 min walk down the hill.
Trams, buses, mini buses, taxis are all just a stone's throw away to get you all throughout Hong Kong.

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.

  • Hi,
    We had à nice stay at Brendan ´s place. The flat was very well located, not too noisy, rather clean.
    Brendan was very welcoming and answered to all my questions.
    2 big disapointments though: luminosity and decoration... the flat is not as bright as it looks on the pictures, very cheap neon lights. Also there was no flowers, very poor decoration, all looked old and used.
    This flat is ok for a very short stay but not more.

  • Brendan's place was great! It's a basic two bedroom in an excellent location, has TV and internet and everything you might need for a comfortable stay in Hong Kong. Brendan was nice and accomodating and was able to meet up with my sister and her boyfriend to exchange the keys right after they arrived in Hong Kong. I loved the neighborhood, it's not a far walk to the MTR and there are several convenience stores and other amenities right around the corner, and it's also a short 10 minute or less walk into the heart of Soho. It did get a bit chilly at night, but with the extra blankets that were supplied it was fine. Thank you Brendan, for giving us a great place to stay in the heart of Hong Kong.

  • the host was great, answered all may questions fast, and was very accomodating. :) and she was willing to accomodate our group even though it was stated that max was only 6, plus she even got out of her way to add a mattress without any additional payment :) thanks!! :)

  • This a very professional run set up. comfortable bed, linen, towels, newly renovated bath room, strong shower, even a heater, we didnt expect it. safe, quiet neighbourhood. 4 of us had a wonderful stay. the comfort level could match a hotel. it is only cozier w a living hall to chit chat aroynd. we asked for some umbrellas, we got it. Though i agree w lots of other guest, i feel it wont hurt a bit even if they mention the place is on a 4th floor. it is only responsible to bring this info forward, since there might be others travelling w elderly n kids. but for the young folks, the 4th floor climbing is a fun experience, and necessary after all the good hk food u ve had.

  • This is a really nice and clean apartment in a very traditional neighborhood with an old Hong Kong atmosphere. Smallish but typical of this city. VERY comfortable beds and linens. Brendan and his family are friendly and accommodating, even supplying a rice cooker I requested. Can't do better at this price and I would definitely recommend!

  • Brendan was extremely helpful. We've stayed with him twice. He's extremely responsive and and his places are well kept in great locations.

    For this trip in particular, he went out of his way to accommodate my family's shifting travel schedule. On the day before arrival, due some issues leaving out prior location, we ended up coming 5 hours late. He made arrangements to get us into the flat.

    Extremely pleasant. Would definitely recommend -- especially if you like staying in Sheung Wan.

  • В квартире Брендана жили 5 дней. Это наше первое посещение Гонконга. О городе осталось хорошее впечатление во многом благодаря удачному выбору места проживания.Близко находится стация метро, в пешей доступности интересные места и магазины. Рядом много мест где можно поесть. Удобно, что в квартире есть плитка и микроволновая печь- можно приготовить завтрак и ужин.Рядом с домом уютный парк.Проживание в квартире Брендана оставило хорошее воспоминание.

  • Brendan is a really nice guy. The room is on four floor. He help us take luggage. And the room is very clean and comfortable. Hot water is not enough during a bath. However, I like the room and Bredan, he and his friend are awesome!

  • First day when we reached, Veronica was late for an hour. We waited from 12:30pm to 1:30pm, and her helper came. We went up to the apartment, it was clean but the stairway was cramped and steep. Overall the apartment was okay, just that it's cooler than outside. There was no towel change between our 9-days stay even though I was told there would be. The shower temperature fluctuates - pretty frustrating during winter time. The tv had very limited channels. Would be good if local Hong Kong channels were purchased. We weren't informed of the purchased tv channels until I called. Overall, my family and I were a little disappointed.

  • Brendan met us up at the entrance within a few minutes after we arrived. The apartment was well equipped with everything you'd possibly need for your stay. The location is super convenient with eateries right downstairs. Close to Central and Sheung Wan MTR, easy to commute. No concerns from start to end. Would highly recommend all to stay at Brendan's place!
