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 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. 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 3rd 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.

Guest Access

- FREE WiFi

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.

  • The flat is clean,and location is convenient. Brendan is very patient to answer our questions.

  • After several bad experiences with airbnb, we (the group of 4 of us) were actually very pleasantly surprised by the quality of our stay here. It was a newly renovated apartment that looked pretty much exactly like how it was described. Close to Soho/Sheung Wan MTR, it was very easy to get around everywhere on HK. Brendan was extremely professional and prompt with his responses, and the entire stay was smooth. The only thing that was off was that the bathroom drain was slow...

  • Best thing of the apartment is (website hidden) is very expensive and I think we had a very good relation in terms of price/location. The place was very clean and all the scential to have a nice stay, clean towels, clean sheets, clean rooms...
    Definitively I'll stay at Brendans place on my next visit to HK
    Brendan is a really great host. He always kept in touch and very nice guy.

  • The place is very convenient and clean. We like there so much. Next time I'll be there again.

  • Brendan patiently answered all our queries about the apartment before our trip and his mom answered our calls during our stay in a surprisingly quiet and safe neighborhood, near eateries, bakeries, and public transport. Good food? right at your doorstep. Local food? right at your doorstep. McDonald's? right at your doorstep. Great pork buns? right at your doorstep. We slept soundly and hardly noticed the neighbors. The bathroom was big for hong kong standards, beds were comfy and pillows really soft. Airconditioning was perfect and water supply no problem. We will definitely go back to Brendan's place and oh...the three flights up really helped in my exercise!

  • Brendan was great to deal with.
    The Apts were basic but very clean.
    The important thing for us was location and the Apts were perfectly situated.
    I will certainly use Bredan again for future trips to Hk.

  • Brendan was one of the most easiest host I've ever rented from in my years of travel. The location is centrally located and very clean. If I'm ever back in Hong Kong, I will totally stay here again.

  • We had a nice stay at Brendan's place. Even the apartment was small, it was clean and tidy and our expectations were fully met. The biggest plus is the central location of the apartment. Brendan was a really nice host and provided a lot of additional information for sightseeing in Hong Kong. We didn't have any problems with check-in or check-out. Nice experience, would stay there again.
