Hollywood Rd, SoHo, Fab Studio 4A

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

Located steps from Hollywood road, with new eateries, art galleries and trendy bars rejuvenating this traditional neighborhood in the heart of the city. The studio and private rooftop garden is guaranteed to add that extra memory to your stay in HK.

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. The building entrance is on Upper Lascar Row 摩羅上街 which is a famous area for tourist shopping. There is 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 is a brand new air conditioner in this studio apartment, as well as a ceiling fan. 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 after a long day of too much good food! Plus you have access to the private rooftop balcony where you can relax and read of have a small gathering of friends spend time in this beautiful neighborhood. it is the perfect apartment for couples or a small group of friends or co-workers.

**In the past I have borrowed out local 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.

  • Brendan was a great help showed me to my room. The room itself was quite small in true Hong Kong style but it was fine for me given that I was really only there to change and sleep. The location was good right next to Hollywood road, cute shops and nice restaurants. I would stay there again (as I was there on my own but it would be tight for a couple).

  • Awesome host. It was freezing when I arrived in HKG and Brendans mom was kind enough to get me a heater to keep things warm. Small place but this is the norm for HKG. Very central so close to LKF and central area. Will stay here again :)

  • Great location, small room but efficiently equipped, clean and nicely decorated, fantastic roof top.

    Brendan was fantastic to deal with, very responsive and flexible.

  • Great and very clean room in a fantastic location. Is not SoHo SoHo but this area is much more cooler with wonderful little shops and tasteful eateries. Brendan's reco were awesome try the tea houses listed in his book! The rooftop is amazing even you have to share with another apartment. The room is a little bit smaller than it looks on the pictures. We would choose it again!

  • Great location, nice and clean apt. My family like to stay at Brendan apt. No complain . Will highly recommend to friends about Brendan place. Brendan help us a lot for finding a suitable apt for my family to stay before travelling to HK ...

  • Staying at Brendan's Appartement was great. It was the first time for me to book via AirBnB and all worked out fine. Directions given by Brendan before were very precise (i.e. Getting the keys). The Appartement itself is in a great location, very central and close to public transport. A big plus is the nice terrace, which is shared with another appartement on the same floor. It is small but has everything you need. It was very clean, only thing is that apparently shortly before my arrival a door (I assume it was to the appartement next to it) has just been bricked up and you could still see the plastering and it has not been painted over yet but apart from that all was fine. I would stay there definitely again. Regards Johann

  • Host was great, responsive to communication. Room was clean and renovated which was great. It is in HK so room sizes are smaller in HK than other cities/countries, bear that in mind. Location was really great and the noise was very minimal considering it is so close to Central (1 stop away). Thanks Brendan!

  • Lovely! Small but everything I needed, spotlessly clean, Brendan and friends very helpful. Perfect location, Would recommend.

  • Brendan's apt was exactly as promised. It is a great, small place in what we decided was the best area of the city. As a point of reference, we are New Yorkers, early 30's, living in the west village of Manhattan and we feel this area is the best in NYC. Anyway, There are tons of great restaurants and bars in the area where this apt is. Actually, the Soho area is literally the only area with a diverse nightlife. I highly recommend this apt and area if you want to explore Kowloon and HK island during the days, and go out, have drinks, meet other travelers and expats at night. There is not much shopping near by, with the exception of antiques which there are many shops fun shops to explore. However, you can walk to the metro (which is exceptional), and get to both of the mall areas very easily. Also, you can actually walk from the apt to the airport express in about 15-20 min. The mid-level escalators are about an 8 min walk and this is quite useful. The apt has a nice rooftop with tables/chairs and you can order food to be delivered or have some drinks and enjoy the weather. Note that if you have a lot of luggage (meaning your bags are the kind that can't be carried on the plane), you may find the apt a bit small. There is not much open floor space and no closet. It is nice that you have a small refrigerator and kitchen ware, and the AC works well. We would stay here again and recommend it.
