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.
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.

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 Sheung Wan MTR station is but 5 min walking distance away that takes you all over Hong Kong and Kowloon. There are also buses that run near the doorstep of the building on Hollywood Road.
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.
This is a Strictly NON SMOKING Flat.
UPON ARRIVAL AT PROPERTY, ALL GUESTS MUST WAIT FOR ME AT THE FRONT GATE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. BUILDING RESIDENTS WILL COMPLAIN TO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT IF THE LOBBY AREA INSIDE BUILDING IS BLOCKED. THANKS FOR YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY.
Check in time is AFTER 12:30 pm. Make sure to contact us by phone at least 30 minutes prior to arrival such that we can meet you at the flat to hand you the keys and acquaint you to the surroundings. As this is a family business, please try your best to arrive at the apartment as early as possible. After 11:30pm as transport to the apartment is limited for us, we have to charge HKD150 to cover our taxi transport cost to and from the apartment. We are generally exhausted at the end of the day and we really would rather you arrive early and not have to charge this.
Guests must wait for us OUTSIDE the building upon arrival and not enter the building without us as this causes unnecessary misunderstandings with the property management and residents of the buildings.
Check out time is STRICT at 11:00 am. NO EXCEPTIONS or you will be charged for an extra full day. Our cleaning crew will arrive at 11:00 am to service the flat for the next guest, thanks for your cooperation.
Please help us save the environment by turning off electrical appliances when leaving the apartment or not using them.
Water heater needs to be turned off when not using. If it breaks due to prolonged time left on, you will not have any hot water for your stay and will be subject to expensive repair charges.
In the case that you have an evening departure flight:
Please note that you can check in your luggage at anytime during the same day as your flight at the Hong Kong Station Airport Express, which is only a 5 minute taxi or bus ride from the apartment. That way you would be free to explore the city on your last day, not having to worry about your luggage or rushing to the airport since you have already checked in, you will not have to be at the airport as early as everyone else.
All airlines flying from Hong Kong airport offer In Town check in, EXCEPT the following:
Jetstar Asia Airlines
A great place to stay in a fun part of town. The apartment is clean, well maintained and has everything I needed for a short stay. It is quite small, but this Hong Kong after all and space is a premium.
Brendan shared many useful info before we arrived at Hong Kong including the best transportation choice from airport to downtown and the must-visit lists. Our studio is in great location, not far away from MRT station and it's easy to get a taxi too, restaurants, 7-11, mini-markets in nearby. It's clean and fully equipped and almost everything we need is already prepared by the host. Only one reminder for future visitors that this is an old building so no elevator available, make sure you can manage carry your luggage upto 5 floors.
Had a pleasant stay. The room wasn't decorated the same way as the photos but the room was the same. Location great, but the place is really small and it is located up a few flights of steps so be prepared for a bit of exercise. Wifi worked fine. Lovely rooftop to chill out. No flexibility on check-in and check-out times. This is run as a business so don't expect the host to go the extra mile. Overall, ok but it's worth shopping around
The flat is located close to an MTR station and the central ferry piers. It is small and clean, and has everything that we needed.
Brendan's apartment was in the vibrant Sheung Wan district with all of the cities best food and drinks within a few blocks. He was very responsive and even went out of his way to allow us to check-in a bit early. Fantastic host!
Estuve en el apartamento de Brendan 2 días. El apartamento es bastante pequeño aunque no menos que cualquier habitación de hotel en el Soho en HK. Estaba todo limpio y en buenas condiciones. Bien acondicionado teniendo en cuenta que fuimos en noviembre y ya no hace calor.
Brendan nos dio algunos tips interesantes sobre la ciudad.
Recomendable, sin duda, tanto por su situación como por la terraza donde puedes respirar y tomar un café viendo los tejados de HK.
This is a fabulous apartment in a wonderful Hong Kong location. We were met punctually by the host and taken to the apartment for a tour and location and workings of the facilities. It was spotless and all had all the amenities a traveller would need. it doesn't have a washing machine, but a laundry is only 100 metres away (HK$35 a big bag, washed dried and folded). Functional kitchen, fabulous sized bathroom for HK, A/C, TV and a comfy bed. Wifi comes with the room and had excellent speed. There is no elevator, and has 70 stairs, which we found no problem (we are 60 yrs). The big bonus is the rooftop area. Great for a cool beer after a day's touring and shopping. Big space and worth every cent. Location is terrific, with the shops and cafes of Hollywood Rd so close. The apartment is actually in Tung Street, among a lane of old wares stalls. Very colourful indeed. MTR station is only a 10 minute walk.
We love this apartment and would book it immediately if returning to Hong Kong.
It was such a pleasure having you stay with us Kevin; we so enjoyed hosting you at our flat. You're just a fantastic guest! Thank you for choosing us; we're so lucky.
Yes, there are steps there; but you have to admit, it really is an easy walk up. There are large platform breaks all the way up. Not difficult and quite fun and unique. I love this flat of mine.

I was born in California and raised in Hong Kong. Went to college in the states and returned to Hong Kong a few years ago. I absolutely love travelling around the region but Hong Kong has always welcomed me home and I look forward to showing off my home town and sharing all the little insights and local specialities with all my guests!
