Located steps from Hollywood road, with new eateries, art galleries and trendy bars rejuvenating this traditional neighbourhood 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 and a heater. 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 4rd 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:

A great little appartment in the heart of Sheung Wan with easy access to the MTR and trams. GReat spot, and I love this colourful part of HK. Nice and peaceful too ensuring a good night's sleep. Good strong shower. :o) Thanks for having me to stay.
Had a great stay and highly recommend. They run their properties very professionally, so even if there are issues they will be handled. I was able to comfortably stay in this apartment with another person and we never felt cramped.
Brendan Kam's apartment was very nice and well equipped for our stay. The location is excellent and would recommend anyone keen on exploring the Central area and doing day trips to Macau to stay in this place. In just a 10 minute walk, you will be able to find many famous restaurants.
The only downsides about this place would be the four flights of stairs which could be quite tiring if you forget something and the lack of a better water heater. Despite leaving the heater on for a while, we still had to shower in cold water.
Brendan was very helpful and sent us a list of things to do during our stay. His staff met us at the apartment venue which was slightly puzzling as we were not expecting this. We had spoken to Brendan's mother when we called him upon landing. Nonethless, his staff was very informative and helpful.
All in all, it was a very pleasant stay and readily recommend his apartment to anyone interested in visiting Hong Kong.
COSY! A great little space in the heart of Central in HK. A bit cramped, but the studio has everything you need--fans, A/C, TV, small fridge, all stocked up with towels and so on. Logistical problem: if you have luggage, it has to go down a set of stairs on street to get to building entrance, then up three flights of stairs to apartment. Nice rooftop deck one flight up from apartment. Best thing is the location: studio is in the centre of Hollywood antique and art trade, and fairly close to MRT station. In the alley out the door are small shops selling all kinds of interesting mementoes from HK. A lot lies within walking distance. Enjoyed my stay here!
Excellent host! The location is very convenient with the MTR being just a few mins walk away along the busy main roads :) but the best thing lies with the room itself.. you would feel right at home in this cozy abode!
Check in was straightforward and simple. Brendan is a very responsive host and responded immediately to arrange check-in after the booking. Location is great and the studio is very clean and well furnished. As others have mentioned, guests with large bags may find the stair troublesome but i had no problems with them.
The experience communicating with Brendan was speedy & clear. The accommodation was exactly how it looked like in the photos and the rooftop was our favourite place as we met other travelers & had good conversations. The location is great and after the first day my husband & I walked to most of the places we wanted to visit enjoying the great weather & soaking in the ambience. We even walked with our luggages to the hong kong station to take the train to the airport. Thanks for the wonderful cozy apartment & place to rest each night we were in HK!

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!
