The building belong to studiostudio, one of four properties. The one I stayed in was in Sheung Wan, a decent place for what you pay. The building is located pretty close to all of the best that Sheung Wan has to offer, which is mainly food! Lots and lots of food! There is also a bubble tea place right around the corner.
There are two rooms per floor, and the rooms are subdivided with a wooden wall. Which means you can hear that someone is in the room, but not necessarily make out what they are saying unless it's louder than your average TV volume. Another con is that there are not enough wall plugs, although there was an extension cord in my room.
The room does not come with toilet paper, or towels, but you can get both of those across the street at the Japan Home Centre(日本城).
This person is a lier. He gave me a much older and smaller room than the one he posted on the website. When I asked him to switch my room I booked back, he forced me to pay 30% more of the price he offered online. I tried to argue with him, but he even threatened me by forcing me to move out and so I had nowhere to live. Never rent this person's apartment again! And please, officer of Airbnb should pay attention to this person!!!
This apartment is a blatant case of false advertising - the apartment pictured is not reality. I am from Hong Kong and I am aware of space issues, however the photos on this advertisement are literally false.
Also, be aware that Simens (at least with this posting) is acting as an agent for a company called StudioStudio and you will not deal with him throughout your stay.
Simens was unresponsive to my concerns; including building safety as the fire escape is an unattached ladder from Level 1 to lobby, no windows that open in the apartment, no clean air for the air conditioner.
I am still learning how to be a good host. Of course, I won't be a host who will be praised as a Nobel Prize Winner.
Ben booked this place without sending me any message. Once he made reservation, he found that the exact address was Queen Road Central, not Weilington street where he worked. I thought it might be my fault to list a wrong address on the listing. However, the address is right. I tried to comfort him and told him that two streets are next to each other. By messaging each other for more than 100 times, he still required me to find him a place in Weilington. For God's sake, I have only places in Po Hing Fong street, Queen Road central and Tai Ping Shan street. How come I can find you a place in Weilington street!? Finally I agreed to cancel the reservation and I would pay the compensation which around 100USD. However, Ben did not agree to cancel he said he will stay. OK. PERFECT.
First day of his stay, he asked about the safety of the building. I tell him firefighter checked regularly. In Hong Kong, you don't rent out your place without fireproofing license. He began to challenge the fireproofing standard,which never happened for other guests before.
Second day, he complaint about the window. He said he could not open it because there is too much noise outside. Yes. He is right. Rushing hour in central don't offer you a quite place. I suggested him to move to another place. He refused.
Few days later, he complaint about the air conditioner. For all about these, I told to him and see if he would like to change to somewhere. We still have rooms available. But he refused. He insisted that someone has to fix it and pour out pure air.
20 days past, on a beautiful Sunday when you were sharing your time with your family. Ben messaged Albert, our housekeeper saying that he lost the key and need Albert to be there ASAP. Albert was also in holiday, but he still went there and helped. When Albert was on the way, Ben started to text me and all other colleagues in my company urging us to bring him a key. I was swimming in Stanley, and when I checked the message, Albert was there.
That's the story. I seldom wrote such thing. But Ben gave me and my company the worst experience for hosting.

About the Host, Simens
Most of the properties belong to my relatives. The rest belong to me.
The service is not as good as hotel service. The place is not as spacious as a 300CNY hotel in China. All places are rented for long term before by Hong Kong locals. Yes. We ourselves live in same kind of condition.
We are offering a place in convenient location and with very local Hong Kong lift style. Of course, comparing to hotel, our places are at least 50% cheaper in same size.
