Other Things to Note

Most commonly asked questions:
- Is it secured?
Yes, the place is very secured with digital lock. Previous guests cannot replicate keys and hence you can feel highly secured. Surrounded by famous private schools and police station just 2 traffic lights away. You cant get more secure than this.

- Is it quiet?
Everyone is different to their acceptance to noise. FYI, there will be noise during working hours since this is Hong Kong. But after hours (after 6pm and public holiday), we are very sure that you wont hear much, especially we have installed double glazed windows in this apartment. You wont find much double glazed windows installed in other airbnb flats.

Hair dryer?
- yes, there is a hair dryer in the flat.

Your visitors?
- All visitors or additional guests need to be discussed prior to the reservation starting or upon approval of the host. It's very awkward to find the people we met during check-in is different to the people we saw during the stay/check-out. We appreciate true and fair transaction. Please read house rules.

  • I loved the coziness there most of all. i had a great sleep. In addition, I could enjoy the great local food around the place.

    Also I could feel that Martin was taking care of every details for my convenience.

    Thanks a lot for great experience!

    Response from M&M:

    Thank you Patrick for the review. It's a great feeling to receive feedback again from staff who worked with airbnb. =)

  • M&M were extremely courteous and thoughtful hosts. Without any prompting, they went out of their way to provide helpful tips about getting around the city and accommodated our schedule personally. The apartment is in the up and coming Sai Ying Pun neighborhood, walking distance to Sheung Wan.

  • We spent 4 nights in the flat and it was a very pleasant experience. While the apartment is not very big, it's very cozy and clean. The equipment and the furniture are very new and with great quality. We especially like the terrace as it provides a romantic atmosphere when all the lights are on. We brought wine and enjoyed it with candles - it's superb. We love the vicinity and there are many nice restaurants and bars. We highly recommend the place!

  • May is very helpful and met us at the apartment downstair upon our arrival and brief us how to use the electronic door, tv and switches in the apartment. She answer our queries during our stay thru whatsapp. The place is newly renovated and the bed is very comfortable. I have a good night sleep throughout the stay. The balcony is very clean and I like it. The location of the apartment is on top of some slop. Some climbing required. Otherwise, suggest to take bus no. 970 to go tsim sha tsui and jordan mtr and its cheaper than to take taxi. Even though there is a tv but not much channel for selection. Either we have to pay or it prompt us to upgrade the tv box.

  • Martin & May were excellent hosts. From communication, check in, and even checking up on me during the stay- it was truly a 5 star experience. The flat itself is in an older walk up building however the condition of the flat was amazing. Honestly one of the best stays I have experienced here in Asia! I highly recommend M&M in Hong Kong. The neighbourhood is up and coming with so many eating/brunch options.. laundry is nearby and transportation is quite convenient. Thank you for hosting, M&M! I will be back!

  • If your looking (email hidden) location, walking distance to Central, and beyond then this would suit you ! The location has many restaurants in the area, catering to all tastes and budgets. Coffee shops, and Bakery. A short walk uphill or alternatively, take the new escalator, brings you to Conduit Road, again a quick trip into Soho, Boho.. Its nice to see the a more local scene, people shopping at the market, daily life all around you. Not the sanitised Central, with the Brands and Luxury stores ! This is HK and I hope the area can be saved from the mass developments !

    The apartment was very clean, & well presented, Martin had left wine glasses chilling in the fridge for us ! ( thank you ) Access was easy, we were met exactly where we were staying, and kindly had two access keys.

  • The flat was a cozy bolthole in a convenient location. Martin was absolutely fantastic in responding to any queries or concerns and went well beyond the expected to make sure my father was comfortable. Certainly recommend this for a single traveller or a couple who don't mind close quarters.

  • Had an absolutely fantastic experience staying here! The flat itself is new and modern and meticulously clean. It felt like moving into a brand new flat. Martin and Mary made the entire experience incredible easy. They were in touch before I arrived with excellent directions. Mary met me in front of the building and helped me get settled in. They were also friendly and responsive throughout my stay. Could not be more pleased with the entire experience!

  • This was my first Airbnb experience and i couldn't have asked for a better host than Martin. The apartment was really easy to find and is located in an up-and-coming neighbourhood on Hong Kong island.

    Martin was very helpful in preparing for my stay before my arrival, with useful tips and advice on getting from the airport to his apartment.

    During my stay, Martin and his assistant, May were always contactable if i needed anything. Communication was effortless through Whatsapp and phone calls. I was very thankful they arranged for cleaning service twice during my 11-day stay. The apartment was modern and well-equipped with shower necessities (shower foam, shampoo, conditioner). A nice touch were the complimentary Tsing Tao beer!

    I highly recommend Martin's apartment for anyone travelling to Hong Kong and would hoping to experience a unique part of the city. Thanks Martin and May!

  • Martin is a brilliant host. Before the trip he got in touch with me on whatsapp and would always respond immediately to any query I had.

    The place itself is even better than what it looks like in the pictures. It's extremely cozy and comfortable. The lighting is beautifully done as is the flooring; the bed is very comfortable as well. No problems with the WiFi at all or the TV either.

    The bathroom is well-sized and has a lovely shower (enough hot water) with basic toiletries provided. Plates, mugs, kettle (most useful!), sugar, water are also available.

    I don't remember this being mentioned very much (I suppose because it's so cold!), but there's a lovely spacious, well-lit balcony with a table/chairs.

    I generally took taxis which were easily available and for trips to IFC mall, central, lkf, soho etc. i didn't pay more than $25 and it took 5-10 mins. There's a 7/11 just outside the apartment and I think the 2nd parallel street below (Third Street?) has lovely restaurants and bars.

    The apartment has a fancy lock system with a card as well as a locked gate below the stairs; also it's on the first floor so you don't have to worry about carrying luggage!

    I hope I haven't missed much but all in all, this was a most pleasant experience. The place is a gem and Martin is a perfect host. Thank you very much for your hospitality.
