Welcome to Hong Kong, a buzzing metropolis by day and a neon galaxy by night. There is so much to do and explore and no better place to do it from than Causeway Bay.
It is the perfect location for you no mater why you have come to Hong Kong.
Note that the nightly price shown up there doesn't include the one time cleaning fee (I care about cleanliness so I hire a pro) and Airbnb's booking fee. Input your dates and click the 'book it' button to get the total cost of your stay. Ask if you have any questions. :)
My apartment is cozy and well equipped with everything you'll need: soft sheets, fluffy towels, a mini kitchen, bathroom, TV, WiFi, guidebooks, and character. It is ideal for an individual or couple.
Smack in the middle of Hong Kong's shopping and eating centre, our apartment is a fantastic place from which to base yourself during your trip to Hong Kong.
My wife and I had a fun time preparing the apartment for your arrival and we have tried our best to anticipate what you will need during your trip. We are available to help you make the most of your stay!

free WiFi (super fast broadband network)
a quiet air conditioner
a washing machine (outdoor clothes drying rack)
In the Kitchenette you'll find:
a single burner induction stove
an electric kettle
coffees, teas, snacks and drinks
beer, wine and spirits
In the Bathroom you'll find:

Interaction with Guests
The studio space is private– everything in the pictures is yours and yours alone. :-)
I'm happy to give recommendations for places to visit and local restaurants.
Causeway Bay and Wanchai are the heart of Hong Kong's consumer culture. Every square inch is filled with shopping malls, department stores, boutiques, market stalls, hole in the wall cafés, international restaurants and banquet halls.
Within walking distance of the apartment, you'll find almost every type of cuisine on the planet as well as the HK must try's: dim sum, roast meats, noodles and congee, cha chan teng (a unique fusion of Chinese/Western food), and snacks and desserts.
If shopping is your thing, you'll find the whole range: From bargains and nicknacks at the Jardine's Crescent street market and Spring Garden Lane, to affordable youth fashion boutiques in Island Beverly Centre, to the tech heaven of the Wanchai Computer Centre, to mid-priced and luxury goods in SOGO and Hysan Place, to the up market fashions found in Lee Gardens, Times Square and Fashion Walk.
You are also right next to Happy Valley, where you can enjoy a beer and watch a horse race on most Wednesdays.
It couldn't be easier to get to the apartment from the airport. The A11 bus picks you up at the airport and drops you off just downstairs from the apartment, and gives you great views of the city as you come into town. You can also get to the apartment by Airport Express (high speed train) and taxi.
The apartment is less than 100m from Causeway Bay MTR station (our subway system) and is serviced by Hong Kong's classic tramways and many bus lines. The famous Star Ferry is also just a short walk away.
Other Things to Note
Check in is after 2pm and check out is before 12 noon. I'm happy to accommodate early check in and late check out as long as I don't have guests arriving/departing on the same days.
Have fun, explore the city, eat shop and live life to the fullest.
You are free to use anything in the apartment, please make (email hidden) is an incredibly dense city, please remember the neighbors and don't be too noisy at night.
Absolutely no smoking in the apartment.
Try not to forget anything when you leave.
Alex sent me very clear and thorough instructions. When I had some trouble getting into the apartment, he was very quick and responsive. The building itself was kind of jenky (sort of expected in Asia) but the studio was very clean and organized. I had a very easy and pleasant stay. Despite the heat, the studio was quite cool that I didn't need to turn on the AC. It was very convenient to all the bus lines and the Causeway bay station. I recommend it for short stay!
I had rather complicated arrival but Alex was very accommodating. Super great location, the room is prepared well and was easy to check in. Alex gave a very comprehensive directions and tips of places to eat. Was ready to assist us more. We appreciate the sodas and complimentary wines, it was a pity we did not get to have them due to our crazy schedule. We expected the place could be a bit small and noisy due to the perfect center location, for enjoying Hongkong hip life definitely it is the perfect place to stay. We only had a problem with the internet, Alex responded very quickly. Great place.
Everything was as expected. The apartment was very clean and well equipped despite its small size. Some more TV channels would have been better but the strong internet connection made up for it. Location was excellent and public transport was easily accessible. The common entrance looked a bit shabby but inside the apartment is nice. We did not meet Alex however he replied to our messages. I would definitely stay there again.
Alex responded really quick and he gave me clear instructions and directions to the apartment. It is easy to find and is near many eating places and shopping area. It is also very near the MTR.
The apartment is clean and has towels, tea, washing machine etc and look like it does in the photos. I had a great stay overall and would recommend this apartment to others.
Alex was a great host, and I had a very enjoyable stay at his Wan Chai studio. Alex was responsive and helpful, even providing some great local restaurant recommendations. The location is ideal - convenient to Causeway Bay and multiple modes of transportation. The apartment building looks a bit older when you first enter, but Alex's studio has been rennovated and really is quite modern. The complimentary wine and tea were a great touch.
We spent three nights at short notice and found the property as described and with no surprises. It was well located for eating, sightseeing and transport and we felt it allowed us to experience the real Hong Kong.
Alex was unable to meet us but his advice and directions were good and the studio was well appointed and in good order.
Apartment was great! Host was great! Alex made such a difference, always very responsive and helpful. Really appreciated all the nice touches he put in, toiletries, stocked fridge, fresh towels! Nice! Would definitely recommend!

I'm from North Carolina, but I've lived in Hong Kong for 11 years.
I love living in and travelling across Asia. You'll usually see me with camera in hand trying to blend in with the local culture, which is difficult for a tall white guy.
But, whether I'm treking across a desert or window shopping on high streets, I always love to meet other like minded free spirits.
My wife and I have really enjoyed preparing our place to be ready for guests. We hope you enjoy it. Please let me know if there is anything special I can prepare for your trip. :-)
As a host, I'll try my best to point out the colorful local scene, and as a guest, I'll I try to leave nothing but good memories.
