I enjoyed my stay at TAO's apartment. It was clean, just as pictured, and conveniently located. There were a number of restaurants just outside the building and subway and buses were within short walking distance.
TAO was also great about giving directions from the airport and about responding to any requests I had. If you're planning a visit to HK, I recommend TAO's place.
Tao's flat was a very good value for the city and a perfect place to stay in Hong Kong. Tao was very nice and attentive, what a nice person! I loved the flat location, this absolutely feels like what I remember Hong Kong as, especially before all the tourists and expats taking over the city. It was an old Hong Kong for sure! I loved all the food choices around there and hoe friendly all the locals were. All the food was real Cantonese cooking- just like how grandparents would make them. I was happy with how clean the flat was too. Thanks again!
Facile accoglienza. Comunicazione sempre puntuale gentile e attenta. Ringrazio ancora TAO per un self check in anticipato. Quartiere emergente, mercati e supermercati, locali per bere una birra proprio sotto casa, tra un mese ci sarà la nuova stazione della metro e sarà ancora più comodo. Strade in salita, c'è una scala mobile per raggiungere High street da Queen's road forse un po' impegnativo per persone anziane. Appartamento davvero piccolo, ma immagino che sia lo standard per quel prezzo a Hong Kong. Tutto sommato esperienza positiva.
ENGLISH TRANSLATION:Easy reception. Communication always polite and attentive. Thank you again TAO for a self check in early. Emerging neighborhood, markets and supermarkets, local for a beer just below the house, in a month there will be a new metro station and will be even more comfortable. Roads uphill, there is an escalator to reach the High Street from Queen's Road perhaps a bit 'challenging for older people. Apartment really small, but I guess that is the standard for that price in Hong Kong. All in all a positive experience.
TAO's RESPONSE: Grazie per una revisione più che positiva. Siamo lieti di sapere che e rimasto soddisfatto nel complesso con il vostro soggiorno e per il check-in anticipato. Sì, ha ragione, Hong Kong ha i prezzi più alti nel settore immobiliare di tutto il mondo e questo prezzo che ha pagato per questa proprietà è davvero un low budget in considerazione alla sua dimensione, ubicazione e servizi. Abbiamo anche notato le altre osservazioni e agiremo su di loro.
ENGLISH TRANSLATION:Thank you for a most positive review. We are happy to know that you are pleased overall with your stay & your early check in. Yes, you are correct, Hongkong has the most expensive prices for real estate in the world & this price you had paid for this property is really on the low budget side considering it's size, location & amenities. We had also noted your other observations & had acted on them as we speak.
We stayed in Hong Kong for 5 nights, and had a wonderful stay in Sheung Wan!
I booked several months prior and had several email exchanges with TAO Limited and they were extremly helpful in answering all my questions and left very detailed directions for finding the apartment, and other important info. It was indeed very easy to find and the apart is located in a very bustling and colourful neighbourhood!
The building guardians are always present at the entrance and are very pleasant.
The apartment was exactly as listed and even better in person! There was cold water in the fridge and all the amenities for cooking meals, if so desired, along with a fridge, microwave and stove top.
I have to say that the bed was THE MOST comfortable bed I have slept in, even better then my own at home, so we slept very well!
The apartment was impeccably clean and the bathroom was spotless!
It got a bit chilly at night, and thankfully, there were two space heaters in the armoire, which was realllly appreciated!
The apartment itself is tastefully decorated and modern, very cute and cozy! I really liked it a lot! I wouldn't mind living here, myself! I felt very 'at home.'
I really liked the neighbourhood, too. It is very central and we love walking so even walking to and from Central Station, Soho, and into the main section of town is not far!
Taxis are very cheap, numerous and accessible for those who don't like to walk long distances. Plus, there are buses, tramways and the metro so you don't have to worry about getting around, if you don't want to go by foot! Sooo many interesting things to see all around Sheung Wan and the surrounding neighbourhoods so get out and walk! I highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Hong Kong and seriously, I preferred the Island to the main side, the island side was definitely more interesting and gave you the real feel of being in Hong Kong rather than in a large European country (which I felt like on the other side). You really cannot go wrong staying here and it was really a great stay! Thank you Tao Limited!
We really loved the apartment!
The experience with Tao was wonderful.
I nice, clean apartment right on the "new Soho" area of Hong Kong Island. Thanks for everything - it was a perfect experience.
we had a warm welcome .the apartment is in a special location which has everything near ,bars, pizza,western super market,local market and restaurants.the apartment was good and had everything we needed,it was clean and very well decorated and in good taste and condition.the bed pillows and the light weight duvet was warm very comfortable after long day touring,my wife liked it the most.
the host was very helpful and answers fast to everything we just needed.we liked the way she was ready to help.the wi-fi was excellent.the host description was accurate .if we come, we will be back over here for sure.
Good location, clean and welcoming, had everything I needed for my stay. The bed was very comfortable with good quality duvet, pillows etc, just what you need after a hard day pounding the streets of HK. The kitchen had all that basics if you wanted to eat at the apartment. Responses to the few emails I sent on various matters were answered with minutes. Wi fi was quick and free. In short, if I was to go back to HK again in the future I would see if this apartment was available.
