The Space

In the heart of Central, a minute walk down to Lan Kwai Fong, world famous for all kinds of restaurants and and bars. A few more steps and you down on Queen's Road Central where high fashion and local shops line the main and back roads.
Transport-wise, the Central MTR station is 3 minutes walk down, as are the trams, buses and everything else, you will never want for more transport options.
The rooftop garden is a fantastic place to spend some down time after a long day in the city and is shared only amongst my other guests in the building so it's a great place to compare shopping and sightseeing notes.
I look forward to your arrival in Hong Kong, and will ensure you have a wonderful stay.

  • Superb location, the best in HK in my view, a few minutes walk to the city, the restaurant areas, all the coffee shops, and bars, and all the walking trails on HK island. The flat is fairly basic, quite new, and clean and functional, and very quiet. There is a great roof terrace also for exclusive use.I understand the hosts own a number of flats in the building so everything is very easy. I enjoyed staying here.
    I had no problems with anything and for the price is good value.
    As others have said, it is on a hill, and for those older or with heavy luggage it could be a challenge. The hosts went out of their way to let me check in early as I had an early arrival.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Brendan's place. It was exactly as pictured and very very clean. It's very close to the Lan Kwai Fong and walking distance to Central MTR and star ferry.

    As others have stated already, the walk to the apartment is all uphill so people with lots of luggage should probably take a taxi.

    Checking in was also very easy as I was met in front of the apartment and was shown around.

  • Brendan's place was great. Perfect location if you want to be close to LKF bars/soho restaurants.
    Apartment itself is basic but has everything you need. And arrangements were all very simple. Would stay here again.

  • Brendan's apartment is soooo clean!!! Towels, shampoo, soap are all provided and toilet is squeaky clean... I can be so picky with where I stay on vacations and I couldn't have picked a better place.
    Walking distance to lots of food, cafes, bars at Lan Kwai Fong but still peaceful. Walking distance to central mtr and star ferry and lots of transport options. We even walked to the peak tram, with our 18 month old in the stroller!! Though it can get a lil difficult for elders or people with mobility issues as the apartment is situated along a steep road.
    Had no problems with the hot water as what previous reviewers have feedback on. And checking in & out is a breeze.. no hassle.
    All in all we loved it there.

  • This apartment was perfect! It's located just off the crazy party area of the city but you can't hear all the commotion while in the apartment. Tons of cool places to shop, eat and drink within walking distance and it's super safe around there. Even late at night we didn't see any shadiness going on. The shower has great water pressure, so relaxing after a full day of walking on steep hills. And even though the water heater is small and I did run out of hot water once (I take long showers), the cool water was heaven-sent. Trust me, HK can get pretty hot and sticky and you won't want a hot shower anyway - at least in spring-summer. The apartment has everything you need (electric kettle, tea, hair dryer, iron, towels, wifi, big walk-in closet, A/C, etc.). I would recommend it to anyone coming to HK. It fits no more than 2 people as it's pretty small - we still had lots of space for luggage and shopping bags, though. Something to keep in mind though, it's a pain to explain where you're going to taxi drivers. Make sure you pinpoint the location on a Chinese map or call Brendan so that he can give directions to the driver in Chinese. And you'll want to take a cab to the place, at least from HK station.

  • Very good, clean accommodation, the hosts were graceful enough to let us in early too, which helped a lot with our luggage. Full of good information and recommendations and sorted the bed problem out immediately... (there was no extra sleeper and I was not about to cuddle up next to my business partner).
    All in all I would rate this excellent and would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Hong Kong, great location if you like the nightlife too. I left my headphones in the flat on leaving and they are sending them back to me in UK... Wonderful Service! Thank you Brendan for a lovely stay! Hope to be back soon

  • Loved it here! The room was nice, clean and bright. The bed and pillows were comfortable. It fit two people very nicely, and the location is great. One thing I want to point out is that this apt is on a hill so it might be a problem for those who have some mobility issues. However, I had no problems with it and it was a good exercise considering all the food I ate on my trip!

  • We had a great stay in the Glenealy apartment. Fab location and very helpful concierge. Brendan was quick to respond to any emails and we really appreciated all of his info pre-arrival. Would definitely recommend staying here.

  • This apartment was fantastic. We loved staying here. It was clean , filled with light during the day, and the bathroom was big , which is hard to find in HK . the location is amazing, you can t be more central than in this place. Everything is just minutes away, retaurants, bars, shopping, mtr....all in front of your doorstep, just perfect. The shared rooftop is wonderful to have , enjoy a relaxing day, or do laundry (there is laundry and dryer )and chill in the sun with a drink.
    We had once a problem withe internet, Brendan was at the apartment within minutes to fix it, Great service Thank you.
    we definitely will rebook with Brendan. :-)

  • The apartment is conveniently located near Hongkong station, very clean and quiet. The host is friendly, helpful and cares what you need to make your stay comfortable. I will recommend this place to my friends visiting HK in the future.
