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.

Trams, buses, mini buses, taxis are all just a stone's throw away to get you all throughout Hong Kong.

Other Things to Note

Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.

  • Awesome location and great service!

    July 2014
  • Brendan's apartment is extremely convenient: walking distance to LKF, Central station, SOHO and various famous eateries in the vicinity. The only thing is you have to walk up a long flight of stairs up, which can be quite physically challenging. The apartment itself looks slightly smaller than advertised, but nevertheless rather comfortable. The only thing was that there is no daily cleaning for the apartment - for people who are used to hotel services it's gonna be quite difficult to adjust for the first few days, that you have to actually take responsibility of keeping the place clean.

  • Brendan is a very careful host. The flat is new clean well-groomed and is in the heart of Central between stores and clubs . I advise it to business or pleasure. Excellent

  • Brendan was a really helpful and professional host, convenient location - easy access by HK standards. Kindly accommodated us at very late notice.

  • Brendan's apartment was an excellent place to stay during my 3 night trip to HK. I was a bit delayed in arriving from the airport, but Brendan was there to meet me and give me some tips for the area. His brother also stopped by to introduce himself. The apartment itself was very clean and exactly as advertised. Great shower with hot water, air conditioning and a bed and tv. Great for one person or a couple. Also a cool rooftop with great views. The apt is a 2 minute walk to LKF and another 5 or so to the Soho area. The central MTR is a quick 5-7 min walk. Great location. Will definitely use this place again when I am back in HK.

    May 2014
  • The apt location is one of the best you can find in Hong Kong, right on top of the LKF many restaurant options and close to subway.

    Alright design and okey cleanness. One of the towel has black marks all over. The host was helpful at arrival, but didn't reply msg once check-in. Good location after all, but that's about it.

  • Brendan was a great host. He gave me detailed instructions on how to meet him and the communication was spot on. The apartment was very bright and perfect for 1-2 people. I really enjoyed the nice quiet surroundings yet still being just 30 seconds away from exciting LKF. The rooftop was also amazing! Highly recommended.

  • We had a wonderful and pleasant stay at Brendan's studio apartment. Everything was easy, quick and responsive. There will be Brendan's representatives to welcome you at the building and guide you through the necessary components such as wifi connection and rooftop access. Having a security guard in the building also made us felt safe. He was really friendly with morning greetings, shorts chats and introduced us some local delights.

    The room was just the right size for 2 people. Nicely equipped with cooking utensils, small fridge, hair dryer and good air-con. Rooftop access was one of the best highlights where you can chill and enjoy the breeze. The location was awesome, just barely 3 minutes walk to Lan Kwai Fang (LKF), must-go nightlife location in Hong Kong if you enjoy partying and booze. Getting to Central Station was even more convenient, like 5-10 minutes away. Banks are also available nearby if you need to change more money. I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends and family.

  • Brendan was a wonderful host, very responsive and confirmed my request within a couple of hours. The location of the listing was central and right where Lan Kwai Fong is near to all the nice restaurant and bars. I would recommend this place for leisure and business travellers alike. Thanks!

  • Brendan's little studio flat in Central is a very convenient location for everything, especially if you are in the partying mood and had one too many to drink around Lan Kwai Fong. Check-in was easy and took very little time. Although the studio was a bit small, it was clean and well lighted with plenty of windows for fresh air to flow in. One draw back is there is no air conditioning, and I can imagine the hot summer in Hong Kong could get a bit warm without one. However, it was perfect in March. One of the best parts of the stay was the very friendly older Chinese gentleman who works at the reception desk in the building. He was helpful when I needed to find a dry cleaner and always greeted me with a smile. I would definitely stay there again.

    Response from Brendan:

    I am very puzzled about the comment about the lack of an air conditioner. There absolutely is one in the flat, a very large, quiet a/c keeps the room cool for all guests. I am not sure how this was missed.
