This is a nicely renovated and fully furnished 2 bedroom flat which easily fits 4 - 5 persons. It comes with TV, DVD, broadband, wifi towels, linen, hair dryer, iron, kitchen and more. There are two large double beds and a lovely double pull out sofa bed in the sitting room. This is a Chinese style quick walkup flat in the heart of Sheung Wan with a lovely Hollywood Road Park view which is directly behind the building. This is a fabulous tourist area with a lot of local history and is where the British took over Hong Kong in the early years.
The location is great because there is public transport and taxi all over. Taxi, trams, buses, and the metro is only a few minutes away.
There are shops, banks, art galleries, antique shops, bars and great restaurants within walking distance and Soho is just up the street from us. There are temples all around the area and the most famous one is the Man Mo Temple just a few minutes from the flat.
It’s a great location and the flats are very nice. All of our guests like staying with us and many guests return on a regular basis. We recently had a new light system installed in the outside staircase, so the lighting is great now.
Check Out Time is: 11 a.m. as we do cleaning and prepare for the next guests once you leave the flat.

Check out is SUPER SIMPLE, just leave the keys on the table inside the apartment, close the door behind you and we will be by shortly after 11:00am to clean up the apartment. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
No Smoking in the apartment Please.
Please help us save the environment by turning off electrical appliances when leaving the apartment or not using them.
Water heater needs to be turned off when not using. If it breaks due to prolonged time left on, you will not have any hot water for your stay and will be subject to expensive repair charges.
Check out time is STRICT at 11:00am. NO EXCEPTIONS or you will be charged for an extra full day.
Please pardon the inconvenience as I need to prepare the flat and change the sheets and towels for the next guest as I promise a noon check in time for them.
In the case that you have an evening departure flight:
Please note that you can check in your luggage at anytime during the same day as your flight at the Hong Kong Station Airport Express, which is only a 10 minute taxi or bus ride from the apartment. That way you would be free to explore the city on your last day, not having to worry about your luggage or rushing to the airport since you have already checked in, you will not have to be at the airport as early as everyone else.

Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip to Hong Kong due to the earthquake in Nepal. My friend stayed at Karen's place without me, and she has a very nice time. Sorry I could not make it, and thanks for making my friend feel welcome.
A great location - very easy to get around, near the bars and restaurants but also in a quiet enough location to sleep and not be disturbed. The apartment was very clean, and although not spacious, was still big enough for 4 adults to stay in comfortably. The arrangement of the shower being in the kitchen was unexpected, but in reality this didn't cause any problems, and importantly the toilet was in a separate room. All in all this was a convenient place for us to stay for a weekend break.
Appartement bien situé à 10minutes de la station Sheung Wan.
Tout confort, 2 chambres + un canapé lit dans le salon, suffisant pour 4 personnes, en revanche pour 6 personnes cela peut être petit notamment au niveau des rangements.
Serviettes fournies, 2 jeux de clés, WiFi, réfrigérateur et climatisation.
L'appartement se trouve au 4ème étage sans ascenseur, pas de soucis pour nous mais à prendre en compte pour une famille avec des enfants.
Nous avons été reçu par un ami de Karen qui nous a clairement expliqué le fonctionnement de l'appartement et la remise des clés.
Merci à Karen et son ami pour leur patience car nous avons eu quelques problème lors de notre arrivée sur Hong Kong et donc du retard pour le check-in.
Pour résumé, un très bon appartement pour séjourner quelques jours sur Hong Kong, vous serez à côté de tout ce que vous avez besoin (transports et magasins de proximité) et cela pour un très bon rapport qualité/prix. Dans une ville où le logement est cher c'est important.

Firstly, I should say it really a good location for us to travel around, near a metro station. And there is a new metro station nearby just open.
Secondly, I should say sorry to Karen's mother, since our flight delayed, we arrived there about 3:00 in the morning. And she came to help us check in.
Thirdly, there are many shops and cafes nearby. It's very convenient to buy some stuff and have meals.
One more thing is that there is no balcony at all. Since we saw there is a balcony, for this point, we felt been cheated.
Hi, thanks for staying with us! And thanks for the great comments about your stay.
As for the balcony, it is actually a rooftop. So you can lounge on the rooftop and enjoy company with friends and a good view. Sorry you thought it was a balcony, we wished you asked us so we could take you to the rooftop to enjoy.
Thanks again for staying with us! Karen
Good location. Friendly, polite and helpful host. Everything worked properly. Nice roof-top! Stay there!
Nice, basic flat in a great neighbourhood! Sheung Wan has lots of art galleries and wonderful cafes. I would stay here again.
Staying at the apartment with 4 people for 4 nights was tough. The apartment gets very little ventilation, and when it's humid in Hong Kong, this becomes a terrible experience! The shower is extremely temperamental (we only got icy cold or burning hot showers the entire time), the couches had a poor smell to them, and the white sheets were stained in some areas. However, I did not bring these concerns up to Karen, who seemed extremely helpful at/before check in (and probably would have done something to help us fix the issue!) I would say this apartment is a great place to stay (great location!) for a few nights with a small number of people, but having been at max capacity, the apartment was not the best experience.
