About This Listing
Two bed-room unit. Neighborhood with the best cafes, bars and art galleries in town.
If you're in Hong Kong for a few days, and are looking for something both quiet and convenient, do check out my apartment. It's a 2-bedroom unit.
That's 540 sq ft, with a decent sized living room; a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed; and a smaller bedroom that I've converted into a study. Though two guests are ideal, the apartment can accommodate a third in the living room. There's a decent kitchen with the usual amenities, as well as a bathroom. Wi-fi is available. The building has a doorman.
The apartment is on the 24th floor, with a commanding view of Hollywood Road. The building is just above Hollywood Road in Sheung Wan, near the historic Man Mo Temple. There's a bus stop right below, plus it's a 5-min walk from the MTR. This is also the new hip part of the town, with great cafes, bars and art galleries.
The place is also a 5-min walk from the bars and restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong, close enough to hop over, but far enough to ensure you won't be kept up at night with nightclub music or taxi horns. You'll have a fun yet restful stay.
The building has a doorman. Guests will have access to hot running water, WiFi, as well as the contents of the fridge/larder.
The area around Square Street and Tai Ping Shan Road is the new hip part of town. There are great cafes (you have to try brunch and tea at Teakha), up-and-coming art galleries and just a cool laid-back vibe. It's chic, but not noisy or bustling like Central.
The MTR (subway) is just a seven-minute walk from the apartment. There's a bus stop a minute away.
I don't have too many rules, besides the fact that I'd appreciate you leave things in as much order as you found it in. Please toss the sheets and towels you use (I promise to provide fresh ones) in the blue laundry hamper in the study.
I'll send over Wi-fi and other details separately.
We stayed in Abheeks apartment for 10 days and really enjoyed the close location to central Hong Kong which can be reached within a couple of minutes food walk. Around you will also find lots of nice cafés and restaurants. The place itself is quite small, smaller than the photos would actually suggest. However because it is not directly located near a bigger street and because the flat is quite high above the ground it is pretty quiet inside. There is everything inside that is needed for a pleasant stay and Abheek was very helpful with any questions we had. He also gave us some ideas where to find what in the neighbourhood.
The house is very safe with code locked door and guards in the entrance hall.
We had a positive experience at Abheek's place. Abheek has been a great host communicated well and was very arranging for our trip prior and during. The place is exactly like on the photos, descent size for Hong Kong and with all the things you need. Good location, close to a lot of restaurants and bars. Strongly recommend.
Easy to navigate location, reliable WiFi, large bed comfortable bed (against the usual firm smaller beds that plague Asia venues). The laundry across the street was super convenient. Really enjoyed the slow migration into a quiet neighborhood, slightly tourist, to finally business/shopping area walk down from Central to the ferry terminal. Got a tad told in the winter season, the available heater quickly fixed this up.
The apartment was in the perfect location on Hong Kong Island. There were many restaurants, bars, shopping and temple's in close proximity but you are not in the middle of all the action. It was quiet and you felt safe because there is a doorman and you need a code to get in the building. Abheek also gave us some great suggestions on where to eat and what was nearby. Overall it was a great experience and we would love to stay again!
