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.
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.
My mother stayed at Abheeks apartment for a few days. She told me that it is a nice flat in a real great part of the town.
The communication with Abheek was very friendly and the appointments worked well.
Nice apt, easy access and clear directions. Even made an egg sandwich for myself, thanks Abheek!
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!
Clean, tidy apartment close to everything and easy to find. Air conditioning works well (thank goodness), and there is plenty of room for a single or couple, in the context of tiny Hong Kong.
Second bedroom might suit a child, but it was really useful as a luggage/dressing room.
Check-in was a breeze, and Abheek sent several emails to ensure everything went smoothly. His recommendation for foot massage was spot on!
Would certainly stay here again.
Abheek gave us thorough instructions before our departure from Singapore & welcomed us at his place. Too bad we didn't get to hang out as he seems like a person who has quite a few interesting stories to share.
The only downside of this place is that it's so cozy and so well equipped with good books that it makes one want to stay at home.
Abheek's apartment is perfect for a short term or extended stay in Hong Kong. In my opinion this is one of the best areas to reside in HK - it's close to all the best offerings in town including bars, restaurants, cafes (the best bakery in HK is 100m away). Transportation couldn't be easier as well.
In terms of the apartment itself, it was clean and cosy. Abheek is very organised and had everything prepared for me, even though the booking was extremely late notice (a matter of hours). He was also very accommodating when my flight was delayed by 7 hours after checkout. I would highly recommend Abheek's apartment to anyone traveling to HK.
Although I did not get the chance to meet Abheek living in his home for 5 nights was a real joy. The apartment itself is very central and near to a variety of nightlife, cafes, and restaurants. But it's just far away enough so that sleeping at night is very quiet. Abheek was very accommodating and always responded to my messages quickly. I would recommend others to stay here as well!
Abheek is very organized and everything was hassle free. His apartment is cozy and clean, with everything you'll need: Wifi, cable tv, full size fridge and full size shower. Very private building and unit. Windows everywhere make it feel much larger than it is. Highly recommend staying here!
Abheek's apartment is brilliantly located and a great place to base yourself while in HK. On top of that, Abheek is a wonderful host. Excellent and clear communication, detailed instructions, made checking in very easy (despite being away when I arrived) and a pleasure to deal with.
