The Sheung Wan neighbourhood is ever changing and a fantastic mix of "old' and "new" Hong Kong. This apartment is located in the heart of Hong Kong's commercial, cultural and shopping districts and within short walking distance to the subway and HK Macau Ferry Pier. A few minutes walk away from the harbour front and the fantastic Sun Yat Sun Memorial Park and Public swimming pool over look the world famous Victoria Harbor.
Buses, Trams, Minibuses and taxis all run right out side the building all conveniently taking you through Central and all other parts of Hong Kong like Causewaybay, Wan Chai, the exhibition center and beyond.
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.
This is a Strictly NON SMOKING Flat.
UPON ARRIVAL AT PROPERTY, ALL GUESTS MUST WAIT FOR ME AT THE FRONT GATE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. BUILDING RESIDENTS WILL COMPLAIN TO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT IF THE LOBBY AREA INSIDE BUILDING IS BLOCKED. THANKS FOR YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY.
Check in time is AFTER 12:30 pm. Make sure to contact us by phone at least 30 minutes prior to arrival such that we can meet you at the flat to hand you the keys and acquaint you to the surroundings. As this is a family business, please try your best to arrive at the apartment as early as possible. After 11:30pm as transport to the apartment is limited for us, we have to charge HKD150 to cover our taxi transport cost to and from the apartment. We are generally exhausted at the end of the day and we really would rather you arrive early and not have to charge this.
Guests must wait for us OUTSIDE the building upon arrival and not enter the building without us as this causes unnecessary misunderstandings with the property management and residents of the buildings.
Check out time is STRICT at 11:00 am. NO EXCEPTIONS or you will be charged for an extra full day. Our cleaning crew will arrive at 11:00 am to service the flat for the next guest, thanks for your cooperation.
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.
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 5 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.
All airlines flying from Hong Kong airport offer In Town check in, EXCEPT the following:
Jetstar Asia Airlines
Great Location! Host was timely and accommodating. Check in was smooth as well.
Good accommodation. Fast check-in. Clean room. Good communication with owner. Highly recommended
Brendan was very thorough with his information prior to my arrival. He emailed me very useful tips such as which local HK sim card to purchase, where to buy an Octopus card (transport card), etc.
I arrived in the evening and was greeted by one of his employers, Joelle, who let me into the apartment.
The building entrance is easy to miss- it's a tiny entranceway squeezed in between two shops along the pathway. At first this shocked me, as I felt as though without a building lobby it might not be safe, however I soon came to realise that this is normal in HK. There are stairs from the entrance up to the level where the lifts are, so be wary of this if you have any mobility issues! The security guard that works 6am-6pm, Chu, is a lovely older gentleman who will greet you and make you feel welcomed. He also takes a copy of your passport details for security reasons.
The apartment itself is quite basic (compared to hotel rooms), however is clean and comfortable. Two (very comfortable) double beds, a basic kitchenette, and a tiny bathroom make up the apartment. Again, I was really shocked at how small the bathroom was, but then became aware that this is a common thing in HK, where space is a luxury. We were only provided with 1.5 toilet rolls, so be sure to check before you head out so you can buy some more!
The apartment was fitted with a few cable tv channels, and free wifi, which was a luxury to have for keeping in touch with family and friends over the Christmas holidays. Little touches such as a hairdryer, adaptor plugs, and umbrellas were great to have! The kitchenette had a bar fridge, hot plate, kettle (that didn't work) and pots and pans to cook up basic meals if you were feeling like a night in :)
The apartment is conveniently positioned close to an MTR, which makes travelling around HK SUPER easy. There is also a Starbucks across the road if you are wanting a caffeine fix.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Brendan's apartment in Sheung Wan, and will definitely consider staying here again next time I visit the beautiful, vibrant city of Hong Kong.
숙소상태는 사진에서 보시는 바와 동일합니다. 홍콩에서 이만한 가격대로 이만한 크기의 방을 구하기란 쉽지 않습니다. 우선, 방이 넓어서 좋습니다. 캐리어를 펼쳐 놓기에도 문제 없고, 다양하게 공간을 활용할 수 있습니다. 또한, 부엌이 있어서 이른 아침이나 늦은 밤에 간단한 음식을 할 수 있어서 좋습니다. 멀티탭, 수건, 드라이기나 샴푸 라디에이터 등 구비되어 있는 물품이 많아서 이용하기 편리합니다.
위치는 아시다시피 이비스호텔 바로 맞은편이고, 집 앞에 바로 트램정거장이 있어 이동이 간편합니다.
호스트는 예약확정도 빠르게 해주었고, 질문에 대한 답변도 빨랐으며 친절했습니다. 도착한 날, 체크인하는데 꽤 기다려야 했지만 대신 나온 호스트의 어머니께서 상냥하게 설명해주어 괜찮았습니다.
홍콩에서 숙소 선택을 참 잘 한것 같다 생각하며 추천합니다.
The apartment is excatly like it pictured. Good location. Had some miscommuncation with the checkin so it took a bit to get that settle. Once checked in, everything was fine.

I was born in California and raised in Hong Kong. Went to college in the states and returned to Hong Kong a few years ago. I absolutely love travelling around the region but Hong Kong has always welcomed me home and I look forward to showing off my home town and sharing all the little insights and local specialities with all my guests!
