A lovely and quiet 2-bedroom flat in the heart of Central / Sheung Wan, easy walking access to SOHO, Macau Ferry, IFC, Airport Express Train in Central and all the sights of HK island. From 32nd floor it is a quiet and calming experience of downtown
**We have recently opened up the 2nd bedroom and installed a big new bed, Queen size pillow-top brand new mattress, which his excellent for anyone 6' and taller. It looks out over IFC, downtown and a bit of harbour and TST**
Located near Western Market in downtown Sheung Wan, here You have a dynamic view of the western Victoria Harbour and uniquely quiet but accessible location. You can watch the traffic of ferryboats, cruise ships and fishing boats as well as the city lights of IFC, classic HK tram street Des Voeux Road and a slice of the TST skyline.
Our building is literally a 5 minute walk door to door from the Macau Ferry entrance which means you can take a day or evening trip to Macau and return home after a few hours with no stress and no complicated transfers. We are 5 min from the Sheung Wan MTR station at the end of the Island Line. Another nice option is the HK tram (also known as the 'ding-ding') which is slower but good for sightseeing and romantic at night time. The Macau Ferry bus terminus also located next door is where you can pick up buses to all the major destinations in Hong Kong.
In addition the flat is an easy 10 minute walk along the water to all of the ferries to outlying islands like Lantau, Lamma and Cheung Chau as well as the Star Ferry over to Kowloon. Walking 5 minutes away from the water you are in the antique and art gallery district of Upper Lascar Row and lower Hollywood Rd, Sheung Wan.
The flat accommodates up to 5-6 people with 2 queen size beds in each of two bedrooms as well as a double-size pull-out bed in the living room looking out at the water. All three are very comfortable and we also have black-out curtains in the living room.
Please note - in general flats in Hong Kong are quite a bit smaller than in US/Australia or Europe, or indeed in other parts of the world. This flat is very comfortable but you should not expect huge kitchen, walk in closet or excess space in the bedrooms. You will not find any larger spaces in this district unless you pay much more for it.
You will have all the towels and linens you need as well as soaps but please bring your own shampoo and other personal products. The shower has a sliding door and a bathtub and enough room for western-size people so no need to worry about cramped toilet experiences. There is no TV but we have a good sound system with a cable for your ipad, ipod or laptop and fast WIFI internet. We have air conditioners in each room, as well as a standing rotating fan which is a good option with big open windows.
The flat is very close to the Airport Express and in fact it is an easy walk if you don't have too much luggage. I will usually be traveling out of Hong Kong in the region, but will be available on my local HK phone number and also have a local contact person if you need any help. The flat will be cleaned before and after your stay.
2 Bedrooms each with a Queen size bed. The large living room also has a very comfortable Double bed which pulls out from the sofa, and the room is also equipped with blackout curtains.
I am easy to reach by phone, sms or email at all times. But while you are staying in the flat you will have total privacy and no interruptions.
Check out all the info online and in guidebooks about Central - Sheung Wan. It is definitely a happening neighborhood.
We are 5 min walk to the Sheung Wan MTR, less than 5 min to Macau Ferry terminal and just about 10-15 min walk to IFC / Airport Express.
Please be respectful. Feel free to use anything in the kitchen but just remember to turn off all appliances and turn off aircon when you leave. Enjoy yourself but no parties, no smoking and no red wine on the white couch please. The doormen in the building are great - they will let you in with a wave and a smile, so please be kind to them.
Eric is a great host. He met us right at Western Market and showed us to the apartment nearby. Eric made clear that he was available by phone to answer any questions about the apartment or its surroundings. Indeed, when we had a question about where to have laundry done we called him and he was ready with a place to go.
About the apartment. It is actually a fairly large 2BR, by Hong Kong standards. The bathroom has instant-on hot water and a regular bathtub. The kitchen has two gas burners and a small refrigerator. Fantastic views of the harbor from all windows. The bedrooms are just big enough to fit queen sized beds. If you've been to Hong Kong before, you know that the above cannot be assumed. But it's all there in Eric's apartment.
The best thing about Eric's place is the location. It is literally central to everything in Hong Kong, and just steps from the Sheung Wan metro. I highly recommend staying at Eric's place.
The listing was exactly what it said it was. Location was great, close to MTR and great views. Actual apartment was clean and organized with enough supply's to last for well beyond our stay.
I would recommend this location to friends and family. I will certainly look to rent this property again on my next trip to Hong Kong.
Eric is kind and very accommodating. The flat is amazing with superb view. It was a very pleasant experience.
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Location and flat are awesome. Eric was great with coordination and getting us settled. We sprung two surprise guests on him for two of the nights but he was incredibly gracious and accommodating.
All of the images and descriptions are completely accurate and I would definitely stay there again.
Eric was a great host - he made us feel really welcome in his apartment and answered all email enquiries promptly.
The apartment has superb views and is well laid out as described. The bed is new with new pillows and was nice and comfortable.
Sheung Wan is a great location as it is close to the MTR, ferries and some great restaurants. We especially liked the chocolate croissants from the bakery at the bottom of the building.
Nous avons apprécié énormément l'appartement d'Éric ;
Une ambiance agréable et un bon agencement du logement .
il est idealement situé au coeur d'un quartier les plus animés de Hong Kong .
les transports, commerces et restaurant sont au pied de la tour ou se situe l'appart. Idéal pour découvrir la ville HK
Eric est un hote particulièrement arrangeant .
Notre séjour a été une réelle réussite !
