Welcome to Hong Kong, a buzzing metropolis by day and a neon galaxy by night. There is so much to do and explore and no better place to do it from than Wanchai.
It is the perfect location for you no mater why you have come to Hong Kong.
Note that the nightly price shown up there doesn't include the one time cleaning fee (I care about cleanliness so I hire a pro) and Airbnb's booking fee. Input your dates and click the 'book it' button to get the total cost of your stay. Ask if you have any questions. :)
My apartment is cozy and well equipped with everything you'll need: soft sheets, fluffy towels, a mini kitchen, bathroom, TV, WiFi, guidebooks, and character. It is ideal for an individual or couple.
Smack in the middle of Hong Kong's shopping and eating centre, our apartment is a fantastic place from which to base yourself during your trip to Hong Kong.
My wife and I had a fun time preparing the apartment for your arrival and we have tried our best to anticipate what you will need during your trip. We are available to help you make the most of your stay!
Did I mention it is in a great location? It's only a:
500 meter walk to the Convention Center
200 meter walk to the MTR (HK's subway system)
600 meter walk to the famous Star Ferry
In the studio bedroom/living room you'll find:

a single mattress that can be put on the floor for an extra person (suitable for only one person)
a small sofa
a TV (with local and international channels- but hopefully you'll be too busy to use it :)

a quiet air conditioner

a Mini fridge
a single burner induction stove
an electric kettle
coffees, teas, snacks and drinks

Interaction with Guests
The studio space is private– everything in the pictures is yours and yours alone. :-)
I'm happy to give recommendations for places to visit and local restaurants.
Causeway Bay and Wanchai are the heart of Hong Kong's consumer culture. Every square inch is filled with shopping malls, department stores, boutiques, market stalls, hole in the wall cafés, international restaurants and banquet halls.
Within walking distance of the apartment, you'll find almost every type of cuisine on the planet as well as the HK must try's: dim sum, roast meats, noodles and congee, cha chan teng (a unique fusion of Chinese/Western food), and snacks and desserts.
If shopping is your thing, you'll find the whole range: From bargains and nicknacks at the Jardine's Crescent street market and Spring Garden Lane, to affordable youth fashion boutiques in Island Beverly Centre, to the tech heaven of the Wanchai Computer Centre, to mid-priced and luxury goods in SOGO and Hysan Place, to the up market fashions found in Lee Gardens, Times Square and Fashion Walk.
You are also right next to Happy Valley, where you can enjoy a beer and watch a horse race on most Wednesdays.
It couldn't be easier to get to the apartment from the airport. The A11 bus picks you up at the airport and drops you off just downstairs from the apartment, and gives you great views of the city as you come into town. You can also get to the apartment by Airport Express (high speed train) and taxi.
The apartment is just a 3 minute walk from Wanchai MTR station (our subway system) and is serviced by Hong Kong's classic tramways and many bus lines. The famous Star Ferry is also just a short walk away.

Have fun, explore the city, eat shop and live life to the fullest.
You are free to use anything in the apartment, please make (email hidden) is an incredibly dense city, please remember the neighbors and don't be too noisy at night.
Absolutely no smoking in the apartment.
Try not to forget anything when you leave.
Great apartment in great area, good value for money! Close to the Star ferry and Wan Chai metro, and an abundance of great food in the same neighbourhood. The apartment is exactly as in the description and as pictured. This is our second time staying in one of Alex' apartments, and we're equally happy as the first time when we stayed in a smaller apartment around the corner from this one. Arriving to the apartment is very convenient, and when leaving you just leave the key and go - always a plus. Thanks for a great stay!
Great host, great apartment. The location is outstanding as it is in a neighborhood of great restaurants (however, what neighborhood in Hong Kong isn't?) and near to MTR.
Hong Kong is known for its dense population and cramped living quarters. Alex's apartment however made me and my family feel like the opposite. It has enough space for our things and for us to move around comfortably. Alex was very helpful with directions to the place and how to get inside the apartment. Though we never met him in person, Alex made sure that we were safely settled in (via text) after we arrived from the airport.
The amenities were exactly as advertised and everything was provided for (cable TV, wireless Internet, electric kettle, extra mattress, bathroom essentials). Oh and thanks for all the freebies!
I will definitely recommend his place to my friends and colleagues. It is strategically located (5-minute walk to the nearest MTR) and the environment is peaceful and quiet. Convenience stores and mini marts abound in the area if you need to buy personal stuff.
This is the perfect place to stay if you are attending or working at the convention center for a week or so, clean, and functional. If you plan on spending a lot of time in doors I would suggest a bigger place, but who travels to Hong Kong to stay indoors ! Everything is as the pictures show and Alex describes.
Tiny flat with everything we needed. Great location and great directions on accessing the building and space.
everything is good！Nice experience！Thank you for Alex to prepare everthing which we need！
Alex was an amazing host. He did a great job with communicating with us since The day we booked, up to the day we left.
He did and excellent job at providing us thorough details and directions on how to get to his place and how to manage the apartment.
The apartment was clean just as shown in the pictures. Alex also left some beverages there for us to enjoy as his treat which we found extremely kind of him.
The location is perfect. Five minute walk to the metro, also near main streets such as Lockhart and Hennessey which you will find plenty of food spots and bars. It's real live at night.
Overall I would recommend Alex's apartment to all my friends and family. We have no complaints whatsoever. We loved Wan Chai, and our stay in Alex's Airbnb made it even better.
Highly highly recommend booking.

I'm from North Carolina, but I've lived in Hong Kong for 11 years.
I love living in and travelling across Asia. You'll usually see me with camera in hand trying to blend in with the local culture, which is difficult for a tall white guy.
But, whether I'm treking across a desert or window shopping on high streets, I always love to meet other like minded free spirits.
My wife and I have really enjoyed preparing our place to be ready for guests. We hope you enjoy it. Please let me know if there is anything special I can prepare for your trip. :-)
As a host, I'll try my best to point out the colorful local scene, and as a guest, I'll I try to leave nothing but good memories.
