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 Causeway Bay.
It is the perfect location for you no mater why you have come to Hong Kong.
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!
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. :)
In the studio bedroom/living room you'll find:
a double bed with a brand new very comfortable mattress (a little smaller than doubles in the West, it is 4' x 6'/180cm X 120cm)
a rocking chair
a TV (with local and international channels -- though hopefully you'll be too busy exploring HK to use it :)
free WiFi (super fast broadband network)
a quiet air conditioner
In the Kitchenette you'll find:
a Mini fridge
a single burner induction stove
an electric kettle
coffees, teas, snacks and drinks
beer, wine and spirits
In the Bathroom you'll find:
a hair dryer
220 volt outlets
a plug adapter for your gadgets (not a voltage converter)
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 less than 100m from Causeway Bay 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.
Other Things to Note
Check in is after 2pm and check out is before 12 noon. I'm happy to accommodate early check in and late check out as long as I don't have guests arriving/departing on the same days.
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.
The flat was clean and matched the description in the listing. The location was unbeatable but it was very, very small. I understand that's normal for Hong Kong but I can't imagine it getting smaller than that. If you are a couple sharing the bed you might be a bit uncomfortable because you're so squeezed in. But Alex was a helpful host, leaving maps and a guide book, as well as stocking the fridge with some much-appreciated cold drinks.
The location of the apartment is excellent. You are only a few mins walk from the MTR station. The size of the apartment is small but not too small based on HK standard. The place is quiet. Lots of food choices around the house.
This place is great for solo travellers! I stayed in this studio for 4 nights in total. It's in a fantastic location, just steps away from Causeway Bay MTR station; the ding-ding trams pass by outside, and its super convenient for the Airport bus. I can imagine it might get a bit cramped for two people if they both had big luggage, but if you're out and about seeing all that Hong Kong has to offer, you probably won't be spending too much time indoors anyway! Alex was a great host, very informative and detail oriented and always on hand to answer any questions I had. If you're looking for a place in the Causeway Bay area, you can't go wrong!
Alex's apartment was great. Superb location. The mtr exit was just a street across and it was near all the causeway bay locations such as the sogo, lee theater, etc. the room though small, was well furnished.
제 아내와 함께 5일간 이용했습니다. 2명이 사용하려면 약간 좁지만, 위치는 최상입니다. MTR 코즈웨이베이 역에서 1분거리. 이부자리와 청소상태도 아주 좋습니다. 조리시설과 그릇, 수저 일체는 물론 와인과 각종 차, 탄산음료 까지 준비되어 있습니다. 물론 무료입니다. 입구 열쇠가 잘 열리지 않았습니다. 열쇠를 충분히 돌렸다고 느껴질때, 같은 방향으로 조금 더 돌리면 열립니다. 락박스는 한국인에게 익숙하지 않은 장치입니다. 검정색 커버를 열고, 비밀번호를 입력하고, 검정버튼을 아래로 누르면 박스가 열립니다. 그 안에 열쇠 2개가(출입문과 룸) 들어있습니다. 이 피드백이 여러분에게 도움이 되길 바랍니다.
Alex gave me very clear directions how to reach his apartment. He waited there to hand me the keys and gave me some tips on where to eat. His place was very clean and what I really liked it had a normal shower and not a HK budget one where you just shower on the floor. Location is right in the centre where all shops and stores are so I didn't have to go far for anything. Also its right on the metro line what makes your life much easier when traveling across HK.
I would recommend his place to anyone who is visiting HK.

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.
