  • The flat was ok for the price.
    It was very small but comfy. The bed was a little small since I'm a tall guy but it was ok. The only point was that it was a little dusty here and there when I checked in, but bed sheets looked clean so it was ok.

    The flat is VERY WELL located. 2mn walk to Sheung Wan MTR, 10mn walk from Central.

    Please not that landlord asks for a "sercurity deposit" in cash of 4000HKD.
    As this was my first AriBnB experience, I was very wary about this since it's stated everywhere that you shouldn't pay anything in cash outside from the airbnb system, so I refused to pay it outside from the website payment system.
    Plus it was a tremendous amount of cash and I didn't have that amount to dispose of as it was nearly my whole "pocket money" amount for my stay in HK.
    I have to point out that the landlord totally understood my trust issue and accomodate for us.

  • if you need a bed in Soho there you go, I wouldn't suggest it more than a week, but overall is fine.

  • There are pros and cons in my 10 months stay at the studio apartment at mercer street. Some of the pros are the location is convenient and accessible to places (near the mtr, food stalls and convenience shops, it's also a few minutes walk to central and to different neighbourhood nearby) as well as the neighbourhood is generally quiet (great for me as a student of HKU). There is also weekly cleaning services and changing of bed sheets. The room may be small but it is sufficient for 1 or 2 persons to stay in.
    However, there may be some challenges staying in the studio apartment such as there may be pests from time to time (as it is located above food stalls, and will be good to arm with insecticides) and may be able to smell/hear the neighbours' due to thin partition. I had shifted once in my 10 months stay period due to an inconsiderate neighbour who smokes and parties at wee hours. However, Simens has been very prompt and considerate in handling the matter to allow me to shift to another room in the middle of my stay. Overall, I find the service reliable and will still recommend for people to consider staying at the studio apartment.

  • Our group of 6 people lived in this apartment for 5 days. The pictures are not fully representative of the apartment itself. The pictures made the apartment appear newer than it actually is but there were comfortable size rooms that does sleeps a good amount of people with two bathrooms. There were cracks on the walls as well as an overall feeling of dinginess and there is a smell that comes from the bathroom especially if you do not keep the doors opened to air it out. One of the bathroom doors fell off the hinge and we contacted the owner and the cleaning lady but nothing was done. Starting from the second or third night, the metal gate door outside messed up and does not lock or open correctly without banging.

    The location for the apartment was great, not a four star hotel but was great for the value and space, would stay again if have a choice.

  • First of all I was disappointed when I stepped into the house. I received a message around 2.30pm that the house has been been cleaned and is ready for check in. But when I reached around 5.00pm, the house was in a mess! Towels were everywhere, there were litters on the floor. My family and I spent the next 1 hour cleaning the whole house, including the toilets and washing the towels. A lady then showed up at 7.00pm, claiming that she's the owner and was unable to clean the house earlier as there were no cleaners. If so, then please don't send me a message saying the house is already clean. Could have message that the house could only be clean later and I would gladly understand.

    Other than that I like the location of the place. Walking distance to almost everywhere. Situated in the middle of Nathan Road.

    I won't mind staying there again during my next visit. But hopefully the place is gonna be clean.

  • The place was clean. Location was great. Great all around. Only bad thing I can say is we booked for 10 people which definitely did not fit. Would fit about 7 people max.

  • I stayed at Simens place my first month in Hong Kong and had a very pleasant experience. It's located in a nice vibrant area of Hong Kong with public transportation, laundry service and restaurants literally around the corner. Everything from check in to check out went smoothly and I can definitely recommend it to travellers planning a longer stay in Hong Kong.

About
Most of the properties belong to my relatives. The rest belong to me. The service is not as good as hotel service. The place is not as spacious as a 300CNY hotel in China. All places are rented for long term before by Hong Kong locals. Yes. We ourselves live in same kind of condition. We are offering a place in convenient location and with very local Hong Kong lift style. Of course, comparing to hotel, our places are at least 50% cheaper in same size.
