Hollywood Rd, SoHo, Fab Studio 3A

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Tung St, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Located steps from Hollywood road, with new eateries, art galleries and trendy bars rejuvenating this traditional neighbourhood in the heart of the city. The studio and private rooftop garden is guaranteed to add that extra memory to your stay in HK.

The Space

Located on Hollywood Road, walking distance to MTR station and Bar and party District Lan Kwai Fong, this apartment to yourself, has wireless internet, cable TV (plasma wall mount), DVD Player, full bathroom with enclosed newly remodeled shower, 2 real beds for UP TO 2 couples and open kitchen area with electric cooker and local adapters for a HKD20 fee each**

It is close to all sorts of transportation that take you to everywhere you would want to go to in Hong Kong. It is 5 minutes of walking to the Central MTR Station and very close to the foreign friendly district Soho (South of Hollywood Rd). Also, there are 7 Eleven convenient stores near by. In SOHO you will find a large variety of international eateries as well as bars and nightclubs. A major attraction is the Central–Mid-levels escalators in Hong Kong which is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world as it cover 800 meters.

**In the past I have borrowed out adapters for FREE to guests as a courtesy and convenience, however, too many have not been returned (over 50) and I can no longer keep up with restocking. Unfortunately, I can't provide these for free but if necessary, will sell them AT COST (@HKD20) instead. Sorry that this gesture failed.

  • Yes, you have to haul luggage up a few flights of stairs, yes, it is small (it is Hong Kong), but where else do you have a roof garden in such a convenient location. Walking distance to train, trolley, ferry, bus, shops, restaurants, you won't spend long indoors, anyway. And it's safe

  • Great location!! Close to MTR train line, great restaurants, bars, culture, everything! VERY small, but I understand most Hong Kong apartments are. Good use of space in the room with lots of hooks and shelves for clothing. Easy directions to get to the apartment. Air con and fan was fantastic. Shower pressure amazing. I felt it was a good place to stay for a shorter trip with two people due to the small size of the apartment but would be perfect if traveling solo for longer stay.

  • Hollywood Rd 3A studio was as described. Judging by the photos, I did expect the studio to be very small but felt even smaller in person. The apartment is on the 3rd floor with no elevator, there are also public street stairs to deal with when accessing the apartment. The roof top garden was a welcome evening treat, wifi worked flawlessly. Brendan was a perfect host.

  • A woman was in front of the building to welcome me. I didn't have enough money for the cab so she gave me some. It was very nice of her.
    The room is small. But clean. But very very small... and dark.
    The place is not enough ventilated so as a result, after one night all your clothes are wet. Even the ones in your luggage! I sent an email to Brendan in order to know how to use the laundry and also to ask her if she could provide me a broom. She never responded to me.
    I had booked for 2 weeks but I only stayed one. The first week I was alone so it was OK to stay in this tiny sad place. Then, my sister joined me and it was clear that the space was really too small for 2. We moved to the Holiday Inn Express only 2 streets away. We didn't regret our decision even if it meant extra fees.
    I sent another email to Brendan regarding the keys I wanted to give her back. One more time she never responded to me. I had to leave the keys at the front desk of the Holiday Inn. I suppose she got them since I never got more news from her.

  • Overall stay was good. Brendan was prompt in assisting us when we inform him that we were having some issues with the cable TV.

    Pros:-
    - Near to MTR
    - Friendly host
    - Awesome rooftop terrace (we spent alot of time chilling there instead of shopping!)
    - Heaps of hooks for hanging clothes
    - Fast and stable WIFI

    Cons:-
    - Walls/doors weren't really good at blocking out noise. Our neighbour was really noisy till wee hours.

    Will definitely stay here again! :)

  • Brendan was very accommodating. We had a late arrival in HK for our second leg there and he offered to give us the keys before we left for our side trips so we would have them when we got in. The apartment is newly renovated (don't let the narrow staircase scare you), very clean and comfortable.

  • I had a fantastic few days in Brendans apartment - he was the perfect host. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and should I visit again I wouldn't hesitate to stay here once more :)

  • Lovely little studio in a great location in easy walking distance of Shueng Wan MTR. The main room is quite small but the beds are comfy and the bathroom is clean, modern and well fiitted. The studio is really quiet at night because there is no traffic in the surrounding roads and there is a lovely roof terrace for sitting out at night. Thanks for a lovely stay - I'd recommend this to anyone coming to Hong Kong for a short stay.
