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.
My apartment is small but it is 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 a couple that doesn't mind sharing a close space.
Did I mention it is in a great location? It's only a:
600 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 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 TV (local channels-- 2 in English-- but hopefully you'll be too busy exploring the neighborhood to use it :)
free WiFi (super fast broadband network)
a quiet air conditioner
In the Kitchenette you'll find:
a Mini fridge
kitchen utensils (no stove)
an electric kettle
coffees, teas, snacks and drinks
beer and wine (my gift to you!)
In the Bathroom you'll find:
a hair dryer
220 volt outlets
a plug adapter for your gadgets (not a voltage converter)
The building is located very close to the Hong Kong convention center and the Wanchai MTR (subway) station in a part of Wanchai that was built in the late '60s. The buildings are a bit old but the apartment is taken care of. The apartment was originally a larger unit that was renovated and split into 3 studio apartments a few years ago.
The neighborhood is full of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, interior decoration shops and luxury car dealers.
Getting to the apartment from the airport is easy - you can take the train or bus. I'll send you directions when you book. Enjoy your stay!

Everything as described, no surprises. Best info was how to reach WanChai from the airport. Forget the taxi! Train was faster cleaner & more comfortable & cheaper.
Only small glitch was my own fault, forgot you needed to switch on hot water. My fault not host's. Once I sorted that out plenty of hot water.
Alex was a fantastic host! Check in and out was very smooth and Alex was available to answer any questions through out the stay. The flat is very cozy and has a fantastic location.
Alex is being a great host and kindly let me late check out to fit with flight schedule. The studio is clean, convenient, and Alex prepared beer and soft drinks for guests. Like it!
Alex's place was great, just what I needed for my trip to Hong Kong. It was clean, modern, and great location for my purposes. Although small it was state of the art and I would be very happy staying there again and again. It would probably be a bit cozy for two persons, especially if you have lots of luggage.
Alex was extremely helpful on advice and practical details. Everything was easy and comfortable and I would like to recommend this place to any visitor to HK..
Perfect located, quite small for a long-stay, the studio is a great value for a visiting Hong Kong for a few days. Alex is a perfect host, apartment extremely clean and super-cozy. Highly recommended!
I stayed here for 2 nights and think it's a great place for a short stay! As the title states, this place is very small so good for one person or a close couple. There's no closet or storage space so I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay of more than a week as you won't have space to put away your clothes / belongings. The great thing is that it's walking distance to the Wanchai MTR station, which makes it really easy to get around the city. Alex provided us with detailed directions on how to get to the apartment and into the apartment, which was very helpful. The apartment is very clean and well-stocked with free drinks (soda, beer, tea and wine).
Alex is a very experienced host who is highly responsive and accommodating. The description of the apartment is very accurate and our stay went very smoothly. Highly recommended host.
The appartment is exactly as advertised. Its a nice clean studio in the heart of hong kong. Although we did not get to meet alex he was always available on phone and with the detailed instructions he sent for everything from directions to the apartment, things to do etc we never needed to contact him. It was a fun stay and I would highly reccommend Alex to anyone travelling to HK.
Great place to stay in HK within easy walking distance to lots of public transport to get around. Did not get a chance to meet Alex, but the pre-trip communication was very detailed and clear, which made it smooth and effortless to gain access to the apartment even with my late evening arrival time.
Everything in the apartment itself is just as pictured. Two people can squeeze in here, but I would suggest that you are super familiar with the other person since you'll be getting cozy with them. Another little quirk is that the bathroom sink is in the shower itself, which required some planning to be able to use the sink and mirror without getting your feet wet post-shower, but this is just nitpicking.
Overall, would not hesitate to stay here again, especially for the great price. Thanks!
It was totally wonderful:D Location, View, Cleanliness and everything!
Alex was eager to help us, it was impressive! Thank you for his kindness.
As many people says, it was easy to noise. but it wasn't bother me a lot.
And here is one suggestion who will stay in this place!
when you follow the street in front of building, you can find MTR station after passing it(about 1 min by walk to station), there are "King's Dumpling" it was one of my best dinner in HongKong:)
i can't forget the taste of Xiolongbai! if you have a chance to be there, please do!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
