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. You'll live like a true Hong Konger and reassess how much space you really need in this streamlined studio- ideal for an individual or a couple that doesn't mind sharing a very 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 (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 will be too busy exploring the neighborhood to use it :)
free WiFi (super fast broadband network)
a quiet air conditioner
a Mini fridge
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!

I had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It's probably slightly smaller than one would expect from the images, but it has everything you might need and it's perfect for one person. Two people might be a bit tight. The guidebook was so useful and Alex leaves this little gifts that were much appreciated :)
Great communication before and during the trip, and his detailed instructions made everything so easy to figure out. I was very happy with the location as well.
Alex is the best host! The studio is perfect - clean, with all facilities, comfortable and free drinks! Alex kept in touch at all times and made sure everything was in order. I'm so surprised, and happy, that I could find this place with such top quality in HK. I will definitely ask to stay again when I come back next year and hopefully get to thank Alex in person. :)
Great crash pad for a short stay, dealt with Alex with his other place good airbnber. It's small but very affordable and central wan chai would recommend.
I recently spent 5 nights in HK and had the pleasure of staying at Alex's little cosy pad. Although small by American standards this apartment was probably not so small by HK standards. It was well equipped, had everything I needed (including air conditioning) and was in a great location. Being on the 7th floor noise was not too much of a problem but as a light sleeper the ear plugs were appreciated. Although close to transport, and to the lively night time scene of Lockhart road, the short 5 minute walk put enough distance to provide a quieter night-time. Alex's directions were excellent and his little extras great much appreciated. As a single female I felt very safe in this area.
Positive: The apartment was small but clean and conveniently located.
Not so positive: The bed as a little to high and the 2 flights of stairs leading to the lift can be quite challenging for heavy luggage.
Overall: It's still value for money, given the good location.
I spent two nights in Alex's flat. Though I arrived very late (around 2am), the check in was very smooth because of the detailed instructions left by the host. The room itself is quite small (80-100 sq feet) but it has everything you need and the bed is quite comfortable (the most important thing for me). The flat also has a very modern feel to it and is quite bright but the blinds keep out the light if you wish. I had a little problem with the hot water for showering but I think turning on the hot water heater a couple of hours in advance would solve the problem. The flat was very quiet and I slept very well. It is very convenient being only a couple of minutes walk to the metro. The bottles of wine and drinks that Alex provided were a nice touch. All in all, I had a very positive experience and would definitely stay there again.
this was a great stay. the place is small but very well organize and cozy.the location could not be better, on a walking distance of the mayor attraction on hong kong. and very close to subway station and tram station too.
Alex took care of everything before we get there, send us good directions to find the place, and answering our questions quite fast and diligently.
i would comeback here anytime.
It was my first time in Hongkong and Alex' apartment and his quality as host made my holidays there very comfortable and safe. Communication via Email before and during my trip was excellent. The apartment is very clean and indeed cozy. It is in Wan Chai which became my favourite district after I nearly have seen all of the famous spots of HK. I really can recommend this studio. Thanks Alex!
We really enjoyed our stay in Alex's apartment last week. He was extremely helpful in giving us directions from Wan Chai station which made our initial journey of finding the apartment very smooth and simple. The apartment itself is modest, yet cosy and very comfortable and we definitely slept very well, perhaps too well as we woke up at almost midday everyday! Alex was also generous in leaving some free drinks for us upon arrival! All in all a great apartment, very much recommended for those who want a cosy and very conveniently located stay.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
