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!

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.
Thank you!! Place was great a lill small but welcome to Hong Kong.
Alex was a great host and went out of his way to make the stay enjoyable. I will bee recommending Alex to my friends coming to HK. GREAT, clean and wonderful service 5 star. I'll be back Forsure.
Five stars! A wonderful apartment with a wonderful host. Alex was accommodating in the extreme. His detailed directions made transferring from the airport absolutely painless. The well-positioned apartment is walking distance from all forms of public transit making all of HK easily accessible. We will definitely be staying with Alex again on our next trip to Hong Kong.
Thanks again for everything, Happy Chinese New Year!
Not much I can say that hasn't already been said. It is a small apartment, but it's extremely home-y and comfortable. Alex went above and beyond the call of duty, providing amazing information and instructions. Whenever I had a question, he replied in minutes (regardless of the hour). As a first-time traveller to Hong Kong, I felt very informed and taken care of. Absolutely would stay here again, and I can't recommend this apartment or Alex enough!!!
This accommodation was in a great part of Hong Kong - so easy to get to on public transport, and therefore great to use as a base when discovering Hong Kong.
The apartment is small, but if you use the space under the bed to store your luggage, it is perfect for the solo traveler or a couple.
Alex is a great communicator and so welcoming. Everything is clearly explained and the apartment is really well equipped.
I would highly recommend this accommodation
I stayed at Alex's place for 4 nights. very small, but comfortable apartment. It has everything you need from AC, hot water to internet. conveniently located as well. Alex is a great host. he sent clear check in/ check out instructions and was available when we needed further guidelines. I highly recommend staying here.
Alex's apartment was perfect! The neighborhood is still a real Hong Kong working area and the food joints were simply excellent. It is also an excellent position to explore the city. Highly recommend for anyone needing a comfortable place to crash as a base for experiencing Hong Kong!
Alex was a great host, even though we never he answered all my questions via email or text messaging. This made my experience a lot more enjoyable.
If you are a sole traveler on a budget then Alex's apartment is ideal for you. although it is small it is comfortable and convenient for all amenities and public transport.
I would definitely stay here again when I visit Hong Kong
Really small, but well organized apartment,everything made in HK style, really nice and clean, the area is not so cool in general, but it's worth to stay there, everything is nearby.
