The Space

Welcome to Hong Kong :)

A small tidy & clean and private room right at heart of HK - Wan Chai. Top convenient 5 minutes walk from Wanchai MTR/Subway station, 10 mins away from Central or Causeway Bay by tram. Many buses downstairs going to all over the Hong Kong Island e.g. to 6 and 6X to Stanley, 15 to the peak etc. There is a 7/11 convenient store and plenty restaurants downstairs. The flat is at 5th floor of the building. It is Ideal for one person or two max. double size bed with private toilet and bath room. Suitable to all of you who need for a comfortable resting space rather a luxury hotel room being honest.

Last but not least, this is a private room with your own toilet and shower rather than sharing with others. The room shares a common corridor with 3 other rooms, it has its own password lock. You DO NOT get to meet other tenants or at least very rarely (I met one of the tenant a couple of times in the past 12 month) Hence great privacy!

The following items will be provided.
***WIFI Access***
1. Shampoo,
2. Shower gel,
3. Clean towel,
4. Clean sheets & blanket, pillow
5. Kettle
6. Fridge
7. Washing machine
8. Microwave
9. LCD TV
10. Air conditioner
11. Electric stove

You will need to bring your own tooth brush and tooth paste. Although you can easily buy them downstairs at 711. If you need anything in addition to these, please give me a heads up first and I will try to arrange that for you.

  • Neat HK-size unit at very convenient location

  • sehr angenehmes Zimmer, eher eng zwar, für zwei Personen die sich sehr mögen :-) geht es aber gut, und erstaunlich ruhig ist es erst noch, obschon mitten in Wan Chai gelegen. Es hat eine Dusche die funktioniert, eine Kochnische, Waschmaschine ... Es gibt nichts zu reklamieren.

  • Great place. Good location, washing machine worked well, wifi is good. Place is small, but pictures accurately reflect it.
    We had one issue where the code on the outer door had changed so we couldn't get in, but Wendy was very responsive and we were inside w/in 5 minutes.

    Recommended.

  • Location is very good and the room is clean. Very convenient to Central and MTR. Wendy is very helpful to get me check-in much earlier accommodating for my flight schedule. It was a pleasant stay

  • Small and compact room with everything you need for a short stay. Stayed for a week while I was looking at apts and it has a very convenient location, 24-hr security building and a view to the road outside. It would prob be tight if you were more than one person tho.

  • Just finished a month and a half stay here.

    Overall I am please with the location of WanChai in Hong Kong Island. Convenient to many transportation choices (tram, bus, taxi, MTR, minibus), shopping, restaurants of all kinds are closed by. Most major tourist destinations are short hops (within half an hour or less by MTR subways will get you to Causeway Bay, Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok etc) and Ding Ding Tram stations both East and West directions are just outside the door, Getting to and from airport by Airport Express .Bus A11 (inside has luggage racks) is the cheapest (HK$40), by MTR and taxi will cost HK$100-over $300, so depends on budget and luggages.

    Unit of course is standard for Hong Kong resident--which means ultra small. Dont let the photos fool you, bed is 4 feet by 6 feet, barely ok for Asians but a little small for most Caucasians and those of us who are not from Hong Kong and used to larger beds, and on the firmer side. Amenities as described with very good free WiFi. Hot water is instant electric probably not a good idea to run continuously for extended time.

    Unit has a hot plate but no cooking utensil is provided (special pots and pans required). Microwave and small refrigerator and a washer/spin dryer unit is very helpful especially for long stay. Everything is very basic and space is compact so dont expect to spend a lot of time inside if two guests, you can feel claustrophobic. Cleaning service is provided on a periodic basis (I really didnt need it for my long stay) and one of the girls, Yani, who is Indonesian speaks good English, better than the host.

    Only problem I ran into (only bumped into host once, she didnt check me in or out) was the confusion of assigning supposedly a more costly unit when I first checked in and Wendy initially wanted me to switch room or pay more. I told her I cannot move room after I've been there a week already and my unit was the only one that has the Clothe Closet as shown in the Airbnb description. Apparently the "original unit" I was looking at has photos of closet but actually not--SO BE VERY CAREFUL if having place to hang clothes is important to you, otherwise you only have a few hooks to do that.

    These units are on the 5th floor so depending on window direction can have some street noise but not too bad. Building has 24 hours security desk to let guests in-out and speak rudimentary English, they are not Wendy employees but can be helpful. Wellcome market, 7-11 and Circle K is just outside or across street.

About
I lived in Wanchai with my husband and my children for quite a few years. This is really a nice place to live with good transportation and facilities. We can speak English and we welcome people from around the world. Hope to meet you all and make friends with all of you in Hong Kong!
