Interaction with Guests
As much as possible or invisible if you want. I will try to meet with arriving guests and show them the area. Whenever guests need information or recommendations, I am always available via messaging or phone.
The Sheung Wan neighbourhood is ever changing and a fantastic mix of "old' and "new" Hong Kong. This apartment is located in the heart of Hong Kong's commercial, cultural and shopping districts and within short walking distance to the subway and HK Macau Ferry Pier. A few minutes walk away from the harbour front and the fantastic Sun Yat Sun Memorial Park and Public swimming pool over look the world famous Victoria Harbor.
The Sheung Wan MTR station is but 8 min walking distance away that takes you all over Hong Kong and Kowloon. There are also buses, trams, minibuses that run near the doorstep of the building on Des Voeux Road West Road and take you to every corner of the island and beyond.
Other Things to Note
Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.
This is a Strictly NON SMOKING Flat.
UPON ARRIVAL AT PROPERTY, ALL GUESTS MUST WAIT FOR ME AT THE FRONT GATE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. BUILDING RESIDENTS WILL COMPLAIN TO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT IF THE LOBBY AREA INSIDE BUILDING IS BLOCKED. THANKS FOR YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY.
Check in time is AFTER 12:30 pm. Make sure to contact us by phone at least 30 minutes prior to arrival such that we can meet you at the flat to hand you the keys and acquaint you to the surroundings. As this is a family business, please try your best to arrive at the apartment as early as possible. After 11:30pm as transport to the apartment is limited for us, we have to charge HKD150 to cover our taxi transport cost to and from the apartment. We are generally exhausted at the end of the day and we really would rather you arrive early and not have to charge this.
Guests must wait for us OUTSIDE the building upon arrival and not enter the building without us as this causes unnecessary misunderstandings with the property management and residents of the buildings.
Check out time is STRICT at 11:00 am. NO EXCEPTIONS or you will be charged for an extra full day. Our cleaning crew will arrive at 11:00 am to service the flat for the next guest, thanks for your cooperation.
Please help us save the environment by turning off electrical appliances when leaving the apartment or not using them.
Water heater needs to be turned off when not using. If it breaks due to prolonged time left on, you will not have any hot water for your stay and will be subject to expensive repair charges.
In the case that you have an evening departure flight:
Please note that you can check in your luggage at anytime during the same day as your flight at the Hong Kong Station Airport Express, which is only a 5 minute taxi or bus ride from the apartment. That way you would be free to explore the city on your last day, not having to worry about your luggage or rushing to the airport since you have already checked in, you will not have to be at the airport as early as everyone else.
All airlines flying from Hong Kong airport offer In Town check in, EXCEPT the following:

The apartment was very much like advertised. We were welcomed for check in after our late flight. It's conveniently located within a few minutes walk to the MTR. Buses picked up right around the corner. We were on a budget and looking for value. The place was small, like expected, but had everything that we needed so we could enjoy our experiences in Hong Kong and then come back to refresh. There is a great local breakfast place one street over. There is a Circle K and 7 Eleven really close by. It was safe. When we came and went, at different hours of the day or night, we always felt comfortable. Brendan was a great host, doing everything and more that you could hope for from a host to make sure our stay was a seamless one. At the end, we were able to get to check in at the Airport Express only a few minutes away, which was really easy and convenient to use. I would definitely recommend this host and this property. Thank you very much for our stay!!
The overall experience was ok once we got checked in and got familiar with the vicinity. Room was simple and complete with amenities. Getting around without much walking was via the road tram at Sutherland station as the nearest MTR is a 10 minute walk. The room is value for money with strong wifi and separate shower from toilet. Brend had a lot of other guests when we arrived so we didn't get to meet and had a slight delay in getting us settled in. Overall it's ok.
It really is a compact and small apartment, but really neat and as show of the pictures. The location is good, you can walk to a lot famous and interesting place.
Everything was really great regarding the booking. The host was nice and friendly, easy to get in contact with, and provided lots of nice information; from the best way to get to the room, to things to do while in Hong Kong. Check-in and check-out was easy, no fuss. The room was as shown in the pictures. Very comfortable and plenty of space for me as I was traveling alone. The room has everything needed, from a small fridge to a microwave. There is a 7-11 right around the corner if you need a late night snack, and a laundry shop nearby if you need to have your clothes cleaned. The new Sai Ying Pun MTR station is literally a 1-2 minute walk away from the room which is great. Very convenient to get around the city. There is also a fantastic public swimming pool which overlooks Victoria harbor right across the road from this room. There is fast and stable Wi-Fi in the room, and the aircon was nice and cold which is a must for the hot summer months in Hong Kong. Overall this was a great stay and I would recommend it to others looking for a comfortable stay in Hong Kong. :)
Listing is as advertised in the photos and description, small but clean. It is a very short walk to the Sai Ying Pun MTR entrance/exit. The location to the MTR station and the main road, Des Voeux Road (catch a taxi), made traveling around the city very accessible.
Awesome location, I went jogging by the harbor everyday. Incredibly fast internet. The place is cosy and has everything you could need. Brend is very helpful and was very understanding when I got an issue with transport that made get there way later than expected. Thanks for a great stay!
Small but cozy room. U have everything u need in the room. Easy access to KTR station. Many resturant nearby with fair price. But i would like to have a bigger fridge lol.
