Charming 500 sq ft studio with an enormous wrap-around terrace, built-in BBQ, outdoor furniture. Beautifully renovated, fully furnished to include outdoor furniture and equipped to allow you to walk in with a suitcase. Very quiet, 5 minutes walk from MTR and Hong Kong vibrant life. Unique quiet apartment in Central with terrace and antique furniture and Queen bed size.
The apartment is equipped with Internet access , Now boradband TV, wireless internet, washing/dryer and a tennis table !
The apartment looked much like the photographs and the bed was very comfortable. The double glazing on the windows blocks most of the street noise, and it is very stylishly decorated in a pleasing Hong Kong/European fusion decor. Phillipe was not available for check in but he has a helper who was at the apartment to greet us, and she was friendly and informative. The apartment was quite clean, although the shower could use more thorough attention. Having the kitchen was great, and although the space is small, it was organised and useable, and great to have a self catering option if you tire of eating every meal out. We used the private outdoor courtyard to sit in for breakfasts, but since Hong Kong air is so polluted and the warmer summer weather was building, we didn't linger. It's a very central location, quick to walk to the mid-levels escalator and to Central. There is a wet market in the street below, giving a local colourful vibe, and some of the best bars, restaurants and shopping in the city are just up the street on Staunton Street. Common Grounds cafe with a well made cup of coffee is a short walk away. The space is small, there is some street noise, but Hong Kong is a crowded noisy city where space is hard to come by and this is a well priced, private and comfortable place to stay when comparing the available alternatives, and I would recommend it to other travellers.
Second stay at Phil's. No complaints, always a pleasure. Excellent location, quiet and clean apartment. Thanks for hosting!
Wow! This apartment was way beyond our expectations, and was a major contributing factor to a successful and wonderful holiday in the best part of Hong Kong. The terrace is a wonderful feature, as is the huge, comfy bed and shower. We will definitely return. Thank you so much to our host, and very helpful and friendly concierge.
I enjoyed my stay in Philippe's apartment, the place is small but cosy, clean, with a good location in a pedestrian street in the heart of Central, and the terrasse is very nice add-in. The kitchen is very well equipped, the place is quiet at night. Just a shame the washing machine hadn't been repaired in a month time I was there. It was in any case a very nice stay!
The reservation was canceled 9 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Hi Philippe, thanks for staying over in your lovely appartement. The terrace is very Nice and the location, nearby Soho and Graham Street, is perfect.
Hope to visit you again Sometime.

I was given a contact name and phone number and arranged to meet on site and was shown around the apartment when I arrived. The apartment was clean and tidy and well appointed with a very spacious balcony area where I could entertain visitors, which is something not always possible in HK.
It is located right next to a street market for fruit, vegetables, fish and meat, and handy to a bakery/cafe.
