Wonderful and clean apt with a great bed. The location cannot be better, right at the heart of Soho. However, I did have communication incident w Phil before and when I arrived (all sorted out in the end). Lastly internet was not good, kept getting cut off and had to restart modem.
Nonetheless, it is a good apt and Phil is a really nice guy in person.

Your responsiveness to my emails before arriving were appreciated. Your Helper waited for me even though my flight was late. The location of the unit is amazing - close to transportation, restaurants, and a local fresh market just 50 feet out the door allowed for a fresh fruit breakfast. Unit is perfect for two. The patio is a great bonus, perfect for bringing in food and enjoying a glass of your favorite beverage. I believe there are a few improvements such as defrosting the fridge and freezer, tossing the dead plants on the patio, repairing the patio awning, and purchasing a new bath mat that would increase renter experience. All in all, love it!
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.
We had a great time in this flat, in the "heart" of HK.
The terrace is amazing, excellent to have dinners with friends.
Second stay at Phil's. No complaints, always a pleasure. Excellent location, quiet and clean apartment. Thanks for hosting!
