Great flat in the nicest area of Hong Kong ( in our view).
The flat is very nice, well designed and actually bigger than the photos indicate. The kitchen and bathroom are big compared to many other places, there is a nice sitting area and a good size bedroom with a comfy bed and lots of storage space.
Very smart electronic lock on the door, so no need to worry about keys. The flat and the area felt very safe! There is not much daylight as there are only two small windows in the bedroom, but if you're out most of the day it does not matter.
We loved the airy, green, hip area around Blake Gardens. Nice little restaurants, cafés and fun design shops in between the traditional Chinese temples and still a bit outside the tourist hang outs. Be sure to check out Tai Ping Shan Street close by. 10-15 min walk to escalators in central, 5 min to MRT Sheung Wan. Or catch a bus on Hollywood Rd.
Winnie is a lovely, friendly host, quick to answer any questions. We would definitely love to stay here again.
Winnie was extremely helpful and supportive for my visit. Excellent communication and flexibility. Would recommend very highly.
The apartment truly earns the "designer" tag on the Airbnb listing. Very well done, with all equipment in good working condition. On my arrival, I noticed and mentioned that there was no ironing board and the next day when I arrived from work, there it was, brand new good quality ironing board. The bed is very very comfortable, shower is big (just don't turn off the water heater by mistake like I did!) and everything tidy and clean. Nice local and western restaurants and supermarkets (International & Wellcom) nearby. I particularly liked the electronic lock on the door, which eliminates the need for carrying a key and the fear (and inconvenience / cost) of losing it. Also makes it easier to check out without arranging to leave the key somewhere. I'd definitely recommend it to visitors to Hong Kong.
The real HK live it love it experience.
+ Top location on a quiet terrace in a trendy neighbourhood. Just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of HK. Many nice restaurants in this area
+ hidden on a terrace, not many people passed by, we opened often the front doors and were sitting in front of the house just to chill. It is quite a dark loft, for daylight you must sit outside. All passed people peeps inside and says wow!
+ famous HK local movie/filming area, have to say the background is really cool in this area. If you like photoshooting this is the place to be.
- The minus 1 point cause of the many stairs, but it really compensate when you leave the stairs..... But this is the real SoHo/Sheung Wan feel.
The loft: 7
+ beautiful and funky decorated, we liked the whole interior design.
+ best bed we had for our sleep, really huge!
+ the audiosystem
+ loft is really big for HK "standard"
+ huge open kitchen. The loft is also in use for workshops.
- 1st quickscan the apartment was clean but if you look better it could be deepcleaned in our opinion. Winnie compensated this problem by arranging a xtra free cleaning day for us. But still don't compare it with hotel standards.
- smelly ground floor due to the humidity, bedroom no problem at all.
- no tv channels available, actually not the most important thing, but if we could watch some television we will add another + point
- we saw cockroaches, a local known HK issue we seen before in other apartments and houses....
Host Winnie: 10
Winnie was a very good guestfriendly host ;-) she responds quickly by email if we had questions. Very reliable! She was not in HK to meet so her helper was hosting our arrival day. She also gave us nice recommendations about the area. Winnie also helped us to store some luggage after we checkout cause we didn't need the xtra luggage weight for our trip to Macau. Very kind of her!
Overall we really enjoyed our stay! Thanks Winnie!
Winnie's place is great and super well situated in Hong Kong. And winnie is very present to help with anything, any situation you'll face.
Winnie's apartment is better than it looks in the pictures. The space is truly huge - if we'd had 16 friends in Hong Kong, we could have had them around to dinner...The location is great - close to everything and easy to access the main sites on the island. Winnie was also very happy to help us out - we had lost a bag en route to Hong Kong, and Winnie was the main point of contact with our airline. I would very happily recommend Winnie and her apartment, and would definitely stay with Winnie again. Thanks for everything Winnie!
My partner and I stayed in Winnie's apartment for 7 days. Winnie was available to contact at any time and answered emails promptly. The location is perfect, about a 2 minute walk to Liverpool Street Station and restaurants. The apartment is warm and comfortable and I recommend it for anyone staying in London.
My wife and I stayed in London for about 2 weeks and the flat was quite comfortable and met all our needs. The great window in the LR was a real asset. The flat is only two minutes away from Liverpool Station and major public transport and although the area is full of activities the flat is tucked away in a small alley away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Close to major attractions such as Brick Lane we enjoyed Spitalfields market, the many eateries, cafes and the assorted stores.
Although we did not meet Winnie as she was out of town, she was always available, initially via e mail until we booked and by phone as well afterwards. Hopefully we will meet her next time that we will need her flat in London.
I've been to Winnie's apartment on holidays with my girlfriend.
Concerning the apartment itself, it is great, bright and spacious as described, very clean, very comfortable for a couple and everything works properly. We've loved our stay.
It is also in a very good location. It is quite easy to get around a very near to Liverpool Street station as well as Tesco Metro and some very nice restaurants and pubs. Just perfect!
Unfortunately we have met Winnie just for a little while when we arrived from the airport, but proved to be very receptive and welcoming.
She has helped us a lot while planning our stay, giving us detailed directions from Heathrow to the place and patiently explained every detail about the apartment itself.
Highly recommended for someone who visits London on vacation or work.
Simply put: Winnie's place is amazing! Having sampled various apartments/rooms across the city, I can honestly say that this place is a rare find. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street, the spacious first floor and comfortable bedroom were a very, very welcome relief from the cupboard sized rooms I'm used to (and the sound system is great). Winne and her staff were extremely accommodating, and I would recommend to anyone looking for a special stay in Hong Kong. I will be back!
Everything was nice with Winnie! She and her boyfriend left the apartment clean and tidy.
I hope to have her back in the next future for a longer holiday so to have the possibility to know her better.
Didn't meet Winnie personally as I was away but she was really friendly, polite and left the apartment clean so happy to recommend her as a guest.
Winnie is really easy guest. It was great having her around, although most of the time we hardly noticed she was there! She is going to be beased in London for the next couple of months for work and she was staying with us while looking for a place of her own. She is very interesting to talk to and I hope to see more of her while she is living in London. She was neat and tidy and left the room spotless!
I had the pleasure of hosting Winnie during her New York stay..at a time when hurricane Sandy had just ended her stay which left a large part of the city without internet. Winnie steped in and helped contact Verizon-the provider- to get things going. Thanks Winnie! She was considerate, quiet, responsive, understanding and all together the most you could ask for in a guest. I highly reccommend her!!
Winnie was a wonderful guest, I will be more than happy to welcome her in London again. Great communication and very helpful.
Winnie was a very nice guest!
We we're happy to have her :)
Winnie is a great communicator, clean and easy going. Great hosting experience for me and will most likely be for you too.
Winnie was a wonderful guest at our loft. Upon check out the place was in perfect shape and all was in order. We would love to have her back anytime she's in NYC. :)
It was a pleasure to host Winnie, everything was pretty smooth sailing. We talked through everything at the beginning to go over the apartment set up etc, addressing questions and setting expectations. She was really great to deal with, responsive and respectful. I would recommend Winnie as an ideal house guest and would be happy to host her again.
