Stayed from 3- 9 March 2014 with my husband and 5 year old kid.
Excellent location and lovely apartment with a terrace. Good value for money considering how conveniently located the apartment is to local and international eateries, supermarket and the Central MTR station. 40mins to Disneyland, to Ocean Park, 15 mins walk to The Peak.
Will definitely stay here again when I am back in HK!
Beautifull appt - very bright and sunny and terrace is huge! The lush green palm trees were an oasis in the concrete downtown, very relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Appt and kitchen well laid out and very functional, and helper Kim was lovely and helpful. Overall an oustanding vacation appt and everything worked well - would definitely stay here again!
This is not my first stay at Philippe's; I have always enjoyed the setting. Perfect for 2 and is centrally located. All kinds of great restaurants within 5 mins walk.
I would recommend this place.
No editorial here - make your own conclusions:
We communicated with the host weeks before arrival that our flight got in at 7:45. 24 hours pre-arrival, we sent him our flight info and confirmed 7:45. When we arrived, no one was there. We were lucky that the doorman let us in and also let us use the phone.
We called the host and left several messages. He did not pick up or call back even though he clearly knew he had guests coming. We called AirBnB and they too couldn't reach the host. Finally, after over an hour of waiting, the helper ran in and unlocked the place for us. She said that the host had told her that we were coming in at 10pm. Not sure where he got that idea...
Overall, the apartment is nice if not a little cluttered - but same as in the photos. We had asked for extra towels from the helper the first night and she never brought them (only 2 body towels and a hand towel, no face towels - 2 people 4 days). I did stumble upon storage under the bed where there was another towel so that was helpful.
We loved staying at Phillipe's apartment, the location was perfect and the apartment had all the home comforts. The outside area is fantastic and a rarity in Hong Kong to have the space. I would 100% recommend Phillipe's apartment and would definitely stay there again if we returned to Hong Kong
Phillippe's flat is fantastic! My wife and I were looking for a conveniently located flat to spend a week in Hong Kong and this place couldn't have been better. It is perfectly situated for anyone who enjoys the Soho neighborhood. It is right next to Hollywood road and a quick 10 minute walk can have you at either the Central MTR station or the ferry docks. The outdoor living space is ample, the furniture very comfortable, and the overall accommodations fantastic. We really enjoyed ourselves and recommend it strongly.
A very unique apartment for Hong Kong. Definitely recommended.
AMAZING LOCATION blocks within amazing food and bars.
Very nice set up, location is good, closed to town center easy access to all public transportation. From airport to the apartment is not difficult once you reviewed through (website hidden) map. Philippe kept the place very (website hidden) was a little difficult on work with. Don't plan on doing any major cooking other than making tea or coffee, kitchen is very narrow. I would recommend this place and would go back again.
Location is great. Right in Central. A few steps from a street market, just around the corner from a supermarket, couple of minutes walk to the escalator. Could be difficult if you've got a lot of bags - taxis stop at top of street and there are steps up to apartment, but Philippe's helper met us, which was really good, and also came to help when we left. Bottom line - would we stay there again - yes!
He is a perfect guy, really interesting and tidy. We have a great time.
Reliable, respectful and interesting
