Astrid unit is a clean and spacious unit by Hong Kong standard and within a reasonable walking distance to the Sheung Wan MTR. You will get a cosy and homely feeling upon returning to the unit. Definitely a better choice than staying in a hotel.
Checking in was a breeze and communication with Astrid was prompt and responsive even though she was not in the country. Will definitely recommend it to anyone planning a trip to HK.
I extended my stay in Astrid unit and as stated in my previous review, both the host and the unit are highly recommended for any travellers planning a trip to HK.
Minor gripe: sometimes the Internet connection is a bit unstable but that's something we could look past it.
A beautiful appartement with a even better view. Just a few blocks from the underground and cosy restaurants in Soho. Great communication with Astrid.
Outstanding stay! The apartment is everything you can want - close to the metro, clean, with a nice view. Owner was extremely accommodating helping us orient to the city.
The apartment is at a great location, it's nice and clean just as shown on the pictures. The host Astrid is very nice and accommodating, extended the additional available dates when I decided to stay 2 extra days. Can't expect a better experience, would definitely stay there again when I go to HK.
I arrived in Hong Kong one week early. Astrid met me and gave me a thorough walk-through of her lovely apt. When I moved in, her apt was clean and tidy. She even emptied all the drawers for me so I can unpack and store my stuff. The washer/dryer was handy as I can do laundry easily. The location of the apt cannot be more central. It's 10 mins away from MTR and there are restaurants everywhere I turn. The security guards were courteous and made me feel safe. Because my stay was over a week, Astrid was kind enough to arrange a housekeeper to come in mid week. The big windows were my favorite feature of the apt. There is a lot of sunlight in every room. Space is a luxury in Hong Kong and the windows make the apt feel very spacious and open. Thank you for your hospitality and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Hong Kong.
Loved our stay at Astrid's place. Perfect location and very easy access in/out with the 24h concierge. Astrid was very helpful in organizing everything from extra towels to good tips of restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. Above expectations!
Let me start out by saying that Astrid was a wonderful host! She was extremely responsive and was always reachable just in case anything went wrong. She proactively provided my bf and I a document of how to get from the airport to her apartment, how much it would cost on cab or subway, how to obtain keys to her place, places to eat etc. She was also available via phone and text messages just in case something happened.
In terms of her apartment, the place was amazing! It was such a cute and clean space and central to everything in Hong Kong. The MTR (which is their subway system) was extremely close by and so were restaurants, Lan Kwai Fong (bar street), 7-Eleven and other grocery stores. Her room was nice and comfy with a soft bed and plenty of sunlight. Her apartment also had a wonderful view of the skyscrapers since it's located on one of the top floors of her building which has more than 40+ floors. I would definitely recommend staying at Astrid's place to anyone and would stay there again as well!
Congratulations! You've found the ideal place to stay in HK! Seriously, you can stop looking.
This was my first trip to HK. I spent five nights in Astrid's room and think it was the perfect choice because:
1. It's very easy to get to from the airport via the train + a short cab
2. It's super centrally located, just a few minutes walk from Soho, Lan Kwai Fong and local eateries.
3. It's 150m from the mid-level escalators so it's easy to get back to on foot without climbing the HK hills
4. There are a 7-11, a supermarket and a pharmacist within 20m of the front door. Other things too, both those are very useful.
5. Cab drivers know where it is, and it's a $20-35HKD trip from basically anywhere (e.g. 32 to the Star Ferry pier).
6. The room is big by HK standards: About 3x3m with a very comfortable double bed (v firm mattress, which I love) and space to keep your bags
7. The apartment has everything you need, is big and comfortable, and Atrid's 3 housemates are all very friendly, though we hardly saw each other due to differing timetables.
8. I don't know if I was sharing a bathroom. Even when the others were home it seemed I had on to myself. It was clean and had everything I needed.
9. There's a proper kitchen if you plan on cooking, but why you would in HK I cannot imagine!
10. Despite its proximity to everything there was no audible street noise and I slept like a baby!
11. Astrid was very helpful and communicative via email though we never met and never needed to. I got the keys from the clerk in reception and gave them back to the same clerk.
There were some renovations going on about the building when I stayed but they didn't disturb me. Nothing at night or early morning.
Next time I come back to HK, Astrid's place will be the first place I check for availability!
Location is perfect - in mid-levels and about 10 minutes from central walking (via escalators). Flat is spacious by HK standards and Astrid and room mates are great.
