A nomad and avid traveler at heart.
Amy: A teacher for the past 7 years in Hong Kong.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Stayed for 2 weeks as a solo traveler - Amy was great host! She gave me a quick walkaround tour to familiarize myself with the local area, and left some refreshments in the fridge upon my arrival. She was easily accessible during my stay and very helpful with recommendations.
The unit is very cozy, as expected for HK, and the location is superb. Less than 10 minute walk to Wanchai MTR, and a 15 minute walk to Causeway Bay made it extremely convenient. I'll echo others' comments about the first set of stairs to the elevator, but it's not a big deal after you've arrived and settled in.
WiFi was a good, but sporadic at times - depending on the time of day and how many people in the building were using it, I suppose!
One word of note: because the bathroom doesn't have a sink, you'll have to use the "kitchenette" sink to brush teeth, wash face, shave, etc. If you shave old school, the mirror isn't above the sink so you'll have to get creative. I'd definitely stay here again when I return to HK.
The apartment was exactly as advertised. It was well equipped, well located and yes it was small, but fine for me (a large solo traveller). It would also accomodate a couple just as well.
Communication with Nathan was great.
I would stay there again.
Amy was not available to meet me but her fiancé Nathan gave very clear and easy to follow instructions on how to collect the keys for my arrival. In the building there are two flights of steps before you reach the lift so a little tricky with a large suitcase. However, property had secure access - requiring two codes - one for the main entrance and one for the little landing to the front door so felt safe there. The property itself was cozy - small but fairly standard in HK (fine for if you intend to be out and about for most the time and very conveniently located closely to MTR and Tram, but maybe a little cramped for more than one person). The property itself had a small shower and toilet room (no bathroom sink, just kitchen sink), then the bedsit/living space contained the double bed, wardrobe and sideboard, fridge freezer (stocked with very welcomed arrival drinks) and then a few kitchen items. Washing machine very handy and efficient and a drying rail was above the wardrobe. TV on sideboard had local channels. Iron available but no ironing board nor kettle, so minor improvisation required! The aircon was very efficient, and wifi access good. There was a cleaning issue upon arrival but Nathan was quick to respond to my query and very kind in resolving the problem in Amy’s absence.
Great location, and free wifi , even lots soda and beers in refrigerator!! the apt is small just like a typical apt in HK, but totally ok for one or two close couple.
Nathan is very kind and always willing to help, the only problem is i promised i would clean the room for him, and i did it with all my best.. but clearly we have different standard abt "Clean" ~ so ~ strongly suggest~ never promise u will clean the house for landlord(or anyone)~haha
though there was a misunderstanding abt the "clean issue" but i still recommend the place to everyone~ cause its really a cozy and convenient place in HK!!
This location is certainly "cozy" which is how it was advertised. Nathan and Amy - the owners - were exceptional in helping me get situated with the complexities of a Hong Kong apartment and a general overview of the neighborhood. The washing machine is great and the air conditioner works well. While there is a lift in the building you will need to climb a flight of stairs to get to it so be prepared for that if you pack too much. The bathroom is very cozy but fine. If I had been traveling with an additional person it would have been a little tight. Once again, it is as advertised and the hosts were very helpful.
Amy and Nathan were responsive, helpful, and easily contactable. The location is very convenient, and it was exactly the sort of place and price I needed for my short business trip.
The place is small but it has all the goodies:
Wifi, washer, bathroom, nearby transportation,
and friendly hosts. I got a special rate and
make it even better.
The downsize is that the room is not air tight:
there is a door gap opening behind a dress/closet...
And need to run the A/C a bit colder to offset the
heat in the summer.
L'accueil de Amy a été fort sympathique. L'appartement est petit mais confortable sans grande perspective extérieure. Le prix rejoint certains hôtels aux prestations confortables.
Nathan stayed in my guest room for 5 nights and he was a pleasant guest to have! He is easygoing, respectful, quiet, and great at communicating his plans. I would definitely host him again. Highly recommended!
