I am originally from Taiwan but have lived in Hong Kong for the past 10 years. I am an outdoor person and former professional athlete :-)
Benny was a very attentive host. We arrived at the apartment to a cheerful lady who left us the keys to a very clean apartment. The apartment looked exactly as the photos shown ,giving us a very HK vibe. Best thing about the apartment was the location. Which provided a fantastic view of the iconic mid level escalators. It is walking distance to 2 mtr stations and the ferry terminal to Macau. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable (website hidden) / Benny was very understanding and allowed us a late check out.
Great location!! Good communication:) highly recommend!
I am a traveler from Korea. Firstly I was nervious because of it is my first rent house.But it was changed quickly because of benny's kindness. I love benny house especially location. I could go everywhere fastly. And l really love lovely restaurant which is in front of benny house! Thanks benny!
Our experience was great! Everything was right. It was clean, and it had everything you would need in a short stay: towels, kitchen tools... We had a pleasant stay! We would definitely come back there. Would definitely recommend.
Couldn't ask for a better location in HK or a better more affable host. In a cool neighborhood steps away from a bunch of wonderful restaurants, cafes, markets, shops, galleries etc.. Also right next to the mid level escalator, easy to find and central to many attractions.15 minute walk to Star Ferry or airport express. Place itself is a bit spartan but charming, minimal kitchen but usable, basically one large room + tiny bath, But lots of light (on 4th floor), good views, and well laid out. Nice selection of DVD movies. Enjoyed it! Enough space for a couple to spread out for a couple of days. Nearby watering holes close early, so place is quiet at night and easy to sleep in. Benny is hugely helpful, smart, and friendly with tips and travel advice via text...only downsides are four rather grim flights of stairs to access and no separate shower: You bathe with nozzle in (email hidden)ill great value over expensive hotels and this is in a more interesting area, closer to the "real Hong Kong."..We would stay there again in a heartbeat...Highest recommendation if you're willing to rough it just a little bit!!
Absolutely perfect location. We are 2 girls who were interested in walking around, shopping and nightlife. We couldn't have asked for a better location to do so. It is a bit of a walk up, and it is a typical Hong Kong bathroom. But the apt is clean, and Benny is a lovely host. A hotel in this neighborhood would be at least double the price. Highly recommend! I will come back when in Hong Kong :) thank you!
Ideal location!!! And a great place. Perfetct facilities and Benny is a gracious host. I can't wait to be back!
Perfect location, well organized communication with host Benny, easy to reach via the escalator. Very good place, very recommendable.
During our stay, internet was not working (due to street works), and TV reception was not so good. But Benny has a good collection of DVDs and one does not really need the TV.
I enjoyed staying at Benny's place. Convenient, great location and good food in the area. It is loud at night, but that's to be expected since it's right by a ton of bars and restaurants. The apartment is cozy, but that's also to be expected in HK. I was comfy.
The only downside was that the wifi was out, which was ok since I had a local phone. Benny did tell me before I arrived, but after I booked.
Overall it was a good experience.
We stayed at Benny's studio for three nights last weekend and had a great time. The location cannot be beat. It is right on the mid levels escalator in the most likely part of Soho. Right across the street there are several great pubs and it is easy walking distance to Wyndham street and Lan Kwai Fong for nightlife. Good shopping in the area and also great restaurants.
Benny is very tuned in and extremely easy to contact if you have questions. He responded to every email we sent him usually in less than an hour.
The apartment is exactly as advertised, it is cozy and comfortable and the price is right. It is very easy to get there and find it on the first day. It is a walk up so you need to go up a couple flights of stairs but that is to be expected and really not a problem. Would definitely stay here again.
