Great flat in a perfect position. Very clean and comfortable. And julian is very helpful for everything. Thank you again Julian!
The apartment was roomy and spacious by Hong Kong standards with a decent kitchen, a washing machine and a bathroom with a proper shower. Laurence was very helpful in waiting for us (in the cold!) and showing us around the apartment and Julian also answered all our queries quickly. As mentioned by others, wifi was fast with no drop-outs and we were located very close to the tram station and bus stops with the MTR another 5-7 mins walk. Downstairs, there's a lot of eateries around so you never have to travel far for a meal. The only issue we had was with the cleanliness but to be fair, we had just come from Singapore, the land of extreme clean :)
The flat is located in Wanchai, in a very convenient location. It is within a few minutes walk to the nearest Metro station. The street where the flat is located is full of restaurants and one need not worry at all for lack of food or choice of restaurants, both local or western style. The flat is good for single or a couple as it is rather small but not unusual for Hong Kong standards. Wifi is fast and easy to connect.
Julian's apartment is quite big for HK standards, fit 3 of us very well. The washing machine, fridge, electric pot, and microwave oven were very useful for our 8-day stay.
The neighbourhood in Wan Chai is really great, everything you need is just around the corner. Plenty of good food around, has 2 MTR stations less than 10-minutes away, grocery store and post office 5-minutes away, bus stop 2-minutes away.
Julian wasn't around but got his friend Nancy to show us around the apartment and help us settle down. They both responded quickly to all my texts and emails.
Why choose airbnb over a hotel rental? This place is the perfect example :)
Great apartment~ Clean and tidy. Better than hotel, you can get everything you can think of , it's super convenient. The location is great , it's easy for you to get to different places. And the building is perfectly safe and secure~~ In addition , Julian is super nice , we had a pleasent stay there. Next time I come to HongKong, I will live in his sweet apartment again.
The instructions provided by Julian is really clear.
He sent a couple of emails with his contact details as well as his friend's contact just in case he wasn't around. That alone shows how responsible a host he is.
The apartment is as shown in the picture, bathroom was good with hot water.
The environment is good with 7-11 and MTR just stone's throw away.
Overall will surely recommend this place!
Location is central to a lot of interesting places. From the apartment, we walked to the Star Ferry, the world's longest escalator, the funicular up to Victoria Peak, and the Man Mo temple. We could have just as easily caught a taxi, but the walking was nice. The area seemed safe and clean. Julian was a great host, oriented us, and worked overtime on fixing the internet when it stopped working. Would definitely stay here again.
Very good location and the place itself is nice too. Julian was very welcoming and accommodating. He met us outside by the cab and showed us to the apartment. Whenever we had questions about the area or the place he was very responsive and helpful. Would definitely at his place again.
The location was perfect. and very close to the tram, which we used a lot. It was also within easy walking distance to both Wan Chai and Admiralty stations for the MTR. We were met by Nancy, who was very friendly and helpful and was not in a hurry to get away even though we were nearly an hour late. She gave us directions on getting buses, trams and trains, told us that there was a supermarket around the corner, etc
Communication beforehand was excellent, and both Julian and Nancy were very quick to answer our emailed queries. Julian responded promptly to our needs during our stay via email. Everything in the unit was in good, working order, including the air-conditioning (which was much appreciated). The internet worked well (good speed and no drop-out ), after a bit of a fiddle and following the written instructions left by Julian. Our 10 day stay was very comfortable.
Julian was easily accessible over phone and whatsapp. I did not get to meet him, but the instructions to the flat and in the flat were very clear and easy to follow.
Nancy was there to meet us and show the flat on day one thereafter we enjoyed the flat like our own home in HK!
The flat is small. The bedroom has a nice queen sized bed, but that is about it. Nothing else fits in.
The living room has a sofa and a big TV( was a hit with the kids). A small dining table for 2 makes the rest. Extra mattresses and sleeping bags meant the kids could sleep in the living room without any problem. Must mention that both the rooms have very effective ACs. There is a dehumidifier and heater also provided.
Barring the size, everything else was perfect! the kitchen had everything we needed and more ( toaster, micro, oven, water boiler, gas stove, pots, pans plates and glasses). The bathroom is just right with hot water available 24/7.
The building is safe and secure.
Most of all if you don't know HK, this is a very posh part of town. Very well connected and with some lovely restaurants ( try Urawa -on the same road - probably the best Japanese food in town).
All in all I would recommend it for any family with kids who want to live in a good house in a safe area and a wonderful host. Thanks Julian :-)
todo bien! Gracias.
Julian is a nice guy and i had no problems comunicating with him , he did check-in and check-out on time.
