Overview

Photos and Description of this Sai Ying Pun holiday apartment

Apartment in Hong Kong Island, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Located near the Hong Kong University Campus and situated nicely in the city with public transport available nearby apartment to get all over Hong Kong. This 2 bedroom is the perfect place to stay to get some nice quiet time after a busy day in city

A great offer for this fabulous location near mid levels.

This 2 bedroom flat offers a large comfy double bed in each room, FREE Wifi, hair dryer, large LCD TV with entertainment DVD system. The building has an elevator direct to the apartment with just a few steps to the lobby area.

Located on High Street in a laid back area and has rapidly become a hip area hosting many of the city's most creative types, it takes 8 minutes/$5 USD cab ride or 15 minutes by foot to Central. There is a 7-11 convenience store just across the street. The area is a melting pot of East meets West, with older chinese traditional buildings being surrounded by high end new luxurious developments with new restaurants, nice coffee shops, banking, shops popping up all the time.

Transport is very easy through the nearby tram, buses and minibuses. Of course, the taxis in Hong Kong are most convenient and very cheap compared to other big cities like New York and London.

Guest Access

Guests have access to:

- FREE WiFi

- Cable TV

- Hair Dryer

- Iron/Ironing Board

- Microwave, Hot Water Boiler, Cooker

- Towels, Sheets, Toilet Paper, Shampoo, Soap, etc.

Interaction with Guests

As much as possible or invisible if you want. I will try to meet with arriving guests and show them the area. Whenever guests need information or recommendations, I am always available via messaging or phone.

Other Things to Note

Once you arrive in Hong Kong, everything is quite simple and all starts with a call from the FREE phones at the airport located in the hall immediately after you pass through baggage customs. There is also a Visitors Center there if you would like to pick up some maps, local travel guides, etc. to read on your way to the apartment. If you need a local SIM card, there is a 7-11 in the middle section of the main arrival hall where they see all types of SIM cards, I usually prefer the PCCW brand as it is the larges local operator.

House Rules: This is a Strictly NON SMOKING Flat.

UPON ARRIVAL AT PROPERTY, ALL GUESTS MUST WAIT FOR ME AT THE FRONT GATE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. BUILDING RESIDENTS WILL COMPLAIN TO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT IF THE LOBBY AREA INSIDE BUILDING IS BLOCKED. THANKS FOR YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY.

Check in time is AFTER 12:30 pm. Make sure to contact us by phone at least 30 minutes prior to arrival such that we can meet you at the flat to hand you the keys and acquaint you to the surroundings. As this is a family business, please try your best to arrive at the apartment as early as possible. After 11:30pm as transport to the apartment is limited for us, we have to charge HKD100 to cover our taxi transport cost to and from the apartment. We are generally exhausted at the end of the day and we really would rather you arrive early and not have to charge this.

Guests must wait for us OUTSIDE the building upon arrival and not enter the building without us as this causes unnecessary misunderstandings with the property management and residents of the buildings.

Check out time is STRICT at 11:00 am. NO EXCEPTIONS or you will be charged for an extra full day. Our cleaning crew will arrive at 11:00 am to service the flat for the next guest, thanks for your cooperation.

Please help us save the environment by turning off electrical appliances when leaving the apartment or not using them.

Water heater needs to be turned off when not using. If it breaks due to prolonged time left on, you will not have any hot water for your stay and will be subject to expensive repair charges.

In the case that you have an evening departure flight:

Please note that you can check in your luggage at anytime during the same day as your flight at the Hong Kong Station Airport Express, which is only a 5 minute taxi or bus ride from the apartment. That way you would be free to explore the city on your last day, not having to worry about your luggage or rushing to the airport since you have already checked in, you will not have to be at the airport as early as everyone else.

All airlines flying from Hong Kong airport offer In Town check in, EXCEPT the following:

Air Philippines

Angel Air

Cebu Pacific

Jetstar Asia Airlines

Oriental Thai

Pakistan International

Transaero

We had a great trip visiting our son who is a student at HKU. We stayed in this apartment (and since our son was on his school vacation he stayed there too) and it was plenty big enough for the 3 of us.

The apartment was nicely located near the MTR, so we were able to easily get to all the sites.

Apartment was also near many restaurants that were easy to walk to.

Jason was easy to work with and very responsive to our questions.

Highly recommend.

Three of us arrived in the evening from Beijing. Jason was easy to contact and organised for us to get in to the apartment straight away. We found the apartment a tad small, but for three adults it was fine. The location is fantastic, the air-conditioning a blessing in the middle of summer, and the shower great! For those with heavy bags, there are a few stairs to conquer before you get to the lift. We found restaurants, Metro, supermarkets, buses and taxis all within easy reach. Happy to recommend this well placed, clean, convenient apartment.

We (3 people from Netherlands) had a very pleasant stay in Jason's appt. It is not too big but I guess none of the appts in HK are in this price range. Not more than 2 mins walking to metro, restaurants and taxi. Wifi is excellent. Jason is very helpful and responds quickly. Neighbourhood is good mix of local and foreign.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with private rental via internet and it was great. Booking process and communication with the host was easy. The flat was small compared to what we are used to but we were told by the locals that this is what all HK flats are like. The flat itself is not 5-star luxury but had everything we needed, was clean and tidy, everything worked without any problems and the kitchen was well equipped. No weird smells or noises, beds comfy, wifi fast. Location very convenient - a short walk to MTR and from there two stops and you are in Central. A few restaurants and grocery shops nearby. Overall, a very enjoyable stay!

The flat is much smaller than we expected, but it's great and what we soon realized is huge for Hong Kong. It's located right by the station and in a new up and coming area which is even better. High street has a lot of newer restaurants and tons of fresh markets. Location is close to everything and only 10 min mtr to central and wan chai!

We enjoyed staying in Jason's apartment. It was situated very well as the MTR is just two streets over. We did not meet Jason but his mother let us into the apartment and told us everything we needed to know about the apartment.
