A new refurbished 1-bed flat + rooftop in the midst of HK's most interesting locale. Brand new fittings and furnishings, great transport links, elevator and all mod cons. Don't miss out!

The space

This is a great, newly refurbished apartment in Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong's coolest up-and-coming area.

We spent a lot of time, effort and love on this upgrade of an old flat, and think we succeeded. We even installed a real oven! (Rare in HK)

It's small (300 sq ft + 250 sq ft rooftop), but perfectly suitable for a single, couple or even four people, with a sofabed also available to use. There's a good size lounge area attached to an open kitchen, a fully fitted bathroom, a bedroom and a rooftop. Our rooftop is attached to the same level of the flat, so no leaving the flat and climbing stairs to get there, unlike a lot of places in HK.

Location is fantastic - one-minute walk to HKU MTR (three stops (7-8 minutes) to Central), or find taxis, buses and trams just a 2-3 minute walk away. There are shops, cafes and restaurants (both local and international) all within a couple minutes' walk.

Hong Kong University is right next door, so the area is pretty young and vibrant.

In summary:

- 1 minute to MTR, trams, buses and taxis and just 3 MTR stops from Central. Super-ultra-convenient!
- Totally renovated place with all new mod cons and amenities.
- Everything included: crockery, cutlery, bed linen, towels, Nespresso machine, glassware, fridge, washing machine (with semi-dry function for quick drying), TV and DVD player.
- Fast wi-fi.
- Very nice (and rare) rooftop, with seating and table for drinks, lunches etc.
- All safety features, including smoke detector.
- Child-friendly paints and design aspects.
- Security guards in the lobby.
- Really fascinating location, full of Hong Kong life. Go out and explore!

Great little apartment in a very central area. Very close to the MTR station which makes travelling to different neighbourhoods in HK a breeze. The area is fab - it's got lots of great coffee shops and restaurants. Loved it here!

The apartment is in a perfect location - just across the street from an MTR entrance, and just round the corner from a tram stop. Plenty of shops and restaurants right outside - we would recommend the Thai restaurant in the cooked food floor at the top of the Shek Tong Tsui Government Market. Lots of trendy bars and restaurants a short walk away in Kennedy Town now as well. Everything needed was provided in the apartment, with some extra thoughtful touches like first aid box, spare computer cables, umbrella etc. James met us when we arrived and was very helpful explaining how things worked in the flat, and the local attractions. Everything was clean and homely, and the outside terrace was a real bonus. We would wholeheartedly recommend the apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Hong Kong. You will not be disappointed.

I had three great nights at James and Rebeccas hong kong flat and i hope to enjoy it many times again in the future. The communication was excellent and very smooth check-in and check-out. The flat is located very very close to HKU metro station, 7-11 around the corner and also ”welcome” supermarket and that makes every day so much easier. It was super easy to find the location of the apartment. Strongly recommend it!!
