About this listing
In the heart of Sai Ying Pun, very close to the metro and walking distance from Soho, this comfortable one bedroom apartment on the first floor is situated in a charming neighborhood with many new restaurants and shops as well as traditional markets.
Although located in a old building that doesn't look very fresh from the outside, the flat is comfortable and the decoration is modern. There is a very convenient kitchen as well as large dining room table. Lastly, the front sliding window can open up fully which makes it a unique experience. You can drink your tea or have a glass of wine al fresco perched on a bar stool whilst gazing at the whole neighborhood.
There is no guardian, simply a door code to access the building. You can use the lift although it is a little old. The flat is only on the first floor so you can use the stairs if you want.
Interaction with guests
I will not be around but a friend of mine will meet with you to give you the keys. He will also be able to make recommendations and give you tips if you need anything. I have also a range of guides and hiking books with fantastic walking tours you can borrow. Lastly, I can leave the numbers of a few friends willing to give advice if needed.
This traditional neighborhood has been transformed in the last five years with the construction of an outside escalators that has revitalized the entire area. Of course, the recently opened metro stations make the neighbourhood very accessible. There are a wide choice of newly restaurants and bars as well as more traditional eateries just down the street.
The new Metro station (MTR) a stone throw away from the flat makes it very easy to travel around. Visitors can also easily walk to the districts of Sheung Wan, Soho ad Lan Kwai Fong. (15 minutes).
I advise you to use the Bonham road exit so you don't have to walk uphill.
Other things to note
The neighbours have two dogs that may bark when you enter or exit the flat but they are actually very nice and are normally very quiet the rest of the time.
No smoking, no pets and no high heel shoes to preserve the wooden floor. Guests are kindly asked to take off their shoes. Please also take out the trash, the trash can is situated in the corridor. Lastly, please clean up before you leave. It would be helpful if you left the sheets and the towel on the floor.
