Reviews of this property
Vermieter kam zum Ein- u. Auschecken jeweils über eine halbe Stunde zu spät....
Zimmer war sauber u. modernisiert, leider war keine Küche oder Waschmaschine gemäß Angebot vorhanden....
Der Preis war allerdings in Ordnung!
Perfekt für junge Leute, die im Prinzip nur eine günstige Unterkunft suchen.... ohne viel Schnickschnack!
Description (a bedroom and a living room) and the surface of the housing were false. The place where we arrived was also very dirty and very noisy. In short, not at all suitable for a couple with two young children while the opposite was said by the host via email prior to booking. We were able to change to another apartment more surcharge while the least we would have been free to make the change ... The organization on the day of our arrival was as bad as our host took over an hour to pick us up at our bus stop. We had however warned the hour of our arrival. The towels were a real joke too. I asked (again by email before booking) if the towels were provided. Yes Has it answered. On site, there was indeed a towel (for 4!) I had to ask for more towels. With new towels were never washed so they are not usable. I absolutely do not recommend it. It is better to pay a little more and get a hotel ultimately
Le descriptif (une chambre et une salle de séjour) ainsi que la surface du logement étaient mensongers.
L'endroit dans lequel nous sommes arrivés était en plus très sale et très bruyant.
Bref, pas du tout adapté à un couple avec deux enfants en bas âge alors que le contraire avait été affirmé par l'hôte par email avant d'effectuer la réservation.
Nous avons pu changer d'appartement pour un autre plus grand moyennant un supplément alors que la moindre des choses aurait été d'effectuer le changement gratuitement...
L'organisation le jour de notre arrivée a été catastrophique aussi car notre hôte a mis plus d'une heure pour venir nous chercher à notre arrêt de bus.
Nous l'avions pourtant prévenu de l'heure de notre arrivée.
Les serviettes de toilette ont été un vrai gag aussi. J'avais demandé (toujours par email avant de réserver) si les serviettes étaient fournies. Oui m'a-t-on répondu.
Sur place, il y avait en effet une serviette (pour 4 !!)
J'ai dû réclamer pour avoir d'autres serviettes. Des serviettes neuves n'ayant jamais été lavées donc non utilisables.
Je ne recommande absolument pas. Il vaut mieux payer un peu plus et avoir un hôtel en fin de compte
Reviews for this host's other properties
This apartment was booked for our stay however we moved to a different apartment a little time later. Since we were there quite some time, I'll factor in all the positives and negatives in this review. HongKong apartments are small and designed to fit more people in lesser space, but we didn't expect this tiny of an apartment. It was the four of us in the apartment and we couldn't fit in the "family" room (it is not like we're giants). The house is equipped with basic necessities including: a washing machine, water heater, stove, Television and internet. The kitchen in the house was designed to fit just one person as it was compact after the washing machine and water heater was stationed in there. There was a 'Master' bedroom and a 'kids' bedroom that had a double bed and bunk beds respectively. The beds can't accommodate for a human that's taller than 6 feet, like myself. The bunks were decent in size. The sofa shown in the picture was exaggerated as it could, at maximum, seat 1.5 of a human. There's absolutely no space to stand in the bathroom as the toilet seat is placed right next to it. Overall the house was furnished with all the basic essentials, however there isn't sufficient space to place everything. That's the inside of the house.
The apartment was located on Floor 18 (i think, it was high up), right in front of the Ladies Market, which could prove to be noisy if you're staying in the lower floors. The house is within walking distance of MANY good restaurants and retailers too. (Make sure you bargain). The house is within 5 minute walking distance from Yau Ma Tei MTR Station which is pretty good as we used the trains everyday through our stay. The Rail Network in HongKong is beyond great, it wouldn't let you down, however, don't be disheartened if you dont find a seat. Overall, this house is situated at one of the best locations and it's highly recommended to book this apartment if you're only going to spend the nights, not otherwise.
The owner of the house are generally nice and they got us cheaper tickets to OceanPark.
Great location in Kowloon which is the real Hong Kong, place was small but that was ok, a lot of junk left in room as it had beds for many more people - washing machine was leaking when we arrived, host cleaned it up but let and it was still leaking , probably much better places to stay
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
Kitty was being very helpful by finding us the apartment where we stayed .The apartment, for a family of 5 which we stayed in, was brilliantly located in the heart of yau ma tei, by being right outside across the underground station and close to alot of shops and restaurants. The apartment itself was fully equipped with household facilities and a strong free wifi. I would definitely stay here again next time as my stay was very pleasant.
You can't beat the location of this apartment - just minutes away from Mongkok station. In the evening you can wander in almost any direction and find good food and good shopping.
Will and Kitty were great hosts - very accommodating and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again in the future!
We book this unit as early as July of this year for October 27 on the morning of October 27 waiting for my flight to hongkong I checked my cell phone and to my surprise will messages me on October 26 around 11 pm and informed me that i will be transferred to a different location I felt i was cheated intentionally, he told me the occupants had an emergency and had to stay for couple of days well my point is that the occupants should be the one's to be transfered I paid for this unit precisely because of the location when we arrived at manming lane hk I preasured them to give us the unit and we were able to stay in the apartment but imagine the stress i have to go through I will never deal with them again very unprofessional.
Good stuff: 1). Host was friendly, responsive & helpful to some extent.
Location was great as it was 10-12 min walk to the MTR and next to the airport bus stand.
Some facts (I have most of the pic as proof)
a) The door mat was old, dusty and torn out in the middle.
b) one of the 2 sofa was so bad that they had to be covered with a cloth
c) The broken shower handle was never changed. You will have to take shower standing in 1 Sq Ft of area touching the toilet stuff. This is also because the shower was small. We have to move around rather than move the shower handle.
d) the biggest problem is the hot n cold water mix system. You have to balance your shower time between maneuvering your posting with the shower and mixing hot n cold water. There are two hot/cold water mix knobs which are to be constantly mixed to get warm water.
e) There were no towels given to us. I am 100% sure that the bed sheets were never washed.they are reused. I will request the owner to buy new bed and pillow sheets.
f) No one time cleaning shops or tolietteries are given
g) The Kitchen is disappointing: -> It seems they never changed the cooking utensils since the apartment started. They are all black and burnt. -> There are no serving spoon. -> One of the gas burner is bit of a struggle and i had complained about that. -> You will get one Sq ft if area to cook, wash dishes, Clean cloths in WM and the fridge. -> The kitchen water tap was never changed. You will get another round of shower because of the sudden water pressure from low to instant high. -> You will find used plastic spoons -> You will no dish washing liquid. They have put toilet left over soaps to be used for cleaning kitchen utensils. They will tell you to buy. -> The cleaning sponges are horribly used and reused. It is a reservoir of bacteria and germs.
g). The passage from the lift to the room will small leftover of dogs as there is one in the next door.
h) Beds: I am 5.9" and I had to sleep diagonally because of the bed length.
i) No Iron for your cloths.
j) They will not give you any thing as complementary. Not even one time drinking water.
I will not recommend anything but go by facts.
Overall satisfied with this, location, availability of loueur.Mais it was not the slot, much smaller and in worse condition than did glimpse the pictures.
Relatively quiet given its location (right ladies market).
For Westerners that we are the spaces are really small: we were a family of five, but behind us arrived from Asian to 7, it did not seem to bother them.
It is a question of organization and better we understand why they do not eat at home ...
Globalement satisfait de cette location,emplacement,disponibilité du loueur.Mais ce n’était pas le logement prévu,un peu plus petit et en moins bon état que le faisait entrevoir les photos.
Relativement calme au vu de son emplacement (en plein ladies market).
Pour les occidentaux que nous sommes les espaces sont vraiment restreints:nous étions une famille de cinq,mais derrière nous sont arrivés des asiatiques à 7,ça n'avait pas l'air de les gêner.
C'est une question d'organisation et on comprend mieux pourquoi ils ne mangent pas chez eux...
