Review: Airbnb Stay in HongKong
Price? S$305 for 4 nights, via airbnb.com.sg/rooms/1490502
When? 4 days, January 2014
Accommodation Type? Room. The owner, Tak Seng, has a few rooms. And I stayed in Room B. Apparently one of the smaller rooms. See his all listings under him to find the room size that best suits your travelling party.
Our Experience: Tak Seng was very prompt in his responses before the trip. I never got to meet him throughout the stay, but he emailed detailed directions to his place and clear instructions for the check in and out.
What say us? “Small, but well-equipped”
✔ The room is indeed as what others have commented – 麻雀虽小, 五脏俱全. It had everything for a comfortable stay – Clean sheets, warm blankets, ensuite bathroom, slippers, television, kettle, cups, hairdryer, air-conditioning, etc. Best of all, strong wifi signal! ;)
✔ Location wise, it was perfect. It was in the heart of Mong Kok and all the popular spots are within walking distance. Best of all, it is near to the MTR station and you can easily travel around Hong Kong via the MTR. It was very convenient coming from the airport as well, the bus stops to and from airport are all just a short distance away.
✘ One thing to note is the size of the room (as mentioned by many who have stayed there before) – It is small. It is perfect for the lone traveller, but might be a squeeze for 2, especially if you have 2 pieces of big luggage.
✘ A couple of suggestions – a full length mirror and tissue box (other than the toilet roll) in the room and more English TV channels. :P
Recommended? I would highly recommend this place for a short visit to Hong Kong, especially if you’re travelling alone. If in two, I suggest you get one of their bigger rooms or 2 small rooms. ;)
