Chia J. Families with young children Malaysia, November 12, 2012
Great location and amenities

Almost everything you need to feel at home
We arrived with two children with a plan to use it as a base camp to go to Ocean Park. For the price we get ample space compared to a regular hotel room. It even comes with a computer (thin-client) connected to the large screen TV. Internet access and wi-fi is included, which is cool. You can even cook and wash dishes (provided) if you so desired. Management staff is friendly and provided travel tips. The location is not so hard to find if you come in by MRT. It is only 5-min walk from YauMaTei station. Just find Shanghai st. and follow the lot no. til you get to 279. Plenty of food stalls and restaurant on adjacent streets especially as night falls.

Modern, clean and near MTR station

More spacious than most Hong Kong hotels at similar prices, new rooms
The apartment was clean and new, which made it very comfortable for three people to stay in. Most amenities were provided, including toiletries, bedroom slippers and hairdryer. The only problem I encountered was using the washing machine. I wish they had included written instructions on how to operate the machine. After trying to turn some knobs in futile, I gave up trying to do my dirty laundry. The place is near a police station, so it is safe, although located in a quiet neighbourhood. Temple Street night market is at its doorstep, so we found it really convenient for buying things that we forgot to bring along. Try the mango pudding at Hui Lau San, which is just a few steps away from the hotel. It is awesome!
Restaurant Tip: Take some time to explore the neighbourhood. We didn't, until the last day of our stay and were pleasantly surprised to find a decent restaurant behind the hotel.

Great hotel with excellent location and service

location, space, security and service
this is my second time in hong kong and i am very glad i decided to book a suite at chi 279. the hotel was very accessible: it was close to the yau ma tei mtr, the bus stop, restaurants and grocery store. our room was very spacious and clean. my parents and i felt very safe since the access cards provided only allowed guests to their specific floor. the chi staff were helpful and friendly. will definitely stay again at this hotel.

Perfect apartment for a couple.

Apartment with everything you need. Very cozy and home-like feel.
I had a very late check in, the staff were very hospitable and friendly. I loved the apartment. It was well equipped and perfect for a couple's stay. The kitchen had everything you need. We were able to cook dinner on a night we decided to stay in. It was very cozy and home-like. Super clean and space was nicely laid out.

The unit was very clean and spacious. The hotel was conviently located (MTR is about a block) and the A21 bus to the Hong Kong Airport is about 2 block away on Nathan Road.

Big Place in a Great Location

Spacious, Clean & Great Location
Decided to book this place after reading all the great reviews online everywhere! And I was not disappointed! Must book fast! As there are only a few (20+) rooms in total... I recommend this place for longer stay (4 days at least) to enjoy the home-ly feel. I stayed for 7 nights. Location is about 5mins walk from YMD mtr. The room is big, clean & it comes with all the necessary utensils in the kitchenette area.. Only thing lacking is dish-washing liquid. House keeping was provided daily! So a clean room greeted me every night after a exhausted day out. Big bed, and spacious toilet. Only problem is the temperature of the water. During bathing, it kept fluctuating. I had to keep on tuning the temperature on the mixer. Free wifi is great. But having a smart tv makes it even sweeter! Save me the hassle of bring along a laptop. No doubt this place doesn't have the facilities of a hotel, yet can cost more. But, I truly enjoy my stay there, not missing the pool, gym, etc ... It's just like a 2nd home.
Hotel Feature Tip: Bring along some dish-washing liquid if you intend to do some cooking...

Great location

Location & facilities
This property is right by the Temple Street night markets and Nathan Road. The train is a few minutes walk away as well. The apartment was small but very clean and well fitted. The staff were extremely helpful and polite and went out of their way to find information for us.

Good hotel

Space is not big as pictures showing, but still better than 5 Stars hotel
We didn't use any of the room service. But the address of this hotel is hard to find, even you take the taxi.
