I was advised by friends to stay in the Kowloon area to get a more authentic HKG experience. CHI 279 is more a residential apartment and it worked very well for me. Shanghai Street on this block is not really commercial; it's restaurant supply stores, so it is very quiet in the evening. Temple Street is a block down and... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in 2014. We thought this hotel was great. Likes:- The hotel is at a great location. It's just 5 mins walk from Yau Ma Tei MTR. The hotel is along Shangai Street which is parallel to Temple Street and the night market. There are lots of good food around... More

We took a cab from the ferry since we arrived from Macau and the cab took us to the wrong hotel 2 streets up. We still do not understand how the cab could miss this hotel on Shanghai even after we gave him the official Chinese address. Outside is not really fancy but the area is part of the huge... More

Hotel is conveniently located next to Temple street. There is a Hui Lau Shan cafe a few units down the street. If you like to buy some snacks there are 2 convenient stalls located nearby. We found it easy to take a cab to areas like Mongkok and Jordan without being caught in the jam. And the fare is so... More

Near to the MTR station of Yau Ma Tei on Shanghai Road, just behind the very long shopping street of Nathan Road. The building itself doesn't look much but once inside the decor is more than fine. We arrived around 7pm. Check in was slightly haphazard and as our room was being right next to the check-in area we missed... More

Lovely and helpful staff provided a relatively easy check in and out process. They were friendly with recommendations aplenty when asked. Our apartment was compact but perfectly functional, with a double bedroom which included a large wardrobe that would be perfect for longer stays, a kitchenette with a basic assortment of kitchen essentials and bathroom featuring a large shower room....

We loved our stay at CHI Residences 279, it was pleasant right from the start - the service staff Ray was very friendly, and we had personalised notes waiting for us in our apartment telling us where to locate amenities and how to connect to the all-important wifi. With a living room, kitchenette and bedroom spanning 60sqm, it was a... More

We stayed at Chi 279 for 3 nights. For 4 adults and Chi management recommend we book two rooms. The price was fair, a little bit more then what I would normally pay. However, it was a great decision. They are very courteous and answered all our questions. Very help! Zoe who was our housekeeper was great!! Kudos to everyone... More
