We had a one bedroom apartment, although we had booked a studio. The apartment was very comfortable and secure and the housekeeping was excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The position is excellent, close to the Yau Ma Tei metro station, a supermarket, Nathan Street and the Temple Street market. The free wifi was excellent. The only drawback... More

We've stayed at the CHI Residences before and didn't hesitate to book again, thanks to its great location. Johnny, the daytime manager, was there to greet us again - what an asset to the business he is! Although our apartment was different from last time, it was every bit as good - spotlessly clean, great wifi connection, complimentary bottled water... More

Clean, tidy, serviced daily, bottled water provided, free wi-fi, elevator, large shower, kitchen well equipped, however so many places to eat... More

I was looking for a serviced apartment in Kowloon and CHI 279 was a perfect choice. I stayed with my wife and a kid for 3 nights and we all enjoyed the stay. This apartment is just 5 mins walk from Yau Ma Tei MTR. The Jade market and Temple Street Night Market is also within 5 mins walk. They... More

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

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
