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

Stayed here last August 2011 with my family for 3 days and 2 nights. Well ventilated, well decorated and very friendly staff. Near MRT. 5 minute walk from the hotel. Hawkers at night.We really loved our stay. They also have a kitchenette and very comfortable bed. Recommended for family travellers.

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

Stayed there for 5 nights in December. A little pricey but we were there for New Year countdown so everywhere else was equally expensive and paying a little more, we got to stay in this one-room compact service apartment with a mini kitchen. Location is excellent, 5 minutes from Yau Ma Tei MTR and a street away from Temple Street... More

We recently stayed at CHI 279 for three nights. Excellent location. Very close to railway. The staff were very attentive and polite. Housekeeping were very efficient. Free WiFi which is always a bonus. Two things let it down though. We asked for an extra blanket and were charged 100 HK dollars per night which we thought was totally unwarranted. When... More
