We used to live in Horizon Suites hotel in Ma On Shan. At that time, there were shorter term lease arrangements that could be made.
However it seems, after recently inquiring for a guest, that they only offer 1 month minimum stays now. These days, it seems Horizon Suites Hotel is more or less exclusively for long-term (+1 month) stays and the bus loads of mainland Chinese tourists that come each week/weekend for travel packages to Hong Kong. During our visit last week we saw two bus loads of mainland tourists unload and file into Horizon as we talked to the front desk attendant.
You can sign up for up to 12 mth. stays here, making it a good option for short-term expats more interested in suburban community instead of the hustle and bustle of the city, 30-40 min. away by MTR (Ma On Shan - MTR) while the live/work in HK.
Because you can get very nice hotel rooms in HK, including the Hyatt-Shatin, just across the harbour, it is difficult to recommend Horizon Suite Hotel in Ma On Shan for hotel stay, even if you are coming for 1-2 mths.
However, if you have longer-term stay in Hong Kong for perhaps 6+ months and want a more suburban serviced apartment, Horizon in Ma On Shan isn't a bad option.
Rooms are well maintained and functional (a bit of an IKEA fill to them). Bath and showers worked well, there is a small Park-n-shop, a very nice outdoor pool overlooking Tolo harbour. They offer transport service to Central, TST, Diamond Hill and Shatin, also only 10-12 minute walk to the Ma On Shan MTR.
For this type of stay in Hong Kong, we recommend looking into the Horizon Suite in Ma On Shan as well as their Harbourview and Harbourfront facilities near Hung Hom. These two are more expensive due to their location close to Victoria Harbour.
