“Very comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Location is bit out at Sai Ying Pun (Central West) but if you want a good local experience then this is a good part of town, only a short taxi trip from the rest of the action. The apartments are a good size, with excellent view of the harbour (ask for a high floor to optimise). Huge proper king size bed looking out the window. Basic kitchen but all you need for breakfast cooking. Will be my choice for next trip!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Came here fourth of July weekend. We had a habour view room. The view was great, the bed faces the big window that looks toward the harbour. The apartment is pretty big, very clean and comfortable. the slight minus is that it's about 15 walk from the nearest MTR station Sheung Wan. However we were able to catch the free airport express shuttle to Best Western Harbour View, which is a couple blocks from the hotel.

A 15 min walk to MTR station at the very far end of the MTR line. Not the number 1 location but fair enough.
It's a serviced apartment so the size of the room is pretty big in Hong Kong's standard.

The room is well decorated and well lit.
Just that it was not very well cleaned. The dinning table was sticky (so I have to clean it myself before using it)
The cushion of the coach/ sofa area at the window sill is dirty. You can see stain and hair on it (and you won't want to imagine what have been done on it)

The view is great as they have given us a high floor room. However, as mentioned, the cushion is pretty dirty so we could only enjoy the view on the bed.

The kitchen is very well equipped. The coffee machine works well (doesn't have all the capsules they promised though)

The shower is great in the sense of water temperature and pressure.

It took us more than 20 min to check out. I guess they need a long time to check if everything is in a good condition...

Room Tip: Ask for high floor for better view

A friend introduced this place, CHI Residence 138 located at Connaught Road West, Sai Ying Pun, Western District, Hong Kong. To our surprise, it is spacious, clean and has good view of the harbour. Also it has a kitchen equipped with utensils, fridge, and surprisingly a capsule coffee machine. The wardrobes have good hangers and also a steam iron together with ironing board. The modern designed bathroom is clean and spacious with option of rain shower or hand shower. Also not forgetting clean bath and hand towels and toiletries. Indeed highly recommended and value for money.
Due to our short stay, we did not have time to visit the gym. But the rooftop garden allowed us to have breathtaking views of the surrounding areas both during the day and night. But most of all, the services were good too.

  • Liked — Overall cleanliness and space
  • Disliked — Heavy glass door separating living room and bathroom

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We stayed at Chi Residences 138 in April 2014 for 1 night as we had a floor maintenance at home. It is a bit off from the Sheung Wan MTR station but there are buses, tram and minibuses to the Des Voeux Road West which is the road just right behind the serviced apartment. It may takes around 10-15 mins to the Sheung Wan MTR station by walking. Surprisingly, the room is very spacious with living room, small kitchen, a large bathroom and a bedroom facing the harbour. Closets and cabinets are more than enough if you plan for longer stay. They have an electric stove and coffee machine. Kitchenware is enough for simple cooking. Area nearby is old district and dried seafood market. And you can walk to Hollywood Road if you know the direction for antiques and gallery shopping and visit some west Soho restaurants. The room rate was definitely reasonable for having a big room and harbour view. Although the serviced apartment is facing a busy highway, it was quite quiet inside the room. Recommend for tourists who don't mind walking a little bit and like to discover the city in different way.

Room Tip: Higher floor may have better view to the Harbour

A very beautiful and pleasant stay. The room was huge and clean. It has a fantastic sea facing too! It came with a nice kitchen, couch and working desk. The check in and out was fairly quick although they do not have a nice lounge or waiting area.
However the disadvantages are the MTR is really a distant away and there are no great shopping centers around it. I definitely would like to stay there again but the draw back is still the distant to the TMR.

Double the space at a third of the price of a typical 5-star hotel in Central makes this serviced apartment seriously good value for money.

But there are definitely some flaws. Cleanliness is acceptable but not perfect. The couch and cushions had a slightly stale odour, which I solved by buying some fabric/room spray. Neither was the lobby area in the best condition. Also we found the in-room airconditioning very loud and either too cold or not cold enough.

The main positives are the great unblocked view, and overall spaciousness in a city where even top hotels can be claustrophobic.

All-in-all, this place made the cut as somewhere we could return to, but probably not before sampling other options first.
