“Fantastic if you can afford it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We stayed here for six weeks, minimum rental is one month. We had a two bedroom suite, which had two bathrooms and (by HK serviced apartment standards) a good kitchen...we probably ate in at least 60% in evening b/c we travelled with kids. There is a good washer-dryer, which we used a lot. The kitchen is also fitted out with a fridge/freezer, induction cooktop, Fissler cookware, decent range hood, and an oven/microwave. The master bedroom and ensuite bathroom are a good size, and the second bedroom had two single beds and was comfortable for our kids. The service is excellent; they will get alternate cutlery and crockery if you require it, and happily provide additional hangers. There is also reasonable amount of storage space in the bedrooms. The 50th floor has a coffee lounge and a separate laundry area (with much larger washers and dryers if you need it) but we didn't use these much as we were happy with what was provided in the apartment. The best thing is residents have free access to the rooftop pool of the W Hotel (in same building, different lift well) on the 76th floor. There is also free wifi, which one would expect at these prices.
Being on top of Elements mall, Kowloon MTR station (one stop to Central), Airport Express ststion and a decent supermarket (360), it is super convenient. The mall has mostly high end brand clothing shops, but also a very good bookshop (Metro), electronics (Fortress and Broadway), Starbucks, a pharmacy (Mannings) and a good range of places to eat. Also an HMV if you want to buy CDs or DVDs to play in the apartment.
There is no direct way to Tsim Tsa Tsui by MTR, but via the bus terminus you can catch a bus. Taxi is cheap too to TST, no more than HKD 25-30 (no traffic congestion). If you have kids, there is a nice playground nearby (in the podium area) and two (small) grassy areas if your child wants to kick around a soccer ball or just sit on something other than concrete!
The fittings and furnishings are good too. Note that the staff will do (with you) an inventory at the start and end of your stay of every item in the apartment. I guess this is to make sure guests don't swipe the cutlery, alarm clock of something! No big deal, but it did surprise us.

This is a fabulous property. It is located in Kowloon at the Kowloon MTR station. Just out the door of the lobby is the Elements Mall with restaurants, upscale stores, a gourmet grocery store, 3 minutes to the MTR station that will take you directly to the airport in 20 minutes or the Tung Chung line which will connect you to Hong Kong in 5 minutes, or other subway lines in the same amount of time. It is only 10 minutes walk to Canton Road, and only 15 minutes to the Star Ferry. There is also a movie theater AND an ICE SKATING Rink inside the complex. It is adjacent to the W hotel in Hong Kong. It has an in room kitchen, wifi, washer. dryer, rain forest shower, fantastic gym open 24 hours a day and wonderful, personalized and freindly service from all the staff.
