Serviced apartments have the comforts of an apartment with the benefits of daily cleaning service. This one had a double bed in the room, separated from the living/dining/tv area by a sliding screen. The separate single bed in the living area was perfect for our child to feel like they had their "own room". Tight quarters, but homey. Chi provided... More

Had a wonderful stay at CHI residences, not sure why everybody thought it was pretty run down but we stayed there for 4 nights and the place was really cosy. Maybe we got lucky? Beds were comfortable, there were amenities provided, you can even rent DVDs from the management office. More like a serviced apartment than a hotel. Only downside... More

My wife and I stayed here a week. The location of the apartments are great and the average nightly price makes it great value for money when comparing it to the price of a similarly rated hotel. Overall it has the same amenities as a hotel (except no cotton buds and shower caps in the bathroom), it has a small... More

Great location! Easy to find and near the MTR station. Room was clean and cosy. Had problems with the in-room Wi-Fi and flagging the cab on a rainy day but the the staff were friendly and helpful in resolving our problems.

Lovely place to say. Good location. Not to far from the MTR. Clean and modern. Very friendly staff. Only problem is the lift doesn't go all the way to the ground floor so you have to hike up to the first floor (reception floor) and then you can take the lift. The room is a good size considering its in... More

Location great. Friendly staff. Good security. Clean. Room size big in hk standard. But the hotel is rather run down with the leather back of the bed peeling off. Stains on the sliding doors. Drainage system in shower wasnt working that well. The shower area flooded everytime we took a shower and it took around 15 mins before the water... More

CHI is essentially a long term stay hotel (locally sometimes called a "Serviced apartment"). My wife and I stayed for a week in Jan 2016. Worked out great. Apartment was large by HK standards, with separate living and sleeping areas, a king size bed, and a small kitchenette. Living area included a large table that I could work on while... More

I am a single traveller and booked in for 4 nights in January 2016. Welcoming and helpful staff; lovely clean and well equipped apartment; smooth soft sheets and a really comfortable bed, made my stay really special. CHI 279 is located within 3 minutes walk from Temple Street evening market and just 5minutes from Nathan Road. Excellent choice.

My actual experience staying at this apartment style hotel did not match the descriptions on their website by a long short. The hotel fell short on numerous dimensions: 1.

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
