Good apartment. Comfortable and all basic amenities were available. My stay was under a week, so could not make use of the movies, games archive.

Peaceful place being slightly away from the hustle bustle.

Room Tip: take higher floors.

Good access to offices in Central, 10-minute walk; to LKF and Soho area, 5-minute walk. The space is bigger than usual hotel room and with modern furniture. The kitchen, although small, is functional and maximizes the room space. The staff is always friendly and helpful... wonderful experience!

I had the pleasure of staying at Shama Central for 13 years. While there were a few issues over the years, I would select this apartment again. The support staff is kind, thoughtful, helpful and long tenured. The location is great and I will miss being able to walk out the door to the vegetable market on Gage St. and to great restaurants just around the corner.

Room Tip: The floors which have a "F" room are the most spacious.

This is a great hotel to stay at in LKF as it's nearby everything that one would really need. The only downside is that it's slightly hidden from view. Luckily our taxi driver knew exactly that there were 2 Shamas in the area and told us to walk down slope from Hollywood road into Peel Street. This is as the area is pretty well know to be very hilly.

The apartment is considered very large by Hong Kong standards and the staff of the residence were very accommodating to our requests.

From here it's very easy to move about the area as there is a supermarket nearby, minimart, late night food and of course if you're in LKF, the bars and clubs.

Well, it was a great location and I heard many good things about the Shama, but overall I would not recommend this service apartment. The sales team was horrible and rude, and was very unhelpful.

I booked the room for 2 nights and had to make a change. Checking in one night earlier and leaving a day earlier. They had rooms available but insisted I had to pay for the new night regardless. They would not even provide me a better room. Just took my money.

That would have been OK, as this was my fault. Aside from the rudeness of the Shama sales department. But the room had cockroaches. Turn on the light in the mini kitchen and watch them scatter.

So net net, unhelpful people and cockroaches. With all the options to choose from in HK, I would stay away from this one.

Room Tip: Book with a place that wants repeat business. These people dont care.

We stayed at Shama Central on our third visit to HK and we were very happy with the accommodation. Most of the apartments offer minimum one month stay but Shama central offers short stays! The location is very convenient even though no taxis allowed onto the entrance road the staff is very happy to help with the bags from Holywood road which is very close but on a steep hill (we always travel with 2 cases each and we managed fine). Very good size apartment, with small but good enough kitchen for some light cooking and the supermarket is close also the market is just there too with fresh veg/meats/fish etc (we loved shopping in City Super in IFC Mall, bit pricey but you can get some great stuff there, we did stay in on a few nights so I cooked a few meals) laundry room available on 6th floor, gym is good enough. Maybe the bed could be a bit softer and my partner missed a tv in the bedroom. Overall we would be definitely staying there again!

We stayed here for a month when first arriving to HK with three boys under 8 years old. 'Wolf pack' sometimes isn't strong enough to describe their presence. The staff was very accommodating and friendly with the children which made this transition much easier on us as parents. The location with the wet market outside provided daily entertainment and was super convenient for all the things we had to get done. The room staff was also top notch and never flinched. Thanks to the Shama team, well done!
