Absolutely best Airbnb experience and booking my next stay already. We've been to HK multiple times but this is the first time we feel at home and comfortable. Eckhard's place is so quiet, comfortable, and homey. The place had everything we needed in cooking and making smoothie. The two balconies are such a blessing, we loved watering the plant and drinking wine on the balcony on a rainy day.
The place is about 13 minute walk uphill from the MTR but we didn't mind at all because it's a nice walk and conveniently located on the island line. There are three international supermarkets within walking distance and we managed to find all the brands we eat in the U.S. We loved that Eckhard's place is in a super quiet residential neighborhood but we were able to walk to the best bars, clubs, and restaurants within 15 minutes.
Sheung Wan, especially the Tai Ping Shan Street area, is a hip neighborhood with lots of new cafes and art galleries. It's also a mixed community with lots of local antique, food stores as well as expat/ international cafes and restaurants.
The flat is a walk up, about 3 flights of stairs. We only had a small hand-carry so we didn't mind the exercise!
Such a quiet haven and gem in a busy city, really wish I owned this flat.
