How can I rent an apartment in Hong Kong - apartments with views

Everyone knows that housing in Hong Kong is very expensive andafford not every traveler. That is why here, as nowhere else, the Airbnb apartment search service is relevant. Of course, a single traveler can move into a hostel costing $ 30, and a married couple in a budget hotel for $ 50, but you know what these conditions will be. I once lived in such guest an area of ​​several square meters with a shower over the toilet.

So, if the family goes with children when you needspace (and housing is all close in Hong Kong) and a full-fledged kitchen, it is better in my opinion to rent an apartment in Hong Kong rather than book a hotel. Because the hotel of the same level, will come out at all prohibitively expensive.

In general, very comfortable conditions, where it is quiteYou can live without straining. Eh, I would have lived in Hong Kong for several months ... Separately, I was still happy for our accommodation, because it is more convenient to get sick in comfort, and not in a trash hotel (we took turns for a couple of days). By the way, I liked the wide window sills under the large windows, you can sit there and look out the window or use it as a shelf for storing something.

Of the minuses I see only one thing - in the apartmentthe owner constantly lives, he probably rents it out only when he leaves. Because of this, the apartment is full of his belongings, boxes, cabinets are occupied, in the fridge one shelf was with his products. Thus, if you are used to unpacking your bags completely and you have a lot of things, then putting them all apart is not a fact of what happens. Our host has freed only half a wardrobe in each bedroom.

Only half a cabinet was set free.

Gym, pool, view

In addition to comfortable housing, you get a gym withbeautiful view from the window. Imagine running on a treadmill and look into a beautiful distance. Unfortunately, I did not get to the gym, it was not at all to him. There is also a swimming pool, it is small, but quite self-sufficient to swim.

Other apartments in Hong Kong

Here you still my selection of other apartments (including the budget), which weconsidered, but discarded in favor of the above option. The main part of the apartments I was looking for were located on the island of Hong Kong and near the subway station Wan Chai. We chose this particular area for ourselves, as there is a supermarket nearby, a ferry Star ferrywho goes to the Kowloon Peninsula to Avenues of Stars, two metro stops to Central, a couple of tram stops to HongKong Park and before the tram (peak tram) that goes on Victoria Peak.
