Serviced Apartments  in Hong Kong: Two MacDonnell Road

Staying in Hong Kong in an apartment vacation rental is a great option specially for families, or if travelling with a group of friends.


Apartments have much to offer... it is quite convenient having a little extra space, a kitchen for quick meals or snacks... or a living room, den, your own small space to hang out together... and overall a more "localized" experience...

Although many properties require a minimum stay of 3-4 days, many do not and can be rented for only one night.

Renting an apartment involves a little more work but is definitely worth it. Sometimes but not always, the savings can be substantial when travelling with a group and is definitely a lot more fun.

Luckily, there has been a surge of interest in the apartment/home rental market with apps and specialised rental agencies that make the whole process much safer and easier for both the apartment owner and the visitor. But of course, unlike a well-established hotel or resort with an expected level of service and standard, the process of booking and staying in an apartment might be a little more involved.

It will most likely require communicating with the owner or property manager directly, make arrangements for picking up keys on arrival, etc. and there is always the risk that the property is not as advertised or as it "looks in the pictures".

Since each property is different, be sure to pay attention to the descriptions and previous customer reviews for each property, they are a good indication of what you're getting and how the entire experience worked out. The range of ammenities varies greatly among properties, so know what to expect to avoid dissapointment. Just as important when reading the reviews is to make sure the reviews are recent.

Tips when booking your apartment or vacation rental

  • During high season or holidays the popular vacation rentals go fast! Plan on booking six months to a year in advance, and don't hesitate to contact multiple properties at a time

  • You can book some properties directly online; however, many properties, especially homes managed directly by the owner, require personal contact. In this case, fill out the e-mail form provided on the site and the owner will reply directly to you. Responses typically take 24 to 48 hours. Besides the regular e-mail communication, we normally call and speak to the owner directly, which we recommend you do specially if you have any doubts or concerns.

  • Make sure you know what is included in the price. If it's not indicated in the property description, you need to ask. Things like:
    • WiFi
    • Sheets and Towels
    • Is there a cleaning fee?
    • Appliances in the kitchen if you want something in particular i.e. microwave, toaster, etc.

  • Review and sign a rental agreement and read it carefully as each rental typically has their own cancellation policies and house rules

  • Payment and Deposit policies vary among properties with most requiring a security deposit.

  • All the online booking platforms offer a secure payment system so you are protected in case of something going terribly wrong, i.e. you are denied access to the property, the rental was substantially misrepresented, etc. so basically a "Book with Confidence" feature, which you should take advantage of.
