The forums on this website are such a great resource; I've been reading them for weeks now and through the advice offered, have been able to make a short list of serviced apartments for my upcoming visit to Hong Kong.
I will be in Hong Kong for a little over a month this winter, from early December until mid January. I don't have plans -- I've never been to Hong Kong and am just coming to check out the scene and escape the NYC winter. I'm an American woman, 30 years old, and fairly well-traveled.
My budget for accommodation is between 11k and 15k at the most. I'm pretty flexible about location -- I just want to be somewhere near good public transportation, and hopefully with good food and shopping within walking distance. I'm not a big party girl, so it's not important that I'm near wild nightlife or anything like that. In fact, I'd rather avoid such areas.
I don't mind a very small space, as long as it has a 'good vibe', ie can be a relaxing refuge after the daily chaos of HK.
Some of the service apartments I've been considering are:
Royal View Hotel
I'm especially interested if anyone has anything to say about Platinum Hollywood. The location and rates seem very attractive, but I can't find many reviews from anyone who's actually stayed there.
Thank you so much for any assistance!
