Also is anyone currently living there looking for a female roommate?

    Hi,

    I am moving to Honk-Kong in late August this year, and I have been looking at the Harbourfront myself. Or any other location, which is affordable and central and where a appartment could be shared. I am 29 years old, Swiss, male and studying as well as working.

    regards

    I asked for a renewal of the contract here, but I was asked to leave after the current contract finishes without no reason. I told them I wish to pay more. But the answer was no. I asked if I could move to another room available, but they say no rooms are available or for coming few months.
    So I'm afraid you will not have your room here.

    Bad points of this place are:
    Mail come late.
    Gym is small.
    No smiles or hellos from the receptionist ladies.
    Not recycling the trash at all.
    TV channels are so limited and all suck. No CNN, no BBC, no Al Jazeera.

    Good luck!

    Anyone in Habourfront/Harbourview with a vacuum cleaner to lend for an hour?

    I have just moved into Harbourfront 2 weeks ago despite the reviews on the bad management.

    Rent is a bit on the high side but apartment is fully furnished and all rooms have the harbourview. Flexibility on the lease is a plus point as no deposit is required and a 2-year lease is not required. Coming from another serviced apartment in TST where the neighbourhood is noisy and full of locals/tourists all time round, I actually appreciate the 'peace' here.

    We are in the midst of unpacking our belongings and trying to store all our winter clothings from overseas into those space storage bags but we don't have a vacuum cleaner to suck out the air from these bags.

    We went to the front desk to borrow a vacuum cleaner offering to place a deposit to be refunded upon returning the vacuum cleaner but this is what they said - "The hotel does not have any vacuum cleaner (strange) but you can pay for the monthly maid service and they will bring the vacuum cleaner and you can ask them to do it for you even though you do not need any cleaning service."

    Their proposed solution is really ridiculous and we are wondering if any kind souls can help us out or is there a better idea to do it?

    Hi mdhk,

    Toured the neighbourhood and chanced upon a laundry shop and possibly the cheapest in the nieighbourhood (we checked around and the owner has also claimed that their price is unbeatable).

    A dried-cleaned pressed shirt costs HKD 13 and it costs HKD 15 for trousers. The owner said that they used to provide home-delivery service but has stopped recently as they are short-staffed and can't cope with the growing business.

    Their shop isn't too far from Harbourfront Horizon and though it isn't as convenient as the laundry shop located downstairs, it sure beats having to iron your shirts/pants yourself. If you are able to find a helper willing to do ironing job for hourly rate, please let me have the contact as well.

    Thanks Tabo, Where exactly is this laundry shop? at Metropolis mall? or another one elsewhere.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for someone who wants to share an apartment at harbourview horizon starting Aug-Sep 2010 for a 1-year contract.
    I've just visited their apartment today and it looks okay to me. I will be studying my masters degree at Chinese U and that's the main reason I am looking for a 1-year contract.

    I am currently in HK for a few days to look for an apartment so let me know if you are interested to meet and discuss about it.

    my email is: [email protected]
    I don't have a HK number yet but will post it as soon as I get one

    Vincent

    I am moving out of HK - have been living in Harbourfront Horizon for 3 years - and have lots of stuff to sell! Does anyone need things like pots, pans, dishes, glassware, blenders, baking tins, iron, hair straightener (never used), etc.??? If so please let me know and we can negotiate. I have photos.
