    Question Serviced apartments near Central

    My budget is 40-70k. Can anyone reply within this price range of serviced apts? I'm looking to be close to work in central. At this point, looking at mid levels, soho, central. Thoughts?

    Well, 40k-70k won't get you much in those areas. Virago spends that much in LKF most weekends..

    40-70k is a huge variation....might help if you narrow it down a little, also more about your requirements?

    As per your other thread - 4 seasons at IFC. But some (more detailed) indication of what you actually want would be helpful.

    For example if it were me I would write:
    1. Space is my number one priority and I am prepared to commute some distance to get plenty of room (and rooms)
    2. I hate feeling claustrophobic so I like views in many directions and can see the sea and mountains
    3. Having good transport is important
    4. Do not care much about shops providing the basics are covered
    5. A decent kitchen with a full oven is essential; at least two bathrooms is essential
    6. Budget is a maximum of x.

    And so on. Get the idea?

    Good point; what I like:
    -don't care about space, would like to live in nice building/area rather than more sq ft.
    -don't care about kitchen space, will most likely do take away or eat out
    -meaning, would like to have restaurants/ grocery nearby where I can buy fruit etc close by.
    -since this will be my first time living here, I'd like to reside with other expats, I'm also coming alone and don't speak the language so being near expats is ideal
    -will be spending majority of time at work so walkable distance or easy commute to central is preferred.
    -would love to go to pure fitness/yoga facility - hopefully very close by. (or other yoga studios)
    -I live on the water at home, so would love water views, but of course not a deal breaker, but would love big windows/sunlight, but also not a deal breaker.

    Thanks in advance - let me know if u/others have any other suggestions. I'm getting nervous about the time. I only have today/ fri to view anything.

    Per other thread, take a look at Pacific place.
    There is everything downstairs, 1 MTR stop away (or 15min walk) from Central, lots of expats as well as top notch facilities.

    OK - then yes, with those requirements 4 seasons fits well. I have never seen it - my friend didn't like it because she actually DIDNT like the "fancy" atmosphere and did want more space. But she told me it was extremely convenient - there is a citisuper in IFC (so right underneath) - citisuper is an expensive supermarket full of expat goods - and IFC has many restaurants and is walking distance from Central, Soho and the other areas. I agree with HC - pacific place also fits this criteria. Not sure where else.

    Prices START at over 80K, over OP's budget.

    Really, you sure? Last I looked (6-8 months ago) you could get something in the 60s...I thought with a max budget of 70K, it would be doable.
