Very cosy residence! Other than the few flight of stairs, the rest are awesome! Staffs were friendly and room are clean and well furnish! The security features are a plus point! Felt safe when staying there.

CHI is essentially a long term stay hotel (locally sometimes called a "Serviced apartment"). My wife and I stayed for a week in Jan 2016. Worked out great. Apartment was large by HK standards, with separate living and sleeping areas, a king size bed, and a small kitchenette. Living area included a large table that I could work on while... More

I am a single traveller and booked in for 4 nights in January 2016. Welcoming and helpful staff; lovely clean and well equipped apartment; smooth soft sheets and a really comfortable bed, made my stay really special. CHI 279 is located within 3 minutes walk from Temple Street evening market and just 5minutes from Nathan Road. Excellent choice.

My actual experience staying at this apartment style hotel did not match the descriptions on their website by a long short. The hotel fell short on numerous dimensions: 1.

We stayed at CHI for 3 months (as a serviced apartment). The apartment is pretty comfortable and has a convenient layout. Small, but adequate kitchen, cozy living and bedroom and pretty spacious bathroom (for HK standards). The location is great. Close to yau ma tei MTR, with supermarkets and Langham Place at walking distance. Staff is very friendly.

We had great feeling even when we first arrived at the apartment. It looks hidden but the sign is very clear. It's very easy to get to with 1 bus from the airport and a short 5 minutes walk from the bus stop. Location is very convenient, it's close to bus stop, Yau Ma Tei MTR and also Jordan MTR.... More

Impressed with the cleanliness of the apartment, and the size of the bathroom. We took the apartment for 3 people and were happy with our stay. Wished there was a sofa or more armchairs available in the room though. Very convenient location with lots of interesting street markets (both night & day versions) within easy walk.

This is my second time staying here. Last year, my family stayed here too. A good sized 1-bedroom apartment with strong WiFi signal, clean and comfortable beds and great location, these are the factors that bring us back. Second time here, I am still very satisfied with the service. Keep it up!

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
