It was our first time in HK & with nothing to expect, the trip was very satisfying. We stayed 4 days 3 nights at a good cost comparing to other 4-5 star hotels. In the apartment we could cook whichever meals we wanted to have & it truly felt like home. We arrived at CHI residences at midnight & the...

We stayed at Chi Residence 279 for 3nights. Our stay is superb where the hotel is a suite with a lounge & kitchen with complete utensils. Location is good, 5mins walk to bus stop & Yau Ma Tei MTR station in Nathan road. Hotel is closed to restaurants & supermarket. Service provided is excellent & hotel staff are accommodating most...

Actually, it's a nice hotel. But it really makes me feel uncomfortable when I was check in. it take about 40 minutes!!! The POS was broken and the staff cannot find a way to resolve this problem. My friends and I also feel freezing cold in the reception room. This hotel is very close to Temple Street, take a taxi...

We stayed at CHI 279 for a full month. The room rate was fairly pricy, but it was more convenient to have a suite vs a hotel room. Service provided by the staff was excellent, room is cleaned everyday, and towels were changed twice a week (for long term stay). Location is good, closed to MTR station and bus stops...

We chose this location due to travelling with a baby. At least when baby sleeps there is still a living area for us. Within walking distance to Yau Ma Tei train station. Clean and spacious. Good service.

Stayed for 4 nights in first week of June. Beds were comfortable. High speed wi- fi. Very clean rooms. Friendly staff. Great location, 5 min from MTR. Though no option for late checkout, they help to leave our baggage until late evening.

Stayed here for one night in June, 2013. Had a fantastic experience, from the friendly attentive staff to the surprisingly large room (we're talking HK here folks...). Most tropical locales suffer from the mustiness that comes with high temperatures and ever running AC units. To combat this, CHI 279 had an air purifier in the room which was a great...

CHI 279 Residence, located in 279 Shanghai Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon Island is good choice for families visiting Hong Kong. Our family of four stayed in CHI 279 from 25th May to 30th May, 2013 in Apartment #11B. The apartment is small, and is slightly expensive, which is the case with all Hong Kong hotels. This is an apartment...

What a gem of a find. If you are looking for a superb room, this is the place. Very clean, very comfortable, has its own DV library and a player in the room. It even has a air purifier. For the traveller who is watching the pocket, but not wanting to downgrade on accommodation, this is the place. The first...

On the night of arrival, the main entrance was locked, and we pressed the button for contacting the management office for a good 10 to 15 mins. Imagine our frustration on a warm summer night! There was a phone number pasted on the wall, but I didn't have a local phone, so I had to approach a stranger to help...

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.
