Though I am writing my review now, I stayed at Chi Residences 279 twice before, once in 2010 and 2012. I enjoyed my time during both occasions. It's located among a row of shophouses and it has a small entrance with a glass door with a keypad. The staff who checked me in on both occasions were professional and friendly....

Big room especially space in Hong Kong is such scarce. Relative clean room and good location. Service is great and staff greet us when we return back. Location is near Yau Ma Ti mtr. Nearby has many eateries, no worries.

After a lot of research for our holiday in November 2015, we decided to stay at CHI Residences 279 at Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon. This was my husband's first visit to Hong Kong and my third. I just love the place and was hoping my husband would enjoy it as much as I do. We booked directly through the...

Close to public transport (including bus A21 from the airport), this apartment is just what you need for a week in Hong Kong. Not very big, but everything you need, clean, well serviced, friendly personnel, free handy to discover Hong Kong (a wonderful feature!!). The views from the room are not great, but then you are in the middle of...

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.
