Are you currently weighing up the option of a serviced apartment stay in Hong Kong? It’s a big decision – we know. Whether you’re new here, or in a phase where you’re unable to commit to a lease, there’s plenty to consider. Staying for longer means you want a home away from home, but you’ll also want some of those hotel conveniences. What you really need is something that sits in the “goldilocks” zone of hospitality – homely yet very convenient!
The EAST Residences might be just the place. This serviced apartment is formerly Taikoo Place Apartments in Taikoo Place. It’s now managed by the hotel team from EAST, Hong Kong. We took a look and learnt a little more about what you can expect from a stay.
EAST Residences is situated in the heart of bustling Taikoo Place. There’s a lot going on in this area, which is a Grade A commercial centre. This means there’s an array of beautiful new office buildings, along with all the businesses that work to support a thriving CBD. You’ll find world-class gyms like Pure, lots of food options, and a weekend farmers’ market.
Taikoo is also home to eateries, bars, inspiring art galleries and cultural events. There’s a decent evening scene that caters to the corporate crowd during the week. Plus, it’s less than a 10-minute walk to Cityplaza, a large shopping centre with international favourites like Zara and M&S, and an ice-skating rink.
Want to explore the city? Quarry Bay MTR station, which provides access to most areas of Hong Kong, is also a walkable distance from the residence.
If you like the outdoors, EAST Residences has a great position for enjoying the city’s offerings. Just around the corner, for example, is harbour-front recreation space Quarry Bay Park. This is one of the largest parks on the Eastern side of Hong Kong Island – ideal for a morning jog and perfect for kids that love scootering. There’s also a tug boat in the centre of the park for them to explore.
Hong Kong has a great trail-running and hiking community. If you’re interested in exploring this greener side, the residence is well positioned for hiking some great trails.
For those who rely on a gym to maintain their fitness regime, you’ll be happy to know guests of EAST Residences can access the 24-hour gym as well as the pool at EAST, Hong Kong.
This is a fully serviced residence equipped with a 24-hour gym, lounge, reading area and a refreshment corner with landscaped terrace overlooking the vibrant neighbourhood. Foodies will love EAST Residences, too. If you’re not in the mood to cook, dial up the in-room dining service offered by Mr & Mrs Fox – a restaurant managed by Swire Restaurants. You will also be able to settle dining charges back at your apartment from neighbourhood restaurants like Mr. & Mrs. Fox and Plat du Jour as well as Feast (Food by EAST) and Sugar (Bar.Deck.Lounge) at EAST, Hong Kong.
The property also offers plenty of mod cons, including the convenience of mobile app ‘StayPlease’ that allows you to keep in touch with the Guest Experience team. This means you can communicate with the team back at your apartment through your mobile, even when you’re out of town. To make your stay even smoother, pocket Wi-Fi is available to ensure you can stay connected everywhere in Hong Kong. An integrated wardrobe concierge service from PAKT is also available.
The acclaimed New York-based firm Richardson Sadeki designed EAST Residences. It comprises 106 suites, with a choice of Studios, One or Two-bedroom Suites and Penthouse options, with each configuration offering a hint of modern contemporary styling.
