Lodging Alternatives

Almost every hotel will offer you a special rate for longer-term stays of a week or more—and some, like The Upper House, J Plus, and Lanson Place Hotel in Causeway Bay are especially equipped for residential guests. But if you prefer a more hands-off atmosphere, consider renting a serviced apartment. The following properties, which are all licensed to accommodate tenants for both short-term and long-term stays, were chosen for their compelling locations, amenities, and cozy but comfortable interiors. However, as most of these are inhabited year-round by monthly renting expatriates, it's best to call and discuss dates, rates, and conditions well in advance.

The Jervois. A bright new ode of contemporary design in Sheung Wan provides one or two-bedroom suites for long- or short-term stays while offering some of the most comfortable lodgings around. It also provides a free gym membership during your stay, in addition to a rooftop deck with barbecue facilities. 89 Jervois St., Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. 3994–9000. www.thejervois.com.
