Should I get a 750sqf apartment on Li Yuen Street West (one of the famous ‘Lanes’ in HK which is opposite H&M and is famous for its street market i.e. pasar malam), located on the 4th floor of a 1960s Chinese walk up building, decor reminiscent of a loft-style, quoted atHKD 14k /month? Link here
Or should I get a 400sqf apartment on Graham street (in nice, sexy, chill-out expat Soho area), decor modern and intelligent (for its size), has elevators, quoted at HKD16k/month? Link here
There’s room for negotiation for both, but I can’t decide whether to get the not-so-coolly-located, more troublesome (walk up 4 floors every day!!) but has more character (feels like a home with space), or the more-coolly-located, definitely more yuppie-styled but a bit serviced-apartment-feellish and more expensive one?
Oh, and I forgot to add: option 1’s stairs are freaking scary looking and they look like they yield cockroaches.
