Great location and friendly managment
Tiny retreat in a big City!
As a solo traveller and a first time visitor to Japan, this small and cozy ground floor appt was perfectly located to explore the vast City of Tokyo. It's easily accessible to the metro and buses for exploring day and night and quiet and comfortable for re-charging and planning. I particularly enjoyed the local neighbourhood of Yoga and found some great little eateries and delis nearby. I found everyone to be very friendly and helpful, it was a wonderful experience!
Location was terrific, very handy for station. Property was extremely small though, really should be described as a room. Bathroom was so small as to be very uncomfortable to use. Overall the property was dusty, had not been cleaned recently and there were no sheets for the loft bed.
Hi Julie, I'm sorry to see these minor inconveniences effected had such a significant impact on your review. Unfortunately we have no control over the size of the unit nor the size of the bathroom within the unit. This is a standard Tokyo apartment, and is presented accurately in the photos provided. We do our best to ensure the unit is clean, well prepared, and a unit that can provide a pleasant stay from moment of checkin. The unit was cleaned and prepared for you the day of your arrival, and passed our 2 part cleaning QA which includes dusting of most prevalent surfaces. The Loft Bed is not setup by default, as we use the Sofa Bed as the default bed, but we do provide anything needed by request, which we never received from you. We have backups of all sheets and linens on property or in storage, which we can quickly and easily provide on request.
Nice neighborhood abode
This place is small but cute. I didn’t sleep in the loft because it was too high and there were no safety rails but the futon couch worked great.
Neighborhood is quiet. Tons of places to eat around. A very quick walk to the station. Grocery store nearby. The train takes about 10 minutes to Shibuya. Easy to also get to Yokohama and that direction if you change trains.
Some things that weren’t in the listing that were a happy surprise: first, there is coin laundry nearby. The washer works great in the apartment but sometimes clothes need a good drying. Second, there is a sento (traditional public bath) down the street. The bath setup in the apartment is tight and it was great being able to go to the sento to stretch out. The neighborhood ladies are amazingly friendly and it was a great experience. There is a second sento on the other side of the station, about a ten minute walk. It was also very nice. Third, there are actually quite nice temples within walking distance of the apartment. The local temple you will pass is beautiful, but if you walk the other direction, you can get to jokoji temple, which has the lucky cat statues. And there are other shrines and temples in that area. It was a nice afternoon walk (but you can definitely find a bus as well).
The pocket WiFi provided by the host was nice for internet as we walked around Tokyo. It was touchy (I had to refresh it periodically to work as we were out and about) and it didn’t get good reception on the apartment however.
Overall the place was great, albeit very small. Absolutely fine for one person, tight for two.
Cute little space in Yoga
Easy to find cute apartment, perfect for one or a close friendly 2. Fold out couch on 1st floor, small sleeping loft above.
Great location. Great for walking around and exploring. Terrific train connections to Shibuya. One stop farther, large Japanese shopping mall with movie theater
A perfect retreat! Thanks Robert, Kumina & Tyler
Cozy and quiet place
Clean linen, close to the subway, quiet at night, and 15 min for Shibuya. Wht more can you ask for.
