Great location, could use subtle improvements
The location is between Shibuya station and OmoteSando but as more trains run out of Shibuya we usually went to that station. The instructions on how to access the apartment were very good and we walked to it from Shibuya station and let ourselves in with no problem. The air conditioner has a difficult time keeping up with the heat even in May. The bath situation is a tub/shower and sink in one room and a toilet in another, which was preferable as there was no waiting. The pocket wifi was so handy to have. The only complaints I have were that the wifi was turned off for our last 24 hours there which is when we needed it the most to confirm travel reservations. Also, it would have been nice to have some sort of booklet to explain how to use the air conditioner and washing machine as the controls are all in Japanese. FYI--the dryer doesn't actually dry, it just gets it so it doesn't drip when you hang it. This is important to know if you are planning to do laundry the day before you leave.

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for a week in February. The place is accurately described as advertised. Finding the condo for the first time was a challenge as there is a lot of construction and many different exits from Shibuya train station that lead us in the wrong direction.
The first two days of our trip were very cold. And the heater in the condo was inadequate due of the lack of insulation from the sliding glass doors. The heater ran contently an could not reach the maximum setting of 30 degrees Celsius.
Also, the bandwidth on the WiFi is very slow. Any more than two connections will bring the system to a halt.
But if you are looking for a less expensive place in a good location then this may fit your needs.

Masse and Marissa's apartment was comfortable, clean and in a great location: very close to the station, shops, restaurants etc. It was perhaps a little small for four Australians but we only had four people for two nights so it was okay. It was very well appointed with toiletries and detergents. The heating could be improved a little. We had an air conditioner but it was not effective enough to keep us warm.
The space for our 6 days was perfect especially for the value. We really loved how spacious it was
The space for our 6 days was perfect especially for the value. We really loved how spacious it was including the outdoor space. 5-7 mins walk to Shibuya station is great with many cafes, restaurants, and bar options nearby. The only possible negative maybe that the main nightlife bar/clubs is 20 mins and more walking but it's still doable or cheap taxi away. Overall great stay and would stay here again.
