The place is out of the way and some people might find it too far out. But by being there, you get to experience the real Japan and its people. Fabulous neighbourhood! Best small sushi bar ever! The apartment itself is comfortable for 4 people. We were there with our two grown up children and we had plenty of room.. Furniture is a little old and reminds me when I was a student. So this is not luxurious by any mean but it is fine. 5 minute walk to train is a bonus.

Quiet back lane parallel with a main road, yes you could clearly hear the odd van passing early in the morning but not an issue for us. Well equipped (thoughtful addition of power bank to go with portable wifi for e.g.), instructions for hot water etc all clear. Metro line within 5 mins walk, Meguro river nearby unexpectedly pretty & lively by night. Many shops, bars, cafes locally, and an easy walk to Shibuya for more mainstream stuff. Helpful host (in truth didn't need to bother him while there). His recommended private taxi from the airport was worthwhile for us, arriving late with kids - Mohinder was really helpful and showed us in, made sure all was ok. Reassuring on your first night in a new city. Not a flash place but for the price, recommended.
