A perfect little studio apartment in a great Tokyo location

  • 5 of 5

I am really torn about writing a great review here. On one hand, I REALLY want to keep this as my secret place to stay in Tokyo, but on the other hand, Biei is so lovely and friendly that I feel I owe it to her little business to be forthcoming.

We arranged to check in at 8pm, and Biei was there to welcome us and to explain everything about the apartment. We had no problems during the stay, and check out was simple.

The apartment is quite small. It's a studio with the bedroom, kitchen and living room all in one space. Only the bathroom is separate. There is good home WiFi and there is also a "Pocket WiFi" to use when you're out and about in Tokyo. The TV has the usual international news channels, and lots of Japanese content. The heating worked well during our winter stay. The kitchen is well equipped, and Biei even provided us with a few things for breakfast on our first morning. The bathroom is fully stocked with amenities and cleaning supplies. Plus there is an excellent and quite high-end washlet (Japanese electronic toilet) and also my favourite thing about Japanese homes — a shower and bath wet room. For a small apartment, there is a reasonable amount of storage space too.

We never heard any noise from the neighbours. In fact, we never saw any neighbours. The building has an elevator and the apartment is on the 8th floor. Outside the apartment front door is a nice view of some iconic Shinjuku towers, and on a clear day you can see Mt. Fuji over Yoyogi Park. From the full-wall window inside the apartment you can see the new Olympic stadium.

The neighbourhood is very residential, with a few hipster-y "curated" shops. There is a 7-11 convenience store beside the building with an international ATM, a well known local coffee shop at the bottom of the building, a supermarket about 10 minutes away, and a popular "taco rice" food truck down the street.

The location is ideal. It's 5 minutes to Harajuku, 10 minutes to Omotesando, 20 minutes to Aoyama, 25 minutes to Shibuya or Shinjuku, and there are several subway and train stations nearby.

I mentioned a few times that the apartment is small. It is, but it is nevertheless almost perfect for a city holiday. It has everything you need and is very comfortable. Besides, most Tokyo apartments are quite small, and this one has more space than any Japanese hotel room I've ever stayed in.

I can't wait to stay here again! I just hope it's available when I do return to Tokyo...

Great place in Tokyo!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for our stay in Tokyo. We were initially looking to stay near Shibuya or Shinjuku but so glad we found this place. The neighborhood is quiet and quaint. The apartment is small but so well organized and decorated. It was so helpful to have to pocket wifi for exploring Tokyo as well. The place is a quick 8 minute walk to the Harajuku Yamanote line. Checking in and out was very painless. Thanks for letting us crash at the place!

We really enjoyed our week in Tokyo. This great apartment helped make our vacation wonderful. We'll definitely stay there again. The host, Biei, was very helpful and responsive when issues arose.

Stellar, clean, and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Biei's home was top notch for our nine night stay in Tokyo. Upon first impression the home was very clean and everything was well designed and well thought out. The layout is pleasant, and both the home and pocket wifi were fast (especially the home wifi, at the time of my stay I clocked 50-60 mbps easy). We had a pocket wifi ordered to begin with, but having a second pocket wifi was great because my wife and I were able to communicate to each other when separated, i.e. in a retail store.

My wife and I stayed in Tokyo for our honeymoon, and knowing this before our arrival, Biei supplied a nice bottle of bubbly for us to celebrate!

The washroom was a pleasure to use, and Biei even supplied all the necessities needed for bath, including shampoo/conditioner/bodywash. The kitchen was equipped with oil/salt/pepper and a Nespresso machine with cream/sugar. There were also sandwich bags, plastic wrap, and garbage bags for our disposal. Also Included was detergent and softener for the washing machine.

I could go on about how great this apartment was, including it's prime location. Depending on your pace of walking, the place is located 8-10 minutes from Harajuku/Meiji-mae subway stations which pretty much lead you anywhere in Tokyo.

Don't hesitate to book this property, you will not be disappointed.

A further visit and expectations fully met!

  • 5 of 5

This visit may have been our fourth to this delightful apartment. We continue to visit as we know we have a host who makes sure that all is in readiness for our visit. It is important to appreciate that space is at a premium in this part of the world and a lot of thought has been applied to make the available space work well in this apartment. We hope to continue to make use of this space as our home in Japan!

loads of space and great mod Tokyo apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable bed, plenty of space and all you need for a 'home away from home' stay. Location was fantastic and we enjoyed all the surrounding sights, restaurants and shopping.
