NOTE **Although totally central, the neighborhood, building and neighboring tenants are quiet and respectful. In this way, this flat suits chilled out people who respect this vibe, wanting a quiet retreat away from the bustle of Tokyo. This is not a "party pad" and we encourage people who want to throw late night parties in the flat to search out other options. Different to a hotel, we prefer to rent to people who appreciate as if it was their own home, taking care of it in the same way.
**The flat pricing varies according to the number of people staying and the season. We set the flat pricing at great value for the central location against the cost of any small mediocre hotel. We can not offer reduced pricing on request. Nor can we open the schedule to match your desired date if the dates don't show as free. The accurate pricing and availability are reflected in the booking query.**
I will send an exact map to all my guests!
It is easy to access from the station.
We had a wonderful, but unfortunately very short stay with Yolanda in Shibuya. It was exactly what we were looking for! Centrally located and within walking distance to lots of Tokyo's sights and activities. A lovely sized apartment for 2.
Yolanda was lovely when we met her and very accommodating to our needs! We would definitely recommend staying with her!! I wish we could have stayed longer. Next time! Thank you.
Stayed at Yolanda's place for 3 nights and it was a great stay. Very cozy and quiet place. The apartment is about 10 minutes walk from Shibuya shopping district and 5 minutes walk from the narita express. Very convenient! The only down side is that the place does not have an elevator. We were there during winter season and our luggages were heavy and we need to drag our luggages up 4 levels. Yolanda is a great host, very responsive. She even helped us with our luggages despite them being very heavy.
Yolanda's apartment in Shibuya central was lovely! Great location, very close to the train station and neighbours an incredibly beautiful shrine. This place keeps you in close proximity to everything including organic juice bars and izakayas. Yolanda is so kind and her directions were great. We would happily stay here again when we return to Tokyo!
Amazing location, lovely host and a very comfortable apartment!
This apartment is in a fantastic location, it is nice and clean and we especially liked sleeping in the tatami room. Yolanda is a great host and was very helpful throughout.
We had a pleasant three-night stay at Yolanda's apartment during our trip to Tokyo. The room was big enough for the four of us, and it was literally 5-minutes away on foot from Shibuya station's new south exit. During my first night I encountered a problem with my pocket wifi device and Yolanda was kind enough to stop (email hidden) to drop by a replacement. Yolanda's pretty helpful too, she guided me through the whole booking process, since this is my first time using Airbnb and I was completely clueless. Overall, we had a memorable stay at Yolanda's apartment, it's comfortable, clean, conveniently located near a central area, and affordable, where else can you get a place like this in Tokyo?
This apartment is small but great. It has a kitchen, a washing machine, a small balcony, a hair dryer, etc. It is also centrally located (5 min walk to shibuya station) and Yolanda is so lovely!
Don't let the entrance to the building put you off, this apartment is perfect!
A very short walk to Shibuya station the location is perfect with convenience stores and great cafes and restaurants just around the corner. And just like the rest of Tokyo it's very safe.
The apartment is traditional Japanese style with kitchen bedroom and bathroom. There is a futon to sleep on and a fold out sofa for extra guests and plenty of bedding to keep warm. There is also a reverse style air conditioner for hot and cold heating.
One thing I loved was the hot water - always boiling hot to warm you up first thing!
There is also a selection of toiletries.
The pocket wifi was very welcome. It was handy to carry around to use (website hidden) Maps when getting lost and for checking emails etc. Plenty of data to last my 5 days. You should note that Tokyo does not have many wifi locations if you don't have a your own. It may be worth registering before traveling for the Starbucks free wifi offer.
Yolanda was a great host. She met me at the apartment as agreed even though it was a 1 am check in and was always fast and efficient with questions I had before my stay.
If you are looking for a base for a trip to Tokyo for 1 to 4 guests you can't go past this apartment.
Thanks so much Yolanda. Hope to see you in Sydney one day!
Yolanda was an amazing host who was genuinely concerned about any problems we had. She came to meet us and helped us take our luggage up the stairs. The location itself was convenient for shopping at Shibuya. The apartment itself was cozy, and nice and had everything we required. I highly recommend staying at her place!
Overall, great 3 night stay with Yolanda in Tokyo earlier this month!
Amazing value for money at this location. It's a bit of a walk from the main portion of Shibuya Station and the Hachiko Exit (Shibuya scramble, etc.), but this might not be a bad thing because it's fairly quiet on this side. Still, on the side the Narita Express stops and also some other local-ish lines that are good for day trips to Tokyo's surrounding cities. Plenty of restaurants and combini in the area, and we frequented the nearby Starbucks. Not hard to find from the New South Exit of Shibuya Station, and Yolanda provided very detailed and helpful directions.
A bit smaller than the photos suggest, but hey, it's Tokyo. I guess it's possible to accommodate more than two, but I would say one or two is ideal. Yolanda let us use the cups, plates, silverware, and pot (we used it to boil water), which was very helpful.
Yolanda was great to work with and was easily reachable. Great communication and very helpful!
Protip - WiFi hotspot is capped at 1GB. This sounds like enough, but you'll have to be careful with data leakage. We didn't really use the internet at all during our first night and somehow we "used" 850MB! Just to be sure, I would turn off all WiFi devices just to make sure they weren't somehow using data when you don't need them.
Yolanda was a great hostess. She kept the apartment in very tidy shape, and was very diligent with getting the place clean for me.
The location and apartment were very good! Even my Tokyo friends were impressed with the place when they came over. Overall, a very positive first experience for me with AirBNB.
