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.**

The amount of guests must be specified at the time of booking and not after. We require the details of each person staying in the flat with all bookings. i.e; names, nationalities, passport copies and addresses.
*Although totally central, the immediate surrounding neighborhood is quiet and suits people who can respect and appreciate this. The neighbors are generally very low key, quiet, and keep to themselves. We ask that guests take this into consideration while staying in the flat and also not consult the neighbors for anything. We are happily able to respond to any inquiries about anything related to your stay in the flat, neighborhood, and or sightseeing promptly.
*As we really like to support the local recycling campaigns, garbage separation is required to stay in the flat .
*We do not consider our flat to be a hotel in any way. As this normally is our private home, we ask our guests make themselves comfortable, to treat the place well, and respect it as if it was their own home. Any damage to the flat should be reported to us at the time it happens and not after departure.
Managed to meet up with Yolanda and she's such a great host :) Meeting us to show us to the place and gave us a little brief. The location of this place is great, walking distance to famous Shibuya crossing where all the actions are. There are four of us although this place will be perfect for 2 or 3 persons group. It does get a little cold at night although there is heating. But all in all I enjoyed my stay and is happy to have meet up with the host.
Yolanda was a great host and very accommodating, allowing us to check out a few hours after what is typically the case. The apartment was exactly like what the pictures represented and was centrally located, allowing us to get to all the great neighborhoods of Tokyo fairly quickly either by foot or by subway. An extra plus, the closest subway stop - Shibuya - is right on the Narita Express line, which makes travel to / from the airport very easy. Overall, a great experience.

Yolanda has been a very nice and friendly host. Picked us up from the Shibuya train station which is about a 5 minutes walk to the apartment which is really great especially if you're lugging heavy luggages from the Narita airport. The Narita express train stops directly at Shibuya so it's very accessible.
The apartment was cosy and has all the basic necessities we needed.
A quiet neighbourhood and there are 24hrs minimarts like Lawson along the way. Plenty of food places all around too.
Only downside is that there are no lifts at the building so you will need to take the staircase up for 5 floors. We had 5 heavy luggages since there were 5 of us but superwoman Yolanda helped us carry it up which we're really grateful for cause it's no mean feat getting them up the stairs!
Also we had to keep our voices to the minimum cause we can't make any noise in the apartment.
Other than that the apartment is great and you get to experience sleeping on the tatami.
