My Girlfriend and I had a great stay in Tokyo with Kenji and Alfie, they were very accommodating, we had an unusual schedule and only briefly met Kenji during our stay, but everything was already laid out for us, spare key to let ourselves in and breakfast waiting for us the next morning.easy to follow instructions to find the house, very clean, close to a subway station and 1 stop away from the JR line which made travelling tokyo easy and cheap when doubled with a JR pass. we couldn't ask for anything more in a guest house. Highly Recommended!
We had our first stay with airbnb at Alfie and Kenji's place and it was great first experience. The room was nice and clean, and perfect for us two. They had a air conditioning unit in the room so even though it was a bit cold outside we could adjust the room temperature to our liking. Also the mobile wifi hotspot they lent us helped a lot when we where lost.
Alfie and Kenji also helped a lot with suggestions when it comes to things to see and experience in Tokyo and our stay went to fast.
All in all we would recommend Alfie and Kenji to everyone visiting Tokyo.
This is my first experience staying in a BnB in Tokyo. I am happy to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts, Alfie and Kenji, were really helpful and friendly. Their home is very comfortable and nicely done up. We enjoyed the homely atmosphere and environment. There are many nice local Japanese restaurants within walking distance and the railway station is only a 10 minute walk from the house. It was great to be provided with a mobile broadband data modem during our stay. We were able to immediately connect our smartphones and start connecting with our friends and family overseas. Even the 5 star hotels do not provide this service. I will definitely stay here again. Arigato gozaimas to Alfie and Kenji.
I stay there for 3 nights. Alfie and Kenji were really nice! The house is very confortable, they make coffee every morning and they have fruits and bread for guests.
If you like riding on bicycle is a nice place to go around.
It was great staying there, it was situated in such a good location and the room was very comfortable. The boys helped us with any of our requests and we definitely recommend staying here.
Every other's guest review is nothing but true. Kenji and Alfred, hosts of the Urban Tokyo House, are two very kind people, and their place a perfectly comfortable, neat one.
This was a great place. It's very clean and relatively spacious. The interior is nicely done and therefore you directly feel at home.
The place is a little remote (10 minute walk from Kanamecco station) , but I didn't mind because the connections to shibiya and shinjuku are great. The place was a little cold in winter, but that counts for the whole of Tokyo. People don't isolate and switch heating off when they leave home. After 10 minutes of heating all is fine.
Alfie and Kenji are some of the loveliest and friendliest people we've ever met. Their place is nestled in a quiet neighbourhood that's one stop away from all the downtown actions. They have a very clean and stylish house - the guestroom is spacious and comfortable and we have access to the living area which is great for chilling. They also offer coffee and simple brekkie in the morning! What more can you ask for?
Will definitely stay at Alfie's again if we come back to Tokyo one day - thanks for being such fantastic hosts!
We love staying at Alfies house. Its very comfy and clean.
We met Alfie when we check in late night and he was extremely helpful and nice.
Though we were out most of the time, its so nice to be back in the house after whole day sightseeing and shopping. The living area is so cozy and we did enjoy the time there after tiring days. We've enjoyed chatting with Alfie during a night when we were home a little early.
I highly recommend Alfies place to stay.
We had a great time in japan. That's for sure!! Although it's now our first time there. Tokyo is amazing!! Transportation is so convenient. Alfie's place looks exactly shown on airbnb, even cleaner, tidier and very comfortable (sorry Kenji that I had left a fair bit of waste for you to clean up! ) You know after 10 hours of intensive walking each day
