Spacious 2 bedroom retro apartment in the heart of Tokyo. It is hidden in a leafy neighborhood 5-min walk from Hiroo station and 10-min walk from the vibrant night life in Roppongi.
Spacious 2 bedroom retro apartment in leafy and foreigner friendly Hiroo/Minami-Azabu area. Large living dining room, huge master bedroom and classical Japanese tatami floored guest room.
Washer/dryer, high speed internet, all kitchen amenities included. Towels and linens also provided.
The apartment is as centrally located as you can get in Tokyo, with most of the city’s attractions within walking distance or a short train ride. The city’s nightlife nerve center, Roppongi, is a ten minute walk away – so no concerns about cutting the night short to get the last train.
Located a 5 min walk from Hiroo station on the Hibiya line ((website hidden)), or 10 min walk to Azabu Juban on the Oedo line ((website hidden)) or Roppongi on the Hibiya line and Oedo line ((website hidden)). Well-serviced by Tokyo’s bus routes as well.
Across the street is the famous Arisugawa Memorial Park ((website hidden)), with its large pond, open fields, library, fountains, and baseball field/tennis courts.
We were travelling in a group of 4 and arrived in 2 separate groups. We never actually met Marco or his friend Toshi who arranged our arrival but there were no issues with it at all.
The apartment was great, really large and close to a metro station, the place is even better than in the photos.
We felt very welcome at the apartment, there were instructions left and even a few things for us to use. It definitely felt like home for the 8 days we were there. Would highly recommend.
My host was reliable and even if he could not be there a friend of his, beautiful English, was ready to introduce into the details of the apartment and of the area.
The area in which the flat is located is a residential, classy place. Two minutes walking from a special park, 7 minutes walking from Hibiya Line Subway, Hiro-o station, shoppe and restaurants. One stop away from Roppongi entertainment area.
The flat is old style, silent. A little cold maybe in winter, but when I was there it was more than ok.
Marco is a great host. Even if we didn't meet because of his journalist activity, he was very helpful and he made everything possible to make our easy.
His flat has everything we could expect to visit Tokyo in good condition :
Central with metro : 5min walk to Hiro O station which is 1 station from JR Yamanote,
Quiet environment : embassies around and one park, 24h combini shop close with all you need for everyday life,
Big : 2 spacious rooms that make it perfect for 2 couples traveling together.
Convenient : bathroom, separate (japanese) toilet, washing and drying machine etc…
The traditional japanese room is the cherry on the cake ! So nice to sleep in it !
Marco was all the time very friendly and helpful. Although we did not meet him personally, he was always ready to help us immediately by email or phone. Therefore, it was easy for us to find his apartment and to move in Tokyo.
The apartment was in order and it is situated in an excellent place in Tokyo. Perhaps the standard of equipment of the kitchen has certain obvious shortcomings; for example, the coffee maker seemed to be out of order and we had some problems with the air conditioners, but otherwise everything functioned well.
Marco was out of town for the period of my trip but he still managed to be an attentive host. His place is very spacious and perfectly situated to explore Tokyo. Roppongi and Hiro-o stops are both within a short walking distance.
Great accommodation option for Tokyo. Excellent location and HUGE by Tokyo standards! Older style building but very clean with everything you need. International supermarket just down the road, handy to the train station and opposite a beautiful park. Easy to get a taxi from the end of the road too. Marco was very helpful. Good value for money. Highly recommended.
Thanks Toyah!! I know.. will put up more pictures! :) It was a shame that I didn't get to meet you in person, let me know if you are town next time! I went to New Zealand two years ago for a running race called Kepler Challenge in Te Anau. Love the nature in Kiwi and am planning to do the race again end of this year..
