About This Listing
Sunny apartment in the heart of tokyo. Located in the neighborhood of Meguro only 5mins walk from the JR Meguro station. Although very central, still has a local feel to it. Millions of restaurants around it, Meguro is famous for its dinning. The Building is also located across a beautiful japanese temple and above a 24h supermarket, so you can always get whatever you need at anytime. Also located next to Meguro River where you can go for pleasant walks.
Please check my calendar for availability. The dates available there are the dates available. If it says booked then its booked. Thanks ;)
The Apartment is nice and spacious, bigger then the average japanese apartments located on the 9th floor with a beautiful view from the living room and kitchen and also a amazing sunset view of Mount Fuji from the rooftop.
• The bedroom is separated from the living room by sliding doors. The Tatami flooring keeps it cozy and stylish.
• The living room and dinning room's large windows make the apartment very bright and allow the sun to come straight in the house from 11am til sunset. Also has an electric organ and acoustic guitar for those of you, like me, who play music.
I have pocket wifi internet, so no matter where you go in Tokyo you can take the small device with you and always be connected.
• Fully equipped kitchen. Clean cooking utensils and two burner stove. Large fridge and microwave.
• Toilet and bath facility (shower and hot tub) are separated from each other.
JR Meguro Station is very central, only 5 mins away from Shibuya and 11 mins from Shinjuku. Also easy connection with all the JR bullet trains to Kyoto, Osaka and other cities.
The apartment is also located 5 mins walk from the local sports center with indoor and outdoor pools, gym, tennis, basketball and badminton courts, etc.
Although totally central, the building is quiet and best suits chilled out people who respect this vibe. As we really like to support the local recycling campaigns, garbage separation is required to stay in the flat . As this is not a hotel, we prefer to rent to people who treat the place well and respect it as if it was their own home.
Will was able to fit me in to stay at his place in 1 days notice which was quite accommodating. His instructions for finding the apartment and getting access to the room were excellent and I had no issues. I really enjoyed the layout of his apartment. It is a cross between a NYC apartment and historic ryokan with the tatami mats and futon in the sleeping area. Also with a nice view overlooking Meguro area. Very clean place and quite functional. In terms of location, you are right in the center of Meguro with immediate access to supermarket directly below you as well as surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants and bars. This is my second time being in Japan and what I found useful was being next to the JR Yamanote line allowing great access to the city.
Staying at Wills apartment was nice and relaxing. The apartment is located central Tokyo but yet the part of town has a calm wipe to it, and is less hectic than other areas of Tokyo, which we found rather nice, after spending long days walking the town.
We only shortly meet Will who was friendly and chilled.
Will recommend his place to others – only minus was the noise from the street, that might keep sensitive sleepers awake.
Nice little flat in central part of Tokyo. 10mins from nearest subway station that connects to main subway lines. Many places to eat and drink in the area which seems to consist mostly by locals. Flat itself is clean and cosy. Dealing with Will was a pleasure. Recommend it and definitely recommend Tokyo for anyone thinking about it, amazing city.
The reservation was canceled 61 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Check-in/out process was totally easy. Our host Will have been communicating all the information well ahead of time to ensure us an easy time understanding the rules and directions. The apartment is clean and quiet. Location is extremely convenient and there are tons of good food in the neighborhood. During our stay, our host went above and beyond to keep in touch as we come up with questions about anything. I felt like I had a local friend helping out at all times. This is a great place and I felt that I can stay here again next time I visit Tokyo.
Gui ist super nett, immer erreichbar und hilfsbereit. Ein kleines house manual hätte die eine oder andere Nachfrage erspart, denn ich kam mir nach einiger Zeit schon etwas lästig vor, aber da musste Gui nun mal durch und er hat immer sehr schnell geantwortet. Die Wohnung liegt im 9. Stock und hat daher eine schöne Aussicht. Für Ruhesuchenende könnte die Lage des Hauses an einer großen Straßenkreuzung etwas zu laut sein. Die Fenster sind einfach verglast und dichten nicht richtig ab so dass man den Straßenlärm in der Wohnung deutlich hören kann. Ob das einem persönlich stört muss jeder für sich selber entscheiden. Ich fand es ok und nur hin und wieder zu laut. Es ist halt eine Wohnung in Tokyo und nicht auf dem Land. Die Wohnung war auf den ersten Blick sauber, aber das Bad hat seine besten Zeiten schon hinter sich und da kann man wahrscheinlich noch so viel putzen, der Schimmel in den Fliesenfugen geht so nicht weg. In den Schränken war leider kein Platz für unsere Sachen und es roch etwas muffig. Die Küchenausstattung ist etwas dürftig und nicht alles was auf den Fotos zusehen ist gibt es auch tatsächlich. Der mobile Hotspot ist etwas zickig, aber wenn man immer zuerst den Browser startet geht es meistens. Wer mit einem Japan Rail Pass unterwegs ist, für den ist die Wohnung gut gelegen. Ich würde die Schulnote 2- vergeben, auf Grund der Summe der vielen kleinen Mängel/Unzulänglichkeiten. Wir hatten trotzdem eine schöne Zeit in der Wohnung und in Tokyo.
Absolutely loved this wonderfull place in the center of Tokyo! It is very close to the Meguro station, which is very close to all the hotspots in Tokyo. It's clean and cozy, and more then enough space. Beds are comfortable and you dont hear a lot of noise. Below the appartement is a great supermarket. Gue (Will) is very helpfull and a good lad.
