Our second stay here in 9 months and if we return I will seek it out again. Love the location and the apartment. A great area with everything Tokyo has to offer easily accessible. The local eatery's are magnificent too. This joint really is living Tokyo style. Thanks for having it available Will. I highly recommend this place to anyone.
The directions for the apartment were accurate and we found it easily. The apartment was generally very good and was clean. Everything worked well.
It has a really great location. Quite near to go to Akihabara and Asakusa, and convenient to go to any place from here. and it is a really lovely and quiet place. It is very good for a couple. Btw i really like the check in and check out system, very convenient. Will is a really nice host.
Three colleagues and I stayed at Will's place for a couple of nights before leaving Japan. The apartment was definitely cosy for four people but not uncomfortable. The location and proximity to the metro network are great (especially for sightseeing in the eastern part of Tokyo) and Will's instructions were excellent for finding the place in the maze of Tokyo's streets.
la prise des clefs s'est fait rapidement et facilement.
L'appartement est parfait pour un court ou long séjour.
Great location, price and facilities. Excellent directions from Will and we found the place no problems. Suited our family of 4 just fine. Thanks Will.
The place is a decent size for Tokyo standards. More than comfortably fit for two. It's like staying at a friends place while they are out of town. Its a short 5min walking distance from the subway and there are more than a handful of places to grab food and snacks any time. The absolute best thing about this rental is the pocket wifi that is included with the stay. It was a God-send. The heater works great, don't know about the aircon as we stayed in January.
Stayed in this apartment 12 nights during new year, family of 3 adults.
- portable wifi: This changes your vacation. Trust me it is so perfect for Tokyo! Should come here even only for this. Amazing idea, will!!
- check in: will's check in and practical information are perfect. You Will never be in trouble finding the apt or guessing where the house is. Everything is easy and runs smoothly.
-location : super easy to arrive from both airports (invaluable when you are loaded with luggage), just be sure to take a local (not express) train of the asakusa line, if not you will have to go back one stop. Convenient to get to almost everywhere via metro. The neighborhood is amazing, very typical and with lots of good restaurants.
- House: perfect for 2 people. The kitchen is a plus especially for breakfasts (do yourself a favor and eat out in Tokyo!!) . A Tokyo and a japan guide are in house for you (lonely planet)
- host: will is quick to answer and very helpful
- furniture should be updated to make the house more "welcoming" especially the living room
- 3 people could feel a little cramped in
Overall: highly recommended, especially for 2 people. Perfect with some minor renovations.
Although we did not meet in person, Will was communicative and responded very quickly to all our queries. Will's apartment is located about 5 minutes walk from Ningyocho station on the Hibiya line. Not exactly in the centre of all things happening in Tokyo, but close enough to Tsukiji and Ginza. The directions given by Will in the itinerary were very accurate and we strongly recommend that you follow them exactly when finding your way to the apartment. There is a Family Mart and 7-11 nearby, so getting supplies was very convenient. The apartment itself was a bit of a squeeze for our family of 5, but it was otherwise clean and comfortable with a small kitchen equipped with all necessary utensils. The only unpleasant incident we had was when the hot water ran out while my wife was in the shower on our first night, which can obviously be a problem in the middle of winter! Suffice to say, we learnt a valuable lesson in conserving water that day!!
My stay at Will's place was really good. The location was very central and just a 5 minute walk to the Ningyocho station. The mobile wifi that Will had provided was just perfect to plan our trip around Tokyo and even worked in the remote places we went to (like Chichibu and Aomori).
Though the apartment was a bit small, it was comfortable for a family of 4. Overall my stay at Will's place was great and I would definitely choose his place again the next time I visit Tokyo.
