About this listing
This is a large, beautiful apartment right in the center of Tokyo. Perfect for families, two couples or just a pair of travellers who love their personal space. You will love having this apartment as a base for exploring Tokyo.
This is a very spacious apartment in Nishi-Azabu -- a four min walk from Roppongi Hills, a commercial and architectural landmark in central Tokyo (and home to the Grand Hyatt, if you would like to compare the prices of similarly located luxury hotels), and Roppongi Station. Also, less than 2 kms from Shibuya or Omote-Sando/Harajuku. The apartment is 101 square meters, with two spacious bedrooms, each of which have very comfortable queen-size beds. The apartment also includes two bathrooms, each with a shower, toilet, sink, etc. It also includes a full kitchen, living room and dining room.
Air conditioning / heater, wifi, washer and dryer, dishwasher and dishes, etc. also included. Many of the appliances have Japanese buttons, but we now provide English instructions to guests.
This apartment is great for families with small children, two couples, or groups of friends. We can provide extensive restaurant recommendations (including options for kid-friendly restaurants), informed nightlife recommendations, help with restaurant bookings, and sightseeing recommendations.
As of January 12, 2015, we also provide a pocket wifi device that can be carried around Tokyo. For guests booking after that date, we have built the cost of the device into the rate for the room. Guests who booked prior to January 12 will pay a small separate fee to use the pocket wifi (if they wish to use it).
Absolutely no smoking except on the balcony.
Use common sense about activities that would annoy neighbors.
This apartment's location is what our family needed: quiet neighborhood but close enough to transportation and malls/hubs. A short 5 minutes walk takes you to the Mori Tower and observation deck, and the surrounding restaurants and shops.
We never met Walter or Nathan but they were helpful with questions and info and responded quickly via email.
The apartment is spacious and located in a pleasant building/neighborhood. The furnishings are basic and getting a bit old, but still kept clean.
Just a note to JR Pass holders: the nearest stops to the apartment are not JR stops but I still think it is quite accessible.
The apartment is indeed huge and the location is fantastic. Walter (aka Nathan) was very helpful and responsive.
Not only was the apartment a very nice Tokyo apartment, but the hosts provides us with extensive information about the appliances, the area, restaurants, etc.
The location is extremely convenient for sightseeing, right near Roppongi station to catch either the Hibiya or Oedo lines, which provide great access to sightseeing and links to other transportation.
The 'pocket wifi' that is included is also invaluable for being able to use apps such as the Tokyo Metro app (extremely useful_ and google maps (you'll need it!).
We had a great time in Walter's apartment. The location could not have been better - Right in Roppongi Hills. There is a convenience in the next building over so great for grabbing necessities and only a few minutes walk to the metro station for running around Tokyo.
The apartment was very nice and clean too with all the appliances needed for a great stay. A nice quiet apartment building too.
Walter was helpful the entire time - Sending a text to make sure everything was in order within a few hours of arriving and helping make reservations at great restaurants during our stay. He provides a very complete list of local places to eat and we went to two or three and they were all great.
We would highly recommend this apartment and Walter as a host.
We had a great stay in Walter's apartment. Check in and check out was really easy and his roommate Nathan provided great instructions for how to use all the appliances as well as tips of restaurants and bars in the area. The apartment was really big by Tokyo standards and was a great base to explore Tokyo as it offered good connections to lots of places. Overall a great experience. Our only complaint would be that the kitchen could be equipped with more plates and glasses and perhaps a toaster as we had breakfast in the apartment every day. But if you're having all your meals out it's not a problem.
This is a wonderful apartment. Thank you very much.
Looking forward to stay with you again.
The location of the property is convenient, and it is well equipped. Walter and Nathan was very helpful whenever we had any questions. As others have mentioned, the unit is very spacious, especially for Tokyo standards.
