My place is a modern, comfortably furnished Western apartment, 65 sqm, on a 6th floor with 2 spacious balconies, an ideal and comfortable base for you to discover the most exciting city on earth!
It has air conditioning, a modern bathroom, washing machine, and probably everything else that you would expect anyway. The bed is a new king-size Western bed from Ikea.
This place is both comfortably big enough and super-central.
The apartment is in the middle of Tokyo, and all major places can be reached quickly via Akebonobashi subway station (4min on foot).
- Shinjuku, shopping district, or Shinjuku imperial park, in 5min (or 20min on foot)
- Harajuku and Shibuya, fashion districts, or the Imperial Palace in 10min,
- the museums in Ueno, or Roppongi, the night district, in 15min
- Tokyo station for the shinkansen long-distance trains in 20min
- and all of those are also reachable with short, affordable taxi rides.
Many Tokyoites live in a hotel-room sized shoe-box (what we call Wohnklo - habitable toilet - in German), or they live far from the action. Compare my place to living in a cheaper place in a suburb, - already the lengthy commuting to Tokyo's attractions takes away the fun. (that's why I live here).
Search my building on Bing Maps bird eye-view, searchword: akebonobashi - much more comprehensive than the (website hidden) Map. Some reviews to my older, smaller place - I moved to this larger place in the same building 2 years ago. And yes, you can smoke ... but on the balcony only.
Please contact me before booking!
Christoph communicated well and was very helpful. The apartment has a beautiful view and is quite large for a place in Tokyo. We had a great time while staying here. Thank you Christoph!
Views are spectacular and location is convenient to Shinjuku without being in the overwhelming heart of everything.
Great place. Situated in the best neighborhood in my opinion. Its in Shinjuku but not in the "center" of Shinjuku (e.g. the main subway station) which is over the top craziness - its 2 stops from the main station off the Akebonobashi station. We really liked this part of Shinjuku because it has a ton of restaurants and cafes and small stores, its great to walk around. We visited other neighborhoods of Tokyo and compared them to this one and definitely thought this one was the best.
Christoph's place is small (by western standards) but its perfect for 2 people and its cozy. The floor heater is great and it quickly heats up the apartment.
The view is fantastic, looks out towards central Shinjuku.
No complaints. Perfect neighborhood, perfect apartment, it was a fantastic Tokyo vacation.
Definite recommendation for anyone going to Tokyo.
Très bon séjour effectué chez Christoph. A refaire avec plaisir.
Very good trip at Christoph place. We'll come back with pleasure.
My wife and I rented Christoph's place for a week, and it was great. We found the location to be very convenient, and the view fantastic. The following week we stayed in a hotel in Kyoto, and the comforts of his home were sorely missed.
