Our second time staying in this great spot and totally enjoyed it again. Everything was just as good and just as well organised as our previous stay. Nora had updated a few things in the apartment which made it even more comfortable.
Can't speak highly enough of the Koenji neighbourhood either. It really is a great place to base for a visit to Tokyo. So well connected with so much good food and shopping to find and a great local vibe to experience.
Totally recommend the apartment and the area.
Thank you Nora for your warm hospitality! :)
Nora gave really clear and detailed directions about getting to her building and apartment - really small but very cosy! Definitely very sufficient for one, maybe a little tight for 2. True to her pictures, it's great to have a balcony and a super-duper awesome view of Shinjuku (sunrise, blue skies, sunset, night view)!!! :)
Clean towels and all toiletries are provided for, and Nora had all the basic cooking ingredients, utensils and household items - you really feel like you are living at home! i stayed during winter and was freezing a little (blame it on my tropical roots :p), but Nora was kind enough to provide a heater for me to warm up the room faster.
Safe building to live in and really clean apartment! Location was great - right in between Koenji and Shin-Koenji stations, which means i can get home on both lines. Building is easily recognizable by the Tattoo shop on its right, and Lawson is right opposite the building. Lots of interesting quirky shops in Koenji as well! Will definitely stay at Nora's apartments the next time i return to Tokyo! :)
We loved our time in Koenji. It is such a great place to stay and get amongst life in Tokyo. Has a great local feel with vintage shops galore, small bars and great food everywhere. It's also well connected via the train system with the big lights and wider connections of Shinjuku just a few stops away.
And the apartment is right in the middle of it all with absolutely everything you'll need for a short or long stay - we stayed for 5 weeks. Bright, clean and well appointed it was comfortable - though very cozy for two - and had some very fine views.
Nora is a super host. Responsive and very accommodating. She gave us some great tips and advice that helped us out no end.
Definitely recommend Nora and her apartment.
Nora was a great host, communicated often and responded quickly. The guide she sent us on how to get to the apartment was very clear and the apartment was cozy and in top condition. Koenji is a great area of Tokyo: close to Shinjuku and a lot of the action, but also a lot quieter with its own share of very decent restaurants. My girlfriend and I were always happy to come back to the apartment (which was very close to the train station) after a days exploration of the city. Will definitely contact Nora again when we come back to Tokyo!
Great apt. Small but perfect for one person. Nora left all kinds of nice things in her closets (things to eat, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc…everything that you need and you don't want to buy if you're in Tolyo for a short period.
Its was extremely easy to find the apt located only 5mn from Koenji, very lively neighborhood, good restaurants (it's cheap to eat out in Japan), and to get the keys and when I left, I simply left them in the mail box. I didn't Meet NOra but it was perfect because I speak japanese and I used to live in the neighborhood.
Nora was the perfect host, I asked her so many questions and she always answered very quickly and friendly. The apartment was great, the views of the sunrise are 1000 times better in person!! Very close to the train and you have tons of bars and restaurants when you walk down the stairs onto the street. Comfy bed in a nice clean apt, with fridge and stove top, fast wifi, everything I needed. Thank you!
If you're on a budget and you think Japan is a really expensive place to be, pleaseeeeeeeee (website hidden) Koenji. Its an awesome place to be in. This apartment is right smack in the middle of it all, Lawson convenience store, ramen shops, freshness burger joint, vintage toy store, used/vintage shops, 5 min walk to the train station, what more could one ask for. You would also be awaken by the beautiful rising sun and cityscape on the balcony on the 10th floor. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who's been going to the more popular places like shinjuku, harajuku, shibuya, etc. Get lost in Koenji, it was the best Japan experience my fiancé and I had.
Nora's apartment in Koenji is amazing, and Nora herself is a wonderful, informative host. My partner and I had a fantastic stay there - it's clean, secure and has a great view of the Tokyo skyline from the balcony. Koenji is a super fun neighborhood with heaps of cheap bars, restaurants and vintage clothing stores. The apartment is only a few minutes from the train station and is really close to Shinjuku and Shibuya, which is where so much of the Tokyo nightlife is located. I absolutely recommend booking this apartment.
Cute apartment although very small (esp the toilet), which is normal for Tokyo. Setting up and down the sofa bed can be quite a hassle. Location is good, close enough to the subway and shops. Nora is very responsive and provided all the necessary advice to make this a smooth trip.
Great apartment! Nora was an incredible host and made everything super easy!, koenji was a great neighborhood to stay at, great places to eat, drink and shop... The apartment was very nice, clean and organized...
We would definitely stay here again!
