A lovely apartment in a lovely neighborhood. Recommended by a friend, and now we will recommend again to others!
Great location, small Tokyo style, bit like a ships cabin, nice elevator building.. Nora always responded promptly and was always very helpful!
Nora worked very hard to find a way for us to stay in Tokyo for a month during high season on short notice. The Phoenix apartment was small for a couple, but we were able to manage it for 11 days because of how high-quality the apartment is--everything works well, and while it small, the space is extremely well-utilized. Nora worked very hard to make sure we were happy there. Would stay there again without hesitation, and would definitely work with Nora again.
We stayed at Noras place for 20 days and it was absolutely perfect. It s a bit small for a canadian standards but pretty normal for japanese living. Nevertheless, it is extremly coazy and you really have a nice view over shinjuku. Nora is a great and friendly host. She organized and explained everything to the smallest detail. I really appreciated her help throughout our stay, Koenji is also a very hip place to be. YOu can eat (ramen streets everywhere), shop and relax (various hot springs nearby) very well. Furthermore, you are not are far (about 20-30min by JR/Metro) from the main attractions in Tokyo. 10/10 would recommend.
I really enjoyed my stay in Nora's apartment. It is located in Koenji which is a great area with lots of restaurants and interesting shops.
The apartment is small which is not unusual for Tokyo. The couch becomes the bed at night and the coffee table can fold up.
When I was there the balcony was enclosed with plastic sheets as there was work on the exterior of the building. It meant I didn't get the great view but Nora told me about this work before I booked.
The building is very secure with key entry. I should mention that the nearest coin laundry is near the 24hr Seiyo supermarket which is on the west side of the Koenji 'Pall' covered shopping mall walk. Go to the traffic lights nearest the apartment and head west, cross the mall and keep going 100 metres. Turn right (north) at Seiyo supermarket, the laundry is just past the Rainbow Cafe on the corner.
I'd happily stay at Nora's apartment again.
We LOVED Koengi and Nora's place is the BEST place to be!
Koengi is a quiet town full of small independently owned shops (mostly clothing) - real cool, interesting and fun!!!!!
Also, it's a GREAT place to be if you have the JR Railways pass (Koengi is a JR train station)
Nora's apartment was VERY well appointed with a nice view (too bad the building was being renovated at the moment we stayed and the view was covered).
Clean and complete. Nora's directions were VERY clear and she answered our questions quickly!
Third stay here in Nora's apartment and we had a great time once again. Apartment was clean and in top order as usual and communication etc. was all perfect again.
Koenji is always great to come back to and use as a base to explore Tokyo or just wander about locally for a more relaxed time.
Miss it all already.

About the Host, Nora
Hi! I've been hosting on AirBnB for over two years now.
I have a few apartments in Koenji, very fun part of Tokyo! It is very very close to the major stations in Tokyo, like Shinjuku and Shibuya, yet still has a local neighborhood vibe. Check out the reviews!
Feel free to send a message if you have any questions about my apartments in Koenji!
