Awesome cozy apartment near Shinjuku!
In Nakano, just 7 minutes by train to Shinjuku!!
On the Tokyo METRO MARUNOCHI Line.
ONLY 5 minutes on foot to the nearest station.
Great deal for your own apartment in Tokyo.
NAKANO is a NICE, QUIET, spot in Tokyo and very conveniently located. So close to Shinjuku!! Some guests have walked home for fun. I imagine it took 25-30 minutes!
I have a 2nd small unit in this same building on the 1st floor ( same size as this one ) so if you want to rent 2 apartments with you and your friend(s)- THAT'S POSSIBLE
Live with the locals like a Japanese person. This apartment is just 3 stops on the Marunochi line from Shinjuku. The Marunochi line is the oldest or 2nd oldest train line in Tokyo so it goes to all the main places in the city. It is a residential area with prices for locals. There is a 100¥ store across the street as well as a supermarket so you could eat for not much money if you are on a budget. There are small, delicious restaurants nearby including this great curry place. When I have stayed over here, the people seem friendly and helpful. I really think you would enjoy staying here. Of course you can come and go as you please and there is no curfew.

Great little place. You get a whole space for yourself and for what it costs - its great. Wills directions are spot on and its just a few stops from Shinjuku. Great deal. Oh, did I say you get a pocket wifi that you can carry around the city included in the price? So here.
Will's apartment in Tokyo is super cosy and conveniently located to the metro to get around town. I spent 5 night's at Will's apartment and did not have any problems. Although a little drafty in January, the heater quickly warmed up the studio apartment. The place has everything you need- small kitchenette, fridge, hot pot, hot water heater. I think it would be ok for a couple to stay here, but definitely too small for more than 2 people. Its a short 5-10 minute walk to the subway, which is makes it easy to get everywhere. The neighborhood itself is more on the residential side, so most shops and restaurants were closed by 10pm. But during the day I found several nice places to eat. Will has it easily set-up to do a self check-in, which was convenient for me since I arrived past midnight from the airport. Also the wifi is reliable and fast.
NAKANO is very good location. shinjuku, shibuya, kichijoji, shimokitazawa all close to house.
And there is very clean. I think that place is the most efficient place, except that there was not toothpaste and olive oil(breakfast is very important).
I loved sunshine of there. Every morning I waked up happily.
For my first trip to Tokyo, I wanted to explore the Shinjuku/Shibuya area. I also like to have a quiet and comfortable place to rest and rejuvenate between outings. True to its advertisement, this cozy, little flat was the perfect option for me. Located near a station that is less than a 10 minute subway ride away from Shinjuku station, this place is located in a clean, quite neighborhood, almost immediately near a 100￥ grocery! The apartment was clean, small, and convenient-exactly what I wanted.
Will's instructions and replies were incredibly detailed and exact which made finding and getting into the place an absolute cinch. Every direction given had a time described and many landmarks as well (a tired tourist's dream!). I can't brag enough about Will's meticulousness!
Overall it was an A+ experience: DEFINITELY recommend if what you want is a small, clean flat that is in a quiet neighborhood, but very close to very exciting areas. And of course the host!
Prime location and within walking distance from Nakano shimbashi station. The room is very nice and has everything you need. The welcome pack was very helpful and clear. The room is small but is big enough for 2 people, if you don't mind being in close proximity with travel mates. One small complain which to be honest isn't a deal breaker. The drains do smell and can make the bathroom a little unpleasant. But a quick squirt of cleaner will soon sort that out.
In closing this is a very nice place to stay in a lovely quiet part of Tokyo, that is a stones throw away from Shinjuku. Would recommend.
Very well located, cosy and nice place ! Will was a perfect host ! Thank you for everything ! We will come back for sure !
Had a brilliant stay at Will's apartment. Stayed for 2 months and it was the exact place I needed. Small and cozy but offering all amenities you need. The portable WiFi is brilliant and very handy. Could also recommend the place.
Stayed for a month at the apartment and had a great experience, so that I extended for another month. As described the Apt. is neither big nor fancy, but all you need for Tokyo (great value for money) and just ideal if you don't intend to spend your life indoors.
Will was great, understanding and uncomplicated to deal with and always reachable.
I would always recommend this Apt. and Will as a host to anyone who wants to experience the real Tokyo.
Clean,tidy and small aparment in the center of Nakano. Very close to the metro line and very near of Shinjuku (metro 8 mins, walking 25mins).
Also bus station is just around the corner. The description that Will writes here is exactly what you get. The MiFi is a big plus, absolutely great!
Thank you Will!!!
The apartment was clean and relatively well located. Close to both subway and bus stops, there's also ample food and convenience shops nearby. The room is neat and clean, and everything works. Will is an excellent host and communicates promptly, clearly and concisely, which is amazing for meticulous travel planners.
He allowed us to check in several hours early for no charge, which was very helpful. I would recommend staying at this apartment, or another of Will's multitude of properties.
The area was indeed quiet and peaceful, and the mobile wifi which I believe Will includes in most of his properties was extremely helpful and saved us a ton of money on data roaming costs. A HUGE plus.
