This was our first AirBnb experience and Gilles and Mayumi really made us feel at home. From helpful hints about restaurants to making us tea in the morning, these guys are great hosts and real sweethearts.
The house was not as small as we were expecting from my previous experience with cheap Japanese hotels, so I was pleasantly suprised. The house was clean, and tastefully decorated.
Thanks for letting us stay with you GIlles and Mayumi!
My boyfriend and I had an excellent time staying with Mayumi and Gilles. They were excellent hosts and the description is very accurate. The bed and room were extremely comfortable and although small, there is plenty of space to keep your things out of the way. They are right about the steep stairs so if you have any physical impairments it would be tough getting up them but we had no trouble at all! The neighbourhood is excellent, probably the best part about their place. Meidaimei station is extremely close and is an express station so only minutes to the major stations of Shibuya and Shinjuku. It is also a 10 min walk/5 min bike ride/5 min train ride to Shimokitazawa, which is a really trendy and awesome area nearby. They were so nice to have bikes available for us to use and we had a great time exploring the beautiful neighbourhood with it's small streets and nestled bars and restaurants. Highly recommended!
Gilles and Mayumi are amazing host. They are super nice and keep contacting us all the time. Made us feel warm and relax on our stay. Even when we went to the house they both were away but everything went really well. The house is really nice , cozy and have everything you need. We can buy clothes and come back to the washing machine and wear on the next day! It's really comfortable.
The area around the house is wonderful, quiet and safe. Just walking 5 mins from the train station. On the way to the house has Lawson, Family mart (convenient store) and many retaurants. Super convenient!
We met Gilles and Mayumi on the last day of our stay. We wish we can stay longer. A++++ for Gilles and Mayumi.
The hosts were very helpful in giving us suggestions and directions on where to go in Tokyo and even outside of Tokyo. They also let us use the living room. Also, Malo the dog was very cute and friendly! There are also several famous restaurants around the area that are open till late, even though it is residential/school estate.
The reservation was canceled 40 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Gilles and Mayumi are really relax and were really great hosts. We had a chance to chat with them and they provided us some some tips to on Tokyo and helped us with some restaurant booking (always useful when you don’t speak Japanese). They also offered some bikes if we wanted to travel this way. It’s a good location close to the tram station and some convenient stores. The house was small but had everything you need. The bathroom was a little too small for us (you can’t fit easily two people in it) and could have been a bit cleaner according to us. The bedroom was very confortable and we had access to the washing machine which was nice since we were travelling for a long period. Overall, it was a pleasure to meet and stay at Gilles and Mayumi’s place.
Thank you for your review and comment, always good to be able to improve the hosting. Space is limited in tokyo as you know, a japanese size bathroom that could fit 2 european size persons would be great indeed, unfortunately not many"regular"houses in tokyo can offer such space.
End of june up to september is getting extremely humid and hot with a heavy rainy seasons, we appreciate your remarks and will pay even closer attention.
Très bon accueil, beaucoup de bons conseils et un logement confortable dans un très chouette quartier, calme et près d'une gare. Excellent point de chute pour visiter Tokyo, nous le recommandons vivement.
