BEST LOCATION in SHIBUYA by far!!!

This is your OWN private apartment in Shibuya. The most popular place in town for all the locals, especially young, but old too. Walking through Shibuya is hands down the most UNFORGETTABLE experience in Tokyo. I must go here at least 3 times a week, usually more!

As you can see on map view here on AIRBNB, this is one of 2 apartments I have in the same building that is in the CENTER of SHIBUYA. NOT up the hill (terrible walk with your suitcase) on the way out of Shibuya like the cluster of apartments west. This apartment is actually in the center of all the action ( 6 minute walk to Shibuya station ) and as easy 10 minute walk to HARAJUKU or YOYOGI PARK!

You can find so much to do nearby to do that you probably won't even need a train for a few of the days you stay here. If you want to stay out LATE, this is definitely the place to stay!! You are less than 5 minutes walk from at least 10 NIGHTCLUBS (email hidden) playing almost every night of the week somewhere. There is definitely a place to go every night! You like restaurants? You can find everything in Shibuya!

People who have been to Tokyo before know this is the place to stay. If you don't reserve here, you will wish you had and you will the second time you come to Tokyo. This room may look small but it has been remodeled and is really nice. Besides, this room is all about the location!

  • Will's apartment has an amazingly convenient location. Can you imagine how nice it is that you can go anywhere you wanna experience in Shibuya by walk from where you live? And you can find almost everything you need inside. It's cosy, handy, perfect to a person who travels alone or two really close traveling companions. :P

  • We had a good stay here, but I'd recommend bringing earplugs of you're a medium to light sleeper. Shibuya kids love to party til late even on weeknights... not Will's fault, of course!
    Location otherwise was fantastic. Conbini right across the street, every kind of food you can think of in a 5 minute walk, and a few game centers nearby. Great central location for exploring Tokyo. Fantastic for one person, cozy with two people (bed is for one person), 3 would be a stretch.
    Note of caution: the hot water in the bathroom means business! Very nice if you want a hot soak ready quickly, but it's easy to have the temperature too hot if you don't pay attention.

  • The apartment is small, but this is the standard in tokyo. In any case, it enough if you just want a place to crush and shower.

    The location is very good, just a 5min walk from Shibuya station. Shibuya is full of restaurants and very trendy place.

    We did not interact personally with the host, but all the indications were clear and sufficient to reach the appartment and enjoy our stay.

    It was in overall a good stay and would look forward to stay here again in my next visit to Tokyo.

    The appartment is having basic functionalities, and also some extras, like shampoo, hairdrier,...

    The portable wifi device is particularly interesting, because it allowed us to move around with internet connection available to us. This is specially interesting when you are not familiar wit the city and need (website hidden) maps or simmilar to move around.

    Shibuya is a very central location in Tokyo and there is plenty of choice pf redtaursnts, clubs and shops nearby the appartment.

    The first time you come to the appartment, you might experience some trouble finding it, because it takes time to move sround Shibuya, particularly if you sre new to atokyo, which was our case. However, the indications which the host had provided were good and allowed us to reach safely, even if the location is quite tricky. You need to go to the second floor in order to resch the elevator and then from there you need to go to the fifth floor.

    Another interedting festure id that the host provided a lock with a number combination and the key was kept inside the lock. This allowed us to move around eithout the key and also to divide our group into smaller groups, knowing that each of us would find te key when coming back home. They key was dtored within the number lock next to the door, in a small box for mail.

  • Great little apartment in the very heart of Shibuya. The location could simply not be better. Small, but perfect for a couple of city adventurers looking for somewhere to crash each night.

    Will is awesome as well. Super responsive and his instructions were the best I've experienced yet. This is definitely my new Shibuya home from here on out. ;)

    March 2014
  • Hey,

    The flat is very central and only few minutes walking from the tube station, which is very easy to get everywhere!

    There are plenty of restaurants and bars around…also supermarkets that are open until very late such as Lawson. When tired of Japanese food, there is a close Starbucks!

    Internet works very well and the modem provided, which we can bring with us along Tokyo, helped us massively- not all places have wi-fi!

    Amazing experience at Shibuya and the place is very recommended. Not entirely sure about pricing as all hotels we stayed outside Tokyo were considerably cheaper than the flat. I assume Tokyo is a very expensive city!?

    Bed size is small for a couple so an extra mattress was the best option. Directions by Will were precise and very helpful.

    Best,

    Raquel and Byron

    Response from Will:

    Thanks Raquel and Byron. You left the place in great condition and were awesome guests. Please note though that this is a great deal for Shibuya as it is an awesome location and hotels around definitely cost more. Come back anytime!

  • highly recommended for its amazing location. portable WI-FI device is a life saver, however sometimes the speed was low. Will is a great and friendly host.

  • Very good location. Close to many clubs, walking distance to the popular bars of shibuya.

    The connection to the rest of Tokyo is good, as the shibuya station is really close.

    We were 3 people and it was enough space.
    The couch-bed is a normal size double bed. The other bed is more narrow.

    I can only recommend this place for your stay in shibuya!

    February 2014
  • Excellent location in Shibuya. Apartment is exactly as described and as appears in photos. No suprises and no hassles. And of course, portable WI-FI device is a life saver.
    Recommended.

    February 2014
  • Awesome place, a little cramped but that's to be expected in Tokyo. Right in the heart of Shibuya and was relatively easy to find. Highly recommend this place!

    February 2014

About
I love Tokyo. This place is just indescribably cool. You can stay up all night and find whatever you want, whenever you want. Not only that, I have never felt unsafe here no matter where I was. I guess you will just have to come here and find out for yourself about how awesome this city is!! I have been in Tokyo about 5 years now and there is so much to do that you can never get bored. Also, it's not as expensive as everyone might think. There are definitely cheap places around to eat and drink!!! And ALL the restaurants here are good. I love sports of any kind, keeping busy, and laughing. I also really enjoying spending time with my friends. We eat out, drink, dance, play billiards, darts, and sing karaoke. I love meeting new people too. Nothing like sharing some good stories from around the globe. I am not fluent in Japanese but I'm getting better and usually can get what is needed on my own. I like to enjoy life and live in the moment so I'm pretty easygoing. I have a flexible schedule and still do some teaching here on occasion. I am really getting into this Airbnb thing so I am keeping pretty busy but I will do my best to help you with what you need. Any questions? Any at all, feel free to ask. Finally, It is my goal that people have an awesome, relaxed, and stress free vacation so I hope you choose to stay with me!! I may be easygoing but I am serious about business and relationships. I will make sure that your accommodation here is comfortable and you have what you need. I do have a support network here to help me as well. I now have over 15 places to choose from in all parts of the city so check them out and let me know which place you like best!!! Hope to hear from you soon!!
