Sunny cozy independent APARTMENT (43 sqm - 470 sqft) WITH 2 BEDROOMS in the heart of Tokyo:
- 8 min subway to Tokyo Station
- 10 min walk to Tokyo University
- 5 min walk to Tokyo Dome
The apartment is perfect for 4 people but can host up to 5.
It is furnished in Japanese style. This means sleeping and seating on the floor. There is also a western style table with chair in the kitchen.
I provide everything is necessary for a comfortable stay (towels, amenities, pillows, etc..). You can find almost everything you need, since I am used to live in this apartment. I usually rent it when I am out of Tokyo for trips.
Unfortunately there is no elevator (4th floor), but on the other hand the place is very sunny and a nice terrace is available for the guests.
The apartment is very well located, within a walking distance from 4 different subway lines. From there you can reach the most interesting spots in Tokyo in a few minutes.
Smoking is allowed only outside in the balcony. There is hi-speed wifi internet (100Mbit) WiFi. You can also wash your clothes and iron it. The kitchen is very well equipped.
Please feel free to ask any question. Thank you

Interaction with Guests
I will try to meet the guests for the check in. In some case my work won't give me the chance to meet personally. In that case, I will give you all the necessary information for the check in.
In the apartment you will find a booklet with all the instructions for the apartment, security tips, useful numbers, map with attractions nearby.
The area is residential but well equipped in terms of shops, supermarket and restaurants. The neighborhood is quite and the apartment is facing on a small park. It is amazing, in the spring, to wake up and see the cherry blossoms. Nearby, on a walking distance, you can find the Tokyo Dome complex. It is recommended for the families, since you can find there an amusement park for the kids, as well as many shops and restaurants. There is also a wonderful Japanese traditional park called Korakuen Garden.
Amazingly connected with the rest of the city, 4 subway lines meet near the apartment. From there you can reach almost any part of Tokyo within 20-30 min. Please see the subway map to understand how central is the apartment.
Please respect the following rules while staying here:
- Take off your shoes at the entrance
- No smoking in the apartment, only on the terrace or balcony.
- Avoid noise especially after 8pm
- Switch off air conditioner/heater when not there
- Pay attention not to damage furniture, especially paper doors
Matteo was extremely helpful. He sent lots of information prior to our arrival, answered all our emails promptly and was even there to greet us. He allowed us to check out late and could not be faulted for helpfulness.
We enjoyed our stay, although we would perhaps hesitate to recommend this apartment to a family like ours with young children, as the level of care to be taken with the paper walls (we did not pick up from the description that the paper was everywhere!), was rather overwhelming. It would be no problem at all if we were without the kids, but with two boys, aged 6 and 8, we were on high alert all the time and therefore chose not to spend any real time in the apartment (aside from sleeping) as we were nervous of their damaging something. This made for a rather tiring holiday.
This is our only concern as everything else was as described.
Great and peaceful location. Walkable distance to the market, restaurant, train station, and even Ueno Park! Very accommodating and venue is really spacious.
On arrival, our group was happy to find that the apartment matched Matteo's listing. The flat was neatly set out and included detailed instructions for all the house utilities.
The location was great for our stay in Tokyo allowing us to catch the local subway to most parts of the city. The wifi provided was great for our group providing us with a means to plan our travels. The toilet and shower facilities worked fine. The rooms had enough space for the 5 of us but any more would be a squeeze.
Overall we had a great stay in the apartment and would recommend it for groups and travellers wanting a relaxed stay in Tokyo.
The listing and floor plan was accurate, though the photos do appear to make the rooms slightly larger than they are. The location was great, less than 10-minute walk from the train station and the neighbourhood is quiet (despite being in Tokyo), with the convenience of a supermarket only a 2-minute walk away.
Matteo was very helpful with providing instructions and direction on how to navigate the Tokyo metro to work our way from the airport to the apartment and even provided us with pictures on how to find the apartment, which proved very valuable. Overall very pleased with the apartment and our experience. Definitely recommend it!
We love the balcony.
We love the tiny & cute room decoration.
The 5th floor is okay for us.
There is a public bathroom far away from the building about 150 meters, it is closed about 1:30 A.M. & it is perfect for all travelers after long day trip.
We would visit this Sunny again if we have got a chance :)
The description of the apartment is fine. May be one point is missing that the air conditon is only in one room and if you need two bedrooms you need to consider this in particular when you travel in the hot season. Anyway we liked staying there although August is not the best time to visit Tokyo as it is really hot and humid (but this is not Matteos fault :-)) The apartment is located a few minutes from the next subway station and it is convenient to reach interesting spots in Tokyo. Matteo was very helpful and explained everything. We can recommend his place.
We stayed for 8 nights and had a really great stay there. It's a bit smaller than we expected, but it's clean. Everything we need is available.
