From the Isle of Man in the uk. I love travelling, scuba diving and meeting new people.
-Spacious apartment by Japanese standards, with balcony
-Washer dryer in unit.
-Close to a metro (subway)
-Close to the fish market
-TERRIBLE building access instructions left by owners.
-Inadequate bedsheets were left out for us. Had to sleep on comforter covers. Expect to have to wash them for the next guest.
-Bathroom is just plain gross (heavy/pungent mold smell, used razor blades and used crumbled soap pieces left all about).
-Towels shared the same moldy smell as the bathroom. Really nasty. (bring your own!).
Overall not a bad place to stay, with the exception of the bathroom. Decent location (close to a metro) but not that central, if that's what you're looking for.
It was originally booked as a unit to share with the owners; however, they weren't there during our stay. I have to say that I can't imagine staying there with them there because there's only one bedroom... so expect to couch it.
Huge mistake by owners:
Unit key grants access to the building, which they left in the postbox that is INSIDE the building. So... how am I supposed to get in? I couldn't. Had to wait outside, in the middle of the night for 20 minutes until luckily a tenant who walked by was nice enough to let me in.
Once in, I went to the postbox, only to find out that I was given the WRONG code by the owners. After trying the 4-digit code again and again for 15 minutes, I decided to to start using random combinations of the 4 numbers. One combination finally worked!
I brought this to the unit owners attention via email, and to this day I have not had any response or apology from them for this huge inconvenience. Nothing sucks more than traveling almost a whole day and then not be able to access the apartment you paid for because of the owner's mistake. This was NOT ok.
Despite the inconveniences we had a great stay in Japan and didn't let any of these things bother us. Hope the next guess has better luck than us!
The apartment was located conveniently near a JR Station and Metro Station. Great view of Tokyo Tower in the day and night! Having a 24hr supermarket just below was very useful. Though the pocket wifi was not working, Stacey was quick to email and let us know of internet in the apartment. Thanks!
The appartement is very nicely located near a subway and JR station.
The view every morning was great, Even if you go up to the 44th floor you can have a very nice over tokyo. I almost felt at home while being at the apartment especially because the 24hr shop at the first floor.
We stayed their while the owner was away but that was no problem.
The apartment is conveniently located next to JR and subway stations. It is in the modern well-maintained building with a 24 hour supermarket on the ground floor. The apartment itself is fairly large (huge by Japanese standards) and has everything one can wish for. Since Stacey actually lives there (in the past I have stayed in airbnb places that are specifically for rent), the apartment has a "human" feel witch is an added bonus. It has a nice balcony with a view (just as shown in the pictures). Overall it was a very good experience, I strongly recommend that place and will consider it again for my future travels.
Even though Stacey was away on holiday during my stay, she was still incredibly helpful in answering any questions I had and setting everything up before I got there. The apartment itself is beautiful and modern with easy access to train stations that will get you everywhere in Tokyo. I'd definitely recommend Stacey to anyone who's looking to stay in Tokyo. And hopefully next time, I'll get to meet you guys!
Stacey and Helen were excellent hosts, providing my friend and I with a great place to stay in Tokyo. Their apartment was clean, well equipped and well located, very close to useful transport links. They gave us plenty of space, but also helpful tips for getting around and ideas of what to see and do. Thank you for having us!
Can't be happier about the experience.
The place is fantastic, even better than the pictures. It's the perfect flat in the best part of Tokyo. For the start, it's a skyscraper in central Tokyo. It's all new and superclean. The balcony is amazing, ovelooking the railtracks and the Tokyo Tower (very quiet at night, though). Feel like Scarlett in "Lost in Translation" but much, much happier.
It has a splendid living room (that'll be your room, huge for Japanese standards). The bathroom is great and there's a last generation washlet in the toilet (how cool is that!!). We didn't need to use the washing machine but there's also one by the kitchen, also fully equipped.
The subway, trains and monorail stations are all there. It's so easy to get there from everywhere. There's a 24 hour supermarket in the groundfloor. You can even go to Tsukiji market walking.
You'll be sharing the place with Stacey and Helen, they live there and are really nice girls. They are so cool people to talk with and always ready to share their experience in the city and give advice. They will totally respect your intimacy. So easy to live with them.
Cannot recommend it more... Hope to go back soon!
