Staying at Naoko's place in Roppongi was an excellent experience! The apartment is unusually big for Tokyo at a great price. It's incredibly comfortable, conveniently located and clean. And Naoko and Daniel were perfect hosts- clear, helpful and respectful! I'd definitely stay there again.
Nice building, good location: close to Roppongi metro station (5 min walk): and from there it easy to travel to other areas. The flat itself was clean and spacious by Tokyo standards (much larger than hotel rooms I was looking at, which were three times the price).
Little touches were well received, such as the coffee filter maker and portable WIFI gadget (the latter was brilliant for allowing us to connect our smartphones to the internet while out and about: saving us from getting lost, and making it easier to find hidden restaurants and cafes).
N&D were great communicators: they sent us an emailed welcome pack with simple instructions to find the flat; they kindly booked a restaurant for us at our request and made sure we were enjoying our stay throughout.
Overall I would highly recommend this place, and would use again if I were returning to Tokyo.
We loved loved loved the place. Naoko and Daniel were absolutely friendly and the size of their bathroom is larger than the average size so definitely a big plus! we love the space and the amount of light we get from their big windows. The next time I'm back in Tokyo I'm staying at their place.
Response from N.:
Thank you Charinee! Yes, I think lighting is important and we chose to buy the apartment because it has a 'happy' lighting atmosphere to it! Thank you for staying and we'd love to have you stay again!
The apartment was very clean, comfortable and in a great location. It was exactly what I was looking for. My brother, sister and I were able to share the apartment easily and we had enough space.
The experience of getting to the apartment was a bit tricky without knowing Japanese, but N. Taj provided very helpful maps way in advance that made things easy. She offered to meet us whenever we wanted and she was extremely good at communicating clearly and frequently beforehand to answer our questions. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Tokyo!
Naoko and Daniel's apartment is a wonderful place for all Tokyo visitors who want nice, quite, and well furnished place to relax after a noisy day in Japan's capital. It is big, comfy, and has almost all what you need. It's located in Roppongi, so it's perfect for every city dweller: good food & shopping, nice parks & galleries, and very convenient subway connections. And of course, the very nice hosts make the apartment also worth renting.
Naoko and Daniel have a fabulous apartment in a very central area of Tokyo. The apartment is a great size for 2 people, with enough area to relax as well as sleep comfortably. The bed is indeed very comfortable and the linen was comfy and clean. There is also a very big balcony - although it was too cold to use when we visited, it would be great to open it up in summer and have the fresh air. A great plus is also that the apartment is super quiet, I didn't hear another noise the whole 3 days we visited. Thanks for a great stay, Michael and Victoria
IT. WAS. AMAZING.
The apartment was incredibly neat, beautifully furnished and in a perfect location. We would definitely stay here again. Sidenote, perfect for couples >.-
The only thing better than the apartment would be the hosts. Naoko and her husband are really nice people who we'd love to meet again.
The apartment is really nice and tastefully furnished - simple and functional. It has everything you need to get you started in Tokyo. The bed was super comfortable and my wife and I had such good rest that we didn't want to wake up. The location is also great and very central - Roppongi Hills and many eateries are all within walking distance.
Thank you Naoko for being such a great host and giving us great tips on travelling! Will definitely visit again!
We loved staying here! What a lovely, beautiful sunny apartment. Naoko was a wonderful host and made us feel right at home, she was incredibly helpful throughout. The apartment is well located, super clean and spacious, and the kitchen and mobile pocket router made our Tokyo experience so comfortable and easy. Fantastic!
This is an extremely conveniently located apartment, which has everything you need for a shorter and/or longer stay in Tokyo.
Nao was really nice when she was there for me to pick up the keys and even had some water bottles to fend off the heat.
Two thumbs up and next time I'll come to Tokyo I wouldn't hesitate to use the apartment again.
Naoko stayed with us in Saigon for a few nights in January. We found her incredibly understanding and flexible when it came to making some changes in the reservation and things only improved from there. As a guest she was wonderfully independent, warm and friendly, extremely neat and tidy and just a joy to host. Both my Property Manager and I truly enjoyed learning more about Naoko and we sincerely hope she will stay at our apartments again - she will always be welcome wherever we are.
Naoko is a prime example of why this website works as well as it does and I highly recommend her to anyone considering hosting her in the future.
