Even though we didnt saw Sven himself over the time we stayed at the house,everything was fine - the older couple living there gave us the key and showed us around. Room was clean and big. Perfect :)
We never saw Svence and the house was very dirty. The heating of the room was so good and we liked the room. The place is close to the station.
While I did not actually get to meet Sven, he was very helpful in getting my friend and I situated in the house. On arrival, the owners of the house were very welcoming and promptly gave me the keys and showed me around the house, even though I arrived at 1 a.m. (one small note, the house is owned/managed by one Sven's associates, which makes little difference in the hospitality).
Around the house there are instructions posted in English to let you know how the shower works (it's a little complicated), how to separate the different types of garbage, and how the thermostat works. There were about 3 or 4 bedrooms in the house all being rented out, our room was a good size for two people. The shared space in the house (kitchen, bathroom) were kept fairly clean by a housekeeper that I met on my first day. Personally I thought the house was kept clean, but honestly if you really are a neat freak you might be a little below your standards, remember this is a home and not a hotel. Keep in mind there's only one guy routinely cleaning a decent sized house with about 4 rooms worth of renters.
The location from Tokyo was great. It's maybe a 10 minute walk to the nearest station, and from there probably 20 minute ride into the city. It's definitely not in the heart of the city, but my friend and I very much enjoyed living in a suburban area outside the city while staying in very close proximity. The neighborhood is very quiet and charming. It's definitely a nice area to live in and the neighbors were very friendly. This is a great place to stay if you're visiting Tokyo and want to get a good feel for life just outside the city while still being able go into the city and have fun.
First I have to mention that throughout the entire length of my stay I did not get to meet the host, but that is likely because it was the holiday period. The directions provided were very clear and precise, able to find the place immediately. The location is in a very quiet neighbourhood so hardly had any disturbances. Amenities are very close by (5 mins walk) which is a big plus for me. All-in-all I really enjoyed my stay especially for a lone traveller like me, almost feels like a second home now. Will definitely consider renting again if I'm going to Tokyo!
We never met Sven but this was no big deal as a lady welcomed us and showed us the ropes.
The local area has quite a few good bars/restaurants. Although there is limited English at these, the owners and other patrons make you feel incredibly welcome.
Getting around is very easy as the Yamanote line gives you access to many of the major sights and is free to use with a JR Pass.
I would definitely stay here again.
It wasn't the first time at Sven's house. Actually, everything is very convenient for me there, close to the train station, only 30mn to Shinjuku, a spacious room, and Sven is very friendly.
Now, I know where I will stay each time I'm coming to Tokyo.
The room is quite good. There are plenty of space for 2-3 people. There also are several convenient stores nearby, so you can buy any items/food. The unit located on the private railway, not on the main JR/ metro subway, it takes 5-10 mins to get to the main stations. By the way, Sven is such a nice host.
체크인은 밤늦게하고 체크아웃은 아침일찍하여 sven을 만날기회는 없었지만, 잠깐 마주칠때 인사하곤 했습니다. 호텔과 다르고 한국과 다른 문화때문인지 조금은 당황하였지만 (바닥 카펫이라던지, 그래서그런지 청소가 안되어있다던지) 하지만 일단 3박 다 잘 지냈습니다. 역과의 접근성도 좋고 동네가 예뻐서 기분이 좋았답니다. 오히려 터치가없어서 전 좋았어요. 화장실이 공용이여서 기다리고 기다렸지만 큰 불편함은 없습니다.
Upon my late night arrival, Sven was there to give me the keys and a run down of everything I needed to know. He was a great host, although I only saw him maybe 3 times out of the six days I was there, albeit I was roaming around the city most of the time. I would highly recommend staying with Sven, especially at such a great rate.
The overall stay was mediocre. This place was spacious but needed some attentions to cleaning. Beds we're not as comfortable as we'd like. but location was good.
The benefit of this place is that it's close to the station which was only about a 20 min ride into Tokyo.
Even though we never met Sven in person he ensure that we got to the mansion with the info that was sent to us via email.
