We arrived at Tammys a little late as we got stuck at the airport so unfortunately missed meeting tammy however she had left the key and a little note and everything was pretty self explanatory. The room was great, nice and clean and air con- bonus because Tokyo is a little sticky at this time of the year. The flat could not have been in a better location for us- its literally a 2 min walk to the station, and 1 stop away from the amazing and crazy shibuya. If you want to stay local the little streets of daikanyama are beautiful, lots of lovely little bakeries and unique shops. If you are looking for a good base for Tokyo and be left in peace then I would say this is the place- if your wanting to interact and make new friends then you may be dissapointed, as polite and cuteous as Tammys housemates were, we only exchanged greetings last thing as night, they were busy working- so that's totally understandable.
Thanks tammy and all the best, steph and Martin :)
Tammy was a great host and the cozy room is in a perfect location for exploring Tokyo. The Daikanyama area is just separate enough from the busy downtown (only about 2 stops away from Shibuya), and has several small bars and cafes for a quiet dinner or coffee. Tammy equipped the room with several maps and guides and adorable little candies. It's a shame we didn't get to spend more time with her. I can highly, highly recommend this little hideaway.
We had a really nice time at Tammy's place. It was a great location close to Shibuya station - just one stop away. Everything was set up and clean for us and Tammy left us some guidebooks as well. Although Tammy was away on holiday, her roommate Tomo was very nice and we didnt have any issues. Communication was easy and would recommend this place to anyone.
We can totally recommend Tammy as a host and her room is perfect for a stay in wonderful Daikanyama. Tammy gave us all the information we needed, the room was small but clean and she even draw a little map for us with her favourite places near the apartment. However, we rarely ever saw the other roommates let alone do something with them, so if you're hoping for some interaction, then you might be better off somewhere else.
It was great!!! We arrived and Tammy was the best host ever, she was very nice, always trying to make our stay better. We went for lunch and karaoke night, we had a great time! It is really enriching to share experiences with people who have lived in the place you are visiting. Also her roommate was adorable! We had a great time, everything was clean, perfect, the heater worked perfectly and free wifi. We had a great time and definitely will want to be back to Tammy's. The apartment has a great location in Tokyo. Although it was one room after trying other accommodations in Japan you realise that it was not small at all because everything is very tiny in Japan!
It was great having Tammy stay for a couple of days. She is social and was fun to be with. I'm looking forward to her visiting again soon.
