Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stays in the two apartments this month for our son's wedding celebrations, especially the 'roomy' at the top

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5
My family of 4, including 2 kids (aged 14 and 16) rented one of these apartments for a week's holiday in Tokyo. We enjoyed our stay very much and found the apartment to be very comfortable. It was small, but that's to be expected in Tokyo, but the Japanese brilliance for organising small spaces meant that the apartment was very functional. One child slept on the converted sofa bed, and the other on the floor on an extra futon mattress. The dining table and chairs were folded away every night to make room for this futon, but this wasn't a problem. The apartment is well equipped with kitchen items (we cooked dinner a couple of nights) and also features a washing machine. The wet clothes can be hung on the small balcony outside, which worked well. The bathroom is also very functional and makes good use of the small space with the wet room bath and shower separate from the toilet and handbasin. As noticed by other reviewers, the apartment is VERY close to the train line, but the double-glazing of windows keeps the majority of the noise outside and it wasn't a problem for us. Although the apartment is located a fair way from central Tokyo, we traveled to different areas every day, (eg Ueno, Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya, Akihabara, and we took the train west to Mt Takao one day - highly recommended), so we would need to travel from wherever we stayed anyway. The trains, of course, are terrific and it was easy to get around Tokyo. The area around Nishi-Ogikubo, where the apartment is located, is superb. There are 2 amazing bakeries (St Germaine and Dila) next to the station, a karaoke place across the road from the station and, importantly for us as vegetarians, Hanada Rosso, a vegan burger cafe, just down the road. Great tasting burgers, but you may need more than one. Would also recommend Nagi Shokudo vegan restaurant in Shibuya. Our host, Makoto, was very friendly and helpful, responding to our questions by text and also (thankfully!) responding promptly to fix a blocked toilet on a Friday afternoon. All in all, a great experience. The only downside was that it took 6 weeks to receive our security deposit after our visit. The contract states that it will take 30 days, and this is even far longer than it takes to return the deposit compared to other VRBO properties I've stayed in (it usually takes less than 2 weeks). I'm unsure why LiveInAsia has this policy, but I think there's room for improvement there!

Cheery Apartment in Western Tokyo

  • 4 of 5
We stayed 5 days in this bright and cheery apartment in Western Tokyo. It's conveniently located next to the train station, but don't worry about any noise--triple glazing on the windows prevents any noise from being bothersome. You can walk through a large and well-stocked supermarket to get to the apartment from the train station. There's an outdoor produce market as well as a traditional Japanese sweets shop close by as well. The neighborhood seems to have several interesting cafes, restaurants, and hole in the wall yakitori places, but we were able to only try out a few in the short time we were there. The apartment is well-maintained and the shower is excellent. If we return to Japan, we would definitely consider staying here again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in these apartments for 4 nights with our 6 month old daughter during our first overseas vacation. We agree with other reviews, the place was clean, comfortable, conveniently located beside the 24 hour grocery store, quiet and in a part of the city that isn't touristy so it has more of a resident feel. We didn't cook much, we just had some snacks, but we would have if we had stayed there longer since the kitchen was well equipped. The staff were great, especially since I did not arrange a key pick up and we just went straight to the apartment after a long flight from Canada. They rushed over to meet us and were very understanding about the mishap. The staff member pointed out places to eat around the apartment. We ate at the bakery across the train station (St. Germain) every morning. We would definitely stay there again if were returned to Tokyo (which we plan to do since it was amazing and we loved it).

GREAT VALUE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and stayed at one of these apartments in March 2013 for 8 nights. It was our first trip to Japan and we could not have picked a better place to stay.

Others have mentioned how convenient the apartments are and I can only echo their sentiments. We loved the fact that we could pop over to Seiyu any time of the day or night to pick up whatever we might need -- from snacks to socks. Since you walk through the store on the way from the rail station, it's so easy to stop and get things when you return for the day. There are lots of restaurants in the immediate area too.

The furnishings and appliances in the apartment looked brand new, and having a washing machine was a godsend for a long trip. I am a real stickler for cleanliness and everything was immaculate. The photos on their website are a good representation of the apartments.

Thanks to the double windows (and each window had a double pane) there was no noise at night, even though we were right beside the rail station -- and there was no noise from neighbors either.

I was expecting a very hard mattress like at a lot of Asian hotels, but the bed was really comfortable. My back thanks you for that!

Their staff could not have been kinder or more helpful to us in planning our stay in Tokyo, even going the extra mile by sending us detailed instructions on taking the train from Kyoto to Tokyo (including the track numbers for the trains) -- then meeting us at the Nishi-Ogikubo Station! You just don't see personal service like that any more. Thanks for all you did for us!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cozy apartment may have been small, but it was very clean and came equipped with everything one could possibly look for in an apartment. My cousin and I were very impressed with the way an apartment so small could fit so much.

For the two of us, it was comfortable and affordable as well as so very convenient. The convenience store (which is open 24 hours a day) was literally 30 seconds away and the train station was a minute away by foot. Makoto-san was very helpful with getting us acquainted into the area and was more than willing to answer any of our questions.

An added bonus was that it was located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood that left us women feeling very at ease no matter what time of the day we checked back in.

There are also some great places to eat right around the station. It's a place we definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to stay in Tokyo for a short period of time and most definitely a place we will come back to during our stays in the future.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5
I spent six days with my 15-year-old son in this apartment. It was very pleasant and I highly recommend it. All the convenniences are nearby and the Nishiogikubo station is very near and very convenient to reach all places of interest in Tokyo. Makoto has been very helpful to us--even offering assistance to buy Shinkansen tickets !
