We had a wonderful stay in this apartment in the Otsuka area of Tokyo back in February. Three of us stayed in the apartment for 10 nights. It was a five minute walk to Otsuka station, which is a stop for the Yamanote Line, which runs in a circuit around Tokyo. (If you're ever lost, the Yamanote line either way will bring you home to Otsuka Station!) It was very convenient. We even walked to Ikebukuro's Sunshine City when we weren't too tired. (You could also just take the train one stop down!) The apartment was clean, and there was no noise from neighbors.
We really only were at the apartment in the early morning and in the evenings, as we spent the rest of our days out and about in Tokyo. It was February, so it was a bit cold in the main room, but the bedrooms both had heaters that kept us very warm. The rental office was easy to find (our plane was delayed so we met someone up at the bar across the street from the station to get our keys - they even gave us coupons for free drinks, which we sadly never ended up using) and they gave us plenty of documentation, including emergency numbers and even a translated page on how to work the washer/dryer and shower! (Don't be alarmed - the shower talks!)
There were several restaurants (including McDonalds) within walking distance. We ate at the little sushi place on the way to the station, and enjoyed it. The only thing that it wasn't super convenient to was the Ueno area, since that is basically on the other side of Tokyo. But even that wasn't really too far. And for Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, and Shibuya, this was very close.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in the Otsuka/Ikebukuro area! Thank you again for a wonderful stay!
We stayed in this apartment on our arrival in Tokyo. It is well situated in a quiet area near to the JR Yamanote circle line which is very handy for most places you want to go to in Tokyo. The affordable stay office is close by and the service that we received was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. The apartment is quite small but very efficiently equipped and clean. There is everything you need and it all worked properly. We were very happy with the portable WiFi. The mattresses are adequate.We enjoyed our stay so decided to book it again for the last few days of our trip. We recommend it.
We had a great time in japan. My family and I are originally from Japan and just went to visit family and friends.
This unit was really good location to go anywhere in tokyo.
First you need to grab keys from office, which located on the way to the unit from train station.
People in office is nice and polite.
Unit was about 5 min away from train station.
Free WiFi has limit of 2GB. No problem if you just using for calls or for few days. We stayed 2weeks and I have 2 kids, so I rented unlimited mobile WiFi from defferent company. ( it was for my kids to watch and play ipad.)
Otsuka station is not a big station. But it has so many eating places and shops including daiso (the dollar shop)!
On the way to unit has tenka sushi(so cheap and good), Mos burger (good to eat for breakfast). And convenient store like 711 is by station, and ministop(known for ice-cream cone) is located in front of unit.
This Unit looks clean and well kept.
I didn't think we need the hockey game table, but from 1st day, my kids enjoyed it. So that was nice.
My only wish was I wish they had TV in there. I like watching Japanese news and comedy shows.
This unit has a big refrigerator. Enough space for storing chocolate snacks, or perishable gifts in hot days.
AC works great. You do need to keep one of the room to be open if you want living room to get cool too.
Beds are on hard side. But clean.
The floor was carpet and little dirty. We always put their house slippers on. My son's socks was black after 1day. As long as you keep your slippers, all good.
There is hospital near by so once in a while you will hear ambulance. But not every day.
The last day, all you need to do is to take out trash. We had dirty diapers so we took out some of our trash everyday. So easy.
I highly recommend this place. Very cozy.
