I am sorry to say that our experience at the apartment was not a pleasant one. Despite the great location, the apartment was a point of stress for my boyfriend and I on a trip that should have been a completely enjoyable experience.
I was a bit uneasy during the week preceding our stay as our host Mayumi did not contact us with instructions, etc. It was only after I got in touch with VRBO that she responded. Strike one.
The apartment itself was very tiny, however I don't give it bad marks for that as most in Tokyo are. Just be warned that it was small for 2; I couldn't imagine 3 people staying there. In the photos on the listing there appears to be a welcome basket with snacks and amenities; there was no such basket to be found. There was also no toilet paper and we had to use kleenexs that we brought. Also, kitchen surfaces were sticky. Strike 2.
The main issue was the hot water heater -- it didn't work and was flashing an error code. We had cold water and showers the entire time. We contacted Mayumi 5+ times via email and over a dozen phone calls and she was completely unavailable. Not once did we get a response. I contacted VRBO who also tried to get in touch but could not reach her either. To make matters worse, we researched the hot water heater, hoping we could fix it ourselves, and all the literature that we found told us that the flashing error code only appears after one has attempted to reset the heater 10 times. We concluded that this was indeed a known problem and Mayumi was just negligent about fixing it. Strike 3.
I would not suggest this apartment to anyone. The main issue for us was lack of communication with our host. The other things could have been overlooked if she had been in contact with us, but we felt helpless over these small inconveniences.
Very clean and convenient if you are going to spend a lot of time around Shibuya/Shinjuku! It was a bit small for 3 people but a good value, all things considered.
Location is good. 10-15 mins walk to shibuya crossing. Unit is also very clean. The host is friendly as well. The only downside is the size of the room ~ kinda small for family size of 3 but we were able to manage it alright. Thanks for hosting us ,we had great time
Satisfied with our stay! The location was convinient to other point of interest that i visited i would say! And the place is definitely clean and cosy! The host has created a great ambience for the room. Recommended!
