The apartment is just like as it is described. The apartment was clean, bright from the big windows and new. It is very close to 3 train stations and a Lawson is basically across the street. We had 5 adults and 2 teenagers stay there. Two slept on a futons on the floor. It is tight with seven people but certainly manageable. We liked that the toilet was in its own room and so is the shower and tub. The bathroom sink is just outside of the shower/tub separated a door. So nice since each of these can be used simultaneously by different people. A very nice touch is the heater in the shower room. It was nice to turn it before going in. It's almost like a sauna, though not that hot. April was a bit chilly, so it was nice to have a warm shower room! The apartment has two remote controlled air conditioners/heaters. These worked really well and kept the entire apartment very comfortable. As for hot water for showers, we had absolutely no issues. Never ran out of hot water and no issues with temperature fluctuations. The section of the apartment with the beds can be made private with sliding doors that go completely across to create a private room. This came in handy for changing clothes. There is also a clothes washer and a dryer. My wish would be to have instructions in English on how to use the settings on the washer and dryer. Even how to put in the detergent is not obvious. It does take a long time to dry clothes we noticed. I think providing english directions would help the visitor greatly. The other thing that confused us is how to separate the garbage. I had like 4 garbage bags setup and we could not get it consistently correct with differences in opinion. By the last day I stopped being the garbage cop, didn't want to dig in the bags anymore to correct it. We liked other things like the security system, very quit building, umbrellas you can borrow, and that fact that there is a door between the front entrance and the inside. So you come in through the front door, take you shoes off, then open the interior door to get to the interior of the apartment. This apartment design was really well thought out. We didn't cook anything in the apartment so we didn't mind the small kitchen area. With so many restaurant options just within 5 to 10 minutes of the apartment, why would you want to cook? Even for breakfast, there's a Denny's a couple blocks away and even a Japanese restaurant where you buy tickets for breakfast, go in, and give them the tickets. Hot inexpensive Japanese breakfast just a couple blocks away! Need hot coffee early in the morning? Just go across the street to Lawsons and also grab donuts or scones! If the Shiodome location is where you are looking for, this apartment is a very good choice. I would absolutely stay here again.
