We are a family of four (two small toddlers) and were accommodated. There is a full size bed and a chair bed (ikea). There are two sliding doors to separate bed from kitchen (think Manhattan studio). There is a large eating deck, efficient bathroom and even a private washing machine. Honestly, for Tokyo we were quite happy to see how clean and nice it was.
I would give it five stars for what it is - but four in case it's misleading (compared to actual 5* places). It's really great for any couple who will spend time outside the apartment. Perfect for 1 person doing the same. For a family - pretty good. Everything you need if you aren't in the apartment for much more than sleep and a quick meal.
There is a market 1 block away; there is a gym 1/2 block away (3 passes $60), subway is 1 block. I would recommend to my friends, brothers, co-workers, but probably not to well-heeled ones.
The apartment was a short distance to Shinjuku-Hygashi station and only a few minutes to two Supermarkets. The apartment was very well equipped and a big plus was the large balcony. Tasie was very helpful and provided prompt responses to any queries we had. Highly recommended!
From the apartment we had an easy 5 min to walk to the metro, the red light district, restaurants, onsens and shops.
At the end of a big day out it was great to relax in the air-conditioned apartment & catch up on our emails with the free WiFi. We also had access to a balcony where we could enjoy the balmy evenings and also dry our towels etc.
Our host provided clear & helpful instructions about the apartment, local attractions, restaurants, metro, best onsens, transport etc.
This apartment is in a quiet & very convenient part of Shinjuku.
The flat could not be in a more convenient place! The owner is always great at communicating, and is very accommodating.
