“THE Place to stay in Tokyo”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

While I could write a review that is several pages long, I will give you only what you need. First off, the owner, Bruce, is a Canadian who responds promptly to e-mail and is very attentive. The apartment's location is perfect for those who want to stay in a local neighborhood that is in one the best parts of Tokyo. The apartment is furnished with two double beds and a small kitchen, and is just a five minute walk to the famous Shibuya Crossing. There is easy access to the subway via a 3 minute walk, which will connect you to the JR line, and there is a fabulous street of wonderful restaurants that is just outside the apartment. As a HUGE bonus, you get a portable wi-fi hotspot to take with you as you explore Tokyo. My friend and I traveled through 8 different countries in 35 days, staying at 20 different hotels, guesthouses, and apartments, and we both would list this accommodation at the top of our lists for the cultural immersion that it provides. You simply won't find a better area of Tokyo to stay in, and if you are looking to live like a local, then this is the place for you.

“Great place and location”

The location is fantastic, only a 10 min walk from Shibuya station.
Bruce was very helpful too, checking in during our stay.
We got there via limo bus then taxi from the airport which was fine and on our way to our next destination we walked to the station with our luggage.
All of the information and advice Bruce provided was invaluable.

It was great having a stove and washing machine.
Finally the wifi was excellent.

“Amazing Location!!!”

Bruce is top-notch! Great meeting him in person after precise follow-up via email. He was very helpful and available in making sure that we got there safely from the airport. Will definitely work with him when we stay in Tokyo next time.

The Shibuya apartment was fantastic.It is down a street FULL of great restaurants and 2 minutes away from a 24 hours supermarket.
5 minutes from Shibuya station. Super close to Shibuya City which was full of great restaurants and a lot of life

The apartment was very tidy and clean and included all we needed to live the Tokyo life! The WiFi Card saved our butts with the GPS/internet and the laundry machines were a really nice touch. Something we would not have in a hotel.

Thank you, Bruce. You are the best. Will be back.
