Fabulous 8.6 From 68 reviews

Poor 2.0
Horrible Place To Stay!!
We went to this place. It wasn’t private whatsoever. There was no air conditioning upstairs. The owner was extremely abrasive the second we showed up. It was dirty and messy. No lock on the bathroom door. We felt totally unsafe. So we decided we were gonna tell him that and ask him for a refund. He argued and argued with us about how he wasn’t going to lose money off it. Agreed to pay us HALF back for the next 4 nights. So we lost about $150 over it. Then he demanded we pay the fee that he pays to for our booking. We said no. Eventually he said pay half and we gave up because we wanted the rest of our money back. It was insane. He also argued with me about getting a receipt. He said he doesn’t give receipts. I said I paid you in cash I need a receipt to prove that Oh also he made me pay up front and in cash

Amazing stay
I had a great stay, Tak was an amazing host, and spent the time getting to know us all, which made us all get to know each other and make friends. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Tokyo, despite it not being in the city center.
