We stayed 5 nights at James and Dimitiry's place. Great location just 5 minutes walk from Shinjuku-sanchome and 10-15 minutes to Shinjuku. Close to all the action but a quiet block of apartments. True to photos and very comfortable for 2 people. We didn't meet our hosts but they were very prompt with all queries. We would definitely recommend this apartment!

Very good location only 5 minutes walk from the main shinjuku streets. Everything you need in the apartment, just big enough for two with our luggage. Overall a great stay, with excellent information and communication with the host.

The place was amazing! The apartment was very clean, organized, and much better than I anticipated. James was very thorough with instructions and has thought of every meticulous details to ensure our stay as easy and convenient as possible. I like that there were so many different types of adapters and plugs available since I had forgotten to bring my 3 prong plug for my laptop. I also appreciate the instructions with pictures on how to operate the air conditioner and washing machine. There were plenty of fresh towels available. James also provided great recommendations on places to visit in Shinjuku as well as Tokyo. The place is a convenient 8 minutes walk to/from the closest subway station. I would definitely recommend this place if you decide to stay in Shinjuku. Great experience overall. Thank you James!

A very cosy and clean airbnb, we loved staying here, it's close to all the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku yet very quiet at night so no problems recharging your batteries for the next day in Tokyo :-) We would definitely come again!
