A great little appartment located walking distance from Shinjuku station. May is a gracious host and will go out of her way to make sure her guests are taken care of. Current visitors should note that there is some construction activity going on for the façade of the appartment building so expect some noise and disturbance after 9am.

What an ideal place to stay in Tokyo as first-timers! Shinjuku is such an exciting and interesting place, and to have May's apartment as a base to explore the wider area was perfect. May is such a wonderful host. May really went out her way to make checking-in easy (after a long journey), and making sure we were comfortable throughout our stay. The apartment is intimate, but is perfect for a couple who plan on spending little time in the apartment. That said, everything you need is provided and where necessary explained clearly (using laminates) by May.

I was attracted by May's listing the first time I was looking for apartment near Shinjuku. May's apartment turned out to be really cozy and sweet. She prepared everything you need. It's near downtown, 10 mins walk to all mega shopping malls but located in a very quite street with local Izakaya nearby. I didn't get chance to meet up with May this time but she came down upon our first day arrival and explained details about her house. Overall it was a nice and unique stay aside from being at hotels in Tokyo. You feel like home.

We couldn't recommend this Airbnb more. May goes out of her way to help - she even got us our Ghibli museum tickets. The apartment is lovely, great location, and we loved having a balcony and washing machine. Very happy!

Perfect! May was a wonderful host, she goes above and beyond to ensure you have everything you need. She was so kind to meet us at the station & walk us back to the apartment - which is so helpful the first time in another country. We would of been lost without the pocket wifi. The battery only last a few hours once undocked, but we had a power bank that kept it running whenever we were out and about. Studio Apartment is actually very spacious and balcony was a bonus! We had friends staying near by at a hotel and they couldn't move! My husband and I are both 6ft tall and had plenty of space. Only issue was the towels were so tiny & my husbands head hit the roof in the shower- but was seriously no big deal for us at all. The room also gets really bright at around 5am. But after the first night slept with an eye mask and it didn't bother us. Location was amazing, 10 mins walk to the station, restaurants & night life. Highly recommend!!!! Thank you May ❤️

We had an excellent stay at May's apartment. May was very flexible in letting us check in early, as we arrived in the early afternoon. Her communication was very friendly and helpful. May seems like such a sweet person! Furthermore, she always replied promptly. The apartment was very conveniently located, a relatively short walk from Shinjuku station. It might be a little hard to find at first, but with May's detailed instructions we didn't struggle too much. There are a lot of restaurants and shops in the immediate area, which was nice to have. The apartment itself was just as advertised, a small, but very effective layout and with all necessary amenities. We even used the washing machine, which was a convenient option to have. May had also left helpful notes on various items and cupboards in the apartment, which added to its charm. Overall, this is a great apartment, with a perfectly wonderful host. Highly recommended!
