My partner and I and another couple just returned from Tokyu Stay where we rented 2 apartments form 9 days. You just can’t beat the price – around $150 per night in Tokyo is just unheard of! Tokyu Stay Shibuya is located right off Shinsen station on the Inokashira line, one stop from Shibuya. You can walk to Shibuya, but it would probably take just as long as taking the train there – about 15 minutes door to door. The location is superb! The apartments are in a quiet street, with dry cleaning, groceries, and a myriad of restaurants right outside your door. We ate at the best restaurants in Tokyo right in the neighborhood. Arriving from the airport was also a breeze – we took the airport limousine bus from the airport to the Cerulean Tower Hotel, then took a cab from the Cerulean Tower Hotel to Tokyu Stay – about $10 but well worth the money when compared to a 15 minute walk with luggage!

The staff speak very little English, but enough to get by. Don’t expect superior service – those guys aren’t concierge material! Not very friendly, but efficient.

Breakfast is included, but don’t expect much there either – a couple varieties of breads, cabbage salad, boiled eggs, coffee, orange juice, water and that’s about it. In spite of the lack of creativity or variety, we ate breakfast at the hotel everyday, using that time to plan our day of sightseeing.

The rooms are very plain. Each apartment has its own washer and dryer, which was wonderful to have as we did laundry just about every day. The kitchen didn’t get much use, except for the microwave and the refrigerator. The bedroom is large for Japanese standards, equipped with a table and 2 chairs in case you decide to eat in, as well as a TV, DVD and tape player, alarm clock, wired internet service, phone, safe, etc. Nothing fancy.

The beds and the pillows were a big disappointment as both were very firm, step up from sleeping on the floor. You should consider buying your own pillow at one of the department stores, or bring your own. Not much you can do about the beds, though.

The bathroom was relatively large, with a separate room for the sink/toilet and the shower/tub. Although the sink/toilet room appeared clean enough, the shower/tub room was in need of some serious scrubbing. These rooms in both apartments had very clear signs on mildew growing in the shower/tub room – something I’m sure the management can take care of easily with some good scrubbing! Other than that, water pressure was fantastic – no complaints there.

In additon to the pictures, I also have videos on youtube - check them out too.

I’m not sure if we would go back to this property given the shortcomings with the beds and the state of the showers, but if you’re looking for a very inexpensive, spacious place in a very cool neighborhood and don’t mind a hard bed and some mildew growing in your shower, this place is for you!
