Based on the description from YHV, we booked the LB flat as Asia Room was already occupied. The room is freakishly small. It cannot be called a flat. Having traveled Japan extensively, LB flat is certainly the smallest little shoe box ever. It definitely cannot host two people. One has to make a bed on the floor halfway in the corridor and halfway under the kitchen cabinet. There simply is not enough space for two people and luggage. The flat was not clean when we checked in yet we were told to clean it on check-out. There are no cleaning products. We had to purchase these ourselves. Also, the flat does not have any toiletries (something that is always provided in even the cheapest of Japanese lodging) or towels. The room also had a terrible urine-like smell. At the price one should expect more. It is also not so centrally located as the owners believe it to be. Without a rail pass, travel to and from the area can become pricey during longer stays. The area also seem a bit seedy with plenty of homeless people hanging around. That said, I never felt unsafe.
