Unfortunately the review has to be balanced with a couple of areas for improvement. Upon arrival, I was communicating via text with the apartment manager (a Brit or Aussie) and assumed he would meet me at the Washington Hotel. However, an Asian man dressed quite casually met me at the hotel. Having spent many years in crime-riddled countries, it made me uneasy to have my family follow a man I didn't know I was meeting up with. He ended up not being an axe murderer but I wished I didn't need to employ my Spidey senses while on holiday in Japan. In the apartment, the bathroom was smelly...similar to when the sewage pipes are refluxing. We thought it would go away but it did not. If I'm not mistaken, there was no fan in the bathroom. If there was, it did not remove the smell. No shower curtain for the shower. Even though there was a drain on the floor, it would be soaked after 4 people showered. Finally, on check-out day, we wanted to get a decent breakfast before travelling for 20+ hours back to Florida and needed an extra 30-45 minutes to avoid having to run or taxi to and from breakfast. I was denied that time despite offering to leave suitcases packed and locked wherever they wanted so the cleaning folks can do their thing. I thought that was unreasonable and caused me a stressful morning rather than a leisurely departure from a wonderful vacation. Finally, the garbage situation in the building is confusing. There are several bins on the ground floor and it was difficult to decipher where things went. I got scolded in Japanese by someone for not putting my garbage bag in the right bin. No biggie but I am enviro-conscious so I wanted to do the right thing. I just couldn't figure it out.
Hope this all helps. Enjoy Tokyo!!!
1. Add a few hanging bars in the shower.
2. Better pillows. Most of the existing pillows for the sofa bed are really flat and we needed to use a few to stack them, which is not really comfortable.
