Advantages of a holiday Apartment from My Tokyo Home



I feel privacy is the best reason to book a holiday home instead of a hotel. Hotels typically are designed and built to accommodate masses of people. People are coming and going all hours of the day and night; and if not on the top floor, you may hear people walking overhead, and children screeching in the pool, or babies crying all hours of the day and night. Additionally, you may be near a parking lot, and hear cars coming and going all night long.



With My Tokyo Home holiday Apartments you will have access to a kitchen; usually including pots and pans, dishes and silverware. You’ll be able to shop at the local food market and cook some or all of your meals to your liking. Most of us will go out to eat a time or two or more; but it is nice being able to make coffee and breakfast in the morning, or to whip up a snack when hungry. Your home cooked food will be healthier, and less expensive, as well as more convenient. When you do go out to eat, you’ll enjoy it as a special night out, and will make better restaurant choices because of not being desperately hungry.



If holidaying in Tokyo with a large group, extended family, or a big clan, you can’t beat a holiday Apartment. You will have larger bedrooms, and will also enjoy the benefits of a living room, kitchen, backyard, and patio or terrace areas. These are places where people can congregate and visit in an environment of comfort and peace. Common areas can be used for educational purposes when traveling for work or training purposes.



While trying to accommodate an entire family or group in multiple hotel rooms, instead treat yourself to a large multi-bedroom home with a full size kitchen, fully furnished living room, spacious bathroom, and laundry facilities. The room cost per person can range from $25-$75 and a little more for super luxurious places. Added extras can include balconies, private patios and gardens, pools, playgrounds and beach access. Split the cost by traveling with larger groups. Perhaps this is why My Tokyo Home holiday Apartments are popular choices for extended families, friends, parties, sports teams, and those planning company excursions. Whereas most hotel rates vary according to single or double occupancy, holiday Apartments advertise a flat fee. It is only until you exceed the occupancy that the owner may charge an extra fee per person and it is usually minimal.


Your holiday experience will be different than staying in a hotel. Hotel rooms are designed mostly for sleeping, and not especially pleasant to hang around in. Therefore, when staying in a holiday Apartment in Tokyo you can actually live in the home. The pressure to go out and spend too much money to be entertained is much less while staying in a holiday Apartment. When you do go out, it will be much more enjoyable as it is not so much an escape from a crowded hotel room, but rather a choice of something important to do. You’ll discover local parks, swimming holes, and attractions that are off the beaten path from where tourists typically visit. When visiting the high profile Tokyo tourist attractions, you’ll be able to go home to a real home instead of a tiny hotel room. Living locally you’ll discover treasures that you would not normally find staying in the zoned areas of town.


Often, staying in a hotel, eating at their restaurant or even nearby requires your group or family to follow too many rules. Perhaps you are traveling with a pet, or your group has a lot of children. It is better that they have freedom to enjoy themselves without the constant worry of bothering others. In a holiday Apartment, you will want to be courteous of neighbors. However those neighbors are not behind paper thin walls. Perhaps you have an older family member who uses a wheelchair to get around. This can be difficult getting them up and down stairs and elevators in a hotel or motel. In a private holiday Apartment, you may easily bring them into participation without obstacles. You can stay up as late as you like without bothering anyone, and if you need a midnight snack it is easy to access the refrigerator.


Often parking in a hotel is complicated, expensive, and far away from your hotel room. When staying in a Tokyo holiday Apartment home, you are likely to have a garage, driveway, or parking right out front. For children and your older adults, the car right out in the driveway is a convenience. If you are staying in a hotel with a parking garage you

may have elevators, or stairs and parking tickets of which you will need to keep track. Parking right out front in the driveway is certainly convenient and will not be an extra charge.


All holiday Apartment homes from My Tokyo Home come equipped with a washer and dryer. This is great for washing towels, robes, clothes, bathing suits, and children’s clothing. What a nice convenience requiring everyone to need to pack less, and also, making it easy to keep clothing fresh and clean on a daily basis. Most of the time, this is not an extra charge, and you will not need to take laundry home. This is a wonderful feature of staying in a holiday Apartment home.


All My Tokyo Home holiday Apartment homes oprovide amenities such as a WIFI , Air Con, TV’s. Many holiday homes come stocked with DVDs, books, beach towels, robes, condiments, and many other such convenient extras.


What a benefit if you are travelling with a large group or extended family. Many holiday Apartments have quite a few bathrooms. This is great for large groups who want to get up and out in the morning, or go out in the evening. You won’t have that line of people in a small hotel room waiting to use the bathroom.
