One of the young guy from the front desk was very helpful that it's closed to New Year Eve and my husband got serious tooth pain, that he tried to find the dental clinic that still open and closed to the hotel so that my husband could have emergency fix first.

The staff was friendly but besides that it doesn't have much going for it. Location could be better. As well as room decor. Much better hotels in the area for a similar price. Just a basic no thrills hotel, it would be a great budget friendly hotel but its definitely not a 4 star. If a friend would ask me...

Larger rooms than most of the hotels i stayed in Japan. Very comfortable bed. And a complimentary drink is nice too. We ordered chicken teriyaki and it was really great!! Theres a lot of restaurants nearby too.

Spacious by Japanese standards, the rooms were clean nonetheless. Subway tunnel was just outside (so long as you remember your tunnel number, you'll have no trouble finding your way back). My only gripe would be the lack of a heater. If you're not used to winter, it's a freezing room as the walls are not insulated at all (earthquake-proof, non-concrete...

I made reservation at discounted rate on their website without confirmation received. When sending email inquiry, there's no reply at all. I have been to Tokyo for few times, but first time chose to stay this hotel. The day I arrived was ranining, due to language barrier, they were not able to check my previous booking. Staff in reception was...

The hotel is just fully renovated, except the bathroom. The rooms are of new styles, and large in size. Location is OK, 2 mins to subway exit, but about 10 mins actually reach the train. We have booked a large corner room, so the view is better, can see the street. There's a free internet PC at lobby, very convenient....

Clean, small rooms steps from the Ikebukuro metro station. Not the most ideal location for us as tourists, but the price was right and the subway was easy. The staff was extremely helpful and bent over backwards to help us. They recommended a fabulous noodle place a block away. The beds are very comfortable. Not the most ideal hotel for...

An OK hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms, transportation-friendly location being only footsteps from Ikebukuro station. Not exactly the best location in tokyo for a tourist though, as Ikebukuro is a major hub for residential traffic and not much else is out there for tourists to see -- yes, there's large department stores next door but that's like a tourist wanting...

Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme.
