Stayed for 5 nights at this hotel with my wife and my son. Location is perfect, there is a Family Mart 24hr store downstairs, a minute walk to the JR stations and department stores like Seibu, and a 5-10min walk to get yourself plenty of food options after midnight. The room itself has nothing special, and it is relatively small.... More

I had the most terrible experience I had ever encounter with a hotel. This is my last night in Japan and I asked the hotel reception for help in organising transport to the airport tomorrow. Not only did she not know the options, when I asked if she could make a reservation on a limousine bus to the airport that... More

This hotel was in an excellent location - close to major shopping venues and subway station. Plenty of eating establishments nearby and an excellent restaurant inside - breakfast buffet included authentic Japanese cuisine with American variations - remember to request non smoking room AND floor - it took us 3 days to get smoky smell out if our room

My biggest surprise with this hotel was how quiet the rooms were, despite being next to Ikebukuro station. The sound-proofing is amazing. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet as there was a large variety of western and Japanese food available, so you can easily try a range of things. There is even corn-flakes... More

Loacation is fine. It takes about 8minutes to walk to the station. We stay here because it's the Tokyo Marathon's contract hotel. The Tokyo Marathon deal is good. But the room is really tiny. If you don't mind the size of the room. It's clean and with fine loacation .

I liked this place, clean, neat and the standard rooms are not too cramped, considering they are in the middle of Tokyo. I have stayed in other Tokyo hotels and sometimes you feel like you paid for a capsule, not here, you actually do have two or three feet of floor space (a little more, but you get what I... More
