Room size: large for Japanese standards. Location: very convenient if you are going to visit the Tokyo University (walking distance). Personnel: excellent English -- no communication issues. The breakfast is so-so...You have western and traditional Japanese options... Japanese breakfast could be a bit better. One minor problem: not easy to find if you arrive by subway. By taxi: no problems... More

Spacious hotel rooms (for Japan) one block back on a side street from the main entrance to the University of Tokyo, Hongo campus. Everything in excellent and sparkling condition, king size (western) bed, free WiFi, and even had a small refrigerator in room. The hotel provided separate printed instructions in English to operate AC, TV, etc. You need a map... More

This is a modestly priced hotel located very near to the University of Tokyo and about a 15 min walk to three different Metro stations. The room rate usually includes breakfast, which was OK (both Western and Japanese) but it was always the same (even the same background music). The room itself was large (by Japanese standards) but the bed... More

This hotel has a number of advantages. It is not very expensive, and quiet. Its is virtually next door to the main gates of the University of Tokyo. There are a number of small and fantastic little restaurants just at its doorstep. I tried Emma (on the street down to the university) and it was wonderful - arrive early as... More

There are 3 train stations that are within walking distances,its means the ease to access other parts of Tokyo. Just 10 minutes walk to the Tokyo University .The room is small but quite comfortable for us, with free internet access as well.you can rent a laptop here.

I stayed at Forest Hongo with my wife and in-laws in early September of 2013. Pros - Short walk to Tokyo University - Spacious rooms and bathrooms (by US standards) - Good quality rooms (though a bit dated stylistically) - Very helpful staff - Paid ~ $135 per night - Very quiet Cons - 15 min walk to subway line...

This is a well managed hotel, clean and efficient, and if you don't expect a huge room and/or bathroom (seeing it as it's Japan and space is always limited), you'll probably be happy with your choice. Two things that detract from the overall good experience: the WiFi is only available if you ask for a router at the front desk.... More

I stayed at the Forest Hongo Hotel when I attended a conference at the Tokyo Universityseveral days back. I was very happy with the quietness and calmness of the neighbourhood. The room was very clean and the amenities were just awesome. There are many restaurants nearby.

Stayed at Forest Hongo for a meeting at the University of Tokyo. It is located one block from the main gate. The price seemed reasonable in comparison to some of the other hotels around. A standard room was about $150 US. This included a nice buffet breakfast that had traditional Japanese items, pastries, eggs, sausage, and bacon. The hotel has... More
