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

This is a Japanese business hotel, not an international luxury hotel. Functional, efficient, with rooms that are slighter larger and better furnished than a typical business hotel. Location: On a quiet neighborhood side street very close to the Main Gate of Hongo campus. Five block walk to subway stations on both of the Tokyo subway systems. Great location if you... More

We stayed there for a conference at nearby Tokyo University but the position is convenient for many parts of Tokyo - close to Ueno Park and an easy subway ride to Maranouchi, the Senso Ji temple at Asakusa and electric town at Akihabara. The immediate neighbourhood is a bit of old Tokyo, small shops, restaurants and dwellings with people going... More

I went on a business trip to Tokyo and attended a conference. I stayed in the Hongo Forest Hotel. The hotel was extremely decent and above average by all standards.

Nicer than the average business hotel, this is a great place to stay if you have business at Tokyo University. Not convenient as a base for tourists, though. It's in a very quiet neighborhood about 2 blocks from the Main Gate of the University. Rooms are of decent size. The restaurant is nice and the the vending machines have everything... More
