I stayed in a Twin room , the room was surprisingly big and the bathroom is a proper (non-Japanese plastic) bathroom. The breakfast is good enough to set off the day. Only down side is that there is no lift access to the underground platform towards the airport direction.

This is a nice business hotel in Tokyo. Rooms are small (as it's the case with hotels like this one), there's a complimentary breakfast, rooms have wifi, and the hotel is accessible through the Marunouchi, Chiyoda, and Shinjuku subway lines. Most importantly, rooms are very affordable, so the hotel is a great value if you don't want to pamper yourself.

If you have a JR pass, this is a good 10 minutes walk from the JR OCHANOMIZU station. The nearest exit to here would be the Tokyo Metro Marinouchi line, exiting at Awajicho Station.
