This hotel is a bit old but offers good value for money. Good points - clean, practically next to Kayabacho metro station, relatively cheaper compared to other hotels in vicinity.Bad point - there is no wifi in the room, only in the lobby. Overall it is OK if you are using it only for resting after long day out.

Hotel's location is superb, few steps away from Hibiya metro line and 10 minutes away from JR Hatchobori station which is only 1 station away from Tokyo station. Surrounded by restaurant and convenient stores, do need to worry about where to find food even in the midnight. Room is fully equipped but small, cant really store 2 luggages. Free Wi-Fi... More

So most importantly this is a budget hotel, normally intended for business travelers in a fairly business heavy district. We picked it because it was close to subway lines and provided good access to the city. In that sense it was a huge success. The primary downside of this hotel is that the neighborhood it is in, doesn't have much.... More

The location of the hotel is very good. Just 4 stops from Ginza, easy and short access to many places in Tokyo, interesting for tourists. The best way to get from Tokyo Station is just to take the taxi (price 730 JPY). Also some places to eat within a short distance from the hotel, including the restaurant and café in... More

It was very well located in Tokyo, only a 10 min walk from Tokyo station. There staff were very helpful in helping me workout how to get to where i wanted to go. There... More

The hotel is situated in a good location as there are two subway lines(tozai and hibiya) just few steps away from the hotel. Although the size of the room is small but it has all the amenities including sleeping gown. Wifi is only available at the lobby but LAN connection is available in the room. Room is clean as well...

Although this hotel is not located in the more popular Ginza areas of Tokyo it is however very well located for travelling on the Tokyo & national train system plus only minutes away from the Tokyo Metro lines for getting about within Tokyo. The hotel is very small but friendly staff with room rates which should break the bank. Although... More

Was staying here for 2 nights. Its location is super convenient. The hotel is just above the Kayabacho Station, and it costs less than 1000 yen to take a taxi from Tokyo Station. Located in the middle of Nihombashi, I'd say it's more suitable for a business trip. Rooms are small, but this is the standard in the most expensive... More

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Located just above Kayabacho Station, take exist 1 and the hotel just behind you. The 1st room that we checked in to smell of cigarette and the second one toilet stink even after clean. Overall it is a basic hotel, value for money (approximately USD 50 per room per night).
