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

This accommodation was pretty average. The room was small and the air con didn't really work. I stayed here for my last 2 nights in Japan. 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).

We arrived late in Haneda airport, and took a taxi which costed about 9000 JPY (had no choice, buses were not available after midnight if I'm not mistaken). This hotel has the price of a good hotel to be honest. It's pretty pricey for such a small room, and it was pretty hard to place two "checked baggage" in it.... More

Hotel itself is fine, very basic small room as expected for the price. It is in a business district, it has some eateries around and it is fairly close to Tokyo station. But compared our stay in Ikebukuro, this part of Nihobashi seems not as interesting. Staff is very polite and pleasant.
