Probably after a year since my last stay, I was back to this hotel again. I've got an extremely good last minute deal on hotels.com and based on my previous experience, there's no reason to decline that offer :) (Actually when I check in I figured out 2 of my friends are staying there for the same period as well!)...

5 minutes walk from station, easy to access to any shops, restaurants and convenient stores. Free wifi and with reasonable speed. Room is not big, but clean and comfortable. Price is good if booking early enough. Overall, good value and choice for staying in Tokyo.

Stayed 2 nights here in the economy double (we prefer a double!!). Small 18sqm room but packed with all you need. The bathroom is a masterpiece of design and engineering. Bed was comfortable (not soft) and the room well airconditioned and soundproofed. All the staff we met were friendly and efficient. The hotel is 300m from everything you look for... More
