Stayed for 4 nights at the end of March prior to and as part of an Insider Japan tour. The hotel was a great location close to the station as well as well placed for shopping, restaurants and bars. Breakfast was a mix of Japanese and Western (not sure which one covers the meat balls) and was included in the... More

Well, I just love this hotel. They've been excellent to me since the beginning. Free WiFi or Lan connection in the room, free tea, amazing five-headed (or more?) shower system. Very, very clean. Great location. Amazing location really. A two minute walk from the Ikebukuro Station East Exit, and tons of restaurants/bars nearby. The room is a little bit small... More

This hotel is very suitable for a short business trip with a reasonable price. It takes only 3~5 minutes to Ikebukuro MRT station. Many shops (Bic Camera, LABI, Uniqulo, and department stores) and restaurants are around; you can find foods at late night. There are some adult shops near the hotel but it is OK even if you come back... More

Thank you for your stay with us. A room of 22 square meters is a room of the corners, and sound insulation is superior to others. You seemed to be able to relax comfortably and are glad very much. We wait next opportunity and welcoming you soon. Thank you for your comment! the b ikebukuro Front Desk Kishida More

My husband and I stayed two nights in early November. The location is really handy, the directions on the hotel website worked a treat. My experience; - This is a relatively cheap hotel for Tokyo, you will not get/expect outstanding customer service for that price - The rooms are small but clean and manageable When I was planning our trip...

Quite all right hotel, near trains and metro. The rooms are small, but satisfactory in almost all ways. I miss a wardrobe or a place to hang my clothes. All right breakfast. The receptionists were friendly and efficient.

I liked this hotel. It's near the station, and near a whole lot of restaurants and shops. The restaurant was good in the morning for breakfast, with a selection of western and Japanese foods on the buffet (My wife thought there was not enough fruit). In the evening it was a pizza restaurant and wine bar. It was fairly economical,... More

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
