We arrived at 9pm and all the rooms were allocated,with the keys, breakfast vouchers and ready to go. All the staff are very helpful and go out of their way to... More

I would recommend staying at Ikebukuro since it is sort of like the central hub where you could go to most places in a relatively short time. In fact coming from the airport to the hotel was seamless if you can catch the NEX that comes directly to Ikebukuro. The hotel is accessible from the East Exit of the station... More

The b ikebukuro is very well located and easy to find. At the ikebukuro station, follow the East Exit sign and once you are outside, the hotel is slightly on your left, about three minutes of walking. The check-in was smooth and fast with one bad surprise: only one key card per room for security reason. I have been to... More

Cool, efficient, good location next to Ikebukuro station (where you can take a train ot anywhere, including Narita airport), and lots of restaurants, shops, bars. Friendly staff, comfortable room. I would have preferred a Japanese restaurant rather than an Italian restaurant, but I guess for people who are tired of the local cousine or do not like it, it is... More

This is my 3rd time staying at this hotel as I like the proximity to Ikebukuro Stn and ease of travel to most places I visit in Tokyo. Numerous food/shopping options (including pocket-friendly places like Uniqlo, ABC mart, Matsuya, Yoshinoya) are also available within walking distance. I was glad to find that free wi-fi is now availabe in all rooms,... More

This is a good 'tourist' grade hotel. Yes, the rooms are small but very clean and the modern bathrooms quite a feat given their size. You do need to be on fairly intimate terms with your room-mate if you are going to share rooms here. Thankfully I had one to myself! It was at the front on the 9th floor... More
