The b ikibukuro is a clean, efficient and comfortable hotel in a fantastic location. No more than 5 minute walk from the station. Close to all of the shops cafes and restaurants, for the price, I would go back to the b ikebukuro tomorrow.

I only stayed for one night but wish it had been longer! The bed was very comfortable, and the shower was great. There were like four different water source/ pressure options. Also, breakfast (included) was good. Wifi was included.

Before checking in in the B Ikebukuro, I stayed at a hotel in Shinjuku area which was quite disappointing. So I was really glad to see my room in this hotel. I stayed at the triple room and I loved it. It's quite spacious, especially when you think it's Tokyo where space is very limited. Everything seems brand new and... More

Spacious, high tech shower, luxurious Shiseido products to use, delicious buffet breakfast with lots of atmosphere (dim and Italian style) and close to train station and shopping centre and restaurants. Ishin hotels are reputable, fantastic quality and great value for money. Would definitely stay in this hotel again.

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.
