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

Been staying here everytime we visit Tokyo since 2011. It still looks and feels new, and the location is excellent. Very value for money if you get a good rate. We usually book thru Jalan.net which gives better rates for Japan accommodations. It is small and compact like most Japan hotels, but the toilet does not feel cramped and comes... More

The b is located very close to the train station and in the middle Ikebukuro. So you can get quickly everywhere in Tokyo and at the same time you have a lot of great restaurants and shopping just in front of your hotel. The price is very good for Tokyo. Rooms are very clean, well equipped and perfectly sized. The... More

This was the smallest hotel we stayed at in Japan but still one of our favourites, mainly due to excellent/convenient location. It has good large beds and quiet rooms. It is right at the Ikebukuro station, go to the East Exit sign and once you are outside, the hotel is on your left just past BIC Camera store – a... More
