The staff was friendly but besides that it doesn't have much going for it. Location could be better. As well as room decor. Much better hotels in the area for a similar price. Just a basic no thrills hotel, it would be a great budget friendly hotel but its definitely not a 4 star. If a friend would ask me... More

Spacious by Japanese standards, the rooms were clean nonetheless. Subway tunnel was just outside (so long as you remember your tunnel number, you'll have no trouble finding your way back). My only gripe would be the lack of a heater. If you're not used to winter, it's a freezing room as the walls are not insulated at all (earthquake-proof, non-concrete... More

I booked this hotel with www.hotelberry.com , very cheap than book directly to the hotel. This hotel is good location. All the staff are very helpful. It's closed to station. Easy to go shopping ikebukuro area. Very good.

The hotel is just fully renovated, except the bathroom. The rooms are of new styles, and large in size. Location is OK, 2 mins to subway exit, but about 10 mins actually reach the train. We have booked a large corner room, so the view is better, can see the street. There's a free internet PC at lobby, very convenient.... More

Clean, small rooms steps from the Ikebukuro metro station. Not the most ideal location for us as tourists, but the price was right and the subway was easy. The staff was extremely helpful and bent over backwards to help us. They recommended a fabulous noodle place a block away. The beds are very comfortable. Not the most ideal hotel for... More

An OK hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms, transportation-friendly location being only footsteps from Ikebukuro station. Not exactly the best location in tokyo for a tourist though, as Ikebukuro is a major hub for residential traffic and not much else is out there for tourists to see -- yes, there's large department stores next door but that's like a tourist wanting...

Stayed here in November 2003 for 3 nights, busy area but very safe. Staff extremely helpful with a young duty manager (most of whom spoke good english) even volunteering to attend a local pharmacy with me to purchase some medication that was required.

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
