Abundant shopping and fd options. Note : best food is found in the back lanes or if eating out is expensive for the budget traveller, wait till evening, when the supermarket food is on... More

We stayed in this hotel on July 30-August 3, 2014 for a family vacation. First of all, this hotel is quite far from Ikebukuro train station, may be about 10-15 minutes walk. Like many hotels in Japan, the room is small and the bathroom is tiny. The bed mattress is also considerably thin and the AC is not cold enough.... More

Department store is right below the hotel.But it closed at about 8:00p.m. I think the hotel is quiet old but still clean. A bit far to reach.It took about 15 minutes walk to reach there because you must pass through a street with numerous people.It would be tired if your luggage is big. Many places to hang around there at... More

The shopping paradise is just less than 5 mins walking. The room is normal standard - clean. I went with my friends so I also have a chance to observe my friend room. Some of the restroom look a bit old but I was so lucky my restroom look newly renovated.

Room is clean albeit a little old. Reception can get quite crowded when tour groups gather. Free wi-fi is only available at the Lobby. There is a Family Mart (local convenience store) located in the hotel. Hotel breakfast is quite good, with Japanese and western selections.There is a shopping mall right next to the hotel so it's convenient to do... More

The lobby connects straight to the very large shopping center Sunshine City. There are many place you can eat. The hotel is quite... More

This hotel is the most convenient thing you'll find in a big city where it might be easy to get lost. The lobby of the hotel is merged with a huge mall that has everything from souvenir shops to tea stores to restaurants. There's even an aquarium. You might not even need to go out if you don't want to...or... More

Rooms were small, but wasn't shockingly so considering this is Tokyo. But the furnishing was rather old and musty. Disappointed that there was no in-room Wifi and was forced to make trips to the lobby for the hotel Wifi (though admittedly, not overly unusual for hotels of such calibre in Tokyo). Had to communicate with staff using Mandarin as they... More

The room was small but adequate. The hotel is close to shopping areas and a 10-15 minute walk to the train station. Wifi only available in the lobby but was unable to connect for pretty much the two nights we were there.
