The location is very accessable, with 2-3 minutes walk from JR/Metro station, and easy to find the hotel. Have 24 conveniecnes store at G/F and with 1~2 minutes walking distance to look for ramen restuarant which also open 24hours. Room is small, but clean enough! But valuable ...

Loacation is fine. It takes about 8minutes to walk to the station. We stay here because it's the Tokyo Marathon's contract hotel. The Tokyo Marathon deal is good. But the room is really tiny. If you don't mind the size of the room. It's clean and with fine loacation .

I liked this place, clean, neat and the standard rooms are not too cramped, considering they are in the middle of Tokyo. I have stayed in other Tokyo hotels and sometimes you feel like you paid for a capsule, not here, you actually do have two or three feet of floor space (a little more, but you get what I... More

It took me and the 3 other guys I came with a while to find this place but its actually quite close to ikebukuro station. The staff were very accomodating and helped us out. I love the kimono we got as a gift.

The room is quite small, but has all the basic amenities. Wired internet works well, except for Skype connectivity issue. Dismal view of railway lines, and train noise quite noticeable, plus a lot of noise from corridor outside room. Handy for JR station and sights.

Friendly staff, excellent location, free internet (if you brought your own laptop)! The bathroom was bigger than I expected and my room faced the train tracks, but I barely heard the sound of passing trains. My mother is a light sleeper and even she said she couldn't hear the trains at night. The hotel is situated very near to the... More

I agree with other reviews in that the hotel is (obviously) unexpensive and very close to the station. For me, however, it was a nightmare because of the noise coming from the passing trains (and Ikebukuro is the 2nd busiest station in the world!). I used the hotel just one night to rest from my intercontinental flight from Europe. It... More

The hotel is not only very close to the station but also the shopping area. You will be able to find everything you expect to buy from good looking suit, gadget, music instrument, game, toy, 100 Yen store to many shopping malls for girls and ladies. If you feel hungry, you can grab a quick meal from AMPM at the... More

Dai-Ichi was a great find ! We were surprised to find a very reasonably priced hotel in Tokyo, and the rooms were large, quiet & pleasant. Ikebukuro suburb is spread out over 2 sides of the JR train line, but the whole precinct is easily reached on foot from the hotel (via underpasses both beside & through the station).I took... More
