I loved staying at this hotel! The neighborhood is lively and pleasant, with lots of places for eating and shopping. The staff was kind and helpful, and spoke more english than most places. The room was tiny, but the price was really reasonable. The breakfast was all right, many different things to choose between, but I ended up buying stuff... More

The location is great, 10 mins walk from the station. There are tons of restaurants in the area, family mart next door, starbucks around the corner. There is the Sunshine mall with a Tokyu hands just a couple of blocks away, movie houses, bowling alley and other retail stores too. Ikebukuro is a nice area to use as a home... More

Room It's not big and good enough to fit luggage and simply stay for bed and shower. Location It's a bit hidden in Ikebukuro as it's not on main road but then once you know how to get there you will find it actually enjoys superb location and convenience. Just 5 mins walk from JR Ikebukuro station. Convenience The 24-hr... More

We were happy with our room (double room on the 15th floor), small, but adequat, bathroom is 'like new'. We had stayed at smaller rooms in Japan. I had enjoyed the complimentery beverage offered at a station by our elevator. Hot and cold olong tea, hot water for your own tea, and lemon iced tea. The 'grain tea' is very... More

Stinky, old! Horrible experience staying here. It is well located but the whole hotel reeks of cigarette smoke. Also the internet does not work! Was very disappointed, most horrible experience at a hotel ever. Would never, ever stay here again! The bedspreads reek of cigarette smoke and the rooms are tiny! We ended up moving hotels because it was so... More

Very good location, lots of nice restaurants around, very small double room with centralized air cond which I dislike as it gets pretty warm at night, Below average service from front office. Will find elsewhere to stay on next visit to Tokyo.

Location: Very good, in the bustling streets of Ikebukuro. 5 minutes from the Yamonote Line. Service: Speaks good english. And when i go back to the hotel in the afternoon... More

We spent 4 nights here on our last trip to Tokyo. For Tokyo, the room size is excellent. The rooms are modest but so was the price. Most importantly they are spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and the standard thoughtful amenities that seem exclusive to Japanese hotels. There is free wifi, but it is limited to the lobby. There is... More

Centrally located hotel 5 minutes walk from ikebukuro railway station. Very few people can converse in English. The hotel upkeep needs improvement. In our 5 days stay we were made to change our rooms three times. Breakfast is quite sumptuous. Hotel staff is helpful.
