The room is too small, and the bed is too small. I hate this place

We booked on-line through booking.com. The only advantage of this hotel is that it is close to the station. Rooms are ultra-small, bathrooms a cubicle where we couldn't stay upright and the beds almost the size of a baby cot. A 120 cm wide bed is considered a 'normal' double bed! When pointing out that we are two grown up... More

The hotel is very close to the Ikebukuro station. The rooms and bathrooms are very tiny. It's pretty clean and the hotel staff is quite nice. Free breakfast is also provided, Western and Japanese style--both are pretty good

My brother and I stayed here for one night. As my arrival time into Tokyo Narita was quite late in the evening, I wanted a convenient hotel close to a station on the Narita Express route so I could go straight there with no hassle. This hotel is maybe a 4-5 minute walk from Ikebukuro station. It is quite a... More

Great location, but rooms are tiny and beds are even smaller, tall persons and broader persons cannot share the bed or room. Bathroom is also very small. Beds are old. Single rooms are more acceptable. Hotel needs upgrading badly. Inspite of all these, it is still clean, convenient, staff are friendly. Best of all is, it is next to a... More

Not sure if this hotel is under new management or what, but words cannot describe what an awful experience we had here. We were recommended this hotel by someone who had stayed previously. What we found was a far cry from what we were described. This hotel is dirty from top to bottom. There is no excuse for it. More... More

As someone already pointed out, it's a no frills hotel. Not to say it's a dump, but it could probably do with a bit of revamp, and it's defence it's a business hotel. Despite this, it's in a great location, only 4 stops to Shinjuku, about 5mins walk from the Ikebukuro station, the staff are all very friendly and helpful... More

Hotel is located within 10 minutes walking distance from Ikebukuro station west exit. Not too near to all the happenings as most of the activities are located east of Ikebukuro station. I love the free internet access as I'm on a free and easy trip and needs constant access to information on places I like to visit. My room is... More

This was the first hotel we stayed in on our Japan trip. It is a 8 minute walk from the Ikebukuro station. The area it is in is pleasant with a variety of convenience stores, restaurants, take away food joints and even a drycleaners up the road. Our twin room was a decent size and was clean and well provisioned.... More

This hotel is located in Ikebukuro, north east of Tokyo. Some staff speaks English. It looks like it’s a family run business. Breakfast is a choice between western or Japanese. Unfortunately, it’s almost the same menu everyday. The rooms not extremely small as I had initially feared but at a reasonable size. There is an elevator in the hotel. Check... More

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.
